It’s been a long time coming, but Xiaomi decided this week it was finally ready to bring the Xiaomi 12 series to the rest of the world – and not to be out-done, Samsung also took the opportunity to unveil its updated mid-range line-up.
The Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and 12X are all making it to the global market, with prices starting from $649. Chris has reviewed the Xiaomi 12, while Dom tested the 12 Pro, so the pair of them are ready to share their thoughts on Xiaomi’s latest and decide if they can compete in an already competitive 2022 market.
Meanwhile Samsung unveiled new A-series phones, and Dom had the opportunity to go hands-on with the new A33 and A53. Mid-range Samsung handsets aren’t always exciting, but with updated designs, IP67 ratings, and up to four years of Android updates, these could be the phones to beat Apple’s iPhone SE at its own game.
And finally, better late than never, we’re ready with our full review of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Lewis has spent the week putting Samsung’s biggest and baddest phone through its paces and is ready to spill all.
