About this deal

Replacement battery included with a screen repair, excluding Note 4, S5, J7 (2016), J5 (2016), J5 and J3 (2016) models. The design of the Samsung Galaxy A40 isn’t quite as impressive, but it’s still very reasonable for the price.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy A40 review | TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy A40 is one of a growing number of budget phones that give you a lot for your money, but it’s notable because it comes from Samsung, a company that’s more known for expensive handsets. The prices shown are our recommended repair prices for out of warranty screen replacement. This is a representative example of a reasonable repair cost for an out of warranty screen repair at any of our Authorised Service Centres. The price may change should any additional work be required to your device and you may be able to find a cheaper price by shopping around. It measures 144.3 x 69.0 x 7.9mm and we were easily able to hold and operate the phone in one hand during our time with it.

In practice, this puts it at the lower end of the mid-range, but that’s in line with its price and the phone still has the power to comfortably run most games or have multiple apps open at once. Camera So not only is it quite big, but it’s fairly high resolution, especially for the price, it’s also a decent quality and bright display, with the use of Super AMOLED ensuring contrast is better than you’d find on most LCD panels. The Samsung Galaxy A40 has a 5.9-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2220) display with a Super AMOLED panel producing punchy, bright visuals. Out of all of Samsung's new A series line-up, the Galaxy A40 is the easiest to hold in one hand as it's the shortest and narrowest of the bunch.

And with that aspect ratio it has a modern, wide-screen look. Samsung has also kept bezels to a minimum, delivering a roughly 85.5% screen-to-body ratio – a ratio which not so long ago would have been rare even on flagships. And the Samsung Galaxy A40 runs Android 9 Pie, so its software is up to date, though being a somewhat budget phone we wouldn’t count on this getting a fast update to Android Q when that lands later in 2019. Battery life, memory and connectivity And there’s a 25MP f/2.0 camera on the front. That’s a high megapixel count and it ensures selfies are sharp. Of course, megapixels aren’t everything, but this puts in a decent showing overall. There are also a number of modes and tools for this snapper, such as a beauty mode and AR emoji. Features Performance from the main lens is generally strong. Being just 5MP the wide-angle one is a bit less impressive, but it’s nice to have the option to fit more into a shot when needed. The Samsung Galaxy A40 also has a number of scene settings, so whatever you’re snapping it can adjust the settings accordingly. Spend more and you can get a sharper screen of course, and while this is good quality for the money it’s not a match for the display on, say, the iPhone XS, but it’s as good as we could have hoped for at the price. DesignAs noted above, there’s a high screen-to-body ratio. This is achieved by just having a slim bezel below the display and a tiny notch at the top, and it ensures the phone is more manageable in the hand than you might expect a handset with a 5.9-inch screen to be, though those with smaller hands will still have to employ both to use it comfortably. The Samsung Galaxy A40 has a 5.9-inch 1080 x 2340 Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of around 437 pixels per inch and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
