Redmi Note 12 Pro+ vs Realme 10 Pro+ blind camera test: battle of the mid-range rivals

The Realme 10 Pro+ (review) and the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ (review) are the most loaded smartphone offerings from these brands as part of their respective signature lineups.

In the following comparison, you’ll see images shot using the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ and the Realme 10 Pro+, but you won’t know which shot is which. You can vote for the photos you think are the best across different scenes, and after a few weeks, the winners will be declared. Read on, and cast your vote!

Daylight HDR shot

Above are two images taken by the Redmi and Realme phones that show a replica of a torpedo sitting inside a park. It is important to note that neither device had any kind of AI-based scene optimisation turned on. Which photo do you think is the best? Vote below.

Ultra-wide shot

The ultra-wide shots attached above show reasonably good ultra-wide capabilities but consider the difference in colours and detailing with both shots before voting. Apart from that the sun is also shining on the top-left which gives a different tone to the sky in both snaps.

UHD shot

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ can shoot 200MP photos with its primary sensor while that number is 108MP for the Realme 10 Pro+. However, how much difference do those extra megapixels make? Attached above are two full-resolution images from both phones at a 100X crop. Can you tell which is better? Vote now.

Portrait shot

Portrait images impart a touch of artistic grandeur to shots with a DSLR-like bokeh in the background. Things to notice are the edge detection on the subject and the amount of blur along with the colours being outputted. Take your pick and vote.

Selfie shot

Selfies churned out from both devices look quite optimal for instant sharing on social media platforms. However, you must also notice things like the exposure behind the subject’s face and how detailed is the background. Finally, facial oversharpening and skin tones should also be a factor in your voting process.

Macro shot

There are dedicated macro shooters present on both phones. While the resolution on these shots is not the highest, the detail level seen in the pollen grains and the petals is rather good. You can consider the colour output from either snap along with how good the focus is while casting your vote.

Low light

The ability of smartphones to snap detailed shots in low light has seen a constant wave of improvement over the years. The above photo is a mix of coloured lights under a dimly-lit flyover at night. Which photo gets in the best details, shadows and colours? Vote your choice.

Night mode

The dedicated Night mode can help with additional details and exposure metering in areas with less-than-ideal lighting. Xiaomi and Realme have long employed pretty great AI-based nighttime enhancements and it is visible in the shots shown above. Look for the detailing across the building and the trees. Vote which snap is to your liking.
