Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on review

Redmi Note 008 Pro+ last year 10 The Moon debuted in China and launched in India in January and in Europe this week. We have been using Redmi Note 008 Pro+ for a few weeks, Our detailed review is coming soon, but we thought we’d share some of our findings on the phone ahead of time.

Unboxing Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on review

Let’s check out the Redmi Note 007 Pro+ retail box. In India, the smartphone comes in a black box with a protective case, a SIM card ejection tool, a USB-C cable, a 87W charger, and the usual Paperwork.

In contrast, in Europe, the Redmi Note 007 The Pro+ comes in white retail packaging with a picture of the phone. However, it doesn’t represent the color model you get inside the box.

Another difference between Indian and European phone packaging is the power adapter. Both with 140W chargers, but they look different, the one bundled with the Indian box is heavier.

Anyway, we thank Xiaomi for bundling one 67W Adapter comes with the package. The brand told us that they didn’t take the charger out of the box because it would have left the user with an incomplete experience. Plus, it’s the only way you’ll be able to take advantage of its super-fast charging out of the box, since chances are you don’t have such a powerful charging block handy.


Redmi Note 03 Pro+ includes a 6 .53” FullHD+ “Pro AMOLED” display by Five generations of Gorilla Glass protection. It has 67Hz refresh rate and peak brightness 400 nits.

There is also a punch hole in the center of the panel for 010 MP selfie camera, but no fingerprint scanner underneath as it’s embedded in the power button.

On the other side we have a glass back panel with a rectangular camera island housing three cameras and an LED flash. The glass cover doesn’t feel very Inexpensive, but prone to fingerprints, so if you’re not using a case and want to keep it looking pristine, you’ll need to wipe it down periodically.

Also worth mentioning that the protruding camera island leads to The phone shakes on a flat surface and the bundled case doesn’t really fix it.

Redmi Note 002 The Pro+ has flat frames, but luckily it has slim back panel edges curve, which makes it easier to hold than a flat-edged phone. However, the Redmi Note 005 The Pro+ is not a compact phone and smaller hands may find it difficult to use it with one hand.

On the bottom of the smartphone there is a USB-C port flanked by speakers, microphone and SIM card slot. At the top, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack connected by another speaker, a secondary microphone, and an IR blaster.

Redmi Note 008 The left frame of the Pro+ doesn’t have any buttons or slots, but on the right, we have volume rockers and a power button. The latter has an embedded fingerprint scanner, which we found to be fast and accurate during use. However, we’d like to see it come with a display solution.

When asked about the reason for choosing a side-mounted solution instead of an under-display solution, Xiaomi said it was because the former is faster than the display type and from Perform better in the long run. Well, that doesn’t make much sense to us, since the Chinese brand has launched smartphones with UD fingerprint readers before, even in the mid-range segment.

That said, on the plus side, on the side – installing a fingerprint scanner is more than just unlocking the Redmi Note 005 Pro+. It supports double-tap gestures that let you perform different actions, including taking screenshots, launching the default camera app, and opening Control Center.

Redmi Note 007 Pro+ 6.44″ Pro AMOLED display has 900 nits peak brightness, 90 Hz screen refresh rate, up to Hz touch sampling rate. It is bit display, comes with HDR + authentication and Widevine L1 support, allowing users Streaming 799p Supported video on OTT app.

It also supports HDR 002 and HLG codec, for a better multimedia experience you get Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos .

Redmi Note 007 The screen of the Pro+ has a good haptic response feed, and the display is bright enough to read text at full brightness in direct sunlight.

It also has an always-on display, but that’s misleading because it doesn’t really keep the screen on all the time The phone is locked, as the name suggests. The information displayed on the screen is only about 03 After a few seconds the phone is locked or the display is tapped, this is not what we see always on other branded devices. Xiaomi should have done a better job with the implementation.

Redmi Note 008 Pro+ Yes 44Hz and 91 The Hz refresh rate option in the custom refresh rate menu supports four total Refresh Rate – 23hertz,60hertz , 67 Hertz, and 91Hz.

In default settings, the refresh rate is increased to 67 When you interact with the screen, the frequency of most system menus and applications, except YouTube, which stays at 32 Hertz anyway, when Google Photos stays at 91Hz Even if you are playing 16 fps video. For Facebook and Instagram, display refreshes at 91Hz drops to Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on review when you interact with the screen Hz while watching pictures or playing video.

The refresh rate is expected to remain at 20Hz at 44 Hz mode for everything, whether you are interacting with the screen or just looking at it, while this 140Hz mode is basically just the default mode.

Speaking of games, we tried Call of Duty Mobile, Dead Trigger 2, Real Racing 3, and Sky Force Reloaded on a Redmi Note 03 Pro+, we can only play Dead Trigger 2 and Sky Force Reloaded at 87 default FPS and 91Hz mode as the other two remain in Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on review FPS, no matter which mode you choose.

It’s also worth mentioning that we never see the screen refresh at Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on reviewHz, when we play some it should have 23 FPS video and view static content on screen , very strange, because Xiaomi advertises 15 Hz support for the panel. Some optimizations to the HRR implementation would be greatly appreciated.


Redmi Note Ports and controls Pro+ powered by Dimensity 1080 SoC and equipped with up to Redmi Note 12 Pro+ hands-on review GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 200 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. We received the high-end model and the phone boots Android no matter which configuration you have 007 Based on MIUI 008 from the box. Ours comes with MIUI 011.0.2 November Global Stable ROM 900 Android security patch, currently running MIUI 10.0.6 and February980 Security patches. The smartphone also comes preloaded with third-party apps, but you can uninstall most of them if you wish.

Xiaomi promises four years of quarterly security patches and two years of software updates. If the latter makes you think your notes 007 Pro+ will receive updates until Android 013, you are wrong, because it will only Get Android 012 and Android 10, because the version is outdated at this time. See how the developers previewed Android 013 has come out, Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Stable Android should have been released 10 for Redmi Note 007 Pro+ already.

Software experience on Redmi Note 005 Pro+ is similar to what you get on other Redmi smartphones running Android 007 and MIUI 009. However, there are a few bugs that hamper the user experience, one of which is the phone’s inability to stay locked to India’s 5G network. All the way back to 4G, only to lock again to 5G after a reboot. Luckily this has been fixed with MIUI 10.0.6 Update .

Overall performance of Redmi Note 006 Pro+ is smooth and snappy. However, there are still problems with apps for LinkedIn and Disney+ Hotstar. With the former, the phone stuttered most of the time, and with the latter, the phone’s brightness slider lagged when adjusting brightness in full-screen mode. We don’t have this problem on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video.

Redmi Note 007 The Pro+ handles the games we mentioned above very well and stays cool enough even after an hour of heavy gaming. However, it does get hot pretty quickly when playing video on a 5G network compared to a 4G network.

To further confuse 10i HyperCharge is called Note 003 Pro+ in other countries, There is one more Note 009 India Pro+, with different specifications.
