We're testing an unconventional smartphone. This is a special variant Samsung Galaxy A40 Edition Seznam.cz. The phone was created by the cooperation of three companies in the Czech market. Samsung provided the phone, list of extensions in the form of their applications and Alza, in turn, the ability to exclusively buy the phone in their sales network. The result is a "Cell Phone from the List" which is a little "tramp" by itself. What else to expect when Jack Russel Krasty agrees to work with Alzak?

Knox kicks in

The entire solution looks similar to your private device (BYOD). An integral step before the first run is also inserting your Account List, in which the phone automatically registers all applications in the List. Updating a List profile may also occur in the background. If you uninstall the application from the List, it will be reinstalled the next time you update the profile.

The smartphone received 5.9 "Super AMOLED with a resolution of 2,340 × 1,080 pix, the U cutout occupied 25Mpx selfie.

The connector has everything you need – a 3.5mm connector and a USB-C connector, scan the fingerprint reader next to your dual camera (16 + 5 Mpx).
