With the Galaxy S23, Samsung has set an exclamation mark. With a price of around 825 euros, the great smartphone is anything but a bargain. On the other hand, buyers get a better deal from a competitor that costs almost 300 euros less. My personal price-performance tip.
A commentary by Kaan Gürayer
Anyone who gets the top mark of 8.4 out of 10 points in the tough GIGA test can pat themselves on the back. That’s exactly what the Galaxy S23 did recently. Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone has hardly any weaknesses worth mentioning and is particularly impressive with its excellent display, outstanding triple camera, fast performance and long update guarantee.
Only one hair clouds the Galaxy S23 soup: the price.
Pixel 7 is the cheaper alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S23
Samsung has set the RRP at 949 euros, after a few weeks in stores the Galaxy S23 is already a bit cheaper – for example for around 825 euros (view at Notebooksbilliger.de). Especially in these expensive times with skyrocketing electricity and gas prices and XXL inflation, this is no small toad that buyers have to swallow – especially since there is a more than solid alternative: the Pixel 7.
Now one should have no illusions: That Galaxy S23 is the better smartphone in pretty much every way. It has the nicer display, the more powerful processor, loads faster, is more compact and lighter, offers a triple camera with a telephoto lens, is more durable, receives updates longer and much more.
If you don’t have to look at the money, you should grab the Galaxy S23. There is currently hardly an Android smartphone that offers a better overall package.
Everything you need to know about the Galaxy S23:
Are the advantages of the Galaxy S23 really worth almost 300 euros?
Everyone else, on the other hand, should ask themselves the following question: Are the advantages of the Galaxy S23 really the same? Worth the extra charge of almost 300 euros? Because the Pixel 7 is currently available as part of the spring offers at Amazon for only 564.90 euros. You also get the Pixel Buds headphones for free, making the deal even more attractive.
My very personal Price-performance tip is the Pixel 7.
