When it comes to playing games on the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G, the experience was smooth and lag-free.

Smooth and immersive gaming experiences can be expected on the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G thanks to its powerful CPU and GPU and efficient power management.

Camera Performance
Its triple camera system, comprises a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel wide camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 16-megapixel front camera.

It offers impressive capabilities in capturing both photos and videos. Having personally experienced using the device, I can say that it has a very capable camera system that can capture great images and videos.

The Sony IMX766 50-megapixel camera delivers exceptional image quality with sharpness and detail. It captures photos with vibrant colors, great details, and good exposure in a wide range of lighting conditions.

It has OIS for steady and stable shots, whether shooting landscapes, portraits, or everyday scenes. It also has Optic fusion with AI, which further improves the efficiency of light use.

For video recording it supports up to 4K at 30fps and for slow motion it supports 1080p at 120fps | 720p at 120/240/960fps.

While an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera offers a wide field of view, which is ideal for capturing landscapes, architecture, or large groups of people, it also accommodates more subjects within the frame. Photos have good detail and colors in wide-angle shots. While the resolution is marginally lower than the main camera, the image quality is still excellent for social media sharing.

I enjoy using the 2-megapixel macro camera to take close-up photos. It was enjoyable to capture often-overlooked details and textures. Despite its limited resolution, the macro camera produced remarkable results when shooting close-up subjects. From capturing flowers and insects to miniature everyday objects, the macro camera is ideal for creative and detailed shots that add a new dimension to the pictures I snap.

The camera does well in bright light but has difficulties capturing fine details and produces noticeable noise when used in low-light environments. The Night Mode feature helps to some extent, but it may not be able to compete with the results of low-light cameras in many situations.

The triple camera system offers impressive capabilities, and the Sony IMX766 wide camera produces excellent images. The front camera can shoot sharp and detailed selfies. While the ultra-wide and macro cameras' lower resolution and low-light capabilities should be improved. Overall, I love shooting photos and videos using the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G's camera, and it provides a great photography experience.

Battery Life
With its 5000mAh battery capacity, the Redmi Note 12 Pro delivers impressive battery life. I was able to use it for a full day of heavy usage, and it still had some power left in the evening before charging. Whether I was streaming videos, playing graphics-intensive games, or multitasking with various apps, the battery performed admirably.

The 67W turbo charging provides fast charging of the battery. In just a matter of minutes, it boosted the battery level significantly, providing me with hours of usage. This feature was particularly useful when I needed a quick power boost. The fast charging capabilities spared me the trouble of having to wait a long time for the battery to recharge.
