Best Freelancers to help you Grow your Business

HTC have really had trying times on their smartphones recently because of shortage in sales and it is undeniably because of the inability of the OEM to offer the level of value for money the competitors has. That said, this is another release named the HTC Desire 12s which offers slightly reduced specs than the Desire 12 predecessor. There is also a rather unconventional design on the smartphone but then you can see for yourself.

Design and Display

The front view of the smartphone is the usual ordeal and will easily blend with the sea of smartphones out there. However, things get a bit interesting flipping the smartphone so that the rear is visible and everything seems to be alright until you sport the camera position. Looking like a dual camera, the rear camera and flash are placed somewhere between the too left and the upper central fingerprint scanner. You can get the smartphone in silver, black and red colour variants depending on your choice.

Well, the display is very much a budget one with an HD+ resolution and a somewhat average sized LCD screen. There’s is a decent amount of bezel around the screen and it is a bit much at the top and bottom. All of these delivers only an average visual experience, nothing spectacular.

Battery and Camera

On to what’s keeping your smartphone on, you’ve got the 3, 075mAh battery in charge. Definitely a mediocre capacity, this is still sufficient for a smartphone being that several other smartphones in this category have a similar capacity. However, a USB Type-C would have been a better option than the rather old MicroUSB port featured on the smartphone. But then, what you see is what you get.

As per taking pictures, the smartphone has the same megapixel on both its front and rear camera. The rear 13MP camera has an f/2.0 aperture with PDAF,  HDR and other features. Also, there is a 13MP camera at the front in charge of all of selfies, wefies or what have you.
