Samsung Galaxy A40

Samsung Galaxy A40 Black
Samsung is more than just a household name, they have a global reputation for providing some of the most advanced technology, and that includes mobile phones. Considered to be one of the top three mobile phone providers they have a vast following and are in tune with what their customers want. Their mobile phones span the whole market from expensive flagship handsets to more practical low budget phones. The A series sits near the top of their handset provision and offers customers a great range of choice that will not break the budget.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Design and Display

It is immediately evident that the Samsung Galaxy A40 has been created to appeal on a visual and functional level. It has been styled from plastic and glass and has a nice light feel that sits nicely in one hand and is easy to operate single-handedly. It is not as big as some of the handsets in the range but yet still provides an ice screen area that will appeal to many users. Although a plastic back phone offers more robustness than a glass back phone, we would always recommend that a case is used as there is nothing more frustrating than breaking your handset and having to wait for it to be repaired.

The first thing that strikes you about this phone is the stunning screen. There is no bezel around the outside, making it an infinity screen and with advancements in technology, the front-facing camera housing has been shrunk considerably and sits neatly in a teardrop design that does not detract when viewing the whole screen.

In terms of size, this is a 5.9-inch screen which still means it is a consideration for those users who like to stream movies or play online games. This is a super AMOLED screen that boasts an aspect ratio 19.5:9, a screen to body ratio of 85.5% and comes with 1080x2340 pixels making it perfect for many different roles.

When we look at the rear of the handset, you will see that the biometric fingerprint scanner has been located in the middle which is perfect for a natural grip when you pick up the phone. Over to one side is the housing for the dual camera and this is arranged vertically with the two lenses stacked neatly and the LED flash underneath. There is the usual Samsung logo branding, and the rest of the back is coloured plastic. Samsung is offering this phone in four different colours meaning you can choose from black, blue, white or coral.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Audio

If you are looking for a handset that offers a first-rate audio performance, then this could be the phone for you. In a quiet room, you will be able to enjoy a personal cinema performance when streaming movies; you will be able to make hands-free calls and listen to music. If you prefer to use headphones, you'll be delighted to note that they have included a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack which seems to be something of a dying trend. In this case, you have the choice between wired cans or wireless headphones.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Camera

This is a handset with a daul camera on the back; it also boasts some of Samsung’s most exceptional software meaning that you can take some very professional photographs by just pointing and clicking. The two lenses comprise a 16 MP, f/1.7, PDAF and a 5 MP, f/2.2, 12mm, (ultrawide). The LED flash supports your work, and the lenses are capable of panorama and HDR. For selfie lovers, the front-facing camera is a good size 25 megapixels, and both front and back can record video at 1080p@30fps.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Features & Performance

As you might expect from Samsung, they have gone with their favoured Exynos chipset, in this case, the Exynos 7885 which is ably supported by an Octa-core (2x1.8 GHz & 6x1.6 GHz) CPU. The handset comes running Android 9.0 Pie and features their proprietary One UI skin which creates the Samsung experience rather than the bog standard Android experience.

When it comes to memory, you get 64 GB on board, and if this is not sufficient for your needs, then you can add up to 512 GB more by taking advantage of the microSD slot. When combined that should be more than enough memory for most users.

This handset has a battery of 3100mAh which is more than enough to support the software and user experience. If you need to go out and about for a long day and have no access to chargers, then you need not worry. The Samsung Galaxy A40 has a good battery life and will see you through a heavy day of use and still get you back to the charger at night. This is a wired charging handset that works with superfast charging.


For users that are looking for a functional phone that comes with the knowledge and power from Samsung then this could be the perfect handsets for you. It is well-designed, packed with features and comes with a simply stunning price tag.
