Most folks who know anything about binoculars would never recommend a 24x25mm, as the magnification is too high for such a low aperture.
An 8x25mm "might" be acceptable, depending on the optical glass and the optical coatings. 25mm would be acceptable for bright daytime viewing, but, would definitely be at a loss for low light observations.

24x in such a tiny binocular would shake like crazy and require a monopod or tripod.

Zoom binoculars give you what is called "tunnel vision". The higher the magnification the narrower the Field of View.
Also, such high magnification in a small zoom is rarely useful because images degrade as you increase power.

What is it that you want to view with binoculars?
