In our Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra review we loved its bright, vivid display and game-changing Qualcomm 8 Gen 2 processor. The phone's advanced camera and seamless integration with other mobile Samsung devices impressed us. We loved the Galaxy S23 Ultra so much that we gave it an overall rating of 4 out of 5-stars.

During real-world testing we opened 40 Chrome tabs with a YouTube video playing in the background. We then jumped around between apps and the Galaxy S23 Ultra didn't so much as stutter. In our lab, it delivered big scores on our benchmarks, notching 14,611 with 3DMark Wild Life Unlimited. It beat the breaks off its flagship competitors — Apple's iPhone 14 Pro Max (8,652, 5-core Apple GPU) and Google's Pixel 7 Pro (6,725, Mali-G710 MP7 GPU).

Made from recycled aluminum, glass, and plastic, the Galaxy S23 Ultra feels substantial and premium. At 8.3 ounces and measuring 6.4 x 3.1 x 0.35 inches, it's identical in mass to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. By comparison, it's slightly larger, yet lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max (8.5 ounces, 6.3 x 3.1 x 0.31 inches).

In terms of Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is at the top of the totem pole. It's a wise choice if you're looking for a powerful big screen phone that includes its own stylus.
