I'm wondering about the front glass on this phone. I checked corning.com website and Samsung official but there is no mention about type of glass on A40. If they omitted the glass with protection then this phone is worth nothing. I don't care about plastic frame and back but Gorilla glass at least version 3 is a must, it is the standard for midrangers.
No Aod, camera pic mediocre, angle view pathetic only 5 mpx absolutely useless, no led, cpu incredible slowly absolutely full of flaws.
Excellent. FM radio, 3.5 jack, dimensions, NFC, Gallileo; wide cámera
Got it. So far, selfie camera is pretty soft, not much detail, also night pictures are pretty poor even for the price range. Speaker sound tinny, medium-high pitched without much room to breathe. Battery seems ok, screen is awesome, grip and sturdiness pretty good for a plastic body.
Too bad i didnt find the Galaxy A8 still on sale, would have been a much better choice (water-proof, better build quality, better speaker).
But yeah, for the price is ok, its cheap as it is for a brand new samsung.
sm4rt4ss, 17 Apr 2019My theory is, that they didn't implement the AOD in A40 because it would probably canibalize t... more100% agree. But problem with S10e - it has significantly fewer key-features than S10 with near the same price. In this price category I'd prefer P30 - it just slightly bigger than S10 but has much more reasonable value/price ratio.
BTW Just compared both A40 and S10e in store - A40 fits more comfortable in hands without all that glass so S10e is not my choice.
for this kind of screen size I guess MI 9 SE is still a better option. I was almost convinced to buy the A40 but the chipset, no AOD, no IP68 and no aptxHD are really let downs (Mi9SE has 6gb ram, also). even if it costed a little bit more, with this items I would considered buying it
do you think it would be better to get S8 over 2019 A series. I know the specs and more. i only wanna know if it is wise to get S8 which is 2017 OLD but still GOLD device. it at least gives us everything we expect from a phone . i wanna know your ideas about it .thanks a bunch
Samsung is getting tricky. last year you could buy A series with a ton of capabilities such as metal frame, ip68, glass back and more. this year we are getting A series with plastic (glastic back), no ip , no aluminum frame, no aod , even dated chips in 2019, what is happening to us . A series had famous quality back in the day, now quality is sacrificed. Price is also low but... A series were special, now practically replaced J series with U notch to boast about in 2019.
why this A40 won't be released in China,and have A40s instead? Shit huge screen A40s!
My theory is, that they didn't implement the AOD in A40 because it would probably canibalize the sales of S10e. Many costumers want this function on smaller screens, but Samsung doesn't want to lost profit on the higher models.
Aadrian, 16 Apr 2019Polished aluminium frame or just plastic fantastic?back is a plastic fantastic, but it looks good.
I can confirm also that there is no Always on Display :(
Does it have notification led?
Maybe they'll add AOD in a software update?
Its true no AOD not paying $340 without that thanks..
