Reviews for the Infinix Note 12 Turbo (G96)
The lack of a higher refresh rate panel plays to the detriment of the Infinix Note 12 Turbo as does the bloatware-laden XOS skin. However, the device is priced lower than competing products like the Redmi Note 11S (review) and has more processing power than the Moto G52 (review). Those considering good performance, dual speakers, decent daylight photography, and a standout design in their buying decisions can definitely give the Infinix Note 12 Turbo a close consideration.

Infinix Note 12 Turbo is a decent choice for day-to-day use, however, given its asking price of Rs. 14,999, some certain misses bring down the overall experience. The performance and battery life of the Note 12 Turbo is great and enough for daily usage, but camera and software are major bummers. Since, the sub-15k sengement is largely dominated by Xiaomi, Realme and other brands, Infinix should have offered something extraordinary to disrupt this segment. They could have added some interesting themes and customization as a part of their Marvel Studios partnership but it was only limited to packaging. It is a missed opportunity for Infinix.

So, at the price of RM769, I’m impressed by what the Infinix Note 12 G96 has to offer. Sure, it can be improved in a few aspects but I think at this price point – it’s really good.

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo is a good phone for most users however, given its asking price of ₹14,999, there are certain issues that bring down the overall experience. The performance of the Note 12 Turbo is great, the camera takes good looking pictures and the battery life on offer is enough for most users. And while all of these features make it a great option for those looking for a phone under ₹15,000, Infinix doesn’t have anything extraordinary to disrupt this segment that’s largely dominated by Xiaomi, Realme and other brands. The Marvel Studios partnership is a missed opportunity since it only involves packaging changes, a few stickers and a TPU case but would have bolstered its uniqueness if Infinix was offering a customized theme and other functional changes.

There’s lots to like about the Infinix Note 12 G96 starting with the fact you get decent core specs even at the cheapest price. A decent processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage at under $200 is certainly more than many rivals. A large AMOLED screen, decent (in good lighting) main camera and possible two-day battery life also makes it a tempting phone. However, there are a number of downsides and things that rivals offer which hold the Note 12 G96 back from scoring higher. The display is only 60Hz, there’s no 5G support, no IP waterproofing, the fingerprint scanner is overly sensitive and worst of all, the XOS software is difficult to get on with thanks to some strange choices and more bloatware than I’ve seen in a long time.

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.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
