Say hello to what is going to be a lot of people’s next phone – the Samsung Galaxy A55. The Galaxy A5x model is usually Samsung’s second most popular and second most successful phone of the year, behind the year’s Galaxy S Ultra model.

The unboxing is a quick affair – Galaxy A55 ships with a SIM tool and a USB cable. You’d have to supply your own charger and case.

The Galaxy A35 is arguably more similar to the Galaxy A55 than any of its predecessors. This year, they match screens, batteries, and have similar camera systems. But the Galaxy A55 has an advantage in a few key areas.

For starters, it has a faster and more efficient 4nm Exynos 1480 chipset. There’s also the better ultrawide angle camera.

But more than anything else, it’s the build quality that makes the difference. While the Galaxy A35 has as plastic frame and unconfirmed glass on the back, the Galaxy A55 has a metal frame with a nice grooved texture and Gorilla Glass Victus+ on both sides.

The Galaxy A55 is lovely to use. Its screen is bright and responsive, we love One UI 6.1 under Android 14, and there’s a solid upmarket feel to the phone, thanks to its grooved flat frame and glass panels. It’s not inconceivable that you’d fool people into thinking you’ve got a Galaxy S24+.

Now off we go to review it – stay tuned for our findings!
