Samsung Galaxy A325G Review

Preamble

Samsung definitely did a great job with the latest batch of Galaxy A phones. The Korean giant has clearly decided to focus on the officially best-selling line. The new “Awesome is for Everyone” tagline fits like a glove. Devices like the Galaxy A32, A52, and even the slightly unrelated A72 have that extra telephoto and bring enough value to the table.

Samsung has also developed 5G versions of the A52 and A32 to make it as trendy and attractive as possible. These 5G variants tend to target about the same price as the corresponding 4G. This inevitably means that there are some compromises to support processors with 5G support.We have already delved into the problem extensively Galaxy A52 5G And in each of those reviews, it’s a slight but still noticeable downgrade than the regular Galaxy A52. Now it’s time to do the same for the A32 5G. It suffers from a much worse downgrade on all accounts.

In fact, the Galaxy A325G is a completely different device than the Vanilla A32. The price was about the same, which was Samsung’s main goal, and that’s why the A325G comes with an LCD display instead of OLED. The low resolution HD + stuck at a refresh rate of 60Hz. In fact, the panels are so different that they even have a large 6.5-inch diagonal. The entire A32 5G is large in all dimensions, measuring 164.2 x 76.1 x 9.1 mm and tilting the scale at 205 grams. It weighs about 20 grams more than a regular A32 and still has the same 5,000mAh battery.

The camera department has also made some changes, including replacing the main camera with a lower resolution 48MP unit. Interestingly, however, the A32 5G adds a 2MP depth sensor on top of the Vanilla brothers. You can also do 4K @ 30fps video capture. The last interesting bit is thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 7 205G chipset on the Galaxy A325G. All-round upgrade of MediaTek Helio G80 in regular A32.

So it’s pretty clear how the budget was relocated to make the Galaxy A325G a reality. Now the question remains whether it’s worth downgrading to make room for a slightly better chipset with 5G connectivity.

Unpacking

As a budget offer, the Galaxy A325G naturally comes in a fairly plain box. A basic cardboard bottom piece with sleeves on top. You should definitely note that it puts pressure on the top of the sleeves above. Perhaps Samsung can do a little better for protection in transit. Even more positive, at least the A32 5G itself is tightly wrapped in plastic, including a thin layer attached directly to the plastic frame for added protection.

Speaking of protection or lack of it, the Galaxy A32 5G doesn’t have a pre-applied screen protector, and there’s no case inside the box. Both are common to low-priced phones from other manufacturers. Available are a basic 15W wall charger (9V @ 1.67A or 5V @ 2A) and a simple, fairly short USB Type-A-Type-C cable. Finally, it doesn’t use its own charging method here, so you don’t necessarily have to stick to the included cable to get the full 15W.
