samsung: Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra review: All about improvements


Samsung’s premium flagship smartphone, the S23 Ultra, is its most powerful offering, with substantial and practical improvements. Here’s a lowdown on what works and what doesn’t.

Big Plus
The smartphone’s familiar industrial design with sharp edges and flat rails makes it comfortable to hold despite a massive 6.8-inch Edge Dynamic AMOLED 2X QHD+ display. It also has a solid build quality.

Best Point
Its design may be similar from previous iterations, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is powerful and power efficient. It handles everything you throw at it. The new 200-megapixel sensor is another major improvement. Samsung has also made some changes to the entire camera’s processing. As a result, it captures more light, provides better details, offers rich portraits, and is impressive for low-light photographs.

Standout Feature
The S Pen is one feature that stands out and is the key differentiator of the S23 Ultra. Besides, its new Astrophotography mode and 50-megapixel expert RAW features are other worthy improvements.

The X-factor
The Galaxy S23 Ultra is equipped with two dedicated telephoto lenses, – MP sensors, and 3x and 10x telephoto zoom. The zoom quality is unparalleled and produces a sharp and colour-rich output.

What Could Have Been Better
It only offers Wi-Fi 6E, while even other relatively affordable smartphones offer Wi-Fi 7 support. It could also have been priced lower.

Should I Go For It?
Definitely, if you are a power user and looking for all the bells and whistles in a smartphone. Starting at Rs 1,24,999, the Galaxy S23 Ultra offers an impressive display, camera, performance, and battery. It is a no-brainer for anyone looking for a premium Android phone.
