      You just don't have to upgrade every year, if you upgrade every 3rd year, it would be reasonable. Every 4th year even. I have an s20 and I'm still fine. Might upgrade on the next one. But if you have S21 and S22, not much difference.

    The Flickering is likely due to the refresh rate variation going from 48Hz to 120Hz. If you look closely, it only flickers when the image sits still (likely at 48Hz), but once you interact with the display, swipe, click on something etc, the flickering stops, probably going to 120Hz when you do it.

      @Shahid Najam Afridi no, it's not a bug, it's how it's meant to be to save battery. Whenever you are scrolling an article for example, while scrolling it's 120hz, but as soon as you stop, it goes down to 24hz cause there is no need for 120 cause there is no movement on screen. As soon as you touch the screen again, it instantly goes back to 120hz and you can't even notice the transition. For video, the refresh rate will not go lower than the refresh rate of the video itself, so if you're watching a 60fps video, the screen won't go down to 24hz, but instead stop at 60hz.

    Still rocking the S20 Ultra and it is still great. Feel like since the S20 Ultra, there haven't been any reason to upgrade. I upgraded from the S10+, and that was noticable. 120hz, 5000mah battery, the great camera, super snappy. And it still performs like that! S20 Ultra will probably be in my pocket for a good while more. Then I am thinking of trying out a Pixel phone.

    The best part about a new Samsung S-line release was that the previous year’s model got a massive discount (wherever it was still available) now with the S23 being essentially the same as the S22, it may mean that the S22 keeps its price a little longer.

    One thing you didn’t mention is how for the first time ever Samsung put the snapdragon chip in their phones in all regions, instead of having exynos in the eu and snapdragon in the us. Mrwhosetheboss mentioned this in his video, and overall it’s really great to see them finally fixing that mistake
    Edit: I get he isn’t from the EU/UK, but this is common knowledge, and I’m sure he just hadn’t heard yet when he made the video. I was just mentioning it in the comments to build on all of the other improvements of the s23 ultra compared to last year, since this is probably the biggest improvement of all.

    What I've seen over a bunch of videos is that the S23 Ultra is improved in the areas of low light, image stabilization, 8K photage and battery performance. Not enough for me to upgrade from an S21 Ultra but definitely noticeable improvements and for anyone on an older phone like S10+ or similar, it will be huge. Much of it will be true for the entire S23 range.

    I wish you would do a video explaining to the common person why these phones are able to take 200Mp photos on such a small lens. I feel like a lot of people are misinformed about how the pixel binning actually works. In short right they take 4 photos and fuse them into 1 bigger size photo. And vice versa when you take photos without the "200 MP" mode on it is taking 4 photos and compiling them into one better looking 12Mp photo.

    • Bosstown Dynamics
      Bosstown Dynamics Ай бұрын

      It's only using pixel binning to produce 12 MP photos, pixel binning is specifically a way of treating a sensor like a lower resolution sensor with a bit of a bump in IQ compared to if you just sampled some of the pixels to drop the resolution. Taking extra photos and stacking them together is, well, image stacking, and it's a basic form of computational photography.

      Iso-pro and hdr is the combining multiple photos different exposures, the hardware binning, or The Tetra pixel technology part of the success came with ISOCELL 2.0 the the advantage of the pixel separators bring better colour fidelity and the breakthrough non matalic separator that came with 2.0 allowed for no optical loss wish was the privous weakness. ISOCELL HP2 sensor is why we can now have high pixel count again.

    -[The camera lag can be eliminated by turning off all the ai settings like auto HDR, auto lens swap, sharpening and scene optimizer, then in the good lock app camera assistant turn on increase shutter speed. this also works for all S21-22 phones.
    - The flickering is the adaptive refresh rate turning the hz down to lower than what the camera is picking up to save battery when your not moving the screen,

    Planning to buy the S24 next year, maybe the plus version. Hoping for samsung to have something new and major improvements. The S24 is rumored to have the snapdragon 8 gen 3, not sure though but its something to hope for, its also the fact that some benchmark leaks have shown that it destroyed apple's A16 bionic, and possibly even the A17, by being more powerful on both single core and multi core performance.
    In fact i might even skip S24 entirely and go for S25 next next year, which will likely have a new generation of exynos chips, if the rumors are true, its gonna have 10 cores. TSMC's N3E method is also very interesting, its something we will see on the new generation of high end chips.
    Take this comment with a grain of salt, i am not even working on the chip industry, these are just rumors.

    I tried the s23 in store
    It has somehow been even MORE comfortable to hold than the s22, the material they used for the back is silky smooth to the point that it makes the s22 feel rough (it's not, the s22 I'd dilky smooth as well, that's how smooth the s23 feels) the edges are also a little less square and rough
    It's very comfortable and very light. Also, I thought the absence of the camera hump would look soulless, boring, and a "we've run out of ideas" type of redesign, but seeing it in person changed my mind. It honestly looks pretty great. I think I would go with the plus model, the normal 6.1 inch s23 makes videos look too "squished" imo, which is a shame because I am more of a fan of the narrow design (I have a z flip 3)
    Also if companies were to release new phones every 2 years I would not mind one bit
    Nothing feels new when you know your top of the line model is going to be replaced in just a years time

    I know people are saying we don't need yearly releases. But I think it's s great idea. When there's no big difference between the latest one and the year before, it doesn't make much sense for most people to buy the latest one. And since the new one's out, the old one's stock clearance sales make these high end phones (and that experience) more affordable for more people. And they aren't missing out on much either by not buying the latest and greatest. 🙃

      @F2P Gaming Castle Clash & More! generally brands drop the price on devices when a new one is coming out. if samsung is selling a flagship device at $1000, and the new model isn’t going to be out for another couple of years, there’s no incentive to cut the price of the $1000 device. the number of units sold shouldn’t decrease as much, since more and more ppl aren’t upgrading their devices annually, but we really won’t be able to know without numbers. i guess one of the questions could be what’s the number of ppl holding off purchasing a new device until the next model, compared to the number of ppl waiting until their device stops working?

