it's better than paying more for something that's worth less
Coolnicky, 25 Dec 2020Well my Samsung has zero ads while Xiaomi pushes a lot of ads on their phones."a lot" is an exaggeration, the only time where you get ads is when you use miui apps (Themes for example).

It's a shame that Samsung has decided to get rid of the compactness of the previous A4* models including the downgrade to a 720p display. Great looking plastic back though!!
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2020Xiaomi made it so cheap because of the explicit and 18+ ads in MIUI.that may just be your ad personalisation at work because i haven't encountered a single inappropriate ad on my both my note 8 pro and 9c : P
720p display in this price, literally? I would rather go pro realme 7 pro (4G) or redmi note 9 pro 5G

Display 720p, 🙄🙄🙄..

Too big screen !!! ,very uncomfortable on hands, a40, a41 models were compact size
A42 : 720p but Super Amoled.
A32: 1080p but no Super Amoled.
A30, A31, A40 and A41: 1080p with Super Amoled.
Samsung is really messing and dumping their A series phones next year.
samsung phones are overpriced anyway. i don't see why anyone who's well versed in tech would waste their money on a brand new samsung phone. the mi 10 lite 5G costs the same, has much better specifications and a 1080p display at that.
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
