A quick unboxing, just so I tell show you what’s in the box. You get a SIM to card ejector, the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G obviously, a USB-C cable, and a 15-watt charger head. The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G has a very unique design. There are four different tones here in blue, red, green, and yellow. It has this iridescent glow that shifts when you tilt the phone at different angles. But Samsung claims the phone itself is available in Prism Dot Black, Prism Dot White, and Prism Dot Gray.


The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G has a 6.6 inches Super AMOLED display, which is huge. But there is one slight situation (for some people). It only pushes 720 x 1600 pixels resolution which can be a big no-no for some people simply because when it comes to watching YouTube videos or even Netflix, it display just looks bad as compared to many other phones. This one also noticed that the display tends to lean on the warmer side. But it can be adjusted under the setting. Yes! You can actually pull it back to the cooler tones.

Camera performance

Alright, I think so far so good. We have already talked about some key features of the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G smartphone. Moving on this phone has a 48-megapixel quad camera set up. Speaking of quad the main is supported with an 8 MP, f/2.2, 123˚ (ultrawide) lens, a 5 MP, f/2.4, (macro), and a final 5 MP, f/2.4, (depth) shooter. Video recording quality is fairly good and is at 4K@30fps, 1080p@30fps, 720p@480fps with the main camera and only up to 1080p@30fps with the 20 MP, f/2.2, (wide) selfie shooter. Photos actually look good when the lighting is great.


Samsung Galaxy A42 5G phone is powered by a Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750 5G (8 nm) chipset, and it comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage. Expandable up to one terabyte with a micro SD card. This phone will also appeal to gamers. You can smoothly play games at medium graphics with medium frame rates (but not at the highest setting). But should you choose to go to the highest graphics, you can change the frame rate to 60 frames per second.

On the next-generation mobile data network, the power of 5G fast speeds changes the way you experience and share content—from super-smooth gaming and streaming to ultra-fast sharing and downloading. Upgrade to the Galaxy A42 5G and speed up your smartphone experience. Information from the official product website of Galaxy A42 5G.


Finally, sealed within Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is a Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable battery and it comes with 15-watt adaptive fast charging. It’s not uncommon to find phones with like huge batteries these days. But with this one, fast charging 15W and a large battery capacity is a big deal because it is a 5G powered smartphone which goes a long way in quickly draining the battery when activated.
