      You should try the Adidas RPT-02 SOL headphones. They are sick and can essentially charge themselves while using them.

      @nachobasket95 I agree but this video is like a comprehensive quick start guide that most reviewers aren't doing. A lot of tech Clip-Sharers just open the phone, turn it on, and then only talk about specs. This guy is actually telling us how to get started with the phone hands on

    As an iPhone user, I usually wait several years before upgrading. Last year was a bit different because I liked what Apple was offering with the 14 Pro. I went from a 12 PM to a 14 PM. That’ll probably be the last time I upgrade so soon. Anyways, that green on the S23 looks legit.

      @Bubu's Garage Definitely the best way to go and I can't wait for it to arrive! I went with the Watch 5 because it was no money extra and I'm giving it to my wife anyway. She's not big on tech so she doesn't care. Still, the pro is certainly a better grab.

    Man, it's hard to believe the first Floss video I ever watched was his Galaxy S3 real review back in 2012. It was such a funny and informative video that I subbed right then and there. 11 years and countless Galaxies later and I'm still rockin' with his channel and haven't missed a single upload. Salute.

      @Flossy Carter Hey Floss why don't you use your influence and get Samsung and Google to team up and bring back that Samsung Galaxy Ultra Google Edition phone for the people who want the Samsung hardware but with Google running the software and no Samsung bloat hahaha! Can you make that happen bro?

    Gotta love the small details they added. The sides are slightly flatter so it's easier to hold them prev gen and the pen is black but the ends match the colour of the phone colour you choose. Cream colour being gold, however. 😍 Highly contemplating getting this as it would be a massive upgrade for me, coming from using the last "note" line, note 10 plus.

    • Joyceee
      Joyceee Month ago +1

      @planetphatness that's great to know! I've just convinced myself I'll wait till S24 instead. Give this phone one more year before I retire it and work out some of the minor kinks in the S23.

    • planetphatness

    Lynx of Hyrule Month ago +6

    In a way I'm glad it's s similar because I love my S22 Ultra and I don't have any FOMO not upgrading, but at the same time I kind of miss the days when new phone announcements were really exciting. Like if your friend got the new model you would wanna spend some time checking it out, seeing all the new features. Now it's like, I probably wouldn't even ask them to let me hold it lol. My gf got an iphone 14 pro and I felt like I got the gist of everything that separates it from every iphone since the iphone 11 in less than a minute.

    I get the approach they're taking with this phone but they really could've done more when it comes to battery capacity, charging speed and adding more features. Cheaper phones are more competitive than ever.

  • cjgt77
    cjgt77 Month ago

    You know us too well 😄 I was rocking my S10 and swore up and down I would use it until the wheels came off, because the phone was still doing it's job well, but the overall goodness of Galactus 2.0 and the camera changed my mind, lol. Plus, there're some really good deals going on. I was able to get $500 off without a trade in from my carrier.
    Because it's still Samsung, it's like using my S10, but everything is just plain better. Even the little stuff like NFC at the store. My S10 would struggle at some spots, but the Ultra handles everything like a champ. Love it!

    I have an s22 ultra and honestly have no intention of upgrading this year, but aside from the cameras the storage was the only thing I was wondering about as far as speeds, ufs 3.x vs ufs 4.0. Supposedly double the speed but guess I'll wait for the review to hear your thoughts.

    • Vic Z
      Vic Z Month ago +1

  • Shaquille Jackson

    The snapdragon 8 gen2 made for galaxy is an overclocked version exclusive to Galaxy so right now it's pretty much the best performing Android flagship and it's really efficient just 10 minutes short of the iPhone on battery test in QuadHD mode which is insane considering the difference last gen

    Love all your vids! I pre-ordered this and am patiently waiting for these to ship. Looking forward to your Snyder's cut review on it. Quick question: I have a fast charging block from my S10, should I order a new block to be more fast and efficient? If so what watt/ brand do you recommend?

