OnePlus 12

The OnePlus 12 is a formidable smartphone that has a great balance of hardware, performance, photography, and novel features. The silky black unit I’ve been using for the last fortnight looks great on the hand with the striking Hasselblad camera system module on the rear. Things that I loved about this phone include the amazing 2K 120 Hz ProXDR display, which is as clear and bright (4,500 nits) as it gets. The on-board Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU and upto 16 GB of RAM combine to provide a performance powerhouse be it gaming, multitasking, video editing, etc. The 4th Gen Hasselblad camera system takes by far the best photos and videos I’ve seen this year on a mobile over various subjects, distances, and lighting conditions while providing remarkable colour accuracy! Battery life lasted me almost 44 hours on average with heavy usage, and what’s impressive is the 50 W AIRVOOC charging (separate charger required) available for ultra-rapid wireless charging. The OnePlus 12 is also Wi-Fi 7-ready and comes with spatial audio support and even reverse charging with compatible devices. The OxygenOS 14 on board (Android 14) driven by the Trinity engine has one of the best UIs available in the market, with features galore. I know it's early in the year, but this may just be my personal pick for the smartphone of the year based on the superior and comprehensive experience it provides! Good one OnePlus! INR 64,999.
