Reviews for the Infinix Note 12 VIP

72% Infinix Note 12 VIP review: the camera is the focal point for this budget phone
Source: Creative Bloq English
The Infinix Note 12 VIP, and its little sibling, the Note 12, is a budget phone with a single important distinction: its camera. With a big, sharp 108MP main camera, along with an ultrawide and macro lens, along with a 16MP selfie camera, all for under £250, the Note 12 VIP is a contender for those looking for a camera phone on a budget, just be aware the processor is decidedly pedestrian and the brand is relatively untested in this market.

Infinix Note 12 VIP Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Infinix Note 12 VIP does have a great set of features as the 4G phone. It holds a pretty decent viewing experience with respect to a new design aspect, while the hardware and software performance doesn’t disappoint the users. Though the camera quality might give saturated colors, overall the camera experience is not that bad either. However, the battery life could have improved, still, you don’t have to wait to charge your phone as the company gives the faster charging option. Overall, this phone is worth your money. But if you are looking for a better alternative, check out the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. It has all-rounder features, a beautiful camera quality, and long-lasting battery life. So, make the final decision after comparing both devices.
