Should you buy?

Now that we’ve listed out the OnePlus 12R discount, let’s see if it makes sense to get this deal. OnePlus 12R is a fairly new phone and you won’t get an upgrade until the end of the year or early 2025. Based on our review, the OnePlus 12R has an excellent display, smooth performance, and superb battery life. You also get 100W fast charging with the 12R. The camera performance turned out to be decent, and it’s the only department where the phone fails to justify its price. But otherwise, you’re getting a flagship-level smartphone with the OnePlus 12R. 

Since the phone is only a few months old, it’s not going to get any major discount soon. So if you had the OnePlus 12R in mind then you can consider this deal. If you can wait then it would be advisable to try and get a better deal on the OnePlus 12R in the future. You can also consider alternatives for a cheaper price like the Motorola Edge 50 Pro which starts at Rs 31,999. You won’t get the best performance with this phone but it’s still a much cheaper alternative. If you want one with the same specifications as the OnePlus 12R then you can go for the iQOO Neo 9 Pro which starts at Rs 35,999. Our performance tests also found the Neo 9 Pro beating the OnePlus 12R in most categories.
