On paper, this Galaxy A33 5G has the same configuration as the 2021 model. So we see a four-fold photo sensor with a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens, whose lens opens at f / 1.8, an 8 Mpx ultra wide-angle (f / 2.2), a 5 Mpx (f / 2.4) macro module and a 2 Mpx (f / 2.4) Depth sensor. The Samsung-powered treatment is the most robust in this model.
We compared it Realme 9 Pro +Currently one of the best photophones in this price segment.
Main volume: 48 MP, f / 1.8, eq. 26 mm
The main 48MP module captures snapshots by default at 12MP. Like other smartphones, it takes advantage of technology Pixel binding It allows you to combine four pixels together.
During the day, the Galaxy A33 5G delivers a good quality shot. Treatment Made at Samsung Easily recognizable, especially thanks to the always saturated colors (found in the test table) and strong contrast. However, it does allow you to take advantage of a clearer and clearer photo. Realme 9 Pro + offers very detailed rendering, for example, allowing you to notice the roughness on the cover of a book or map. The color scale is very nice and gives a completely natural hue, but Samsung should not be ashamed in front of its (very good) rival.
In the dark things inevitably get complicated. On the weakly exposed display, the Galaxy A33 reduces the amount of digital smoothing detail of the 5G. So that the whole loses readability. The Realme 9 Pro + definitely makes a lot of noise, but the rendering is much better. In particular, we experience enhanced sharpness that allows for more accurate shots, even in low light.
48 MB mode
It is always possible to force the full definition by adjustment. So, we compared 12 MPX shots with 48 MPX shots. You can see the difference in the definition.
Day by day, this method is very interesting. Without significantly extending the grip, it allows you to benefit from a higher level of detail and teaches natural therapy rather than the standard mode. In the dark, digital smoothing is very visible and basically does not allow you to use the best shot. So this mode is reserved for scenes in bright environment.
Ultra-wide-angle volume: 8 Mpx, f / 2.2, 123
The ultra wide angle module unfortunately did not come as a surprise. During the day, the display is more exposed and less sharp, but usable. Details level is not optimal, but this is also the case with Realme 9 Pro +. The latter provides very different and saturated rendering, but we are far from the performance of the main sensor.
At night, both smartphones could not get out of the game. Digital noise occupies the image and the displays are almost unusable. Capture is even faster on the Realme 9 Pro +.
Front and video module
On the front, the Galaxy A53 does not have the very best 32 Mpx sensor, but the 13 Mpx volume that lens opens at f / 2.2. However, the shots are very successful and benefit from good sharpness, they are well exposed.
Wide-angle capable of shooting up to 4K at 30 fps, and up to 60 fps in full HD. We recommend the latter. The rendering is very accurate despite the difficulties in managing the highlights. So pay attention to the backlights.
