Galaxy M40

Samsung is definitely playing up the design card with the Galaxy M40. This is a great looking phone that brings a display hole to a whole new price point. The Infinity-O cutout is similar to what we’ve seen on the Honor View 20 and the Galaxy S10e and presents itself as yet another way to avoid a notch. The display itself looks great and the Full HD+ resolution looks tack-sharp on the 6.3-inch panel. It comes as no surprise that the Galaxy M40 is an incredibly comfortable phone to hold and use. This is a science that Samsung has got down pat. The ergonomics are great and the phone simply slips into your hand like few do in the price range. It helps that the phone weighs a mere 168 grams. On the flip side, it doesn’t look and feel quite as premium. The back of the Galaxy M40 is a fingerprint-magnet and you will find it nearly impossible to keep clean. The ultra-glossy finish reflects light from all angles and has an interesting-looking gradient pattern along the sides. It comes in two color variants – Midnight Blue and Seawater Blue, both of which have gradients of colors.
