The HTC U12 Life is a mid-tier device with a good screen size at 6inches, good memory and storage at 4GB and 64GB, plus a generous battery with a 3600mAh rating. The HTC U12 Life will be available from mid-September, priced at £299 sim-free.
HTC U12 Life Features
The design is stylish and good-looking, but with a pattern that provides a better grip, and makes the phone less of a fingerprint magnet. The “Dual design” features a top that is shiny and reflective, and HTC says that most of the time you don’t grip this area of the phone, and a textured surface on the bottom half. The phone is splashproof but not IP rated.
There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones, plus dual loudspeakers. USB C can be found at the bottom of the phone.
On the back is a Dual camera setup, featuring a 16mp + 5mp camera, for bokeh/background blur, and on the front, a 13mp selfie camera with front LED.
The main rear camera features a 16mp 1/2.8inch sensor, an improvement over the U11 Life, and has an f/2.0 aperture, and 25.5mm equivalent lens with PDAF. There’s EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation), but no optical image stabilisation.
