Two now i know there were so many great devices you know released last year of 2020 and still so many great phones being released this year of 2021, but still to this day, this day of april 3rd at 12, 36 p.m. I got ta be honest with you guys with all the great phones that are still being released. The galaxy z42 still remains my favorite device out of all of those great devices that have been released up to this day. I absolutely love this phone now i do got to be honest with you guys i don’t use this on. You know a daily basis. I don’t use it every day – and i have explained this in my original review with this device right here. I can’t really use it every single day because of the type of work that i do: it’s kind of a heavy labor job i’m, always outside doing work that could possibly damage my phone it’s not going to be nice to this phone. The type of work that i do, that’s why i don’t really risk you know taking it to work with me every single day. I did one time and that day that i decided to take this to work. It was just so windy. There was sand blowing everywhere. Getting sand on the inside display, thankfully i did have that screen protector on at that time. I currently don’t have it on. I actually took it off in front of camera and surprisingly, it’s actually held up very well.
I don’t have any micro scratching going on or anything like that. The display still looks like it is in great condition. Still responds very well still feels really good when using the device. So i don’t regret taking off that. You know. Pre installed screen protector one a bit. It still looks absolutely beautiful. Yes, that crease is still there it’s always going to be there i’m sure you know in future, foldable devices samsung will find a way to get rid of that crease, but yeah. This still remains my favorite device after six months and all these other great devices that i’ve had you know the privilege of using. I still love this phone right here still been running. Like a beast, i have no problems with performance. If you know it’s been getting the updates, you know to keep it up to date and keep it running good. The cameras are still good yeah. You know they’re, not the best. You know compared to something like my galaxy s21 ultra. I mean the cameras on this. You know device right here are boss. You cannot go wrong with the cameras on the galaxy s21 ultra, but that doesn’t mean that the cameras on this device are bad they’re going to get you, you know, good quality photos you’re going to get some. You know good quality video, even though they’re you know it’s not the best out of other devices like i said, but when you’re not you know, comparing it to other devices, putting them side by side or anything like that.
You can’t really tell that you know you have other cameras that are better than these ones. The cameras are going to do a good enough job to get you. Those photos that you want to get yeah. You don’t have that you know super zoom lens on this device or anything like that. But you know you do have you know your regular telephoto lens? You have your main lens wide angle lens, like i said, you’re going to get some great shots with either one of those and then again when it comes to video you’re, going to be able to get some good video as well. So i don’t have any complaints. You know, with the cameras on this device, they’ve been working out perfectly fine for me and if you know it’s a picture that i want to look really good, then i’ll just pull up my galaxy s21 ultra, but you’re not buying this device for the cameras. The cameras you know, they’re, just a plus you’re gon na get some good cameras with this foldable device. The reason you’re gon na buy. This is because you know it’s not only a phone, but you can also use it as a tablet. So it’s, not just a phone it’s, also a tablet, which is one thing. I absolutely love about this device. I’Ve been loving the big screen when it comes to gaming, i mean you cannot go wrong when gaming on this phone, just having this big display, it’s like a little tv in your hand, gaming has been very enjoyable on this device.
Not only that, but you know just watching content whether it be you know, youtube videos disney plus netflix, whatever it is uh that you watch on your phone, you can’t go wrong with watching it on this display right here i mean samsung makes the best displays in The game – i say this every single time samsung makes the best displays in the game. I mean the colors just pop they’re, nice and vibrant everything just looks so crisp and clear on this display. I mean you can’t go wrong with it and if you’re someone who’s into multitasking, you like doing you, know multiple things on your device hey boom. This is the device for you. You can do so much on this phone. You want to watch youtube and be able to write down notes at the exact same time. You can do that. You want to watch uh, maybe disney, plus or netflix or again another youtube, video and you know be able to search amazon or go to the play store go to your emails. You can literally do like three things at the same time or even more, if you throw up a pop up window over those things which you know you don’t really don’t need to be doing that many things on your phone, but the fact that it’s there is You know just super cool one of the main things that i love about. This phone is how many heads it turns.
