If camera quality is a high priority for you, the Samsung Galaxy S23 offers better performance for both still photo and video recording, but if longer battery life is more important, then the Asus Zenfone 10 will serve you better in that aspect. The Zenfone 10 also features a higher refresh rate screen, which can provide a smoother visual experience, especially when gaming or scrolling through content. In terms of screen size, the Galaxy S23 sports a slightly larger display which might be preferable if you enjoy a bigger screen. Both phones have the same amount of storage and RAM, have plastic backs, and offer high-end processors suitable for gaming and multitasking, so the choice may come down to whether you value a better camera and larger screen over battery life and a higher refresh rate display. Both use Android operating systems, so the software experience will be similar, and both support 5G for fast mobile internet access. Give Feedback

Tom's Guide

Richard Priday | August 2023
"It's the best small phone for fans of compact handsets, but the Asus Zenfone 10 could pull users away from Samsung and Google flagships with top-quality performance and battery life. If you can forgive its more limited photography options and the shorter-than-average software support window, the Zenfone 10 is a top choice."

The Verge

Allison Johnson | February 2023
"The 6.1-inch S23 is the best reasonably sized Android phone on the market in the US, partly because almost every other Android phone sold here is gigantic. But it’s also a really good device, with a battery that gets through a full day more comfortably than its predecessor. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset responsible for some of that battery performance improvement is slightly different — and slightly faster — than the 8 Gen 2 in other Android flagships."

About ASUS

Asus is a well-known player in the mobile world, and in the past few years it has been known for covering specific niches in the smartphone market. Their Zenfone line of devices appeal to small phone enthusiasts, by providing very well-rounded and capable phones at a package that is not too large to operate with one hand – something hard to find in modern Android smartphones. Conversely, their ROG line of devices cater to mobile gamers, by providing a slew of hardware and software features, specifically tailored to enhance the mobile gaming experience. Additionally, Asus is one of the only manufacturers left that continues to include headphone jacks in their lineup of phones, a feature that has become exceedingly rare in today's market.

About Samsung

Samsung is one of the most recognizable names in the smartphone industry, standing as the undisputed best-selling brand of Android smartphones in the United States for many years now. Samsung is known for offering a variety of smartphones in all available price points, as well as for implementing cutting-edge technology and innovative features in their flagship devices, ones that often shape the market going forward. The company offers its own unique spin on Android, called One UI, which focuses on offering a multitude of features and is heavily customizable, according to user preference.
