Couldn't find your phone until I realized you meant Samsung Galaxy A42 5G. If you have Windows 10 you might try the free Your Phone app from the Microsoft Store. It has a lot of capabilities you might find useful.

I did a little research to explain your comment about long charge time for your phone. I compared it to my Samsung Galaxy S21 5G.

I see two reasons for your long charge time:
  • Larger than average battery
  • Small charger
These result in a 120 minute charge time for your phone compared to 73 minutes for my phone. Of course that is explained by my phone's smaller battery and larger charger.

On the positive side your phone does have a much longer battery life than mine. That means you should be able to go all day on a battery charge. I wish I could do that.

BTW, my phone didn't even come with a charger. I had to pay $20 extra for it.
