Android version and market relevance

In August 2019 LG company introduced its new smartphone LG K40S. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 9 Pie.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 9 Pie already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.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 most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor LG K40S. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a drop-like cutout for a selfie camera. The case is protected from water and dust, you can safely use your smartphone in a few extreme situations (for example, during rain or in the bathroom, taking a shower). On the front side of the case is located huge IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.1″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 3 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone LG K40S has two cameras: main camera (13 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide) and front-camera (13 MP with a regular lens). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then it will be medium-quality photos and videos.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely an additional module. 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 LG K40S 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 Helio P22. RAM 2 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 3 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 32 GB. 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 LG K40S supports memory cards microSDXC. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for LG K40S: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone LG K40S got into our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and began to be sold in September 2019 at a price of $160. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. LG K40S is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
