Reviews for the Xiaomi 12X

87.9% Xiaomi 12X Smartphone Review - Xiaomi's Most Affordable 12-Series Premium Smartphone | Notebookcheck
The Xiaomi 12X is a rather good-looking and conveniently compact smartphone offering plenty of power for comparatively little money. At the time of writing, it was Xiaomi's most affordable gateway to their premium series of smartphones. Let's take a look, shall we?
Xiaomi 12X Review 3 Months Later - Better Than The 12 Pro!

Xiaomi 12X Review 3 Months after release, I think it's better than the Xiaomi 12, and Xiaomi 12 Pro for most people! It's cheaper, great size. No overheating issues and the same build as the larger model. Xiaomi 12X NFC 5G Smartphone

65% Xiaomi 12X review: Petite, problematic powerhouse
Source: Android Police English
The more I'm using the Xiaomi 12X, the more I'm appreciating the form factor. Thanks to its curved screen, it fits perfectly in the hand, even when using the transparent case that comes with it, and I absolutely love the fingerprint-rejecting etched glass back. I was even able to find remedy for the awful edge touch rejection I've experienced by decreasing the sensitivity in settings. It baffles me that the phone doesn't ship with that option enabled by default, as I haven't noticed any downsides like rejected intentional touches on the sides of the screen. Of course, most of these things can probably be said about regular Xiaomi 12 that comes in the same form factor but with a better processor, a newer Android version, and wireless charging, so this isn't a unique selling point. In fact, everything I really like about the 12X can also be found on the regular 12, which is arguably a better phone. My conviction that the 12X only exists to tempt you to get the 12 instead has just been strengthened this past month.

The Xiaomi 12X is a good overall device that will catch the eye of a few prospective phone buyers for a number of reasons. First, the device is on the smaller side compared to other flagship smartphones and despite its $649 price, it looks and feels like a well-made and premium device. While you aren’t getting the latest chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 870 is still plenty powerful for everyday tasks. Plus you’re still getting a 120Hz AMOLED display, fast 67W charging and a set of cameras that works well in most situations. There are some downsides to the Xiaomi 12X like the lack of wireless charging, official waterproofing and MIUI won’t be to everyone’s tastes. If you want better cameras, look to the Pixel 6, otherwise the Realme GT 2 will be an excellent choice if your heart isn't set on a metal and glass design.

65% Xiaomi 12X review: Petite problematic powerhouse
Source: Android Police English
Rather not. The company is using the $650 12X to upsell you to the more expensive models, with some arbitrary limitations on the processor, wireless charging capabilities, and software update promises to serve as a reason to entice you to get the $750 Xiaomi 12 instead. If you don’t care for these or absolutely need to save that $100, then the Xiaomi 12X might be the top-of-the-line Xiaomi phone for you, though. Luckily for Xiaomi, the company is mostly catering towards markets that don’t offer the Google Pixel lineup, so the obvious conclusion — just get a Pixel 6 instead — might not be an option. Instead, the Xiaomi 12X should make you think really hard about what you value in a smartphone. Are you content with a petite, easy-to-hold smartphone with excellent battery life? Or would you rather pay just a little more for a phone that will offer software and security updates for the foreseeable future, if you've got your eyes set on a Xiaomi phone?

Obviously, there are better phones than the 12X, even if there is no match for its display. The Xiaomi 12X is a brand-new phone, and as it always happens, aging flagships are now cheaper and sometimes a preferable purchase over the 12X. Still, the Xiaomi 12X is an easily likable smartphone with a reasonable price in 2022 terms, and we think it has everything to become a best-seller. Our suggestion for you is to exhaust all options around the €650-€700 price range, weigh the pros and cons, and then proceed to buy what suits you best. We are sure you will like the Xiaomi 12X as we did if you decide to get it. We do recommend this phone even at this price, though we will do it even more passionately when it gets its first price cut.

Xiaomi 12X Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Undoubtedly, the Xiaomi 12X is an excellent phone that brings a robust set of attributes, though it’s not on par with the latest gen chipset phones. But still, it will outperform the Pixel 6 series, and brings better processing result. The camera quality is enhanced with the AI software, while the photos and videos quality stays constant in each mode. Battery life might feel underwhelming for heavy usage. But overall the Xiaomi 12X is an astounding phone that offers an elegant design layout. However, for some reason, you didn’t like the phone, the Motorola Edge X30 is a decent alternative.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Xiaomi:

Xiaomi Tech was founded as a Chinese smartphone producer in 2010 and soon reached high market shares in its home market. Although Xiaomi is not one of the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide in 2016, it is nevertheless one of the big global players in this market segment.

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.


77.35%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