    If the S23+ (even the S22+) had an option for 10GB RAM (it only has 8GB like my S20FE lol), I would take it over the S23/22 Ultra. The 3 cameras of the Plus are already enough for my use case. It looked like they just created the Plus to make you go for the Ultra. Sad as the Plus had the most potential to make me upgrade - but I was put off by the price to spec ratio.

    I've had the S10+ since 2019.
    Last year, I tried the S22 Ultra for a month. I felt the battery was very underwhelming for much I paid. $1700 for the 1TB model. After selling it on eBay, I bought a Certified Renewed S10+. I've had it for 11 months, and I'm debating if I should upgrade to the S23 Ultra or wait for the S24 series. I don't want to be underwhelmed by battery life again. And that 1TB ensures that I'll keep the phone for at least 4 - 5 years or even longer. For longevity, higher internal storage works better for me.

    I've been saying for a while that phone companies need to switch to a 2-3 year gap between new releases. It makes the difference actually noteworthy and not incremental for another $1000+, saves on e-waste, less FOMO, and makes the company have more time to perfect a better and more flashy release, saving money, more purchases, less material/Ewaste.

I may upgrade to S23 plus or Ultra (like the pen). Have Sony Xperia 5G for fine (better) photos. Also like my S20 for a small manageable phone with DEX. Got a Flip 4, not that great but a cute gimmick (like my Pixel 6a better). Not sure that the S23 line has DEX. All the best with your phone. Seems like Tmobile supports Samsung great and Pixel too, but somehow my $$$ Sony Experia 1 Mark 3 does not get the fastest data connection on Magenta Plus (but takes awesome photos, love the dedicated (high speed feature) shutter button.

    It's genuinely surprising that Samsung's phones still have the shifter lag on their cameras.

Every time I tried to move back to Samsung they've had the shutter lag and it's caused me to miss shots.

Unless some absolutely revolutionary tech comes out, it just wont be worth it. Went from the s6 Edge, to the s8, to the s10+ (for the underscreen ultrasonic fingerprint reader), to the s21 Ultra (for improved cameras), and now to the s23 Ultra for SD Chipset, improved cameras, and bigger storage.

    "Reshaped curve at the edges to better optimize for the S pen." This is actually the change I was looking for from the S22U. To clarify, writing and drawing, or any S pen use is not as comfortable as it could be when you have a curved display to the extent that the S22U was. When using a pen you want a flat canvas and want to take advantage of the entirety of the limited real estate of the phone display without worrying about hitting the curves. You want the pen to land where you predict it to and not have to avoid the sides of the canvas. This was a change that imo they had to make if they really wanted the phone to do justice to the succession of the Galaxy Notes and the market that they're wanting to carry over from it.

    I think only the S23 Ultra features an LTPO display but I'm glad to hear the small 23 is getting 1750 nits brightness tho. Wish Samsung would just give all 3 same tech display and brightness. It wouldn't bankrupt them

    I havent upgraded my phone since the S10+ but today I learned I finally get a free one. So I went with the 23 ultra. While I do wish we could go back a few years and bring the headphone jack, sd card slot, and removeable battery back I know what to expect with samsung so I'm excited.

    One thing that is being neglected in reviews - Samsung for some reason is NOT including ultra wide band in the regular 23 model, but is on the 23+ This impacts usage of accessories like smart tags. Why they continue to do this is beyond me.

    The edges on the S22U were too slippery on the curves for the s pen. If you came near it youll slip down from the screen.
    I guess thats why they made it more flat instead of curved like the s22u

    This year more than ever, I've realised we've plateaued with smartphone technology. I think you should go 3-4 years between upgrades now to get noticeable improvements and feel like you've got value for the extra money spent.

      Stuff like this is what I’ve been saying in the comments. People are already saying this is a huge leap but it’s the same thing every year. 1) it launches and the impressions seem good and the battery life “is better”. 2) regular people get the phone and it’s the same as last year and sometimes it performs worse lol

    If I'm not wrong, they always made the Exynos chipsets based on Snapdragon chipsets but with more cores and overclocking their cores because of which Samsung with Exynos chipsets were known to have battery drain issues and heating issues back then so it's no wonder they tried to overclock the 8 Gen 2

    I ordered the 512GB Ultra. 1064€ with trade-in of my OnePlus 8 Pro. Can't wait to test out the cameras! It's also the first time in a looong while we're getting a Samsung flagship phone with a Snapdragon processor here in Europe. We've been stuck with the inferior Exynos stuff.

    Well I decided to upgrade from s10+ I had it 3.5y and the main reason is the stylus plus snapdragon processor for the first time in the European market.
    My phone is still good and will become my full time car / HGV sat nav. I do have S8 ultra tablet and that blows away my old phone that starts to lag...
    Pre-order deal was ok also 10% off , 512gb 12gb ram for what 256gb is priced for in UK and case 30% off. Still expensive but I use the phone like a mobile laptop so the cost is justified for device to keep for 3-4 years to come.
