HTC Desire 12 Plus Smartphone Review


Tablet or smartphone? If you cannot decide which category the HTC Desire 12 Plus falls into, consider it a phablet. The Desire 12 Plus has a 6.0-inch display, a fingerprint sensor, runs Android 8.0 and it is a dual-SIM device. Find out how the HTC...

support for up to 2 TB microSD cards ; large 18:9 aspect ratio display ; dual-SIM and LTE support for either SIM card

the back case is too smooth and is prone to fingerprints ; weak battery life ; reflective and flickering display with a high PWM value

The greatest strength of the HTC Desire 12 Plus is its flexibility. The ample 32 GB of internal storage can be expanded with up to 2 TB microSD cards. The device even supports two nano-SIMs, although this comes at the cost of using a microSD card.The...

HTC Desire 12 Plus


A decent budget phone – but fails to outperform rivals

Attractive design ; Reasonable performance ; Responsive fingerprint sensor

Screen only 720p ; Camera isn't great ; No NFC

The HTC Desire 12 Plus is a perfectly decent £200 smartphone, but its key rivals (particularly the Moto G6) manage to match or better it in almost every way.

HTC Desire 12+ review: HTC’s budget phone misses the mark


The HTC Desire 12+ looks fantastic but fundamentally fails to stand out in a crowded market

Captivating design ; 18:9 display ; Competent camera

No fast charging capabilities ; Mushy physical buttons ; HD+ only display

It’s tough, then, to justify recommending or being overly positive about the HTC Desire 12+. Sure, it might look gorgeous from afar but that’s honestly the only real thing going for it. Until HTC drops its price, there’s no reason to buy it over its...

Superb phone


I have been a Samsung owner for as long as I can remember but I decided it was time to change and I am glad I did. This phone is brilliant and simple to use. The camera is amazing and with the snapdragon processor it is so fast. Love it
