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 Plus review


A bargain phone with style

Polished design ; Crisp and clear display ; Snappy performance

Slow camera ; No fast-charging ; Rivals offer more features

The HTC Desire 12 Plus is a decent budget pick for those not too fussed about the latest and greatest. It combines sleek looks, big screen and a capable camera in a wieldy package that punches well above its weight. But competition is plenty in the...

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...

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
