Samsung Galaxy M53 Review

The M-series of the South Korean company Samsung received its new addition in early 2022. The model is called Galaxy M53 and has focused on the balance of technical characteristics and improved battery life. This gives him the potential to appeal to a large part of the audience.

Design

The look of the Galaxy M53 is not bad. It is rather standard for this price segment. Among its elements we can easily highlight the thin frames around the display, in the upper part of which a selfie camera is positioned in a round slot. On the back there is a block of cameras that does not extend above the body and this is good for the stability of the device while lying on the surface.

Samsung's designers have chosen a good set of colors and tried to preserve the ergonomics of the device. The back panel and pages are made of plastic. There is no protection against moisture, so be careful when using the Galaxy M53.

We recommend that you carry your smartphone in a protective case to keep it longer from scratches or breakage.

Display

Galaxy M53 has a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, which in addition to a satisfactory size, is also interesting enough in all other respects. For example, it has a good margin of brightness and modern resolution - 2400 x 1080 pixels. Exactly in the spirit of modernity, there is a built-in fingerprint scanner under the display. The picture is high quality, with natural colors - vibrant and bright.

An additional incentive to bet on this smartphone is the protective glass Gorilla Glass 5 placed on the screen. With it you can be sure of the long life of the Galaxy M53.

Productivity

At the heart of the Galaxy M53 is the Mediatek Dimensity 900 chip, with which you can count on smooth playback of all daily tasks, as well as the photo editor, heavier Android games and more. The Mali G68-MC4 video accelerator and a minimum of 6 GB of RAM are selected for it. The device is also available with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. No matter which modification you choose, you will be able to increase the storage for more photos, music and videos. Samsung has provided a separate memory card slot.

Finally, it should be noted that the chip and video accelerator are not characterized by overheating, high charge consumption and crashing. This means that you can expect decent battery life from the Galaxy M53.

Cameras

Galaxy M53 has a rear camera with great potential. We see a combination of 108-megapixel lens, 8-megapixel lens and two 2-megapixel sensors for bokeh and macro photos. The first two are wide-angle and you can count on modern group photos and panoramas.

Optical stabilization helps to realize the solid capabilities of the Galaxy M53's camera. However, Samsung has saved money on its quality and therefore in low light conditions you can expect a slight loss of detail, blur and noise. The daylight shots are much better.

The front camera of the Galaxy M53 is also wide-angle. It is single and 32 megapixel. With both it and the rear camera, you can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second.

In the camera application you will find standard shooting modes, as well as new solutions for maximum expression of the creative impulse. For example, you can delete unwanted subjects from your shots, make video calls by blurring the background around you, and bring old photos back to life with Photo Remaster.

Autonomous work

Galaxy M53 has a battery with a capacity that has become standard recently. 5000 mAh will be enough to charge the device for a day and a half - two. Fast charging technology provides 25 W of power, which will save you a lot of time waiting for the smartphone to recharge.

Conclusion

Galaxy M53 is a worthy representative of its price range. It brings the classic advantages of a Samsung device, quality workmanship, a huge screen and an interesting set of cameras. It also features loud and clear sound, support for contactless NFC payments, Android 12 operating system and work in 5G networks.

Pros:

  • Huge display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz
  • Good processor with good performance
  • Front and main cameras that record 4K videos
  • Large battery with 25W charging support
  • Fingerprint scanner located in a convenient place to use

Cons:

  • No optical image stabilizer
  • No 3.5 mm headphone jack
