Samsung's midrange M-series was upgraded earlier this year, and we got our hands on the Galaxy M53 after covering its A-series counterpart a couple of months ago. We did say 'upgrade' in the previous sentence, but is it really? Let's go over the specs to see where it stands on paper.
For starters, the cameras are a 'neither here, nor there' type of situation - the main one has gotten a larger and higher-res sensor but that's at the expense of the ultrawide and the macro units which have both been downgraded.
Then there's the chipset - nothing's wrong with the 5G-capable Dimensity 900 we have here, but the Snapdragon 778 of the predecessor is a more potent performer.
The 6.7-inch OLED display with a 120Hz maximum refresh rate is still here; no complaints. The battery capacity, while far from the M51's class-leading 7,000mAh, remains at 5,000mAh as was on the M52, so this too can be filed under 'no change is a good thing'. The 25W charging rating remains too.
Another downgrade, and a very tangible one at that, is in the box and its contents. The two-piece white cardboard box is now half-height, which immediately tells you there's no charger inside. There still is a USB-C cable - maybe for the last time, the way things are going.
I've had this phone since November 2022 and here are my thoughts on it: -plenty fast chipset -great camera for the price -battery life is acceptable though should've been better for the price in my opinion -screen is great -cool d...
