Reviewing the iQOO 12 gets more difficult with each iterative launch. Not because the brand is resting on its laurels but because it tries to wear many hats at once and doesn’t commit to one. Is it a gaming phone? Sure, if you’re looking for the most powerful chip with the fastest display along with an additional chip which manages frame interpolation and super resolution for gaming. Is it a flagship killer? Minus the wireless charging, there’s practically nothing wrong here. Cameras are decent too. Does it look nice? It’s one of the few smartphones that comes in white and looks classy as heck.
What’s the catch? Well, it doesn’t commit to being a total gaming phone or a flagship killer, Although, it can be the next best thing, an everyday gaming smartphone.
