Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review: design

The Samsung Galaxy M53 was brought to India in two colors – Deep Ocean Blue and Mystique Green color. The version available with us is green. The phone is quite thin (7.4 mm) and quite light at 176 grams. A glossy finish is available on the back panel. The phone is not too bright to look at, but it feels comfortable and soft in the hand. Also, fingerprints or other marks are not easily visible on it.

The power button on the right side of the phone, where the fingerprint sensor and volume rocker are also located. On the left is the SIM tray slot. The phone has a microphone, Type-C port and speaker grill at the bottom end and a second microphone at the top end.

The phone has four cameras on the rear panel and the LED flash is located below it, it is not included in the rear camera module. The camera bump is also the same color as the back panel and seems to flow into the phone from all sides. At the bottom is the Samsung brand. When turned around, it faces a large display that houses the punch-hole selfie camera in the upper middle, and the bezels around it are quite thin.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy M53 is a relatively light phone with a nice but clean design.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review: display

The Galaxy M53 5G has a 6.7-inch Full HD + AMOLED display. Samsung often gives good AMOLED panels in their phones. The AMOLED display of this phone is also good for its price. The display colors look good and the screen looks comfortable even in the sun outside without irritating the eyes.

You also get 120Hz refresh rate in this phone with which apps run smoothly. In this you can go to settings and select the refresh rate in 120Hz and 60Hz. We ran it at 120Hz with all apps like phonepe, youtube and netflix running at 120Hz which consumes more battery.

The display is large and good even for video streaming applications, although there is no HDR support, but with Widevine L1 support, you can watch content in full HD.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review: productivity

The Galaxy M53 5G is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 chipset, which is based on the 6nm manufacturing process. It is an octa-core processor with two Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.4 GHz and the remaining six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. With this Mali G68 GPU, up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage are available.

The graphics were high and the frame rate was very high while playing Call of Duty which made the game run well. But as soon as we set the frame rate to Max, the graphics automatically switches to Low. After about 15-20 minutes of playing, there was no problem with the phone heating up.

With this chipset, almost all apps in the phone ran smoothly. We’ve also been streaming content for a long time and it’s no problem multitasking either.

At this price, this chipset gives you good performance. However, you can check out some of the benchmark test results below.

Talking about the software, here you also get OneUI 4.1 interface with Android 12. The phone also has a lot of bloatware. Many apps like Netflix, Youtube Music, Byju’s Learning app, Snapchat, MX Takatak, Prime Video, PhonePe, Amazon, Swiggy are pre-installed and Glance ads are also shown on lock screen. Although you can uninstall apps, but if you get a free (free) experience, that’s good. Other than that, the user interface is nice and simple.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review: camera

As mentioned earlier, one of the main features of this smartphone is its 108MP primary rear camera, which performs well here. With that, you get an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor.

Photos taken by the smartphone’s primary 108MP are good. They showed very good detail, dynamic range and accurate colors.

In addition, the wide-angle camera also delivers expectedly good results, although it reduces the detail of the photo, but this is common and understandable for phones of this price.

The macro and depth sensor given in the phone is not very good. There is no detail in the photo taken with the macro lens and it also shows the colors quite differently or shall we say boosts. Although getting this color in the picture is quite difficult even for expensive phones, so it is understandable in this price and category.

The Galaxy M53 5G has a 32MP selfie sensor, while many phones at this price only get a 16MP sensor.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review: battery

The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G has a 5000mAh battery. Currently, most phones come with a 5000mAh battery, but the battery backup on this phone is really good. The battery lasted a little over a day during our usage where we watched Netflix for a while, played games and used other apps for social media, WhatsApp, calls etc.

However, looking at the trend here, fast charging is a bit low. The phone supports 25W fast charging, charging it took about 1.5 hours with a charger available with us.

revisional judgmentShould you buy the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G?

The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is a mid-range phone with a starting price of Rs 26,499. Samsung phones now have a distinct identity, mainly due to their OneUI software. This phone comes with the advantages and disadvantages of Samsung. So his experience was also very familiar to us, which we think is good. If the customer has no preference for certain features and just needs a reliable mid-range phone, then he will surely like this phone.

The design of the phone is simple. It’s also the first Samsung-branded 108MP camera phone at this price point. Apart from that, the phone has features like good selfie sensor, powerful mid-range chipset, 120Hz AMOLED display, 5000mAh battery. The biggest downside we find is that the charging speed is slow and the charger is not included. Even if you buy a charger, it doesn’t charge as fast as we’ve become these days.
