    Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by LJ90 from Cute colour, terrible phone I've been a Samsung fan for several years now and I couldn't be more disappointed. The phone is mediocre at best! Slow, underwhelming, battery life definitely not half as good as it claims (I have to charge at least once a day), typing and keyboard often stop working (which makes writing this review painful), lock screen far to bright and impossible to turn it down because of the fingerprint unlock tool (even when that's turned off, I tried), and last but not least: what a terrible camera! My S10e was so much better and my S7 that was my favourite phone, also better! I am extremely disappointed with the money I wasted in this and is sad that now I'm having to look for a phone from a different provider for the first time in years. My opinion of Samsung started to decrease with how quickly my S10e started to act up, but now I wish I could keep it because the A53 is such a disappointment!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Kieran4715 from Great phone Poor battery!! Its good for the price but expect problems after a year of buying it! My battery use to last 26/28 hours of usage now its barely touching 18hours to 0% I have nothing on the phone I still have 92GB space and it overheats just by browsing! Not happy at all

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nathaly V from DONT FORGET TO ORDER YOUR FREE EAR BUDS! Really good phone, very good price for such an outstanding phone! However! You do not hear back from them regarding how to claim your free ear buds, so after live chats, several phone calls asking on how to claim, I've been advised that I have to wait 14 days to hear back from them regarding the offer, if I do not hear back, I have to go to Samsung directly and show them proof of purchase and chase the claim with them directly. Seems like an extremely lengthy process for something that should be quick and easy. Not good Currys/Carphone Warehouse! Also had issues with the staff recognising my order number. To summarize, product is great but freebie and service is terrible. I think its a scheme to make it so lengthy to claim so people give up and don't claim their freebies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sezbee from Great phone Excellent camera, video and battery life. Easy to navigate around the phone and liked the useful and prompts that were given when I first started using it. The only negative I’ve found so far is that it’s the largest phone I’ve had since 1998 so it doesn’t fit in my handbag inner pockets - that’s a small inconvenience for what seems to be an excellent phone.
