Samsung Galaxy S24+ smartphone review: The big Galaxy S24 inches closer to the S24 Ultra

A plus for identity. This year's Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus gets to benefit from quite a few improvements, leading to it no longer just being a big Galaxy S24. Especially with regard to runtimes, the Plus model continues to show its strengths. In this review, you can read about how well the Galaxy S24+ did in our test.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus smartphone review

According to its tech specs as well as its price, the Galaxy S24+ is situated right between the compact Galaxy S24 and the S-series flagship, the Galaxy S24 Ultra. For an MRSP of US$999.99, buyers of the Plus model will receive 256 GB of internal storage and for a surcharge of US$200, its UFS-4.0 storage device comes with twice the capacity.

Compared to its predecessor, Samsung has improved its high-end smartphone in quite a few areas. Now, the Galaxy S24+ features 12 GB RAM as standard and the Plus model's WQHD+ display inches closer to the S-series Ultra smartphone. The same as on its smaller sister model, this year's Galaxy S24+ doesn't use a Qualcomm chipset but instead, relies on the in-house Exynos 2400

Case - The Galaxy S24 Plus with an IP certification

The Galaxy S24+ is considerably larger than the Galaxy S24.
The Galaxy S24+ is considerably larger than the Galaxy S24.

The IP68-certified high-end Samsung phone's build quality is excellent—there are no gaps or build issues. The used materials feel high-quality and the buttons sit securely within the Armor aluminum frame. The phone's back and front make use of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

Thanks to its slimmer bezels, the 6.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S24+ features very similar external dimensions compared to its predecessor and has grown by only 0.1 inches. This results in a slightly more efficient display-to-surface ratio of 91.6 per cent, giving the device a very modern feel.

Connectivity - The Samsung phone with UWB

The UFS-4.0 storage in our test sample has an available capacity of 463 GB and the internal storage cannot be expanded. The Galaxy S24+ features extensive connectivity options including NFC, USB-OTG, Miracast as well as USB 3.2 (Gen 1) with wired picture output support. In contrast to its smaller sister model, it also includes an ultra-wide-band chip, meaning the Galaxy S24 Plus can be used alongside the Galaxy SmartTag 2, for example, for extremely precise locating. When it comes to Bluetooth, the phone continues to only offer the 5.3 standard, as the installed Exynos 2400 doesn't support the newest version (5.4).

During our copying test using a connected M.2 SSD (Samsung 980 Pro), the device's USB port achieved transfer rates of 190 MB/s, which is considerably below the port's capabilities. The data systems exFAT and NTFS—which is preferred by Microsoft systems—are mastered by the Samsung phone, however, it can only read an NTFS-formatted drive and not edit it.

Software - The Samsung smartphone with long updates

The Galaxy S24+ runs the latest Android 14 and the in-house OneUI user interface (version 6.1), which includes the new Galaxy AI. If you want to find out more about Samsung's smart AI solutions, you can read about them in our review of the Galaxy S24

At the time of testing, the Galaxy S24+'s latest security patch was from February, so very up-to-date. Samsung guarantees updates for seven years and seven major Android generations for its top-of-the-range devices. According to the manufacturer, security patches are to be rolled out monthly, although it is unclear over what period.

Communication and GNSS - The Galaxy S24 Plus with 5G

The Galaxy S24+ supports access to the mobile 5G network as well as a wide range of 4G frequencies. The Samsung phone can access a total of 22 LTE bands, including band 20 and band 28.

Within the home Wi-Fi network, the Galaxy phone offers fast Wi-Fi 6E, but no current Wi-Fi 7. In combination with our reference router Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, this was sufficient for transfer rates of around 1,600 MBit/s on average when sending. However, within the 6-GHz frequency, the Galaxy S24+'s reception data was unexpectedly low in our test.

Telephone features and call quality - The Samsung smartphone with dual-SIM support

Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus review
Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus review

The Galaxy S24+ supports two nanoSIM cards, VoLTE—plus, the phone allows calls via your home WLAN (WiFi calling). In contrast to its predecessor, the Samsung phone only features a dual-eSIM function.

Its call quality is very good. Voices are played back clearly and quiet ambient noises can be filtered out effectively. Using Galaxy AI, the Galaxy S24+ can translate calls in real-time when using the Samsung telephone app—without needing an internet connection.

Cameras - The Galaxy S24 Plus with 50 MPix

The Samsung Galaxy S24+'s 12-MPix lens takes nice selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy S24+'s 12-MPix lens takes nice selfies.

The phone's optically-stabilized 50-MPix main camera uses an ISOCELL GN3, the same as in its predecessor. The 1/1.57-inch camera sensor takes really good pictures during the day as well as at night, although the photos sometimes feature a bit of a soft focus. The Samsung phone also has great color reproduction capabilities. Although green tones are depicted a little too vividly, its color deviations are relatively low. Users who would like to play about with parameters such as aperture, exposure and white balance can also make use of a so-called "Pro Mode" and "Expert RAW", both of which offer extensive features. 

The main camera is supported by a 12-MPix ultra-wide-angle lens which offers a field of view of 120° instead of 85°. In good lighting conditions, its quality is fine but photos taken using this lens show a lot more picture errors and noise compared to the 50-MPix lens. In this aspect, Samsung should really bring some improvements with its next Galaxy-S generation.

