Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro+ - What can the 200-megapixel camera do?
Naturally, Xiaomi needs a selling point for the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G - something that makes the phone unique in the eyes of buyers. In this case, the manufacturer advertises the gigantic 200 megapixels of the main camera.
But does this really make a difference in everyday life? Our detailed review of the smartphone reveals that the camera can indeed take sharp and detailed photos, but it hardly distinguishes itself from the cheaper Redmi Note 12 Pro in terms of overall image quality. The mid-range device falls behind the best smartphone cameras, especially in low light.
However, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ has other arguments that clearly speak in favor of the phone, which costs around US$500: the super-fast 120 watt charging, for example, which enables the completely empty battery to be fully recharged again in a maximum of 30 minutes. And if you forget to plug the smartphone into the socket overnight, you can simply plug it into the charger for a few minutes and you'll have enough energy for several hours.
The ample flash storage of 256 GB is also pleasing, especially as it is quite fast in our test. In addition, there is the bright and color-accurate OLED screen, which, however, also has PWM. Sensitive people should definitely try the screen out before buying in case they are prone to headaches or eye irritation as a result.
In terms of performance, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ is suitable for everyday use, but there is still room for improvement in this price range.
Accurate positioning capabilities and stable performance under load make the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ a good choice overall.
