Samsung Galaxy S23 Vs. Galaxy S22: Should You Upgrade? – SlashGear
As far as the S23 and S23 Plus are concerned, the marginal processor boost doesn’t justify the upgrade cost, even if you opt for a trade-in discount. Similar to recent iPhones, little has changed between generations. Yes, the S23 range has a better chip, but you’re unlikely to need the minor performance boost. The phone’s configuration hasn’t really changed. The performance boost is also likely offset by the higher drain the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 places on the battery. Samsung could do several things to mitigate this and the S23 has more battery capacity, but head-to-head, there’s a good chance an S22 will last a little longer.
Obviously, a spec sheet doesn’t tell the whole story. Chips on the same platform can have wildly different specifications. But as things stand, the S23 Ultra really doesn’t seem worth it. There’s a new processor and a bit of a camera upgrade on the back, but if the information we’ve received is accurate then that’s offset by a downgrade to the selfie camera. Not only is it not much of an upgrade from the S22 Ultra, but there’s also a good chance it will be closer to the basic S23 and S23 Plus in terms of specs than the S22 Ultra was to its basic models.
Our impressions might change when we get one in for review but as things stand, people with a recent Samsung might be better off waiting for next year. Pre-orders start today, and the new phones will be in stores starting on February 17.
