Overview Samsung Galaxy A42 5G
Android version and market relevance
The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Samsung, which took place in September 2020 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2020). This is a new model Samsung Galaxy A42 5G — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 10, 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. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.
Screen, body and battery
Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Samsung Galaxy A42 5G received Super AMOLED-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 Samsung Galaxy A42 5G 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 drop notch above 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 Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is 8.6 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 5 000 mAh, that just mega-cool for such a device. The operating time on one battery charge will exceed all your expectations.
Main camera and selfie camera
A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 20 MP Wide. 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 (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro + 5 MP Depth sensor, 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
The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Samsung Galaxy A42 5G has 8-core Snapdragon 750 5G. You can select the RAM 4 GB or version 8 GB.
The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 128 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .
Price for Samsung Galaxy A42 5G: buy or not to buy?
So we told about not very expensive powerful smartphone Samsung Galaxy A42 5G with a huge screen, chic main camera and very good selfie camera, and still there is a super-capacious battery.
All these characteristics in 2020 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in November 2020 at a price of $370. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.
