First impressions of the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Upgrades in a smart manner

The Samsung Galaxy M series is becoming what the J series used to be. Adding phones following phones with important specifications and all at a competitive price. With the Galaxy M series, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer is definitely attempting to provide consumers with additional alternatives. Realme and Redmi have been pursuing this technique for some years. The Galaxy M53 5G, the latest edition to the Galaxy M series. It was introduced in India last week for an initial price of Rs 23,999, with a price range of Rs 25,999.

Samsung is definitely looking to compete with the likes of the OnePlus’ Nord series, Redmi’s Note series, and Realme’s number series with the Galaxy M series. Samsung has released numerous great phones in the Galaxy M series in recent months, and the new M53 5G joins that list.

Cameras are Improved

The Galaxy M53 5G improves on the Galaxy M52 5G, which was released last year, in modest but major ways. One of the most significant upgrades is in the camera section. For the first time in the Galaxy M series, a 108-megapixel sensor is combined with an 8-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel macro and depth sensor on the rear. On the front, a 32-megapixel selfie camera, identical to its predecessor, is present.

In terms of first impressions, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G takes reasonably clear photographs in bright sunlight. Even the depth sensor performs admirably. The macro, on the other hand, has difficulty taking a detailed photograph. As a result, that’s a bit of a letdown.

Selfies are attractive and do not need to be edited before being shared on social media. However, as an iPhone user used to the type of unique-looking photographs it takes. The front camera’s performance wasn’t that impressive. However, because most smartphone users enjoy applying filters to their images. The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G saves the time spent editing photos prior to sharing them on Instagram and Snapchat.

Performance and Battery

Another significant change is in the section on performance. The MediaTek 900 SoC, that also powers the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G, drives the Galaxy M53 5G. In terms of first impressions, the Samsung phone performs well, and navigating between apps is not slow at all. I have yet to see how the phone handles heavy use. It has up to 8GB of RAM as well as 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD card. The cherry on top is Google’s Android 12 software, which comes pre-installed with One UI 4.1. It’s good to notice that, unlike other phones in this price range from other companies. The phone doesn’t come with bloatware.

It comes with a 5000mAh battery that supports 25W rapid charging. Unfortunately, there is no adaptor included with this Samsung phone. Only a USB Type C charging cable, the handbook, and the phone are included in the retail package. Samsung no longer includes a charger or even headphones with its phones as a business policy because it “wants to minimise the impact its goods have on the environment.”

Design and Build

I believe the design might have been better. It appears to be a thinner and flatter variant of the Samsung Galaxy M33 5G’s younger sister. A square camera module at the rear houses four sensors, with an LED flash at the bottom of the configuration. The punch hole camera is on the front, with narrow bezels on three sides and a somewhat larger chin. It’s remarkable how well Samsung has managed to balance the phone’s total weight. Despite having a large battery, the phone feels quite light despite its somewhat wider form aspect.

People with little hands may find it uncomfortable to use the phone all day due to the larger screen and wider form factor. It comes with a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O as well as punch hole display. With a 120Hz refresh rate that shines brightly even in Delhi’s hot heat.

The Lowdown

In terms of design, Samsung looks to have reversed its position on the Galaxy M53. While the previous M53 had a thick and unwieldy body. The M53 has been drastically reduced, making it, in my view, the thinnest phone on the market at only 7.4mm. What’s even more surprising is that Samsung managed to squeeze a 5,000mAh battery inside the chassis while keeping the weight under 176g. Aside from its small shape, the Galaxy M53 has a standard look. With a matte-coated finish on the glass back panel as well as a matrix of quad cameras on the top-left.

The phone lacks a headphone jack and stereo speakers, both of which have become standard features in the M53’s price range. Nonetheless, a power button/fingerprint sensor combo is strategically situated on the device’s right side. Allowing my thumb to touch it without hyperextending. I can’t say the same about the volume rocker bar that sits directly above it. In the grand scheme of things, I really appreciate how comfortable the Galaxy M53 feels in my palm. Also, the clean design on the rear should appeal to minimalists.

Samsung and high-quality screens are inextricably linked. With a huge 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, the Galaxy M53 reaps the rewards. These capabilities used to be held only for Samsung’s flagship devices, so it’s nice to see them make their way down to the company’s more cheap offerings. If I had to grade the Galaxy M53’s viewing experience, I’d give it an 8/10 just because of the panel’s smoothness, vibrancy, and colour accuracy. AMOLED screens provide advantages such as optimal viewing angles, high contrast ratios, and deeper blacks that penetrate into the visual content.


With its Super AMOLED display at the helm, the Galaxy M53 is an easy suggestion for immersing yourself in a world of visual media. It’s not easy to dive into super processor intrinsic jobs like BGMI, but if your needs aren’t in the area of mobile gaming, the M53 won’t let you down. However, I disagree with the unneeded restriction of the chipset’s maximum performance. On the other hand, it’s a tiny price to pay for the device’s ultra-slim profile. The camera quality is excellent, at least in daylight, and the battery life is adequate, as is the software interface. If you’re looking for speed, Realme, iQOO, and other brands can help.
