Reviews for the Xiaomi 12S

Xiaomi 12S Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The Xiaomi 12S smartphone is a decent flagship phone that fulfills everything you expect from a flagship device. Moreover, the phone is currently only feasible in China, so if you want to purchase this handset you have to wait till the company release the global version. But if we have to recommend this phone, then considering Xiaomi’s brand reputation, it is not that bad either. Despite this, we would like to highlight that there are several other options present in the market. You can check out the Asus ROG Phone 6 which has immersive gaming-centric features and subtle performance to present as a decent alternative. On the other hand, the Realme GT 2 Pro still can be considered an all-rounder deal. Now, it’s time for you to decide which one you want.
