I recently got a new 12 Pro as I hoped Xiaomi fixed the screen and proximity issues from 11T Pro. The 11T Pro is a great phone, the issues I had was a lazy proximity screen sensor which just didn't operate as smooth as an iPhone or Galaxy. No other flaws. So I decided to go with a 12 Pro looking for that screen improvement and a better proximity sensor.

The 12 Pro is everything 11T Pro is, except it does have a better screen more pixels,better colours, resolution and fingerprint recognition that instantly wakes the screen as soon as you touch it!

But still I can get over it that the difference in these two phones is minimal. Genuinely 11T Pro is a monster phone with great components and even better price. If I knew what I was getting, I probably would have stuck with 11T Pro as, 12 Pro is certainly not worth buying of you are coming from 11Tp.

So far from my own tests and checks, 11T Pro tops 12 Pro in every aspect, speed, opening of apps, images and videos rendering which I find a bit disappointed that older phone performs better them a new flagship.

For your info I attached a few screenshot from Antutu Benchmark and Geekbench tests.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
So you got what you wanted?
The chipsets are nearing their thermal limits; faster processors, 5G and variable refresh rate displays use more mAh and generate more heat as a byproduct. The area to dissipate this thermal load is largely fixed by the dimensions of the device means hotter running devices. Not a pretty picture when you consider the implications.

Worse accurate color calibration of variable refresh rate displays is imperfect, there are simple too many variables. If color calibration is off, the gamma correction gets skewed even more.

Xiaomi probably had room for improvement with their displays. Samsung's display performance in terms of color rendering accuracy zenithed with the Note 10+.
At least you got a better display.
Samsung's S22U can't offer me that or SOT that's better even with a larger 700 mAh battery. It is a buttery smooth better hand warmer though🤣
Sometimes hardware upgrades aren't a good option...
 
How's your battery on 12 pro? I find mine really poor
It depends on the usage and I'm using a Xiaomi EU rom.

blackhawk

explained the why and how very well.

Xiaomi Eu rom,same apps same usage.

Poco f2 pro Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 4700mHa +/- 38 hours/ AOSP +/- 48 hours
11 T pro Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5000 mHa +/- 35 hours
12 pro Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 4600 mHa +/- 30 hours

Sony Xperia J(st26) Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 1750 mHa +/- 15 days :ROFLMAO:

Thanks for that.
I'm also using latest Xiaomi. EU ROM on my 12.
11T pro is still on the global ROM
I find the 12 is really heavy on the battery for pretty much very same task and style of usage in comparison to 11T. The battery gets to 25% by mid day while this never occurred with 11T. ( That would be at least around 50%)

According to battery app what seems to drain the batteries on the 12 is the screen! Although I don't have display on,60hz only, etc .

it is possible that this will be fixed with the optimization updates of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 .
Also the battery saver setting set to "close apps after 10 minutes works randomly".
I use a 30w charger.

There are reports here that the latest beta release from Samsung greatly improved the S22U's performance. Global power management tends to cause erratic behaviors of most devices especially bluetooth apps.
