Attractive but slow

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review


Don't dismiss this potential best-seller

Large, bright, colorful display ; Wide array of camera features

Not the best bang-for-buck

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review: Face value


We test how the latest mid-range Samsung phone stacks up against its predecessor and the rest of the competition.

Solid design ; Impressive display ; MicroSD card slot ; IP67 water and dust resistance ; Much better value than the Galaxy S22

No 3.5mm headphone socket ; The UI can stutter ; The ultrawide camera isn't as good as the primary

The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G hits all the important spec points, with a great design and display. There's no shortage of mid-range phones that provide a similar experience for less - and this is no big jump from the A52 - but there are still some very...

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review: slow close


Samsung's affordable 5G offering distils the Galaxy S22 down - but its great features are held hostage by lag

Stellar screen ; Capable cameras

So sluggish ; Cheaper rivals are smoother

Lag wreaks havok on this otherwise great smartphone, making it as frustrating as it is impressive

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review


On paper the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G looks like the mid-range phone to beat this year, but the painfully slow Exynos 1280 chipset holds it back.

Stylish design ; Great display ; Impressive cameras ; Excellent software support

Extremely sluggish performance ; Slow charging ; No charger included

The Galaxy A53 is a brilliant mid-range phone, with an excellent display, top camera, and software support bested only by Apple. But it suffers from one massive flaw: poor performance. At this price a phone shouldn't be so slow, and it makes the A53...

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review: A dramatic return to the mid-range


Can't afford the S22? The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is the next best thing

Great price ; Astonishing battery life ; Top-notch cameras

Realme 9 Pro Plus is (slightly) better value ; Display isn’t HDR-compliant

The Galaxy A53 5G is a remarkably well-rounded rival to this year’s high-priced flagships. If your sights are set on the Galaxy S22 but you don’t have the funds to buy one, then the A53 5G is every bit the next best thing.

Samsung Galaxy A53 Hands-On Philippines: Straightforward Refresh


Before we judge the Samsung Galaxy A53 as being practically similar to its predecessors in the Philippines, we check out the minor changes.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G hands-on review: our first impressions


We got hands-on time with Samsung's new mid-range phone, the A53 5G, ahead of its release. Read on for our first impressions and to see how it compares to the competition. Plus, we take a look at the upcoming A33 too.

Good specs for the price ; 120Hz display ; Solid processor ; Sleek design

Handset feels slightly cheap in places

We've only had a short time with the Samsung Galaxy A53 and A33 handsets, but the first impressions are good. We like what we've seen and the specs sheet looks more than promising.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G review: Safe, sensible, and a must-buy


The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G may not be that different from its predecessor, but it's still the go-to for anyone wanting a premium phone at a good price.

Pretty design IP67 water-resistance Camera is great for social media Vibrant screen Two-day battery life

Performance can be sluggish Not an upgrade to the A52 and A52S

“While it's not a massive upgrade to its predecessor, the Galaxy A53 5G is capable and pretty, comes with Samsung's assurance of quality, and is available at a reasonable price.”
