Samsung Galaxy A53, analysis: just buy a Xiaomi

Despite the fact that the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Z are the two ranges of smartphones that demonstrate the full potential of Samsung, the South Korean manufacturer also has an interesting catalog of mid-range mobiles, known as the Galaxy A These stand out for their balanced performance, striking design and additional features. Some of them even inherited the Galaxy S22. One of the most important models of this family, at least to date, is the Galaxy A53.

This new Samsung smartphone is, a priori, convincing. If we take a look at its main features, we see that the terminal is equipped with an octa-core processor and 6 GB of RAM, a 120 Hz screen, the latest version of Android, a quadruple main camera and a huge battery. Yes, these are very common features in mid-range smartphones – we already know how boring cell phones can be – but Samsung offers somewhat different features which, in fact, I’m reviewing throughout analysis.

However, there is one aspect that needs to be considered before even knowing what your screen looks like, how it works in design, or if your cameras deliver good results. It’s about the price. The Galaxy A 53 is on sale at 450 euros in its version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. For this price, I can’t help but think that there are smartphones from Xiaomi (like the Poco X3 Pro) or Realme (the Realme GT, for example) that are even cheaper and with similar specs or superior.

Now, is there any area in this Samsung smartphone that justifies its price or invites you to opt for this option over any other smartphone? Or is it better to put this model aside and share a Xiaomi?

Design and screen: a matter of colors

Samsung seems to focus this Galaxy A53 on young audiences, and the proof is their appearance. The smartphone has a continuous design compared to the Galaxy A52, with slightly rounded edges, a screen with few frames and a selfie camera in the upper area, and a polycarbonate back with a large photographic module.

Precisely, what I like the most in the design of the Samsung Galaxy A53 is its back, and they are the very successful pastel tones that the company has included in the different variants. The model we received in hypertextual to perform this analysis is blue, a color that is also present in its predecessor. It is a very punchy tone, which inevitably makes you turn the terminal to see it in more detail and which also forces you to carry it without a cover or, at most, with a transparent cover.

The blue of the back, on the other hand, goes very well with these frames – also made of polycarbonate – in a bright tone. Special mention to the orange tone in which it is also available. Again, very successful.

The front, as I mentioned, hardly has any frames, so its 6.5-inch screen is the protagonist. It’s a Super AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, a step up from its predecessor. The price is also adaptive. In other words, depending on certain factors, such as the content displayed on the screen or the battery level, the system is able to vary this frequency automatically.
