Size, appearance, amount of flash memory
The proximity sensor works poorly, I gave it under warranty 2 times, but the sense is zero. I had to buy a cover-book, so that at least somehow I could talk on the phone.
Functionally, the phone is completely satisfied, but there is one big BUT. These are distance sensor glitches. Samsung completely disappointed, I have been using this brand for a long time, before that there was a Galaxy A3-2016. there were no complaints, I changed it due to the fact that the battery stopped holding. A40 I do not recommend buying. are lounging with him
It works without brakes. The camera shoots well. The size.
Does not record the voice of the interlocutor. No firmware for Thailand.
You have to carry a bluetooth recorder with a headset with you. Convenience is low. Samsung fell in my eyes. Will it rise? I will try the root. Otherwise, sell to hell.
Amoled screen, normal percent for everyday use, nimble shell.
The camera, the meager functionality of the settings, goes far into warm colors, eternal overexposures in auto mode.
A terrible case, a thin plastic mask that bends from what you take in your hands, is scratched even from dust.
Interested in this phone for its compactness.
So. The case is glossy, thin plastic, which bends from the slightest pressure, due to the fact that it is glossy and without any protective spraying is scratched even by dust falling under the cover, after a month of use the phone looked worn out from scuffs, although from 1 day in the case and protective glass.

The camera is bad, even though aperture is 1.7, but in the evening the photos are very noisy, they are very uprooted, there is no way to adjust the shutter speed, in the daytime there is a poor exposure.
The battery using dark themes does not withstand active use, fast charging helps out. In the call mode, photos and rare use of software the day holds.
A good amoled screen with the setting of color rendering, in addition to a normal process and a smooth shell, it is pleasant to use.
Well, let’s move on to the interesting. After 4 months of using the phone, it stopped charging with fast charging and the computer stopped seeing it, i.e. only slow charging with a block from another phone worked. It was handed over to the DNS service. The employee who received it initially examined him, explained that the phone will go to the Samsung service center. A form was drawn up indicating the malfunction, the exact state of the phone (scuff, etc.) and sent. Be careful when compiling it and let them make an accurate description of all scuffs, their location and if there are scratches up to their size in mm. This will help in further controversial situations. So, my phone rode a little over 2 weeks. Arrived, went to pick up. Samsung indicated on the repair form that I, so, too often charged up and the charging module (or something like that) failed. Like, I have to put it in a frame and only answer calls. When examining the phone, it turned out that 5 scratches from 2 to 5-6 cm long appeared on it. I of course refused to take this miracle phone and asked the employee sc to whom to write the claim. To which he received an answer saying that it wasn’t right to write anything now, he would call back in a couple of days and tell what and how. I took a photo of the scratched phone and left. After 2 days, I was asked to exchange the phone for the same or different for the same amount. I chose the 2 option and safely forgot about it.
BUT my hearth flared up again when after 2 weeks in the morning they called me from the Samsung and decided to find out how I had to repair them. After they heard that the phone was scratched by ss and exchanged for another, the girl hastened to interrupt the conversation and not listen to my affiliates regarding the quality of their ss.
So I want to express gratitude to the CSN for the fact that they went to the meeting and without any claims they themselves offered to exchange the phone. And about Samsung, I got a bad opinion. So when buying an A40 (or their other plastic phone), this is in mind.
