After the separation of Xiaomi and Redmi, xiaomi’s cost-effectiveness banner was handed over to Redmi.At the same time, xiaomi’s brand image has become blurred, with little to be remembered for other than its annual upmarket drama.The specific product seems to be the same, as a high-end flagship Mi 12 Pro although full of configurations, but there is no exclusive selling point worth remembering;In addition to the starting price of 2999 yuan, the Redmi K50 Pro features a Breguet 9000 processor, a 2K high-brush AMOLED screen, and 120W quick charging.Faced with this kind of problem, many netizens also jokingly “Millet orthodox in Red rice”, so is this really the case?Today I will carry on a comprehensive comparison to these two products, interested friends and I go to see it together.01 Appearance: The money is not in place, you can see at a glance for mobile phones, as a product that is inseparable with us every day, whether the appearance is good or not still affects our use mood.This is also the easiest place to save money on a cost-effective model.For a detailed look at the two devices, you can check out ZOL’s full review. Here’s a look at the differences in detail.The Mi 12 Pro is 8.16mm thick (glass) and weighs 205G;The Redmi K50 Pro is 8.48mm thick and weighs 201g.On paper, the difference shouldn’t be huge, but in your hand you can feel the difference in the feel.Because the Redmi K50 Pro doesn’t have a curved screen and the back cover has a relatively small arc, it feels heavier in the hand.In addition, the combination of metal frame +AG frosted glass also makes the Mi 12 Pro feel very round and smooth. In comparison, the plastic frame of the Redmi K50 Pro is relatively cheap.The plastic bracket between the screen and the middle frame makes the transition seem not smooth enough, and the sense of fragmentation is more obvious.In addition to these two obvious differences, the Redmi K50 Pro uses the combination of side fingerprint + straight screen, while the Mi 12 Pro is under the screen fingerprint + hypercurved screen,The former is good for gaming but not as “advanced”, while the latter is more aesthetically pleasing but not as good as the side fingerprint in some scenarios.Redmi K50 Pro using side fingerprint in millet 12 Pro of screen under the fingerprint design and stereo pairs of speakers, infrared module, these equipment, two phones did not fall, the former was at the movies, play games and other entertainment scene can provide good experience, which in the case of need some temporary remote control household appliances is very practical.In general, xiaomi 12 Pro as a flagship although slightly dull, but compared with Redmi K50 Pro, you can obviously feel the quality of advanced process support.As for who looks better, it depends on personal preference.02 performance: flagship chip, immortal fight for these two mobile phones, I believe that many friends are most concerned about the performance gap between them.After all, the Breguet 9000 has given everyone high expectations before the release of production models.So let me put the Snapdragon 8 to the test and see how it compares with the Breguet 9000.Before the test began, we left both phones standing for half an hour and turned on the performance mode to ensure that the battery was above 80%.The first is the traditional running test, mi 12 Pro Antutu score 956,782 points;Geekbench had a single-core score of 1,196 and a multicore score of 3,602.Redmi K50 Pro is 957,539 points;Geekbench had a single-core score of 1301 and a multicore score of 4494.In running tests, the Redmi K50 Pro has a certain degree of advantage over the Mi 12 Pro.In the game test, we still choose the original God, which is under great pressure of mobile phone performance, as a test project, and test it for half an hour under the setting of extremely high picture quality +60 frames. The results are as follows:On average, the Mi 12 Pro is 48.8 frames, while the Redmi K50 Pro is 54.8 frames.Specifically, Redmi K50 Pro can basically maintain around 60 frames in the first 18 minutes (about 10 minutes of lag is caused by transmission), with slight lag in the middle, but not obvious, which basically does not affect the game.After 18 minutes, the framerate starts to fluctuate, dropping briefly to around 40, then back to 60 after a minute, and the framerate drops noticeably.The Mi 12 Pro, on the other hand, is less stable in frame rate, with more stuttering times.Finally, let’s look at the heat. After 30 minutes of testing, the mi 12 Pro has an average body temperature of 40.4 degrees Celsius, while the Redmi K50 Pro has an average body temperature of 42.9 degrees Celsius.Redmi K50 Pro in general, in order to control the heat situation, the performance of the Mi 12 Pro is slightly conservative;The Redmi K50 Pro’s more “open” performance is accompanied by more pronounced heating.This shows that vendor tuning is becoming more and more important to performance.As for the video part, you should have guessed the results before the test started.In recent years, the main selling point of flagship models is better video experience, while cost-effective models do not have much room to play in this respect due to cost constraints.This is also verified in configuration.The mi 12 Pro uses the full 50 megapixel configuration of IMX707 main camera + ultra wide Angle + 2x telephoto, while the Redmi K50 Pro uses a 100 megapixel Samsung HM2 main camera +8 megapixel ultra wide Angle lens +2 megapixel macro lens.In the actual take proofs, the gap between the two is also very obvious.First of all, in front of IMX707, HM2 high pixel advantage is not obvious.Colorwise, the Redmi K50 Pro is noticeably redder, while the Mi 12 Pro is more realistic.In terms of detail, the Redmi K50 Pro lost a lot of detail in the image, while the Mi 12 Pro didn’t have a problem with that.If the main camera is not far off, the super wide-angle lens is the one-sided crushing of the Mi 12 Pro.The low pixel count and smears make the Redmi K50 Pro’s trees almost a paste, compared with the mi 12 Pro’s clear texture of tree branches.In terms of color, the Redmi K50 Pro inherits the problem of red color on the main camera, while the Mi 12 Pro’s color is a little bland.Ultra-wide-angle proofs (mi 12 Pro, left, Redmi K50 Pro, right) and thanks to its independent telephoto lens, the Mi 12 Pro also offers higher resolution in 2x mode.Redmi K50 Pro can only use the main camera cutting, the effect is relatively poor.For night shots, the Mi 12 Pro has more HDR intensity, such as tree branches in the background, which are faintly visible in the Mi 12 Pro’s proofs, but almost blend in with the black background in the Redmi K50 Pro.The lack of paint gives the Mi 12 Pro a purer photo look while retaining more dark details.Night scene proofs (left for Mi 12 Pro, right for Redmi K50 Pro) as one of the main direction of flagship models in recent years, image is also one of the functions that can obviously reflect the positioning difference between Mi 12 Pro and Redmi K50 Pro.Compared to the Redmi K50 Pro’s thousandyuan camera performance, the Mi 12 Pro’s proofs reach the average level of mainstream flagship phones.Finally, let’s take a look at the battery life and fast charging performance of the two phones.In terms of specs, both phones are equipped with Xiaomi’s 120W fast charging technology. In terms of battery capacity, the Mi 12 Pro has 4600mAh and the Redmi K50 Pro has 5000mAh.First of all, let’s take a look at the performance of fast charging. After both models were powered down to automatic shutdown, we used the original charger to charge them and timed the phones after they could be turned on. During the test, the quick charging acceleration function of the two phones was enabled.As you can see, the Redmi K50 Pro was still the first to charge the larger battery by two minutes, which is somewhat surprising.The body temperature of the Redmi K50 Pro is also slightly lower than that of the Mi 12 Pro.In battery tests, the Mi 12 Pro also performed worse than the Redmi K50 Pro due to its smaller battery.We tested both phones using the ZOL 5-hour heavy battery test model. After 5 hours, the Mi 12 Pro had 46% battery remaining and the Redmi K50 Pro had 53%.Overall, the Redmi 12 Pro’s battery life is mediocre, while the Redmi K50 Pro’s ability to deliver a larger battery with little change in body weight and thickness is no doubt the first tier of performance in the current market.05 wrote in the last seemingly “Guan Gong vs Qin Qiong” comparison here, we can easily draw a conclusion, Redmi K50 Pro is only a mid-range phone with comparable performance as a flagship, while mi 12 Pro’s balanced performance is more in line with what a “true flagship” should look like.But such an obvious conclusion seems like nonsense, and what we should really be talking about is the different demographics these two phones are aimed at.Flagship phones have long been constrained by the idea that they can do everything.Since this is a flagship phone, it should have a slim look, powerful performance, excellent shooting ability, and long battery life……But in fact for many users, there is no need for such a “comprehensive and powerful” product.The Redmi K50 Pro is exactly a response to this problem. Through the compromise of image and appearance, it provides the powerful performance and battery life of the flagship at the price of 2999 yuan.Users whose primary need is performance are finally not forced to pay more for features they don’t need.It is hoped that more enterprises can follow this trend and meet the different personalized needs of users.
