Samsung Galaxy F42 5G Detailed Review

Performance

The Samsung Galaxy F42 is all about its processor under the hood.

Summary

The Samsung Galaxy F42 has a very powerful processor and a very able RAM allotment

Display

The Samsung Galaxy F42 sports a huge 6.6-inch display that is an FHD+ display. It is a good move to go with an FHD screen and not an AMOLED to keep the cost in check but not compromise too much on quality as well. The Samsung Galaxy F42 has very good contrast and colour levels that allow comfortable viewing of content. The screen on the Samsung Galaxy F42 has a resolution of 1080 x 2408 pixels which is a very good deal considering its price range. There are a few competitors with better resolution but a 1080p screen is not too disappointing also. The only disappointing aspect of the display is the low pixel density. The Samsung Galaxy F42 has a pixel density of just 400 pixels per inch which is slightly lower than the average in the segment. The low pixel density means that the picture quality takes a hit when the ambient lighting is too much and also makes the phone a pain to use in outdoor conditions. The screen has thin bezels, with a screen density of 82.1% and an aspect ratio of 20 : 9.

Summary

The screen is designed to offer good performance but also keep the price in check

Battery

The Samsung Galaxy F42 uses a 7 nm architecture SoC. This means that the Samsung Galaxy F42 requires a lot of juice to support all its multitasking and powerful processing speed. The makers at Samsung made sure that this would not create a problem and gave the Samsung Galaxy F42 a humongous 5000 mAh battery. The huge battery is capable enough to take care of all casual usage and even a few hours of intense gaming with ease. The makers also went a step ahead and made sure that the Samsung Galaxy F42 does not fall into the trap of battery issues. The Samsung Galaxy F42 comes with 15 W fast charging. For a battery of this size, 15 W is a safe option but a bit too safe and faster charging would have suited it better.

Summary

The battery is large and ensures that the Samsung Galaxy F42 stays with you at all your important times

Camera

The camera on the Samsung Galaxy F42 is one of its stand out features. Paired with two sensors, the triple camera setup with the main snapper being a 64 MP lens performs very well. The 64 MP lens captures exceptionally good pictures during the daytime and in the appropriate lighting is bliss to use. You might have to change a few holding directions of your phone to get the perfect click but what photographer does not do that. The 64 MP lens is accompanied by two sensors, a 5 MP ultra-wide lens and a 2 MP depth sensor. The night photography is also above average given the computational algorithms used are of decent quality. A few competitors in the same segment as the Samsung Galaxy F42 offer a higher MP count, the maximum being 108 MP. The front camera on the Samsung Galaxy F42 is an 8 MP lens which gets the job done well too.

Summary

The camera module is well thought and performs very well

Design

The makers at Samsung have put a lot into the design of the Samsung Galaxy F42. The Samsung Galaxy F42 looks and feels a bit different from other Samsung Phones. Built on a plastic frame, the Samsung Galaxy F42 has the dimensions of 167.2 x 76.4 x 9 mm along with reinforced corners. The Samsung Galaxy F42 is on the thicker side which in a good way also prevents accidental drops given the heavy weight of the phone. On the exterior, the Samsung Galaxy F42 has a matte-like finish at the back with well-rounded corners. The triple camera setup comes in a housing with the flash along with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor/ power button. The front has thin bezels and a waterdrop notch that houses the front camera.

Summary

The design is elegant modern and minimalistic
