Samsung Galaxy A12 in 2022: Is it worth buying in Kuwait?
This year is 2022, and we have already reviewed three high-end Samsung S22 mobile phones. At the other end of the spectrum is the Galaxy A12. This is a rudimentary model designed to provide a budget-friendly Samsung experience.
Launched late in 2020 and launched in January 2021, the Galaxy A12 is not Samsung’s most affordable phone to sell. The Galaxy M02 has won this title.
Samsung’s naming in the lower layers is a bit abnormal and can be confused between the A series and the M series, but the A12 is just below the M12 and above the M02.
Not all of these models are available worldwide, but it is available in Kuwait and that’s great.
The Galaxy A12 is powered by a 5,000mAh battery, and that’s plenty of battery for an entry-level 12 nm chip set and 720p display, albeit a 6.5-inch screen.
We’re expecting solid numbers for battery life.
- Excellent battery life.
- A relatively capable, ultra-wide-angle camera setting is not common in the price range.
- The back side has an excellent texture, the plastic that feels good.
- Low power chip set.
- Slow loading.
- No night mode, no video stabilisation.
1. WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX
- The Phone itself.
- Pretty long USB C Cable.
- 15W power brick.
- User Manual and paper works.
The Galaxy A12 comes in a regular box with a regular cardboard box inside a case with the shape of a printed phone. All you get are a few essentials: a 15W adapter and a USB-C cable.
- Phone Weigh at 205g
- The phone’s dimensions are 164 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm
- USB-C Port for charging
The Galaxy A12 is mainly made of plastic, which is made of very beautiful and touchable plastic. It’s not quite the back panel and frame type – there is no open “frame”. Rather, it’s a uni-body construction, with the back cover also wrapping around the perimeter of the phone.
The back is split three to one with a large bodice treated with a diagonally striped texture. We wouldn’t say it improves grip, but it’s not detrimental either. Still, it’s pleasing to the eye and it’s a win.
In the lower quarter, the Samsung logo is flanked by some legal brands, the latter in a fortunately less contrasting print.
Back at the top, there is an island with four cameras that weren’t enough for a flash, which was placed under the camera group.
The Infinity-V display is located on the front, with a small notch at the top that makes room for the selfie camera. An almost invisible slot above is the sound outlet of the earphones.
There is a USB-C port on the bottom of the Galaxy A12. Fortunately, microUSB has been replaced in all Samsung models except for the cheapest A02 and M02.
There are also other items that fall into this area: a 3.5mm headphone jack, speakers, and a main microphone.
- The size of the display is a 6.5-inch PLS IPS.
- The pixel density is around ~270ppi (720 x 1600 pixels)
- The screen ratio is 20:9 (~82.1% screen-to-body ratio)
The Galaxy A12 is still one of the few phones in Samsung’s lineup that doesn’t use an OLED display. It’s a PLS panel, or Samsung’s version of IPS LCD.
At 6.5 inches diagonally, it’s far from small, so if you’re looking for a screen, the A12 delivers.
The 1600 x 720 pixels resolution is a little flimsy at this size — the pixel density is 270 pixels per inch, but unless you’re purposely looking for good text up close, you should be fine.
The Galaxy A12 outputs just under 400 nits when manually turning on the slider. This phone doesn’t have a dedicated ambient light sensor, but it does read from the selfie camera for adaptive lighting purposes, and with that button enabled we got a slight boost to 472 nits.
- This Phone comes with an Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 (12nm) chip inside it.
- Talking about the core: 4Nos of 2.35 GHz Cortex-A53 and 4Nos of 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 at 12nm process
- 2/3/4/6 GB of RAM
- The storage available options are: 32, 64, and 128 GB
Inside the Galaxy A12 is a modest Mediatek Helio P35 chipset. The octa-core CPU uses only Cortex-A53 cores, four of which are clocked up to 2.35 GHz, the other four – with a maximum of 1.8 GHz.
It is better than the smaller Galaxy, which with a Snapdragon 450 equipped like the A02s / M02s can reach a limit of 1.8 GHz across all 8 cores.
