About the Phone

The visually appealing Samsung Galaxy A40 tries to hold its own with its capable hardware. The phone has a few pros and cons:

 

Pros

  • The phone has a great design and feels good in the hand.
  • The phone comes with an AMOLED Display, which provides brilliant colour contrast.
  • The performance of the Samsung Exynos 7904 processor is quite capable of handling multiple apps.
  • The selfie camera of this phone is brilliant and can click colourful and bright selfies.

 

Cons

  • The buttons on the Samsung Galaxy A40 are not very ergonomically placed.
  • Despite being an AMOLED screen, the display is quite dark and loses out on brightness.
  • The Samsung Galaxy A40 does not have a powerful GPU which can handle graphics-intensive games.
  • The phone is fitted with a weak battery that may not be able to keep the phone for an entire day.
  • The low-light performance of the rear cameras is poor.

 

The Samsung Galaxy A40 does best for the price it comes in. It is not a gaming phone, so the phone tends to falter in that department. But for performing essential functions, this phone has suitable hardware to keep its value for money.
