Because of their very diverse ecosystems, users iOS with android, and vice versa. But for those considering making the switch and interested in one of the devices, TecMundo has prepared a comparison highlighting the strengths of each model.

design and construction

Smartphones have similar dimensions. This iPhone 13with aluminum body and same type gorilla glass on both surfaces in addition to one layer ceramic glass on canvas, provides extra protection. Plus, it’s iPhone certified. IP68 Dust and submersion resistance up to 6 meters for 30 minutes.

In the case of the Xiaomi 12, the manufacturer has opted for Gorilla Glass 5 on the back of the device and Gorilla Glass Victus to the screen. In theory, the GG Victus can withstand drops of up to 1.80 m and pressures of up to 8 N; this is much stronger than the GG5 but does not seal against dust or water.


The first clear difference between the devices is on the screen. iPhone 13 uses a frame Super Retina XDR OLEDProprietary technology similar to Super AMOLED, 6.1″, 1170×2532 resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The Xiaomi 12 has an AMOLED panel with 68 billion colors, a 120 Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. The screen is slightly larger, with 6.28″, 1080×2400 resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio.

The iPhone 13 screen is smaller and has a notch in the front camera area

The main difference between the displays is the higher pixel density of Super Retina at 460 ppi compared to AMOLED’s 419 ppi. However, Xiaomi’s smartphone lacks the notorious notch, while the iPhone 13 has a very prominent cutout in the front camera area.


In addition to the 12MP front camera, the iPhone 13 has only two 12MP rear cameras, one main and one ultra-wide, capable of recording 4K up to 60fps and 240fps video in FullHD in super slow motion. The composition is practically the same. iPhone 11.

Comparison of iPhone 13 and Xiaomi 12 cameras

One of the most important features of the Xiaomi 12 is the camera set. The 50 MP main camera is accompanied by a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle and telephoto lens with a 5 MP and 50 mm focal length. Sony Xperia Pro-I.

processor and performance

iPhone 13, new A15 Bionicand 4GB of RAM (at 6GB iPhone 13 Pro Max). The relatively smaller memory than its competitors is usually not an issue, largely due to iOS optimizations in addition to storage. up to 512GB.

Xiaomi 12 was one of the first models to receive the award. Snapdragon 8 Gen 1It brings 8GB or 12GB RAM options and ultra-fast UFS 3.1 internal storage 128GB or 256GB. However, the result of synthetic tests is quite divisive.


Comparing the main benchmarks, the A15 reached 4,673 points. GeekBenchIt’s well ahead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s 3,856. antutuXiaomi scored 1,000,603 against the iPhone 13’s 810,350.

Benchmark comparison has divisive results

This is because of the way these tests work. While both are synthetic tests, GeekBench analyzes the performance of the entire package. AnTuTu tests each component separately and the final score is the sum of the individual scores. Therefore, the result is natural, as the Android smartphone has at least twice the memory.

System and interface

Although there are obvious differences between the two models, the main factor affecting the selection is the operating systems.

For owners of other Apple devices, it is natural to prefer the iPhone, especially because of the integration with the company’s accessories. Due to its closely controlled ecosystem, everything the iPhone sets to run is very good, albeit with less impressive specs. This iOS 15 It still brings new features compared to its predecessor, but most of it is quality of life.

Integration between Apple devices is simple and intuitive

Xiaomi 12 comes with Android 12 and MIUI 13 interface. Android devices bring embedded apps from manufacturers, but Xiaomi gives a lot of freedom to the user to uninstall most of them, as long as it is not security or system programs. While not a “pure Android”, the experience is less frustrating than brands that put programs that are impossible to uninstall and constantly drain device resources.


Both models are in the €800 range in Europe, but the iPhone 13 is now officially available in Brazil starting at R$7,599. However, the Xiaomi 12 is only available by import so far and ranges from R$5,000 to R$7,000 depending on the market.
