Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy M23

81.1% Samsung Galaxy M23 review - Samsung's inexpensive phone gets 5G and 120 Hz | Notebookcheck
Samsung has finally taken the step to 5G with the Galaxy M23, but the AMOLED screen has been dropped. Are the Koreans lagging behind the market or do they once again build a decent and inexpensive mid-range phone? We will find out in the review.
Samsung Galaxy M23 5G Review - AMOLED or 120Hz?
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Samsung Galaxy M23 5G was one of the additions by Samsung to their M-Series. It is packed with a 120Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 750G 5G, and a 5000mAh battery. The question here is do you prefer a 120Hz refresh but an IPS panel? Or would you rather go for a 60Hz refresh rate but get the AMOLED display?

Samsung Galaxy M23 Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The phone holds 5G connectivity, an apt camera, huge battery capacity, decent performance, and doesn’t trouble you in any way. The brand name Samsung can be enough to justify the overall value of the phone. Despite this, the phone specs seem to be underwhelming as per its pricing. You get a TFT LCD display, an 8nm chipset, low 4GB RAM in the base variant. Though there are various good sides of the phone, except 5G support and the Samsung brand there is no reason to buy this smartphone. There are a lot of better options available at this pricing. Even you get a better smartphone from Samsung if you go a little high or low in your budget. Besides this, the phone fulfills your requirements in every way possible. For now, you can check alternatives once such as the Realme 9 smartphone.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 750G 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 570 cores (two fast ARM Cortex-A77 cores at up to 2.2 GHz and six small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz) and a fast X52 5G modem (up to 3700 Mbps download). The SoC is manufactured in the modern 8 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.60":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Samsung: Samsung Group is the largest South Korean conglomerate and was founded in 1938. Samsung Group employed 489,000 people in 2014 and is one of the world's largest companies in terms of revenue and market strength. The name Samsung means "Three Stars" in Korean and represents the three sons of the company's founder. The company was founded in 1938 as a grocery store. With its subsidiary Samsung Electronics, founded in 1969, Samsung took up the production of electrotechnical items, focusing on consumer electronics and household appliances at an early stage. Other branches in which the large corporation is active include mechanical engineering, automobiles (Hyundai), insurance, wholesale, real estate and leisure. Samsung manufactures a wide range of electronic products, including smartphones, televisions, home appliances and semiconductors. The company's Galaxy line of smartphones is one of the most popular in the world. Samsung is also a major player in the semiconductor industry, making memory chips and processors for many other electronics manufacturers.


70.18%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
