Remember the time when diminished battery=battery swap? iPhone users excuse.
this is an S21 / S23 video but the sponsor cases being highlighted are Pixel phones. hahahahaa
I'm still using my galaxy S10 Plus and it still does all things very well.
Lol I'm still on the S20. Looks the same as the S23, has more features like microSD, and the cameras have diminishing returns at this point. Also I still get monthly software updates and the phone is just as fast as it was 3 years ago.
Sticking to my note 9 for now. Not a fan of screens with notches or cutout for the camera.
Who owns a S23 right now?
Question: What is the real life screen on time with Mobile Internet on when you're not on the home Wifi?
Conditions for me: I don't play games. Mostly Whatsapp, Google maps navigation, Music Streaming over Bluetooth to my cars infortainment system, some online banking, calls, other tools apps.
Thank you for your more than useful review.. I have anan1 Ultra 5g also from Verison and my phone has and continues to work well to the point of not neebeinganw phone, but I have to admit I saw the S23 and kinda wondered. I did not not tillill your review that the back camera area was different the my current 21. Still my 21 is doing what I need it to and it's paid otf I also didn't know about samsung warrieny so that GEM you dropped was very helped making my decision to stay with my current model. Also, like you I was considering a Pixal however most merchants don't accept Google pay or apple pay BUT they WILL accpet SAMSUNG PAY merchants like the US post office also Krispy Kreme doesn't take Apple pay just Google and Samsung and as you might have guess I am a big mobilel pay user, so that also played a deciding factor. But thank you again for you wonderful and VERY HELPFULL review. When it's my Samsung if finally ouf for the out then I will get a new Samsung phone
I have the s21 plus and don't see enough reason to switch to the S23 plus. Plus the screen is smaller, the battery is smaller. still no charger brick but i have the 25 watt fast charger already. No sd card and no 3.5 jack. I'll wait a while and get the s23 ultra when the price is lower. My s21 plus works great and still takes great pictures.
I just sold my new s22 and went back to the s20. Works better with 12 GB of ram.
Meanwhile, I just upgraded to the S21 from the S9, gotta say I love it, especially because I can get it for cheaper and not miss out on much. 😀
switching 21 to 23… overconsumption at its best.
Thanks for the video. I have an S21and I love it. I still don't see this comparison as reason enough to upgrade tho. My battery life has improved contrary to yours. Plus, my phone runs so well and I've never had any issues with it.
What do you think about Xiaomi 12 t pro
Despite being an iPhone user, the S 21 ultra was my favorite, the S 21 ultra is still impressive in my opinion.
I'm watching this on an S20 and had already decided to skip the S23, the camera improvements were not enough of a change to make me upgrade. Maybe the S24!!!
No, the biggest question is whether to switch from S10 to S23 :D, mainly it's the camera and battery and the os version support that is changed; why should I throw 95% used device for a newer model?
My friend just did the exact same thing, she upgraded from the S 21 ultra to the S 23 ultra.
It is always iPhone and Samsung for you guys in the tech world. Why can't you do a video titled. Upgrading from zenfone 7 to zenfone 9 or Xperia 1 mark 2 to Xperia 1 mark 4
I have a Galaxy S21 and I'm going to upgrade to the Pixel 8 😊
i had a samsung a8 for close to 6 years before upgrading, why are ppl throwing away their s21?
