Infinix Note 12 VIP has some truly fantastic features! I tested all of them, and this is what I found.

It has an impressive design and unique features that left me mesmerized. The camera is perfect, and the sound quality is fantastic. The phone is also responsive. 

Display: Attractive 

The Infinix Note 12 VIP's display is either attractive or vibrant. The colors are bright and rich without being flashy, which makes for an ideal viewing experience, given how much light enters through those tiny holes!

Plus, you can take pictures with your front camera just by peering out from behind its protective glass layer- not sure about anyone else, but I find that pretty unique amongst smartphones these days ;)

The build quality here also seemed pretty solid - though, again, not up there with some of our favorite devices; it felt nice enough in my hand so maybe give them a try if they tickle your fancy.

Performance: Speedy & Smooth 

The Infinix Note 12 VIP's speedy and smooth performance is just fantastic. I can multitask efficiently with no problems at all. Plus, the 8GB of RAM ensures that every app runs smoothly without lag.

And I appreciate the massive 128GB of internal storage - it's more than enough for me to store all my photos, videos, and music. The best part is that I can expand it up to 256GB if I need more space.

Camera: Impressive 

I was excited that the Infinix Note 12 VIP had a triple rear camera setup. I couldn't wait to try it out and see how it would compare to my current phone's camera.

The primary 108MP sensor was impressive. The detail and color accuracy were great, and the image stabilization was incredible. The secondary 13MP sensor was also excellent, and the tertiary 2MP sensor helped capture depth information.

The 16MP front camera was also perfect. The detail and color accuracy were great, and the image stabilization was fantastic. Overall, I was impressed with the camera on the Infinix Note 12 VIP.

Battery: Could be Better 

The Infinix Note 12 VIP supports 18W fast charging via a USB Type-C port. It means I can get a full charge in under two hours. The phone also comes with a 4500mAh battery, which is impressive. So far, I have been thrilled with the Note 12 and its battery life.

Network & Connectivity: Spectacular 

It had all the latest features, and I couldn't wait to start using it. The first thing I did was connect to Wi-Fi and update all of my apps. After that, I started playing around with the different settings and trying other features. I have to say; I'm impressed with this phone. It's the best one I've ever had.

However, it does have some stiff competition from other phones in its price range.
