Samsung Galaxy M53 5G Review
Although Samsung’s M-series smartphones are younger than the popular A- and S-line, they already boast almost a dozen truly successful models. Indeed, Samsung’s M-series smartphones are the gray area between entry-level phones from the A-series and the flagships from the S-series. These devices emphasize the balance of technical characteristics and increased autonomy, and we love it.
As it is the case for the Galaxy A73, the M53 5G is a cutting-edge Mobile innovation hidden in a beautiful design and a 5G network. It features the most advanced technology and practical features on the market now (Super AMOLED Plus display, FHD+ resolution, 108MP main camera, Fast charging, etc.) in a minimalist design that’s pleasing for your hands and your eyes.

Samsung Galaxy m53 5G Design & Display
Like most of Samsung’s mid-range models, the Samsung M53 is visually outstanding. The phone is available in two colors: blue and green, each with a matte back. The Samsung M53’s is made of plastic, measures 164.7 x 77 x 7.4 millimeters, and weighs 176 grams (Extremely lightweight, and you can easily hold it in one hand). Thanks to it’s biometrical feature, you can unlock it via the fingerprint sensor (located on the power button) or the front-facing camera.
The 6.7-inch AMOLED display makes it one of the larger devices. We think the secret weapon of the outstanding display of this phone is its “Super AMOLED Plus.” Indeed, thanks to it, a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (density of 392 pixels per inch) and its refresh rate of 120 hertz, your images, videos, texts are displayed smoothly, the contrast is almost perfect and the blacks are finer. Unfortunately, there is no charger in the box.
The screen is also equipped with Gorilla Glass 5 protection, which protects the phone from accidental drops (small objects falling on the phone, dropping the phone itself, sleeping on the phone by accident). Like many other users, we don’t like the much the unavailability of the HDR10 playback on Amazon Prime. And we hope that Samsung’s next updates will offer us this useful feature.
The back of the phone has a minimalist design with a stunning Samsung logo. Like the volume buttons, the power button is placed on the side and contains the fast fingerprint scanner. Like many users, we are not thrilled by the fact that this smartphone comes without a headphone jack, and although this offers some advantage (Low price, improved waterproofing, a better IPS in General) it remains a drawback. But overall, we love the elegant and minimalist design of the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G.
On the back, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is equipped with a quad-camera setup with a main camera resolution of 108 megapixels. It is supplemented by an ultra-wide-angle camera as well as a depth and macro camera, which are supposed to enable creative and high-resolution pictures. The front-facing camera takes high-resolution selfies with 32 megapixels and has a wide-angle lens for a group selfie function.
This camera combination shows us that the Korean giant has considerably improved its digital photography technology, as evidenced by this smartphone. We loved the photos taken in full daylight with its 108MP main camera: details are sharp in all areas. We also love the 108MP UHD mode it features. It delivers a maximum photo resolution without increasing the size of the pictures.
Instead of relying on an in-house processor like in the Galaxy A53 5G, the Galaxy M53 5G uses the MediaTek Dimensity 900 that can easily handle all your daily tasks (calls, messages, photos, browsing, playing your favorite games, multitasking, and more). Moreover, like the Exynos 1280, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 relies on two fast Cortex-A78 and six efficient Cortex-A55 cores and achieves the same clock rates as the chip in the Galaxy A53 5G.
The Galaxy M53 5G is available with
- 6 GB RAM and 128 GB expandable storage
- 8 GB RAM and 128 GB expandable storage
However, in terms of performance, we feel that the phone is not very suitable for heavy operations that require a lot of resources (graphics, processor).
We love the phone’s Operating system and interface. The Samsung Galaxy m53 5G run on Android v12.0, One UI 4 operating system, and like all mid-range smartphones, it comes with pre-installed apps. You can easily disable/uninstall them in the configurations. We cannot talk about the performance of this smartphone without mentioning the wonders its One Ul. Featuring amazing features like the ability to protect your sensitive folders, smart widgets, assisted photo and video shooting, a beautiful dark mode, and many more. The bad news is that this phone has mono speakers instead of stereo speakers like most smartphones we are used to. But it is amazingly loud and the sound quality is excellent.
The Galaxy M53 5G features the Samsung Knox security platform, which has been integrated into both the hardware and software of the device. Thanks to it, your phone is safeguarded from the moment you turn it on for the first time, and thanks to this technology, a multi-level protection prevents malware and other advanced security threats from making unwanted changes. You can also benefit from the Secure Folders to store private files like photos and videos, word documents, pdf, apps and data.
And as the name already reveals, the smartphone supports the current mobile standard 5G. Thanks to 5G connectivity, the Galaxy M53 5G offers a fast access to the Internet – large files download, gaming via cloud services or live streaming are easily achievable. The Hybrid SIM slot accommodates with either two nano-SIM cards or a microSD card for one nano-SIM for memory expansion of up to 1 Terabyte. Furthermore, the connectivity standards include WiFi 5 (ac, dual band), Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and navigation via A-GPS, Galileo, QZSS, etc.
The performance of the battery is also outstanding. As in the Galaxy M52 5G, a 5,000 mAh battery is used. As Samsung says, the smartphone can last up to 19 hours while playing videos continuously. Another great advantage of this is the quick charging feature. Indeed, thanks to the 25-watt fast-charging function, only two hours is needed to recharge the battery (100%).
Samsung’s M series models offer an excellent value for money (Better than the A series, and the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is the perfect example. It is cheap, powerful, has an excellent 108MP main camera and offers security features that we love. It is better than most phones in this price range and it is an excellent phone for your daily activities. You get amazing performance while using apps.
But if you are looking for a phone to play heavy games, take and edit photos and videos, then the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is definitely not for you.
