The OnePlus 12 Review: The Marvels of OnePlus’s 10th-anniversary Masterpiece

Introduction

When it comes to domestic mobile phone manufacturers, OnePlus stands tall among the top contenders, possibly even in the top three. Over time, OnePlus, with its “Never Settle” motto, has become synonymous with coolness in the minds of many users.

However, the market landscape can be unforgiving. The evolution of sophisticated custom UIs has led to HydrogenOS, once celebrated for its simplicity, appearing outdated. The transition to ColorOS with the OnePlus 9 series marked a shift from a niche geek brand to a mass-market player, focusing on price-performance ratios.

In this review, we delve into the features and performance of the OnePlus 12, particularly the striking green color variant with 16GB + 512GB configuration.The OnePlus 12