I love showing this thing off. I’Ll be honest with you guys, that’s one of the things i love about this device, whether it’s, family or friends, or just even out in public, if i’m out at the store. I pull this thing out. I open it up. Heads are automatically turning. People want to know what phone is in my hand, they’re constantly asking me is that the samsung foldable device – literally, i am not kidding you guys, every single time i go out and i decide to pull out this phone, maybe i’m waiting in line at the store Or anything like that, if i pull this phone out, i open it up. I literally get someone that turns to me and say: hey is that that that foldable phone that folding phone from samsung, like yeah check it out, i go and you know fold it for them a couple times: they’re amazed and yeah. So when it comes to recommending this phone, because i get this question a lot asking if i recommend this phone, if it really comes down to pretty much how you live your lifestyle, i would say: if you’re living, you know a dangerous life you’re always outdoors. You know maybe hiking rock climbing or whatever it is. You could possibly damage your phone. I know my buddy gregos from gregor’s tv he’s been releasing videos about how he damaged his phone. He basically slipped. I believe he said he slipped and fell.
The phone was in his hands, it dropped and i think one of the sides of his screen pretty much broke so he’s been waiting to get it fixed, and so all it takes is basically a little slip on the floor as well, and for you to drop Your phone, you can possibly break this now. I did drop this twice, pretty good and honestly i’m, really surprised of how well it held up. I mean yeah. I got this case on it right here. This is a speaking case. I believe i’ll throw links down, and i also have other cases that i use from rinky as well. I have links down in the description below in case you want to. You, know pick one up for yourself or a screen protector for the front from white stone. Dome which works really good as well i’ll have all those links down in the description below but i’m surprised how well it’s actually held up over these past six months. Yeah. I know i said i don’t use it every single day, but i do use it. Every single weekend, and even when i get home from work, you know i’ll pull this phone out and start using it it’s. Just you know during the day when i’m at work is when i don’t have this device, so i don’t use it every single day. All day long but, like i said when i get home from work, i am using this phone pulling it out.
I just enjoying the heck out of it. I absolutely love this device and i am really surprised with how well this phone has held up over this past six months, because, honestly, i have been waiting for something bad to happen to this device, some kind of damage or just for that inside display just to Stop working or just for something to happen, and you know surprisingly, it’s been holding well knock on wood. I hope i’m, not jinxing myself here and i go. You know break it after i’m done shooting this video, but i have been enjoying this phone performance has been great haven’t had any issues with performance at all still been running as if it’s brand new uh battery life is it’s. Okay, you know just like i said in my uh previous video that i did about the battery on this device. It’S not going to get you and you know until the next day, but it does get me through uh, the majority of my day. So i don’t really have to worry about throwing it on the charger you know throughout the day, but once we start getting into the night i’m not gon na make it super super late into the night. I will have to throw it on the charger. If i do want to make it later into the night and then possibly the next day, but it’s getting me through the majority of my day, which you know was to be expected, because i mean you need to power, this big display running 120 hertz at full Resolution so it is going to eat up quite a bit of battery, especially if you’re doing a lot of multitasking – and you know just watching a lot of content or maybe doing a lot of gaming on this one.
Yeah it’s going to eat up the battery. But for the most part the battery does, you know, get you the through the majority of the day, at least for me, with my experience that’s, what we’re talking about here my experience with this device right here, like i said, i’ve, been enjoying it yeah it’s, not The perfect phone, of course you know no phone is perfect and there’s only room for improvements. Here i mean it’s already a great device so really curious to see what samsung’s gon na do. You know with the next upcoming fold super excited for that really really curious to see what’s gon na happen with that this phone is currently the price actually just dropped. I believe it was yesterday or two days ago, the price just dropped on this phone, so it’s now going for 18 or 17 99.99. So around 1800 bucks for this device, which i think is a great deal, especially if you have something to trade in you – can get this for pretty much as much as a galaxy s21 ultra. If you do have a good trade in so yeah, i can definitely recommend this device. I think i kind of skipped that question when i asked it a little while ago, but, like i said, depending on your lifestyle, this is kind of you know. Like a luxury item, but if you’re into multitasking, you know you’re someone who uses, maybe your phone for business you’ve got a lot going on.
