Design and Display:

Realme 12

  • Display: Floating your screen with vibrant visuals, the 6.72-inch IPS LCD panel with 1080 by 2400 pixels of resolution and 120Hz of refresh rate display makes scrolling smooth. Hitting a high brightness of 950 nits, the phone for sure does an excellent job of letting you see even under the brightest lighting. On the bright side, the display is pretty good for the price, but some might point out that the lack of inky blacks and truly vibrant colors that come with an AMOLED panel could annoy the eyeballs.
  • Design: It has an ergonomic design and is styled to give a minimalist profile, which makes it nice for everyday wear, in addition to durability. It bolsters the IP54 dust and splash protection.

Realme 12+ 5G:

  • Display: The 6.67-inch AMOLED panel delivers HDR10+ for an effective vision experience with clear transitions at 120Hz, with a maximum light peaking to 2000 nits. This is by far a great improvement, especially for users preferring multimedia and gaming experiences with good screen quality.
  • Design: That super-slim profile and eco-leather back all seem to conspire to lend it more of a premium look and feel. Made of High-quality plastic, the choice of materials might not go down well with all, specifically those with more affection for a metal finish.


Chipset and Memory:

Realme 12: The MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ used in this device would handle all the day-to-day stuff that one runs, including light gaming, but would really be put under stress for intense gaming. The memory comes with two variants 6GB and 8GB RAM options.

Realme 12+ 5G:: This mobile will set performance enhancement in line while running the phone through the Dimensity 7050 chipset. It will make multitasking and running demanding apps smooth with up to 8GB RAM capacity. This model sets itself up well between performance and efficiency.


Realme 12:

  • Rear Camera: A triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor makes it a great camera option for the price bracket but there is room for improvements in dull light situations.
  • Front Camera: The 8MP selfie camera does a pretty decent job for social media, though it could have been much better.

Realme 12+ 5G:

  • Rear camera: There is a significant upgrade from the base variant to a quad-camera setup, including a 50MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor.
  • Front Camera: The 16MP selfie camera is a notable upgrade, making better selfie quality and video call quality.

Battery Life:

  • Capacity: Both Realme 12 and Realme 12+ have a 5000 mAh beefy battery. Almost all companies targeting the Indian market make long-lasting batteries and Realme is no different.
  • Charging: The Realme 12 supports 45W fast charging, whereas the Realme 12+ 5G steps up with 67W fast charging.

Both phones will last the whole day as per the company. Realme 12+ 5G seems to be a great consideration with its fast charging feature to ensure there is no unnecessary downtime.


  • The Realme 12 5G is available for ₹16,999 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at ₹17,999.

Points for Improvement:

The Realme 12 series doesn’t fall short of its drawbacks, but with many, many great things going on, there is a lot attainable that they further can advance, making use of, in providing their customer user experience the best.

  • Its camera hardware is solid enough, although it could have done better in low-light photography; the night mode is not that great either.
  • The UI is just filled with preloaded apps that some users may find completely unnecessary. A cleaner, simpler, and slicker software experience is what the doctor ordered.
  • Placed aside from the Xiaomi Redmi Note series, or even the A-series by Samsung, the Realme 12 and 12 Pro 5G are both at the top of the pack if design and performance are anything to go by. But again, build quality, software experience, and brand values could make a dent in sales for Realme.
