Design & Build

The Galaxy A35 5G stands out from its predecessor, the Galaxy A34 5G, by featuring a glass back instead of a plastic panel, giving the device a more premium look and feel. However, the glossy finish can attract fingerprint smudges, so a case is recommended.

The comfort of holding the Galaxy A35 5G is outstanding. Its design allows for easy one-handed use, and the slightly softer edges provide a better grip. Although the phone is a bit heavier at 209g compared to the Galaxy A34 5G’s 199g, the plastic frame does not detract from its overall quality. A new bump on the right side of the phone houses the volume rockers and power buttons, making them easy to locate by touch.
