Can we please have the old battery test back?
Nice way of using the good fame of the S23 Ultra to sell a much worse phone.
Great phone for the price. There is no other phone on the market that is as good as this at ths price on the market right now.
The battery life is disappointing, as well as the price.
I can't tell how different its battery performance is compared to the Exynos S22 series that GSMArena reviewed before since the latter is not yet available in the new Active Use Score database. Still, it's surprising that this Snapdragon S23 FE scored less web browsing and video playback duration than the Exynos S22+ despite both phones having the same 4500mAh battery.
What surprised me, though, is the GPU benchmark performance. I'd thought the Exynos 2200's AMD GPU would beat the Snapdragon in GFXBench and 3DMark tests, but it didn't. It makes me wonder what goes wrong with it.
Test the Exynos version......
Twice in this article they call this thing compact; it's nearly 77mm wide and heavy to boot, not sure where the compact description comes from. It's also a bad deal when there's a bunch of downgrades since the S21FE and the rest of the S23 series has come down a little in price.
reminds me of my old Sony Xperia Z2 with the same purple back
SliMShadY112, 15 Nov 2023That purple color is hideous. So is the orange. But that's just my opinion.These type of colors usually look great in person. Picture cant represent them.
you can buy a used s23 for the same price, bad deal!
Embarrassing battery life compared to a smaller S23 with smaller battery. Worse, many tech youtubers are actually praising this, clearly they don't know much about tech.
The only saving grace is Samsung is heavily promoting it with extra discounts with trade-ins etc.
Skip this one folks. Just get the regular S23 or S23+.
"The 32MP selfie camera remains the same as on the S21 FE and S20 FE" : wrong, it is 10MP now.
"Even better, it's smaller than the average phone, so some users would definitely find it a good offer just for its compact size" : wrong, it is bigger and heavier than the S23 +
Why test the Snapdragon version when most people can only get the inferior Exynos version ?
Why not saying that the adaptative brightness is of the virtual type, like all the very cheap Samsung phones ?
Those bezels for a 600 dollars phone…
At the moment i have a S21 FE 256 GB, and very happy with it.
This phone costs almost $600 8/128GB in Indonesia and this is also the price of a used iPhone 12 Pro which is not worth buying compared to the S23 FE which is a good thing for this phone.
Since there is no top flagship that will be reviewed by GSMArena later this year, and the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is officially the flagship of the year.
GSM Arena team should get a hold on S23 FE which has Exynos 2200 (4 nm) to compare with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
to each his own i guess
but to me that purple is ugly and gay.
even more hideous than a normal purple.
GSMArena should stop spreading misinformation regarding color modes in Samsung phones. NO, Vivid DOES NOT target DCI-P3, nor is Native restricted to sRGB. In fact, Native is the mode which has content color management for sRGB and DCI-P3.
I don't think the phone not being a flagship is an excuse for those horrific bezels. Heck even the Redmi Note 13 and the Poco F5 have thinner bezels than this.
Xiaomi 13T says hello.
This is just sad compared to S21FE...
