Standout Features

The Standout Features on Samsung Galaxy A05 include:

  • Powerful 5,000mAh battery
  • Decent phone memory: 128GB 6GB RAM
  • Latest Android 13 OS
  • Decent main camera, 50MP + 2MP

Build and Design of Samsung Galaxy A05

The phone is available in Black, Silver and Light Green and comes in a sturdy frame with a linearly patterned backside. It is a beautiful, slim, sleek phone with a minimalistic, ergonomic design characteristic of most Samsung’s budget and mid-range smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy A05 measures 168.8 x 78.2 x 8.8 mm and weighs 195 g. It is not featherlight but reasonably light and slim enough to enable good handling when placed in the pocket or pulled out to make calls or text a message.

Samsung Galaxy A05 Display

It features a 6.7-inch PLS LCD, with an 82.1% screen-to-body ratio. Such a larger screen provides a platform to enjoy content and media consumption better than smaller screens. However, 720 x 1600 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~262 ppi density) resolution is lower and provides less quality user experience than 1080p resolution. Default refresh rate and resolution are functional, but limit your preferred or expected immersive experience when playing games and browsing through your gallery.

Camera Set-up

Capture the world from different angles. Cherish the photos you take with the powerful 50MP Main camera, the portraits taken with the 2MP Depth camera, and your favourite selfies with the 8MP Front camera.

Performance and Processing Power

Samsung Galaxy AO5 has a powerful octa-core Mediatek MT6769V/CZ Helio G85 processor that powers the phone, enables multitasking, and carries out key functions. Mali-G52 MC2 GPU installed on the handset enables you to effectively and seamlessly play low to mid-setting games without lags and stutters. Anchoring the handset is 128GB 6GB RAM phone memory, besides additional memory support via MicroSD. With 6GB of memory and 128GB internal storage, Galaxy A05 offers efficient performance for the task at hand.

Connectivity and Communication

Samsung Galaxy AO5 is 4G network-enabled, supporting 2G, 3G and 4G bands. You will enjoy decent uploading and downloading speeds of files with the handset.  Equally enjoy decent connectivity through:

  • Bluetooth:3, A2DP, LE
  • Internet: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct
  • USB: USB Type-C 2.0

A 3.5mm jack port is a great consideration for the handset, enabling you to connect to your favourite radio stations and enjoy hands-free music and entertainment on your wired headsets.

Battery and Power Management on Samsung Galaxy AO5

The 5,000mAh (typical) battery gives you more time to do what you love—streaming, sharing, gaming and more. And with up to 25W of Super-Fast Charging, Galaxy A05 gets back to full power quickly.

Verdict

Samsung Galaxy A05 is a great, affordable budget smartphone that will keep you going.

Despite low 720p resolution, no 4K video recording support, no 5G network connectivity and lacking custom UI, you will still find value for your money when it comes to:

  • Making and receiving quality calls
  • Large display for viewing content
  • Large battery with 24+ hours of use before the need to recharge
  • An audio jack plug in your wired headset and listen to your favourite shows and videos
