The Samsung Galaxy S23 is the new compact top model smartphone from the popular phone manufacturer from South Korea. With considerably faster hardware, a larger battery, good cameras, and Samsung’s well-known long support, the Galaxy S23 is the Android phone to beat in 2023.

The main highlight is a slightly higher clock rate than other Android phones. Another novelty is its set of cameras, now we have a main sensor of 50 MP with OIS (optical image stabilization), another ultrawide and a telephoto. Its design is reminiscent of what we saw on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, as the camera module was abandoned in favor of “floating lenses” at the rear.
