The Galaxy A53 5G is a very pleasant device to hold and use at first glance. It has a sizable screen, a metal frame with rounded corners, and a plastic back with a nicely integrated camera island.
The control buttons are located on the right-hand frame, and a slot for two nanoSIM cards—or one nano card and an additional microSDXC card—is located at the bottom. The frame is slightly rounded and, despite being “glossy,” it fits the hand securely and comfortably.
The Galaxy A53 5G’s 6.5-inch Infinity Display screen, which almost completely covers the front surface with only a small eyelet for the front camera, looks impressive because Samsung places a high value on high image quality.
The image is displayed on a panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 that is of the SUPER AMOLED 120 Hz type, which ensures a smooth image and accurate color reproduction. Natural and Vivid are the two available modes; Vivid is used by default.
Both guarantee high color fidelity, though the vivid version is unquestionably advised for a wider color palette. The factory tuning is quite nice; the colors are saturated but not too much, for the best effect I decided to warm up the white with the color temperature slider by one division.
The Galaxy A53 5G display has a maximum brightness of 800 nits, which is less than in flagship devices, but when I used the phone in direct sunlight to navigate my bicycle, it turned out that the phone still functions, if not flawlessly, then at least properly.
The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G runs Android 12 and has the exclusive OneUI 4.1 skin on top. In my opinion, One UI is best for Android and has a clean, transparent appearance.
Currently, one UI offers the highest level of visual coherence, aesthetics, high functionality, and significant modification possibilities.
The Galaxy Buds headphones will connect to this manufacturer’s smartphone the fastest and most effectively, and they have codecs that enable higher sound quality. In addition to appearance, there is (to use a trendy word) an ecosystem of devices.
The data and device security system in the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is just as strong as that found in the most expensive Galaxy S series models. It enables you to remotely block, erase the device and try to locate it in the event of theft using passwords, PIN codes, fingerprints, etc.
Although I wasn’t able to use the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G for very long, it turned out to be a very pleasant smartphone. There are no significant cuts in the system’s recordings, the phone doesn’t get hot even when it’s working hard, and there’s no reason for temperature to affect performance.
Exynos 1280 and 6 GB of RAM are not a combination for setting performance records, but their performance is still adequate for tasks that require more work.
Multimedia applications will run more than adequately, and the picture is completed by a good screen and above-average sound (full stereo, well-balanced between channels, and with Dolby ATMOS, which also plays quite nicely).
Having a mid-range SoC also means that very little energy is needed. The Galaxy A53 5G’s internal battery has a 5000 mAh capacity, so you can anticipate that we will charge the phone every two days. 8 hours of SoT with moderate use is not out of the ordinary, and 4 hours of work with a heavy load (such as playing a game).
By adapting the energy management strategy to how we use the smartphone, the adaptive power saving system aids in obtaining the longest operating time possible. The Galaxy A53 5G has a fast charging system with a maximum power of 25 W, using the most common USB-PD chargers – this is important because Samsung does not offer any of its cubes. Of course, the empty battery needs to be recharged.
The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is covered by four years of manufacturer support and will receive updates long after other manufacturers probably forget about their medium-sized, and maybe also the highest models.
In recent years, Samsung has made significant improvements to the photo and video quality of its designs. The Galaxy A53 5G is able to benefit from some of these upgrades that also reached the middle shelf. There are 4 rear cameras and 1 front camera in the imaging system.
However, the main wide-angle camera not only has a large matrix but also optical image stabilization, which is extremely uncommon in this price range. The set of cameras appears to be typical for mid-range devices only on the surface. The presence of OIS enhances the camera’s performance in low light situations or when the night mode should be used, in addition to enabling you to take sharp photos and stable film shots in daylight.
The photos are generally of good quality, especially those taken with the main camera; the files produced by combining pixels have a resolution of 16 Mpix, though you can also use the full 64 Mpix by choosing the proper option. The detail and dynamics are very good, and since HDR is automatically activated, dealing with stark contrasts is made simpler. I would categorize the resulting images as pretty rather than faithful because Samsung emphasizes eye-catching, highly saturated colors rather than tonal accuracy and the potential for additional processing, which seems justified. This camera is intended for regular users who want an immediate result, not for photographers.
