Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M12

75.7% Samsung Galaxy M12 smartphone review: Strong battery in the budget Galaxy phone | Notebookcheck
The Samsung Galaxy M12 is affordable, looks good, and has a large battery. However, we also discovered issues in our test like the Wi-Fi speed, for example. Is the Galaxy smartphone worth buying anyway?
60% Samsung Galaxy M12 review: Smooth budget performer
Source: Gadgets Now English
Samsung Galaxy M12 can be a good choice for customers who are looking for a Samsung smartphone under Rs 15,000. The smartphone offers a quad-rear camera, HD+ display and is backed by a 6000mAh battery which can easily last for two days. It is a smooth performer and can be your pick if you are migrating from a feature phone to a smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy M12 review: A surprisingly good budget phone
Source: Sam Mobile English
The Galaxy M12 took me by surprise, as you probably already surmised after reading the title of this review. The display’s quality is rather mediocre, but the 90Hz refresh rate works well most of the time and makes for smooth animations and scrolling.

70% Samsung Galaxy M12 review: 90Hz on a budget
Source: 91mobiles English
The Galaxy M12 banks on its fast 90Hz refresh screen and massive 6,000mAh battery to make its mark in the budget segment. The other aspects of the phone are less impressive. Thankfully the phone ships with Android 11 out of the box and has a UI that has become quite clean over the years. The phone could have used an FHD+ resolution panel and a punch hole instead of the dated waterdrop notch. Apart from that, the Galaxy M12 is a reasonable buy, not just for users invested in Samsung devices over the years but for anyone looking to purchase an easy-to-use, no-frills budget smartphone with a clean UI.

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.
