Redd, 15 Aug 2019Yeah lame battery lifeGoing from 100% to 50% in one day with five hours of screen-on time. I mainly surf the web and listen to music. So...
I would always take better battery time over phone thinness, but in this case I wouldn't say it is lame or terrible.
more battery needed, 30 Apr 2019terrible battery time. is it really hard to make 1 mm thicker and give more juice?Yeah lame battery life

Kanani, 08 Aug 2019What about over heating guiz?Had an unlocked version of this phone a couple months now. Replaced my old S6 with this A40. This phone hasnt failed, locked up, overheated. Best phone I've ever owned. Battery charges quick, lasts all day through regular use. And the price I paid around 240.00 on Ebay was so worth it. Only hiccup was having to find the language setting, when it was already speaking Chinese. Lol.
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2019Which is better, this phone or the Samsung M40? Please check and advise.overall m40 and for internet browsing and better display a40
The Sampson galaxy a40 in blue is a nice looking phone and thought this was for me but unfortunately not, the cable is too short and the connection into the phone is awful it fits in both ways but only works one way round, they are penny pinchers to supply that my other phones have got a much better connector, the volume don't go up enough for me as I am a bit deaf ,the picture quality is no better than my cheap phone so not that impressed with this phone
Can anybody tell me that Samsung Galaxy A40 has AOD ( Always On Display) function , Slow Mo or not .Please Tell Me About That . Have A Nice Day ❤
Which is better, this phone or the Samsung M40? Please check and advise.
Love the phone so far.
Any tips on how to get the best out of the camera?
Is the stock app as good as Open Camera?
Is there anything in the settings I need to change to get the best photos?
Also, when it comes to sound via headphones, what are people finding are the best settings?
Have had the a40 for a few weeks, a great phone. Feels snappy, fluid and apps/games load and play without any issues so far. Beautiful big display in a small form factor which I really enjoy. Build is plastic but does not feel cheap or hollow, no creaks on the build and really love the rainbow Gradient effect. Camera is good so far but haven't taken laods of pics other then a couple of macro shots which turned out very well. A great phone.

I'm pretty upset with the new update i got. Is 9 june 2019 and i got a new notification update that say that the camera got new function, wide angle on selfie camera and the biggest one, SLOW MO camera. Guess what, a lie, theres no slow mo...
After agonizing over OnePlus 7 Pro and Xperia 1 for weeks, I decided both aren't what I'm looking for and I got this gem of a phone. I'm so glad I did! If Google releases a good Pixel 4 this fall I'll probably upgrade, but this phone has all I need in a very pleasant format. The screen is very nice, you get Dolby Atmos for headphones, two sim card slots and an SD card slot, face unlock, Android 9,a headphone jack... And a 3100mah battery.
Joenssen, 18 May 2019Actually Nokia 5.1 Plus offers similar or better performance, for a lot of cash less. True, it... more@Joenssen: Care to elaborate?
Street price for the Nokia 5.1 Plus is about 160€, the A40 with actual prices of about 210€ is certainly not double the price.
The A40 has better specs all around - except for a minor difference in CPU power.
Sure, the 5.1 Plus has Android One but Samsung isn't known for abandoning their phones early on, either.
Actually, since the Update to Android 9 was already a major one for the Nokia 5.1 Plus I wouldn't bet on it getting a second major update to Android 10.
Samsung has stuffed the A40 with a lot of goodies. In that price range of about 200€ I couldn't find a truly better phone (Pixel 3a is similiar with a much better camera but is way too expensive with its 400€ price).
Notebookcheck says that it has an imprecise and "weak" GPS module... true or not?