Galaxy A53 5G, despite the lack of appropriate optics, also offers a hybrid zoom up to x10. The quality of the longest zooms is poor, but x2 is fully usable and x4 with some caveats.
The Exynos 2200 is a new mobile processor featuring a powerful AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based graphics processing unit from Samsung (GPU). The Exynos 2200 processor will offer the ultimate mobile phone gaming experience, as well as increasing the overall experience in social media apps and photography, thanks to the most cutting-edge Arm®-based CPU cores available on the market today and an improved neural processing unit (NPU).
“By combining cutting-edge mobile, GPU, and NPU technology with the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, Samsung has built the Exynos 2200 to give the best experience for smartphone consumers.”
The Exynos 2200 will reinvent mobile gaming experience with the Xclipse, our new mobile GPU designed with industry leader AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics technology, backed by better graphics and AI performance,” stated Yongin Park, President of Samsung Electronics’ System LSI Business. “In addition to providing customers with the finest mobile experience, Samsung will continue to lead the way in logic chip innovation.”
The Xclipse GPU is a one-of-a-kind hybrid graphic processor that sits in the middle of the console and mobile graphics processors. Xclipse is a combination of the letter ‘X’, which stands for Exynos, and the word ‘eclipse.’ The Xclipse GPU, like an eclipse, will signify the end of an era in mobile gaming and the beginning of a new one.
The Xclipse inherits powerful graphic features like as hardware accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) that were previously only available on PCs, laptops, and consoles thanks to the high-performance AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
“The AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture brings power-efficient, sophisticated graphics to PCs, laptops, consoles, cars, and even mobile phones.” Samsung’s Xclipse GPU is the first in a series of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, according to David Wang, Senior Vice President of AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group. “We can’t wait for mobile phone customers to enjoy the fantastic gaming experiences made possible by our technology partnership.”
The Exynos 2200 includes a 5G modem that supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave (millimeter Wave) frequency bands. The modem may improve the speed up to 10Gbps using E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC), which uses both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals.

Samsung Galaxy Quantum 3 is official: the South Korean giant continues with its niche range whose salient feature is a “quantum chip”, more precisely a QRNG ( Quantum Random Number Generator ). For a computer system, governed by finite and precise values (“zero” or “one”, there is no other choice), creating truly random numbers is no small problem; the more successful you are in this task, the greater the security of the cryptographic technologies on which they are based. One of the novelties of the new generation compared to the previous one is the so-called “quantum indicator”, which indicates to the user if the cryptographic technology is in service
Specifically, Galaxy Quantum 3 is a Galaxy M53 ( presented for just a couple of weeks ) to which the quantum chip has been added (and has a little different colors). This means that it is a mid-range smartphone, in which the 108 MP main camera sensor and the FHD + display with a maximum refresh of 120 Hz stand out. The data sheet is as follows:
Storage: 128 GB, expandable via microSD (max 1 TB)
main rear: 108 MP, f / 1.8 aperture, autofocus
Ultra Wide Rear: 8MP, f / 2.2 aperture, fixed focus
rear macro: 2 MP, f / 2.4 aperture, fixed focus
rear depth: 2 MP, f / 2.4 aperture, fixed focus
front: 32 MP, f / 2.2 aperture
Battery: 5,000 mAh
5G modem, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.2, USB-C
Measurements: 77.0 x 164.7 x 7.4mm, 17 6g
Colors: blue, white, black
Operating system: Android 12 , customized One UI 4 .1
As always for this range, it is unlikely that Samsung Galaxy Quantum 3 will arrive in our country. For what it’s worth, it costs around 618,200 won in South Korea, or about € 460 . Sales will begin the day after tomorrow, April 22, and deliveries will begin on April 26, next Tuesday.
Samsung promises that people can take best moments of their lives with pro-grade AI camera features which comes with Galaxy S series.
The company has recently launched two flagship smartphones S22 and S22+. Both these devices come with dynamic cameras with advanced intelligent image processing. These features will enable people to take stunning moments of their lives.
TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business called these devices with groundbreaking camera capabilities that work day and night, powered by our best mobile performance yet.
