Energizer E12 Features

The Energizer E12 is a feature phone that prides itself on being small and simple. The phone weighs just 91kg and being 50mm wide makes this positively tiny going by today’s standards. The 1000mAh battery is not that large, but it is enough to power up your phone for up to a week ot standby or 8 hours of music.

Speaking of music, the Energizer E12 has dedicated media keys below the screen. You can load up the microSD card with MP3’s (up to 16GB) and just hit “Next” until you find a song you like. And if you don’t, there’s an FM radio button too.

Despite its minute price tag, the Energizer E12 has both rear camera and a selfie camera. Both are just VGA cameras though. There’s an LED torch on top of the phone, so you can use it as a flashlight too (due to the placement, you can’t use it as a camera flash).

The Energizer E12 is also a dual SIM phone, but it come with only 2G connectivity. 2G is still exists in most countries in the world, but most countries that shut down 2G networks would not be needing a €12 phone. You should have it in mind that this phone will be available only through carriers and retailers, Avernir does not sell them directly.
