Reviews for the Infinix Hot 12 Play

83% Infinix HOT 12 Play NFC Review: An Affordable Smartphone With Big Screen and Battery Life
Source: Root Nation English
Infinix HOT 12 Play NFC is an interesting budget smartphone that really has a lot to offer in its class. It has a pleasant modern design and excellent assembly, a large display with high refresh rate, a decent level of performance, which is complemented by the RAM expansion option at the expense of storage. But one of its strongest points, beyond any doubt, is its amazing battery life. In addition, the smartphone has many other nice things, such as NFC and a number of unusual software features. Where it is not very strong is in photo and video capabilities. The fingerprint scanner works great, but you have to reach out for it due to its location. Plus there are nuances with software localization and a bug with forced 90 Hz, which, however, the manufacturer may fix in the near future. And yes, it is a good option for those who need a budget smartphone with a large display and excellent battery life.

66% Infinix Hot 12 Play Review: Is it Appealing Enough?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Photos in broad daylight come out to be decent in terms of both sharpness and overall detailing. Colours, however, look faded at times. Edge detection in portraits is fine while the overall photo also looks okay. Contrast and skin tone in selfies is not consistent but the detailing in the photo is again well handled. The front flash performs as it should and is bright enough but I am not sure how useful it would be. The only use I found is that it lights up while you charge the device.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
