HTC Desire 12 - User Reviews

  • For a 90 dollar phone, it's worth the price, nice phone, love the UI

  • i just received mine a week ago..been using it.. one word...nice !!

  • Don't bother reading the paid bashing of the phone.I've bought the phone for a family member and it's really great deal.Screen resolution even not as high as you expect is prolly bettter than many full HD ones (cause if you've done some research you will find out that resolution don't mean so much).Battery sounds like a weak choise but it got me surprised it can get you one day usage with no problem(or even more if you are a light user) .It's not the fastest phone as you may expect but it doesn't freeze like some other phones in this price range do (I use HTC U12+ and I was expecting way worse performance when I saw the mediatek chip)As a whole If you're looking for a cheap and nice looking phone which ain't gonna let you down go for it.Another thing is that its really lightweight and looks and feels premium (the one I've got have 2 sim's slots and a dedicated one for SD card which is awesome especially when my U12+ have only slots for either 2 sim's or 1 sim and a sd card)Other things I've liked are the Wi-fi and mobile data speed as well as downloading and installing apps speed .So give it a try and don't listen to random people on the internet that prolly never even saw the phone in person ( and are probably paid)

  • Poor battery! D:

  • No it said in specs

  • Device security is very low compared to similar devices from lenovo and samsung, also it uses mobile data even when on wifi, and cannot control which app allowed to use mobile data

  • Is this not gorilla glasses?

  • Thus far, the battery is okay and like like the weight. BUT... The phone will NOT connect to a computer for file transfer, something it *should* do as do most phones. If you connect a Type A connector with a female plug, you *can* connect a flash drive, and the phone will recognize and write to it. It might also work if your flash device has a Type A connector. The pictures are terrible, very grainy.

  • I cannot open it after uninstalling some apps. Google speaker is displayed on the screen instead of keys to enter my password. Helppppp.

  • Dedicated slot...

  • Been working a charm since I got it.

  • Is it real dual sim with dedicated slot for card or it is hybrid?

  • I have one coming love it

  • true..dey hav come up wid lotz of good chips dis year mainly helio series..which is amazing..but den its underrated..thats it..

  • I would do the same. M8 is still pretty good. Would maybe only go with a 2016 flagship like HTC 10 or Xperia XZ or Galaxy S7

  • its really a good cell phone if compared with Samsung HTC picture quality and camera best

  • I have been using this phones since 2 weeks and this phone has been phenomenally good.Its battery timing is good and its camera is also good. And in 629 AED its one of the finest phone.

  • same here

  • Can anybody write battery standby time? Talktime? Surftime? Musictime? Quad core CPU should be energy efficient. Also HTC say something about energy save mode. Hope to see owners mind.

  • How to change widgets on lock screen on htc desire 12

  • They should use SD 626/SD 636 in Desire 12. Why this poor chip in 2018's hTc. hTc should grow up & this is the time

  • Acording to HTC's web site the video recording is 720p, not 1080p

  • add tihs too dual camera dual 4g sim card same time

  • The specks of this phone belong in 2016. This should be no more than 150 euro.

  • desire 12 look great in in gold

  • Bad CPU doesn't look that good I guess I stick with my HTC One m8

  • Only 2730mAh? Is this a joke HTC? Even Moto E5 and E5 Plus are getting better battery life at an affordable price.

  • C'mon HTC!! C'mon men!!! Whatta low specs. C'mon!

  • and why is that ? MediaTek has come out with so many SOCs. Go research and then comment. DOn't blindly adhere to a fad.

  • This is not mid-range.... this is low range. Personally I wouldn't buy anything with a Mediatek chip at any price.

  • less than a mid range phone. HD display, mediatek processor and small battery. I do not know why this phone is made in our days.

  • no fingerprint, old cpu. and most importantly HTC won't give any future updates/support for this device it will be just like HTC U Play.

  • Redmi 5 that have same resolution and same size 5.7 screen that have maybe same amoutn of bezel but at least it has SD450 in that is way better then some MTK quad core and price is 110 euro to only

  • I will buy

  • Considering specs - this is 130 USD device at best. Yes - it does have a nice look, but... that's all it has... Who is the hell in his sober mind will buy it for 200 euros?

  • phones would be great on US prepaid carriers like metro n cricket but HTC wont even expand the markets to covet it i bet n there goes money at the table for them.

  • By the way this phone has Android Nougat not Oreo.

  • HTC needs to tie up with some of the best service providers and have them promote the phone. Don't go lower on the specs, HTC has or had the potential to out beat the Galaxy Range or IPhone. What happened??

  • Micro usb 2.0 Pffft Htc please kill yourself

  • Yes probably people will choose MI A1 or Redmi note 5 pro Chaina version

  • 720:1440 resolution? all because they used MTK chipset 18:9 HD+ VS 16:9 FHD? ask your costumers HTC they're the ones how's going to buy your opinion reply me

  • responsable price great design.

  • Gor that price probably best option is a1

  • Get desire 12+

  • Mediatek, hahahah, RIP HTC.

  • Battery super small

  • Mediatek CPU in HTC ? no way

  • Affordable device.

  • in 200€ it a great phone.....

  • didn't know just android oreo can make a phone cost 200$

  • What HTC expect omg? Like really???? Really??? REALLY??? HTC joke of the 2018. Only a clumsy or blind deaf person will buy this junk for 200.

  • The only thing in this phone is "Oreo" .......Really,End of HTC.

  • $399-$499

  • End of an Era, HTC is now over

  • Meh. Cut the price to about $125 USD, then these specs make sense.

  • I'm very happy with my honor 7x

  • 720p in 5.5 inch display and no fingerprint for $200? No thanks

  • HTC growup!

  • 720p HD display, Big Bizels, poop battery, Mediatek processor, Micro-Usb, the price of this device should be less than 150$.

  • Joke of the year... lol htc really :p ;p

  • Why... I mean just whyyy... Why are you launching this piece of crap big bezels, no snapdragon, even no dual camera , planning to sell this for free?👻
