Android version and market relevance

In January 2021 Honor company introduced its new smartphone Honor V40. This is a new model and 5G-network, which is running on 10.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 10 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

The case Honor V40 has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors.

The screen Honor V40 is made using the OLED technology, has a diagonal 6.72 inches and refresh rate 120 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 7.85 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 50 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Honor V40 has several modules (smartphones with dual selfie cameras): 16 MP Wide + TOF 3D camera. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

And write a few words about the performance of Honor V40. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 8-core processor Mediatek MT6889Z Dimensity 1000+.

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The Honor V40 has 8 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 128 GB, but you can choose the version with 256 GB. The manufacturer did not forget about the support of memory cards in the smartphone. Here you can install a card microSDXC.

Price for Honor V40: buy or not to buy?

Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If Honor V40 you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales Honor V40 began in January 2021. The manufacturer said the price of $615 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on Honor V40, we placed it in the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Buy Honor V40 you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the smartphone and hold it in your hands before buying.
