Samsung Galaxy A12 Evaluation – Professionals and cons, Verdict


The Samsung Galaxy A12 was introduced within the Indian market as an inexpensive smartphone, with its value beginning at Rs 12,999. The cellphone presents a number of options geared toward attracting funds customers, equivalent to a large battery, good charging speeds, and an honest digital camera. So how does the Galaxy A12 fare as a each day driver? Let’s discover out on this overview.


For a value of Rs 12,999, the Galaxy A12 does really feel a bit underwhelming contemplating it packs in solely an enormous battery and an honest set of cameras that work nicely in daylight situations. Objectively, the shortage of highly effective internals will play to the detriment of the Galaxy A12 because the market is stuffed with cheaper options.

The lowdown

Like every other funds Samsung cellphone, the Galaxy A12 has a unibody plastic design with a textured end on the again. The sq. quad-camera setup is on the top-right and on the aspect is the fingerprint sensor of a capacitive selection. The cellphone just isn’t light-weight and even with the body being fairly grippy it would nonetheless be a job to function the cellphone one-handed. A USB C port, 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker grille are current on the backside. You might be getting a decent-sized 6.5-inch HD+ show TFT LCD panel with the refresh fee being a normal 60Hz and a waterdrop notch, referred to as the Infinity V show, current on prime. As with every different Samsung panel, the viewing expertise is sweet though the brightness may have been higher.

When it comes to cameras, there’s a 48MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro shooter. Daylight photographs are very a lot acceptable with the occasional drop in dynamic vary. Distinction ranges are good and largely publicity is dealt with nicely. The ultra-wide sensor works nicely however has hotter color tones and lacks the detailing of the first sensor.


The macro sensor is common whereas the depth shooter works nicely for background separation. The low-light pictures leaves a bit to be desired, due to its sluggish focus instances and lengthy shutter speeds. The dearth of devoted night time mode additionally doesn’t assist. On the entrance is an 8MP selfie shooter which takes good selfies however not a lot at night time.

The efficiency is dealt with by the Helio G35 SoC which does appear barely underpowered seeing what the competitors has on provide. It’s supported by 4GB RAM and as much as 128GB of storage expandable by way of a microSD card. Briefly, any common smartphone exercise might be achieved with out stress however graphics-heavy utilization might be problematic.

On the software program aspect, the cellphone runs Android 10-based OneUI 2.5 which is now a bit previous for my liking. I do, nevertheless, desire the convenience of usability as in comparison with a few of the different skins out there. The A12 packs in a 5,000mAh battery that may be charged utilizing the 15W fast-charging assist in below two hours. The cellphone will fairly simply final you all the day on average utilization.

Remaining verdict

The Galaxy A12’s saving grace is its large battery and a set of cameras that carry out nicely within the daylight. In most different features, it’s largely a hit-or-miss and that makes it falter in opposition to the competitors. The funds section has developed fairly a bit and I imagine that Samsung’s newer Galaxy M12 is a greater reply to its rivals.
