Update- I have now had this phone for over a month. A little distressed to see it has already dropped $100, but that is my fault for jumping the gun.
My previous phones were a Nord 10 and a Moto G 5G phone (which I still have). Also a Samsung A52s, which I had for just a few days before sending it back to Amazon.
Here's the deal. The Samsung A52s 5g had a Geekbench 5 score of 721, vs. this new Samsung A53. The qualcomm processor on the A52s 5g is noticeably faster than this Exynos chip and I can tell that as well in operation. There's always a little pause, before something happens after touch the screen with this A53.
Compared to the Nord 10 and Moto G 5g, though, this phone this phone has faster test numbers.
Screen Brightness and battery life is what I wanted in my newest phone! Didn't get it! The 5000ma battery does not last any longer than that of the Nord 10, the Moto G 5g or the A52s that I had.
Size in this case, does not make a difference. By the end of the day, I'm still down to 20% or less. My previous Moto G Power 4g phones would run easily three days, with their 5000ma batteries. What gives? Screen brightness is still a problem. In bright outside light, I still can't see the screen on this phone either, without shading it with my hand.
Lastly, the lack of a headphone jack, although I knew it upfront, did turn out to be a problem. I usually carry around some Panasonic earbuds. When at an airshow recently, I popped them into my ears, to reduce the noise. Then remembered, that I couldn't connect them to the phone.
Now the good things- 1) I did speed test, near a collection of 5g towers. My previous Moto G 5g and my Nord 10, while running on T-mobiles network, never achieved more than 58 megabits of download speed. Which means their tuners could only handle the lower and possible the middle 5g spectrum. fyi-there are basically 3 group of frequencies (think-low, middle, high).
This Samsung A53 achieved more than 300 megabits of speed next to the same set of towers. That's almost 6 times the download speed of my other 5g phones. Which means it can tune into the higher spectrum frequencies.
2) The microSD expansion slot is a little weird. The sim goes on one side, then you flip it over to insert the microSD card. But it handles my 400 mb microSD card and transfer rate s to it are quick.
3) It seems sturdy, I've dropped it a time on two within the house. However, I had it encased in a Spigen, my favorite brand, of cellphone case.
My basic opinion, is to give it 4 out of 5. Mainly because of the lukewarm battery life, sluggish initial touch screen response, underperforming exynos processor and screen not being bright enough against the sun.
But the speed of the cellular download, the expansion slot, the screen clarity, the toughness of the phone, make me give it 4 out of 5. It's dropped $100 in less than 45 days. That's a bummer.
