Galaxy S23 vs Galaxy S22: three major differences
At first glance, there are few changes between the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S22. However, those who are present are far from trivial.
The first element that differs between the two models concerns the design. somewhat is the design of the device. And more precisely the photo block on the back. The latter disappears to make way for a discreet insertion of the photo sensors in the chassis of the Galaxy S23. For the rest, the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S22 are similar in every way.
Performance and autonomy
There, we are entitled to change. The Samsung Galaxy S23 is equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip instead of the Exynos 2200 of the Galaxy S22. This is a real advantage over the S22. The new Qualcomm chip is up to 45% faster than the Exynos 2200. This is the major change of this new S series: more power, more stability and better energy efficiency.
The Galaxy S23 has a bigger battery than the Galaxy S22. We go from 3700 mAh to 3900 mAh, an improvement of around 5%. And knowing that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is less power-hungry, the S23 should offer better battery life than the Galaxy S22.
No change in the configuration of the photo sensors at the back. She is therefore the same as that of the Galaxy S22. Up front, however, the Galaxy S23 has a 12 MP sensor against 10 MP for the Galaxy S22.
A rising price
Samsung has raised prices by €100 this year. We therefore go from 859€ to 959€ for the Galaxy S23. But if you pre-order the Galaxy S23 until February 16, you get a €60 reduction on the 256 GB version of the smartphone. It will indeed be at the price of the 128 GB version, i.e. 959€ instead of 1019€.
