Reviews for the Infinix Note 12

Infinix Note 12 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Infinix Note 12 smartphone has an equal share of flaws and advantages. If we look at the positive points, you are getting almost everything that is necessary for your day-to-day usage. It has a good camera, offers causal gaming, a long-lasting battery, and many additional perks. But at the same time, the smartphone market is loaded with similar specs and features to smartphones. But if you are looking for a simple 4G phone that will provide subtle support in your daily activities, you can check out Infinix Note 10 for sure. But if you can increase the budget a bit, we highly recommend picking the Note 10 sibling, the Infinix Note 10 Pro smartphone. This phone has all-rounder attributes that fit well according to the price point.

Infinix Note 12 Review Philippines: Setting the Bar High
Source: Unbox English
The Note 11S was already a great phone for under Php 10k, and Infinix stepped up their game even further with the Note 12 by offering as much as 256GB internal storage and an AMOLED display for the same price. While it has a few setbacks, we still laud Infinix’s effort in bringing the best possible specs-to-price ratio on a budget mid-range phone in the Philippines.

Infinix Note 12 Unboxing, Quick Review: Budget AMOLED Phablet
Source: Unbox English
While it shares most of the hardware used on the Note 11S, the shift to an AMOLED display and having as much as 256GB internal storage–all for under Php 10k–makes the Infinix Note 12 an interesting budget phone in the Philippines.

71% Infinix Note 12 Review: Software restricts true potential
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Infinix Note 12 had to overcome the dominant players in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment including the Realme C35, Realme Narzo 50, and the Redmi Note 11. However, it feels like despite having a capable processor, the Infinix Note 12 falls short in front of these devices. The Redmi Note 11, which is priced at Rs 13,499 for the base model has a 90Hz AMOLED panel and not a 60Hz panel such as on the Note 12. Furthermore, it has a quad camera system including an ultra-wide angle sensor which is missing on the Note 12. Moreover, MIUI is certainly more polished than XOS, providing a smoother and more stable experience. In addition, benchmarks show that Snapdragon 680 is slightly more powerful than Helio G88. The Narzo 50 on the other hand also has a MediaTek processor but its a more capable chip, i.e. the Helio G96. It also has a 120Hz LCD panel and the same battery capacity with identical charging speeds as Note 12. Lastly, Realme UI is also more efficient than XOS.

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.
