The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G packed with the homegrown 5nm Exynos 1280 octa-core processor clocked up to 2.4 GHz along with Mali-G68 GPU (quad-core) for gaming and graphics applications.

The performance of the Exynos 1280, performed between Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 750G and Snapdragon 778G, the Exynos 1280 is faster than the Snapdragon 750G and is close to the Snapdragon 778G, but not ahead. Since it’s manufactured in a 5nm process, it tends to consume less battery power in addition to the OneUI battery optimizations.

We had tried them in playing games such as Genshin Impact and more and there is no lag at all after 1-2 hours of playing them. We also do some video editing with the phone such as using the apps like Inshot and VivaVideo and it is working really awesome! 


As for the battery performance, it comes with 5,000mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging, Even though is not the best yet, but it is decent enough to have your phone fully charge about 2 hours usage. The downside is there is no charger in the box so you need to get your charger separately. As for the battery performance, it is pretty good as it can stand up to 2 days battery life for average use.


Overall, I am impressed with the phone as it equips with the great specs such as the stunning 120 Hz Super AMOLED display, packs a 5nm Exynos 1280 octa-core processor. The camera performance is above my expectation and pretty impressive. They complete with the IP67 water resistance design together With additional protection from Gorilla Glass 5, your device is now tougher and less prone to scratches.

Overall, it is a good options for those who are looking for an affordable phone with awesome features. They are priced at RM 1849 with 8Gof RAM together with 256 GB storage.
