What to do with your new mid-range phone when the old one is already so good? Replace the processor with a custom chip, increase the battery capacity, remove the charger from the box, and cut the price tag by fifty dollars. Congratulations, you’ve got the Galaxy A53 5G. By the way, it can be ordered on the Simyo website.

Nevertheless, this device copes with all the basic functions perfectly. Of course, as for the mid-budget segment. But, as practice shows, for a person who is not engaged in a certain activity – a designer, photographer or programmer – this is quite enough. By the way, you can choose any presented smartphone and order it on the Simyo website. Follow the link!


  • Excellent autonomy
  • 4 OS versions and five years of security updates
  • Excellent display


  • No power supply and cable in the box
  • Samsung shell is still cluttered
  • oversaturated photos

Small hardware improvements are not the main thing in this smartphone. More importantly, Samsung expanded its support policy, which was already the best on the market. The A53 5G will receive four versions of the Android OS and security updates over five years. Google also increased security support to five years, but the Pixel’s OS is only updated for three years. Naturally, new patches will be released decreasingly towards the end of the term, but supporting a mid-range smartphone during such a period is great.

Samsung has also listened to user complaints about its shell for the OS. The A53 5G has One UI 4.1 based on Android 12, which is a little more comfortable and cleaner than before. And if you want to be in the Samsung ecosystem (which this year has become more extensive and useful than ever), then the Galaxy A53 5G will fully justify the investment in it.

Previously, mid-range smartphones from Samsung were sold in the West with an Exynos chip, and in America with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. This year, the A53 5G, like the A33 5G, has completely moved to a proprietary processor, so we will also get a model powered by Exynos 1280. The phone also has 6 GB of RAM – more than most competitors at the same price.

Overall performance remained unchanged. Although in some cases, opening the keyboard on the A53 takes a little longer than on the A52. Since it counts for half a second, you will only notice this when you put them side by side. The same applies to opening applications, although here, on the contrary, the A53 does a better job than its predecessor. In general, it makes no sense to compare their performance, since it is almost completely the same. But, if you want a more advanced model, you can easily order it on the Simyo website.

There are occasional hiccups in some individual tasks, but overall the phone is fast. There are no problems here that you would not like to see in a mid-range device. It even fires up Genshin Impact, albeit with framerate drops, when there are a lot of effects on the screen. With this in mind, we can assume that the A53 5G will indeed handle subsequent versions of the operating system and continue to work normally during the entire period of support.

It doesn’t matter which store or even country you bought your A53 from, because this time you won’t have a choice of storage volume. Now it is only one – 128 GB. This is a good deal for this price segment. Even if you run out of memory, you can always expand it with a microSD card.

The A53 5G has a large 6.5-inch OLED screen with a fast 120Hz refresh rate and decent 1080p resolution. It doesn’t get very bright when used outdoors on a sunny day, which can be a little tricky, but otherwise this display is nice enough, crisp, and very smooth. It is unlikely that you will be able to find a better screen in this price segment.

In general, if you want to get acquainted with this model in more detail, then follow the fixed link to the Simyo website. They also have other models of smartphones that can be ordered!
