    SCMP: Xiaomi founder Lei Jun vows to challenge Apple with sharpened focus on the global high-end smartphone market

    Challenging in retail price but their software and hardware departments… Lei Jun always forgor to includes with the price tag!

    My experience hands-on: OVERHEATED, Using JN1 for uw and tele, OVERPRICED, Inferior UI&UX They need to reduced from 1k $|€|£ RRP to 800ish

        SMYasir, 19 Mar 2022Their GPUs suck tho It's not theirs. It's qualcomm's. You want the fastest, get the latest iPhones. You want an overpriced smartphone with the same GPU/CPU as this, get the latest scamsung.

          Xiaomi must throw MIUI in the dumpster and write a their new UI overlay for Android, like Samsung did with Samsung Experience and created new One UI

              Let's see, what does the introduction page of this review say..?

              > Video capture: Front camera: 1080p@30/60fps, 720p@120fps.

              I have no idea where you got the "locked at 1080p 30fps" part, but you're welcome. As for the video quality, they didn't test it so I can't tell.

                Anonymous, 18 Mar 2022So selfie camera locked at 1080p 30FPS with poor quality is... moreMy 11T pro's front camera is shockingly good that I have no idea why Xiaomi stressed the "ok" triple rear cameras without using this front one as a selling point. Perhaps because on paper it is as dull as a rusty axe, that even they did not realize the holy thing they created (I find myself having excuses to use th eportrait mode even though I never use front cameras)

                      Nick Tegrataker, 16 Mar 2022It's for the selfie camera, like literally who cares?So selfie camera locked at 1080p 30FPS with poor quality is acceptable? If you are a hardcore Xiaomi fan then yes. S22 and iPhone 13 have sjgnificantly better front camera quality. And I use the front camera frequently.

                                21 minutes from 0-100% ? that's a charging rate of almost 3C on average
                                No matter how much the want to spin it, it will degrade the batteries very fast.

                                  Once they told us that then headphone jack had to go to increase the IP rating.

                                  This phone has neither.

                                  This is progress?

                                    The 888 and 8gen1 were so bad i would take any mid ranger over a flagship this year if given both for free.That power drain and heat output is insane.These chips are a better fit for a small laptop or something.

Only the extreme corners are slightly soft, but this lens is easily one of the sharpest (if not the sharpest) I've seen so far. All things considered, I would say 12 Pro has a better main camera than Nova 9, especially in low light.

                                        How did the 12 Pro whiff in the speaker department while the regular 12 didn't?