Samsung’s Most Intelligent Cameras with revolutionary new Nightography features
The Galaxy S22 series’ revolutionary new Nightography features comes with 23% larger sensor than earlier models like S21 and S21+. The good thing with the cameras are this they come with Adaptive Pixel technology.
The cameras have been designed in such a way that they let in more light , draw out details and capture stunning colors that make your pictures stand out in all lighting conditions including in darkness.
Samsung has given a powerful 50MP main camera, 10MP tele-lens, and 12MP ultra-wide lens in both the devices. Combination of these lenses will enable people to capture high quality shots.
Samsung has added a new feature for people who love make videos using their smartphones. This feature is called new Auto Framing2 feature.
This feature automatically detects and tracks up to 10 people and adjust camera’s focus according so you can take clear pictures.
Both these devices S22 and S22+ have advanced VDIS technology. This technology control vibration and lets you capture smooth and sharp footage while you are on the move.
Samsung’s latest AI technology makes it easy to take perfect Portrait mode photos with the new AI Stereo Depth Map. It captures photos with the smallest details. The new Portrait mode helps prevent pet hair from blending into the background, so you always get the best shot of your pet.
Some time ago, Samsung introduced a new feature for its Galaxy smartphones, which ideally can improve performance in certain situations. With the introduction of One UI 4.1, this turbo mode has been further improved and allows more setting options.
Samsung smartphones: Virtual RAM up to 8 GB Many Chinese manufacturers started installing virtual memory in their smartphones some time ago. The normal memory is made available as main memory. Samsung jumped on the bandwagon a little later, but didn’t allow any setting options. This is how 4 GB of internal memory was always converted into working memory. This is not ideal for smartphones with little memory. That changes with One UI 4.1, which Samsung is introducing with the Galaxy S22 smartphones and Galaxy Tab S8 tablets (source: SamMobile ).
Those who install the latest software version on their smartphone can then choose from four options. Instead of a fixed 4 GB, you can then choose from 2, 4, 6 and 8 GB of memory , which is converted into working memory. If you have problems with performance in certain situations, this could be the solution. Older devices in particular, where RAM is limited, could particularly benefit from this. But such a feature is also useful for the future, because you can create some breathing room at the utilization limit of the main memory.
Currently, the feature is only available on the new Samsung devices that have just been launched. Over time, however, Samsung will of course distribute One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 for most smartphones and tablets . Then at the latest you will be able to decide individually how to distribute the resources.
The Samsung Galaxy A83, which will appear in spring, will become the top model of the A series. It may also be the first one to visually refresh Korean mediums.
The likely appearance of the Samsung Galaxy A83 is presented by the Dutch website LetsGoDigital . If their information is correct, the top medium of Samsung will receive a look different from the other current models of the Galaxy A series. It will be elegant enough to boldly stand next to the flagship models of the Galaxy S series. The Galaxy A83 is to receive a flat display with 2.5D glass. The screen will be a Dynamic AMOLED matrix with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and maybe even QHD resolution. The core of the housing will be a metal frame, while the back will be covered with a smooth, flat surface.
It is possible that the back will be made of glass – but the use of Glasstic material, quite successfully imitating glass, is just as likely. On the flat, back wall, three round camera lens holders will be placed. They will stick out – but there will be no additional frame around them, which gives hope that the smartphone will remain slim after all. The Dutch predict that the Galaxy A83 will receive a 50-megapixel ISOCell GN5 camera, and the smartphone housing will be IP67 waterproof and offered in several colors. For now, however, it is too far from the premiere to try to guess the rest of the specs.
Innovations have made Samsung a leader in many markets. The company has launched many smartphone series which has won people’s hearts in different parts of the world. The new Galaxy Z series which has foldable housings and flexible screens is the latest smartphone from the company. It is called Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Construction and build quality
Samsung says it has used the strongest type of aluminum. This strong aluminum makes the construction of the Galaxy Z Fold3 very impressive. It has matte finish surface which gives it a stunning look.
Nevertheless, when looking at this surface, we will appreciate the thin, even frames around the screen. Similarly, we can praise the factory-applied foil, as well as the selfie camera. This one may not be the newest, but it still offers images with high detail and sharpness. Above the display we can see a very thin gap, which is the output of the sound from the speaker for calls.
