Coming to the front, there is a 12MP selfie camera. Likewise the Ultra mode, these smartphones can also record 8k videos up to 30fps from the rear camera and up to 4k@60fps from the front camera.
Performance and Memory
Finally, Samsung has gotten rid Exynos chipset from the S23 series. Now, all the devices in the S23 series are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets.
The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus have equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It is also a custom chipset like the S23 Ultra. This chipset features a Cortex-X3 core that can clock up to 3.36Ghz and the regular SD 8 Gen 2 frequency can go up to 3.2Ghz only.
All the other seven cores are running at 2.8Ghz and 2.0Ghz. Likewise, the GPU frequency is also overclocked at 719MHz which is 39Mhz faster than a regular SD 8 Gen 2 processor.
Moving on, there is up to 512GB of storage and 8GB of LPDDR5X RAM on both handsets. The Galaxy S23 also has a 128GB variant that uses UFS 3.1 storage while all other models enjoy UFS 4.0 storage.

Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus vs iPhone 14, 14 Plus in Nepal
Year by year, the price of the Samsung S series is increasing in Nepal. They always give head-to-head competition to the base lineup of the Apple iPhone. These two Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus are competing against iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus in Nepal.
However, there is a massive price gap of around NPR 20,000 between the S23 / iPhone 14 and S23+ / iPhone 14 Plus. As there is no major upgrade on the S23 series from the S22 series, you can think of getting a regular iPhone 14.
But there are lots of things the iPhone 14 lacks. Firstly, the high refresh rate. Both iPhone 14 and 14 Plus run on a 60hz refresh rate whereas the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus are featuring smooth 120hz refresh rate. Also, they have additional features like a telephoto lens and faster charging.
However, iPhone 14 takes the lead in the performance with its primary and ultrawide lens. Its videography ability is way ahead of the S23 series. But with a new chipset and better software optimization, Samsung claims the S23 series to be the best smartphone in Night photography.
So, it all comes down to you. Either you want to enter in Apple eco-system or you can enjoy Android features. One thing you need to keep in mind is the resell value of iPhones. Even after a year, you can sell the iPhone 14 for around NPR 1 Lakhs but the price of the Android flagship declines by over 50% within a year.
