this phone was in 2019 okay for its price but please the chipset is absolute trash. Been using this phone for around 2 years now and the lag on things like scrolling through the web or just navigating in the menu often lags. It was a good phone for basic tasks but now it's getting old and unreliable. Still waiting for software support haven't got any update since December... no idea if it will ever get android 11 or one UI update still on 2.0. I can only imagine more lag with android 11 though

-pretty capable chipset, I tried A9 legends and ran fine at high settings 1080p.
-camera is more than enough for outdoor, indoor quality could have been better, but what can I expect from a 190 euro phone??? My old A5 2016 cost 300 euros and it could barely run any game at 720p, but the camera was much better, so you win some, you lose some.
-a perfectly reasonable 3.1Ah battery. Could have been better, but what can I expect? My s8 can barely hold half a day after 3 years, with 1440p and twice more power hungry gpu, and this one can get through a day, with location on and 4g (Vo-LTE) calling.
-lastly, the front glass is incredibly scratch resistant. After one year it barely has two scratches that aren't visible on the display, only in direct sunlight. my s8 deeply scratched on the first day just by putting it on the lap upside down. Huge thumbs up for GG3 instead of GG5.
It's an awesome phone for 6 months now. Only bad thing is battery which does not hold very long. I am not glued to my phone all the time. This said bit over priced at normal price, I got mine at bargain. Today could go for A51 5G phone, but for now this is my day machine. Screen could be even bigger, the track row on Deezer is very minimal, on A51 5G everything is so much bigger when tested. I think the battery is weak point here, otherwise ok.

GlenC, 02 Oct 2020There seems to be an over abundance of whiners on here moaning about the battery life. I'... moreHave you ever tried any other phone? If you think Galaxy A40 is good then you will find that other equally cheap phones are magically fantastic! Samsung phones are extremely overpriced!
Charlie, 14 Jan 2021I need some help. I'm pretty basic when is comes to technology and I don't really ca... moreHi Charlie! Had the exact problem with A40, not once but twice. I took it to an official Samsung service store, both times, and they fixed it in a couple days. Luckily it was still under warranty at the time so I didn't have to pay for anything. I recommend you do the same!
