Android version and market relevance

In March 2021 Huawei company introduced its new smartphone Huawei Mate 40E. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards 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If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 10 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.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 Huawei Mate 40E has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.).

The screen Huawei Mate 40E is made using the OLED technology, has a diagonal 6.5 inches and refresh rate 90 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 8.8 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 200 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 smartphone Huawei Mate 40E has two cameras: main camera (64 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide) and front-camera (13 MP UltraWide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then these are very good photos with high quality and detail. Look at the example of photos and videos taken on this smartphone.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Huawei Mate 40E on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset Kirin 990E 5G. RAM 8 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB, but there are still options for 256 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Huawei Mate 40E supports memory cards Nano Memory with the maximum volume 256 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Huawei Mate 40E: buy or not to buy?

In March 2021 begin sales of a new smartphone Huawei Mate 40E. The manufacturer said the price of $725 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a huge touch screen, a very cool main camera, a very high quality front camera, a very good battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.

As a result, in 2021 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
