Samsung Galaxy A53 5G- Introduction

There are a few positive changes in Samsung Galaxy A53, one of them is a larger battery. This phone has a 5000mAh battery that its predecessor doesn’t have. Also, the phone contains Samsung’s own brand new chipset-the Exynos 1280. The phone’s design is identical to the Samsung Galaxy A52s, but this phone has no 3.5mm audio jack.

This phone lacks Wi-Fi 6 support and offers a 5.1 Bluetooth. The size of the phone is a bit smaller than the previous ones. The Samsung Galaxy A53 is a quite good package of features and specifications.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G- Pricing

The previous model of the phone (Samsung Galaxy A52s) was available for under Rs.40,000. While this new Samsung galaxy phone is available in two variants and almost in the same price range. Both have the same 128GB internal storage but different RAM.

The 6GB RAM variant with 128GB internal is available for Rs.34,499 and the one with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage is priced at Rs.35,999.


The frame and rear panel of the phone are made of polycarbonate, thus giving it a matte look. The design is identical to the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy A52s. The back panel is smooth and gives an exceptional look to the phone.

Although the A53 is a little smaller as compared to A52s but you couldn’t find a big difference. The dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy A53 are 159.9 x 75.1 x 8.4 mm. and it weighs 189gms. The body is designed in such a way that it is easy to hold the phone. Despite the glossiness, the phone still has a very good grip due to the back panel’s design. However, the overall look of the phone is attractive.

The SIM tray is shifted to the bottom of the phone. The SD card slot is just behind the first SIM card slot. Either you have a second SIM or an SD card, which is a disappointment for many.


The display size here in this phone is 6.50 inches with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It has a FullHD+ super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It was examined that the 120Hz refresh rate is more effective while streaming, or browsing web pages. However, it dropped to 60Hz while playing games, or using the camera. The display setup is taken from the previous phones (Galaxy A52s and Galaxy A52). The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G has a fullHD+ resolution of 1080X2400 pixels.

You can get more vibrant and saturated images with this OLED display. Also, you can get the benefit of colour uniformity which many phones with LCD screen type doesn’t offer.

Coming up on the camera setup, this phone has a similar camera setup to its predecessors. It has a quad rear camera setup, a 64-megapixel primary, 12-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro and 5-megapixel depth cameras. The Samsung galaxy A53 has a 32-megapixel selfie camera.

The pictures clicked using the phone were more saturated and details. The colour vibrance was so well and the pictures in daylight were quite impressive. Other than this, pictures have a type of bluish tone. You can take more clear and detailed selfies using the portrait mode.


This new Samsung Galaxy is built up with the company’s own brand new Exynos 1280 chipset. But, as per the points in Geekbench the Samsung Galaxy A52s is proved to be more powerful in terms of performance than its successor.

Also, it is a little disappointing when it comes to premium phones and we aren’t getting a good gaming experience with high graphics. And that’s what the case is in Samsung Galaxy A53. It was tested and the touch sampling rate wasn’t that much satisfying as a premium phone should have been.


The battery of the phone is improved. The predecessors had 4500mAh batteries while in the new A53 it is 5000mAh. And the phone’s battery can last up to two days on a single charge. The other drawback of this phone I feel is, that it lacks a charger. You need to buy the Samsung 25W TA-800 PD charger individually, which costs around 25$.


However, the new Samsung Galaxy A53 lacks a few things, but still, it is a reliable mid-range phone. Samsung itself is a popular and reliable brand.

There are a few things that could be better at a price of Rs.35000, such as the camera. As the pictures in daylight were good, but at night after even using the night mode, they were a bit blurry and noisy. The videos recorded in 4K resolution were not fully stabilised.

While, the benefit of this phone includes, a 4K video recording using cameras and at every zoom level. For finding your perfect phone we recommend you to read our Phone buying guide.