  • Willem Smith

    I just received my S23 Ultra today (2/15), and I'm like a kid in a candy store! The last phone I had was the S8 plus! It lasted for a few years. Then I went to the S10 plus, and now this model!
    I'm definitely loving it so far, Bixby and the S pen, are great features!
    I'm not using it exclusively yet until my phone case comes in. Not sure why a phone with this price point doesn't come with a charger, and phone case as they did once upon a time.
    I'll definitely be keeping this phone for a few years as always! No complaints at all!

    • Michael Van Horn

    I have the s21 ultra and tested my camera with the zflip 4 and s23 ultra. Imo, the front lense on the s21 is far more detailed and crisp. Not a huge difference on the back lenses. The zflip was slightly more blurred around the 10x zooming range. I may just keep my s21 ultra 1 more year. 🤷🏾‍♀️

  • Corey Young
    Corey Young Month ago +46

    Awesome quick unboxing floss. I did order my s23 ultra. I wasn’t as happy with the trade in value and pre order goodies this year but I can’t complain too much because I got my s22 ultra 512 gb for 300 a bunch of others goodies with it. This year I paid 647 for the s23 ultra with the “free storage “ upgrade to the 512gb. I already ordered the Samsung leather case, spigen zero one edition case and , black esr kickstand case, esr lens protector and pack of two white stone dome tempered glass. I ordered the same cases for my iPhone 14pm as well. But it’s that time of year to be a Samsung knight again and put my apple sheep back to sleep.

    This phone is awesome. I would have been getting it, but I decided to opt for the Google Pixel 7 Pro 512G late last year and love it. For certain reasons, have both that, and my S21 Ultra as my EDC to multitask certain things. The NiteIze belt clip holders I have been using for years makes it easy.
    I still like my S21 Ultra, and it's holding up fine. I like the camera lens aesthetics better that the S22/S23 Ultra but they are nice and have a cleaner look.
    The S23 Ultra would have been fine if I didn't get my Pixel 7 Pro, but I don't really need all those things, and probably saved several hundred dollars over getting a 513G/1T one. I still am totally satisfied with my S21 Ultra. I still have lots of the basic features, just not souped up as much. The Pixel 7 Pro works for me with my S21 Ultra.
    Great phone. Maybe I will get next year's model and put my S21 Ultra as a backup then.
    Great unboxing, and preview. This is the phone to get if you want the best, mainstream Android with all the support and available cases and such.

    • jjacob25101
      jjacob25101 Month ago +1

      @mac joseph It's great, but many differences, which is good. You just gotta learn the UI and settings to tweak it how you like. The S21 Ultra is a great phone, especially with the 16G RAM on the 512G version, but I think my Google Pixel Pro and the S23 Ultra 512G/1T both have 12G RAM and I think maybe are more efficient like the iPhone 13/14 Pro Max.
      Glossy gives great real world practical insights and perspectives compared to most others that just ramble off specs and opinions. He takes you through regular daily activities and actual use scenarios, like the family oriented Instagram examples...
      They are both great, but it's nice to have both...

    This might be the most iterative update Samsung has made. Obviously the design team is happy with the design of the S22 series and it shows here, I have no complaints with the design. Next year they need to go ahead and flatten the display fully, no more curved screens please Samsung.

      @mollerbt 100% great features that i agree with coming from a note 9 to an iphone 14 pro and i do miss youtube vanced but my question was what did the s23 bring to justify it costing as much as a 14 pro? compared to a few years ago when top model androids barely scratched that mark, its just ridiculous.

      @James Buccola name one actually useful feature with a real world application that was added. not some bullshit like "oh the camera has a special stabilization mode", a feature that a normal human being will use in their day to day

    I'm thinking about upgrading from note 20 ultra. It's been a great phone but my battery has definitely degraded. Att has a pretty decent trade in offer. It's tempting. Don't need it but I want it.

