Can I downgrade A525F to Android 11? When I bought this phone, it came with Android 12 factory preinstalled:)

No, if that's what it came with you are stuck with it short of using a custom ROM

@geotiktoka  Just to add to @antikythera 's post with custom roms and the like you do need to be aware of the implications and would void warranty.  see some information here https://customroms.net/faq 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

@geotiktoka: Yes, just to confirm that any unauthorised modifications to the software of your device would indeed void the warranty, so that course of action is best avoided.

I don't need custom rom, I just wanted to downgrade from One UI 4.1 to 3.1

So I can't downgrade to One UI 3.1? The version of the One UI 4.1 Im using is on Binary 4 and the One UI 3.1 version Im trying to downgrade to is Binary 4 too.

@geotiktoka: Sadly it isn't possible to revert to a previous Android version on an official capacity. By being on Android 12 you can be sure that your device is compatible with the latest apps and features, so it is recommended that you keep up to date with the latest software.

Thanks, but my friend has Galaxy A52 too with the same exact configuration(4/128) and he didn't update to Android 12 and when I compare, his phone is faster and smoother than my phone.

It may be an idea to see what can be done to your phone to improve your experience. These work for me. Clear System cache, download Good Guardians from Galaxy Store and run App Booster.

Yes you can downgrade by using odin and downloading official samsung firmware from samfw site where there have the official firmware you can downgrade using that method but it will involve wiping your phone
