Xiaomi 12S Ultra
Xiaomi 12S Ultra is a king even amongst flagships, with flagship features on the bleeding edge, with top of its class super AMOLED 120Hz screen, a triple camera arrangement, 67W fast charging & 50W wireless charging, a huge battery at 4860mAh and the latest 8+ Snapdragon chipset. It ticks pretty much every box, and then some. Add 5G to the mix and this phone is nothing but a beast! If anything, it’s very much a flagship, but not the most expensive on the market, which is a wonderful compromise!
Xiaomi 12S Ultra comes with a 6.73-inch AMOLED 120Hz screen with a center punch-hole design for the selfie camera, which makes this a slightly larger device compared to the other Xiaomi 12s. It’s a beautiful screen, with a screen-to-body ratio of 89.2%. It has a refresh rate of 120Hz refresh rate, an aspect ratio of 20:9, and supports HD10+ which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has an aluminum frame, a glass back and a Corning Gorilla Victus front panel. It is very bright and vivid, peaking at 1500 nits. It’s rated for IP68 dust and splash protection, making it waterproof at 1.5m for 30mins. unfortunately, it loses the headphone jack, just like it has been conspicuously missing from other phones in this range. It has an on-screen fingerprint sensor, in addition to secure face unlock. It supports stereo speakers, which offer great sound when playing media.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra is a beast with the latest flagship generation midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ 5G chipset, placing it on the top with the big boys. It has a Cortex Octa-core CPU paired with an Adreno 730 GPU, with storage options of 8/12 GB for RAM & 128/256/512 GB for ROM. It does not offer the expandable memory option. Paired with the 120Hz screen, running the latest Android 12 with One MIUI 13 skin on top, the performance feels very fast and premium. The MIUI 13 is rich in customizations, supporting numerous always-on-screen animations and true blacks. That is in addition to native Xiaomi apps and what’s good in the MUIU ecosystem. Everything feels fast, fluid, and rich in color.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra has a triple camera arrangement on the back. It has a decent 50 MP primary sensor, for those excellent daylight photos. The ultra-wide is another 48MP lens, with a 128˚field of view, giving it great immersion for those landscape or group photos. There is an extra 48MP macro telephoto lens for those nice, close-up photos with X2 optical zoom. There is an additional TOF camera, which is rather unusual but a welcome gimmick, especially in 3D imaging. They really did go ham on the cameras. The video can support up to 8K videos at 24 fps, with HDR support & gyro-EIS stability assistance. It can also record 4k video at 60 fps and 1080p @ 240fps (peak) with gyro-EIS & HDR10+. The selfie camera is a generous 32MP wide sensor, capable of 1080p video at 30/60fps. The selfies are great and well-lit.
We can’t fail to mention the charging speeds in Xiaomi 12S Ultra. At an impressive 67W fast charging, the phone can get to 100% in about 41 mins. In addition, it gets 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging! It seems like Xiaomi really went ham on the charging speeds, which makes it impressive by all standards. That is in addition to the fact that it also comes with a Li-Po 4860mAh non-removable battery. Even with the high refresh rate screen, this should be more than enough. It supports NFC for contactless payments and has an IR blaster. The device is very much a serious contender in the flagship sector. It comes in Black and Green.
Similarly, priced phones would include the Oppo Find X5, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Google Pixel 6 Pro, and Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max. the main talking points would be the battery, being a 5G device, and the cameras. With the high refresh rate 120Hz AMOLED screen, it offers an experience similar to any midrange gadget at this price point.
Even for the price, it’s a great device. An improved 5G flagship chipset, huge immersive 120Hz AMOLED screen, and impressive camera systems. The cameras can even record up to 8K which is not exactly a common feature.
