The Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus 5G is a budget smartphone. But if the photo department takes precedence over all other aspects of the device, think twice before falling in love with Xiaomi’s new mid-range smartphone.
Xiaomi has just unveiled its new Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus 5G smartphone, which aims to impress buyers with a 200-megapixel sensor on the main camera. But the experts from DxOMarka website that rates the performance of smartphones and cameras, tested the device to determine if its performance met the advertised technical specifications.
The results obtained were not very satisfactory. In the DxOMark ranking, the mid-range camera ranks 74th with only 113 points. The first classified Honor Magic 5 Pro instead scored 152 points with a 50 MP sensor. Other devices in the same price range also offer better images with fewer pixel sensors, such as the Pixel 6, which comes in 39th place with 126 points.
However, these disappointing results should not make us forget that the smartphone also has other qualities to offer. For example, the affordable price of the device, which will surely be reduced further to boost sales, could attract many customers looking for value for money. In addition, the device has very interesting technical specifications, such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, LPDDR5 RAM and 5000 mAh battery.
Although the mid-range smartphone is not positioned at the top of the DxOMark ranking, it could still satisfy the needs of many users who are looking for an affordable but powerful device. So it’s up to the buyer to decide whether the stated specs are as important as the camera’s actual results in real life.
