Xiaomi’s latest phone release included two phones, the standard 12 and the pricier 12 Pro. How do they compare? Keep reading to find out!
What’s the Same
- Snapdragon 8 Gen-1 processor
- 120Hz refresh rate
- 65W fast charging
- 6.2-inch display
- Macro setting on the camera
The Xiaomi 12 is so similar to the Xiaomi 12 Pro that choosing between the two might be difficult. The choice lies in what you like your phone to do when it comes down to it.
The Xiaomi 12 is smaller, so if pocket-friendliness is critical, it might be ideal.
Or perhaps you want the fastest charging, at which point the Xiaomi 12 Pro would be best.
Maybe your primary use for your phone is media and gaming. Then the larger screen of the Pro would be better suited to you.
Either way, the two phones are virtually the same. Both are highly capable devices.
Trusted Reviews says, “To conclude, the biggest differences between the two mainly lie with the camera, the screen, and fast-charging. The Xiaomi 12 Pro is likely to have a better all-around camera performance thanks to its more impressive secondary sensors, and it’s got a bigger and sharper display as well, while its fast-charging also outstrips that of its little brother. That said, the Xiaomi 12 really doesn’t lag that far behind where it matters, and still has plenty of impressive specifications to its name as well.”

Prices (Where to Buy)
The 12 price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Xiaomi 12 prices from around the web here on The Informr.
Xiaomi backs up the 12 with a 2 Years parts & labour warranty.
If your 12 has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Xiaomi support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Xiaomi's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.
