Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Design Review (Design)
After taking out it of the box, it looked like a high-end phone at first glance. After exploring for a little while, you will realize that it is not so expensive after all. Considering the price range in which it comes, I am happy with the design of this device.
There is a punch-hole cutout in the center of the phone’s display. The fingerprint sensor and volume rocker are given on the right side. The speaker grill and USB Type-C charging port are present at the bottom. In this, you will not find a 3.5mm headphone jack and stereo speakers. The weight of the phone is around 178 grams.
The back of the Galaxy M53 is made of polycarbonate. It comes with a glossy finish, due to which the phone feels very smooth. This makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand. The rear panel of the phone comes with a soft touch, which is nice to look at and feels good to touch. However, the rear side of the phone is very prone to fingerprints or smudges. In this case, it would be better to use the phone with the back cover.
The quad camera module has been given in a square shape on the left side of the upper part of the rear panel. The four corners of the camera module are slightly curved angles, which makes it appear to be attached to the back panel. The design is a bit different from the camera modules on most smartphones and you might even find it cool. The LED flashlight is placed at the bottom, outside the camera module. Samsung has introduced this phone in Mystic Green, Emerald Brown, and Deep Ocean Blue color options. We have used the Mystic Green color variant of this phone, which looks nice.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Display Review
The Galaxy S53 comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with rounded corners and a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The screen-to-body ratio is 83.6%, the refresh rate is 60 Hz, and the pixel density is 294 PPI. The display is bright enough to read comfortably outdoors, although not so bright that you can’t see details indoors. The colors are vibrant and accurate, and the viewing angles are good.
Its brightness, contrast, and viewing angles are all very good. Whether you use it indoors or outdoors in strong sunlight, you will still be able to see everything easily. The Adaptive Brightness feature adjusts the brightness of the display according to the lighting conditions. I really enjoyed watching videos and playing games on this phone’s screen. In my view, this is a phone with a great display in this price range.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Performance Review
MediaTek MT6592 chip has been included in this smartphone, which is considered to work better than the previous one. Along with this chip, a vapor cooling chamber has also been provided in the phone, which helps to keep the temperature of this device under control. The Samsung Galaxy M53 has up to 8GB of RAM, along with extra RAM (virtual memory) support. The phone does not get heated up even after running multiple applications simultaneously. In addition, I was able to edit and render many videos without any problems.
Now let’s talk about gaming. As we mentioned above that this phone comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and its display is great. In such a situation, I did not see any hindrance during gaming. In this, I played almost all types of games including Free Fire MAX, BGMI, WCC3, Candy Crush, and Asphalt 9: Legends. We didn’t face any hang or lagging issues during all the games. Everyone’s graphics also looked great and the game was running smoothly.
About 10-15% of the battery is spent on continuous gaming for half an hour or an hour. When this phone came to me for review, after playing a game for about an hour, I noticed that it heats up a bit more than normal. However, after the latest update from Samsung that came a few days ago, this problem has been reduced. Now the phone does not get too hot even during long gaming. In such a situation, I think that after the update, its performance has become better.
This Samsung phone works on OneUI 4.1 based on Android 12, which means you will get the experience of the latest OS. Samsung has promised that this phone will get OS updates for two years and security updates for 4 years. In such a situation, the OS experience of the users is expected to be good.
Its UI is very easy to use and smooth. However, many pre-installed apps will be available on the phone, which uses extra space in the phone. However, you can uninstall some of these apps. Overall, the performance of Galaxy M53 is good according to the segment.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Battery Review
.This Samsung phone has an internal memory of 32GB, which is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). The best thing I found about this phone was its battery. Once completely charged, its battery lasts for around 24 hours after regular usage.
I fully charged this phone after updating it to the latest version and played games for about 3 hours, watched two movies, edited and rendered a short video, watched an Instagram reel for a while, and the remaining calls, chatting, etc., for about 4 hours. After working so hard during the day, the battery had only 15% left at night. You can get an idea of how much power this phone offers.
The charging speed of this battery will depend on which charger you are charging it with. I charged this phone with a 33W charger, so it took more than an hour and 50 minutes to charge from 0 to 100%. However, it only supports 25W fast charging. In such a situation, if you charge it with a 25W charger, then it will take a little less time.
The charger is not available with Samsung Galaxy M53 5G. Instead, the company only provides a USB Type-C to Type-C cable. If you already have a Type-C charger, then you will be able to charge this phone. If it isn’t, you’ll need to buy the charging adapter separately. Samsung’s 25W charger costs around Rs 1200, which you will have to spend separately.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Back Camera Review
Samsung has given a 108MP primary camera in the Galaxy M53 5G, while a 64MP primary camera was given in the Galaxy M52 5G. However, the ultra wide-angle camera in M52 was 12MP and the upgraded version M53 has an ultra wide-angle camera of 8MP. Apart from these, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth camera are available in the Galaxy M53.
Its primary camera performs well in standard light conditions. The contrast of its pictures will be good. The colors of the photo look good and natural. Standard and portrait shots are good from the primary camera. In normal light, this phone clicks eye-catching pictures. However, I found something lacking in terms of light control balance. When you click the picture in more light, you will see that in most of the photos this phone is not able to balance the color.
The camera of this phone works well in low light. There will be a lack of details in low-light pictures. Talking about the ultra-wide angle lens, in my view, the camera of this phone is not able to capture the edges of wide pictures as well as it should.
Its depth sensor also works like an ultra-wide sensor. The macro sensor is great. When you will use the macro sensor of this phone, then you will see even the smallest thing in the clicked picture very clearly. Also, there will be no lack of color balance in the photo, nor brightness or contrast.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Front Camera Review
This phone has a 32MP front camera sensor for selfies and video calling. When I used the selfie camera in the light of day, its pictures were coming very well. The colors in the pictures were perfect and there was no dearth of detailing. At the same time, selfies taken at night or in low light can be called average.
Users will get a lot of fun filters in this phone for both front and back cameras, using which you can make your photo more beautiful. Apart from this, this phone also has a feature like Snapchat, through which you can make your pictures fun by choosing any of the templates to choose from and posting them on any social media platform.
Video recording of this phone
The camera of the new Samsung Galaxy S10e 5G phone can record videos up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (FPS). In daytime video recording, the colors are good, but the stabilization is not that good. At night, the video quality is better, but the stabilization is still not that great.
Fingerprint & Face Unlock & Speaker
In this phone, a fingerprint scanner has been placed above the power button, and I found it very easy to use. Apart from this, the face unlock feature has also been provided in this phone, which was not a problem to use at all. The company has not given stereo speakers, but its mono speakers were quite good. Loud and clear sounds come out of the phone’s speakers so the user won’t miss the stereo speaker much at all.
Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Price in India
The price of Galaxy M53 starts at Rs 26,999. This price is for the phone’s 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. At the same time, the price of the top variant of this phone with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage is Rs 28,499.
- great display
- powerful processor
- powerful battery
- software updates
- The charger is not found in the phone box
- Lots of pre-installed apps
- Poor camera performance in low-light
- average video recording
Galaxy M53 offers an excellent display, powerful battery, and good performance, although not quite as fast as the competition. The overall performance of this device is very good. However, if you’re looking for a phone that comes with a charger, then the 8GB RAM version is better. With the price difference between these two variants, it’s worth considering whether you really need the extra memory.
