Summary Samsung A53 5G

This Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is like the Galaxy A52s 5G however it has aspects of design from its brand new Galaxy S22 series. It is fortunate that Samsung still has the older A53’s IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, which makes it stand out among the others.

The latest Exynos 1280 SoC offers budget performance, which means anyone looking for a great gaming phone must search elsewhere. Samsung’s Galaxy A53 5G Galaxy A53 5G borrows most of its hardware including camera parts, from the Samsung Galaxy A52s.

The camera’s performance is excellent in daylight, but it is average in low-light conditions. The video quality is good but is below average in low-light conditions.

The battery’s capacity is 5,000mAh, which lasts for two days of casual use. Samsung doesn’t come with an in-box charger however the phone can support 25W rapid charging. Charge speeds are slow contrasted with other phones.
