If you are thinking to buy Galaxy M42 5G for gaming then you need to see some of the points I mention below
- Screen: The galaxy M42 has a super amoled screen with 60hz of refresh rate, but the screen is only 720p (HD+) which is low and you will see the difference in gaming. More was expected from Samsung at 20k Rupees because now a days you will get a FULL HD (1080p) display even near 10k. So this is bit disappointing. And you do not get any inbuilt screen recording feature which is important for some gamers and streamers.
- Processor: Galaxy M42 has a snapdragon 750g processor and it can handle games very easily, plus having low screen resolution will put less load on the processor. But its not worth it. Also you can get better processor in poco x3 pro at this price.
We can say Samsung Galaxy M42 is an Average smartphone for gaming, the processor is good but you need to compromise when it comes to screen resolution, So if you want to do extensive gaming Galaxy M42 is not the right choice for you.
Other than gaming it is a very good and well balanced smartphone with good features in budget range
