It has become one of the mobiles to buy this year. Samsung Galaxy A53 5G seems to have it all for a fairly reasonable price. Undoubtedly one of Samsung’s most successful phones in recent months and that we have realized is quite loved by Computer Hoy readers.
But what can you expect from Samsung Galaxy A53 in 2023? Taking into account the large mid-range of Android mobiles to which it belongs, where Xiaomi, Oppo, realme, OnePlus and many other brands are competing, Is it worth buying this year?
We are going to break down the best features that can make it a mobile to take into account to buy it or buy it from another person during this 2023.
In Computer Today we have analyzed this Galaxy A53 and although we liked it, there is no perfect mobile, so it has elements that must be improved such as sound quality or ergonomics in its size.
Taking these details into account, we are going to try to answer the question: is it worth buying it in 2023?
In the range of 350 euros, it is a very good buy
Samsung keeps all the phones under the Galaxy A in the mid-range, some are better, some are worse, but this Samsung Galaxy A 53 5G is clearly somewhere in the middle of the mid-range.
The best thing about this mobile is that its price is always around 300 or 350 euros. Normally you can find the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage on sale for an average of 333 euro.
If you choose the version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the price begins to increase up to 400 euro.
Taking into account that it is a mobile with a very good AMOLED and 120 Hz screen with a size of 6.5 inches, good battery and general performance, it is not a bad price on offer.
Good performance even for gaming, but don’t expect much more
Samsung uses in this mobile a Exynos 1280 5nm processor, which is not bad for the mid-range of mobiles and that will undoubtedly give you all your games to pass the time. It will even handle performance-hungry games like shooters, but you can’t expect high-quality performance.
Even so, from our tests in the analysis, the performance is fair for your day to day and that it is similar to mobiles of a similar range, especially with competitive processors such as the Snapdragon 778G and 750G from Qualcomm.
Will you notice lag and slowness? Not unless you’re one of the people who leaves Chrome open with 3,000 tabs open.
A 64-megapixel camera that remains with very good quality
The camera system of the Samsung Galaxy A53 has a 64-megapixel f/1.8 main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 5-megapixel depth camera.
As in most mobiles of this type, the only cameras that count are the main one and the one that would complement it, in this case the ultra-wide angle. But it is on the main camera that you should focus, which offers good image quality in photos and 4K video at 30 FPS.
The problem comes when taking photos in low light or at night, where the quality is not very good. It will do its job, but these types of cameras, no matter how many megapixels they have, usually do not have their forte in night photography, even with the help of AI.
Samsung One UI is one of the best Android experiences of the moment
Although we are a big fan of the light and simple Android experience that Google launches on its Pixels, we cannot deny that Samsung is one of the Android mobile companies whose own interface, One UIIt is one of the best at the moment.
At the moment they are going for One UI 5, a version that follows part of the example of Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS in which less is more. It is a nice interface, with good icons, simple to use and that focuses above all on the user’s usability.
Personalization is one of its great strengths. From colors to widgets to elements like lock screen animations, One UI is designed to enhance your experience every day.
Samsung promises 4 years of updates
One of the advantages of buying a Galaxy A53, a mobile launched in 2022, is that it falls within Samsung’s commitment to provide more support for updates and security patches to its mobiles that are not high-end or premium.
In this case, Samsung has promised that it will keep the constant updates of this Galaxy A53 for 4 yearsso you ensure news at least until 2025. This means that you will not only have the current Android 13, but also Android 14 and Android 15not counting the security patches that usually come out every 2 or 3 months.
Conclusion: a good buy for about 300 euros
Samsung has a mobile phone at a very good price, with a very striking design because… it does not attract attention. We must highlight the sober and well-defined lines of this mobile, with a camera area that protrudes a few millimeters, but it turns out very well.
The technical characteristics are more or less what you can find in this type of mid-range mobile, there are no surprises in this regard, but if it had better performance we would surely be talking about one of the best mobiles of the year.
Still, if you manage to find this Galaxy A53 5G for a price on offer of about 300 to 340 euroswithout a doubt it can be a great investment and a good purchase for this year, the one that comes and the one that follows.
