Overview LG K42
Android version and market relevance
If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 10 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.
Screen, body and battery
Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. LG K42 received IPS LCD-screen measuring 6.6 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying.
And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of LG K42 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone LG K42 is 8.4 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 000 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.
Another of the features of the hull, we note that LG K42 has dust, water protection. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.
Main camera and selfie camera
The main camera has several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 13 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at LG K42 has one module: 8 MP Wide. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
Brilliant multi-core processor Helio P22 installed in LG K42. 3 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 64 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDXC-cards.
Price for LG K42: buy or not to buy?
Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If LG K42 you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.
However, official sales LG K42 began in September 2020. The manufacturer said the price of $190 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on LG K42, we placed it in the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.
