Motorola G42 Review

There was no need for Motorola G42 because we already had the Motorola G52 at Rs 14500, so it doesn’t make any sense to launch the same device at Rs 13999.


The Motorola G42 comes with a 6.40-inches 60Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and 411 PPI density.

The front is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 while the frame and back are made out of plastic.


Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 is everywhere and Motorola has used the same processor in the Moto G42.

For those who don’t know, the Snapdragon 680 is a decent processor for normal use, don’t expect to play heavy games.


The Motorola G42 has 50MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and 2MP macro sensor while there is a 16MP selfie shooter on the front.

By the way, Motorola G52 also has the same camera setup, I mean, Motorola didn’t even change a single lens. For some reason, the Motorola G52 takes better images than the Moto G42.


Motorola has added a stereo speaker in a budget smartphone, yes, believe it or not, we have dual speakers on Motorola G42.

The Motorola G52 does have carrier aggregation support. Also, as this is a budget smartphone, Motorola has added a 3.5mm audio jack.

Battery Life

The Motorola G42 comes with a 5,000 mAh battery with 20W fast charging support.

Overall, the battery should last for the day because of the processor but in the end, it depends on you, and how you use your smartphone every day.
