How does Xiaomi 12T Pro take photos?
The Xiaomi 12T Pro occupies the first position in the ranking of premium smartphones (those between 600 and 800 dollars), leaving behind products such as the iPhone 13 Mini and the iPhone 12. It obtains an average of 129 points. The highest rating is for the video part (134), followed by the photographic part (130). It goes down to 101 for zoom, down to 70 and 71 for bokeh effect and preview fidelity.
According to DxOMark, the smartphone manages to capture a good dose of detail in bright light and indoors, while the result drops a little if you use the flash. Good exposure and colors, as well as detail in telephoto shots. For videos, the good exposure, wide dynamic range and effective video stabilization were appreciated.
There are many less compelling aspects, according to the portal. Among these are the limited dynamic range, the presence of artifacts and ghosting (the unwanted blurring effect on photos), underexposure on night shots, lack of detail on ultra shots wide-angle, and sudden exposure changes in videos. And also, autofocus errors in videos.
It is no coincidence that he finished 18th overall.
