The mid-range market is getting way too competitive these days. With Pixel 7a right around the corner, Samsung decided to amp up its mid-range game by announcing the Galaxy A54. And even if you do not like the mid-budget devices from Samsung, the A54 5G is something that you would like to check out.
Wondering what makes the Galaxy A54 5G so special? First of all, it looks just like the standard Galaxy S23. Secondly, the specs that Samsung integrated into the mid-range device are pretty great too. But is the phone worth the $450 price tag? In short, yes. And once you take an in-depth look into the specs, you will understand why.
In-Depth Look at the Galaxy A54 5G
So, on the front of the Galaxy A54 5G, you have a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display. And the good part about the display is that it can reach a reasonably high brightness level. In fact, according to Samsung, the display is rated for 1000 nits in broad daylight. But that is not the only great thing about the display.
The Samsung Galaxy A54 5 G’s screen can even run at a whopping 120Hz refresh rate. Now, if you take a closer look into the mid-range devices, FHD AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate is not really that common. In comparison, the upcoming Pixel 7a is likely to be capped at 90Hz.
On the note of the high refresh rate, it will not take a big toll on the battery life. The Galaxy A54 packs a large 5000mAh battery, which should offer you great run time. Looking back, the Galaxy A53 with the same battery capacity lasted for around 19 hours.
You also get fast charging capabilities. The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G can charge at 25W in wired mode. That should allow you to get the battery juiced up fast when it hits 0%.

How Does It Compare to the Standard Galaxy S23
If you want to talk about Galaxy S23 vs Galaxy A54 5G, you will find a couple of key differences. Of course, the first one would be the SoC. While the Galaxy S23 comes with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, the A54 boasts Exynos 1380. Yes, the Exynos 1380 will not offer flagship-grade performance. But it will surely deliver a smooth experience on day-to-day apps.
Secondly, the battery of the Galaxy A54 is reasonably larger than the Galaxy S23. The first comes with a 5000mAh battery, while the latter has a 3900mAh battery. However, you are losing the wireless charging and reverse wireless charging feature with the A54.
There’s a difference in terms of the camera setup too. The back of the Galaxy A54 comes with a 50MP main shooter, 12MP ultrawide, and 5MP macro lens. On the Galaxy S23, you will find a 10MP telephoto sensor instead of a macro lens. And if you asked me, the telephoto camera makes more sense than the macro sensor.
You also find a different camera on the front of the devices. While the Galaxy S23 has a 12MP (f/2.2) sensor, the A54 comes with a 32MP (f/2.2) selfie camera. So, with the A54, you are likely to get better video calling and selfie picture experience.
Other than that, you will not have the ability to extend the storage with the Galaxy S23. The A54 has a microSD card slot, allowing you to expand the phone’s storage to up to 1TB. This extra storage ability will surely come in handy if you plan to take high-res images and videos with the phone.
Lastly, there is a huge difference in terms of price. The Galaxy A54 5G starts at $449, while the standard Galaxy S23 starts at $799. So, in comparison, the A54 5G has a better value than the S23. However, the S23 is surely going to beat the A54 in performance.
