Samsung is adding to its Galaxy M series with the launch of the Galaxy M53 5G. A lot of things have been done to this phone. It is the next generation of the Galaxy M52 5G, and it has some significant changes.
This new smartphone has a 108-megapixel primary rear camera, a Mediatek Dimensity 900 SoC, and a big 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen that looks great. It should be your first choice in the Rs. under the 30,000 price range. I tried this new smartphone out, and here are my first thoughts.
For the base model, it costs Rs. 26,499 and has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and costs Rs. 28,499. You can get Rs. 2,500 in cashback right away if you have an ICICI credit card and make an EMI payment.
Samsung sells the Galaxy M53 5G in two colors: Deep Ocean Blue and Mystique Green, both made by Samsung. For this review, I have the base version in Mystique Green, which is the color of this item. The phone comes in a small box, like the Galaxy S series phones, because it doesn’t come with a charger. You get the phone, a USB Type-C to Type-C cable, a tool to remove the SIM card, and some instructions in the box.
The Mystique Green finish was the first thing that caught my eye when I held the phone. It looks nice and isn’t very common in this price range, which should help the Galaxy M53 5G stand out. This is what people say: The 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen is also what makes the device unique.
Samsung calls this display an Infinity-O screen because it has a hole at the top for the 32-megapixel selfie camera built into the screen itself. There is a 120Hz maximum refresh rate on this screen. It has a full-HD+ resolution. For the screen, you get a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that should help keep it scratch-free and damage-free Samsung has been able to keep the bezels on the sides of the screen very small, but the chin is a little more prominent.
This phone from Samsung is very big. But it’s not very convenient to use with one hand. Fortunately, it isn’t too thick even though it has a 5,000 mAh battery. It can charge up to 25W, but you’ll need to bring your charger.
You also get a side-mounted fingerprint scanner built into the power button. It’s easy to get to, and it’s quick and easy to open the phone. There are no sharp edges on the back of the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G. The camera module in the top-left corner is made to look like it rises from the surface without any sharp edges.
There is a 108-megapixel primary camera on the Galaxy M53 5G, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth camera on the phone, as well. The flash is right next to the module, so it’s easy to see. I noticed that the back panel was straightforward to get streaks on, so I had to wipe it all the time to keep it clean.
A vapor cooling system helps keep the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G from getting too hot. It runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC and has a fan to keep the temperature down. The OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G (Review) also has the same SoC as the Galaxy M53 5G. It can be seen as a competitor to the Galaxy M53 5G. Samsung also has a RAM Plus feature that lets you use up to 8GB of storage as virtual RAM on the top-end version of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G runs Android 12 with Samsung’s OneUI 4.1 skin right out of the box. My review unit had the Android security patch for March 2022 when I tried it out for the first time. People like how Samsung’s UI looks and how easy it is to use. Samsung phones are top-rated, and even though you haven’t used one in a long time, you should be able to get used to the menus and layout without too much trouble. There are other ways to use the cloud storage service from Samsung. You can set it up through a Samsung account for backups and things like that.
The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G comes with many apps from both Samsung and Google already on it. It also has a lot of “bloatware,” which can make you get many spam notifications. You can delete the apps you won’t use to get rid of a lot of space.
When I had a short time with the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G, I thought it did well. None of it slowed down. It could keep up with my use. At this point, I can say that there are some good phones in the Rs.25,000 to Rs.30,000 price range. The Galaxy M53 5G should be an excellent addition to this group. The only way to find out for sure whether or not this phone is good is to do a full review, which is what I’ll be doing soon.
