Summary 

Comparative Overview

Comparative Overview 

When compared to its predecessor, the Samsung A52 series, the Samsung A53 has not undergone any significant feature upgrades. If you want to purchase a new device, you will certainly be considering features like the camera, battery and processor before making a decision. However, if there is no particular upgrade done on a newer model of a device, upgrading might seem like a waste of money.

In relation to the key features of the Samsung Galaxy A53, it maintains the same 6.5-inch screen size that came with the previous A52. This might not be a dealbreaker when you consider the fact that Samsung has maintained this screen display over the last three years. They both have the same centre-hole selfie camera, slim side bezels and a relatively small bottom chin. 

When looking at the backs of both devices, you will notice that they are identical. The Galaxy A52 and A53 both have soft matte plastic casings that are paired with polished surfaces that resemble metal and have a semi-premium appearance.

The A53 has a slightly smoother and more subtle camera bump, which is not quite noticeable at first glance when comparing it to the older A53 model. They are both IP67-rated against water and dust.

The speakers on the Samsung A52 and A53 are a dual set of stereo speakers that improve the out-loud listening experience. It is very audible and clear, even without any special features for enhancement. 

They both support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, but only the A52 comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Using no battery-saving techniques, the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A53’s 4500 milliamp-hour batteries can easily provide you with 12 hours of screen time. It lacks any other extra battery features like wireless charging or industry-leading fast charging. They both have basic 25-watt charging support, which you might not be able to utilize as a 25-watt brick is not included in the box. You will have to purchase that separately in order to use this feature.

The camera specifications of both the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A53 are exactly replicated. It features a 64-megapixel main lens, a 12-megapixel ultrawide, and a pair of 5-megapixel macro and 5-megapixel depth lenses. The camera shots are excellent, as evidenced by Samsung devices both day and night. Your photos come out very colourful and saturated with tons of impressive detail. 

During the nighttime, it is advisable to stay clear of the night mode feature on this device. Generally, night mode is meant to enhance shots taken in the dark to come out better, but this feature does the complete opposite on this device. You should just shoot with the default camera setup, as this gives you a more satisfactory outcome.

As you can tell, the overall specifications are exactly the same for the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A53 except for some slight differences like colours. The Samsung Galaxy A53 offers more muted tones like White, Blue, and Peach. The Samsung Galaxy A52, on the other hand, offers more vivid colours like Awesome Black, Awesome White, Awesome Violet, and Awesome Blue.

There is also a difference in the processor that powers both devices, as the Samsung Galaxy A52 uses the Qualcomm SM7125 Snapdragon 720G (8 nm) paired with the Adreno 618 graphics, and the Samsung Galaxy A53 comes with the Exynos 1280 (5 nm), which is one of Samsung’s newest mid-tier chipsets paired with the Mali G-68 graphics. 

You also get a higher adaptive 120 Hz refresh rate with the Samsung Galaxy A53, which is an upgrade from the A52’s 90 Hz refresh rate, which is, in fact, static. They both offer a smooth and responsible screen experience with excellent overall performance.

Recommendation 

All in all, both phones come with nice features that offer great value for the money spent. If you’re looking to buy a capable mid-range device that’s packed with lots of impressive features, the A53 is a great choice because it’s a newer model. If you already own the A52 series, the A53 will not provide a significant upgrade because Samsung used the exact same specifications, including the camera.

Not even the camera has been improved. However, you can upgrade from the A52 series to the A53 series if a different chipset that has no effect on daily use, a quicker 120Hz refresh rate, and more subdued colours are important enough upgrades to you.

Conclusion 

The Samsung A52 and A53 are both good devices that offer more than enough features to provide you with a satisfactory user experience. They have the same technology, which features an AMOLED HD display with a good refresh rate for fluid performance, a better camera, and a Samsung Android experience with many years of software updates.
