HTC U12 Life review: Flagship features for £299? | Trusted Reviews

 

HTC U12 Life review: Has HTC turned a corner with its new budget offerings? The U12 Life, with its Pixel-like design and great battery life may suggest so.

Strong battery life ; Big, bright balanced screen ; No glaring weaknesses

Middling performance ; Underwhelming camera ; HTC Sense feels dated

A phone that holds more modest expectations compared to its flagship sibling, but at least it meets them.

HTC U12 Life initial review: One seriously shiny mid-range phone

 

The sub-£300 mid-ranger brings a 6in screen, dual cameras and bigger battery capacity compared to its predecessor. Is it the affordable phone to buy?

HTC U12 Life review

 

Is there life in this phone?

Unusual design ; Big screen ; Reasonable price

Glass body feels more plastic ; Slow, unrefined HDR mode ; App loads slightly slower than rivals

It's not the very best phone at the price, but with its big screen and unusual finish the HTC U12 Life offers a useful alternative to the glut of glass-backed phones.

HTC U12 Life review: HTC’s best mid-tier smartphone?

 

HTC tackles the mid-tier yet again, and the U12 Life might be HTC's best-priced smartphone yet

Stunning dual-finish design ; Long-lasting battery

Disappointing camera ; Blinkfeed is rubbish

The Xiaomi Pocophone F1’s dominance remains unscathed, then, leaving it my current recommendation in this price range.

HTC U12 Life

 

HTC has updated is mid-range phone with 3D Ultra Stripes, while ditching Android One and Edge Sense. It's cheaper price makes it an attractive mid-range phone.

HTC U12 Life Smartphone Review
