We've conducted a detailed review of the Galaxy F42 5G, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy F42 5G

Galaxy F42 5G's size

The Galaxy F42 5G is 3.00787inches (76.4mm) wide, 6.6inches (167.2mm) tall, and 0.35inches (9mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy F42 5G, it weighs about 7.1oz (203g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.
