Choosing between the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Galaxy S23+ comes with several considerations. If camera quality is paramount, the S22 Ultra's overall camera quality is a bit better, with higher resolution on the main and telephoto cameras, and it even includes a periscope camera for long-range zoom. But if battery life ranks higher on your list, the S23+ offers slightly longer usage time. The S23+ supports higher brightness in high brightness mode, which is beneficial for viewing in sunlight. Both have large screens, but the S22 Ultra's is slightly larger and has a curved edge, which could provide a more immersive experience. The S23+ comes with more built-in storage. Both phones lack a headphone jack and feature wireless and reverse wireless charging capabilities. Each runs on Android, so the operating system won't be a deciding factor. The S22 Ultra is generally pricier, so if cost savings are important and you can compromise slightly on camera features, the S23+ might be the right choice. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | February 2023
"The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a bit of a “greatest hits” compilation of Samsung’s best ideas from former devices. Moreover, it packs much of the same productivity-enabling software as previous Note devices coupled with the power of the S Pen while keeping the total package reasonable in terms of cost. The phone has more features, more cameras, and more software to put to use than many competing phones. It’s a hardcore device that nearly has it all."

TechRadar

Axel Metz | March 2023
"Despite not boasting the same camera credentials as its pricier sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus will remain a top-tier handset for several years thanks to its industry-leading processor and magnificent display. It may prove an attractive proposition for Galaxy newcomers in the market for a big-screen all-rounder."
