Samsung Galaxy F23 5G Review:

In the range of ₹15,000 to ₹20,000 smartphone segment in India has long been dominated by strong options from Chinese brands. Samsung aims to shake up the market with the Galaxy F23 5G. This new model introduces internal upgrades such as a more powerful 5G connectivity, higher resolution display, and new camera setup, although the exterior design remains similar to the Galaxy F22. With fierce competition in this price range, the Samsung Galaxy F23 5G must prove itself as a worthy contender. Also, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of the Samsung Galaxy F23 5G.

Design and Display of Samsung Galaxy F23 5G

The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G features a matte finish on the back, contrasting with a glossy frame on the sides. The all-plastic body is well-built but feels slightly heavy and chunky. Users may take a few days to adjust to its weight. The power button integrates a fingerprint sensor, while the bottom of the phone houses a headphone jack, USB-Type C port, and single speaker. A SIM tray at the top supports two nano-SIMs and a microSD card.

The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G boasts a full-HD+ resolution display with a 120Hz refresh rate, both improvements over the F22. However, the phone now features an LCD panel instead of AMOLED, and the thick bezels and notch give it a dated appearance. The display offers adequate brightness for indoor use and good color reproduction, but it washes out under bright sunlight, making it difficult to see.

Performance and Software

The Galaxy F23 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G, which provides a much-needed performance boost. Unfortunately, the phone lacks stereo speakers and an IP rating. The device runs One UI 4.1 based on Android 12, with a promise of two years of software updates and four years of security updates. The interface is feature-rich but not the snappiest. Samsung offers a 4GB RAM variant, but we recommend the 6GB version for smoother performance. The 4GB model tends to run low on RAM quickly, leading to sluggishness.

Camera quality of Samsung Galaxy F23 5G

The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G supports a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. An 8-megapixel front-facing camera handles selfies. The camera app includes numerous shooting modes and filters. In daylight, the main camera captures landscapes and close-ups with decent detail and color. Low-light performance has improved compared to the F22, but photo quality remains average. The selfie camera performs surprisingly well in daylight.

Battery Life and Charging

The Galaxy F23 5G houses a 5,000mAh battery, which offers up to two days of runtime on a single charge. The phone supports up to 25W fast charging, but a compatible charger must be purchased separately. Using a 65W power adapter with a Type-C output, the Galaxy F23 5G can be charged up to 80% in an hour.

Conclusion of Samsung Galaxy F23 5G Review

The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G excels in battery life and offers upgraded hardware, a large number of 5G bands, and the promise of timely software updates.
