The next flagships of Samsung have been introduced to the market, consisting of three brand new Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones which are the regular S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra. If you are interested in this lineup and wondering which phone you should buy, this post will give you a clear comparison between these three models. Hopefully, this post will help you to decide at some points. Even though they are clearly similar to each other, there are some significant differences that you might consider. However, your economic status and demand are the decisive factors.
1. What’s New On These Phones?
The designs, processors and displays are obviously almost the same on these phones. They are all powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip with 8 GB of RAM worldwide which makes them among the most powerful Android smartphones in the market. Expectedly, the flagships are faster and perform more smoothly than their predecessors. Apart from S23 Ultra, S23 and S23+ both have the same design with curved edges, which are squared on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. All three phones are featured with the traditional AMOLED screens from Samsung with impressive brightness. The Korean chaebol gives you such great diversity with 8 different color options.
2. What Are The Notable Differences?
The bigger the phone, the more expensive it is! Respectively, it costs you $800, $1000 and $1200 for the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. Therefore, for each extra $200 you spend, Samsung delivers more powerful hardware and performance. The S23 and S23+ are actually almost the same with so little upgrade. S23+ only has a bigger screen and faster charging speed, as obviously, a longer lasting battery. Moreover, S23+ does not come with a 128GB version like the regular S23. Therefore, basically, S23+ is just a larger version if you want more space and a bigger screen. It would be quite difficult for people with small hands to grab it with just one hand.
The real game changer is S23 Ultra. Since Samsung has discontinued its own Galaxy Note lineup, the Ultra is now officially the new Note. Apart from a 6.8 inch display and a 5,000-mAh battery, the camera of this phone is actually the star since it might zoom 100x which is similar to its predecessor, S22 Ultra. This is a great feature that many people wish to experience, especially at public events like at a music concert. S23 Ultra is also equipped with an S Pen that allows you to do some sketching or take notes with your phone. Also, its large display allows you to play games or enjoy your favorite shows (entertainment purposed) to the fullest.
If you already own a phone from the Galaxy S22 lineup, it is definitely not worth upgrading to these new phones because there are only a few upgrades. Except for your own preference to own a brand new Galaxy phone. For users with a budget who wish to own a Galaxy S phone, it is recommended to wait for a little bit more so that the price of the S22 lineup drops. Then, you will get the chance to own a flagship with an appealing price.
