The OnePlus 12 is positioned at an upper midrange price with a robust glass build and runs on Android. It features a large 6.82-inch curved OLED screen with high resolution and a high refresh rate, providing a vivid and smooth display experience. If you're looking for excellent camera performance, the OnePlus 12 doesn't disappoint, offering multiple rear cameras with good quality across different aspects such as low light performance and dynamic range, including a 50 megapixel main and a 64 megapixel telephoto with 3x zoom. The ultrawide camera at 48 megapixels also captures a wide field of view. For those who value battery life, it has a substantial capacity and fair endurance. The phone includes a high-performance processor paired with ample RAM, ensuring smooth multitasking and gaming. It supports 5G, NFC, and wireless charging with a high-speed option. If a headphone jack or expandable storage is crucial for you, note that this device lacks both. It is water-resistant and comes with warranty support, and for those into phone customization, it has an unlockable bootloader and custom ROM support. The OnePlus 12 also includes a fast charger in the box, meaning you won't need to purchase one separately. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Performance:
5.0
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Overall Camera:
4.4
The OnePlus 12 has a good photos software experience and good selfie quality, however, the overall camera performance may not stand out because of the average performance in dynamic range and low light conditions both for photos and videos, as well as camera versatility. If selfies and general photo taking are very important to you, you might consider alternatives that excel in these areas.
Battery Life:
4.4
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Photos:
4.4
The OnePlus 12 takes poor photos because, despite average scores in software experience and low light performance, the selfie camera quality is considered to be merely good, which is very important to overall photo quality for some users. Also, the phone's abilities in terms of dynamic range and camera versatility are good but not outstanding, impacting how well it can handle various shooting conditions.
Videos:
4.0
The OnePlus 12 takes poor videos mainly due to its very good yet not best video software experience and good video stabilization which might not be sufficient for extremely smooth footage. Additionally, while its video dynamic range and low light performance are rated as good, these aspects might not meet the expectations of users seeking exceptional video capture in varying lighting conditions.
