The Xiaomi 12 Pro is a phone that puts entertainment first

Last year, Xiaomi managed to grab the second spot in the global smartphone market by pushing Apple to third. A seriously impressive feat, even though it was just for one quarter.

The company sells a ton of phones priced under $300 worldwide, and that has helped it get ahead in the volume game.

But it hasn’t earned its stripes in the flagship device arena. Perhaps that’s why it has included almost every top-end feature you can think of in its latest Xiaomi 12 Pro phone.

I’ve been using it for the last few weeks, and it was really fun. The 12 Pro had me playing games and watching videos for hours a day because of its top-notch screen. Plus, it comes with a stupid fast charger.

With this, Xiaomi is putting a strong contender against the latest flagships of Oppo, Samsung, and OnePlus to be a top dog of the Android world.

Before we talk about all that, here are the device’s impressive specifications.

The best bits

The Xiaomi 12 Pro’s design is not revolutionary or pathbreaking, but the frosty textured glass on the back and curved sides makes it easier to grip. And that’s all I have to say about the structure.

The screen is definitely the star of the show. It’s colorful, bright, and vibrant, which makes it delightful to use for apps, games, and videos.
