Redmi Note 12 Pro review

Redmi Note has always meant quality at the right price. The entire new Redmi Note 12 generation does not escape this consideration, which is available in four versions. Redmi Note 12 4G, Redmi Note 12 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro+ e Redmi Note 12 Pro 5Gthe subject of this review.
A device with a solid technical base and with everything needed for a positive daily user experience. Naturally, speaking of Redmi Note, one cannot fail to address the price issue, which becomes a fundamental factor for the success of the product. Well Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G, starts at 399 euros, a price point within the reach of a large number of users and even capable of further enhancing the perception of the device. Among other things, Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G has two Ram memory cuts, 6 or 8 GB (but with a single 128 GB storage cut), with a price list, which is positioned at 449 euros for the more performing version. It is important to underline that in the product launch phase and until April 30 the two models will be affected by a promo that cuts the price to 379 and 399 euros. But the success of these products is not only hidden in the price, but also and above all in important contents. The appeal does not lack a nice display, a fast battery charging system, a good camera compartment and also a remarkable feeling of build quality.


Il design di Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G it does not introduce particular innovations, but adapts to the family feeling of the more expensive models of the Xiaomi house. This does not mean that the phone is not beautiful, on the contrary… We were conquered by the flat section frame, which in addition to giving the design a lot of elegance, considerably increases the grip when holding the smartphone.
The rear portion with a glossy finish is beautiful, which has the only defect of getting dirty very easily. In this case it will be useful to use the transparent case supplied which, in addition to preventing fingerprints on the cover, also protects the smartphone from blows and falls. The rectangular section island that houses the cameras appears well integrated into the body and the thickness is really limited. In terms of dimensions, it is fair to point out a transversal size of less than 8 millimeters and a weight of 187 grams.

The display

Il display of the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G has important specifications. The Flow Amoled technology has allowed a reduction in the overall dimensions of the panel to the full advantage of the symmetries of the design and of the overall thickness, but it also guarantees excellent colours, which can also be manually calibrated, and a good level of brightness. Not only that, the screen is quite large, with a diagonal of 6.67 and has a Full HD resolution of 1,080×2,400 pixels and the possibility of using a refresh rate of up to 120HZ. A decidedly interesting display, also in consideration of the price range of the product.

L’hardware di Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G

The data sheet of the new Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G is well structured and allows the phone a good user experience. The SOC takes care of it Dimensity 1080 di Mediatek to power the device, a rather powerful and stable “propeller” in performance, capable of giving considerable vigor to the operations performed with the smartphone. The processor manages to adequately contain the operating temperatures, with relative advantages in terms of autonomy, because the battery does not have overheating problems and is able to supply all 5.000 mAh available, with a linear flow. Also important are the data regarding the recharging speed of the battery itself, which can accumulate energy a 67W and be fully charged in a very short time. On the memoirs front, we reiterate the presence of 128 GB storage and a double-edged Ram, from 6 o 8 GB.
Il fingerprint reader it is incorporated into the power button and is fast and reliable.

UI Experience

Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G is animated by Android 12, on which the MIUI 14, the historical interface of Xiaomi, a software full of functions and highly customizable. Many security features for data protection and other special features, such as ability to record screen oh you to clone a fair number of applications, to use multiple accounts. Those who usually make their smartphone a real command bridge for their activities will appreciate the presence of a IR transmitterwhich allows Redmi Note 12 pro 5G to transform into a remote control for TVs or peripherals compatible with this proven technology.

The camera

The camera represents an element of great interest of the new Redmi. The manufacturer has provided for a scheme with ultrawide, macro and standard units. We focus on ultrawide from 8 Megapixel and on the standard da 50 Megapixel because, as is now known, macro sensors with modest characteristics are easily overtaken by standard ones and by the intervention of artificial intelligence.
The main cam has an important pedigree, because it reproduces a mix used a few generations ago on some top of the range. We refer in particular to the sensore Sony IMX766, which provides important performance even in difficult environmental conditions. The system is also optically stabilized and this brings significant advantages, both for photos and videos. We tried to use this unit more frequently in our tests, because it also allows you to run zoom 2x without loss of detail and because the ultrawide camera appears decidedly less bright, especially when shooting in the dark. Yes it is true, the help of the night mode helps a lot, but it is clear that the 8 Megapixels available pay an important price to the 50 Megapixels of the standard unit. The yield is also good selfie camera, which has 16 Megapixels and can shoot videos up to Full HD at 60 fps; with the rear instead you get to 4k at 30 fps. The shots obtained in “portrait” mode are also valuable.

Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G Audio

The sound of the phone it is of a good standard. The speakers are stereo even if we preferred the ear capsule which, during telephone conversations, returns a warm audio and a rather high volume, a case that occurs again when the speakerphone is activated, but with some more metallic rebound. The stereo mode is also appreciated when listening to music content or managing streaming in general.

Mobile Magazine Awards: Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G

Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G won three Awards from our editorial staff. Even with some distinctions we appreciated the camera module, in particular for the presence of such a valuable sensor. The display also convinced us and the price is also well-centred, also in relation to the contents offered.

The judgment of Mobile Magazine

Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G is a successful smartphone, a device that honors the traditions of this range. A product with a solid technical base, a nice display, a lot of autonomy and a nice camera, all at a price far from the top of the range and within the reach of a large number of potential users.
