The price range that Samsung is playing in is risky as there are several contenders available in the segment. Some of the options are the Redmi Note 10, the Poco M3, among others. Despite the competitors being so strong, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer doesn’t fear and takes a risk with the Galaxy M12 that packs several powerful features. Some of these features include a massive 6000mAh battery, fast charging support in the box, quad rear cameras, among others.

Samsung Galaxy M12 first impressions

We have the Samsung phone in the house for review, which will be published later next week, but what we can share right now is our initial impressions.

Samsung Galaxy M12 initial thoughts

– The Samsung Galaxy M12 offers a good build quality despite offering a polycarbonate back, which is great. The frames are also made of plastic.

– The smartphone feels heavy in the hands and that’s possibly due to the massive 6000mAh battery that it packs. The phone could have been better balanced, in my opinion. It’s also difficult to use the Galaxy M12 in one hand, unlike the competitors such as the Redmi Note 10 and the Poco M3.

– The Galaxy M12 sports a clean design, which is rare to find in this price range. The quad cameras are placed inside a square module at the extreme left of the rear panel. The fingerprint sensor shifts to the side and is easily reachable. The sensor also unlocks the phone quickly.

– As far as the screen is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy M12 sports a 6.5-inch LCD Infinity-O display that offers 90Hz screen-refresh rate, which is great given its competitors still stick to standard 60hz refresh rate. In real life, the LCD panel looks dull and offers just a decent viewing experience, not great.

– We are yet to extensively test the phone to understand how it performs through the day. On paper, the Samsung Galaxy M12 is powered by Exynos 850 SoC paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. On the software front, the phone runs on One UI 3.1 based on Android 11.

– With the few shots we have clicked with the Samsung phone, we can say that the phone gets details just about right, which is great for the price it comes for. It packs a 48-megapixel primary sensor paired with 5-megapixel depth sensor, 8-megapixel ultra wide and 2-megapixel macro lens. On the front, the phone offers an 8-megapixel front camera.

– Battery is one of the best bits of the Samsung Galaxy M12. It packs a 6000mAh battery paired with 15W fast charging support in the box.
