Short Review

[Design]: In terms of overall design the Samsung Galaxy F12 is built with a plastic frame and plastic back. At the rear, the back has a square cut-out which houses 4 cameras. The back body is prone to scratches hence, a mobile case is advisable.
At the front, we have 6.5 inch IPS display (90Hz refresh rate), Samsung has used Gorilla glass protection for the display which isn’t that common at this price point. At the sides, we have SIM tray (with dedicated MicroSD card slot) on the left and volume-power buttons on the right respectively.

[Battery]: The smartphone houses 6,000 mAh battery and comes with 15W fast charger. The combination of One UI and huge battery makes it one of the best in battery segment under Rs 12,000.

[Processor]: Samsung Galaxy F12 is powered by an octa-core Samsung Exynos 850 processor. It comes with 4GB of RAM. These variants are paired with 64GB and 128GB of storage(RAM) respectively. Storage is expandable further using a microSD card.

[Camera]: The smartphone consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera, 5-megapixel ultra wide camera, 2-megapixel macro camera, and 2-megapixel depth camera. At the front, it has an 16-megapixel camera for selfies. The images produced from the primary lenses at the front and rear comes out really good. The ultra-wide camera also produces great images but there is a difference in contrast when compared with images from main rear lens.

[Overall]: The smartphone offers balanced features in every department and combining it with the brand’s image, makes the smartphone one of the best under Rs 12,000. If having high quality display is not a priority none of the cons mentioned above bothers you, then we recommend “buy” for this smartphone.
