Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review

Infinix is more focusing on affordable smartphones, they haven’t launched any good mid-budget smartphones in India. Now, to continue that line-up, Infinix has launched Infinix Note 12 Turbo smartphone in India.

The Infinix Turbo series will replace the Infinix S series which means, we won’t get Infinix Note 12s.

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo is priced at Rs 14,999 for 8GB of Ram and 128GBs storage in India, it comes with Force Black, Snowfall, and Sapphire Blue color options and it will be available from 28th May 2022 via Flipkart at noon.

Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review

Yes, Infinix Note 12 Turbo is worth buying but it’s not for everything because the phone doesn’t have the good cameras, no secondary noise-cancellation microphone, complicated OS, or no 5G support but it does have a powerful MediaTek Helio G96 processor and AMOLED display, in short, first decide what you want and then make any decision.

There is not a huge difference between Infinix Note 11s and Note 12 Turbo except for the AMOLED display, Note 11s had the 120hz LCD display while Note 12 Turbo has the 60Hz AMOLED Display.

In short, if you’re okay with LCD display then I would highly recommend you to go with Infinix Note 11s (review) because it’s available at only Rs 12,499 while Note 12 Turbo is available at Rs 14999.

Display

Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review Image05

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo comes with a 6.70-inches 60Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels with an 85.5 percent Screen-to-body ratio and 1000 nits of pick brightness.

I just love that Infinix went with an AMOLED panel rather than a 120hz LCD but, I would have loved more if they had added an in-display fingerprint sensor rather than the sid-mounted.

By the way, this is the first Infinix smartphone that comes with Widevine L1 support which means, you will be able to stream FHD+ contact on OTT platforms.

The front side is protected with Gorilla Glass 3 while the rear and back are made out of plastic. Infinix has changed their design this time, so do let me know what you think about that back-side design because the device has a huge waterdrop display on the front.

I don’t get why, mobile brands are giving waterdrop notch in 2022, it’s 2019 all over again which is not a good thing.

By the way, if you love to watch movies or even Youtube Videos on a smartphone then you will love the Infinix Note 12 Turbo because it has a pick brightness of 1000 nits which means, there won’t be any kind of issue while using the smartphone outdoors.

Overall, for the price of Rs 14999, you can’t complain much about the display, it’s a great AMOLED display.

Performance

Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review Image09

We have seen MediaTek Helio G96 on a few smartphones and almost all the phones are working fine.

Also, MediaTek helio G96 is a gaming processor, so yes, if you’re looking for a gaming smartphone at a budget price then this could be a good option.

We all know that MediaTek Helio G96 doesn’t support a 5G network which means, you’re stuck with 4G.

Things get a little bit messy when it comes to UI.

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo is running on XOS 10.6 based on Android 12, Infinix didn’t say anything to update the future update yet.

I’m not a big fan of custom UI, I prefer stock UI or any other UI.

Now, if you’re okay with custom UI then you will be more than happy with XOS because the UI has all the features that most of the other custom UI have.

Also, like any other custom UI, there will be some ads here and there, just like MIUI and RealMe UI.

Other than that, you won’t face any kind of problem while using the smartphone.

Overall, there won’t be any kind of problem while playing games or using smartphones in day-to-day life.

Cameras

Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review Image01

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo comes with a 48MP primary sensor, 2MP depth sensor, and 2MP AI sensor while there is a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. Both the Rear and front cameras can shoot videos at [email protected] and [email protected]

Now, let’s just forget that 2MP+2MP cameras, those sensors are added for showcase only, they won’t provide any kind of value what’s so ever.

Coming to 48MP primary sensor,

This sensor takes good images when there is good light or taking images under the sunlight but when it comes to low light, the sensor suffers a lot, even night mode doesn’t help much.

At night, there will be lots of noise in images while it tries to over-expose the images and in between that, it loses details.

Again, just like any other affordable smartphone, the images will be a bit saturated.

By the way, the phone doesn’t have OIS support, so the videos won’t come out a stable.

Talking about that 16MP selfie shooter,

We have seen that when the smartphone is priced below Rs 15000 then most of the mobile brand doesn’t work on front cameras, they just whiten the sensor and that’s it.

What I’m saying is, that the selfie will come out a bit white which means, there is no need to use any kind of filter, the sensor will take care of everything.

Also, when you’re taking videos from the front cameras, the video won’t come out well, there is some issue with the dynamic range and I don’t think Infinix will solve it because the same issue is still, present on Infinix Note 11 Series.

Overall, Infinix Note 12 Turbo has decent cameras, so if you’re buying this smartphone for cameras then don’t because you will be disappointed.

Here, are the Camera samples of Infinix Note 12 Turbo…

Audio Quality

Infinix Note 12 Turbo Review Image03

Just like any other Infinix smartphone, this too doesn’t have a secondary noise cancellation microphone which is not good for calling.

Also, there is no carrier aggregation too.

The phone does have stereo speakers but they can’t be called stereo because the upper side of the speaker is not that loud, you will only hear sound from the bottom speaker.

Technically, the phone has stereo speakers but in reality, it’s just one good speaker.

Battery Life

The Infinix Note 12 Turbo has a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.

The device will last for a day and a half but it also depends on how you use the smartphone.

If you will play games for five to six hours then you will have to charge the device two times but if you’re a casual user then the device can also last for more than a day.

    Considering the fact that it is within the 15k price point, this does not seem like a bad choice for mobile gamers since it comes with a powerful Mediatek Helio G96 chipset support.
