Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Motorola, which took place in June 2022 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2022). This is a new model Motorola Moto G42 — dual smartphone works on Android 12, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Motorola Moto G42 has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Motorola Moto G42 thickness 8 mm is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large AMOLED touchscreen with a diagonal 6.4″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. 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

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 16 MP with a regular lens. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. 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.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Motorola Moto G42 received 8-core processor Snapdragon 680 4G (6 nm). The amount of RAM in it is 4 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Motorola Moto G42: buy or not to buy?

We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be very powerful in performance, but with a very steep camera.
