Screen size and type
Both phones feature Super AMOLED screens that has Full HD+ resolution. However, the screens aren’t identical.
Let’s get started by looking at The Samsung Galaxy A53 . The phone features a 6.5-inch display as well as a 120 refresh rate of 120 Hz . Additionally, the 32-megapixel camera on the front is placed within a hole, which provides greater depth to the display.
Samsung Galaxy A33 is, in contrast, comes with an 6.4-inch screen. However, its primary difference is around the 90-Hz refresh rate. In reality the lower speed results in less fluid graphics when compared to the A53.
The front camera has a lower resolution, 13 megapixels. The sensor is contained in the form of a drop-shaped notch.
Dimensions and Design
The design of the two phones are also very similar. In actual fact, Samsung has adopted a standard design across the Galaxy A lineup in recent years, particularly the higher-end models. It also made no changes in 2022.
Let’s start with the rear constructed out of plastic. Both phones have cameras with subtle embossing. Additionally, Samsung took great care regarding the number of colors available, which cover both the back and side of the phone: white, blue black, and rose.
Make sure you know the measurements of cellphones:
|Galaxy A33||159.7 x 74.0 x 8.1 mm||189 grams|
|Galaxy A53||159.6 x 74.8 x 8.1 mm||186 grams|

Processor and Memory
In contrast to the previous models, Samsung used the same processor for both phones that is the Exynos 1280. The chip is comprised of eight cores that can reach 2.4 GHz. Each one of them has its quantity of RAM:
- Galaxy A33: 6 GB;
- Galaxy A53: 8GB.
In reality, both phones generally deliver the same performance. In addition, due to having more memory and storage capacity, the Galaxy A53 should work better in multitasking. Let’s move on to the review of the phone:
“In general, the device does not have a bad performance, but it was possible to experience a slowness in the system during the installation of several apps and, from time to time, I noticed occasional stutters.”
The issue is that this slowness in the end, was more severe when the Galaxy A33, as pointed out in the analysis.
In real life it means that for someone who is only requiring the basics and doesn’t expect much from their phone the A53 shouldn’t be an issue. If you do go beyond this profile of usage it might be a good idea to look more closely on the A53.
The phones are still equipped with 128GB of memory. Storage can be increased using microSD cards.
Both phones come from their box equipped with Android 12 straight out from the box. This means that aside from running the most recent version Android 12 operating system both phones offers One UI 4.
Another benefit (and the similarity) for both phones is in the area of updates. Alongside Android 13.0 that is currently in development in the works by Google, smartphones will receive updates to Android 16, which is the latest version of Android . Samsung will also announce plans to release the software with security improvements for a period of five years.
Samsung has put 4 cameras at the rear of both phones. There are however some differences between the two phones:
|Galaxy A33||Main – main: 48 megapixels (f/1.8 as well as OIS)
Ultrawide 8 Megapixels (f/2.2)
Macro 5-megapixels (f/2.4)

Macro five megapixels (f/2.4)
The depth of field is 5 megapixels (f/2 4, 4)
|4K (3840 2160 pixels) @ 30 frames per second|
However, let’s look at the review. On the other hand, with Galaxy A33 Galaxy A33 , the phone was able to take satisfactory pictures in the following categories:
“Speaking regarding image resolution this Korean hasn’t changed the primary lens formula, which means you’ll take excellent photos with this smartphone The photos are vibrant and vibrant in the best possible way. The depth effect can take a few seconds to be applied over the photo and I’m pleased with the outcome.”
Galaxy A53 Galaxy A53 is, in turn, provides a better result:
“Sao Paulo’s unpredictable weather has permitted me to test the camera in two extreme temperatures. Naturally, an time of open favors more vibrant photos, and the set assists by providing a high dynamic range, vibrant colors with a consistent resolution and almost always sharp blurring. It isn’t a disappointment on days with clouds since it gives you a well-controlled exposure, stunning texture and vivid colors.”
It is important to remember that the camera duo comes with optical image stabilization (OIS) on the main camera, which assists to prevent blurry images.
Battery and charging
The pair comes with batteries that can reach 5,000 mAh. For testing, its was streamed video for 2 hours, browsed Instagram during an entire hour, and playing Asphalt 9 for 15 minutes with maximum detail. All with the highest brightness, and the screen running at 120 Hz and wirelessly. In this setting, the phone time was consumed by 34% of the time..
Ah, it’s exactly the same as Galaxy A53 with the 120 Hz screen.
The device supports fast charging of up to 25 watts. However, Samsung only includes the 15W adapter plug and USB-C cables in the box.
Galaxy A33 and the Galaxy A33 and A53, however, are not equipped with the capability of induction (wireless) charging. .
Samsung has announced that it will bring 5G to its lower-end models. Also, the Galaxy A33 and Galaxy A53 weren’t removed. Furthermore, smartphones are equipped with NFC technology, which can be used to make payment via contactless technology.
The list of connectivity also includes Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 5.1 and integrated positioning systems such as GPS.
Samsung however, has do not offer a headphone jack in both models. Instead, users will have to connect the USB-C port along with an adapter to connect the two. A different option would be to purchase an accessory that is already designed for this particular pattern.
Both Samsung phones come with an fingerprint reader beneath the screen. The duo also comes with Dolby Atmos which provides an immersive audio experience. These features are integrated into the company’s software products like Safe Folder to store content and apps that provide more security.
RAM Plus is an interesting addition as well. It uses a portion of the storage that is borrowed to create an virtual RAM which can boost performance. This function is found on the two Galaxy models Galaxy A33 and A53.
Cost-benefit and price: after all, which phone should you purchase?
