Android version and market relevance

HTC Desire 12s was announced by the company HTC in December 2018 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones HTC Desire. HTC Desire 12s works on Android 8.1 Oreo, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in HTC Desire 12s implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2018” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like HTC Desire 12s — this is the price segment page “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. HTC Desire 12s received IPS LCD-screen measuring 5.7 inches. This is a good average among smartphones, with this size it is still convenient to hold in your hands and much more information is placed on the screen. It′s more pleasant to watch movies or TV shows, play games and chat in chats.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The thickness of the smartphone HTC Desire 12s is 8.3 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 075 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

On the back of the smartphone is a good main camera with one module: 13 MP with a regular lens. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera has one lens: 13 MP with a regular lens, which is very good. And to appreciate the quality of this camera, look at examples of photos and videos taken with it.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in HTC Desire 12s is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 435. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 3 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 4 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 32/64 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.
