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 mainly because while the phone is marked as having a very good selfie score, what is considered "very good" may not meet everyone's expectations for capturing high-quality selfies. Additionally, other factors like resolution, software experience, dynamic range, low light performance, and camera versatility, although not poorly rated, may not combine to meet the demanding standards required for excellent photo quality in varying conditions.
Overall Camera:
4.5
The Samsung Galaxy S24+ has suboptimal cameras due to its very good but not the best possible selfie camera quality, which is deemed very important, and the lack of excellence across multiple areas like photo resolution, dynamic range, low light performance, and camera versatility, which are all important for overall camera performance.
Battery Life:
4.5
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Videos:
4.4
The Samsung Galaxy S24+ produces poor videos due to inadequate video stabilization and poor low-light performance, leading to shaky footage and poor quality in dim conditions. Additionally, despite having a good resolution and framerate, the video software experience is not optimal, which can result in a less user-friendly recording experience.
