The Desire 12+ 32 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The Desire 12+ 32 GB is almost a model.A size of 6.0 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
No protection on the screen of this Desire 12+ 32 GB.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
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.There is only 2965 mAh, which is low for normal use.Keep your charger handy.
In conclusion on battery charging, HTC has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.An 6.0 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
For the audio part, HTC wanted to do well.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
HTC’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
What came out of our tests is that the Desire 12+ 32 GB is low in power.The Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 (14 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.You will only have 32 GB for your videos and music.In fact, for some passionate users, HTC has provided an extra space to add more.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.The power of 2965 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Generally speaking, HTC has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
This Desire 12+ 32 GB has a photo resolution of 13 Mp, identical to its competitors.You can be sure to make good quality photos and videos.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.This makes it easier for you to retouch the photo.The sensor of this Desire 12+ 32 GB is of good quality and will facilitate photo retouching.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The Desire 12+ 32 GB – in a nutshell
Following our tests, we see that this Desire 12+ 32 GB is not good for all cases.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
