  1. * Special Edit * Many if not all recent Samsung phones no longer come with the usb wall charger. You will not get it in the box.Coming from an A7 2017 model, this phone is incrementally great. Its not a huge difference but the main issue today is really OS and security updates end thus forcing a new phone. Because of using Samsung SmartTags, I likely cannot use a custom rom. If it wasn’t for that, the A7 2017 really isn’t that far from this. That’s something I can now test.The A53 has a surprisingly better speaker. Really loud and sounds like it’s coming from the front instead of the bottom where it is. Actually, seems they also use the call speaker as well to output sound which is on the top.The camera is a bit better of course. It’s good enough. I’m no camera snob or you better be buying the most expensive phones if you ask me. Has macro function. Also does a good job focusing.The fingerprint reader is about the same once enabling it to always show on the always on display (AOD) and I set AOD to always show as well.The screen is good. There’s no wild difference other than marketing.Battery seems about the same in limited testing (my A7 still gets about 48 hours with AOD enabled and some use). The battery saving special modes can add up to days of battery life mostly on standby. So in theory up to 7 days. The A7 has this feature and its great for no power emergencies. Looks like a bit differently implemented on the A53 but still have to properly test it. I know for a fact that Android devices can last up to 12 days on standard batteries as I have one that does. A much bigger screen, etc at 7 days standby is wonderful. My numbers for sleep drainage show it might even make it without the battery saver.But, the A53 battery will take some weeks or months to properly see how the battery does. Interesting, point AOD here has no auto off (and on) while down or in a pocket which is crazy. That instantly saves battery and is crazy they no longer have it. Instead they have schedule so you can at least get a partial worse effect of it at night when sleeping or tap to show, etc. The A7 thus gets me only total 3-4% drain at night even with AOD enabled. So far, the A53 with AOD always enabled sees 3% for 7 hours overnight. Looks like 4% per 8 hours. This is for my setup. Your’s may differ.Actually, one of the best improvements appears to be the cellular connection. It appears to be 2-3 bars stronger than the A7. Since the A7 was typically at 1 bar for me, it would often not receive calls, delayed messages, etc. So far, I’m receiving everything. This was a main issue I always had with the A7. Easily exceeding everything else the phone offers.By the way, I’m using the A7 wall charger here. It’s 15 watts. That’s fine. The A53 just charges 10 watts slower than the maximum. I see no need for now to spend more for that. It just charges a bit slower. As I edited in earlier, don’t expect Samsung include them now with their phones. The A53 does not come with one for anyone who thinks it does. Neither does their more expensive models this year.So far not seeing any issues. I’m happy with it. But, there’s far too many features anymore. Takes a lot of time. I’d still be almost as happy though with the A7 if it wasn’t trashed by the phone manufacturers like they are. But, if you need a phone, this one is a great choice. I highly doubt that will change here. You also get up to 4 years OS upgrades and 5 years security which increases the value of this phone over many manufacturers.Bug: AOD stuck at full brightness in the dark thus consuming more battery. SOLVED: The eye comfort shield (what they call the software blue screen filter for night time that makes the screen yellowish) causes AOD to have problems dimming when both are running.

  2. Camera does not adjust well in dim lights.

  3. I absolutely loveddddddd this phone, unfortunately I has to send it back because it is not dual sim but other than that it is a perfect phone. It came sealed in the Samsung box with the adapter and USB Cable inside, also with the sims card slot opener. The picture quality is absolutely amazing as well as the storage and speed. There are no scratches on the phone you would think it is brand new. Amazing phone just wish it was dual sim, it can hold a dual sim card holder but the phone will only read one sim card.

  4. Considering the price, the phone is very good value. And as a whole I’m satisfied with the product. Keep in mind this is a budget line phone.The camera is fine, but won’t compare with some of the flagship phones. To me the biggest shortcoming is that the wi-fi distance on this phone is a tad bit shorter than I would like. My old phone had better range and it was nothing special. That’s something Samsung should not have skimped out on.Otherwise, though, the battery is very good. Gaming seems to perform well (though I didn’t try any graphically robust games). Appreciate the aux port as sometimes I do like to plug in my really good headphones as opposed to my bluetooth earbuds depending on what I’m doing. Vibration is strong enough, but I do miss having a little light somewhere on the phone to let you know if you have a text or notification that you didn’t notice. That’s something expensive phones forget too though sometimes. It’s useful to have and I feel phone manufacturers should consider that convenience.All things considered, good price for this kind of product.

