Between the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is all about power, and the Galaxy S23, the flagship model, Samsung offers the S23 Plus, which is distinguished essentially by its size, while retaining the attractive layout of its original model.
It's hard to tell the difference between this model and the classic S23, except for the clearly more generous dimensions and larger screen, for a format that's hard to overlook, without excessively increasing the weight, which remains under 200 grams. Solid and well protected by its Gorilla Glass, the Galaxy S23 Plus is also waterproof, as proven by its IP68 certification. Connectivity is of course extremely comprehensive, even if we have to do without a micro-SD card slot. As with the S23, the integration of the photo sensors is elegant and discreet.
The screen of this Galaxy S23+ is very generous in its dimensions (6.6 inches diagonal), but the qualities that Samsung gives to each of its smartphone screens are once again evident. The definition of 2340 pixels by 1080 is quite sufficient to offer a fine display, but it's above all its ability to go up to 120 Hz in frequency that makes this panel so appealing. There's nothing to complain about in terms of brightness, which prevents excessive reflections, or contrast, which is right up there with what's available on top-of-the-range devices. Color fidelity requires a little detour into the settings, with a natural mode that lives up to its promise.
In terms of performance, the chip common to the entire S23 range once again hits the mark, offering perfect fluidity in all circumstances. Even the gaming experience proves to be extremely pleasurable, allowing you to enjoy the game in the best possible conditions.
With the same three-lens configuration as the Galaxy S23, this S23+ produces exactly the same results. The main sensor (with its fifty million pixels, but combined to produce images with 12.5 megapixels) displays a strong tendency to overexpose photos with (overly) vivid colors, which may be pleasing but is nonetheless a little aggressive. Rendering is nonetheless acceptable and has its share of detail, and when light conditions deteriorate, rendering remains more than correct. In 50-megapixel mode, quality improves, but the weight of the images is significant. This over-exposure, largely due to Samsung's software processing, also takes its toll on the ultra-wide-angle module, but the result is still pleasing, and pleasantly, darkness doesn't affect quality too much. With the telephoto lens, there's still the same problem of overexposure, but it's less annoying. On the other hand, there's nothing to complain about with the portrait mode, which is efficient and precise, and the front-facing sensor produces excellent selfies. Video capture benefits from a wide range of options, for the most demanding budding filmmakers.
The Galaxy S23+'s battery proves superior to that of the S22+, and now boasts good autonomy, allowing it to exceed one day without fear. The only regrettable point is that the ultra-fast charging offered by the competition is not possible here, and topping up the battery takes some time.
