iPhone 14 Pro vs Xiaomi 12 Pro: Specs Comparison

Apple just released the iPhone 14 Pro: the first iPhone ever with Dynamic Island. But this aesthetic new feature is not the only amazing improvement of this device if we compare it to the previous generation. After the release, a huge amount of people, even among Gizmochina readers, are wondering whether or not this device is the best smartphone out there alongside the Pro Max variant. Well, in order to answer this question, we are currently comparing it to the other best phones from the other brands. Now, it is the turn of Xiaomi. We already published an article about the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, but now we chose another Xiaomi flagship because it is the latest one launched by the brand in the global market. So, here you can find a comparison between the main specifications of the iPhone 14 Pro and the Xiaomi 12 Pro.

There is definitely no challenge: if you need the most elegant design and the best build quality, then you should go for the iPhone 14 Pro. It is built with premium materials such as Ceramic Shield for the rear side and stainless steel for the frame, so it is very solid. It is more compact than its rival and it is waterproof with the IP68 certification allowing you to put it underwater up to 6 meters deep for a max time of 30 minutes. It is thinner than the Xiaomi and it is very beautiful with its narrow bezels sporting the same thickness on all the sides. Unlike the iPhone 14 Pro, the Xiaomi 12 Pro is not waterproof and it is built with a glass back and a classic aluminum frame. It is not an ugly phone and it still comes with the good build quality, but there is no way it can compete with the Apple flagship.


On the display side, it is a very hard fight. In terms of specifications, these two devices are very close. But it looks like the image quality provided by the iPhone 14 Pro is hard to match. This handset comes with a Super Retina XDR OLED panel sporting a diagonal of 6.1 inches, a Full HD+ resolution of 1179 x 2556 pixels, a 120 Hz refresh rate, the HDR10 certification, Dolby Vision support, and a peak brightness of up to 2,000 nits. The Xiaomi 12 Pro is equipped with an AMOLED display able to show up to one billion colors with a diagonal of 6.73 inches, a Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, a 120 Hz refresh rate, the HDR10+ certification, and Dolby Vision support, as well as a 1,500 nit peak brightness. The methods of authentication are different: with the iPhone, you get 3D facial recognition, while Xiaomi has an in-display fingerprint reader. Thanks to the LTPO technology, the displays of these phones come with an adaptive refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz and they support Always-On Display with a very low refresh rate.

Specs & Software

The hardware departments of these two phones are at the same level, but the iPhone 14 Pro is able to provide higher performance because the iOS operating system has better optimization compared to Android. The iPhone 14 Pro is fueled by the Apple A16 Bionic chipset built with a 4 nm production process and sporting an hexa-core architecture composed of two Everest performance cores running at a max frequency of 3.46 GHz, four Sawtooth energy cores running at 2.02 GHz, and a 5-core proprietary GPU. Then we have 6 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of native storage. With the Xiaomi 12 Pro, you get a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform built with the same 4 nm production process, but with an octa-core architecture composed of a Cortex X1 CPU running at a max frequency of 3 GHz, three Cortex A710 CPUs running at 2.5 GHz, four Cortex A510 CPUs running at 1.8 GHz, and an Adreno 730 GPU. The chipset is paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage.


Now, the cameras. The iPhone 14 Pro should be able to provide better photo quality thanks to its amazing software optimizations and sensors. It is the first Apple phone with a 48 MP main camera, paired with a 12 MP ultrawide lens and a 12 MP telephoto sensor. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 12 Pro remains great with its triple camera including three 50 MP sensors. We believe the iPhone will behave better, but Xiaomi remains one of the best camera phones out there.


The battery of the Xiaomi 12 Pro is much bigger, but the improvements in terms of battery life are not very evident if we compare it to the iPhone 12 Pro. What really changes are the charging speeds, thanks to its amazing 120W fast charging technology.


The iPhone 14 Pro starts from $1300 or €1300, while you need less than €1000 or $1000 to purchase the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Which one would you pick?