The cool edges of the Galaxy Z Fold3 both to the touch and its appearance prove that we are dealing with premium equipment . On the individual sides we find:
– top – loudspeaker grille, set of microphones
– bottom – main microphone, speaker grille, USB-C connector
– left side – hinge with the company logo
– right side – tray for SIM cards, physical keys including locks combined with a fingerprint reader
A set of oppositely placed speakers is perfectly suited to almost any position in which we can hold the smartphone in question. Undoubtedly, they are one of the best sound sources in mobile devices. They are loud, full of bass (for the size), with a wide stage, and above all with a clear stereo effect. The fingerprint reader used copes well with user recognition. The only thing Samsung needs to improve in the design of the Galaxy Z Folds is the skew visible from the edge. After folding, the equipment is not even and there is a gap at the hinge, which is an ideal place for the accumulation of smaller and larger dirt. In this regard, the company should see how Huawei managed to fix it in the Mate X2.
After unfolding the Galaxy Z Fold3, it still shows up with a clear crease on the flexible screen that you can naturally not only see, but also feel under your finger.
The camera still stands out when the screen is turned off, but we will most likely use it in the form of face recognition. Its quality is clearly limited and it is by far the worst form for taking a selfie. The flexible panel has been covered with a foil that cannot be removed. It is inherently delicate, but after more than two weeks of testing, I did not notice any damage or scratches. The protection itself is also ensured by thin frames that protrude above the display surface.
The hinge used allows you to unfold and lock the Galaxy Z Fold3 in any position in a very wide range, which Samsung naturally used in the software. Among other things, this solution allows you not to use the internal camera for photos.
Displays and image quality
The cover screen of the Galaxy Z Fold3 is primarily distinguished by very high brightness. Samsung knows that we will mainly use it in the sun, so we do not have to worry about the readability of the panel.As part of everyday use, the extended display offers about 500 nits, but it is enough for the software to sense the bright environment and this value increases by more than 2x to nearly 1100 nits. The quality of the external screen also performs very well with full sRGB and DCI-P3 support. Support for HDR materials was also confirmed. Importantly, wide settings allow you to choose the settings for yourself. For dessert, the Koreans added the image refresh rate at 120 Hz, which is not only one of the points in the specification on paper, but actually translates into the entire system and the vast majority of applications.
The camera under the flexible screen is definitely the future
After all, we expect the most from the internal display. You already know that you get used to the recess. It is practically imperceptible when we look directly at the panel. Only the foil used seems shinier than the outer one and this is the key difference between the screens. After the measurements, we also notice lower brightness, although still very high. In traditional conditions, we can still count on nearly 500 nits, while the automatic backlight boosting allows us to reach over 900 nits. The screen quality is admirable and we are again talking about full DCI-P3 and sRGB coverage. There was also support for HDR10 +, HLG and Widevine L1, so we can play all materials in high quality.
Of course, the flexible display of the Galaxy Z Fold3 is distinguished by a camera hidden underneath. Inevitably, when we display dark images, we can easily find an eye , but light or colored backgrounds effectively mask the matrix. Naturally, when we know where to look, we will notice a clearly lower pixel density . However, in daily use, the recess situation repeats itself. We know something is there, but we are fine with it and enjoy a full-fledged panel.
Lastly, a lot of praise for the adaptive screen refresh rate. The smartphone supports 30, 48, 60, 90 and 120 Hz, dynamically adapting to the current needs. Even when we play movies in 24 frames per second, the smoothness is raised to 48 Hz. In most applications, the software tries to use 120Hz, which is not so obvious. In fact, on the fingers of one hand, I am able to count the titles that were blocked at 60 Hz. By the way, if we want, in games we can just force a specific refresh rate. That is why Samsung did a great job and comprehensively in this respect.
Battery – working and charging time
On paper, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has a pretty small battery (smaller than its predecessor) for its large display. Samsung still assumes that we will not use it constantly and that we will only need a smaller external screen for many daily activities. After all, in my case I could actually do a lot on the smaller panel, so in the end the working day was not a bigger problem. This is obviously an average result by today’s standards, but the minimum was met. In the case of the time of the displays on, we can count on:
– 6 hours of easy work (social media, Chrome, YouTube, Google Sheets and Docs)
– 3 hours of work at full speed.
