Samsung Galaxy M53 5G review: Good specs, but is that enough?

With regards to smartphones and pricing, everybody has an opinion. X model is overpriced, why will somebody pay Rs 30,000 for telephones from Y, you get the purpose. One model that sometimes will get accused of ‘overpricing’ its telephones is Samsung. However this ‘elevated pricing’ is one thing that’s going down throughout the board in India’s smartphone market. In reality, as the newest report from information agency IDC reveals, provides are tight for the low-end section, and there’s rising inflation resulting in elevated costs for gadgets.

So the place does the Galaxy M53 5G slot in right here? Properly, this can be a cellphone priced at Rs 26,499 and aimed toward a person who doesn’t thoughts paying that additional premium however expects a very good digicam, show, and efficiency. And on paper, the Galaxy M53 has all the suitable specs; a 108MP digicam, MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 chipset and a 120Hz show. However is all of this sufficient to justify the value? Let’s have a look.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G assessment: Show, design 

What I recognize in regards to the Samsung Galaxy M53 at first look is its slim profile. Sure, at 6.7-inches this can be a moderately tall cellphone, which is perhaps off-putting for some customers, however it’s not cumbersome. However the cellphone’s design isn’t one thing that strikes the needle very a lot and is boring.

The polycarbonate again has a shiny end, and it will get soiled very simply. A canopy is a should for this system since it’s a bit slippery. There’s no headphone jack right here, the digicam island is now a sq. form, in comparison with final 12 months’s rectangular one on the M52 5G. I’ve the inexperienced color variant for assessment, which isn’t dangerous, however then nothing extraordinary both.

The Galaxy M53 does play to Samsung’s strengths within the show division, at the very least. It has a 6.7-inch full HD+ AMOLED show and that is one display which is able to maintain most customers comfortable. It’s legible in brilliant daylight, if you’re utilizing this to observe reveals on apps corresponding to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, you may be comfortable. Even video games like Genshin Affect and Alto’s Odyssey look excellent on this massive display.

The show comes with a 120 Hz refresh fee, however you possibly can maintain it to 60 Hz as effectively. There’s no dynamic refresh fee assist right here. What’s unimpressive is the audio profile although. At this worth level, one expects extra on the audio entrance.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G assessment: Efficiency, battery 

The cellphone runs a 5G-enabled MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset. There’s a 6GB or 8GB RAM choice with 128GB storage. I’ve the 6GB RAM choice for assessment. Given the chipset, I didn’t anticipate any main efficiency points right here, and the M53 lived as much as the expectations. It does get heat if you end up operating a sport corresponding to Genshin Affect for a very long time, however in any other case, it handles every little thing else easily, be it gaming or your common duties. There have been a couple of moments the place I observed a lag, particularly when taking images in Evening mode. Nonetheless, at this worth level, any main drop in efficiency wouldn’t be acceptable.

The cellphone runs One UI 4.0 based mostly on Android 12. Samsung continues to pre-load many pointless apps corresponding to Bjyus, MX TakaTak, and many others, which is annoying as ever. However then it’s not the one participant responsible of doing this.

The Galaxy M53 5G will get a 5000mAh battery, which ought to give a day’s value even with heavy-duty utilization. Keep in mind there is no such thing as a charger within the field, although it helps 25W quick charging. I used a 22.5W charger with this and it took near 2 hours to get to 100 per cent.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Digicam 

Samsung has upgraded the digicam this time to 108MP in comparison with the 64MP from final 12 months’s M52. The principle digicam delivers sharp, detailed photos when used open air. The colors as at all times a bit extra saturated, however the particulars are properly preserved. The photographs are pleasing for many components when taken in a effectively mild setting.

The place the Galaxy M53 didn’t fare so effectively in my expertise was the Evening mode. It took a couple of photographs for the digicam to get the main focus proper after I tried taking an image in a low-light and barely difficult setting. Additionally with images taken indoors of individuals, the pores and skin tone isn’t fairly proper. Even with selfies, I felt the digicam was simply softening the small print an excessive amount of, even after I turned the wonder mode off.

Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Verdict 

The Galaxy M53 5G is a tool that delivers on most of its guarantees. The show, the efficiency, and the digicam are all acceptable. However given the value at which it’s working, nothing right here actually stands out. The competitors has cameras with comparable specs and plenty of of them do carry out higher than Galaxy M53 and can be found at a cheaper price.

This isn’t to say the Galaxy M53’s digicam is horrible, however moderately that as a reviewer you’re nonetheless searching for that one stand out level. At this specific worth level (Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000), Samsung faces competitors from the Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge which comes with 120W quick charging, and the V23 sequence, which has a extra fashionable design to call simply two. There’s additionally the Galaxy A53 5G which prices Rs 32,999 and may look like a greater decide given the design and general expertise. The issue for the Galaxy M53 5G is that competitors appears to be a tad extra interesting.
