Galaxy A53 vs iPhone SE3 simultaneous sortie
Camera is Galaxy, Chipset is iPhone Win
Galaxy A53 and iPhone SE 3rd generation. [Photo provided by each company] Its time to change your smartphone. There is only 60,000 won in the water. Although the amount is not enough to buy a phone, Samsung and Apple recently released smartphones priced at 590,000 won, and an opportunity arose. Since the price is the same, I carefully compared the two products.
Samsung Electronics and Apple are conducting advance reservations for Galaxy A53 and iPhone SE 3rd generation from the 18th to the 24th of this month. The official release date of the Galaxy A53 is April 1st and the iPhone SE is the 25th of this month. The Galaxy A53 is available in three colors: blue, black, and white, and is priced at 599,500 won. The iPhone SE comes in three colors, black, white, and red, and starts at 590,000 won.
First of all, as for the display, the Galaxy A53 has a much larger screen than the iPhone SE. The Galaxy A53 screen is 6.5 inches, similar to the Galaxy S22 Plus. On the other hand, the iPhone SE 3rd generation is 4.7 inches. Of course, just because the screen is small doesnt mean the iPhone SE isnt good. Because not everyone wants a big screen phone. iPhone SE seems to be suitable for women with small hands or customers who want a smaller size.
Galaxy A53 and iPhone SE 3rd generation. [Photo provided by each company] iPhone SE is ahead of AP, which acts as the brain of a smartphone. The new iPhone SE is equipped with the same A15 Bionic chipset that was used in the iPhone 13. The A15 Bionic is a chip made independently by Apple. It is evaluated as the best performing chip in existence.
The new 5nm Exynos 1280 is expected to be installed in the Galaxy A53 5G. Since it is a new chipset, there is not much information, but the industry estimates that the performance will be lower than that of the A15 Bionic.
Nine to Five Mac said the Exynos 1280 will have a hard time keeping up with the performance of the iPhone SE A15 Bionic chip, and based on past performance for Android devices, the A15 Bionic chip is likely to outperform the Exynos 1280 chip.
As for the camera, the Galaxy A53 is better than the iPhone SE. The Galaxy A53 is equipped with a 64-megapixel basic camera with optical image stabilization, a 64-megapixel OIS camera on the back, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5-megapixel depth camera, and a 5-megapixel close-up camera. The front is a 32-megapixel single camera.

The rear 12-megapixel camera supports OIS, and the front camera is 7-megapixel. Compared to the simple specifications, the Galaxy A53 camera performance is much better. However, the picture quality may vary depending on the post-editing capability of its own software in addition to the basic hardware.
As for storage capacity, the Galaxy A53 is equipped with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory, and the iPhone SE has 4GB of RAM and 64, 128, and 256GB of internal memory. Comparing the same price of the Galaxy A53 and the iPhone SE 64GB model in the same line, the Galaxy A53 wins by a landslide.
The battery of the Galaxy A53 is 5000mAh. This is the same capacity as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which costs 1.5 million won. The battery capacity of the iPhone SE is not yet known, but it is expected to be much larger than its predecessor, the iPhone SE 2nd generation.
The charging speed is 25W for the Galaxy A53 and 20W for the iPhone SE. In common, both models are equipped with 5G communication support, fingerprint recognition unlocking, and IP67 rating of waterproof and dustproof.
