Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone brand that has been making waves in the global market with its affordable and feature-packed devices. One of its latest offerings is the Redmi 12C, an entry-level smartphone that was launched in Kenya on March 13th, 2023.
The Redmi 12C aims to provide a smooth and enjoyable user experience for budget-conscious consumers who want a reliable and stylish device. In this review, we will look at some of the key features and specifications of the Redmi 12C and see how it fares against its competitors.
Design and Display
The Redmi 12C has a sleek and modern design that comes in three attractive colors: graphic gray, ocean blue, or mint green.
The back panel has a matte finish that feels nice to touch and resists fingerprints. The phone has a plastic frame that is sturdy and durable. The phone measures 164 x 76 x 8.9 mm and weighs 196 grams, making it comfortable to hold and use with one hand.
The front of the phone features a large 6.71-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:6:9.
The display has thin bezels on the sides and a waterdrop notch at the top that houses the selfie camera.
The display is bright and colorful, with good viewing angles and contrast. The display supports adaptive brightness that adjusts to different lighting conditions automatically.
Performance and Battery
The Redmi 12C is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 processor, an octa-core chipset that clocks up to 2 GHz.
The processor is paired with either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM and either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512 GB via a microSD card slot. The phone runs on Android 11 with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI skin on top.
The performance of the Redmi 12C is impressive for its price range, as it can handle multitasking, gaming, or everyday use smoothly and without lagging or overheating.
The phone supports dual SIM cards (nano + nano) and offers various connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, USB Type-C port, IR blaster, headphone jack, etc.
The battery capacity of the Redmi 12C is another highlight of this device as it boasts a massive
5000 mAh battery that can last for more than a day on moderate usage or up to two days on light usage.
The phone also supports fast charging up to 18 W via the included charger.
The camera department of the Redmi 12C consists of two cameras on the back and one camera on the front.
The rear camera setup includes a primary 50 MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and LED flash, and a secondary 2 MP depth sensor for portrait mode.
The rear camera can record videos up to 1080p at 30 fps.
The front camera is a 5 MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture that can take selfies or make video calls.
The camera quality of the Redmi 12C is decent for its price point, as it can capture clear and detailed photos in good lighting conditions, with accurate colors and contrast.
However, the camera struggles in low-light situations, as it produces noisy and grainy images with poor dynamic range.
The portrait mode works well, but sometimes blurs out some edges or details.
The selfie camera is also satisfactory, but not very flattering or sharp.
The Xiaomi Redmi 12C is an excellent choice for an affordable smartphone with great performance, battery life, and design.
It has some drawbacks, such as mediocre cameras, low-resolution display, and lack of a fingerprint scanner, but these are minor issues compared to its strengths.
For only KES 14000 (3 GB + 32 GB) or KES 16000 (4 GB + 64 GB), the Redmi 12C delivers more than what you pay for.
