70% Samsung Galaxy F42 5G review: A valuable budget choice
Source: Gadgets Now English
Samsung Galaxy F42 5G comes with a starting price of Rs 17,999. The handset does lag behind in terms of camera performance and quick charging. But a smooth colourful display, a long battery life cover up and a decent performing chipset make it a compatible budget choice.

Samsung Galaxy F42 Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Today’s smartphone world is very competitive. Therefore, it is necessary to come up with better specifications to overcome the competition. As there’s Redmi, Realme, Vivo coming up with amazing features at a low budget price, Samsung is also doing its best. It is a popular brand and because that you can trust on Samsung phones. Overall the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy F42 smartphone are good but there are flaws too. A modified camera will initially appeal to you, but if you compare the phone to others, buying this phone doesn’t make sense. If you are looking for an alternative option with 5g support you can definitely take a look at the Xiaomi Poco M3 Pro smartphone.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
