Is it Worth Buying Samsung Galaxy A12?
After the launch of Galaxy F62, Samsung is back with another affordable smartphone but unlike Galaxy F62, the newly launched Galaxy A12 doesn’t have what users are looking for but it does have a Samsung brand name that could attract some people.
Samsung Galaxy A12 Price in India
Samsung Galaxy A12 price in India starts from Rs 12,999 for 4GB of Ram and 64GB storage while 4GB of Ram and 128GB variant is priced at Rs 13,999. The phone is available in Black, White, Blue colour options and it can be bought from the Amazon India website.

Is it Worth Buying Samsung Galaxy A12?
No, Samsung Galaxy A12 is not worth buying because it’s an overpriced smartphone. Samsung is charging way more money for just brand name, there are tons of other phones available at a lower price with better specifications, so there is no need to spend a single penny to buy Galaxy A12. In short, Galaxy A12 doesn’t justify the Rs 12,999 price tag.
I can go on and on but that’s just a waste of time, so if your budget is around Rs 10,000 then just go with POCO M3.

Talking about Samsung Galaxy A12,
The phone comes with a 48MP quad-camera setup featuring a 5MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. Now, likewise, those 2MP+2MP sensors are just for marketing and 5MP ultra-wide doesn’t have the best image quality.
Overall, at 13k, Galaxy A12 doesn’t have the best camera setup. Still, if you want Samsung branded phone then I think, this is the only option for you and if you want a non-Chinese smartphone then take look at the newly launched Nokia 5.4.

It also has a 5,000 mAh battery with 15W charging support. The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio P35 Processor, built on 12nm technology and running on OneUI 2.5-based on Android 10.
There are tons of phones available with MediaTek Helio G80, 80, 95 and even with Snapdragon 665, 712. So tell me, why do you want to buy a phone with a MediaTek Helio P35 processor at 13k?
By the way, the phone does have a dedicated microSD card slot and 3.5mm audio jack too. Now, the phone has an HD+ display that means, there is no support for wide vine L1.
It’s better to save three thousand and go with POCO M3 rather than spending 3k on Samsung Galaxy A12.

I don’t think this is true because I have a Samsung galaxy A12 it is a great phone it works perfectly fine and it is fast charging, food quality photos and is just overall a good phone
you can say from the way he is writing that he has a HUGE hate boner for samsung, so biased its so funny.
hey, Mustafa, I don’t hate Samsung but when it comes to a budget smartphone, they charge a bit extra. If we have better phones at the same price then there is no need to pay extra money for just Samsung Logo.
I don’t agree with you on the Samsung galaxy a12 it’s been my best phone
The A12 is the biggest piece of shit I have ever used.
What most reviewers fail to understand is the Samsung ecosystem including all the apps that Samsung mobiles are loaded. Reviews tend to point out specs only, which are important, but not more than the software of the phone.
In that terms A12 is an excellent phone and no Chinese phone in that range can touch.
I bought one on black Friday and I hate it! It often acts like someone has hacked it and starts opening and closing apps and I have no control over it. I’m so disappointed that I wasted my money on this piece of crap phone.
the a12 has the whackiest selfie cam i have seen in a smartphone,,i wish i would have read this earlier,,the m3 is overall a better phone hardwarewise and am all about hardware coz i game alot,i wish i read this earlier
Wow…good to see unbiased journalism still exists (sarc)
nope i beg to differ i have been using the samsung a12 for the past 3-4 months and honestly its good smartphone and the camera picture quality is almost the same as an iphone x but as for video quality its a no but overall for gaming is good and does not freeze so its a good phonefrom my experience
I bet this guy is an Iphone fan cause i had my Sansung A12 for a while now and it can do all the things that i wish on a cellphone. Why doesn’t he tell how overpriced Iphones are cause here in NY, for a Iphone 13 Mini, The smallest version, They are charging 800$! With that money i can buy a whole computer and an smartphone like an A12. The really overpriced are Iphones, Those are the really waste of money to get cause, Why waste your money on a phone just because of it camera?
Come on, this is common sense, I bet that my A12 can do more things than an iphone, Plus, I feel like androids have more customization than Iphones, they are cheaper and almost the same quality like Overpriced Iphones.
The Galaxy A12 is about as affordable as you will get here in the states full price still under $250.00 USD, there are bots that say otherwise on this and that which not true
I thought like you, and I got POCO M3. but after 9 months, it turned off and never turned on again.
No one could help, I tried every method.
Yes, Xiaomi on paper is good. but in action, no!
Samsung is better and the UI is what I pay for.
I hate having a Galaxy A12, It’s the worst phone you could ever buy from Samsung. Once you often use the phone and download things, the phone is often slow and unable to do any more actions. It is so slow that it is even slower than my old Samsung Tab A tablet-like what? The crappiest phone I ever brought, not recommended.
Maybe in india this phone is a bad deal. I live in canada and this phone costs around $180. And so far, this phone has been great!
