, and HTC is back. U12 Life offers good design and specifications for less than 拢300, but has its drawbacks and you will find it in our comprehensive review.


HTC has been struggling with the phone business for a while, but we liked U11 Life last year. The same is true for the updated version, which brings a variety of improvements and Android One.


HTC U12 Life: Price and Place of Purchase


Last year, U11 Life was priced at 拢349. Well, HTC has reduced the cost of mobile phones in 2018.


So U12 Life is priced at 拢299 in the UK and 鈧?49 in Europe - we were told it was not destined to be shipped to the US. You can buy it directly from HTC, and it looks like this is your only option, no retailer or network to store your phone.


At this price, it competes in a tough mid-market with mobile phones such as Moto G6 Plus, Honor Play and Samsung Galaxy A6.


HTC U12 Life: Design and Construction


In terms of design, U12 Life looks a bit like Pixel 2, and coincidentally, HTC is made for Google.


There is an interesting effect that HTC calls "3D Ultra Stripes." The sound is like some gimmicks, but these are actually tiny grooves in the "acrylic glass" that are laser cut to a depth of 0.3mm.


Not only does it create a different look than other phones, it helps to grip, which is a common problem with cell phones on the back of the glass. It should also reduce fingerprints.


It does do this, but it is mainly compared to the shiny top. The strange thing is that this is the location of the fingerprint scanner and you will always polish this area to prevent it from looking dirty.


We don't mind if there is 3D Ultra Stripes on the entire back but HTC wants to be duotone.


The front of the phone is very simple, like most people, but this time it looks more beautiful, the screen to body ratio is equivalent to 80%. HTC chose a gap, but the screen is very high, so at least to some extent a trend.


One downside of this year is that U12 Life is not waterproof. HTC says it is impact resistant, but it doesn't have an IP67 rating like its predecessor. But it does have a headphone jack.


For many mid-range phones, the U12 Life is medium in size. It is 8.3 mm thick and weighs 175 grams.


The phone is available in two colors: Midnight Blue and Twilight Purple, as shown below.


HTC U12 Life: Specifications and Features


Compared to its predecessor, the new phone can be launched with almost no upgrades, but U12 Life has many new hardware elements. HTC works very well, considering that mobile phones are cheaper this year.


Screen


Due to the modern 18:9 aspect ratio, U12 Life has a 6-inch large screen. However, with the small border, the overall feeling of the phone is not too big. This is a big jump for U11 Life's 5.2-inch display.


Resolution will also be affected by Full HD. HTC has also switched to a new type of panel called LTPS (low temperature polysilicon), in part because of lower manufacturing costs, which we believe.


HTC says it has advantages over IPS LCDs, including power consumption and better contrast.


We are not sure if this is true, but we can say that the display is very good for mobile phones under 拢300. Although the color is not particularly saturated, it has a certain brightness, and some people may prefer this more natural look and have enough pop-up to avoid it appearing to fade.


Processor, Memory and Storage


The internal upgrade of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor is said to be 40% faster than the 630 inside U11 Life.


There is also 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard, which is the higher specification model last year. If you need to add more storage, you can use the second SIM card slot and add up to 1TB.
There is a 128GB model, but it is unique to Taiwan.


In general, this phone quickly opens up most applications and shows no signs of significant lag. As you can see below, its benchmarks are quite good compared to its predecessors and major competitors, although we don't see a 40% increase in publicity - it's more like 20%.


However, if you are looking for a gaming phone near this price, then check out the honor game.


Connection and Audio


As mentioned in the design section, HTC re-launched the headphone jack, which still has USB-C, as you would expect. Elsewhere, there are dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and NFC, which are top notch.


Camera


We are used to even budget phones with dual cameras, and HTC adds a second to the back to cater to the trend.


So U12 Life once again has a 16Mp f 2.0 camera, but now it is a 5Mp secondary effect. It features Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS).


Battery Life


Battery capacity has increased from 2,600 mAh to 3,600 mAh, so battery life will improve. HTC said that you will get 88 hours of music playback, 13 hours of video (720p, medium brightness) or 12 hours of LTE browsing.


HTC U12 Life: Software and Applications


U11 Life comes with Android One - Google's mobile app offers a commitment to the Android version as well as security and operating system updates.


Although U12 Life is also equipped with most of the versions of Android 8.1 Oreo, HTC has given up this time.


Verdict


Some of the decisions made for U12 Life seem a bit strange, just like giving up Android One and Edge Sense. However, some of them will be reaching its price tag below 拢300, which makes it an interesting option for mid-range.


Competitors on the car marketplace is massi.
