This is gonna be a little tough. Infinix Note 30 is priced at ৳18,999 (8/128 GB) and the Xiaomi Redmi 12 is priced at ৳18,999 (8/256 GB) in Bangladesh. As you can see that the price is the same for both devices. Xiaomi is highly popular in terms of its brand value. It is the most popular brand in Bangladesh as of now and it is still offering some fine smartphones for consumers. Whereas, Infinix is behind in terms of brand value. Although, they are climbing up in recent times as they keep bringing surprise releases with fine value-for-money phones. In that sense, the Note 30 also grabbed a significant amount of attention and response from the market. So, let us have a quick look at their features.

When it comes to design and, both look great, both have a glass back, both come with IP53-certified dust and splash resistance. The Redmi 12 is a bit minimalistic and more common with that iPhone-like back camera setup. The Note 30 looks a bit heavier with the square back camera design and slightly bigger lens. For us, the Note 30 looks better, more elegant, and more individualistic. However, We also do appreciate the minimalistic approach of Xiaomi here and with a slightly thinner and also lighter body. Now it comes down to you to decide which one suits your style better.
When it comes to the display, both are almost equally great. The Note 30 from Infinix is slightly ahead with its 120Hz refresh rate and slightly higher brightness. But the difference is really minimum here.
Now Here comes the big deal, performance. It’s not even needed to mention that the Infinix Note 12 is a clear winner with its superior Helio G99 chipset. It also comes with a much faster 45W charger. It also has a faster UFS 2.2 internal storage. There is no phone at this point that can beat the Note 30 of Infinix and this is simply a fact.
In the camera section, Infinix wins again with its better 64 MP back camera as well as a better 16 MP front camera. There is not much to say here. The shots look better and the video quality is better on the Infinix phone because of the better camera features and resolution.
Overall, even though, Xiaomi is the number 1 brand right now in Bangladesh and this series of Redmi phones is trustworthy and the Redmi 12 is still a fine and competitive phone with up-to-date and optimized software, The Note 30 from Infinix wins the battle for us. It’s a bold phone that stands out in the crowd. it is packed with a lot of features, coming with an unbeatable performance for the price, a dominating 45W charger, an excellent camera, and no lacking in design, display and build quality. The software quality is also pretty good and optimized. We are definitely picking Infinix in this case.
