Should you buy the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23+?

The Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ are the company’s current flagships in the S-lineup. The price cut comes at a time when the Galaxy S24 series is gearing up to debut in a few days.

The phones are very well equipped to last a year or two and the company is also offering enough software support for customers to consider them even today. Among the vanilla and the Plus versions, we suggest you go with the latter considering you have the budget. The advantages here are a bigger capacity battery and a large display.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC is powerful enough to run everything you throw at it. Even today we see premium phones gearing up with the same chipset. Samsung optics are also quite good, especially in good lighting conditions. The low-light mode is also quite good, now at the discounted price.

It is a given that the Samsung Galaxy S24 series will be a significant upgrade comparatively but the price difference between the two generations will be quite high for a regular customer. So if you are looking for a good overall flagship, the Galaxy S23+ is a worthy option but if budget is a constraint, the standard Galaxy S23 is also good for the price.
