BATTERY: Very Good8.0/10

The Samsung Galaxy S24 offers a balance of features and price in the upper midrange segment, with a glass body and Android operating system. It has a solid battery life and a capable camera system that provides a very good overall experience, with the versatility to shoot in low light and make use of HDR video capabilities. The device boasts a 6.2-inch curved OLED screen with a high refresh rate for smooth visuals and an under-display fingerprint sensor for security. It supports 5G connectivity and wireless charging, but lacks a headphone jack and an SD card slot. The Galaxy S24 strikes a good equilibrium between performance, especially with its latest processor and 8GB of RAM, and price, making it a well-rounded choice for those who prioritize a high-quality display and camera without breaking the bank.

Ratings by Category

Performance:
5.0
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Photos:
4.6
The Samsung Galaxy S24 takes poor photos because the selfie quality is not up to the mark, which is a very important aspect of photo quality. Additionally, even though the software experience for photos is rated as very good, this seems to not be enough to compensate for the shortcomings in selfie performance.
Overall Camera:
4.5
The Samsung Galaxy S24 has a poor camera experience primarily due to its underwhelming selfie capabilities. Despite all other camera aspects being rated favorably, the selfie quality does not match up, which is highly important for users prioritizing front camera performance.
Battery Life:
4.4
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Videos:
4.4
The Samsung Galaxy S24 captures videos with less than optimal quality primarily due to its average video stabilization and low light performance, despite having decent mic quality and video software experience. These factors contribute to videos that may not look as smooth or clear as expected, especially in challenging lighting conditions.
