      @meetkaustubh rao there’s no point In doing a yearly launch because one they are producing more phones than they need to as not a lot of people change phone every year anymore and it’s producing more electrical waste and it’s just pointless it should be every few years and I don’t see a point on changing from my s22 ultra to the s23 as there’s not anything good enough for me to change for it’s a waste of money you should wait until your phone is obsolete then change

      Yea, most upgrades year to year are minor. I know there is a lot of new stuff in the S23 over the S22 ultra models but, to the real world, day to day, they would be minor to the average owner. The pictures are a little better but, the OS level stuff, is the same. I upgraded from a Note 10+ to a S23 Ultra, even apps, I would time an app opening and even some games, it was 2-3 seconds faster for a heavy game or maybe a 1/2 a second for Facebook or something. Not a game changer but, faster.
      You don't have to buy every year, every 3-5 years is ideal, by then there will be enough changes to make it worth it.

    I have used my S22 Ultra for a few months now, and I can't complain about anything. I moved from an S10+ so the jump was miles big and it really felt like it deserved the money even though I paid like 900$ for the phone. Seeing the S23 Ultra, I have to say that, even though I love the design of the S22, keeping it the exact same is not one of the best moves that Samsung made. Also, I bought the S22 mostly for the camera, which didn't disappoint at all. Seeing the new camera, I can say that it is definitely an upgrade, but I cannot say that it is worth to go from an S22 Ultra to an S23 Ultra. If you really need a better camera, for almost 1300$ it would be better to buy a DSLR and get better photos and videos, as the S22 Ultra has a more than good camera for day to day photos. I can see myself buying a new phone when the S24 Ultra appears maybe. Then the jump would be higher and the difference would definitely be worth it. I just hope that Samsung doesn't randomly decide to reduce the quality of the cameras with dumb software updates

    I got mine yesterday. Coming from a Note 10+ and the difference is really noticeable. The screen is far more vivid, thanks to the new and faster memory chips applications get installed much faster, the camera got better as well, especially in low light environments. For users with S22 Ultra this is probably not that huge upgrade, but for me it was. The Snapdragon is definitely one of the best features of this phone.

    I actually kind of like that Samsung hasn't changed their design. Like you said, the similarly to the previous model means that the internal improvements will take the spotlight and be more noticeable. It also prevents people from impulse buying a new phone just because it looks different, because I know there are people out there that do.

      Samsung has kept the design the same for the first time in 15+ years. Apple does it every 3/4 years then changes something. Why in any way would you expect Samsung used to hold Samsung feet to the fire for it for doing it this one time? Now if they do it next year and the phones still look the same then yes there will be reasons to be upset. You are making a problem in your head and getting upset because other people aren't agreeing with you.

    Ok one thing I want to point out here is that the phone lowering the highlight and increasing the shadows is really good for real estate photography. Usually, I would take three photos with a normal camera, one under exposed, one just right, and one over exposed. Then, in post I would combine those three photos together in order to get an even lighting. This would mean I have 3x less storage in my CFX type b card, and since I can't do this when I'm filming a video, it's a really nice feature that more phones should have. Also the stabilization is also an added bonus since normally I would need to buy a $500 dollar stabilizer just for it. So overall I'm impressed. Also that 8k is nice too.

    All phone companies are changing/upgrading their products less and less for each launch. But is a new model in any predominant brand even necessary? If they focused more on upgrading the software every year and only launching a phone when they reach a groundbreaking level of change and upgrades it would be really nice as well. Should make a video addressing this since you seem to have great impacts on the tech world. Love your videos btw great quality and thought put into each one!!!

    I hope to see a detailed comparison of battery usage test of S23U vs S22U snapdragon like you always did with iphones.
    Oh and a bit of rant, too bad samsung didn't make fully flat screen for the s23 Ultra, feel like missing or typo-ing some of the touches when on the edges of the screen.

