Here are 5 features that made the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra the best flagship smartphone for 2023.
Most Powerful Processor
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G uses a special chip “for Galaxy” Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Compared to the standard version, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy has 5.3% and 5.7% higher CPU and GPU clock speeds making it the most powerful flagship chipset out there.
Aside from that, the custom SoC is also the first chipset to use Snapdragon’s Cognitive ISP to enable real-time Semantic Segmentation. That means that it will understand objects in captured photos or videos to enhance its processing capability and generate superior images.
Versatile Camera Setup
While having the most advanced 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor primary camera, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G has the most versatile camera setup that no others smartphone came close to.
It covers from 13mm and up to 230mm equivalent focal lengths for any occasion or situation. You can check my article on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G – Ultimate Camera Setup for Travel.
The display of the Galaxy S23 Ultra is undoubtedly among the finest in the market, boasting vibrant colors and exceptional performance in our laboratory evaluations. Specifically, it features a 6.8-inch QHD OLED display with a 3088 x 1400 pixels resolution, identical to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Moreover, it has a rated peak brightness of 1,750 nits and supports a 120Hz refresh rate that can be adjusted to as low as 1Hz.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra is equipped with an innovative Vision Booster functionality, which enables you to modify the color and contrast of the screen in accordance with the surrounding lighting conditions. Additionally, it incorporates an eye comfort feature that enhances the viewing experience by reducing eye strain.
It may not have any battery capacity upgrade this round but the battery life has improved significantly by at least 20% compared to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G. This brought us closer to the battery champ, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G also earned an excellent global score from DxOMark in best battery life for the Ultra-Premium segment.
When comes to stylus pen input, there are basically “zero” competitors except for Samsung’s own devices. Personally, I don’t find the S Pen a game-changer but it’s certainly nice to have if you like the idea of taking notes, drawing, and sketching on your device. The S Pen also can be use as a remote camera shutter option when needed to take a group selfie.
