Samsung Galaxy F12 Worth Buying or Not?
Looking at the on-paper specifications of the Galaxy F12, we noticed that the smartphone is as competitive as the other offerings. Redmi Note 10 comes with a slightly better selfie camera, but the rest of the phone does have almost the same features. But we can’t ignore the fact that the Redmi Note 10 lacks battery capacity with a 5,000mAh battery. Considering all the aspect, we can say that the Galaxy F12 is no doubt a decent offering from the company and it will give good competition to the rival brands.