    If they cared about the environment, they would include a charger. As you said, people normally don't get a new phone every year so odds are their current charger is also several years old and not able to charge at the same speed as the new phone can handle. So people buy new chargers with more packaging than Samsung would include in their box and many times an additional box and additional packaging material from Amazon. They care about the bottom line and pretend to care about recycling for purely PR purposes.

    Compared with my note 20 ultra s23 ultra has a smaller screen and is both heavier, thicker and wider. I think the biggest issue with the ultras is the size that has grown over what is comfortable to use and carry. I want to see a ultra spec at around 200gr max. I won't upgrade this time either cause at 208gr note 20 ultra is already on the limit. 234 gram and with a smaller screen doesn't really appeal.

My biggest issues is the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack ( as I don't like sharing the charging port with earphone port - I have airpods but prefer to use wired earphones), the removal of the micro SD card, as I used that in basically every single Samsung smartphone I've had since 2010...

    I'm going to get that phone just for the 8k. Although it maybe not be 100% 8k, it's still best price for an 8k anything. Usually I have to spend so much in order to get even a decent 6k camera which usually costs 4-5k dollars, which can at best do 4k 30fps. For example, Sony, used a 12 megapixel sensor for their 6,000 dollar camera Sony a7s iii, just so that it would have a better low light performance, because higher megapixel = more grain. And the fact that this small camera is able pull off such quality without any grain is just so mind boggling to me. AI too, normally Canon cameras are known for their dual pixel ai auto focus, which is the best one the market right now. And to hear that this camera has it is really crazy.

    I think more and more companies are going on the apple route and aren't making significant changes to the mobiles. Even though s23 ultra is better compared to the previous gen, it's more affordable to buy an s22 ultra instead of the new one because now it's more cheaper and there is not much to lose. It has become almost the same as iPhone 14 pro Max and 13 pro Max ( my opinion only)

    Loving my new S23 Ultra in every single way. I prayed for improved video quality over my Exynos S21 Ultra which was crippled by it's low bitrate and excess noise and mushy detail dropout, and my prayers were more than answered. Low light and indoor video is now stunning with massively reduced noise and massively increased detail all thanks in no small part to a much increased bitrate. Even at 4K60. Outdoor video now oozes detail and sharpness without oversaturating especially at (now gloriously usable) 8K, and the stabilization is incredible. Thanks for making my dreams come true for once Samsung. It shouldn't have taken so long for your video to be in the IPhone's league though.

    Does the S23 iteration come with more pre-installed bloatware?
    Also: without a bundled charger, there's a chance you rely on a charger that maybe doesn't charge at the phone's full potential.
    Others could be using third-party chargers which in general isn't recommended/adviced by manufacturers.

    I get mine tomorrow, moving from an Oppo Find X2 Pro, I'm really interested in the better camera zoom (for wildlife, not random objects/buildings - check out Olle Nilsson hands-on review, some of his shots look great) and battery life (as the Oppo is a bit rubbish) and the 45w charging will be the same as my Tab S8+ inc charger, which will be a slight downgrade (Oppo has 65w) but I think it should be ok. Obviously, everything else will be an upgrade, but it had to be done as my Oppo is slowly dying.

I just zoomed max photos and it is really better. See no point to upgrade, except for the battery life - mine lives for maybe 8-10 hours on busy day, comparing to 12-13 hours when it was new even though dark mode is on.

    The fact that this year's Galaxy has a Snapdragon in the UK, has stronger glass, much faster charging than the iPhone, updated android auto, 4 year minimum software support (has always been a bugbear on android, with slow or non existent updates after a year or two) and at your home repairs from a Samsung technician, I'm sold. After the recent bulls*** of sending my 13 Pro Max to apple for repair, which they then lost and made me wait 90 days before supplying a replacement was the last straw. Can't wait!

    Still rocking my note 20 ultra. I'm from the u.k and I wasn't going to settle for exynos and had an imported qualcom from Hong Kong. Its still in pristine condition although I had to buy a new s pen as the nib broke. Might look at changing next year. Be interesting to see what Sammy sung put out there then...
