Reviews for the LG K42
The LG K42 so far has gained great impressions in its design, it is a military-grade MLT-STD-816G complaint, has a unique wave pattern on the back, and gives a comfortable grip. The display on the other hand is bright despite being a 720p. But due to the weak CPU and the average cameras, rivals may outperform the LG K42. It can be a good alternative to the Chinese rivals, as far as you are not concerned about the performance and cameras.

Summarising the LG K42, the phone has a new design, a large display, a decent battery life and an average camera performance. Though the phone fairs well on many fronts, what may not work is the price segment in which it falls. Brands like Xiaomi, Realme and for that matter, even Samsung offer multiple options in this price range. And to be fair, they come with more features than offered by LG K42. At Rs 10,990, LG K42 may not be a deal-breaker, but if you can get hold of it at a lesser price, it can be a good option.

The LG K42 is a good looking device, but fails to stand out in any other area. The phone’s looks are great and can turn heads, but a phone that doesn’t have the performance, the camera optics, or the battery life to stand out in a sea of competitors cannot be a good recommendation. Further, the LG K42’s grippy and good looking back is rendered pointless if you have to snap on a case to protect the phone anyway.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
