HTC U12 Plus Quick Review!
One iconic thing about HTC U12+ appearance is its Liquid Surface design. This design makes its rear so goodly to look at. The technicality of the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covering the back makes this good look feasible. Also, this same glass sits on top of the screen to deliver protective services. A dual camera setup is brilliantly placed in the top quadrant at the rear. A dual-LED flash and fingerprint scanner also follow suit in the rear region.
HTC utilized the eye-catching 18:9 aspect ratio on the tall 6.0-inch Super LCD6 IPS screen of this smartphone. The display is well governed by the Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels and 537PPI pixel density. Have zero worries about water resistance as this device can last for 30 minutes in 1.5m of water.
The camera unit is very intriguing, I must say. Videos of 4K resolution can be recorded with the aid of the dual 12 + 16MP rear cameras. Both present pretty images in dark conditions due to the intervention of a dual tone dual-LED flash. Features such as dual pixel PDAF, 2x optical zoom and laser autofocus all spice up the camera actions. Even selfies are executed by quality dual 8MP shooters with f/2.0 aperture.
As the best things are meant to for the premium devices, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset runs as the heart of this phone. It sports an octa-core 2.8GHz Kryo CPU as well as Adreno 630 GPU. Its performance is further enhanced by a stunning 6GB RAM.
A standard 64GB internal memory is available although a larger 128GB internal memory is an option. Additionally, a 512GB memory card can still be used on the phone. Android Oreo OS with Sense UI provides the software instructions while a non-removable 3,500mAh battery covers the duration aspect.
