Aierlan, 28 Dec 2021The only real selling point of the Xiaomi 12 is the size. I... moreI assume you're talking about the price today with price cuts, because :"The Mi 11 Pro in its 8/128GB trim retails for CNY 4,999 ($762). It’s also available in 8/256GB version for CNY 5,299 ($807) as well as a 12/256GB model for CNY 5,699 ($868)."

There might be a reason for camera downgrades, maybe Xiaomi and Samsung had a deal since the Mi Note 10's 108 MP, or they were just disappointed by the GN2 and decided to go with a Sony sensor even if it's a smaller sensor with smaller pixels.
For the telephoto, maybe they thought having a higher quality zoom is more important than having more reach, the 11 Pro had a 5x periscope telephoto but with a 8 MP sensor.

Camera is a bit downgrade from Mi11 and screen is now smaller....

Xiaomi 12 or Samsung S21FE? I have a Xiaomi Mi9T Pro at the moment and I'm familiar with MIUI system. No troubles so far. :)

I think vivo x70 is a better option🤷‍♂️

Both underwhelming...

Xiaomi is slowly making these two weaker to lure people to Ultra.
Exactly dirty move done by samsung.

Usb2.0
Pro with 48mm camera, also 1/2.8" , periscope just for Ultra.
Vanilla with 1080p when previous was QHD.

Wth? Price range between 12 and 12x is so marginal. There's no point buying 12x.

>QHD, 120Hz, Snapdragon 8 Gen1
>4600mAh

Do not mock SNOY!!!
It is a subliminal message!

Note 20U with LTPO : battery life is great with 4500mah battery ( old LTPO rech)
S20U without LTPO gets stupid battery life with 5000mah

That's why most of tech sites say people at gsma comments lack brain cells

Samsung will use for 22/22+ snapdragon variant.

AnonD-1030868, 28 Dec 2021It's LTPO screenLTPO means nothing to battery life

Every phone that comes out with it disappoints in battery life check reviews here on gsmarena

It cannot offset battery demands from the processor and other components in any meaningful way
