 Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review

Samsung's Galaxy A53 5G is the latest model in the A series of Galaxy handsets, which is joined by its price-friendly sibling, the Galaxy A33 5G, in the latest lineup.
There are plenty of cameras, a big battery, a large screen, and a colorful array of options to keep those looking for a mid-range smartphone engaged. In addition to being feature-packed, the Galaxy A53 is also attractive to look at, which gives it a premium feel.
Samsung's A series is hugely popular, although it may not be as flashy or futuristic as the Galaxy S22 Ultra or Galaxy Z Fold 3. Reports cited by Counterpoint Research indicate that Samsung's A-series accounted for 58% of its total smartphone sales in 2021.
It would be a mistake to dismiss the Galaxy A53 5G as just another mid-range handset, as this would be disrespecting the entire A series.
We get to take a first look at what could be one of the best Samsung phones of 2022 when it comes to sales. We've got early access to Samsung Galaxy A53 5G before it starts shipping in 2022, so you can see what it's like to experience what could be one of the best Samsung phones of 2022.


  • Large phones like this are easier to handle due to their lightweight design
  • Coupled with premium features
Despite its large size, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is thinner than its predecessors, with dimensions of 159.9 x 74.7 x 8.1mm, allowing it to fit in one's hand comfortably while remaining relatively thin.
When you use the Galaxy A53 one-handed, it isn't easy to reach every corner with your thumb, and those with smaller hands might struggle without using both hands. However, the Galaxy A53 is surprisingly light.
Weighing 189g, it didn't feel as heavy to us as the Google Pixel 6 (207g) we had with us, which helped us handle its size. In addition to the volume rocker and power/lock key on the right side of the phone, the SIM tray is located on the bottom of the phone along with the USB-C port and speaker (one of the two on the A53).
In an attempt to give the device a premium feel and look, Samsung has wrapped the whole device in a metallic silver band. But the rear is clear plastic. I don't think it's a major problem, however, as the handset feels well made and solid overall.
As with the Oppo Find X5 Pro, the camera bump even blends nicely with the phone's body, but on the Galaxy A53, the bump is very slightly raised from the surface.
A Gorilla Glass 5 cover wraps around the display and the phone is rated IP67 dust and water-resistant, so it can survive a drop into a meter-deep pool for 30 minutes.
We had the pleasure of testing out the subtle, yet stylish blue variation. In addition to the white, peach, and black finishes, we were also able to check out the black and white finishes


  • This display features a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with Infinity-O technology
  • with 120Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution
Despite its larger display, which occupies most of the front of the Galaxy A53, it features a slightly wider bezel along its bottom edge, a subtle hint that it isn't the slimmest of the top-tier S series phones.
Infinity-O is Samsung's marketing term for its display that is often called a hole punch, or punch-hole display, and all it has on the front is a small selfie camera tucked into the screen.
There is no flagship resolution here, but Samsung has included a more premium feature - a 120Hz refresh rate - to make the A53 feel more premium.
The display on the Galaxy A53 should be able to keep up with the action without any judder. And whether you're scrolling social media or playing the latest game, the display should be able to keep up with the action without any judder.
In addition to its SuperAMOLED display, the A53 offers up to 800 nits of brightness, which makes it visible outside, though there wasn't much sun when we got hands-on with the device.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review


The days when midrange phones would pack one or maybe two cameras without much fanfare are gone; now, if you want to compete, you need plenty of photography features, and the Galaxy A53 doesn't let you down. Using the smooth, slightly raised camera bump on its back, it has a quad-camera system including a 64MP main camera joined by a 12MP ultra-wide, 5MP bokeh (to blur the background), and 5MP macro snapper. Additionally, there is a 32MP front-facing camera.
Even before we start exploring the additional features of the camera app, mobile photographers have plenty of options to choose from.
With the Galaxy A53, Samsung has improved night mode, which can capture 12 images in one frame for better low-light results. However, you'll have to wait until we review the phone to see how well it performs in low light.
Samsung has built Snapchat's popular filters directly into the A53's camera app, as well as an advanced portrait mode that offers blurred backgrounds and studio lighting. Users can play and capture a variety of fun options without having to open a Snapchat account to use the filters.
We thought the Galaxy A53's camera app had plenty of features, but we weren't blown away. During our testing, the shutter felt slightly slow and the macro camera did not particularly impress, but we will be reviewing it in full soon.

performance, specs, and battery life

Samsung claims its Galaxy A53 will last up to two days thanks to its large 5,000mAh battery.
Fast charging is also available, with the Galaxy A53 able to charge up to 50% in only 30 minutes with a 25W charger. This isn't the fastest charging method we have seen, so if you want to top up your phone faster, you may want to look elsewhere, but 50% in half an hour is still quite good.
Exynos 1280 is Samsung's first 5nm chipset to power an A-series device, and it powers the Galaxy A53. The device should perform better and consume less power. With the Exynos, Samsung claims that AI performance and GPU performance are up 31%, 43%, and 18% respectively, compared to the previous generation. In our short time with the Galaxy A53, we weren't able to test the Galaxy A53's ability to handle heavy gaming and robust apps. The phone's processor is backed by 6GB of memory, and the storage capacity is 128GB, which will provide plenty of room for apps, photos, and more.
If you need more space, the A53 will accommodate you, even though 128GB is the only amount of internal storage available. MicroSD cards up to 1TB can be used in the MicroSD slot on the Samsung Galaxy S5. In addition to RAM Plus, Samsung says the Galaxy A53 will improve multitasking. Using virtual memory for app performance can help you improve the performance of your app by selecting a chunk of your internal storage. If you're interested in finding out just how well RAM Plus works and how the Galaxy A53 performs in general, wait for our full review.

 price and release date

  • Price: $449.99 / £399 / $799 / Aus$899 for Samsung Galaxy A53.
  • There is just one RAM/storage configuration available.
  • The Samsung Galaxy A53 is slated for release on April 1.
Priced at $449.99 / £399 / AU$695, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G comes in three colors: gold, silver, and blue. With that, you get Samsung's only model - the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage - available in the UK and Australia. With its price tag, the Galaxy A53 compares with other 5G-ready midrange devices such as the Mi 11 Lite, the OnePlus Nord 2, the Moto G200, and the new iPhone SE 2022. On March 17, Samsung launched pre-orders for its Samsung Galaxy A53 5G, which will arrive on April 1 in the UK and Australia. It is still unclear when other countries will get the game, but we will update this article when we learn more.


Despite being a mid-range phone with a ton of features, the Samsung Galaxy A53 sits in a very crowded segment of the market. Even though Samsung's A-series doesn't exactly offer the best bang for the buck, the A53 represents a solid new chapter in the story.
