  • Heel goede prijs kwaliteit midrange smartphone

    Ik heb veel opzoekwerk gedaan naar een goede prijs kwaliteit midrange smartphone rond de 200€. Omdat de meeste smartphones toch maar 2jaar updates krijgen en de batterij het in de meeste gevallen ook niet langer mee gaat ga ik zeker geen half maandloon uitgeven. Ik was tussen drie modellen aan het twijfelen, de Moto g7 (249€), maar daar zijn de updates niet zeker van. De Xiaomi redmi note 7 (209€) maar daar was de software niet altijd even stabiel. En dus deze Samsung a40. En heb er nog geen seconde spijt van gehad ja er zijn er veel snellere, en er hebben er een grotere scherm maar dan krijg je u smartphone met moeite nog in u broekzak. De selfie camera met schermflits duurt wel heel lang om een foto te maken maar hij neemt eigenlijk prima selfies zonder flits bij weinig licht. Voor de prijs zeker een zeer goede smartphone

  • It's nice, it's a Samsung, although it's one of the cheaper ones, it does the job.

    The only complaints I really have are the fingerprint scanner and the cameras, they are acceptable, they aren't the worse I have seen, but for the Frontal Camera it's not great specially when you are in "normal" mode insted of "wide mode", I think it the normal mode is just a cropped version of the wide. There are 2 cameras in the back, normal and wide, wide has poor quality, and normal is decent.
    For the fingerprint sensor, its fast, but it's always complaining that you have your finger went or dirty, it's too demanding everytime, but pair it with face recognition (which isnt that safe but works well enough) and you'll unlock the phone everytime in no time.
    Besides that, it's a solid phone, It's pretty and it's a samsung so you can expect samsung quality. A very clean android skin with very nice features, it's fast, not the fastest but for a budget phone you really can't ask for much more, it's great! I'd recommend it.

  • Does Offer a Good Experience But For Price There is Better Choices

    It is an ok midrange that offer good daily use , Cameras are ok nothing special software of it need some touch , AI mode works well but photos take a second to capture not very fast , Video record only FHD 30fps... , One UI looks very good and Based in Android 9 , NFC , Facial Recognition , Size of Phone is very compact and like a 5.1" i had a old Xiaomi Mi5C case and fits on it perfectly , Fast Charge is like Brand say 0-90% around 1 hour

    A little scam

    I have had it for a year the first few months ok and then the battery told me I can't do anything. My screen broke with a fall from the middle of the knee I took it to half markt and after 3 months it stopped working like that because it felt like it

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
