2022 Winners and losers: Xiaomi

Xiaomi is one of the big three players in the smartphone market, and while it had a tumultuous 2022 financially, it also saw some great products from the company. It also saw it invest a significant amount of money in its EV business, which it hopes will pay off in the future.

In the world of smartphones, we saw more than a dozen Redmi Note 11 phones, the very competitive Poco phones and some interesting beasts from the Xiaomi 12 series. Here’s a list of Xiaomi’s flagships from last year as we saw them – the 13 series aren’t included as they’re still too new to judge.

Winner: Xiaomi 12S Ultra

This smartphone instantly stole our hearts as soon as it arrived for review. The main camera has a 1”-type 50MP sensor with two additional shooters that are among the most capable in their fields. It’s clearly a camera phone, even if some shooters on the back don’t live up to the high standards set by the primary cam.

The 12S Ultra also has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a great 1440p screen, and an IP68 rating, which isn’t a big step for Xiaomi. A beautiful package no matter how you look at it.

Loser: Xiaomi 12S Ultra

Except if you want to buy one, you can’t. Xiaomi limited the 12S Ultra to China, meaning international markets haven’t seen an Ultraphone in eighteen months.

We’re very sorry that this phone isn’t surviving the local market, and whatever issues prevented Xiaomi from releasing it globally is too expensive.

Winner: Xiaomi 12T Pro

In a year without an Ultraphone, the next best thing from Xiaomi is the Pro variants. While the Xiaomi 12 Pro was the company’s international flagship, we liked the more affordable Xiaomi 12T Pro, which was announced in the second half of 2022. It has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and a 200MP camera – features that no other Xiaomi devices have. international scene.

What we also loved about the 12T Pro is the incredible display, solid battery with 120W fast charging and excellent audio output. There is also a limited edition by Daniel Arsham, which makes the phone a work of art. It is clearly one of Xiaomi’s successful products.

Losers: 18-strong Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 series

The Redmi Note family is the best-selling family in Xiaomi’s portfolio. They are capable midrangers, placed in multiple price slots thanks to a large number of different versions. However, Xiaomi apparently went too far this time and confused journalists and fans alike.

2022 Winners and Losers: Xiaomi

Major markets like India and China got the same phone names but with different specs. Some of them were 5G, and some were not. It will take a lot of research to find out which phones are actually available to you and how they are rated. More so if you want to make sure you’re getting the best value for your money, which is usually key for mid-rangers.

At the end of the day, the company saw 60 million Redmi Note units shipped globally, reaching the impressive 300 million milestone, which isn’t a disaster, but it also acknowledged that it has a long way to go with its line in the future. You need to streamline.

Winner: Poco F4 GT

The Poco F4 GT is a flagship chipset phone that ticks all the right boxes for a large group of smartphone gamers. It has pop-up triggers, RGB LEDs on the back that actually work rather than being there for aesthetics, and a 120Hz display fit for any decent gaming device.

It also has a polished software and a very aggressive price, which makes it an obvious choice for many people.

Loser: Xiaomi Mix Fold 2

Xiaomi’s second-generation foldable, the Mixfold 2, follows in the footsteps of the first. Which means it never made it to international markets. Worse, the phone felt unpolished for a second-generation product.

The Mixfold 2 was with us for review, and we loved its slimness. However, the fact that custom MIUI provides limited multitasking capabilities takes away a lot of the utility of the large internal screen.

Then there’s the overheating graphics unit, unimpressive camera performance and relatively high price compared to other foldables. We’re certainly hoping that the third time will be lucky and that the Mixfold 3 will feel more like a premium device and less like a hastily assembled prototype.
