Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Review

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is Samsung’s most premium smartphone in 2023. It has many significant improvements over its predecessor S22 Ultra, especially in terms of camera, performance, and battery. However, it also has some weaknesses such as a familiar design, high price, and not faster charging. The following are detailed reviews of aspects of Samsung galaxy s23 ultra.

Design and colors

The Samsung galaxy s23 ultra has a similar design to the S22 Ultra, with a 6.8-inch curved screen and a glass back. The chassis is made of metal and dustproof according to IP68 standards. A novelty is that Samsung has used many recycled materials in the design of the S23 Ultra, such as recycled glass, recycled PET, and recycled marine plastic. This minimizes the impact on the environment and increases the sustainability of the product.

One big difference of the S23 Ultra compared to the S22 Ultra is that the S Pen is built into the body. You can pull out your pen to write, draw, and perform smart actions on the screen. The S Pen also has Bluetooth connectivity for remote control. However, the S Pen is only available on the S23 Ultra version, not on the S23 or S23 Plus.

Samsung galaxy s23 ultra comes in a variety of colors to choose from, including green, black, chamomile cream, and purple. In addition, on Samsung’s official website, you can choose other exclusive colors such as lemon green, grafit gray, sky blue and red.

This screen has high resolution, vivid colors, a maximum brightness of up to 1750 nits, and is HDR10+ certified. The screen is also capable of adapting refresh rates from 1Hz to 120Hz depending on the displayed content, helping to save battery life and provide a smooth experience.

The screen of the S23 Ultra is also optimized for the use of the S Pen. The screen has a larger flat area than the S22 Ultra, allowing you to write and draw more easily. The screen is also capable of detecting the pressing force of the pen up to 4096 levels, allowing you to express different letters and textures.


The camera is the most prominent feature of the Samsung galaxy s23 ultra. The device has up to 5 rear cameras, of which the main camera has a resolution of up to 200MP. This is the camera with the largest sensor on smartphones today, allowing more light and detail to be captured. You can take photos in 200MP mode for flexible cropping and editing later, or take photos in 12MP mode to reduce noise and increase brightness.

In addition to the main camera, the S23 Ultra also has a 12MP wide-angle camera that allows you to capture a variety of landscapes and people in the frame. The wide-angle camera also has optical stabilization and dual autofocus, allowing you to capture clear and stable images.

The S23 Ultra also has two telephoto cameras so you can zoom close to distant subjects. The 10MP telephoto camera allows you to 3x optical zoom or up to 30x digital zoom. The other telephoto camera also has a resolution of 10MP but allows you to 10x optical zoom or up to 100x digital zoom. Both telephoto cameras have optical stabilization so you don’t get blurred when zooming.

Finally, the S23 Ultra also has an autofocus laser camera to help the camera focus quickly and accurately. This camera works by emitting a laser and receiving back the reflected light from objects in the frame.

The front camera of the S23 Ultra has a resolution of 12MP, higher than that of the S22 Ultra (10MP). This camera allows you to take selfies in high quality and record 4K 60fps video.
