Samsung Galaxy M40 Review

Score: 85 / 100

Samsung Galaxy M40 is a totally amazing device launched some years ago, in 2019, counting with a large 6.3 inches screen, an extremely fast Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 2000 MHz, and two cameras, a 32 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 16 megapixels front side camera.

About its aspect, this phone is made of Plastic . Samsung has made a very good job making this cellphone weight just 5.93 ounces. This phone has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.31". Even though the M40 is only 6.11" long, it manages to contain a 6.3" screen. Samsung offers this phone in midnight blue and seawater blue.

This cellphone is equipped with a gorgeous 1080 x 2340 6.3" display, which makes everything look brightful and colorful.

This phone is powered by a high speed 2 GHz Octa-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SM6150 system chip with a great 6 GB RAM memory. A good advantage of this phone is its 128 GB huge internal memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, more than enough to install hundreds of applications without even thinking about running out of space.

This cellphone features wi-fi capability (and it can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) , a really fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G type) and 3G fast connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 32 megapixels back side camera and a 16 MP front side camera. this cellphone's back side camera lens has a f/1.7 aperture so it can take clear photographs even in low lighting environments. It is capable of filming videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 240 frames per second (8 times slower than regular videos).

The Samsung Galaxy M40 also includes a great numbre of useful characteristics as Fingerprint ID, Biometric facial recognition, NFC, Bluetooth (enables communication with other cellphones, computers and accessories), GPS Navigation and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone uses a 3500 mAh incredible non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with a great battery life. An issue to consider is that the M40's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, even though with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

No matter if you want it to take many photographs, are looking for a gaming phone, are looking for a cellphone for work or are looking for a social phone, you will probably be very pleased with it. When you buy this device you will also get Type-C earphones, 15W charger, Ejection pin , Data cable and User manual.
