128GB Samsung Galaxy A53 5G Unlocked Smartphone (Black) $350

Look like the Samsung A53 deal is back at Amazon again.

I personally is waiting for Pixel 6a (for $450). But I think for $350, this is not a bad deal if u need a phone now.

Samsung A53 is not a perfect phone (see the other threads for pros / cons of this phone). But then, for the price, it can't be perfect Smilie

No it’s considered a mid range phone. Camera and processor not great.

8T...Read the reviews on this phone. Poor performance due to junky exynos. Battery life is underwhelming. A52 5g loads apps faster too

Great news to share:
Samsung reportedly has 50 million unsold smartphones in inventory, comprised mostly of its Galaxy A-series devices.

Got this phone as a replacement for one of the kids. At $350 I think this is a decent deal. The phone has not had any issues, and performance has been perfectly fine. It's not meant to be a flagship phone and nobody expects flagship performance.

First thing we did was turn off the high refresh rate. Having that on by default kills the battery life for sure. We treat it like a feature to be turned on only when it really makes sense rather than on all the time.

Other than setting expectations, there's not much else here to say. Someone who games a ton on their phone should probably look elsewhere. If you want an inexpensive upgrade for an existing mid-level phone for the money it's good enough.

Looks like a good deal. A53 is 49, monthly plan is $40...does one need to pay for two month to get the deal?

They will usually make you pay for the $60 plan for 1 month though you can downgrade online to $30 plan and get credit for a second month. Most stores charge $20 activation fee so $60 + $50+$20 plus tax on the phone.
