Almost everyone was focusing on the Xiaomi 12 Pro when the Xiaomi 12 series was released therefore ignoring other models.
Most people don’t know how the Xiaomi 12 perform, of it’s good for gaming and other stuffs and that is what this post is aimed at. To show you the specifications and features that the Xiaomi 12 has and if it’s worth buying in 2022.

The Xiaomi 12 Build

Xiaomi 12 price in Nigeria

From the Xiaomi 12, the building has become more premium and sleek. It looks very simple but it’s well built. The back is with matte glass finish and it’s easy to get fingerprints when touched. But it is not slippery nor does it get scratches easily.

The shape of the Xiaomi 12 is just right and the thickness feels very comfortable on hand. The camera module has a very nice shape, the lines gives it a very neat and organized feeling like the Xiaomi 12 Pro.

The Xiaomi 12 design looks different than other Xiaomi this time it looks a more premium design.


The screen is a 6.28 INCH, 1080p, 120Hz, OLED Display and it also comes with the latest LTPO technology for improving battery efficiency. It has the highest touching sampling rate of 480 Hertz.

The peak brightness can go up to 1100 nits. It’s an edge curved screen. It Also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Protection. The screen is totally great except the resolution not being 2k.

The Xiaomi 12 fingerprint location is also on a fairly comfortable spot and it reads very fast.



The performance wide in normal room temperature was scored;

  • AnTuTu: 947150
  • Wide Life:9859
  • Geekbench Single Core:1172
  • Geekbench Multi Core:3597

It has SNAPDRAGON 8 Gen 1 which is very powerful as long as we can deal with the heat problem properly.

Is The Xiaomi 12 Good For Gaming?

In the gaming test with the highest imagine quality of PUBG, the average frame rate is capped at 51, maybe not impressive but the phone didn’t get that hot. After testing the whole process was smooth and even.

At the highest quality of Genshin impact, the average frame rate was 39.13. it was at 45 frame per second at the beginning but it dropped to 40 frame per second as the phone grew hot and went back to 45 frame per second again.

So when gaming you really have to depend on a good software optimisation to unleash it’s full potential or at least get a cooler or get it to work properly.

For those that are dedicated gamers these numbers probably doesn’t seem appealing. However the phone temperature is kept very steady instead of growing, glowing hot.

But the Xiaomi is not a dedicated gaming phone when it comes to high graphics considering many other options out there.



The camera set on the Xiaomi 12, the main camera is 50MP SONY imx 766 sensor with OIS and the other two camera are 5MP Macro camera and 13mp low travel camera.


The main camera has an eye catching style of tuning contrast and saturation is relatively higher. Sharpening algorithm also works really well though the Trace is a bit obvious.

It also has a good performance night mode and is even well presented. The dynamic range is very good and colors are still natural and correct except from being a little over saturated. It also has great motion blur


In ultra mode 123 degrees lens is not as annoying as 150 degrees ultra wide. The field of view is is just right. The color is less intense when comparing with the main camera and at night the performance is still good. Images are still sharp though the colors are less intense.

Dynamic range is not quite better than the main camera but still quite preferable and better than many other flagships.
The Auto focus of the ultra wide camera greatly increase the shooting experience.

The Xiaomi 12 also has a 2 times Telephoto lens.


The speakers in the Xiaomi 12 is great and it’s probably one of the Xiaomi’s strong suit.


As for the battery, it comes with a 67W fast charging and it takes 43 minutes of fast charging to fully charge the phone. Wireless fast charging is 50W and supports 10W of reverse wireless. This battery life is better and stronger than the Xiaomi 12 Pro.

Xiaomi 12 Price and Availability

 The starting price for the Xiaomi 12 starts at $749 (about ₦340,000 in Nigeria) for the 8GB/128GB model, $799 (about ₦363,000) for the 8GB/256GB model and $849 (about ₦386,000) for the 12GB/256GB model.


You’re also probably not going to pay much attention to the Xiaomi 12 while there are Xiaomi 12 Pro and many other options that are available.

However, if you have more affection towards a small screen and if you value a better battery life than anything else, then the Xiaomi 12 is doubtlessly going to beat the Xiaomi 12 Pro easily easily.

It even beat other android smartphones currently available. But without disadvantage the Xiaomi 12 Pro is obviously a better option with the bigger screen better specs and more features.
