  • Pros
  • Big screen
  • Punch hole design
  • 64GB storage
  • Quad rear cameras
  • Android 10 out of the box
  • Side fingerprint sensor
  • Cons
  • 3GB RAM only
  • Average hardware performance
  • HD+ screen resolution
  • Average battery backup
LG K42 ranks as a budget phone that has a few things going in its favour. Like the big screen is good for watching videos, and you have 64GB storage to download apps, keep photos clicked using the quad rear camera. The selfie camera does a good job for the price too. But in 2021, we expect a phone in this price range to pack a bigger battery, powerful hardware and definitely a minimum of 4GB RAM. Probably best to look at other options in the market.
