Android version and market relevance

In September 2021 was announced smartphone Samsung Galaxy F42 5G. It is located in the series Samsung among many others smartphones Samsung.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Samsung Galaxy F42 5G works on Android 11, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2021. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Samsung Galaxy F42 5G, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Samsung Galaxy F42 5G works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Samsung Galaxy F42 5G has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.

Screen, body and battery

Good big 6.6-inch screen, made by technology TFT with screen refresh rate 90 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 90 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Samsung Galaxy F42 5G.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Samsung Galaxy F42 5G the thickness of the case is 9 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Samsung Galaxy F42 5G received a drop notch above the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Samsung Galaxy F42 5G installed battery for 5 000 mAh, which is very, very good, this battery will last for a long time.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 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 Samsung Galaxy F42 5G 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

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G (7 nm). RAM 6 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 8 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Samsung Galaxy F42 5G supports memory cards microSDXC with the maximum volume 1000 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Samsung Galaxy F42 5G: buy or not to buy?

So we told about not very cheap powerful smartphone Samsung Galaxy F42 5G with a huge screen, chic main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a super-capacious battery.

All these characteristics in 2021 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 October 2021 at a price of $280. 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.

Before you buy Samsung Galaxy F42 5G, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Samsung Galaxy F42 5G is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
