Key Takeaways

  • Samsung's Galaxy A35 is available in the US for $399.
  • The mid-range phone includes a large 120Hz screen and 5,000mAh battery.
  • Google's Pixel 7a may represent a good alternative.

Samsung enthusiasts in the US now have a more affordable option with the arrival of the Galaxy A35. 

The American model starts at $399 and will be available in lilac and navy blue colorways through Samsung as well as carriers and stores. The mid-range phone was available in other regions earlier this year.

Powered by the mid-tier Exynos 1380, as featured in last year’s Galaxy A54, the 5nm chipset is complemented by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage. It’s backed up by a 5,000mAh battery power supply. The 6.6-inch, 120Hz 1080p display is strong for the price class.

On the camera front, users will find a front-facing 13MP camera for selfies, with a triple offering on the back consisting of the 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 5MP macro camera. 

The Galaxy A35 runs on Android 14 with OneUI 6.1, but users won’t have access to Galaxy AI features. 

As with other A-series phones released this year, the Galaxy A35 supports Knox Vault for significant protection against hardware and software attacks. The security feature was previously reserved for high-end models like the Galaxy S family.

The Galaxy A35 faces stiff competition in the US from rivals, particularly Google’s soon-to-be-replaced Pixel 7a (on sale for $349 as of this writing). That device should offer better camera quality and Pixel-specific features. However, it may be a viable option if you prefer Samsung’s ecosystem or value a large, fast screen.
