Does Samsung Galaxy A53 5G perform well in Speedtest?

The Galaxy A53 5G landed here at Oficina da Net for the traditional sequence of battery, smooth wheel, review and Speedtest tests. The last one you see now is for us to check whether the smartphone performs well in daily tasks, responds quickly to commands and, of course, does not crash when needed.

It should be remembered that the Galaxy A53 5G is just another device from Samsung, a brand that has a long list of products that place it as a global market leader in the field. A fact proven by sales in the first quarter of 2022, which exceed 74 million devices sold worldwide, according to Counterpoint Research (just for comparison, Apple sold 59 million units over the same period).

Are we going to put the A53 5G to work?

Galaxy A53 5G: technical sheet

The Galaxy A53 5G is Samsung’s launch

The beautiful smartphone was launched in March, bringing a new processor from Exynos, the 1280, which is 5nm in construction, i.e. VERY small. Additionally, the A53 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, also offers additional storage via a microSD card. It runs on Android 12 with a One UI 4.1 interface. The screen is a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED, FullHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The battery is 5,000mAh. These data are important for the tests that we carry out below, so if you want to see the complete sheet of the A53, you just have to click on the link.

Realme 9 Pro Plus: technical sheet

Also a real launch, the 9 Pro Plus was the chosen contender at the time for the Speedtest
Realme’s recent launch, the 9 Pro Plus was the chosen competitor at the time for the Speedtest

The competitor at the time was Realme 9 Pro Plus, a smartphone with a MediaTek Dimensity 920 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Like the Exynos 1280, the Dimensity 920 is a new processor, so it’s perfect for us to put both to the test. The device runs Android 12 with the Realme UI 3.0 interface, has a 6.4-inch FullHD + SuperAMOLED screen and a transfer rate of 90 Hz. The battery is 4500 mAh.

Galaxy A53 5G: Performance

Now on to the tests, we have chosen four applications to analyze the performance in different benchmarks, in each of them I show how it works and the results. Both phones used the screen in FULLHD resolution, with screen refresh rate in automatic mode.

3DMark Wildlife Stress Test

The 3DMark Wild Life test aims to stress the GPU, the graphics unit of the processor. It renders the game scene in real time, and the faster the scene runs, the better.

The first stage of the test begins with the A53 scoring 2,293 points, maintaining 99.6% stability. The 9 Pro Plus scored 2,307 points with 99.2% stability.

The 9 Pro Plus had the edge in the first test and, it’s worth mentioning, both recorded the same 16º temperature in testing.

Reference AnTuTu

AnTuTu is the most famous test, with it the ranking is measured in various activities, from rendering videos to reading QRCode. It simulates general usage and ultimately generates a score.

The A53 scored 386,699 points. The 9 Pro Plus made 489,541. The results here are averages of three consecutive tests, without letting the phone cool down.

Another point for the 9 Pro Plus, which also heats up to 16°C, compared to 13°C for the A53. Devices with very low temperatures so far.

  • 🥈A53 5G


GeekBench is responsible for two separate tests, the first analyzes the core of the most powerful processor and creates a score based on performance. It then performs multi-core analysis to ensure it can handle actions that would otherwise run in the background or require more cores.

The A53 scored 530 points in Single Core only. The 9 Pro Plus hits 814 points. In multi-core, the A53 scores 1886 points, compared to 2335 for the 9 Pro Plus.

In this test, the temperature of the A53 reached 18º against 16º of the Realme 9 Pro Plus

CPU throttling

This application tests for 15 minutes, the constant use of the processor, which therefore will heat up. If the cell phone is able to keep the processor cool, performance tends to be consistent and balanced. Now, if the heat is high, the system lowers the frequency of the processor so that it cools down and does not spoil. This is the famous Throttle, and it is this action which, for example, causes the stability and the images of your game to drop, giving these famous crashes.

The A53 performed very well in this test. It peaked at 197,000 points, but maintained an average of 173,000 points, with a temperature swing of 16°C. The 9 Pro Plus made a higher maximum, it was 206 thousand points, however, with a lower average of 199 thousand points and a variation of 18ºC.

Once again, the Realme 9 Pro Plus takes the lead, as it not only achieved the highest maximum score, but also the overall average.

  • 🥇9 Pro Plus
  • 🥈A53 5G


Which of the two is faster? Testing showed the 9 Pro Plus performed slightly better in all tests. Both had very good temperature control and also have good battery life. Soon you will see the battery test with the A53 5G, in addition to the Roda Liso and of course the review.

The conclusion of this test is that the A53 is an excellent choice for mid-range smartphones. Samsung presented more and more qualified processors and with excellent energy efficiency. Is the brand on the right track? There’s still plenty to test on this device and of course you’ll see it all here at Oficina da Net on the website and also on the YouTube channel, so sign up for more Galaxy A53 5G content to come.
