If you're bundling this one up with a plan, our pick for overall value is the Unlimited Max + 3 Xtra benefits plan, which is the basic unlimited data option without all the streaming benefits. Those who think they can do without all that data, however, may want to opt for the 100GB + 2 Xtra benefits plan for £27 per month.

Samsung Galaxy S23: what's new?
- New Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip
- Refreshed contour-less design
- 12MP selfie camera
- New Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip
- 12GB of RAM (on 512GB and up)
- 200MP rear camera
- 12MP selfie camera
The latest Galaxy S23 series is here - is it what we were expecting? Well, early leaks suggested that Samsung was sticking with an incremental upgrade this year and focusing on internal components. Generally speaking, that's what we've got with the Galaxy S23 series but there are some really nice improvements to the device overall that should help justify the upgrade.
First up - the overall look and feel of the devices is roughly equivalent to last year's Galaxy S22 series but we've lost the distinctive rear contour on the camera housing. This essentially leaves the Galaxy S23 'bumpless', with a nice new clean aesthetic that's arguably more modern than the previous iteration.
Across all devices, the display tech is the same as last generation's S22 range but all three devices now come with a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip under the hood. This 3.6 GHz monster is industry-leading when it comes to performance and should lend more than enough power for games, apps, and potentially even 8K 30 fps video capture.
Another upgrade shared across all three devices is the 12MP selfie camera, which is a slight upgrade from the 10MP featured on the previous generation of Galaxy devices. Generally speaking, the cameras are the same on the standard Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, which is by no means a bad thing considering the snappers were already pretty damn good.
As expected, most of the lion's share of upgrades are reserved for the Ultra device, which now benefits from not only a cutting-edge chip but a whopping 200MP main camera system on top. Paired with 10x zoom, computational improvements to night photography, and the ability to now shoot 50MP RAW files, the S23 Ultra is a mobile photographer's dream.
Which device should you go for?
The best for most users
The Galaxy S23 is a fantastic choice for the vast majority of users. It's the cheapest device of the three but it doesn't skip out on any of the core features. The chip, camera, and overall design are exactly the same as those featured on the Plus model, just in a smaller 6.1-inch form factor.

Good for streaming
The Galaxy S23 Plus is an upscaled version of the standard Galaxy S23. It's a niche pick and pricier than the standard device, but those who prefer a larger screen for apps and games will definitely want to consider this middle choice.

Best of the best
Best for power users
The flagship device in the range, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to appeal to those who want a cutting-edge phone and are willing to lay down some serious cash. It's the biggest device of the three at 6.8 inches and features a more squared-off phablet-like design plus an improved camera system.
Read our Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra review
For us, the standard Galaxy device has always sat in the sweet spot in regard to value. While it's still a relatively pricey buy, you get a fantastic screen, camera, and internal components that are always up there with the very best on the market. Simply put, you don't lose out on anything major by opting for the standard device as it's packing in the same chip as all the others.
Of course, if you're looking for the very best of the best, then only the Ultra model will suffice. It's where the bulk of the upgrades can be found and it represents the very best that Samsung has to offer. While the processor is essentially the same in this model, extra helpings of RAM, an expanded camera setup, and absolutely humongous screen make it the performance king and a device that will truly make your friends jealous.
The Plus device is more of a niche buy in our opinion since it's essentially an upscaled version of the standard device but it can be a good middle ground if you want that larger display. The question is, is that half-inch of extra real estate worth the fairly significant upcharge - and should you simply opt to spend a little more to get your hands on that Ultra model?
