The greatest deal for Snapdragon 750 that too with Samsung. Buy blindly. There are many comments on display quality. But it doesn’t matter that much , what we have to see in buying 5G phone is future proof. Buying 90hz display with cheap processor won’t last you for year

This phone has one of the best 5G processor SD 750 which can last longer than others. There are few 5G mobiles Under 20 k which offers better display than this.

1. Oppo A74: but in this the processor you get SD 480, which is the basic version of 5G processor and below par than SD 750.

2. Oppo a53s: which uses mediatek dimension 700 . Please don’t compare media Tek Vs Snapdragon.

Final verdict: You have to decide what you want. If you really looking for best 5G features under 20 k then blindly go for M42. Since no other company offers SD 750 processor for less than 20 k.

I bought the phone after getting attracted to the banners only and here’s what i found out after that:

Pros – 5,000 mah Battery is Very good can go upto 2 days without charge, true 48 mp quad camera is upto the mark as expected from samsung, 750 g processor is excellent, 5G bands are supportive with more frequencies and lastly, Knox security plays a big role in making it better.

Cons – Display is really bad only HD+ instead Samsung should have gone with FHD+ with this price and it has only 266 PPI which makes it even worse only thing good in display is that it is Super Amoled, In-box Charger is only 15W which is also dissapointing and aslo there wasn’t any soft case inside the box or pre-applied screen protector.

Samsung Galaxy M42 Reviews

The Galaxy M42 5G isn’t an extraordinary phone! It doesn’t go for what Xiaomi and Realme are trying to offer and instead sticks to a simple design. But, it tries to compensate for the dull design it has introduced in 2021. Hence, a dual-tone texture, which when placed at the right angle, creates a rainbow design. Some sparkle to make us not dislike the phone. This can be liked for those seeking simplicity with some fanciness. Read More


As the most affordable 5G phone from Samsung, the Galaxy M42 5G has quite a few things going for it, including decent performance and good battery life. However, the phone gets outgunned by similarly-priced rivals, many of which can offer better specs and a better real-world experience. Read More

The Galaxy M42 5G is the first smartphone in Samsung’s M series to get 5G support. It also happens to be the most affordable smartphone in the entire Samsung stable to offer 5G connectivity. The Galaxy M42 5G is 8.6mm in thickness and weighs 193g which is manageable. It’s comfortable to hold and the buttons were easy to reach.
If you are looking specifically for a 5G-ready smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 10i (Review)and the Realme X7 (Review) are better alternatives to the Galaxy M42 5G at this price level. Read More
