If you prioritize a better camera system and you prefer iOS, the Apple iPhone 11 would be a strong choice as it offers good photo and video quality. However, if longer battery life and a more recent Android experience are more important to you, along with a larger screen size, then the Samsung Galaxy A23 could better meet your needs. Keep in mind the iPhone 11 has a glass backing which might feel more premium than the plastic back of the A23, but that could make the iPhone more fragile. The iPhone 11 also provides wireless charging which the A23 lacks, but the A23 has a higher screen refresh rate which can make scrolling and animations smoother. Give Feedback

Tom's Guide

Mark Spoonauer | September 2021
"The iPhone 11 delivers superb cameras, fast performance and excellent battery life, making it the iPhone to buy for many people. The cameras are very good, thanks to an ultra-wide lens and a Night mode for better low-light performance. This device also has IP68-rated water resistance, which means that it can withstand 2 meters of water for 30 minutes, and is one of the best waterproof phones out there."

Android Police

Connor Nolan | October 2022
"With four years of security updates, a Snapdragon 695, and far and away the best display at this price point, the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G is one of the best values in the budget category you're likely to see for quite a while. Buy it if you want a super long support life for your budget phone."
