Additional features contribute to the Realme 12 Pro’s appeal, including a premium design with a luxurious golden fluted bezel and an optional vegan leather back for those with an eye for aesthetics. Its IP65 water resistance offers peace of mind against splashes and dust. Running on Realme UI 5.0 based on Android 14, it provides a clean and user-friendly interface with the latest Android features. The phone’s aesthetics is something that intrigued me.

After looking at its features, the Realme 12 Pro emerges as a solid mid-range contender. It does have a versatile camera system with a standout telephoto lens, a smooth 120Hz display, and a long-lasting battery with supervooc charging. The design is also worth mentioning, with its premium touches and optional vegan leather back.

However, it’s not without its limitations. The processor, while decent, isn’t flagship-level, and storage options might feel limited for some users.

Ultimately, the decision comes down to your needs and priorities. If you prioritize camera versatility, display quality, and battery life at a competitive price, the Realme 12 Pro is definitely worth considering. Even, if raw-to-medium processing power is your one of top concerns, you might want to consider this.

Editor’s Note

Since the processor is brand new and even if it offers mid-range benchmark scores, I recommend you wait some time and let the experts test it in the market so that you can get a better picture of its performance.

Remember, the best phone is the one that best suits your individual needs and budget. Weigh the pros and cons carefully before making your final decision.
