Last Wednesday Samsung presented the Galaxy S23, a new generation of smartphones that we already knew quite well, because so much had been leaked about them that, in the end, we were very clear about what we could expect. So much so that, in fact, a week before its presentation, even the prices in Spain were leaked, they pointed to a rise that was finally confirmed.
With the post-launch hangover over, today we want to give you a voice so that you can tell us what do you think of the Galaxy S23. There are many interesting things to comment on, so the comments are all yours, although before finishing I want to be, as usual, the first to get wet with an opinion.
In terms of design, I like the change in the rear island that Samsung has introduced in the Galaxy S23 and S23+, because it gives them a cleaner and more uniform finish. Unfortunately, that’s the only major changeso in general terms we find a clear continuity of which, in the end, other greats have also sinned with their new terminals, such as Apple.
Few design changes, but the most important thing is inside. The most interesting novelty that the Galaxy S23 and S23+ bring is, without a doubt, the jump to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “Galaxy” SoC, a special chip that comes with a small performance increase over the standard model, and which is a significant leap over the Exynos 2200 of the previous generation. There is nothing else to highlight, at least on paper.
In the case of the Galaxy S23 Ultra we have a major improvement in the rear camera, since this model integrates a next-generation 200 MP sensor that far exceeds the 108 MP present in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. There are no changes in other aspects, not even in the front camera or in the base configuration of RAM memory.
With all that said I think you can intuit my opinion. The Galaxy S23 positioned on their own merits at the top of the sectorare premium terminals in their own right and undoubtedly offer an excellent level of features, but they sin of excessive continuity on all fronts, and they only really justify the generation and nomenclature change due to the use of a new SoC. As for the price, I think excessive, although along the lines that we are seeing lately in the sector. Now it’s your turn, the comments are yours.
