U12 Life should not be compared with HTC U12 Plus which is HTC’s  top Flagship phone.

Announced at IFA 2018 in Berlin, the HTC U12 Life features a reduction in resolution, power and camera capabilities compared with the U12 Plus, but it is a big improvement on the 2017’s HTC U11 Life, making it a much more attractive affordable smartphone.

Body

The phone has a sleek design with shiny body which is common to HTC phones. Glass-backed phones are generally pretty slippery in the hand, but the U12 Life is much easier to grip, and it felt secure in our palm.
