Andreidinutu, 21 Dec 2020It's a samsung midranger! They are meant for media! This is blasphemy to the a40. Especia... moreyou're right but you also have to keep in mind that the target demographic for the A42 are people who want to enjoy the benefits of 5G on a budget, so of course they had to cut some corners to keep the price in the affordable range
AnonD-821125, 19 Dec 2020lower resolution= more breathing room for cpu= better performanceIt's a samsung midranger! They are meant for media! This is blasphemy to the a40. Especially being 300 bloody euro.
Make a new line of phones for this, dont call it the a series
The a40 line was about the compact
Why they changed resolution and format is a mystery to me
can't really see the screen quality difference with my Galaxy note 9 (standard setting), good build, astounding battery life, very happy with it.
Bring every Samsung phone in Asia with Dual Sim version....
price is damn unreasonable though
lower resolution= more breathing room for cpu= better performance
just received one in store,screen is blah-pixelated and the price is high,of course plastic is everywhere
Drake, 17 Dec 2020720p yikes 2020 but still in 720p display like one of the big cons that u will ever include!!!Yea, yes, 720p display. Samsung just wanted to give us more option to choose. But if u really wanted to compare displays from samsung, it's not a good idea.
If u really wanna compare display, compare it with A30 and the price for the display.
Btw, this is currently the cheapest 5G phone. They focused on making a cheap 5G phone. If u like to target weakness in some spec, every company has one something like this. Dont even know why u come to the budget section to criticize things.
I love Snapdragon, 15 Dec 2020In my opinion, M series is "Power Bank" series to me. The M51, 7000Mah, crazy batter... more720p yikes 2020 but still in 720p display like one of the big cons that u will ever include!!!

Dude468, 14 Dec 2020what is the difference between the A and the M lineup?In my opinion, M series is "Power Bank" series to me. The M51, 7000Mah, crazy battery capacity but a unreasonable chipset according to the price. Nowadays u can see a better chipset in lower price but ofc, there's pros and cons. Now the A series. The A series is kinda a "overall" (everything balance), but starting from the A4(A40, A41, A42) series u will see some weird spec happening as they need to sell it cheap. A50 and A51 is currently the highest selling android phones in 2019 and 2020. But at the end of 2020 u will start to see some phones selling almost the same specs at a lower price from companies like Xiaomi. I know there a lot more better spec at the same price from other companies but trust me, Samsung knows what's best for their phones in terms of ageing. U can see a lot of phones that has 33W charging or 65W charging but faster charging can create more heat as this can turn into a damage to your battery. If your usage style is not an "abuse" usage the Samsung's phone can definitely last long, as long as 5 or more as the batteries inside Samsung's phones are certified to last atleast 5years before the liquids inside te battery starts leaking. Even in A0 series(A01, A02) they also use 5 yrs certified battery in those phones. Hope this gives u an idea of it, have a nice day.
what is the difference between the A and the M lineup?
A42 5G is still stuck at October 2020 security patch in Singapore. My cheaper realme 5i has just received November 2020.
