If you're looking for an affordable phone, the Samsung Galaxy A23 could be a good fit. It offers a large screen size and a high-capacity 5000mAh battery, which should provide long battery life. The phone has a plastic body and a large 6.6-inch LCD screen without a curved edge. It features a quad-camera setup with a main camera that takes decent photos but don't expect high-end camera performance. For those needing extra storage or dual SIM capabilities, it comes with an SD card slot and supports dual SIMs. You'll appreciate the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack, especially if you prefer using wired earphones. Keep in mind, it's a budget device with modest performance and the overall camera quality is not as good as more premium smartphones. Give Feedback

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."