  5. Generally satisfied with this purchase phone came in mint condition. Good for the price

  6. I love this case! It's super cute, lightweight and I've had loads of compliments on it. The only thing I would say is that it isn't as clear as on the picture and is slightly grey on the background, however, this wasn't an issue for me

  7. The phone case is really cute!! Only issue is that when I try to use the .5x camera, the case around the lens is slightly visible in the corners (which doesn't really affect me lol, but just keep that in mind). Other than that it's perfect 🥰

  8. I am upset that neither ATT or Tracfone will allow this phone! I did not see and was not aware of International Versions vs. US Versions of the Samsung Galaxy A13.

  9. Prior owner’s name appears when getting incoming calls..

  10. I wish more modern phones used a fingerprint reader in the power button rather than in the screen. This one works great. The rest of the phone is very functional yet slow. Good but for the price.

  11. This is the first time I purchased a mid-range phone instead of a high-end model and I’m surprised how capable the A53 is. The screen is excellent, bright and vibrant and the battery life is amazing. I’m not a power user and I don’t game on the phone so it’s mostly used for texting, surfing and you know…phone calls. And it’s been a solid phone. Occasionally, you’ll see some lag moving from app to app. I turned off the screen animations and that stopped most of the lag. But for only $400? It’s a really nice phone. I don’t think I’ll ever buy another high-end phone. This phone does everything I need it to do. The photos look good and it’s fast enough for me. And Samsung will support it for years. Buy it.Now about Amazon’s trade-in policy…in a word…it sucks. I traded an S8 for $25. The phone was always in a case with a screen protector. For a 5 year old phone it still worked and the screen was in perfect condition, no scratches and not cracked. However, Amazon lowered the trade-in value to $11. WHAT THE @#$%. They said it was reduced because the screen was cracked (it wasn’t). So either the inspector is lying, the inspector dropped the phone, or the inspector reviewed the wrong phone. And there’s no recourse. After two chat sessions and two phone calls, not one person understood the problem. And they couldn’t refer me to whomever reviews the trade-ins.If you’re considering trading an item to Amazon, trader beware. They may short-change you, and if they do, you’ll have no avenue to dispute the trade value.

  12. Fue muy cuidadoso al poner la cajita las cámaras lo están viendo

  13. Pretty phone case, and it fits perfectly! Looks nice with the blue colour of my Samsung. The phone case arrived a couple of days later than expected, but this wasn't an issue for me.

  14. I’m still exploring all the features of this phone, but for the most part I am pleased. I find doing a screen shot is rather awkward having to press two buttons next to each other especially having to quickly press one button. The other thing I dislike using the keyboard I often close out the screen because the space bar is right above the home screen icon. Has lots of storage that is why I purchased this phone. Not real happy with the camera but perhaps its because I have not discovered the proper settings. Overall good phone and would recommend it.

  15. Thank you again for the beautiful case!

  16. I sent an over an hour with provider to activate phone, and I was out of luck because manufacturer never unlocked it.Just be aware doesn’t work for some USA popular wireless providers.

  17. This was inexpensive but 5G phone. It was unlocked so I just put my TMobile sim card in it and it was working without any activations.Screen is big. Android version is fresh. Everything is great with this phone.

  18. I ordered this phone as a replacement for my beloved LG G8. I now love this phone even more …Great quality feel, fit and finish; High resolution screen with crisp, smooth scrolling; Fast processor and second sim for added memory card; Fast and furious camera and lens system; Very high quality, high level phone at a reasonable price.I was skeptical about the onscreen fingerprint reader, but it works flawlessly! Just not used to the Samsung keyboard and may switch back to the google keyboard … I’ll give it another few weeks to learn my swipe actions. Love it, you will not be disappointed.

  19. Worked great
