Samsung’s Galaxy A series attracts the attention of consumers with its affordable products that offer a satisfactory experience and performance. When we look at the past years, models under this series such as Galaxy A23 or A24 have encountered remarkable user interest. We expect the Galaxy A25, one of the latest members of the series, to offer similar attention. Impressions and comments about this Android phone model, which has made remarkable progress in areas such as screen, processor and sound compared to its predecessors, are included in the Samsung Galaxy A25 review article.

Galaxy A25 review: Design

Samsung Galaxy A25 continues the design line that came to the Galaxy A series last year and was adopted by the A24. Here we have a phone that is a combination of plastic and glass. The plastic edge frame is given a good metal feel, and the power button section on the right edge, where the volume keys and fingerprint reader are located, is made a little more protruding and curved. The rest of the frame has a flat structure. Making the keys slightly curved helps them be found more easily by hand.

There is also a 6.5 inch screen on the front. The screen has a waterdrop-shaped notch. Or, as Samsung calls it, it has an Infinite U screen design. The screen frame is not very thick, but the thickness of the chin section at the bottom attracts attention. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 84.2 percent. The handset is placed very thinly above the front camera. The second speaker of the phone is also located here.

There is a USB-C port, speaker, microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom edge. There is a second speaker on the top edge. On the right edge, as we mentioned above, there are volume keys and a power button with a fingerprint reader. On the left edge, the tray that hosts the nano SIM card slot and microSD card slot is positioned. It is also possible to use two lines at the same time by inserting a SIM card into the microSD card slot.

When we look at the back, there is a vertical camera placement that has become an icon in Samsung’s phones. Besides the three cameras, we also see the LED flash. We mentioned that the back of the phone is made of plastic. Samsung has added a different atmosphere to this phone with the pattern consisting of reflections and small squares placed on the plastic surface. Especially when you hold the phone up to the light, the pattern in question becomes more visible.

The weight of the phone has increased by 2 grams compared to last year’s A24 model, at 197 grams. Although the thickness remains the same, the surface area has decreased slightly thanks to the narrower screen bezels. Frankly, the Galaxy A25 has a slightly more stylish and cooler appearance than its predecessor. At the same time, using the virtual keyboard provides both comfort and does not immediately cause a feeling of fatigue in long-term tasks such as typing and similar tasks.

Galaxy A25 review: Screen and Sound

The 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen of the Samsung Galaxy A25 also has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and also features Super AMOLED technology. In addition, there is a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. Although it is no different from the screen of its predecessor A24 in terms of these three elements, there is an important difference, which is that we have a screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Samsung is bringing the 120 Hz refresh rate to more phones and gradually making it a standard. There are two options in the display settings: Adaptive and Standard. If you choose Adaptive, the refresh rate of the screen is dynamically adjusted according to the content. The fluidity of transitions in the user interface or scrolling through web pages is above standard. On the other hand, it is possible to see the difference in maximum screen refresh rate in supporting games. This adds more fluidity to the games.

The A25’s large screen offers enough space to use two applications simultaneously in split windows. The space provided by the screen is satisfactory for navigating web pages or using social media applications comfortably. This screen is also successful when it comes to watching videos or playing games. As a result, the A25’s Super AMOLED display will manage to deliver the visual quality and experience you expect for any type of work, indoors or outdoors.

On the audio side, we see that the Galaxy A25 has two speakers, unlike the A24. As we mentioned above, there are two speakers located in the handset section, one on the bottom edge and the other on the front. The sound output levels of these speakers are almost the same, which is enough to achieve the stereo sound effect. On the other hand, the sound output intensity is also quite good. There is also some environmental impact. At the same time, no explosions or disturbing sounds are felt at maximum volume. The bass is not at very high levels either. Still, we have to say that we find the presence of a dual-speaker system pleasing for a phone of this setting.

On the other hand, the 3.5mm headphone jack located on the bottom edge will allow you to easily connect the wired headphone you want. However, Bluetooth headphones may be more preferred due to the comfort they provide. The presence of Bluetooth 5.3 support will enable quick and easy connection with the latest model headphones offering this technology. Let’s not forget to say that Samsung Galaxy Buds series headphones can also be at the forefront of choices as they offer practical connection and switching opportunities.

Galaxy A25 review: Performance and Battery

Samsung Galaxy A25, unlike last year’s model, comes with an Exynos 1280 processor. This 5nm-based processor contains 2 2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 and 6 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 CPU cores. Mali-G68 GPU is also included in this package. The phone has configurations with different RAM and storage space. The model we have has 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory. Thanks to the microSD card slot, you can further increase the storage space.