    Flossy you are awesome, even if I don't understand, yet, all this tech info you are teaching us! I love your giggles while explaining and then my tears when I pick up my terrible Moto TMobile phone. I have only had it one year and I can't wait to take it back but 1200.00 is out of my range and don't know if anything is better. Thanks so much.

    Yoo Floss. Quick Q. Would you upgrade from $22 Ultra to $23? I've been rocking my $22 Ultra soonest they came out. It's not about JJJ's coz. I can buy a new one. Is it worth it, or should we wait for $24 or even $25? What's your opinion? Looking forward to your yELLO. ✌️

    Here's the problem I have with it. The trade-in values at Samsung suck this year. According to the pre-order page, they would only give me $500 for my S22 Ultra 256GB. On Swappa, they're selling similar devices for $750. If that isn't a rip-off, I don't know what is, and for a very minimal upgrade, it makes this deal more like a downgrade. I ain't buying.

      @Marques Corbitt Total rip-off. I don't think they care about current consumers looking to upgrade, but rather people coming from other brands that don't trade in. Another theory I heard was that Samsung was trying to steer business to the carriers. Either way, it sucks.

    So glad I waited to get this instead of the s22 Ultra (currently have the s21 Ultra. As important as specs are, I always need a physical change-up when upgrading to fully feel like I'm getting a "new experience". Also, that green color is FUEGO 🔥. This is coming from someone who lives and breathes all black everything!
    Watching Floss' vids on phones just hits different. I'm at peace when I see faux wood table and white shoes walking around. It just feels more "real". No fancy effects, just Floss doing his thing 🙌🏾. Been watching for years.

    Android/Samsung phones are kind of an odd thing for me. I used to me an Android guy, and I loved using widgets and having so many options for customization. I really appreciate the way having so many different products competing for the Android market helps to drive features and innovation. Apple doesn’t have that same market pressure, so they’re not as pressed to bring new features to their phones.
    It really kind of goes against what I would expect my instincts to be, but despite Android, and Samsung in particular having lots of interesting phones I think I would enjoy playing with, I am more than content with my iPhone. I do have my hands on Android phones pretty often in the course of my work, but they kind of irritate me in use for the most part. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    There are differences but they are subtle. Camera in low light takes slightly clearer pictures in s23 ultra but rest is pretty much the same. The new chip makes the s23!ultra about 10% faster than s22 ultra. Otherwise it’s the same device

    Hey Floss long time fan you and Shoes are the best anyway Samsung is giving loyal customers the business with the unlocked trade in deal i moved up to the Big Boy phones thanks to you after watching your review on the Galaxy s20 ultra i traded up for the Ultra 21 and the ultra 22 and had planned on doing the same for the 23 but the trade in makes it not worth it to me i guess i will wait to see what happens to see if the deal gets better if not Galaxy S22 is where i will stay.

    I really like the color of this galaxy 23 ultra.

The perfect phone for me would be the ios operating system with a galaxy shell

      It's a big jump in CPU/GPU performance and battery life. Most people don't do enough with their phones to care about those improvements. Don't need performance if all you do is watch videos. If you do more with your phone, it is a huge jump though.

      @Manchurian Candidate I have 2 cats, they're 12 and 7 years old; had 3 but I sadly lost my 13y girl to cancer last September.
      I personally really loved how he wasn't overly proffessional and more casual.
      Many people have pets and all the home office news stories during corona peak times where the hosts seemed embarrassed their pet made a sound or walked around were just so dumb. Everything doesn't need to be overly proffessional, it's rather nice to have some normalcy without trying to be perfect.
      I just really liked his cat roaming around and found it very wholesome.

    Flossy or anyone, let me ask someone. If you're coming from the s20 ultra with the 100x Zoom, would this be worth the upgrade? I'm not gonna lie. This is the first time I'm feeling iffy about and upgrade but I ordered this simply because that let me trade my galaxy note 3 (yes I said note 3) for a $1000 credit towards this new 23 ultra so I call myself getting this while the deal was good but should would this even be a upgrade coming from the s20 really?
