Samsung Galaxy A35 5G Review

First Impression: Samsung Galaxy A35 5G — Not The Best, But Still Good

For what it's worth, this should be a great daily driver

Table of Contents

Samsung fans, rejoice, for the Samsung Galaxy A35 5G is finally out! With new colour choices and a much anticipated security upgrade, this smartphone is sure to change the way mid-range smartphones are viewed.

Read on to see what you can look forward to on the Galaxy A35 5G!

Design & Display

At first glance, the Samsung Galaxy A35 5G looks similar to the Galaxy S24. Upon second glance, you can see that there are some minute variations made to the phone to differentiate it from the other models. 

With the same straight edge as the Galaxy A55 5G and Galaxy S Series, Samsung has maintained a well-loved look to this phone.

The matte edge is comfortable to hold, and the Awesome Lilac provides some fun colour-shifting effects on the phone’s look. It’s also just as sleek-looking as the others, but what sets it apart is the raised bump on the edge where the power and volume buttons are. While this gives it a unique touch, it may not be to everyone's liking.

As for the display, it’s about as standard as it can get, with decent brightness and resolution to comfortably enjoy a nice multimedia session. The bigger screen is also a nice touch for those who like larger screens on their phone.


In terms of performance, the Galaxy A35 5G holds up decently. In our testing with Honkai Star Rail, we played the game on medium resolution and graphic settings, and that provided a relatively decent gaming experience with no lagging. The phone did slightly overheat just a little, but was nothing too major to note.

The biggest addition to the Galaxy A Series, including the Galaxy A35 5G, is Samsung Knox Vault, which adds an extra layer of security to your phone, especially to protect your sensitive information.

Samsung Knox Vault safeguards your encrypted data separately from the main operating system, which is a welcome addition for those who are concerned about keeping their details safe.


Lastly, the camera. It's a bit of a mixed bag for the Galaxy A35 5G. The cameras do perform adequately for a mid-range phone, especially the 50MP OIS camera. 

However, there's a distinct tendency to overexpose images, which can be a drawback for many, as it would require further editing to a certain extent. The good news is that the phone comes with Edit Suggestions, which should be able to help take some of the tediousness away. 

Overall, the camera setup is decent but doesn't particularly stand out in a crowded market.

There are still plenty of other features that we haven’t had the chance to explore on the Samsung Galaxy A35 5G, so do keep an eye out for the full review in the coming weeks!
