In today’s highly competitive smartphone market, OnePlus 12 and Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro are undoubtedly two high-profile flagship models. As annual masterpieces of their respective brands, they are equipped with advanced technology and excellent performance to meet consumers’ expectations for high-end mobile phones. However, which one can stand out better and provide higher cost performance and better user experience? Today, we will conduct an in-depth comparison of the key features of OnePlus 12 and Xiaomi Mi 14Pro, and conduct a comprehensive comparison from many aspects, aiming to help you make a more informed choice between the two.
1 Performance: Same hardware ≠ same performance
For flagship phones, the importance of performance cannot be overstated. As the first products equipped with the third-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform, Xiaomi 14 Pro and OnePlus 12 have no difference in hardware configuration. They are both a combination of the third-generation Snapdragon 8 with LPDDR5X memory and UFS4.0 flash memory. . It is worth mentioning that this time OnePlus 12 provides the entire series with starting configurations of 12GB, as well as luxury combinations of up to 24GB+1TB, making it the only 24GB+1TB third-generation Snapdragon 8 machine on the market. type.
As usual, we still test the two mobile phones in two categories: running scores and games. The first is the running score. You can see that OnePlus 12 was tested using the AnTuTu V10 model at room temperature and got a score of 2148740. The single-core and multi-core scores of GeekBench6.2 were 2283 and 6890 respectively. The 3DMarkWild Life EXTREME score was as high as 5180.
Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro was tested using the AnTuTu V10 model at room temperature and achieved a score of 1985345. The single-core and multi-core scores of GeekBench6.2 were 2124 and 6788 respectively, and the 3DMark Wild Life EXTREME score was 4627.
In the game test session, we directly chose the currently heavily loaded “Honkai Impact: Star Rail” and ran the map continuously for 15 minutes in the high-load Star Ocean scene. The test environment was a room temperature of 24°C. In the settings, the game image quality and frame rate were fully maximized, and PerfDog was used to record the frame rate performance of the entire game. The results are as follows:
It can be seen that both mobile phones can almost run at full frame throughout the entire process. The average frame rate of Xiaomi 14 Pro is 59fps, and there was a slight lag during the test; the average frame rate of OnePlus 12 is 61.3fps, and the entire process is 61.3fps. Almost no lag.
2 Image: Both are flagship models, which style do you like?
As a new battlefield for flagship phones, the images are naturally worthy of comparison. After all, no one wants to experience beautiful moments without suitable equipment around them to record them. As both flagships backed by major imaging companies, Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro and OnePlus 12 have no shortcomings in hardware parameters.
In terms of configuration, the OnePlus 12’s 50-megapixel main camera uses the LYT-808 flagship sensor developed in conjunction with Sony. It has an area of 1/1.4 inches, a large f/1.6 aperture, supports 2.24μm pixels four-in-one, and OIS optical image stabilization. . In order to reduce the glare problem caused by night shooting, the lens is also equipped with ALC sub-wavelength structure coating and spin-coating IS filter to enhance the anti-reflection rate of the lens.
The other two lenses of the OnePlus 12 are the 64 million super light and shadow periscope telephoto (supports suspended prism anti-shake, 3X optical lossless zoom, 6x optical quality zoom, and supports up to 120x digital zoom) and the IMX581 flagship ultra-wide angle ( Supports 3.5cm macro shooting).
Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro uses a combination of 14mm ultra-wide angle + 23mm main camera + 75mm telephoto. The main camera sensor is Light Hunter 900, and the telephoto and ultra-wide-angle sensors are Samsung JN1. In addition, Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro supports 1024-level variable aperture between f1.4-f4.0 and ultra-wide-angle macro function.

Through actual measurement comparison, it can be seen that the camera performance of the two mobile phones is quite excellent, and the main difference lies in the imaging style. Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro is relatively plain, while OnePlus 12 puts more emphasis on the sense of light and shadow, with a more realistic contrast between light and dark. I personally prefer the film performance of OnePlus. If it were you, would you choose Hasselblad or Leica?
3 Battery life: OnePlus 12 has obvious advantages
Finally, let’s take a look at the battery life. As the basis for mobile phone use, whether the battery life is long-lasting is undoubtedly crucial. After all, “without power, no matter how good the show is, you can’t play.” In terms of battery life hardware configuration, OnePlus 12 undoubtedly has obvious advantages. It is equipped with the largest 5400mAh battery in the history of OnePlus flagships, and supports the longevity version of 100W super flash charging + 50W wireless flash charging + 10W reverse charging configuration. The Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro has a 4880mAh battery with 120W wired flash charging, 50W wireless flash charging and 10W reverse charging.
As usual, we conducted a ZOL five-hour battery life test on it, including the following items:
Watch iQiyi videos: play 45 minutes of 1080P resolution videos in full screen;
Browse Douyin short videos: Slide the video interface to browse videos, a total of 50 minutes;
QQ chat: 20 minutes text chat; 15 minutes voice chat and 15 minutes video chat, totaling 50 minutes;
Scan Weibo: enter the list page and slide for 45 minutes;
Camera recording: record 1080P 30 frame video for 15 minutes; the default main camera takes 15 minutes for a total of 30 minutes;
Play Honor of Kings: Battle mode “Actual Confrontation”, map Kings Canyon 5V5, test for 60 minutes;
Use mobile Taobao: enter the Taobao homepage and slide for 20 minutes in total.
Judging from the test results, the small battery undoubtedly has a negative impact on the battery life performance of Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro. After the same 5-hour battery life test, the remaining power of Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro is 45%; in comparison, the remaining power of OnePlus 12 reaches 54%. I believe that in daily use, it is not stressful to charge it once a day.
In addition to battery life, fast charging capability is equally important. In order to test the charging speed of the two mobile phones, we drained the power of both mobile phones to 1% and used the original charger to charge. When the fast charging acceleration function was turned on at the same time, the OnePlus 12 reached the full display level after 26 minutes. battery, while Xiaomi Mi 14 Pro is a little faster, only 22 minutes. However, considering the difference in battery capacity, the charging speed of the two can basically be regarded as the same level.
