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.
Overall Camera:
4.9
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra's camera is considered to have poor selfie quality, despite being rated as a very important feature. Other aspects such as photo resolution, software experience, dynamic range, and low light performance are rated good to excellent, but the selfie score significantly lowers the overall perception..
Battery Life:
4.9
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Photos:
4.9
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra takes poor photos largely because of its subpar selfie quality, which is considered very important. Additionally, while other aspects like resolution and dynamic range are commendable, the software experience for the camera does not meet expectations, further impacting the overall photo quality.
Videos:
4.5
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra takes poor videos because the software experience for video is rated as very good, which may not meet the expectations for an Ultra model, and particularly struggles with low light performance which is also rated as very good but implies there is room for improvement in this area. Additionally, despite having excellent stabilization and dynamic range, the noted shortcomings in software experience and low light performance can significantly impact the overall video quality.
