Another great mid-range phone

Samsung Galaxy M42 has many good specifications that make it a strong competitor in the middle class, the phone comes at a price of less than $ 300, yet it packs many good strengths, most notably the Snapdragon 750G processor, which will provide strong performance in games and daily tasks. The user will not feel any failure in terms of photography because the phone packs a 48 MP quad rear camera that ensures high-resolution images saturated with color and full of detail, all of this is completed with the support of 5G and the giant battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. The standard refresh rate and slow fast charging speed may be fatal flaws but they won't detract from the phone much.

  • The design is good and the thickness of the phone is very thin
  • Super AMOLED Display, which we see in all Samsung phones in the mid-range
  • Software is the newest right now so you won't have to deal with bulky updates that take a long time
  • Powerful processor and you won't have any problem with it in the usual daily tasks
  • A good rear camera will offer the minimum required decent photography experience
  • A giant battery will suffice for a full day of use, meaning it will reach the end of the day, and there is still about 35% of its capacity remaining in the battery
  • Good and decent price although we believe that $ 250 would have been a fair price for the phone
  • The design materials are a bit poor
  • There is no glass back or protective layer on the display, which makes it vulnerable to scratches and bumps
  • The screen resolution is definitely not the best in that price category, as is the peak brightness, which is something that will be noticed in the daytime under the sun
  • We were hoping to see a 256GB internal storage version
  • The experience of viewing content on the screen is not comparable to that of the M62 or the rest of the A series phones
  • Fast charging capacity is somewhat slow, Samsung is still sticking to that ability although competitors are using wired chargers that support fast charging capacity from 30 watts above
