Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for money. After replacing my s10 with a A42 5g I was expecting a down grade on features, not so. Screen resolution, sound and cameras on this phone are just as good, battery lasts a good two days for me, a high user. Only let down is the lack of wireless charge ability. We'll worth the money.
