My First Day With the Galaxy S23 Ultra
It’s finally here. The long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is finally on sale, and I was lucky enough to snag one on the first day. Here are my thoughts on Samsung’s latest flagship phone.
The first thing that struck me about the S23 Ultra was its massive 6.9-inch display. It’s absolutely stunning, and the curved edges make it even more eye-catching. The Quad HD+ resolution is extremely sharp, and the 120Hz refresh rate is buttery smooth. I didn’t think I would need a phone with such a large display, but after using it for a day, I can’t imagine going back to a smaller phone.
The second thing that impressed me was the camera. The S23 Ultra has four rear cameras: a 108MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 10MP telephoto camera, and a time-of-flight camera. The main camera is absolutely incredible. The photos I took were sharp, detailed, and vibrant. The low-light performance was very good, and the Night mode did an excellent job of brightening up dark photos. The telephoto camera is also very good, and it allowed me to zoom in without losing any quality. The Ultra-wide camera is a nice addition, but I didn’t find myself using it as much as the other two.
The third thing that I liked about the S23 Ultra was the overall design. The phone is very sleek and stylish, and it feels great in the hand. The aluminum frame and glass back make the phone feel premium, and the fingerprint sensor is in the perfect spot. The only downside is that the camera bump is quite large, which makes the phone wobble when you set it down on a flat surface.
The fourth and final thing that I want to mention is the battery life. The S23 Ultra has a massive 5,000mAh battery, and it easily lasts all day. I was able to get over 6 hours of screen on time, which is impressive. The fast charging is also very good, and you can get a full charge in just over an hour.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. It’s a great phone with a lot to offer. If you’re in the market for a new phone, I highly recommend you check it out.
