Reviews for the Realme 12

75% Realme 12 review: a decent option for budget buyers
Source: 91mobiles English
When compared with its competitors, the Realme 12 loses out to the Redmi Note 13 (review), which packs an AMOLED display with higher peak brightness and a better chipset for gaming needs. The Infinix Note 30 (review), though slightly dated now, boasts a JBL-powered speaker, ensuring crisp audio quality. The Realme smartphone, in contrast, offers a sleek design. Its performance is also satisfactory for most daily activities, and the cameras excel in daylight. Furthermore, its battery life aligns well with its performance, offering long-lasting backup, making the Realme 12 a viable choice for those prioritising endurance over other features.

Realme 12 5G Review: Stylish Mid-Ranger With Great Cameras
Source: Cashify English
The Realme 12 5G offers a great blend of style and substance with its watch-inspired design and excellent cameras. It features a large 6.67-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, excellent cameras and long-lasting battery life. However, you will need to contend with a plastic build, LCD display and pre-installed apps. If cameras and design are your priorities, look no further than the Realme 12 5G in this segment. Otherwise, phones like the Lava Curve 5G, Samsung Galaxy F15 5G, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 offer much better specifications at a similar price.

ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Dimensity 6100+: The Dimensity 6100 Plus is a lower mid-range SoC with an integrated 5G modem. It includes two fast ARM Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2.2 GHz and six power efficient Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2 GHz. The specifications are similar to the old Dimensity 700 SoC and nearly identical to the 6020.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.72":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
