4. Multiple Cameras for Photo Creations
In terms of photography, the Redmi Note 12 is equipped with three rear cameras consisting of a 50 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide and a 2 MP macro. While on the front there is a 13 MP camera.
The presence of multiple cameras allows users to be creative in producing interesting and unique photos. By default, the main camera will produce 12.5MP photos because it uses 4-in-1 pixel binning technology to absorb a lot of light and have rich colors.
However, users are still available with a 50MP mode to produce large photos. The presence of an ultra-wide camera will facilitate the immediate production of wide-area photos, while a macro camera can be used to capture objects at close range.
The 13MP front camera is good enough to produce good selfies. There’s also a Night Mode that allows the rear and front cameras to produce photos that are bright and with minimal noise compared to using auto mode.
Moreover, the camera of this mobile phone is capable of producing 1080p @ 30fps video which has become the standard video resolution of a mobile phone camera today.

This is of course useful because you can’t control electronic devices because you forgot to put the remote. Therefore, as an alternative, you can use the Redmi Note 12 to become a replacement remote control.
This device is also equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality that makes it easy for users to make digital payments, check or top up e-money card balances and transfer data.
Cons of Redmi Note 12
1. No dynamic refresh rate
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 is not equipped with a Dynamic Refresh Rate function, so the refresh rate cannot be automatically changed depending on the content displayed on the screen.
The system in this mobile phone only provides two options to lock the refresh rate 120Hz and 60Hz. Although it’s capable of producing smooth transitions between menus and game animations, the 120Hz refresh rate consumes quite a bit of power.
When the user wants to save more battery power, it is necessary to lock the refresh rate to 60 Hz. In fact, it’s a good thing that the Redmi Note 12 has a Dynamic Refresh Rate feature to provide more efficient power usage without degrading the user experience.
2. Camera shutter is a bit long in low light conditions
This phone has main camera support with high resolution up to 50 MP. However, the camera shutter is a bit long when shooting subjects, especially in low light conditions.
This could be due to a number of factors, ranging from software wanting to increase the sharpness of photos so that they are not blurry, or it could be that this mobile phone is indeed a bit limited when in lighting conditions.
However, if the camera shutter pauses too often or for a long time, it will affect the use and deteriorate the photo quality if it moves before the mobile phone has finished taking the photo.
