Samsung Galaxy M40 Highlights
Samsung Galaxy M40 comes with a punch-hole front camera which is one of its main attractions. You can argue that the pop-up camera technology is more advanced and practical than the punch-hole design. We do agree with it. However, the punch-hole design is more uncommon and it is a great deal for the cost. The back side has a glossy finish and unique gradient style. Altogether, it gives a quite premium kind of first impression.
We have got a Full HD+ screen. It is not AMOLED like many other Samsung displays, which can be a bit disappointing for many. But the PLS TFT is better than one may expect. The display is also protected by Gorilla Glass which is much appreciated. 6.3″ screen size provides a good viewing experience and the phone feels quite light and comfortable in the hand.
Like the other M series smartphones, Galaxy M40 comes with an excellent camera setup. The triple back camera has a 32 MP main shooter, 8 MP 123° ultra wide-angle camera and 5 MP depth sensor. It can capture fabulous shots in daylight, indoor or semi-indoor and night conditions. Sharpness and color reproduction are especially remarkable. The bokeh, background blur or Samsung’s so-called live focus works very accurately. 16 MP front camera is a pretty decent deal. The back camera can shoot 4K or Ultra HD videos with very good stabilization. There is also a super slow-motion feature which is excellent for vloggers.
There is 15W fast charging option on this phone, which is great. But 3500 mAh battery capacity can sound like a bit on the lower side especially considering that it has a large Full HD+ display. However, Snapdragon 675 is a pretty efficient chipset and Samsung’s One UI is very well-optimized. There is 6 GB RAM and Adreno 612 GPU which makes this device a perfect choice for high-quality gaming at mid-range budget.
One of the exciting and new kinds of feature is SST or Screen Sound Technology. It means you can put your ear anywhere on the screen to listen to the other party while making a call. The voice from the other side comes out of the whole screen. There is Dolby Atmos sound technology, fast fingerprint sensor, face unlock etc. features in Samsung Galaxy M40. Overall, it is one of the better mid-range choices in 2019 in our opinion.
