The design and build quality of this smartphone is quite impressive and premium. The 12R comes with a glass back with a glossy finish at the back panel and the frame is a metal frame, which increases the durability of the smartphone.

When you hold the smartphone it feels premium and you must have to use it with the back cover otherwise it leaves too many fingerprints spot at the back as it comes with a glossy finish. In front, we get Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection on screen but we recommend you to use it with tempered glass.
