For all Samsung lovers and cellphone store owners, there is a new galaxy in town, the new Samsung Galaxy S23. It has three variants S23, S23 Plus, and S23 ultra
Let’s dig deep into this new flagship Samsung phone:
200 Megapixel Camera
The Galaxy S23 Ultra has the most significant new feature. The primary camera is a brand-new 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 sensor from Samsung. In terms of megapixels, it represents an improvement over the S22 Ultra, which retained the 108-megapixel camera from the S21 Ultra.
Why do you need a 200-megapixel camera? On the surface, it appears to be complete overkill and a marketing ploy, and in some ways, it is. The sensor has pixel binning that combines several megapixels to produce bigger pixels and smaller pictures. The extra resolution allows for better detail and lighting in these smaller photographs, which are 12 megapixels in size by default.
You would struggle to detect a discernible difference between photos taken with the S23 Ultra and those with other flagship phones in strong lighting settings. Samsung maintains a little saturation increase while balancing exposure and highlights to provide impressive results. With this camera, you can’t take a terrible photo.
Stylish Design With Maximum Durability
The cameras on the back of this eye-catching smartphone have a frosted glass surface, and the sides are glossy aluminum rails, giving it a premium appearance. The sides are far flatter than they formerly were, giving the gadget a comparable feel to earlier Galaxy Note models.
Phantom Black, Lavender, Cream, and Green are the S23 Ultra’s four standard colors (the color I got to review). Lime, Sky Blue, Graphite, and Red are the other four hues exclusive to Samsung.com. If you’re looking to add a little style to your next phone, you might want to pick it up because they are much flashier than the standard finishes are.
Samsung improved the S23 Ultra’s durability as well. As opposed to the Victus Plus glass of the S22 Ultra, the smartphone has Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the front and rear. With an IP68 certification that allows you to submerge your phone in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes, it offers durability against unintentional drops and protects from dust.
The S23 Ultra’s 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display is just as stunning as it was on the S22 Ultra. The clarity, color calibration, and contrast of Samsung’s displays are among the greatest you’ll find on any phone. The 3088 x 1440 resolution makes everything, from viewing the newest movies to scrolling through TikTok.
To prevent content from spilling over as readily in this generation, Samsung lowered the curves on the left and right edges. Also, whether you’re watching a movie or playing a game, it just looks much prettier.
The S23 Ultra is much brighter than the S22 Ultra, making it much simpler to see in strong sunshine. While the S23 Ultra may go as high as 1,750 nits, the S22 Ultra can only achieve a maximum of 1,300 nits. I had my sunglasses on earlier this month as I was strolling around the sunny Bronx and had no trouble seeing everything on the screen. At 2,000 nits, my iPhone 14 Pro Max can get a little brighter, but I noticed that the difference was insignificant compared to the Ultra.
Quick speed and responsive software
Samsung crammed the S23 Ultra full of powerful components. There is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU in addition to 8GB or 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage (also known as the fastest storage available on smartphones). The OnePlus 11 and other 2023 Android flagships have roughly the same processor as Samsung, but Samsung has persuaded Qualcomm to allow them to slightly boost the CPU and graphics, making the S23 series marginally quicker than the competition.
All-inclusive, long-lasting battery
The 5,000mAh battery in the Galaxy S23 Ultra is the same size as the battery in the S22 Ultra from the previous year. The S23 Ultra can run even longer on a full charge than that other phone.
