What should I look for in a Samsung A12 Case?

The sort of phone case you wish to buy is one of the first essential selections you must make. We're delighted to say that you now have a plethora of choices. Here's a short rundown of what's going on:

In such thin cases, they give up safety for beauty and simplicity. As a result, they add little to the phone's overall size, but they don't provide anything in drop protection or other functionality.

Hybrid cases: These are the "standard" cases that you see at most stores, and they come in a wide range of designs. These are the Samsung A12 Case that most people should purchase.

Rugged cases are thick and hefty, and they provide maximum Protection from drops at the sacrifice of aesthetics. They frequently come with additions such as kickstands and waterproofing.

Clear cases: Clear cases are transparent and simple, allowing you to show off your phone's design while keeping it safe from drops. Just bear in mind that they might be tough to maintain.

Wallet cases: Wallet cases protect your phone while allowing you to store cards, IDs, or cash. Aside from cardholder cases, folio-style covers with a cover to protect your screen are also available.

Magnetic cases are made to function with magnetic attachments, such as Apple's MagSafe system. Unfortunately, there aren't many alternatives, and they're very specialized, but they can open up some intriguing possibilities.

Cases with a built-in battery pack are fantastic for camping or extended journeys, but they're too large for regular usage. As a result, they frequently include reverse-wireless charging for other gadgets.

Most flagship phones nowadays have some level of water protection, but none of them can withstand saltwater. Some relatively uncommon and specialized circumstances exist to fill that void.

Skins: Skins aren't quite cases, but they serve a similar purpose. They provide very little Protection because they adhere to your phone using adhesive, much like a sticker.

The majority of people choose thin and hybrid casings. 

They provide a nice balance of Protection and elegance, generally at a reasonable price. Plus, with so many different styles and colors (including clear covers), you're likely to find one that matches your personality. You may also personalize the Samsung A12 Case with text or other graphics with some companies.

If you want your Samsung A12 Case to be more functional, you have many more options. Wallets and magnetic cases are valid for regular use, and more specialized choices like battery cases are helpful in specific scenarios. If you operate in the field (or are just a little clumsy), rugged cases often offer military-grade Protection, avoiding severe damage from falls as high as 20 feet.

What materials are used to make Samsung A12 Case?

Polymers such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), polycarbonate (PC), and silicone are commonly used in Samsung A12 Case. However, TPU is the most prevalent material since it provides the best weight, flexibility, and durability blend.

To add bumpers and other protective features to a case, more rigid polymers like PC are frequently used in combination with TPU. These cases also come in various designs, including transparent finishes and a variety of colors.

It is flexible, durable, and has a beautiful soft rubbery texture. It is less likely to crack than TPU or PC because it is usually thinner and lighter. They also come in various colors, but they are more challenging to clean because of their rubbery feel.

Phone covers are made of TPU, PC, silicone, bioplastics, and high-end materials like leather and wood.

Leather is occasionally used in samsung a12 case, but only as part of a hybrid design. This indicates the case's inner is TPU, with a thin layer of leather on the outside. These casings are attractive and develop a patina with time, but the thin leather layer is susceptible to harm. Keep this in mind before you make a purchase.

More environmentally friendly materials, such as biodegradable plastic and even wood, have been employed in some cases. These are less resistant to wear and tear than polymers and do not last as long. However, most users will replace their phones every few years, and when they do, that plastic cover will be discarded. This is a strategy to reduce your environmental impact.

What you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy A12

Because of its MediaTek Helio MT6765 SoC usage, the Galaxy A12 Case differs from prior Samsung devices we've examined. Previously, Samsung's phones, from the most costly to the most affordable, featured either a Qualcomm Snapdragon engine or one of the company's own Exynos CPUs.

