      Mobilemaster, 17 Jul 2022Which Samsung phone had 10x optical zoom 3 years ago?Sorry, you are right , I somehow thought that the note 20 ultra had the 10x , but it seems s21ultra was the first with 10x

        I found out from the review that the 1" sensor in the 12S Ultra is a native 4:3 sensor. Now that is worth exploring since Sony's 1" sensor in the Xperia Pro-I is a native 3:2 sensor.

Only common knowledge is that Xiaomi historically always had band issues. No one tells if that's still the case or not and some people give false information that it's not an issue anymore. Which makes selecting a Xiaomi for Europe a nightmare and annoyance.

                        HYtu, 17 Jul 2022iPhone 14 will be a much better choice than Xiaomi.Outdated hardware and software of iPhone will always be in a league below Android flagships

I've had incredibly poor speeds with LTE on Xiaomi that was imported from China, so importing this to Europe would have the exact same issues. Sigh.

                            band support of Xiaomi 12s Ultra Chinese version
                            5G: N1/3/5/8/28a/38/40/41/77/78/79,no mmwave support
                            4G:FDD:B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/18/19/26,have B26 band but lack of B20 Band which used in EU
                            TDD:B34/38/39/40/41/42

                              Seems like a step in the right direction for smartphone camera technology. But kinda pointless for use in the West without an international variant with the necessary U.S. 5G bands. Still, for me it ultimately comes down to whether Xiaomi phones can be trusted:

                                    This device would easily be €1250 (same 8/256GB) in European Union area.
