Samsung Galaxy A12 is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of phone for the money I got two of these (wife and me) from Tesco mobile a week ago and for a budget phone they are great. Good clear, large display, massive 5000 mAh battery (that lasted 5 days from switching on) and a terrific quad camera. They are great for watching videos and everything seems to work well. If you are a keen gamer who wants 5G then probably not for you. but great for anyone else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy . European phone . I have used carphone wharehouse for years and have always been happy up to now . I purchased an A12 last week for my wife and paid for the insurance and to have it set up . The next day when we were at home i noticed that there was a sticker on the box stating that the seal had been broken and the phone had been updated because it was for the European market , that started to ring bells , the guarantee wasnt readable as it wasnt in English and websites started coming up in a foreign language . I am very upset as we are retired and not technically " with it ' i feel i should have been informed and not just " palmed off " with something which is not of the quality i expected . I will be returning this to Carphone Wharehouse for a full refund . I went there in the first place as we had history with the company but i have noticed that the phone is cheaper elsewhere. Not a good experience and they have just lost a customer .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose as a phone I returned this phone because it is almost impossible to have a telephone conversation. At full volume and on Speaker, I could hardly hear the quiet, tinny voice at the other end and several people said I too sounded quiet and far away. I cannot say whether it was faulty. I have returned it and gone back to my old Samsung Galaxy A40 which does not have as good a battery but does at least function as a modern phone.