On paper, it appears to be adequate. This is an octa-core chipset with four 2.3GHz cores and four 1.6GHz cores. This is backed up by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage in our model. However, foreign variants with 3-or 6-GB of RAM and 32-or 128GB of storage are also available. While we would recommend at least 4GB of RAM in 2021, storage space isn't an issue because the Galaxy A12 supports microSD cards up to 1TB in capacity.

It also features four cameras on the rear, neatly organized into a square hump. The primary camera is a 48MP, f/2.0 sensor with a 5MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide lens and two 2MP, f/2.4 sensors—one for depth detection and the other for super-close-up macro images—supporting it.

The Samsung Galaxy A12's price and competition

All of this is available for a modest £169, which isn't terrible at all – but before you get too excited, keep in mind that the sub-£200 price bracket has become increasingly crowded in recent years, with some fantastic devices.

Most recently, there's the Moto G9 Power, a powerful phone with a massive 6,000mAh battery, which produced just under 27 hours of endurance on a single charge in our video rundown test, as the name implies but doesn't explicitly state. Unfortunately, it costs £180 to buy. The Nokia 5.3, however, has a quad camera and a surprisingly quick performance that belies its £150 price tag.

There are also a few reasonably priced Chinese phones available. For instance, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T, which is brand new and filled with features, costs £229, while the Realme 7 costs £169. 

Even better, there's the excellent Xiaomi Poco X3, which, with its unrivaled performance and 120Hz screen for less than £200, has a terrible habit of outperforming all other budget alternatives. The design

The Samsung Galaxy A12 Case

While there are a few telltale clues that the Galaxy A12 isn't a Samsung flagship, it does have a premium appearance. The phone's 6.5-inch screen dominates the front, with bezels that are only a few millimeters thick all the way around and double in size around the chin. The front-facing camera is housed in a shallow notchlette at the top, which is obtrusive but no more so than any other option until the promised in-screen camera technology is delivered.

When you turn it over, it's clear that it's all plastic, but it's the most convincing faux-metal-looking plastic I've ever seen. There's a two-tone approach on the rear with a flat matte finish on the bottom fifth and a diagonal line pattern on the top four-fifths, giving it a nice, mildly corrugated look and feel. 

The quad-camera hump in the upper left corner appears to be well-designed, although it protrudes slightly from the handset, preventing the phone from lying flat on its back. The power button on the right-hand side has a fingerprint scanner, which is my preferred location for it.

 The Galaxy A12 also offers a variety of consumer-friendly features that aren't often available on expensive phones. It includes a 3.5mm headphone jack and enables microSD expansion up to 1TB, unlike any iPhone or the latest Galaxy S21. Wireless charging and IP-certified waterproofing aren't included, but you can't have everything for this cheap.

The Samsung Galaxy A12's display

The Samsung Galaxy A12 has a 6.5-inch PLS display (essentially Samsung's IPS-like panel) with 720 x 1,600 pixels and 264 pixels per inch. Yet, even with the massive display, it looks wonderfully sharp in day-to-day use, even if it falls short of the Full HD experiences available for the price.

The colorimeter reveals that it's a reliable, albeit ordinary, panel. Its color accuracy is a touch off, with an sRGB color gamut coverage of 88 percent from a gamut volume of 95.7 percent, and the peak brightness of 439cd/m2 isn't exactly dazzling. Even yet, everything is crisp enough with a contrast ratio of 1,740:1.

It's far from a poor display, comparable to the Moto G9 Power and Nokia 5.3. However, it falls short of the excellent standards set by the Poco X3 NFC.

The Samsung Galaxy A12's performance

If the mention of a MediaTek CPU in the introduction made your stomach turn, you were right to be wary. While MediaTek CPUs have progressed significantly in recent years (the G95 processor in the Realme 7 and the Density 800U chips in the Redmi Note 9T are both impressive), the Helio P35 used here isn't exactly a winner.

The phone feels slow right out of the box, with stuttery animations and apps that take a few seconds to launch. It does catch up with itself after a while, but despite the comparatively ample 4GB of RAM, it's not perfect for multitasking.

