Samsung Galaxy A40 Review

The smallest in size of the Samsung A series mid-range line up is the A40. The phone has a 5.90-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080x2340 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9 compared to its siblings that all came with the 6 inch and higher screen size. Nevertheless, with its small size, the A40 device still has a pretty big screen display, it’s super easy to handle and has a nice feel in the hand. Samsung A40 is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 7885 processor which may not be the most powerful chipset but has a good performance when it comes to gaming. The device runs on Android 9 (pie) OS and has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage expandable up to 512GB with a memory card. Looking at the camera setup of the A40, we say it is on the average, as it comes with a 16MP primary camera plus 5MP ultra wide lens at the rear and a 25MP selfie lens which although, is enough to capture nice and clear images, however has limited capacity as it cannot be switched when recording videos and also does not come with a slow motion recording like its siblings. The battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy A40 isn’t bad, but isn’t great as well as it is powered by 3100 mAh battery and supports fast charging at 15W. Part of the downsides of the A40 is; it doesn’t come with a led notification light, always on display feature and it isn’t dust or water resistant. However it’s got good spec and features for a simple mid-range smartphone. Question is, is the Samsung Galaxy A40 worth buying considering its siblings have better spec and features?
