I want to Exchange my Redmi Note 5 Pro for Redmi Note 12 Pro.

I am getting 7650 Rs off as it is giving additional 4000 rs Exchange offer on 1st day Sale.

So I will be getting the 6GB/128GB varient of Redmi Note 12 Pro around 17500.

I want my phone for Normal Usage, No Gaming, Decent Camera, YouTube, Facebook and surfing and budget is around 15-20k.

Should I wait for some other phone. If I should wait which upcoming phone will be good in this price range with better specifications Or is it good to buy Redmi Note 12 Pro 6/128 in 17500.

Kindly Help.

Overpriced IMO. Might want to wait 6 months to check for hardware issues if any. I bought Redmi Note 10 Pro well over a year after launch and yet couldn't escape software and/or hardware defects. Custom ROMs for it suffer from a variety of bugs which makes them unsuitable for use by someone who isn't particularly tech-savvy like my father and so it's my only Xiaomi device which hasn't been rid of MIUI within a short while of purchase. Haven't even updated the original MIUI version. I don't think RN12 series will suffer a similar fate but you never know.

I agree Redmi 10 pro is pathetic, lots of problems we too faced, not at all a good upgrade to their famous Note 9 pro.

I have lost trust in it.

Flipkart and Mobile Exchange are Deadly combination.

In most of the cases your exchange will be rejected / exchange price will be reduced at the time of delivery.

Be cautious.

You don't need a 20k phone for surfing the net lmao even a sub 10k phone like redmi 10 can do that with ease if you really need to spend more then Infinix Hot 20 5G looks like the best bang for buck phone I've ever seen.

It seems the Infinix Hot 20 5G only has a 4GB RAM variant available which is not at all sufficient for a  semi-decent browsing experience considering as early as 2 years back even 6GB had started feeling inadequate at times unless one uses some very light browsers like Soul or FF Focus instead of mainstream desktop grade browsers like Chrome, Kiwi (includes support for Chrome extensions to really turbo charge the browsing experience in mobiles but obviously RAM usage is further increased) , Vivaldi, FF etc. That too running stock Android. Also the Dimensity 810 is only a little bit faster than the SD732G which couldn't maintain a near constant 60fps while scrolling in several webpages hampering the smoothness. In particularly image-heavy websites like the homepage of Espncricinfo the GPU was close to overloaded and couldn't render the images fast enough. Some folks might notice this issue more than others...

4gb ram is more than enough for a decent usage you just have to tweak it like remove all bloat ,keep a check on permissions and usage permissions, use systemwide adblock ,not overloading storage etc doing this reduces the load by unimaginable amounts.

Not worth the price.
Ideal price should have been 19,999/-

From the Xiaomi stable Poco F4 is a far better choice. SD870 runs circles around most mid-range SoCs. Plus flagship Qualcomm SoCs invariably enjoy way, way better custom ROM development than 6xx/7xx SoCs nevermind MTK ones thereby ensuring updates long after the end of official support. In light of the hardware issues plaguing Poco/Redmi devices in the last few years I wouldn't have suggested it but for the 2 years warranty. Also unlike smaller Chinese brands Xiaomi usually stocks spares for several years, commonly upto 6 years in case of popular models. Price is a bit higher than your specified budget though. 

Nothing Phone 1 is a good choice as well. Stock Android is great even though a bit bland. SD778G is a pretty performant SoC. But I haven't kept track of whether the issues that had been reported soon after launch were resolved or not. Again a bit over budget.

If I have to increase the budget then there are many options available like Nothing Phone 1, Oneplus 2T, IQoo Neo 7 is think upcoming in Feb. 
but Now less options are available in 20k segment.
I too think that Redmi Note 12 Pro is overpriced. But I was considering it because my MI note 5 Pro will be exchanged for 7650. So for me actual price of Redmi Note 12 Pro comes to 20999 for 6/128 Gb Variant.
This is just marketing gimmick from MI by giving additional exchange of 4K. But I want to know whether 20999 is also overpriced?
or should I spend 10k more and go for Nothing Phone 1, Onplus or Iqoo Neo 7.

In budget of 30k, Iqoo neo 6 is the best device.

It has all the major things covered, good display, form factor, mind blowing camera (sometimes better than iphone13), speakers and day to day use.

I have nord 2, used iqoo neo 6 for couple of days of a relative and clearly one plus do not have the quality which iqoo have.

Have many iphone 13 in extended family and camera of those is just over hyped.

Wouldn't the lack of enough 5G bands on Neo 6 (it has only 4 5G bands) be a cause of concern, even in medium time frame?

I'd rather suggest Moro Edge 30, Realme 10 Pro+ or the Nothing Phone 1 in this range.

Cheers!

Personally, I don't prefer Redmi phones because of its poor software & hardware experience..

It might give top of the line specifications, but not a quality user experience that one might expect.

The device starts misbehaving just a year after buying it.

For Big Billion Day I have to wait for atleast 10 months. But I need a Phone now as Redmi Note 5 Pro of mine is not performing well. 

So I have make up my mind to buy either of these.

Nothing Phone 1, Iqoo Neo 9 SE, Google Pixal 6a, Iqoo Neo 7.

I want 256 GB Version. Snapdragon Processor is my priority. So which phone will last long, Good Camera,  Value for money and will get better software updates without bloatwares.

Nothing Phone 1 is the least repairable device launched in 2022. Amongst major brands.

I am confused between Google Pixel 6a, Nothing Phone 1 and IQOO 9 SE.

I have seen many reviews and researched a lot about these phones in which I found 


Google Pixel 6a has best Camera, Stock Android, Clean UI although problem with the phone is screen refresh Rate is 60Hz and Service centres are not available and not providing charger and charging is just 18W. ALSO 256 GB model is not available.


Nothing Phone 1 seems be all round phone but Camera is ok ok and at night it is not good, Glyph lights looks good, stylish phone, Clean UI, Processor is SD 778 which is good but not flagship. But I don’t play games so that is ok for me. It does not contain charger in the box as well. But considering it is a new brand, And parts will be available in smaller cities or not post warranty. Although it has 8/256 Version available around 26500 in sale. I have heard it is getting better day be day with updates. 

IQOO 9 SE is a flagship phone with good Screen and Flagship Processor SD 888, Fastest of all. It is also all-rounder phone with 120 Hz Refresh Rate, good Camera. But IQOO is also new for me. It has in box Charger as well. 12/256 Gb version also available but for this is also new company. It is costing around 31000. So I have to spend 6000 rupees extra than Nothing Phone 1.


I was also considering Poco F4, but it has just 4 5G bands so skipped it.

I have narrowed down to Nothing Phone 1 as it looks good and all round phone with 8/256 GB. Although charger is not there but I will use my Redmi charger.
What’s your thought about it. Should I go ahead with Nothing Phone 1. I am looking to exchange my Redmi Note 5 Pro as well which will be exchanged for 3300.

Poco X5 Pro with SD778G is rumoured to launch in April/May. It shouldn't cost more than the Poco F4 but considering the ridiculous pricing of the Redmi Note 12 Pro all bets are off. Poco devices are pretty much a rebrand of Redmi devices.

Thanks Bro for all your suggestions till now.

I considered Poco F4 but was not getting 256 GB model.

Also Considered Samsung 21 Fe but in that also I was getting only 128GB model. But my requirement was 256 GB.

So considering all these.

Finally I Ordered Nothing Phone 1 8/256 Today on No Cost EMI with 2000₹ discount.
