Whether you want to document your precious memories or want to start your journey as a content creator (since that sounds more legit than being called a vlogger), it is important to have a good set of tools to shoot good footage. Finding an affordable phone with great shooting capabilities is now easier than ever, and the Samsung Galaxy A12 is the Korean tech giant’s latest effort to offer a budget phone that has the must-haves for a decent device for creating content in various social media platforms–from YouTube to Instagram and TikTok, with the latter two utilizing vertical videos.
What makes the Galaxy A12 something you would consider? Here are its three awesome highlights:
Versatile set of cameras. Having both an ultra-wide-angle and high-resolution main camera are must-haves for a phone to get great footage, and the Galaxy A12 delivers on that. With its 48-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, you have flexible shooting options that can let you focus more on the details or capture a wider field of view to make your vlogs dynamic and engaging to your viewers.
If photos are your thing and you want the best quality possible, the Galaxy A12 has a 48-megapixel shooting mode that gives you a high resolution with more than enough room for cropping and doing other adjustments. For extra assistance, the Galaxy A12 has a depth sensor for cleaner bokeh shots and a macro camera to aid you with close up shots.
Its 8-megapixel selfie snapper delivers good quality footage for your selfies, and you can use all four cameras to shoot Full HD footage–which is the current standard for vlogging.
Long-lasting battery. A phone that’s geared towards content creation should have a battery that can last you for several hours of shooting, and the Galaxy A12’s 5000mAh battery can last you up to two days of use–and around a day if you use it as your main shooting tool.
Topping up the battery is not an issue, as its 15w USB-C Fast Charging Feature lets you get you phone ready as soon as possible so that you can keep on taking footage. All of the Galaxy A12’s great battery efficiency can be credited to Samsung’s updated OneUI overlay.
Large display. If you’re always on the go, a large display helps ensure that you get that shot right, and the Galaxy A12’s 6.5-inch display is big enough to see a good preview of your footage while on the go. Samsung is known for equipping its phones with quality panels, and the Galaxy A12’s IPS display has vibrant colors, good color accuracy, and is bright enough for use in broad daylight.
Its display is great as well for watching videos on YouTube or Netflix in case you need some inspo for your next vlog or you just want to relax after a long, long day.
With those three key features on point, the Galaxy A12 is another budget phone that you can consider for your content creation journey.
The Galaxy A12 is priced at Php 7,990 SRP for the 4GB/128GB model and Php 9,990 SRP for the 6GB/128GB model and is available at all official Samsung retailers, at Samsung’s official Lazada store, and at their own online store.
