I've had numerous phones before purchasing the A40, The best phone I've had was the Samsung Galaxy s9+ unill I got this A40 and I can honestly say it's as good as the s9+ if not better . I can't fault it in anyway it's a really good phone. The battery charges really quick ,battery life is good . I also like that it's dual sim , plus I'm really happy with the built in radio ,even the s9+ didn't have this which you would have thought it would have being a top end phone. In my opinion the A40 is a really good and great phone 5/5 I would give it as for price bargain. I paid £219.99 from Argos and if you purchase it before the 27th June you get £40 cash back ,so really the phone has only cost you £180. At that price were are you going to get a phone with all these specifications etc. So if your looking for a new phone in my opinion buy the A40 I would recommend it to anyone. Excellent phone.
This phone can dowload a pubg and ros , how many hours low bat this phone please answer
Why they put 25 mpx camera.. if 10y old nokia 5 mpx did better pictures... even you samsung??? Looks like only Xiaomi and Nokia did it well. (my opinion)
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2019better nokia 2.2 same size, and AOD pure android. NO. A40 far better: screen resolution, processore and more. jist compare them here in GSM and see how they are deiffrent.
Anonymous, 23 May 2019Phone doesn't have proximity sensor. If you go to *#0*# and then sensors there isn't proximit... moreCorrect. There is no proximity sensor. Your phone will unlock in your pocket when you put your finger on the fingerprint sensor. I suppose they use the camera for shutting of the screen when you make calls. Funny that no reviewer has noticed that so far..
Please to help me with my new Samsung Galaxy a40. In a sleeping mode, screen is waking, lights up without any reason and in 2 seconds go to sleep mode. Is it normal? I could not find to turn off that option. Thank you for answer!
Hamid33, 01 Jun 2019please somebody tell us your experience . how is battery life and overall performance, display... moreBattery can last 1 day or 2 days not heavy use (consider that this phone support fast charging 15w)
-performance fits this price range, for normal apps use use phone is fluid. Heavy gaming not recommended.
-display is just great.
-charging is really fast, included quick charge adapter in the box.
-size is a main selling point of this model
I wanted to get iphone se because of size, but after i saw this model it is instant buy.
GREAT JOB SAMSUNG!
Hamid33, 01 Jun 2019please somebody tell us your experience . how is battery life and overall performance, display... moreThe battery will last for a day with constant fiddling. Performance is good (note that I do not play games). Phone charges from 15% to 90% in an hour. Cameras are much better than on my OnePlus3. Display is great.

Also, turn on adaptive brightness and teach it to prefer lower display brightness when possible - default is IMHO quite bright.
Slyster, 29 May 2019Which one is better? Samsung galaxy A40 or Samsung galaxy A6. The main priority are photos.Not sure about the camera units themselves, but A6 has the old style camera UI where you have to select modes manually (do you want HDR? Sure, go to the menu to turn it on manually). A40 has the "new" style camera UI (same as S10) where you just point the camera at something and it automatically detects and adjust settings for you. (ie Is the image to bright? It will turn on auto-hdr without you doing anything).
Which is better? Well, it depends. Manual control can be nice. But the A40 camera is a lot easier to use.
would be good compact phone if only would have bigger battery, 5000mAh for this kind of high density pixels. right now no point to buy because due to weak battery need to carry powerbank with you, but pockets have limits. dont want to be guy whos pockets always fyll of trash.
Anonymous, 29 May 2019For price no AOD,. Mediocre battery your paying for compact really. Nothing jumps out better p... morePixel 3A is almost 2x the price here. So is the S10e, which would be the better choice imo, also keeping you in Samsung's fold.