This is definitely perfect for that or if you just want something cool to show off hey. This is the phone to get right here i mean you, don’t, see a lot of phones that can do this that go to a phone into a tablet back to a phone back to a tablet back to a phone i mean i can literally just sit here And fold and unfold this thing all day long, it is still that enjoyable and that satisfying so over this past six months, just to kind of keep this video short. This phone has definitely definitely been treating me right. I do not regret my purchase with this phone at all one bit. It still remains my favorite device out of all the phones that have been released up to this day, like i said april 3rd now, 12 46. p.m, still loving this phone it’s still a great looking device. You know, like i said, it’s held up well but it’s. Still it doesn’t look like it’s an outdated device. I mean how can it it’s a folding device? You don’t see this every single day, but, aside from the folding part, it still doesn’t look outdated. I mean it looks beautiful, especially in the mystic bronze color that i have here. I know i have a case on it right now, but once i take the case off, i mean the phone is just a lot. Slimmer without the case feels good in the hands, especially when you’re just using that front display, i mean one handed usage – is so easy on this because of how narrow it is yeah it’s, a little tall saw.
I know i don’t have the biggest hand. So i kind of have to reach up there if i’m, you know want to slide down the notification bar or anything like that, but this front display makes one handed usage so much easier and then, of course, when you want to go bigger boom, you open it Up like that, and then you you know, you’ll have to use two hands or you can just kind of use, one to kind of you know scroll back and forth or whatever it is like that or you know tap on whatever’s down here on the right corner Or left corner, if you’re left handed, but overall six months later, keep it short again. I know i’m, just rambling on right now, still loving this device, absolutely love it. I can absolutely recommend it, especially for the price that it is going for right now, get it. You know use a good trade in and get this device and then, when the new one comes out, you can use this as your trade in for that one as well, but y’all, let me know what you think down in the comment sections below. I know there’s, probably something that i forgot to talk about when it comes to this device. This is just all you know, based off of my experience, my thoughts on this. You know six months later, i’ve been absolutely loving. It, like i said, it’s, not the perfect device yet could use some work here and there yeah, i wouldn’t mind some.
You know better cameras on this device. I also wouldn’t mind an sd card slot which we don’t have, and i also wouldn’t mind a headphone jack. I know the headphone jack’s dead yeah. I know you know they’ve been taking it out. You know on so many devices. Now you haven’t seen it in a while, except for some of the cheaper devices, but you know i wouldn’t mind seeing that on this device and the speakers are amazing. I don’t think i changed the speakers. I mean they can only get better from here. They sound really really good, especially when watching content or if you’re, just listening to music. You have the phone there you’re not going to be disappointed with the speakers on this device. They get loud and they sound really really good, but can definitely recommend, like i said, especially if you can get a good trading deal on this device. I’Ll leave a link down in the description below, so you can go check one out for yourself. If you do find yourself interested, like, i said, pick one up for yourself, see how you like it, you know, i think you have what two weeks before the return date now not too long ago, they had a 100 day, buy and try. You can buy this and you have 100 days to you, know return it if you don’t end up liking it, but i believe that deal is now done. I hope you guys were able to take advantage of that deal, because i did talk about it on the channel, if not still take advantage of the new pricing of this device, and let me know what y’all think down in the comment section below.
If you do have one for yourself how’s, it been treating you over these past six months since it’s been released, i’d love to know. Let me know down in the comments you guys.
