Reviews for the Xiaomi 12T Pro 5G

87.7% Xiaomi 12T Pro 5G review: Smartphone with 200 MP and Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 at an attractive price | Notebookcheck
The Xiaomi 12T Pro houses high-end specs at the price of a premium smartphone. These include a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, a 200 MP camera, a fast 120 Hz AMOLED display, and a fast charging function with 120 watts. Read on to find out where Xiaomi has made cuts to its flagship killer.
Xiaomi 12T Pro hands-on review: pixel pusher
Source: Stuff TV English
Don’t think of the 12T Pro as a mid-life upgrade of the Xiaomi 12 Pro – it’s a more mainstream alternative, with a lower price and hardware that isn’t quite as cutting edge. That said, there’s lots here to like – not least the £699 starting price, which bests Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy S22, the OnePlus 10 Pro, and Motorola’s Edge 30 Ultra. While Xiaomi has impressed with its image processing algorithms in the past, and its rapid charging abilities give an edge over Samsung and Apple, we’ll need to properly test the battery and take a lot more photos before we can give a final verdict. The glass/plastic construction and somewhat tepid secondary cameras might also make you pause before opening your wallet. Based on first impressions, though, performance and display image quality are easily worth the price of admission.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem. Compared to the non plus version, the 8+ Gen 1 offers a 200 MHz higher clocked Prime Core and a 10% higher clocked GPU. Furthermore, it is now produced at TSMC and not Samsung.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