The benchmarks corroborate these initial feelings. As you can see in the graph below, it performs far worse than all of the competitors I mentioned before, but it's awful compared to the three Chinese-branded phones, two of which employ a better MediaTek processor.

In GFXBench graphics testing, the Samsung Galaxy A12 managed only 19 frames per second in native 720p and 12 frames per second when exported to 1080p. Given that the Realme 7 and Poco X3 NFC both tend to nearly four times the frames at that resolution, I believe we can safely conclude that this is not good enough for the price. GFXBench refused to run on the Redmi Note 9T, although considering its Geekbench five results, it would be astonishing if it performed worse.

However, the hardware does excel in one area: efficiency, with the 5,000mAh battery lasting a remarkable 25 hours and 58 minutes in our looping movie battery test. It's unusual; to give

credit where credit is due is remarkable. It takes under an hour less than the Moto G9 Power, a phone that not only has a 1,000 mAh larger battery capacity but is known for its long battery life. The Samsung Galaxy A12 is unlikely to leave you without a charge.

The Galaxy A12 ships with Android 10 out of the box, but it's a version of Android with Samsung's One UI layered on top. I'm OK with One UI, but this vision does raise some eyebrows by attempting to persuade you to install a slew of "suggested applications," like Candy Crush Saga when you initially set it up. Camera

The Samsung Galaxy A12

I've been evaluating phones long enough to recall when three lenses on the Huawei P20 Pro seemed excessive. Even low-cost phones are getting into the act these days. Except for the Moto G9 Power, which has "just" three cameras on the back, the Samsung Galaxy A12 has four cameras on the rear, which aligns it with all of the phones I've compared it against.

I don't believe I'm alone in preferring phones like the Pixel 4a that has just one great camera rather than trying to keep up with the Joneses with new periphery lenses. The Samsung Galaxy A12, on the other hand, boasts four cameras: a 48MP (f/2.0) primary camera, a 5MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide lens, and two 2MP (f/2.4) depth-sensing and macro cameras.

The Galaxy A12's photography is a mixed bag, as one might expect given the small aperture and low entry price. However, the images are fairly nice in solid light, with solid composition and enough detail to be useful. Yes, investing more money will offer you better results, but the images are clear enough to share, and you may obtain terrific results in the appropriate situations.

Individual bricks on the church's roof may be seen even when zoomed in, but the image becomes a little hazy.

However, the Galaxy A12 suffers from the same issue that many inexpensive phones do, which I suppose is compounded by the MediaTek processor's low performance. It's what I jokingly refer to as "the cat problem":

The interval between hitting the shutter button and the image being captured means that anything that moves quickly—think birds, infants, cats, or dogs—will nearly always be a fuzzy mess when the phone finishes recording the image. It's in plenty.

You shouldn't anticipate compositional miracles as soon as the light levels drop. As these images of my yard at sunset demonstrate, image quality suffers as the light fades, with plenty of noise and blur replacing the fine clarity of the daytime photographs. This is a problem that all phone cameras confront, and the Samsung Galaxy A12 is far from the worst offender.

The verdict on the Samsung Galaxy A12

In the end, it's difficult not to consider Samsung's Galaxy A12 a flop. Yes, it has excellent battery life, and I genuinely hope that the firm incorporates the two-tone design into future devices, but even at £169, it falls short.

Much of this is due to other manufacturers' incredible work on a shoestring budget, but Samsung's entry-level devices have previously held their own. It's difficult not to blame the MediaTek Helio MT6765 totally for the letdown. Exynos and Qualcomm phones have never seemed so slow.

What should you get in its place? While all of the alternatives listed in the "pricing and competition" section are better, if you have £199 to spare, I recommend the Poco X3 NFC. If you can't, you should either spend £169 on a Realme 7 or save £19 and get a Nokia 5.3 instead.
