Verdict
Samsung Galaxy F42 offers features that are a mixed bag. You get a Full HD+ 90Hz display but without an AMOLED panel. It uses MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset for performance with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage which is further expandable. The rear cameras are decent and so is the battery life. However, the design is dated and bulky. The front camera is average and the 15W charging speed is not good for the price. You have better options to look at in this price range.
