Since the One UI 5.0 update, I haven’t noticed much difference in performance or battery life. The phone continues to work smoothly for me.

I find the A53 to be a downgrade in terms of processing power. The Snapdragon in the previous model outperforms the Exynos in this one. The lack of a headphone jack and charger at a higher price point is disappointing.

After watching several reviews, the A53 seems promising, especially the screen and battery life. However, the performance of the Exynos processor remains to be seen.
