Design and Display

The HTC Desire 12 is a true definition of a refined sleek smartphone with almost bezel-less display and the widely used 18:9 aspect ratio. While this is attractive enough, it is also simplistic in its approach when it comes to design. There bezels at the top and bottom have been trimmed to create more space for the display.

Budget smartphones like the HTC Desire 12 does not have much to offer in terms of colourful display. You have a 5.5-inch screen with 1440 X 720 pixels display with pixel density of 293 ppi. While this not as rich as you have in premium smartphones but it is sort of the norm in budget ones.

Battery and Camera

Also, the smartphone is armed with a single camera on both the front and back. There is a 5MP selfie camera with a wide angle feature and a 13MP rear camera with flash for taking clear pictures in not well lit areas.
