Recommendation

Xiaomi considered affordability and value and presented Xiaomi’s cut-price late-2020 flagship to us. The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is an excellent budget flagship, with the same main camera, software, and processing power as the Xiaomi Mi 10S, but with a lower-quality design and display to balance the books and keep the price low.

However, this phone has a few great features that the Mi 10 series lacks: a very useful side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 144Hz display, and a massive camera bump.

If you want a phone that is amazing for gaming but on a budget and do not want to spend a lot of money, the Black Shark 3 is definitely for you. The Black Shark 3 is the third-generation phone from Xiaomi’s gaming subsidiary.

The Black Shark 3 has a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 5G connectivity, a large battery, and a 90Hz refresh rate screen, but it’s not as expensive as some of its similarly-specified competitors. The phone also has a fantastic camera, which is surprising.

Sure, this phone is not for everyone, especially if you are not a big mobile gamer, we obviously would not recommend it, but for a gamer who likes to play on the go, it’s a must-have, especially if you are a fan, and play PUBG Mobile, Fornite, or Call of Duty: Mobile.

Xiaomi 11T Pro

  • Release date: September 2020
  • Weight: 204g

  • Front camera: 16MP

Reasons Why You Should Buy Xiaomi 11T Pro

  • It charges lightning fast.
  • It has a fluid and responsive feel to it.

Why You Might Want To Avoid Xiaomi 11T Pro

  • It is prone to overheating.
  • It has a fingerprint magnet on the back.

Recommendations

The Xiaomi 11T Pro is a mid-range version of the Mi 11 and the year-on successor to the Mi 10T Pro, though it’s worth noting that it’s the company’s first phone to drop out of the ‘Mi’ branding.

This is a great mid-range handset with a powerful chipset, a good-looking screen, a useful camera array, and an intuitive fingerprint scanner, this is a great mid-range handset. If you liked the Mi 11’s design, you’d find many of the same features here, such as the 5MP tele macro lens and a variety of camera modes.

However, the phone had a few flaws. While quick to use, its fingerprint sensor was a little too high for some people to reach. The main issue we had was that it became extremely hot very quickly and reduced processing power.

Overall, this is a fantastic phone, and if you’re looking for a new mid-range phone, it’s well worth considering.

Xiaomi 12

Xiaomi 12 is among the list of Xiaomi devices to be launched later this year. The mobile devices are anticipated to have very amazing features including, but not limited to:

  • Weight: 180
  • Dimensions: 152.7 x 69.9 x 8.2 mm
  • OS: Android 12
  • Screen size: 6.28inch
  • Resolution: 1080 x 2400
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB RAM
  • Storage: 128GB/256GB
  • Battery: 4500mAh battery
  • Rear camera: 50Mp + 13Mp + 5Mp
  • Front camera: 32Mp

Recommendations

The Xiaomi 12 is now official: it’s the company’s newest super-powerful phone, with some impressive specs and features, and we can expect siblings and spin-offs to arrive throughout 2022. It was unveiled at a Chinese event in late December, alongside a Pro sibling, and is expected to be one of the best phones of 2022, competing against the Samsung Galaxy S22, OnePlus 10, and iPhone 14, which we hope it will defeat.

We’re expecting a global launch in February or March, and we strongly advise you to get the best of Xiaomi’s phones when Xiaomi 12 hits the market.
