If camera quality is important to you, the Samsung Galaxy A54 offers a better main camera, but if you prefer a slightly larger screen, then the A53 might be your preferred option as it has a marginally bigger display. Both phones have the same battery capacity, so there should be no significant difference in battery life. The A53 is a year older, so the A54 might have more up-to-date technology and potentially longer software support. If you're looking for a device made with more premium materials, the A54 has a glass back compared to the A53's plastic. Both phones run on Android and are similarly priced. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Ryan Haines | May 2023
"Samsung’s quartet of rear cameras delivers the goods, both day and night, with the only blemish being the lack of 4K/60fps video recording. The large, 6.5-inch, 120Hz AMOLED display is crisp and smooth, making video streaming enjoyable. You should have no issues pushing the 5,000mAh battery to its limits and it’s not too slow to charge relative to its competitors in the US."

Allison Johnson | April 2023
"As far as midrange phones go, the A54 has all the right stuff: a big 6.4-inch screen, very good battery life, a durable build to withstand water and dust, and a support policy promising security updates for five years. If you squint at that spec list, you can almost see a thousand-dollar flagship phone. Almost."
