Galaxy M40 by Samsung .. Buy or not ? Full Review

Samsung is a brand everyone knows. recently Samsung launched a new smartphone is M series Samsung galaxy M40. This device is launched to compete with Realme and Redmi. This phone looks very good on paper with specifications like Snapdragon 675 , Tripple rear camera , punch hole display . I bought this phone to test out the real review of M40.

Display :

So first start with Display which is the main highlight of this device. It got a 6.3 inches FHD+ infinity-O display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and screen density of 409 PPI. The display is not an AMOLED panel at this price this is little disappointment but everyone knows providing an AMOLED display with punch hole is very expensive and is not possible under 20000.IPS can be better here.

If you compare this display with other devices you will notice this display is as better as IPS and sometimes even better. That punch hole camera in the display looks beautiful and attraction spot for many people. so no issues with display.

Camera :

This device got tripple camera setup in rear {32MP + 8MP + 5MP }. Selfie camera is fixed focus 16MP. Selfie camera lack details and Samsung needs to work on front camera little bit. The camera till now is just average don’t expect much from camera right now. May be Samsung will be able to improve with future updates. Here are quick camera samples to get better idea about Camera.

Performance :

So the main topic everyone is waiting for is performance. The phone is equipped with mighty Snapdragon 675.This processor is very capable but due to some reasons not optimized by Samsung to get full out of this. In first update Game PUBG is working on HDR settings but after first update option is missing. The truth is there is little heating issue going on with this device Samsung might will fix it thorough updates.

The moment you start playing PUBG in HIGH settings the game is running butter smooth for 3-4 minutes just after that device starts heating and performance got restricted. There is FPS drop. Game is playable but not that smooth. If you are sitting near FAN or AC the performance will not going to disappoint you .You will get good frame rate but in case if you are playing in warm area then it will heat and restrict the performance .This is little that Samsung needs to Improve through updates. Otherwise processor is best in price range and day to day performance is phenomenal unexpected from Samsung device. There is no issue of lag and whatsoever. Hope Samsung fix this PUBG issue ass soon as possible with OTA updates.

Battery :

Galaxy M40 got 3500 mAh battery capacity. If you compare this with todays standards this is little less. You can get a full day support from this device with some low to medium usage.Battery is average .This comes with a Samsung adaptive fast charger and can be charged 0-100 in about 1.5 hour (without using).

User Interface :

This phone got Samsung One UI based on android pie 9. This is by far the best user interface you can get in a Samsung phone. Fast, Lag free , easy to use.

Storage :

Phone comes with 128 GB onboard storage. This phone also gets Dual sim hybrid slot, But this is not a problem as phone get plenty of storage and you hardly need to put any memory card , In case you need you have the option to put by sacrificing one sim card.

Conclusion :

Galaxy M40 is a good device with great processor and a punch hole display.I described every detail about the phone now its up to you whether you want to buy this or not.Samsung is providing updates and i hope they will do there best to optimize this device as soon as possible.
