These are the Best Samsung Galaxy A53 5G Deals in 2022

The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G picks off as Samsung’s widely available mid-ranger that serves the needs of most people and use cases. The phone serves as a great value option in the USA where it will be a de-facto choice under $500, especially when it goes against the Apple iPhone SE 3. If you’re looking to get the phone, we recommend snagging a great deal to sweeten the deal even further, and you can use the saved up money to get yourself a good case or a nice screen protector. So here are some of the best deals on the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G!

The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G starts at $450 in the US. Pre-orders for the device went live on March 17, while open sales began on April 1 across major retailers and carriers. For the Galaxy A53 5G, Samsung is offering a Galaxy Buds Live as a pre-order bonus. Since the phone misses out on the headphone jack, getting the TWS alongside helps out buyers with a pretty good pair of earphones that works seamlessly with Galaxy devices. Also note that the device does not come with a charger in the box, so do grab a charger as well while you are at it.


Best Samsung Galaxy A53 5G Unlocked Deals

If you’re looking for the carrier-unlocked version of the Galaxy A53 5G, then you should be checking out major retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, alongside Samsung’s own online store. Listings for the Galaxy A53 5G are not yet live everywhere, but they should be going live soon enough.

Samsung Store

Samsung’s online store is the premier destination if you want to get any of Samsung’s recently launched products for a great deal. For smartphones, Samsung USA also offers some rather lucrative trade-in deals that make it cheaper to jump onto the latest smartphone.

    Samsung's own website should be the first place you check whenever you plan to buy a Samsung smartphone, including this Galaxy A53 5G.

Amazon is often preferred by a lot of people since they can take advantage of their Prime memberships and available credits as well as buy their other necessities from the platform. Pricing for the device remains the same: $450 for Unlocked.

    Amazon can be a Prime choice for many people, and you can get the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G for the same price here.

Best Buy

If your retailer of choice is Best Buy, perhaps because of its Best Buy Total Tech membership, then you’d be glad to know that Best Buy also keeps the Galaxy A53 5G. Pricing for the device remains the same: $450 for Unlocked as well as for AT&T and Verizon versions. You can opt for installment payments for the carrier versions.

    Best Buy is offering the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G at the same price as other online retailers.

Best Samsung Galaxy A53 5G Carrier Deals

In the US, people do prefer buying their device directly from the carrier they will be using it on. Thankfully for the Galaxy A53 5G, you will be able to find it available on most carriers and MVNOs operating in the country.


Verizon sells an “UW” version of the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G, which is essentially a moniker to denote mmWave 5G support. The full retail price of the Galaxy A53 5G UW is $500 for the 128GB version (plus a $35 activation fee), but you can also opt for a standard 36-month plan and get it for $10 per month on a new line alongside a $35 activation fee. Verizon offers in-store pickup as well as free 2-day delivery. And if you do plan to use the phone on Verizon, it makes sense to sign into the website to see if there are any personalized offers available for you.

    Verizon is offering a mmWave 5G version of the Galaxy A53 5G as the UW model. You can get it on a standard 36 month plan for $10 per month on a new line.


For AT&T, you are restricted to the non-mmWave version of the device, and that’s not really a dealbreaker in my opinion. There’s the standard $450 pricing for full retail, but you can opt for $12.50 per month for 36-month installments. You get the option to opt for AT&T Next Up by an additional $5 per month, which entitles you to jump to a new phone once you have paid off 50% of the price of this one. AT&T also has free shipping as well as an optional free device setup service in case you need some assistance. As with Verizon, you can sign into the website to see if there are any personalized offers available for you.

    AT&T has the Galaxy A53 5G available for full retail as well as for $12.50 per month for 36 months. The carrier has offers on upgrades as well as optional device setup.


T-Mobile also sells the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G. You can buy the device for $450 full retail (plus SIM activation charge). However, the company does have an offer running on the device. You can get the Galaxy A53 5G for just $99 if you add a new line: you pay $18.75 per month for 24 months but receive $351 back in the form of 24 monthly bill credits, effectively costing you just $4.12 per month. As with other carriers, you can sign into the website to see if there are any personalized offers available for you.

    T-Mobile offers the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G for just $99 effectively as long as you add a new line.

While the Galaxy A53 5G is a good device, there is a valid argument to be made on how good its own predecessors were. The Galaxy A52 5G and the Galaxy A52s 5G are arguably better smartphones than the A53 5G, especially since you get to keep a better processor (Snapdragon 750G/Snapdragon 778G vs the Exynos 1280) and get to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack. It is worth considering the predecessors as valid purchase options, so do take a look at what is on offer from these retailers and decide accordingly. Let us know which device you choose in the end and what deal did you take!
