Galaxy M40 Cons- 4 Reasons not to buy

Samsung Galaxy M40 is the fourth smartphone from Galaxy M series. Like Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30, Galaxy M40 too packs many amazing features for a budget Android phone. However, it has few demerits or features which user may not like it. Here is the list of Galaxy M40 cons based on our review.

Samsung Galaxy M40 Cons – 4 unexciting features

We have covered some of the amazing features of Galaxy M40 in our previous post. Also we have done a quick comparison of Galaxy M40 vs Galaxy A50. You can refer to the links given below for the same.

Here is the list of Galaxy M40 demerits according to our opinion.

Galaxy M40 Cons

LCD display panel instead of Super AMOLED screen

Galaxy M40 comes with 6.3-inch LCD FHD+ display and Widevine L1 certification. It provides excellent sharpness with clear text and videos. However, blacks are not as deep as AMOLED display. The OneUI systemwide night mode on Galaxy M30 or Galaxy A50 looks fantastic because of the AMOLED screen. Also the color preset options are available for AMOLED screen and currently not available for LCD panels from Samsung Galaxy phones.

3500 mAh battery

Galaxy M30 and Galaxy M20 had 5000 mAh battery. Even Galaxy A50 has 4000 mAh battery. Whereas Galaxy M40 has 3500 mAh battery. It lacks the advantage of having higher capacity battery which other M series phone had.

There is no 3.5mm headphone jack

If you have good quality earphone or headphones which are compatible with 3.5mm headphone jack, then either you need to buy new one or buy a adaptor. However, Samsung bundles USB-C earphone in the box.

Hybrid SIM card slot

This is another feature which is disappointing compared to other Galaxy M series phone or Galaxy A50. There is no dedicated microSD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy M40 is a good phone for the price. It has many unique features for the price segment. However, there are few features omitted compared to previous Galaxy M series phones. We feel Galaxy A50 offers better value considering these Galaxy M40 cons.
