Samsung has done a superb job in assembling some incredible components in its Samsung F42 at a reasonable price. This Samsung 5G mobile price in India is ₹22,999 which is quite fair when compared to other 5G mobiles currently available in the market. 

Honestly, Samsung is providing quite good components for this price range. Below I have comprehensively discussed the features of this mobile, so read attentively if you are really interested in trying this Samsung latest mobile 2022 5G. 

Distinctive Features of Samsung Galaxy F42

Technology have a huge impact on daily life, for instance, it’s the result of Samsung’s constant technological innovations that it fitted the finest components at this price. Samsung Galaxy F42 5G provides excellent features like an amazing processor, 12 5G bands, triple cameras, and long battery backup for 22K. 

This extensive analysis of Samsung F42 features will give you a thorough understanding of its strengths and limitations! 

1. Performance Review of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G⭐⭐⭐⭐

Unlike Samsung Galaxy M14 5G, this time Samsung opted for the Mediatek instead of Exynos. The Samsung F42 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor and Android 11 operating system. This 5G processor has 12 5G bands, which enables this mobile to handle everything from playing games to smooth content consumption. 

Samsung F42 processor

MTK Dimensity 700 processor ensures a power-packed performance while gaming, streaming, and multitasking. To complement such a solid processor, Samsung provides the OneUI software, which is one of the most organized software programs out there. The high-octane performance of this phone will exceed all your expectations.

2. Display Review of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G ⭐⭐⭐

The F42 has a 6.6-inch LCD 90 Hz display and comes with Widevine L1 to stream FHD+ content online. Samsung gives you a high-quality IPS LCD screen which ensures clear vision even in broad daylight. The LCD panel screen is good, but I would have appreciated it more if Samsung had provided the AMOLED display like it did in the Samsung Galaxy S23 5G

Display of Galaxy F42 5G

With Samsung F42, you will be able to effortlessly stream content indoors as well as outdoors. The 16.72 cm FHD+ infinity-V display will give you a grand view of everything. The only annoying thing about the display is Samsung doesn’t specify the glass protection it is using. 

3. Cameras Review of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G ⭐⭐⭐

Samsung Galaxy F42 5G click good pictures with a 64 MP primary camera, a 5 MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP depth, and a 16MP selfie camera. The front and rear cameras of Galaxy F42 can capture wonderful images, but the video resolution of both cameras is quite low.

The cameras can shoot videos up to 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second, which means that all your videos are going to be shaky. I found the camera average because the 64MP primary sensor camera was able to click pictures precisely only in the presence of good light however in low light, the camera misses out on details. 

Even the 5MP ultra-wide lens and 2MP depth cameras don’t work well and are installed just for the sake of marketing. A 12MP sensor like Samsung Galaxy F14 5G would have worked better instead of a 5MP sensor. Though Samsung claims the 64MP camera comes with a night mode for lit clicks, in reality, this camera isn’t apt for clicking pictures during the night. 

4. Speakers Review of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G ⭐⭐⭐

This mobile has mediocre audio quality with a single bottom-firing speaker. I will suggest you not expect the perfect or HD-quality audio from this device. Though the audio is average, it has a secondary noise-cancellation microphone, so making peaceful calls on Galaxy F42 5G is definitely not going to be a problem.

The cameras and speakers are pretty disappointing, and their average quality doesn’t justify the price of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G. Poor audio quality can really hamper content consumption and spoil your leisure time. I will suggest you to invest in a good pair of headphones for a better audio experience. 

5. Battery Review of Samsung Galaxy F42 5G ⭐⭐⭐

This device comes with a 5000MAH battery and 15W charging support. On average, the battery lasts up to the entire day after charging fully. Even if you are a frequent or heavy gamer, still the battery will last for a day. The battery backup is quite long and impressive, but the claims of superfast charging by Samsung don’t seem to be real.

The 15W adapter of the phone takes an eternity to charge the phone. Being a tech geek, sluggish charging is a cause of concern for me, so I need to carry the charger all the time. If you also lack the time to charge the phone, I will advise you to buy a suitable adapter, this way you won’t need to carry the charger everywhere you go. 

Our Verdict – Is This Phone a Hit?

Samsung F14 is one of the best launches of Samsung, but LCD, regular speakers, and cameras make it a bit overpriced. My overall experience with the Samsung latest mobile 2022 5G was quite good, all the operations were smooth, games went well, and battery backup was also impressive. 

The only thing that disappointed me the most was poor audio quality and a slow charger. All I want to say is at least I deserve a real superfast charger for 22K. This phone is worth investing in if you are okay with the LCD screen and don’t have a problem compromising with the charging speed and poor audio.

So this was all about Samsung F42, I hope this Samsung Galaxy F42 5G helped make a choice in deciding whether this phone is for you. Advancing to the end, let’s take a quick look at the frequently asked questions about this phone.
