Samsung Galaxy M53 5G design

The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G features a beautiful design. The phone comes with a glass back with frosted glass finish with plastic edges. There is a square-shaped quad-rear camera setup at the back, which protrudes from the back panel. While the camera module looks a bit shabby, the overall finish of the phone gives a more premium appeal, which is accentuated by its Olive Green colour. On the right side you get the volume rockers and the home screen button, which comes embedded with a fingerprint sensor and on the left you get the SIM card tray. At the bottom you get the speaker grille along with a USB Type-C port. Overall, the phone looks gorgeous and it is light and comfortable to hold. However, the back is a fingerprint magnet and it is difficult to keep it clean. (Image: Shweta Ganjoo/BGR India)


Samsung Galaxy M53 5G display

Coming to the display, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G comes with a 6.7-inch super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and Corning Gorilla 5 protection, which protects the phone from scratches. In usage, the phone features a bright and well lit display that doesn’t falter even under the bright Delhi sun. The colours are mostly on point but with a high degree of contrast, which makes the colour look a tad bit warmer than I would like them to be. But the overall experience is a comfortable one.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G camera

Talking about the camera, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G comes with a quad-rear camera setup consisting of a 108MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, a 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, it has a 32MP selfie camera. In usage, the phone has its hits and misses. Under daylight conditions, the phone camera balanced images with ample depth and clarity. The colours too are mostly on-point. However, there are times when the sensors tend to produce over-saturated colours, which brings clarity several notches down. Edge detection too has its hits and misses. On the contrary, the phone captures exceptionally detailed images in macro mode. However, the phone misses out on clarity in low-light conditions. On the other hand, the front camera captures sharp images when there is ambient light, but misses out on clarity in low-light conditions. (Image: Shweta Ganjoo/BGR India)


Samsung Galaxy M53 5G performance

In terms of performance, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset that is coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of space. It runs Android 12 OS with Samsung's OneUI 4.1 and it is backed by a 5,000mAh battery. In usage, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G offers a fairly smooth experience. It handles day-to-day grunt with ease without showing any signs of slowing down. It ships with the latest OS version, which is definitely a plus. However, there are a bunch of extra apps such as Dailyhunt, BYJU’s and Samsung Free among others, which can be easily deleted from the phone. Beyond that, the phone is quick to unlock the device using the fingerprint sensor and it easily lasts for a day in day-to-day usage. (Image: Shweta Ganjoo/BGR India)


Samsung Galaxy M53 5G verdict

If you are planning to buy a new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is easy to recommend. It has a gorgeous design and a bright display and it offers smooth performance and decent camera performance. The battery too is capable of handling day-to-day grunt easily. (Image: Shweta Ganjoo/BGR India)
