SAMSUNG GALAXY A12 Review: THE ULTIMATE BUDGET PHONE - Galaxy User Guide

So Samsung has a new budget phone again. Hey guys! Mary it's, your tech girl! I will just sit now guys because I'm tired of always standing up. You follow me on my social media. I'm always standing in all of my videos and sometimes it takes an hour or if it's too long - sometimes 1 1/2 hours - yes. We're now going to sit because it is really tiring. Samsung Galaxy A10, Samsung Galaxy A10s and this time. This is not an entry-level smartphone, but it is definitely Samsung's new budget. Right now it's really like the Samsung month, guys. I bought this guys on Lazada. And I got it for Php9,990 because the variant I bought is the highest variant, which is the 6GB RAM, with 128GB of internal storage. Opening of the box, It comes with a smaller box. And inside, I feel like this has no jelly case.

Quick Start Guide and we also have a warranty card. This is our phone itself, the Samsung Galaxy A12. Fast charging power, brick. USB type-C charger to USB type-A charging cable. And its very thin tool, the SIM ejector tool. Look like a beauty guru now : It's so corny (giggles), So guys,. That are the things included in the box of the Samsung Galaxy A12. It is complete, except the free jelly case. That's it for today's video guys. I hope you enjoyed our very quick unboxing. The reason is that it is Php9,990 because the one I bought is 6GB RAM with 128GB of internal storage. It has a 4GB RAM variant which retails for Php7,990 on Lazada. (ENTERTAINMENT, music) : So, Samsung, Galaxy A12.

The last two years where we had A series, If you notice it looks like glass, but it is plastic or glassistic like that, and it has a glossy back finish that has a rainbow effect on its back. It changed this time to Samsung. Its design doesn’t look like an A series. It's like : We know guys and we can distinguish if it's an A series. But now, since they have changed the design, you'll see it more and you'll see it more. This time, guys. It is no longer glossy but has a very pleasing back finish. It's got these small dots somewhere on its back somewhere on the top, making it easier to hold because it has this kind of texture. Still, it has a matte finish to show Samsung branding there.

It also has a square camera setup which is very different from the old Samsung A series budget device, with a LED flash. We also don't have a fingerprint sensor on the back anymore. On top it has a microphone. The right side is its volume, rocker. It also has a power button, guys that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. The left side can see the SIM tray, guys. And don't worry, it's dual SIM. It can carry two 4G LTE SIM cards and one microSD card. And lastly, it has a headphone jack and another microphone, USB type-C charging cable and speaker grille. Anyway, I had no problems with its fingerprint sensor. Actually I liked it more than before, where it is always on the back. Unlike in the past A series budget, the device.

Before we talk about its display, I just noticed something on this device, while I am using it. In the last few days. It's made from polycarbonate plastic and even its frame. Everything you need to know for your overall physical appearance by guys. Now talk about its display. To be honest, I am very fine with its new design that Samsung has made. I am just kind of disappointed about its display. It's got a 6.5'' IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720x1600 pixels. And for the price I paid for this smartphone is Php9,990 again. If you buy a smartphone on other brands with the price of Php10,000, you'll be able to buy a smartphone with 6GB of RAM and also a Full HD+ resolution. Again, guys, display is what we see first or what we first notice on a smartphone.

It is important that even if it's a budget device, it should be Full HD+ as much as possible. But for a Samsung display it's fine. There are just times it is lacking on its brightness, especially under direct sunlight, because that's what IPS displays can only give. Also if you see guys it's already 2021 but we have a notch here on Samsung Galaxy A12. This part is kind, if surprising, but we can't do anything about it. This notch has an 8MP front camera. On the bottom, you might notice that its side nettles are a bit thick, especially its chin. Of course it can not be on the top, because it's the "chin" or what? (laughs) I just realized what I said.

Anyways, (grooves) (entertainment music) It has a 48MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture, 5MP f/2.2 aperture, ultra-wide angle lens, 2MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor. As expected guys for a budget device, The set of cameras we have is OK. I'm not complaining because that is always what we get— four cameras where there is a depth sensor and a macro lens, especially a Samsung - device. For the front camera, as usual for a Samsung device, you will be able to use the wide and ultra-wide angle lens, even if it only has a single front image. And scouts, both the front and rear cameras can be used to shoot 1080p at 30 FPS. In fairness to sample, video we have, and even for sample photos taken by the 8MP front camera. It didn't disappoint me if it is only 8MP.

