The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is part of the impressive A-series and shows that a feature-rich smartphone doesn't always have to cost a fortune. During our review, we saw that the 5G-capable mid-ranger is already quite future-proof, and pairing it with the right case will ensure it'll last even longer, should you choose to buy it.

As great as all of the cases detailed above are, my overall vote goes to Spigen's Rugged Armor. As it's made from lightweight TPU material, it doesn't add too much bulk to the Galaxy A42 5G, which is already quite heavy at around 6.8 ounces. The fact that it comes from a brand as reputed as Spigen also inspires confidence.

On the other hand, Samsung's S View Wallet is a great option for anyone who prefers official accessories. Being a first-party case, it offers flawless compatibility with the Galaxy A42 5G. The mini cutout on its top flap, which allows calls and notifications to be managed without opening the cover, only makes the overall package better.

When Rajat got his first PC—a Pentium III machine with 128MB of RAM and a 56kbps dial-up modem—back in 2001, he had little idea it would mark the beginning of a lifelong love affair with gadgets. That fascination, combined with a penchant for writing and editing, ultimately led to him becoming a technology journalist. Some of Rajat's other interests include Photography, Hand Lettering, and Digital Typography. He's also somewhat obsessed with wrist-worn timepieces, and appreciates a Casio just as much as a Jaeger-LeCoultre.
