fmeric, 08 Dec 2020This phone is for tricking ppl who don't know what is resolution.Yeah, but that procesaor and battery... i cry for them...
to the attention of gsm arena!!
the samsung a42 5g has a 64mp rear facing main camera (wide angle) not 48mp. it has been changed. also if you are based in the uk, check the currys.co.uk (currys and pc world) website as it shows accurately that it has a 64mp rear facing main camera (wide angle) not 48mp camera.
please change this mistake/issue as soon as possible (see above) - 64mp rear facing camera not 48mp
Should of come with Android 11 which came this year in september, I doubt this phone will even get Android 12, 720p in 2020 for 300 dollars is horribile. Camera probably didnt improve much. Macro camera sees a large bump in mega pixels but a pro mode which they refuse to deliver could of do something much better. Ultra wide is the same stuff as 2 YEARS ago.
Battery is much higher than the original A40 but that doesnt matter, samsung phones get a lot of bloatware and ads, and 5G isnt really a feature right now. the display is also really big, I dont like the new designs at all, they could do something much better. There is an attempt at doing some gradient but I dont like it. Samsung is rotting, I suggest a pixel 3a or 4a which should be in the same price range. Go check out oneplus nord if you got more money.

This is a fantastic new phone. Best newest Android 10 and the hardware issues a much more practical device. We don't need so high resolution on the touchscreen but the GPU handles projectors of any kind. All comes as 64-bit CPU's these days and this is not only with pc's. I have just bought this 5G enabling phone as a boom to the market if international encrypting all uses same byte lenght. Any alphabet is possible.

But having GPU streaming to external screens happens anyway needed, even if the phone does ned to recalculate views on the touch screen.

In the Philippines, it costs the same as a Mi 10T which is far better than Samsung A42.
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2020Here in ksa, this is 1080 x 2400 pixels, is this true that there is other variant of this phone?Yes, here in philippines they sell that phone in 720p. Too bad it can easily compete with xiaomi if this phones resolution is 1080p
Has nay1 ever noticed that almost every phone has 4k30fps video on the back and 1080p 30 fps video on the front. this applies to flagships from companies like Xiaomi, Realme, oneplus and so on. but for mid rangers its samsung, realme, xiaomi, oneplus and many more. its kinda funny
Tuti, 01 Dec 2020This could be a killer if the screen resolution is 1080p. Too bad for samsungHere in ksa, this is 1080 x 2400 pixels, is this true that there is other variant of this phone?
