The OnePlus 12R is a midrange-priced phone with a large battery capacity, making it suitable for extended use between charges. With a 120Hz refresh rate on its large OLED screen featuring a curved edge, it offers a smooth visual experience. However, if camera quality is a top priority, this phone delivers good performance overall, though it's not top-of-the-line. Its main camera carries a substantial amount of megapixels, but note that there is no telephoto lens for zoomed-in shots. It runs on Android and is equipped with a high-performance processor and generous RAM, ensuring snappy performance for everyday tasks and more demanding applications. Lastly, if wireless charging is a feature you're looking for, this phone doesn't support it. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Performance:
4.8
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Battery Life:
4.4
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Overall Camera:
4.2
The OnePlus 12R's cameras are considered to have poor quality due to its average selfie performance, which is a very important aspect for many users, and its generally good but not exceptional performance across other important factors such as photo resolution, software experience, dynamic range, and low light performance. Additionally, although its camera versatility is rated as good, it may not stand out against competitors with more advanced camera features or higher rated capabilities.
Photos:
4.2
The OnePlus 12R takes poor photos primarily because it has a lower selfie quality, which may result in less satisfying selfie photographs. Additionally, while other aspects like software experience, dynamic range, and low light performance are rated as good, they may not meet the needs of users seeking exceptional camera performance.
Videos:
3.6
The OnePlus 12R takes poor videos primarily due to its average performance in video resolution and frame rate, which limits the clarity and smoothness of the video capture. Additionally, the software optimization for video is just adequate, suggesting that the user experience for capturing videos may not be as polished or intuitive compared to other devices with better-tuned software.
