Xiaomi 12 Pro Review
The digital series is the first line of Xiaomi mobile phone products, these are Xiaomi 1, Xiaomi 2, these classic models, and now there are MIX, Civi and other series, and even the whole Redmi brand.
The digital series can be said to be the backbone of Xiaomi mobile phones, as well as one of the largest groups of Xiaomi mobile phone users. In terms of positioning, almost all generations of digital series are based on the basic principles of stacking materials, establishing the first equipment and advanced technology in general.
Unfortunately, the development of mobile phones has ceased to be just a stack of hardware, but the joint configuration of hardware and software, Xiaomi did not focus earlier on this point, as a result of which the configuration did not lose, the experience was not done. win the argument. But also let me understand that setting up the heap is just one aspect, the most important aspect is still the experience, that is, the sense of use.
Xiaomi’s response is relatively fast, the software level has been fixed one by one this year, the release of MIUI 12.5, which can be called the main update version, and Xiaomi 12 has begun, the digital series has begun to transform, advertising exterior is visible in the most direct way.
Before the launch of the Xiaomi 12 series, warm-up information rarely mentions hardware configuration, almost always experience-oriented, Lei Jun repeatedly emphasized the experience of death, which is the first for a digital series to know that the past is the first. innovation and other words, and Xiaomi 12 used only three words: “faster, more stable.”
This time, Xiaomi has introduced three models, respectively, Xiaomi 12X, Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, two body sizes, of which the basic configuration of Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro is the same, directly against Apple, for the first time to debut. a double size.
There are an “even number of genuine flagships” among xiaom6 fans, which means that if Xiaomi’s digital series matches an even number, it’s worth buying, though flirting means more, Xiaomi’s performance over the past two years seems to be close to this one. statement. How does the Xiaomi 12 Pro work? Then take a look at the review of the Xiaomi 12 Pro.

Xiaomi 12 Pro Specifications The work of Xiaomi 12 provides the blue/violet colour of the glass material of the three AGs, as well as the genuine leather version of the original wild green colour, in the hands of this colour scheme.
On the front screen of the Xiaomi 12 Pro, the square shape is cancelled, replaced by a centred, hyperbolic hole design, and the main flagship is the same, the R-angle of the body is more rounded and smooth, in line with visual perception, the Lower control panel is fine, the overall look is moderate, but unfortunately without the edge of the front camera under the screen, is it set aside for next year’s mega cup?
First look at the front of Xiaomi 12 Pro and the usual flagship is not very different, choose a mature screen with micro curved shapes, for the Xiaomi digital series seems to be more careful, and the parameters are also updated regularly.
Xiaomi 12 Pro uses a 6.73-inch AMOLED display with 3200 x 1440 pixels, Samsung E5 material, second-generation LPTO, 552 PPI, full-screen brightness up to 1000 nits, a maximum brightness of 1500 nits, update frequency compatibility of 120 Hz and a sampling rate of ten fingers of 480 Hz. plus JNCD ≈ 0.43 △ E ≈ 0.4, dual ambient and backlight sensors, 10-bit colour depth, etc.
Xiaomi said that this second-generation 2K low-power display screen, the reason is in four aspects, respectively, E5 light-emitting material, second-generation LTPO, Micro-Lens microprism technology, all belong to the hardware level to reduce power consumption, the focus is yet to see if the software layer can play a role, which is why the Xiaomi 12 Pro has a built-in feature called smart dynamic refresh rate.
This feature allows the screen to reach a smooth variable speed, if the memory does not change, it should be the first Android, that is, the refresh rate will follow the slider screen and change, for example, from top to bottom in this simple scrolling operation, the screen refresh rate will slowly decrease from the screen motion speed, from 120 Hz to 90 Hz, then up to 60 Hz, 30 Hz and finally up to 10 Hz, this practice is very energy saving.
But after testing, it looks like only the Xiaomi app is currently supported, other third-party apps aren’t supported yet, I hope they can be added later.
In addition, using second-generation LTPO technology, Xiaomi’s side has performed some optimization of the screen refresh rate, for example, reading e-books, viewing an image – 1 Hz, while typing – 60 Hz, the flow of information while if displayed increases rapidly. at 120 Hz, combined With this software setup, Xiaomi has only named the second generation of the low-power 2K display.
Xiaomi 12 Pro still retains the vegetable leather material, the back for a rectangular camera design, including three cameras and a dual-colour temperature flash, where the lens module has a small linear split detail. The body of Xiaomi 12 Pro has some small unintentional details, as the volume keys have also done a special treatment, invisibly increasing the feeling of sophistication of the whole machine.
So the degree of protrusion of the lens, compared to the Xiaomi 11 Pro, is very “drop”, for a high-end flagship is a must, check the assembly and design process, this Xiaomi 12 Pro can not be blamed.
Xiaomi 12 Pro along with the vegetarian leather material is quite unexpected, it may look more high quality and the surface texture is delicate, soft to the touch, it is said that the use of environmentally-friendly vegetarian leather, the addition of 0 organic solvents, of eco-friendly polyurethane, reduces energy consumption, reduces carbon emissions.
One said that vegetarian skin feels better than glass, especially because the temperatures are lower in winter, the feeling of vegetarian skin is not as cool as glass.
Top of the case: speaker, infrared port, Harman Kardon logo, microphone.
At the bottom of the box are a speaker, a USB Type C port, a microphone, and a SIM card slot.
Includes 120 W charger and carrying case.

2. System and characteristics
Xiaomi 12 Pro runs the stable version of MIUI 13 based on Android 12, did not expect the factory pre-installed update of the main version of MIUI 13, you can see that MIUI has been polished for a long time, the new version may have been installed stably.
When the author first opened the phone, he didn’t realize it was MIUI 13, he always thought it was MIUI 12.5 because the interface and icons haven’t changed much, compared to previous generations of radical improvements, MIUI 13 doesn’t seem radical, but when you think about MIUI’s performance over the past two years, you may also feel relieved, and Xiaomi’s recent strategy is to stabilize the situation.
Since this is an update of the main version, try to talk a little about the new features, there is no longer much space in MIUI 12.5.
The main interface has hardly changed, the negative screen has taken on a new look, the content is more aggregated, the information is intuitive and understandable, the typography seems convenient, there is no text logo under the icon, everything seems simpler.