We prefer the Galaxy S24+'s zoom capabilities much more. Its tele-lens enables lossless zoom up to 3x with a 10-MPix resolution. The Samsung phone is able to retain quite a few details and good sharpness up to a 5x zoom.

Accessories and warranty - The Samsung phone without a power supply

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus's optional case
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus's optional case

The phone's scope of delivery doesn't include a charger and straight out of the box, the display doesn't have a protective cover installed. The box only includes a USB cable and information leaflets.

In the United States, the Galaxy smartphone is covered by a standard 12-month limited warranty. Optionally, you can take out an insurance package called Care+ which covers the Galaxy S24+ against damage and theft for up to two years.

Input devices & operation - The Galaxy S24 Plus with Face Unlock

Inputs remain accurate right into the corners of the phone's 6.7-inch touchscreen and they are executed quickly. The Galaxy S24+ can be operated very smoothly and its vibration motor releases crisp haptic feedback. 

The Samsung phone uses an ultrasound sensor beneath the OLED panel to authenticate users, which recognizes saved fingerprints quickly and reliably. Biometric security is also provided through a 2D facial unlock function.

Display - The Galaxy smartphone with an extremely bright display

The OLED display uses an RGGB sub-pixel matrix consisting of one red, one blue and two green LEDs.
The OLED display uses an RGGB sub-pixel matrix consisting of one red, one blue and two green LEDs.

The 6.7-inch AMOLED panel features a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The LTPO panel allows for the frequency to be adapted to a minimum of 1 Hz. In our test, however, we only read a minimum of 24 Hz from the system data.

One big difference compared to its predecessor is the screen's pixel density. While the Galaxy S23+ featured a FullHD+ resolution, its successor's screen runs at 1,440p, which is on the same level as a Galaxy S24 Ultra.   

In order to regulate its brightness, the Galaxy smartphone uses OLED-typical PWM at a frequency of 240 to 480 Hz. The amplitude curve was very even across the phone's entire brightness spectrum in our measurement using an oscilloscope.

Its maximum brightness of almost 1,400 cd/m² which we measured is very good, and it also did great for the price class during the realistic APL18 test (Average Picture Level), achieving a maximum brightness of 2,610 cd/m². When playing back a 4K-HDR-pattern video, we even measured 2,793 cd/m².

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 479 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 479 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 479 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17794 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outside, the Samsung phone makes a great impression. In direct sunlight, display content remains totally legible. We also don't have anything negative to say about its viewing-angle stability. The OLED panel's colors remain stable even when viewing the screen from extreme angles.

Performance - The Galaxy S24 Plus with an Eynos SoC

The Galaxy S24+ relies on a very powerful SoC, namely the Exynos 2400—however, it is slightly weaker than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 within the Ultra model. The CPU unit with the fast ARM Cortex X4 in combination with 12 GB RAM ensured good benchmark results. Especially when it came to its Geekbench multi score, the Galaxy S24+ showed improvements compared to its predecessor.

In terms of graphics calculations, which the Xclipse 940 iGPU integrated within the Exynos 2400 handles, the Samsung phone again achieved very good results. Thanks to the display's higher pixel density, its on-screen values were (as expected) lower than those of the Galaxy S23+ or Galaxy S24 with a FullHD+ resolution.

Thanks to its high performance and fast storage, you won't face any noticeable delays in everyday use and the system runs buttery smooth in almost every situation. Similar to the Galaxy S24, however, its read and write rates lie slightly below what we expect of the UFS-4.0 standard.

Games - The Galaxy S24 Plus manages over 100 fps

Let's take a look at whether the Xclipse 940 iGPU is also suitable for HFR gaming with the help of the GameBench application. In games with low system requirements, such as the first-person shooter Dead Trigger 2, an average of over 100 fps is possible using the Galaxy S24+. Modern games, such as PUBG Mobile, can only be played at a high 90 fps using the lowest graphics setting. At the highest detail level (UHD), the Samsung phone runs at 40 fps. Our third game, the demanding Genshin Impact, is displayed at 60 fps on the Galaxy S24+ in the highest graphics setting.

Speakers

The Samsung phone's stereo speakers impressed us with a pleasant sound quality and even trebles. However, the Galaxy S24+'s speakers do not produce much bass. The mids are balanced but could be a little more linear.

If you want to play music externally, you can use the wired USB-C port, or Bluetooth 5.3 is also available. However, the latter uses comparatively few codecs (SBC, AAC, aptX, LDAC and SSC).

Battery life - The Samsung phone with wireless charging

Power consumption

Its power consumption values are unremarkable. As expected, its power consumption under load is significantly higher than that of the Galaxy S23+ in view of the Burnout benchmark.

The phone's 4,900 mAh battery, which has grown in size compared to its predecessor, can be recharged in around 80 minutes at a maximum of 45 watts from zero—assuming a correspondingly powerful energy source. We used a power bank (100 watts, PD 3.0) in our test, as there was no suitable power adapter included in the scope of delivery. The Galaxy S24+ is capable of wireless charging at up to 15 watts, as well as Wireless PowerShare at up to 5 watts.
