As a preamble to this test
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?This model, the Desire 12+ 32 GB uses Android, which is already a choice in the telephone world.
Considering that this is not a prohibitive measure, let’s see if this article is made for you.
This Desire 12+ 32 GB is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

What does mobility look like?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
Desire 12+ 32 GB’s really small.Indeed, with its 6.0 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Important when you’re away from home.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This model allows you to manage several operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this Desire 12+ 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 2965 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, HTC has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the Desire 12+ 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
On the audio side, HTC wanted to do it right.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
HTC’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
What came out of our tests is that the Desire 12+ 32 GB is low in power.The components are starting to date (Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 (14 nm) processor), and the quality is less good.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 32 GB, which is low.But some of you will need more; that’s why HTC has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.With a power of 2965 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.HTC has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.This model thus has only one objective.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this Desire 12+ 32 GB is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.The results of your holiday movies will be of very good quality.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
The components of the device allow quality selfies.This will allow you to retouch your photos.This Desire 12+ 32 GB will capture all the points of the image, and will perfectly reproduce the brightness and colors.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
What about the Desire 12+ 32 GB?
Our analysis showed that this Desire 12+ 32 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
