After a somewhat criticized S22 Ultra, Samsung is back with a bang with the S23 Ultra. It comes to correct the defects of its predecessor and tries to get closer to perfection. If you are interested in this model, know that it is currently going from 1,419 euros to 1,229 euros on Rue du Commerce.
Samsung has accustomed us, with its Galaxy Ultra, to a range of almost impeccable smartphones. However, the one from the year 2022 had some flaws, particularly in terms of performance and autonomy. The South Korean brand listened to our complaints and designed an S23 Ultra that lived up to our expectations. We have also applied the score of 9/10 to our test, which clearly shows that the efforts made by the manufacturer are successful. To take advantage of it, you must pay the price, but today you benefit from a good reduction.
The qualities of the Galaxy S23 Ultra
- The square format of the Note range
- Photographic versatility remains excellent
- A powerful chip: Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
- A muscular autonomy that can last up to 2 days
For its 8 + 256 GB version, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra starts at a price of 1,419 euros, but it is cheaper on the Rue du Commerce site. Thanks to an immediate discount of 40 euros and a voucher purchased on your old smartphone of at least 150 euros (valid until 02/16), the phone costs 1,229 euros.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra at the best price?
A design and a sublime screen
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is strictly the same as its predecessor with quality materials. It offers a rather solid rectangular format, but whose edges have been flattened to guarantee a better grip. Perfect for using a stylus that requires a solid support to write with ease.
Its gigantic 6.8-inch diagonal reveals a magnificent Dynamic Amoled touch screen. It offers adaptive refresh of up to 120 Hz and QHD resolution. Our measurements found a maximum brightness of 1609 cd/m2 as well as a Delta E of 4.58. It is almost flawless. It lacks just a bit of precision, but nothing prohibitive.
The best smartphone with a camera.
Already number 1 in our ranking of the best photophones with its S22 Ultra in 2022, Samsung once again managed to be on the podium with its S23 Ultra with a four-lens composition on its back. Versatility is present every year with its X10 and X3 that allow you to have fun and a very effective ultra-wide angle.
The S23 Ultra benefits from photographic improvements, such as the integration of a new 200-megapixel main sensor. It uses pixel binning to merge photo sites and get to 12 megapixels. Whatever the mode requested, the photos taken are of very good quality. Night mode is certainly a bit less fancy, but everything is still of a very high standard.
A much more efficient processor and battery life
After long being confined to its Exynos chips in the European market, Samsung has (finally) decided to switch to a Qualcomm chip in its new Galaxy S23 range. Thus, the Ultra model benefits from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (along with 8 GB of RAM) and is much more satisfying in terms of performance compared to its predecessor. This phone is therefore very powerful, with the possibility of running all the 3D games you want and in the maximum graphics conditions, all without heating. It runs on One UI 5.1 based on Android 13, an interface whose animations have really gotten smoother. It is also compatible with the 5G network.
On the autonomy side, once again, the South Korean firm is making clear progress. The S23 Ultra lasts two full days without blinking, even up to the third day if its use is not very intensive. During our test, we put it through our ViSer protocol to simulate mixed use. The mobile fell to 10% after 15 hours and 14 minutes, a very nice score. On the other hand, it is a pity that the charge allows to recover 100% of the energy in an hour, and that the charger does not come in the box.
