Samsung introduced its new smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event held on the evening of February 1. These devices, each of which are flagships, compete not only with Android but also with iPhone models on the iOS side. We also share our Galaxy S23 vs iPhone 14 comparison with you.
Galaxy S23 vs iPhone 14: Features and price!
We start our Galaxy S23 vs iPhone 14 comparison first with the design. Both devices continue the design of their predecessors with minor changes. However, since Samsung uses hole screen technology instead of notch, it is one step ahead in the screen-to-body ratio.
Also, this model, unlike its predecessor, has Gorilla Glass Victus 2. Of course, Apple also says that it uses the most durable glass with Ceramic Shield protection. On the back, there is no camera design difference that will affect the score. In conclusion, since the beauty of designs is relative, we left the decision to you in this part of the comparison.
If we look at the screens of the devices; Galaxy S23 is 6.1 inches in size, uses Dynamic AMOLED 2X technology. This 425 PPI panel has 1080×2340 resolution, 1,750 nits brightness, HDR10 support and a refresh rate ranging from 48-120 Hz.
The screen size of the iPhone 14 is 6.1 inches. However, different technologies are used on the panel side. The device features a 460 PPI Super Retina XDR 60 Hz OLED panel with a resolution of 1170×2532. Let’s also mention that it has 1200 nits brightness and HDR 10 support.
Although both devices have advantages in screen comparison, we can say that the Galaxy S23 is one step ahead due to its better screen-to-body ratio, variable refresh rate that can go up to 120 Hz, and 45 percent higher brightness.
Let’s move on to the performance comparison. The Samsung Galaxy S23 uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which Qualcomm has made special developments for the Galaxy series. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, has a slightly improved version of the A15 Bionic processor, which Apple first used in the iPhone 13 series, on the GPU side.
In addition, let’s say that the Galaxy S23 comes with 8 GB of RAM, and the iPhone 14 comes with 6 GB of RAM. On paper, although Samsung’s hardware is more up-to-date, we can say that Apple is the winner in this comparison due to performance and application optimization. Of course, unless you’re going to push the limits of these devices with hours of video editing or 3D animation-like processes, both will meet your expectations for many years to come.
Let’s take a closer look at the cameras, which are the most important hardware that many people pay attention to when buying a smartphone. Samsung Galaxy S23 has 50 Megapixel main, 12 Megapixel ultra wide and 10 Megapixel telephoto lenses.
The iPhone 14 has a 12 Megapixel main and 12 Megapixel ultra wide angle camera. In addition, both devices have a 12 Megapixel front camera. On paper, we can say that Samsung is ahead due to its 3rd camera that can zoom, 8K 30 FPS video support and high resolution main camera.
But in daily use, the difference will not be so clear. In fact, we see many results where the iPhone 14 is good, both on the video and photo side, according to the scene where the shot is taken. But we can clearly say that Samsung offers more for the given price.
When we look at the battery, charging and other connection features, let’s say that there is no substance that will affect the result alone. For example, the Galaxy S23 supports Wi-Fi 6, while the iPhone 14 supports Wi-Fi 6E, which is better. In contrast, the iPhone 14 offers 20W fast charging, while the Galaxy S23 offers 25W fast charging. That is, there are advantages and disadvantages with slight differences compared to each other.
Finally, let’s come to the price comparison. Both devices have a US starting price of $799. This corresponds to 29 thousand 528 TL including taxes in Turkey. However, Apple sells the iPhone 14 for 32 thousand 999 TL, since the devices first came out by calculating the exchange rate and made a raise last month.
On the other hand, Samsung, by making special pricing for Turkey, offered $ 799 Galaxy S23 for sale at $ 677, ie 24 thousand 999 TL. For this reason, there is a price difference of 8 thousand TL in Turkey between these two devices, which are sold at the same price in the global market. So the winner of the comparison is the Galaxy S23.
Note: The possible prices and the second hand market where the devices will be sold in the coming years have not been taken into account.
