The Samsung Galaxy M42 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, its 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.


Samsung’s latest One UI 3.1 over Android 11 has been included on Samsung Galaxy M42 5G. And platform-wise, this phone everything Galaxy A52 5G is. Some of the new features include a dark mode for your menus and a new set of gestures for navigation. Here, you swipe from the sides to go back rather than swiping from the bottom like before. But the old options are still there if you want. You also have edge panels here, which can be pretty handy swiping on the edge of the screen will bring you to a customizable space for shortcuts. At the heart of the Galaxy M42, 5G is Samsung’s new Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset.

Quad cameras

We are looking at a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle cam a 5-megapixel macro shooter, and a depth sensor in daylight. The main cam takes decent pictures. There are good sharpness wide dynamic range, low noise, and balanced colors. You can shoot videos only up to 1080p@30fps here which is a bit surprising. Maybe one of the compromises to achieve Galaxy M42 5G’s price in Kenya.

Samsung Galaxy M42 5G has a 20 MP, f/2.2, (wide) selfie camera which is the same lens we see on the Samsung Galaxy A32. It is the kind that produces attention-grabbing selfies because of its high-resolution photos. Selfies turn out good with nice colors. Why dynamic range and plenty of detail. Sharpness and dynamic range are both quite good making this a significant upgrade. The only explanation on why image qualities may vary is because this phone has a different processor and a less inferior display.


Once more we call on you to exercise your thoughts on what we will say next. Samsung Galaxy M42 5G comes with a massive 5,000 mAh battery. We best describe its performance as the power that keeps you going all day long. Seriously though, isn’t 5000 mAh so generous? We find it is. And should you start running low, plugin, and power up with 15W Fast Charging? A 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector is present here. You also get NFC and 5.0, A2DP, LE with Samsung Galaxy M42 5G.