It is still clear, and you can clearly see the clarity and quality of the photos and videos taken by the Samsung Galaxy A12. It is surprisingly good for a budget device. It is very clear here and the subject-to-background separation is good. Let's now try to turn off the lights. Here's another sample video where we turned off the two soft box light. I actually expect something of a noisy video, but in fairness it is still okay. About the rear camera guys Actually, the pictures taken by the 48MP main camera are okay. I was also surprised because the wide and ultra-wide angle lens had a consistent quality. I do however, don't like the subject-to-background separation when we use their depth sensor or live focus option.

I'm just not that satisfied with the colors and it's a little undersaturated. (Entertainment music) To be honest, since I bought 6GB of RAM, I actually had no problems with it in terms of multitasking, switching between applications. It's fast enough for the price that I paid for it. If it remains the same, you'll buy its lower variant, which is the 4GB of RAM, which costs Php7,990. It has MediaTek Helio P35 with 12 nm chipset. It also has an octa-core CPU. I run AnTuTu on it guys before I download the applications and games. Even its result was quite low. If you remember the previous Samsung budget device, which is the Samsung Galaxy A10s, it has MediaTek Helio P22. The changes are really big. That's me comparing a Samsung device to another Samsung device.

If we compare this phone to other budget phones that were released in the last quarter of 2020, the Samsung Galaxy A12 is kind of behind in terms of gaming, with the smartphones that I was talking about. Gaming is okay. You can really play this wild rift on this one. On this one, we did not experience any lags while playing Wild Rift. Other games like Call of Duty and Asphalt 9 there is a bit of noticeable lag and it can kind of hinder your gaming. The gaming experience that I had was not that smooth. So definitely, this Samsung Galaxy A12 is more for people who are only casual gamers or for people who don't play.

What I like about the Samsung Galaxy A12, before we talk about its battery, is its option because it has another option of 4GB RAM with 128GB of storage or 6GB of RAM with 128GB internal storage., If you are going to buy the lower variant To be honest it is Php7,990 and that's actually worth it, because we already have 128GB internal storage. If you will remember, the 128GB price range is already Php8,000 to Php10,000. If you do not have a budget and only want to buy its Php7,990 lower variant,. It has One UI 2.5 based on Android 10. Moreover it is still not Android 11 and does not have the latest One UI 3.0. But this is already expected from a Samsung budget. It has a Dolby Atmos feature, but we can only use that when we use a wired or wireless earphones.

It also has a dark and focus mode, and then its power button is located here in the notification toggle also. It also has bloatwares, but that is not that many as on other smartphones. It already has an installed Lazada app and YouTube Music. It has already some pre-installed Google apps and YouTube app. A good suggestion for students are the Samsung budget devices because it already has some Microsoft applications that we can use for school. (Entertainment, music) Now for the battery. The reason it is thick and heavy is because we have got a big one but not as big as the Samsung Galaxy M51. It has a battery capacity of 5,000mAh, and it has also 15W of high-voltage power. Actually, the moment I unboxed it I charged it fully first before using it in the real world.

Think it is my third day using Samsung Galaxy A12. During those three days, I made a gaming review on it, camera test, we've made a B-roll, a little bit of social media. I still have about 35% battery life left. Imagine it guys, 5,000mAh. It really is a powerful amount of battery for a budget device. I think it's probably because it's only 720p resolution on this smartphone. Currently I haven't tested the charging. The 15W is slow for a smartphone that has a battery capacity of 5,000 mAh. We are not merely guessing guys, but most of the smartphones which have 5,000mAh battery capacity. I've reviewed in the past few months and most likely it will take you two hours or more before you charge it 100%. But I don't see it as a problem as long as the battery capacity is large.

Again, it is okay to have a large battery capacity than a small battery capacity with fast charging. We are only charging before we sleep, so that it will not matter if your device is charging or not fast, because it most likely is already fully charged when you wake up. This is my opinion only when it comes to budget and midrange devices. Anyway, that is it for our Samsung Galaxy A12 Unboxing and quick review. It's still worth for me, because it will still be able to get the 128GB internal storage. The only problem is that you won't get the same performance as I have had on this one in terms of multitasking, because this will be a different feeling for a smartphone with 4GB RAM compared to the 6GB RAM. Probably the only cons I see here are the display.

Because the display is one of the most important aspects of a smartphone. It is for today's video guys. It's now getting loud because there is construction going on in front of our studio. Mary, it's your tech girl, and see you in my next video..
