Both Samsung mobile phones use a 64-megapixel main photo sensor and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor. The Galaxy S21 adds a 12-megapixel lens, while the Galaxy A53 5G has two more 5-megapixel sensors for macro shots and portrait optimization.

The fingerprint reader is installed under the screen of Samsung and Google while in profile on Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Poco X4 Pro. Note the presence of an infrared transmitter on these last two models, which allows you to turn them into a universal remote control.
What is the most striking display?
Simply put, Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Poco X4 Pro are equipped with the same screen. They are based on a flat AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.67 inches, a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. They support HDR image modes and display a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. It’s the same definition as the other devices in this comparison, but they all have an AMOLED panel with slightly smaller diagonals. The Galaxy A53 5G display is 6.5 inches, compared to 6.2 inches for the Galaxy S21 and 6.1 inches for the Pixel 6a display. The latter is the only one with a frequency limited to 60 Hz, so it offers less fluid scrolling. It is IP67 certified, so it is completely sealed against pure water and dust.
