Realme Narzo N53 review in 10 points


The Realme Narzo N53 has a very attractive back panel but the overall build is similar to other budget phones in this segment. We have the Feather Gold colour variant which shimmers under light. The phone is also very light in hand as it weighs 182 grams.


The Realme Narzo N53 has a 6.74-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. The brightness levels are decent for mild outdoor usage under sun. It also has Widevine L3 support for HD streaming on OTT platforms.

Rear Camera

The Realme Narzo N53 has a 50MP primary sensor paired with a 2MP macro camera sensor. The images captured are acceptable but lack colour accuracy and detailing has an over processed dynamic range.The low-light images aren't that great either. However, the software processing keeps the noise levels down in the low lighting conditions.

Front Camera

The Realme Narzo N53 features an 8MP front camera. It manages to take decent pictures but has an extra amount of facial retouching applied to the images.


The Realme Narzo N53 features the Unisoc's T612 SoC paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage which is further expandable. It can easily handle day-to-day tasks and run low end games without issues. However, the device will lag under high intensity tasks like heavy gaming or multitasking.


The Realme Narzo N53 runs on Realme UI T-edition which is based on Android 13. The device contains a lot of bloatware. You don't get a lot of customisation options but the software skin does a decent job.


The Realme Narzo N53 has a 5,000mAh battery. The devices not-so-heavy performance gives it a decent battery life. In PCMark's Battery life test the device resulted in 16 hours 19 minutes, which is a very good benchmark.


The Realme Narzo N53 supports 33W fast charging. It takes up to two hours for the device to go from 0 to 100 percent.


The Realme Narzo N53 is a decent buy under the budget of Rs 10,000. It has an attractive back panel, decent display and lasting battery life. Moreover, the phone is lightweight and also supports 33W fast charging. But, it has plenty of bloatware and is not the best performer. If these flaws don't make much of a difference to your usage, the device is a good buy in its price range.
