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. Samsung has picked the capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor for the Galaxy M42 5G, but has also equipped it with an HD+ display which sticks out like a sore thumb in this price range. So can the Galaxy M42 5G help Samsung get ahead of the competition, or has the company cut too many corners? Here's my review

    I was hesitant to buy due to HD+display but believe me it's far better than FHD display of Chinese junks.camera is excellent in daylight and nice in night.SD 750G chipset makes it par excellent in performance.Design is eye catching. Why NDTV gives it 7, I can't understand. Just go for it and you won't regret.