The reviewed smartphone heats up slightly during more demanding processes, but it does not burn in the hand. Meanwhile, charging shows us the most that Samsung could not have given us everything. The smartphone supports a maximum of 25 W (in the USB Power Delivery standard), so the full regeneration of the cell takes two hours without a quarter of an hour. The first thirty minutes allows you to recover 33% of your energy.
Cameras – the quality of photos and videos
The camera application in most smartphones can be considered successful when it makes our work easier and allows for personalization. In the case of Samsung, we can also count on it. However, this is only the beginning of the possibilities. After all, an advanced hinge allows you to dynamically adapt the interface to the prevailing conditions. Being able to take selfies from the main cameras is also an option. Added to this is a successful assistant that helps you choose the best shot. If one shot is not enough for us, then in a special mode with this name it is enough to wave the smartphone for a moment and create many of them. Not only in the context of photos, but also animations and films. In short, there is everything and more.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 allows you to record video in the following resolutions:
– 720p at 30 fps.
– 1080p at 30 and 60 fps.
– 4K at 30 and 60 fps.
– slow-motion up to 960 fps.
We will only use a wide-angle and telephoto lens in combination with each resolution with 30 frames per second.
The high price requires the best of everything
Of course, the Galaxy Z Fold3 is a flagship, so it’s hard for Samsung to use any unnecessary camera. However, the Koreans certainly do not focus on the latest technology, because the matrices used are already years old, but the company has proven many times that this is not a problem . After all, it’s the software that matters a lot. Theoretically, the rating of the smartphone’s camera can be shortened that it is very good, but it is not the level of this year’s flagships.
In good lighting conditions, the quality of the photos is definitely above average. However, we can see that the smartphone can register noise in the sky. Of course, the game comes with software at the forefront of AI, which means that most of the shortages in the matrices used are practically eliminated. We will notice the most of these in the case of a sensor connected to a wide-angle lens. It lacks additional stabilization, which translates into a lower level of detail, although still at a good level. This particular camera suffers from a narrow tonal range. Meanwhile, the telephoto lens, which natively zooms in 2x the image, is just good and very similar to the main matrix. Only from time to time, mainly with single-colored spots, he sometimes introduces noises.
At night, Samsung once again reminds you of its great software and advanced mode designed for such conditions. By default, all matrices do not register too much noise, but sometimes they have a problem with sharpness. Koreans like to blur the picture sometimes , although we still cannot complain about the detail of the recorded pictures. Traditionally, the wide-angle lens fares a bit worse.
Meanwhile, the movies, as always with Samsung’s top models, have to be praised for the speed of focusing and overall stabilization. Of course, the detail, color reproduction and tonal range are also at a high level. An additional advantage to stabilization is the possibility of applying EIS, which clearly improves the image and at the same time you do not see any artifacts .
Software and performance
The camera application has already shown you that Samsung gave more than just a flexible screen. The software has also been adapted to the possibility of an unusual design. This means that the screen content will be adjusted to the current layout. It is true that not all applications have been adapted to divide the interface into two parts, but the Koreans give different forms of predefined use. You can find examples of course below. Apart from the specific structure, I consider One UI from Samsung to be definitely one of the best Android overlays.First of all, it has been refined in terms of ergonomics, so regardless of the form of use, we can be sure that the software will help us. At the same time, the company does not forget about additions, which are abundant. A wide range of personalization, support for the S Pen, special modes for players, the sensational DeX and many, many more you will learn in the gallery below with screenshots from Galaxy Z Fold3:
In terms of performance, the reviewed smartphone theoretically also lacks anything. It is very fast and you will not notice any problems during everyday use. Nevertheless, the benchmarks showed that the Snapdragon 888 does not offer as much computing power as other devices with this chip . Samsung could have deliberately limited performance to avoid overheating of the device, and after all, the system used has problems with this with competitors. Meanwhile, Galaxy Z Fold3 never showed me that it was too warm
