The Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone range initially consisted of the Ultra, Plus and Standard, after which the Samsung S23 FE was added. FE stands for Fan Edition and is the cheapest model at €200 less than the price of the standard S23. The large (158 x 76.5 x 8.2 mm) and solidly built (aluminum edge and front and back Gorilla Glass 5) S23 FE has excellent build quality and therefore a premium appearance. The large 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen has 2340 x 1080 pixels and an adjustable screen refresh of up to 120 fps. This ensures that the image scrolls smoothly, videos look sleek and there is a clear image with excellent colors and contrast under almost all conditions.

The cheaper processor and 8 GB of RAM can handle virtually all tasks; Furthermore, our model has 128GB of storage memory (there is also a 256GB model). It also has 5G (nano-SIM and eSim), Wi-Fi 6E, NFC, USB-C and good-sounding stereo speakers. The battery capacity of 4500 mAh is good for about 10 hours of continuous use, wireless charging is also possible. The cameras (50MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and 3x 8MP telephoto lens lag slightly behind the Ultra, but provide images with great detail and color and all high-end camera functions are available.

Add to this Android 14 and four years of OS upgrades and 5 years of security updates and you have the better mid-range car with a good price-performance ratio: all components are well balanced and will not disappoint the user.
