‘Samsung Galaxy S23 And Galaxy S23+’ Specifications And Review: Everything You Need To Know Before Buying

The very anticipated Samsung Galaxy S23 series was revealed on February 2, 2023, at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The South Korean tech giants unveiled three smartphones in the Galaxy S23 series, namely the S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra, of which the S23 Ultra became the center of attention. Though many are talking about the S23 Ultra, which has every specification to become one of the best flagships of 2023, the other two models are equally interesting from a specification and price point of view. Read further to get an idea of the other two models in detail.


Build And Design

The iconic contour cut of the Samsung Galaxy series has been removed from the S23 models, and that has provided a clean look, and the devices will lie flat on the table. The S23 weighs 168 g, while the S23+ weighs 196 g, and both have an aluminum chassis sandwiched between Gorilla Glass Victus 2 in the front and rear. Both models are extremely durable due to the presence of an Armor aluminum frame, which has enhanced scratch resistance, can withstand tough drops, and also has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Graphite, Lime, Phantom Black, Lavender, Green, and Cream are the available colors for the model, but you can also check Samsung’s official website for more color options.


Display

Both the S23 and S23+ boast an AMOLED 2X display that can reach a peak brightness of up to 1750 nits, which means you can even see things clearly on the screen under scorching sun rays. The devices are equipped with a 120 Hz refresh rate, making scrolling as smooth as ever, and with the adaptive refresh rate, it can drop down to 48 Hz to provide a longer battery life. The Samsung Galaxy S23 has a 6.1-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of around 86.8%, while the Samsung Galaxy S23+ has a 6.6-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of around 87.6%. Both devices come with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, and the S23 has a pixel density of around 425 PPI, while the S23 has around 393 PPI.


Technical

All the models in the Samsung S23 series are equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. They consist of an octa-core CPU and an Adreno 740 GPU. All of them run on Android 13, which is again topped by Samsung’s own One UI 5.1. The interface has become much more polished, and there has been a marked improvement in the animations too. The company, along with Qualcomm, has worked on this processor and modified some features of the base variant; for that reason, it is able to clock at 3.36 GHz, which is a massive jump from 3.2 GHz. Multitasking and gaming with ease is fun on the S23 and S23+, and the devices never face lag or frame drops. The upgraded cooling systems of both devices also help to avoid unnecessary heating. Tuned by AKG, the stereo speakers perform well and provide clear, crisp, and balanced audio compared to the S22 series. Samsung has also promised security updates for up to five years and OS upgrades for up to four years, which is quite decent.


Camera

The triple camera setup for the S23 and S23+ is similar to the S22 and S22+, which includes 50 MP (wide), 10 MP (telephoto), and 12 MP (ultra-wide). But the implementation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has upscaled the performance massively. The photos taken by the device tend to be a bit on the warm side, but color accuracy and details are excellent. The OIS stabilization works perfectly, and the telephoto is capable of 3x optical zoom. The 12 MP front camera takes stunning selfies with excellent details and true color tones. In low-light conditions, too, both the front and the rear cameras perform remarkably well. Videos can be shot in 8K at 24/30 FPS with the rear and in 4K at 30/60 FPS with the front.


Battery And Connectivity

The S23 has a 3900-mAh battery, while the S23+ has a 4700-mAh battery. With the inclusion of the latest Snapdragon chipset, both devices are able to manage performance and provide great battery life simultaneously. With the S23, you get more than 15 hours of web browsing, over 8 hours of video playback, and more than 6 hours of 3D gaming, while the S23+ provides more than 16 hours of web browsing and over 6.30 hours of 3D gaming. Both models support 15W wireless and 4.5W reverse wireless, with the S23 having a 25W charger while the S23+ comes with a 45W. This is something Samsung should work on, as many other companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus are providing 120W and 100W, respectively. For seamless connectivity, both devices are equipped with WiFi 6, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.3, while the S23+ also has Ultra Wideband support.


Conclusion

Both the S23 and the S23+ are available for pre-order, and the base variant of the S23 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage has a price tag of $799, while the S23+ with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage has a price tag of $999. Google’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, as well as Apple’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, are the main rivals of the Samsung S23 and S23+. If you are looking to upgrade your phone to enjoy the flagship experience, both the S23 and the S23+ are good options, but if you want everything extreme, ranging from performance to camera and stylus inclusion, then you can check out the Samsung S23 Ultra.
