The Samsung Galaxy A05s is an upgrade from the A04s of last year. It comes with a plastic build with support for dual 4G SIM cards. The device weighs around 194 grams, and the design looks similar to the Samsung Galaxy A04s with three cameras at the back. It has a 6.7-inch PLS LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate, 1080p resolution, and 82% screen-to-body ratio.
The bezels around the display are noticeable, but it is expected since it’s a budget phone. It display is responsive to touch, and you might struggle to look at it under direct sunlight because its peak brightness is around 500 nits.
The phone runs on Android 13, and One UI 5 core is the user interface. It is powered by the Snapdragon 680 4G with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space. The Adreno 610 is the GPU; the Samsung Galaxy A05s can run some basic games and will lag with more demanding games.
It has a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP selfie camera and can only shoot 1080p videos. In good lighting conditions, you can expect the camera to deliver.
A side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the device with a 5000mAh battery supports 25 watts fast charging.
