There is huge competition in the budget segment in the Indian smartphone market. More than one smartphone from almost every company in this segment is available in the market and new phones are also being launched all the time. South Korean giant Samsung recently launched a new budget entry-level smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A12, in the Galaxy A series. This phone presented in two variants will compete directly with smartphones from Chinese companies like Xiaomi and Realme on the market. Let’s see the power of the Galaxy A12 in this review.
The Galaxy A12 comes with a plastic body. The phone was introduced in blue, black, and white color options. We used its black color variant. The design of the back panel of the phone is divided into two parts. The textured striped pattern is on the top while the matte finish is on the bottom. This dual finish makes the back design of the phone attractive. The rear panel has a sweep-shaped camera module on the top left, which has four camera sensors. The LED flash is located under the camera module.
Speaking of the front design, it has an Infinity-V display, which has a selfie camera above it. The phone’s bezels are thin, while the chin is thicker than these. The right side of the Galaxy A12 has a power button and a fingerprint scanner is also available. Just above the power button are the volume buttons. The location of the SIM card tray is on the left side. The bottom of the phone has a USB Type-C charging stand and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The overall appearance of the Galaxy A12 is good. Although it is a budget phone, it also gives a little premium feel in terms of looks. Due to the textured back, the phone provides a good grip and protects the back panel from scratches or fingerprints. The phone can be easily operated with one hand.
The Samsung Galaxy A12 has a 6.5 inch HD + screen. However, it is not an OLED, but an LCD screen. This budget Samsung phone has an adaptive brightness feature. This feature automatically adjusts the screen brightness based on your existing lighting conditions. The phone can also be used easily in daylight. The Galaxy A12 has a blue light filter, which reduces eye strain when using the phone. This Samsung phone offers a better screen experience according to the budget segment.
The Galaxy A12 has four cameras on the back. The main camera of the phone is 48 megapixels. It includes an ultra-wide 5-megapixel, 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is an 8-megapixel camera on the front for the selfie.
Photos clicked in daylight from Samsung’s phone are good and to a large extent natural. In this, you will not see unnecessary artificial colors. There are a lot of clear details in the photo. Yes, when you click on a photo in 48-megapixel mode, the camera processing will definitely be a bit slow. The macro camera also clicks on good photos. The performance of the macro camera impresses in this price segment.
