FAQ

There are three devices to check out in this latest range - a standard Galaxy S23, a slightly larger plus-sized Galaxy S23 Plus model, and the flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra. Pricing-wise, the standard device starts at a price of $799 / £769, the middle Plus model begins at $999 / £1,049, and the Ultra starts at a hefty $1,199 / £1,249.

While these starting prices may seem like a big ask upfront, it's worth noting these are top-of-the-line devices with flagship features and tons of power under the hood (thanks to the latest Snapdragon chips, no less). Also, there are some absolutely fantastic Galaxy S23 deals to check out at launch to really help that hefty asking price down to size. 

For example, those in the US can not only get a massive trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 at multiple carriers but a number of nice freebies - including store credit, smartwatches, and tablets. Over in the UK, there are number of really competitive tariffs on offer at most of the big networks, the best of which we've picked out especially for this page.

If you're looking for a detailed run-down of these devices, as well as our initial thoughts, scroll on down to our FAQ section at the bottom of the page. If you'd like to compare these promotions to the latest on other brands - say Apple devices - then head on over to our main cell phone deals page, where you'll find this week's recommendations.

Verizon's current Galaxy S23 deal is low-key one of the better options right now on the site - especially if you're not looking to go the usual trade-in route. No trades are currently needed to get the device for free alongside an unlimited plan right now - just a new line. Unlike with a similar deal on the Galaxy S24 right now, you can get the Galaxy S23 for free on one of the more basic unlimited plans, so it's a good choice if you're looking to save some cash. You can also throw in a free Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE right now as a bonus gift but note that you will need to pay for an additional tablet cellular line to be eligible to claim it.

Samsung Galaxy S23: what's new?

Galaxy S23 & Galaxy S23 Plus

- New Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip
- Refreshed contour-less design
- 12MP selfie camera

Galaxy S23 Ultra

- 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?

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?
