Xiaomi has mainly had success in our country with its affordable devices. Nevertheless, the company is doing everything it can to complement the premium market as well. The Xiaomi 12 Pro is an excellent example of that attempt in that regard.
There are things you can question, but the 12 Pro also does a lot right. That’s why we’re listing some of the big pluses for you.
Xiaomi 12 Pro: five big pluses
The Xiaomi 12 Pro may cost a lot with a suggested retail price of €1099, but it also does some things really, really well. The following, in positive ways, steal the show:
#1 Charging at 120W
The biggest advantage is without a doubt the charging speed of the smartphone. The Xiaomi 12 Pro is able to charge with a power of 120W. In rock-solid numbers: you need less than twenty minutes to charge the smartphone to 100%. Bizarre.
Consumers who prefer to charge their smartphones wirelessly are also in the right place, by the way. It is possible to charge the 12 Pro with an output of 50W via this route. In comparison, an iPhone 13 charges wired with an output of 20W.
#2 Xiaomi 12 Pro: delightful display
The display of the Xiaomi 12 Pro is one you can enjoy. The 6.73-inch display features a WQHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. This is variable, though, thanks to LTPO technology. So it adapts extremely well to the content you are watching or using.

#3 Excellent finishing
Another thing that is very nice is the build quality of the device. This time, the smartphone has a matte finish, which not only makes it feel nice. It also keeps out a lot of fingerprints.
In terms of looks, the camera system won’t suit everyone, but personally I think this is one of the tighter solutions. All in all, a feast for the eyes, then.

#4 Xiaomi 12 Pro: AI Camera Functionality
The Xiaomi 12 Pro’s camera system is focused on its three 50-megapixel lenses. Still, as far as I’m concerned, that’s not the most enjoyable functionality in this area. That title goes to the Xiaomi AI camera functions.
Thanks to artificial intelligence, you take advantage of pleasant features like ProFocus, One-Click and Ultra Night Video. Three delightful additions that know how to take your photos to the next level.

#5 Harmon Kardon speakers
The final item is the speakers of the Xiaomi 12 Pro. These feature the audio processing of Harmon Kardon. Something that does really benefit the smartphone. Don’t expect the impressive surround sound that certain gaming smartphones produce and these guys really don’t disappoint.