The Galaxy A12 is available in various RAM/storage configurations with a wide range from 3GB/32GB to 6GB/128GB. Our review unit is a 4GB/128GB version.
Even with regular use, we experienced the occasional hiccup.
Ultimately, if you’re looking for high performance or better protection going forward, the Galaxy A12 may not be a good choice.
5. BATTERY LIFE
- It has a 5000 mAh capacity battery.
- Fast charging up to 15W
The Galaxy A12 is powered by a 5,000mAh battery. This is sufficient capacity for relatively small hardware. In fact, that combination makes for some pretty respectable stamina stats.
The A12 was able to answer voice calls for over 31 hours and had low standby power.
Not sure what charging standard the phone supports, it only maximises the 15W adapter when the screen is on. It’s hovering around the 11W mark with the screen off.
- Wide camera lens: 48 MP, f/2.0, 26mm, AF
- Ultra-wide camera lens: 5 MP, f/2.2, 123˚
- Macro lens: 2 MP, f/2.4
- Depth lens: 2 MP, f/2.4
The camera app from A12 is the same as other Samsung. That’s good because it’s easy to use and easy. The base is normal. Both for vertical swipes also switch between the cameras on the front and back.
The sunlight photos of the main camera of Galaxy A12 sharp and capture relatively high high quality details while minimising noise. The dynamic range is very wide, especially for this calliper phone. We prefer the pop colours, but we may be limited to the usual animated Samsung output – we can say the A12 colours are very accurate in their favour.
There’s no telephoto lens on the A12, and Samsung won’t fool you with zoom levels right in the viewfinder, as it can’t back up with hardware.
The 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera miraculously doesn’t produce great images – they’re quite noisy and the 5-megapixel camera isn’t great for a 123-degree field of view, so detail is limited . This camera can capture a wide dynamic range and the extreme view is welcome.
The A12’s low-light performance isn’t impressive. Dynamic range is rather narrow on the main camera at high ISOs, pronounced in highlights blown around light sources but equally evident in dark shadows. The graphics are quite noisy, although detailed enough for the hardware. The colour saturation is also preserved quite well.
The Ultra-Wide fights even more in the dark. It can’t expose bright enough in dark scenes, but even with more light it still doesn’t do a good job. There is no Night Mode in any of the cameras on the Galaxy A12.
On the other hand, the A12’s selfie camera isn’t too bad. The 8-megapixel sensor delivers excellent detail in bright light and doesn’t completely fade in the dark indoors. Overall it is a bit over-saturated and I like to warm up my skin tone, but it is more conservative with galaxy pop colours.
- 3.5mm headphone jack is present.
The Galaxy A12 has a speaker at the bottom. It’s one of the quietest phones in its class and scored “below average” in volume.
It lacks bass and the treble response is muted, so it’s not great in terms of quality either.
At maximum volume, there is no big distortion, so that’s great.
The Galaxy A12 unit is equipped with Android 10 with Samsung One UI 2.5 user interface. It’s a bit strange that Android 11, A12 doesn’t have One UI 3.0 UI yet, but I hope it gets updated eventually.
Samsung has a very bad reputation on updating their low end devices to latest Android versions. I doubt how long they will support this device.
If you are on a limited budget, it is really important what the brand is on the back of your phone. If you select one of the competitors, you will get an excellent phone.
You can also save some money. However, if you must get your hands on the Galaxy, the A12 is a fair compromise. However, that wouldn’t be our best option for the money.
Our recommended Phones, instead of buying Samsung A12 in Kuwait: –
- Redmi Note 9
- Poco M3
- Realme 7
- Moto G9 Power
10. FINAL VERDICT
Samsung is often struggling to compete with the brand-oriented brand in the lower market, which is in A12 here. It is not a bad phone, there is excellent endurance, you get a decent picture and looks good in this process. In addition, Samsung and the brand may be more attractive than the actual feature.
But if Band doesn’t matter to you then you can get another phone which has better features and performance than Samsung A12.
