As far gaming is concerned G35 has PowerVR GE8320 from Imagination running at 680MHz. HyperEngine of MediaTek adjusts CPU and GPU along with memory to draw the power. It is the same GPU used in Helio P35 chipset.
The Helio G25 has quite similar architecture with lower clock speeds. The CPU is running at 2.0GHz, and GPU is running 650 MHz. The biggest difference between both is G35 supports 1080p+ displays while the G25 can support only 720p+.
Camera features Multi-Frame Noise Reduction with ElS and Rolling Shutter Compensation. The chipset is capable of rendering bokeh with depth sensor being available.

As far as connectivity is concerned both Helio chipsets are equal. They support VoLTE and ViLTE on two 4G connections. The HyperEngine is able to switch between Wi-Fi and LTE in less than 13ms for fastest possible connection.
The support of Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 is available in both G35 and G25.
