Samsung just unveiled the new series today the Galaxy A40. This phone is easily among the best affordable compact phones. The Galaxy A40 also brings a bigger screen retaining a smaller footprint.
That display is a perfect middle ground between big and small at 5.9-inches with Super AMOLED panel that’s nicely pixel-rich at 1080x2340px and is surrounded by slim bezels and with a small notch. The small cutout in the screen houses a 25MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
The rear of the Samsung Galaxy A40 is where you’ll find two cameras, a single LED flash and the fingerprint scanner. The scanner works consistently and fast and is placed where you’d expect.
You get a main 16MP f/1.7 unit and a second 5MP f/2.2 ultra-wide unit that covers an equivalent of 12mm. Samsung phones there’s Auto HDR, a Scene Optimizer that detects scenes and attempts to bring out certain elements for a better photo, a Pro mode, Live Focus mode and even Hyperlapse.
