Guy , 21 Sep 2019Hello friends. Can some of you please confirm if it's possible to change screen resolution ... moreSadly, resolution can't be changed. But, with regular use the battery will last througt the day easily!
Does this have any problems? Should i buy it? I like the specs and size such a good phone
Can some of you please confirm if it's possible to change screen resolution in A40 from 1080x2340 to lower, normal HD in order to preserve battery? ppi would still be cca 300 or less which is okayish for my purposes.
I know high end Samsung Galaxy S9, S10 can do it between HD, FHD and QHD.
Very important for me as I'm contemplating about smaller, cheaper device like A40, but I am also worried about battery longevity. If I could change screen resolution, that would be awesome.
Thank you very much and best of luck to everyone.
Mine stopped charging suddenly after only 6 weeks - it was 'repaired' by the supplier by means of a firmware update.
I have a problem with AdaptiveBrightnessGo, drain battery of my phone. What can i do? It's the first phone when i have this problem.
The trouble with most tech 'Reviews' is the geeks sit down with a coffee and look at the specs, whip themselves into a tech feeding frenzy, and think 'whaw....great specs...or not'
Then a 'real life' consumer gets hold of the phone and thinks...Jeeeees, this is cr*p....! I am one of those for the A40. The Forums are crammed with other 'real people' who are having similar problems.
Issues with Bluetooth - can't sync Bose speakers, can't sync Fitbit. Native Wi-Fi calling is dropping out with outgoing and incoming voice on BOTH sims. Speech quality on ear and main speaker is appalling, and lastly the phone network strength i.e. amplification of, is very poor too. This is comparing with a Sony XZ1 where ALL of the above is much, much better. So - after lots of fiddling I have at last decided the phone promises a lot on paper, but delivers little and is very POOR...as a phone.
For reference, I have done my best at a bit of research. I have actually returned the first A40, and got a replacement - no difference (to my embarrassment) . I have run one sim only - no change. I have replaced a sim with a new one - no change. I have changed the wi-fi router - no difference. I have made a call with Whats App - no difference. Poor sound and voice drop-out. So I conclude after all that - it is a bad phone - do not buy!
GSM Arena - PLEASE adjust your review process to start with the phone "as a phone performance" 1st, then look at other stuff!
is this phone have proximity & work properly on it
i mean when your phone ringing & you click on green to answer & after that you get close your phone to your ear
does it automatically the screen will off while your phone on your ear?
just like the other phone
i saw some users complain its not work properly & sometimes work & not work
Can anyone confirm or deny that while on bad reception the device takes ages to transition from 4g to 3g even crawling to no signal and needing to switch flight mode on-off to reconnect? I might upgrade a 2.8 year old a3 2017 if the above is not true. But still no ip68 daaamn. Then again I might keep my perfectly working A320fl

TAGok, 03 Sep 2019Looking forward for this phone launch in India. As per my research this is the only budget pho... moreSame dude, i've been searching for phones which is lightweight and easy for the one hand usage. Also dedicated micro sd card and headphone jack coz i got a ton of music and photos. I dont mind the quality of photo nowadays coz i dont upload. My best bet was the sony xperia xz1 compact but its now discontinued, i still buy a 2nd hand tho. Hopefully this phone will become available in the philippines.

Looking forward for this phone launch in India. As per my research this is the only budget phone available with width lesser than 70mm and has weight lesser than 150gm. As per the media reports this phone should get launched in India on 4th Sep.
