The Desire 12+ 32 GB, enough for internet use?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
Desire 12+ 32 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (6.0 inches) compared to other smartphones.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Important when you’re away from home.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This will even be possible with competing operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this Desire 12+ 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 2965 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.Keep your charger handy.
And since HTC did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Desire 12+ 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
On the audio side, HTC wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The HTC smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
In the end, we found that the power of this Desire 12+ 32 GB is below its competitors.Its Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 (14 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 32 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why HTC has left a free slot for a memory card.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its 2965 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.HTC is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by HTC.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The 13 Mp resolution of this model is interesting.In fact, it’s enough to make some nice pictures or a few holiday movies.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
Regarding selfies, the technology onboard is equivalent to what you find elsewhere.This will allow you to retouch your photos.This Desire 12+ 32 GB is really easy to access for the retouching part of the images.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