Galaxy A25 offers sufficient performance for daily tasks. Navigating the user interface, opening web pages, and opening games and applications all take a reasonable time. Of course, it doesn’t have the smoothness of higher-end flagship phones, it feels slower than them. However, the tools or applications you will use frequently, such as the internet browser, phone, WhatsApp, Instagram, camera, will work fine. Galaxy A25 meets expectations when it comes to gaming. You can also play games like PUBG Mobile fluently on this phone with low-level graphics settings. We think you will easily play many games that you download from Google Play Store or Galaxy Store.

On the battery side, Samsung Galaxy A25 has a very high capacity battery with 5000 mAh. This battery can last up to two days on a single charge under normal intensity use. There is 25W fast charging support, but a power adapter is not included in the box. In our experiment with the Samsung 25W power adapter we had, the battery reached 51 percent charge from 1 percent in just half an hour, while the phone was on. In about an hour and a half, the phone’s battery was fully charged. This shows that you will get a very satisfactory charging performance with a suitable power adapter and you will not have to depend on the power adapter.

Galaxy A25 review: Software

Android 14 and One UI 6 updates came to Samsung Galaxy A25 in recent weeks. Thus, owners of these phones have the opportunity to use the most up-to-date operating system. We can expect that this update support will not be limited, and at least Android 15 and One UI 7 updates will come to the device. One UI user interface offers a good experience on the big screen of Galaxy A25. There are various tools that allow you to use it with one hand, as well as the opportunity to easily use two applications on the same screen, in split windows. You can make your work easier by placing your frequently used applications or application groups in the sidebar.

The Galaxy A25, like other Samsung phones, comes preloaded with various Samsung, Google and Microsoft applications. On the other hand, applications such as Spotify, Facebook, Netflix are also installed. You can download more applications or games from Google Play Store or Galaxy Store applications.

On the security side, the Galaxy A25 provides the opportunity to bypass the locked screen practically, thanks to the fingerprint reader placed on the power button on the right edge. You can also benefit from facial recognition using the front camera. With various tools offered on the security and privacy side and Android’s built-in permission controls, Galaxy A25 allows you to easily see and manage what is happening on the phone.

Galaxy A25 review: Camera

Samsung Galaxy A25 has three rear cameras on the back, just like the A24. The resolution of the main camera is maintained at 50 megapixels. This camera has features such as f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus and optical image stabilization. The 2 megapixel, f/2.4 macro camera also remains. The ultra-wide camera has been changed. This camera with 8 megapixel resolution includes features such as f / 2.2 aperture and 120 degree viewing angle. The front camera also seems to have taken the camera from the Galaxy A24 with values ​​such as resolution and aperture. The 13-megapixel selfie camera has an f/2.2 aperture.

When we look at the photos taken with the Samsung Galaxy A25, we see that the photos are taken in sufficient light conditions and are satisfactory in terms of brightness and color vibrancy. In cloudy weather, the colors seem to move a little towards the colder side. In low light, noise and blurring remain low. Galaxy A25 also manages to give good results in close-up or portrait photos. On the other hand, thanks to the presence of the 50 megapixel camera, you can take good and high-resolution photos by zooming 2 times without sacrificing quality. We see that the 8 megapixel camera can also take clear and bright photos in sufficient light conditions. The 13-megapixel selfie camera on the front also manages to do a good job in different light conditions.

When we look at the video side, 4K video can be recorded with the rear camera. You can shoot video at 30fps frame rate at this resolution. It is possible to record at 30fps and 60fps at 1080p Full HD resolution. When shooting videos, especially in low light, the videos look a little dark. Apart from that, stability is good thanks to the optical image stabilization. Galaxy A25 also seems successful in terms of sound recording quality. You can record 1080p video with the front camera. We see that the front camera is also in a good position in terms of stability. Therefore, the camera system of the Galaxy A25 can meet the needs for video diaries and similar tasks.

Galaxy A25 review: Conclusion

Although the Samsung Galaxy A25 is similar to its predecessor A24 in many aspects, it is an important step forward with features such as minor touches in the design, increasing the refresh rate of the screen to 120Hz, performance update with the Exynos 1280 processor, 8 megapixel ultra-wide camera and 4K video recording opportunity. It also carries. We need to point out that it is more stylish than the A24 in terms of appearance. The 6.5 inch Full HD screen offers a good visual experience with the help of the 120 Hz refresh rate. You can get a working life of up to two days with its 5000 mAh capacity battery. One of the important pluses is that it comes with Android 14 and One UI 6.

The camera system of the Galaxy A25 is one of the areas where this entry-mid segment phone is successful. It’s a camera experience that’s worth the price. It meets expectations in terms of both photography and video shooting, and even exceeds the expected performance line.

If we look at Samsung’s online store, there seems to be a 2,000 TL difference between the Galaxy A24 and A25. The innovations seem to be worth the price difference.
