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!

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!
Battery is bad, fingerprint doesn't work well, sometimes white no reason SIM doesn't work, insert SIM. Samsung never again
I need some help. I'm pretty basic when is comes to technology and I don't really care about all the new latest gadgets. I brought a Samsung A40 some time last year and as first it done what I needed it to do. I'm pretty bad at remembering to charge the phone but It has some form of life in it, if not fully charged most days.
Last night I put my phone on charge and woke up this morning to it being dead, I've tried plugging it into two different chargers and different plug sockets but it's not doing anything. It's not even showing the charging sign. I bought the phone on contract and I don't really want to buy a new one. How do I fix it and get it to start charging? As much as I hate to admit, I need my phone.
Can I fix it? or should I just lob it in the bin and bite the bullet and get a new one?
Worst phone ever made,it's laggy,frame drops,slow and camera is blurry, unfixable sim card problems and it overheats really easily
Using it for a year now. Phone was and is great. Never had a better Android phone from Samsung before. Great value for its price. Cameras are par for me.
I really recommend this phone, its execellent. Small and handy, good cameras and the UI is very smooth
December 2020 update fixed fingerprint issues, sadly battery issues are still not fixe, battery draining fast. If you havent updated your phone past may 2019 dont do it, updates are broken and will face issues, i didnt had battery problems prior 1st update. For those with updates do december update it will fix some issues. Cheers
Never seen such a good gadget before.
With strong battery and thin of it, the A40 is more than a phone.
Have it since it came out. Battery lasts for aout 2 days of normal usage (wifi on all day). Didn't crash or freeze. Double tap to wake up works a bit hard, but I always use the side button for that.
It was really bad phone that hurt my eyes when it came out, but props to Samsung for updating it frequently and lately it is whery snappy and usable. I ise it as a second phone but eith Android 10 and One UI 2.0 it can easily be your main phone! But you have to understand it is not gor gaming ;)
There seems to be an over abundance of whiners on here moaning about the battery life. I've got an A40, and the batter lasts for days on 'normal' usage. It's obvious that if you are constantly playing with the thing all the time, the battery will drain like everything else; it's not nuclear powered for god sakes!!!!! If you like playing games all the time, plug it into the mains, use some common sense!
I cannot fault mine, had it since last year, by far the best phone I've had, and I've had a few. It's got an excellent camera almost equal to the quality of my Nikon D850 DSLR.
The movie format is an excellent 1080 px too. With 4 gig of RAM, it's lightening fast too. Charging only takes an hour or so tops from a totally flat battery almost, so no waiting forever.
Sound quality is brilliant, you can use different presets for different types of music, or use the graphic equalizer to make a custom preset. The sound is crystal across all ranges (reproduced through a twin Bluetooth speaker system having compared it to the sounds settings on a graphic equalizer on a separates HiFi unit using the same song.
Also, if you think the sound quality is not right, try adjusting the graphic equalizer to suit your taste.
I think by reading many posts, a lot of people have just been making up stories to pull this phone down and give it a very bad review.
Its a fantastic phone, one of the best on the market in it's price bracket. Don't be fooled by silly negative reviews people.
Paul Oakley, 16 Apr 2020Honestly the worse phone I have ever had, dropped 5cm to the floor fully killing the screen. h... more5cm? Really!! Did you get a ruler out?? I don't believe this post for a second. Mine got knocked of a table onto a kitchen floor, nothing wrong with it. The table is 3 foot 'ish' in height.........
