Verdict
Samsung Galaxy M42 5G is an interesting addition to the mid-range lineup. It comes powered by Snapdragon 750G that gives you 5G support with 8GB RAM. You get a Super AMOLED screen but with only HD+ quality and no high refresh rate support for this price. The rear cameras are decent, and you have the One UI based on Android 11 OS. The battery back up is also decent but only supports 15W fast charging. And then, you can only expand storage using the hybrid SIM slot. By the looks of it, Galaxy M42 5G faces tough fight to attract buyers.
