Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Except for the Exynos 850 chipset, the Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho is an overall good smartphone in the low-budget segment. Where Galaxy has a huge collection, Nacho is one more phone that adds to the Galaxy A12 series. Since the phone is not available globally, there is no way for you to access it. Either you have to wait or go to the alternative. According to company information, they may be available on their official website. This colorful smartphone is a good choice for everyone looking for a low-budget smartphone with lots of awesome specs. If you’re spending $149 (Rs 12,000), the Galaxy A12 Nacho is an amazing smartphone that’s worth your money. There is also the Realme C25Y at the same price, otherwise, you can check for the TCL 20R smartphone.

Model:

The Samsung Galaxy A12 Exynos is the relaunched version of the Galaxy A12. It is a new variant of the phone which comes in with a different processor as compared to the original version. This new version of the Galaxy A12 features the Exynos 850 processor as compared to the original Galaxy A12 which was equipped with the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. In terms of its performance, the Exynos 850 is slightly more powerful and power-efficient than the MediaTek Helio P35, all thanks to its 8nm manufacturing process. Apart from that, this latest version of the phone also comes with Android 11 (with One UI Core 3) out of the box, which should make it eligible for the Android 13 update. This phone comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM paired with either 64GB or 128GB of storage. As far as its display is concerned, the phone comes with a 6.5-inch PLS IPS LCD display. The large display simply means that a good grip is a must if anyone is intending to skip a case. While the display sticks to an HD+ resolution, it is still perfectly large enough and clear enough to catch up on one’s favorite shows. The phone also has a headphone jack. This is definitely appreciable as wired headphones are the best way to enjoy sound on the latest Galaxy A12 as opposed to the down-firing mono speaker.

This phone too maintains the side-mounted fingerprint reader as found in the original version of Galaxy A12, ditching the rear-mounted reader found on Galaxy A11. The camera setup is also similar to the original version with a 48MP wide lens, 5MP ultrawide sensor, 2MP macro sensor and 2MP depth sensor. The main shooter works well enough outdoors for a budget camera phone. In addition, the macro and ultra-wide cameras can also be tapped into for extra flexibility. Overall, the camera app is definitely a breeze to navigate, though it might take a moment or two to hunt down the macro button as it is hidden away in the More tab. While the camera setup is quite good in the phone, the fun peripheral options are not always in good form. For instance, the macro lens offers only 2MP and it takes quite a few attempts to achieve a reasonable image at times. A dedicated night mode is also missing on the Galaxy A12. Therefore, there has to be some trial and error beyond daylight hours. Apart from the rear camera setup, there is an 8MP selfie camera on the front. As for its connectivity, this model includes a dual-SIM card slot, a microSD slot, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0 and a 3.5mm headphone jack. In terms of its battery, this smartphone carries a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging, just like the original Galaxy A12.In a nutshell, this is a great addition to the already existing original Galaxy A12.

ARM Mali-G52 MP1: Integrated mid range graphics card with 1 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node. The MC1 / MP1 variant is the smallest version.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Exynos 850: Mid range octa core SoC with 8 small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores that can clock up to 2 GHz. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a LTE Cat 7 (300 Mbit/s download) modem and WiFi-5 (ac). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
