Features, Performance, and Reviews for the HTC U12 life

The camera function of HTC U12 life

The HTC U12 life has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The HTC U12 life is equipped with a rather powerful 13 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of HTC U12 life

The HTC U12 life has a relatively large battery with 3600 mAh. The HTC U12 life has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

HTC U12 life's size

The HTC U12 life is 3.0 inches (75.4 mm) wide, 6.2 inches (158.5 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.3 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the HTC U12 life, it weighs about 175 oz (175 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the HTC U12 life, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

HTC U12 life's screen

The HTC U12 life has a 6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the HTC U12 life is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of HTC U12 life

The HTC U12 life has an extremely high processing power of 1.8GHz+1.6GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The HTC U12 life has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The HTC U12 life is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

HTC U12 life's storage capacity

The HTC U12 life has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the HTC U12 life is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of HTC U12 life

The HTC U12 life is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
