Reviews for the Realme Narzo N53

Realme Narzo N53 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Realme Narzo N53 smartphone has provided everything that is lacking in most modern smartphones in the same price budget. It provides a display with Full HD+ resolution that other smartphones don’t have in the same price range. The design of other smartphones would be too simple or lackluster and the performance would be severely compromised. But the Realme Narzo N53 excels in these areas as well. The smartphone goes a few steps forward and provides a great camera, amazing bezel-less screen, dual-band Wi-Fi, excellent battery life, fast charging, and a lot more that significantly improves the out-of-the-box experience that a new user will have when they buy the smartphone. That’s what makes this smartphone so great. But this smartphone is yet to be released globally.

The Narzo N53 is a good phone for the price. The phone has made some compromises in regards to performance and storage but also offers a segment-leading feature like the 33W fast charging.

Realme Narzo N53 Review: A lot of thrills under Rs. 10000
Source: The Times of India English
There are only a handful of inexpensive smartphones that genuinely deliver a fulfilling and seamless user experience. The Realme Narzo N53 is one of them! It provides satisfactory performance for your day-to-day tasks, long battery life, good cameras at this price, and a bold design to cap it all off. Yes, for me, Realme Narzo N53 successfully checks almost all the boxes you would seek in a budget smartphone. Undoubtedly, there is some room for improvement especially in terms of display, better user experience with no or limited bloatware, and cameras in low light conditions. For clean software and UI, Motorola smartphones are better. And for overall experience, Samsung can be a good choice especially Galaxy F04 or Galaxy M13, which also come under Rs. 10000. However, given its budget-friendly price of only Rs. 8999 and the features it brings to the table, the Realme Narzo N53 is easy to recommend.

Realme Narzo N53 Review – Steal Deal Under 10K?
Source: Cashify English
Realme Narzo N53 is a good budget phone that offers almost the best in the segment. Be it design, battery, charging or display experience. The main camera also does a good job in good lighting conditions. I feel like the performance of the phone could have been better. Stock-like UI offers a great software experience but the amount of bloatware and ads on the phone hampers the overall experience. Nonetheless, it’s a great option for someone who wants a nice looking phone under 10K with solid battery life.

80% Realme Narzo N53: Best smartphone under Rs 10,000?
Source: India Today English
Realme has done a good job with the newly launched Narzo N53 smartphone. The device offers a classy design bundled with top-notch performance. These factors together ensure that the phone stands strong against the competition from brands like Samsung, Redmi, Poco, and more. The Narzo N53 offers an iPhone 14 Pro series-like camera design with a fingerprint-resistant back panel and superlight build. Overall, it is a lightweight phone and this lets users use the phone easily all through the day. The display of the phone is decent and gets adequately bright in most lighting situations. Even in terms of performance, the Narzo N53 offers great value and works smoothly even when multiple apps are running in the background. It is also good with basic games, but not so much with heavy GPU mobile games.

70% Realme Narzo N53 Review: Sleek and Shiny, but Does It Stand Out?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme Narzo N53 is one of the few recent budget smartphones under Rs. 10,000 in India that looks like it could be worth more than it actually costs. The tall display is good enough for multimedia viewing and social media use. You also get good battery life and a relatively quick charging experience. I like the front camera's performance, which is one of the best I've used in the segment. I also found the the in-hand feel to be good, although the gold colour is too loud for my liking. Software is one major area where the phone loses some points. You get the basics of Android 13 but the bloatware apps, coupled with ads, hamper the usage experience. Overall, if you want a phone which is sleek, lightweight, offers good battery life and decent performance, the Narzo N53 can be considered.

Comment

ARM Mali-G52 MP1: Integrated mid range graphics card with 1 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node. The MC1 / MP1 variant is the smallest version.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


T612: Entry level octa core SoC with two fast ARM Cortex A75 cores at up to 1.8 GHz and six power efficient ARM Cortex A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz. The SoC furthermore includes a LTE modem (TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TDSCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM), an ARM Mali G52MP1 GPU and a tri core ISP. The chip is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm FinFET.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.74":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

73.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
