Great replacement for my old Motorola MAXX2

bill7 - 6 hours ago

I'm not a power user, and didn't need "high-end" phone, but I also didn't want an underpowered "basic" phone either, as I tend to hang on to my phones for about 4-5 years. I was looking for a mid-level 5G phone, and this one hit the "sweet spot" for me! Battery life is wonderful (I go about 2-3 days between charges). Display is crisp; camera is very nice (with its 3 lenses, wide normal and telephoto); processor is very snappy. When browsing, web pages load lightning-fast, videos never stumble, audio quality is good. Maps load extremely quickly, and GPS works very well. Call quality is decent, and I especially like the fact that it still has a real 1/8" headphone jack for my old-school headsets. Menus are easy to navigate, and the system settings are super-customizable so that you can tailor the phone to behave pretty much however you like. The only "negative" so far is all the bloat-ware that comes pre-loaded, but you can easily uninstall a lot of it. I am thoroughly happy with this phone, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quality phone they can hang on to for a while.

Best phone for the Money!

Easy to use, fast, durable and works in the mountains were other phones fail. I am trying to order one for my husband but unfortunately they are on back order. I love this phone!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Brought the phone the first day it came out. Was a little hesitant because of no reviews. I love the phone . Had it for a month with no problems. It transferred all of my information from my previous phone in minutes. It’s fast,great pictures, Open the phone with my fingerprint. Calls are great . Maps, games, internet, voice recorder, emails, navigation, prints to my printer. All is great. I could go on and on.

Love this phone!

After 8 months of trying to decide what I wanted for a phone, I decided on this Samsung Galaxy A42. I absolutely love it! It's everything and a lot more of what I wanted.
