2. Mini-review

Having an introductory price of $399 places the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G in a rather competitive mid-range market but there's plenty to like about this device. Not only does it feature an absolutely gorgeous 6.4-inch AMOLED display and a competent four-camera array, but the Exynos 1280 chipset inside ensures plenty of power for all your daily scrolling.

It's carefully tailored features like these that always make the Galaxy A series a worthy consideration for those on a budget. They're very much devices that straddle the middle ground between budget and flagship features - powerful and premium enough for smooth daily usage, but without going too crazy on price. It's not surprising that collectively these are Samsung's best-selling devices worldwide, even outpacing the flagship S-series devices when it comes to outright numbers.

Just below you'll find a full roundup of this week's best Samsung Galaxy A53 5G deals, picked out by our editorial team. You'll also find a more in-depth mini-review and full specs sheet for this device, should you want to compare it to any other device featured in this week's best cell phone deals.

OS: Android 12 | Screen size: 6.4-inch AMOLED, 120Hz| Resolution: 1080 x 2400 | CPU: Exynos 1280 | Memory: 4GB / 6GB / 8GB | Weight: 189g |Storage: 128 / 256| Battery: 5,000mAh | Rear camera: 12MP ultrawide / 64MP wide / 5MP macro| Front camera: 32MP 

With a competitive price point, compelling specs sheet, and full 5G capabilities, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is easily one of the best mid-range smartphones on the market right now. While not quite as premium as the Galaxy S series, it's a great choice if you're looking for something that straddles the middle ground between budget devices and flagships.

The Galaxy A53 5G's standout feature is the gorgeous 6.4-inch AMOLED display, which isn't just capable of incredibly lavish contrast and colors, but now supports a 120Hz refresh rate. That's a number that contends with even the priciest of flagships, although you will get some slightly beefier bezels on the bottom and side of the device as a trade-off. 

The camera and chip inside the A53 5G are also respectable, if not remarkable. You'll have no issues with slow down in your daily browsing and there are a ton of features to help you snap some social-ready pics baked right into the camera system. You won't wow professionals with the four-array camera on the A53 5G but you'll fool all but the most studious of Instagram scrollers.

And, to top it all off, the Galaxy A53 5G also features a rather beefy 5,000 MAh battery. This isn't something that's unique to this device - in fact, it's fairly commonplace on these mid-range devices - but it's very, very handy to have. All but the heaviest of users will get 2 days of battery life here, which is generally more than you can expect from the latest flagships.
