Samsung Galaxy A40 Review

Score: 79.6 / 100

Samsung Galaxy A40 is a top-level Android phone released many years ago, which counts with a high-tech 1.8 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, a really big 5.9" screen, and two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back camera and a 25 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

This phone is slim and practical, being just 0.31" thick. This phone just has 5.69 inches long and 2.72 inches wide, but it's still able to fit a a 5.9" display. Samsung is offering the Samsung Galaxy A40 in lots of color variations: black, blue, coral and white. Regarding its design, the Samsung Galaxy A40 is majorly made of Plastic and Plastic . The A40 is much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size.

Samsung equipped the A40 with a high-tech 5.9 inches screen, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes everything look perfect.

This phone ships with an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU ticking at 1.8 GHz, included in the Exynos 7904 system chip and a great 4 GB of RAM memory. A great feature of this phone is the 64 GB big internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing you to install lots of applications, games, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage is left.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 16 MP back-facing camera and a 25 megapixels front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera has a maximum 1.7 aperture so it can shoot very nice pictures even in low light conditions. It also films Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 frames per second.

The A40 comes with a 3100 mAh high capacity Li - Polymer non-removable battery providing the A40 a marvelous battery duration. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to lose capacity, while with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new phone before that happens.

The A40 has wifi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) high bandwidth connection and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device has two Nano SIM cards so it's able to work with two different phone lines and even different carriers in the same cellphone.

The A40 also comes with a great numbre of cool features such as Fingerprint Scanner, Facial recognition to unlock, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you need this phone for work, want a gaming phone, want it mostly for internet broswing and social networks or you love taking pictures, you will probably be very pleased with it.
