Samsung Galaxy A42 5G Hands-On Review: Sammy’s Affordable 5G Option
Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G has a lot of things that we’ve come to enjoy from their other offerings and the addition of Qualcomm’s mid-range 5G-ready processor would have made it easier to recommend for people looking to prepare themselves for the expanding network in the Philippines. But this price bracket has always been contentious and it will definitely have a tough time going against other brands’ products that offer a better price to performance ratio; especially with all the compromises, they’ve made for this model.
