The most awaited Samsung Galaxy S23 phones are finally here! If you are planning on upgrading from Samsung Galaxy S22 or any other previous phone model, but are still are unable to decide, this article is just for you. We have provided a brief synopsis of Samsung S23 features compared with Samsung S22 - what has changed, and what are the main improvements.
Although the Samsung S23 and Samsung S23 Plus boast the most updated hardware and software, Samsung S22 and Samsung S22 Plus are still great phones with many of the same features. In order to determine which of these Samsung phone models is ideal for you, we will attempt to analyze the similarities and differences between them.
Design and Display
The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22 share the same standard 6.1-inch and 6.6-inch Plus sizes, but with just a few minor visual variations. The Samsung S22 cameras are grouped together in a rectangular camera block, in contrast to the Galaxy S23's cameras, which are split on its rear. However, Samsung sure has modified the colour options for the S23 models. While the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus are available in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, Pink Gold, and Bora Purple, the Galaxy S23 is only available in Phantom Black, Cream, Green, and Lavender shades.
In addition to having the same dimensions, the Samsung S23 and Samsung S22's panels also have an FHD resolution and a 48Hz to 120Hz variable refresh rate. One minor adjustment is that the Galaxy S23 now has a maximum brightness rating of 1,750 nits, the same as the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S22 Plus. The Samsung Galaxy S22 standard model had a 1,300 nit rating. The Samsung Galaxy S23 uses Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on its front and back, as opposed to Gorilla Glass Victus Plus in the Samsung Galaxy S22.
When upgrading to the Galaxy S23, Samsung hasn't made any changes to the Galaxy S22's rear cameras. Thus, with both the Samsung phones you get a 50MP primary camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 10MP 3x optical telephoto camera. Samsung claims to have enhanced its Nightography camera and introduced new features such as an astro hyperlapse mode for taking long-term photos of the stars and 8K recording at 30 frames per second for smoother video. Samsung Galaxy S23's only new camera is on the front, which has a 12MP sensor as opposed to Samsung Galaxy S22's ageing 10MP sensor, resulting in much livelier and more detailed selfies.
The Galaxy S22 was equipped with the best Android chipset available at the time of its release, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. For the Galaxy S23, Samsung has brought in Snapdragon chips for all markets, specifically the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy. That "for Galaxy" part is significant because it indicates a higher performance version of the chip that's exclusive to Samsung phones. Even if other Android phones launch with the Gen 2 chip, it won't be as powerful as Samsung's.
Both Samsung S22 and Samsung S23 have only 8GB of RAM, which isn't a lot but still is sufficient for multitasking. Storage on the Galaxy S23 begins at 128GB and goes upto 256GB, similar to the Galaxy S22, but the Galaxy S23 Plus comes with Storage Boost option. It now starts at 256GB and goes up to 512GB storage, up from the 128GB standard and 256GB optional storage on the Galaxy S22 Plus.
Battery & Charging
Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus batteries have an increased capacity compared to previous models. While, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus had 3,700 mAh and 4,500 mAh batteries, respectively, the S23 and S23 Plus now have 3,900 mAh and 4,700 mAh batteries. However, charging has remained unchanged. The Galaxy S23 charges at 25W wired and 10W wireless, just like the Galaxy S22, and the Galaxy S23 Plus charges at 45W/10W, just like the Galaxy S22 Plus. Furthermore, no charger is included in the box, only a USB-C cable.
