Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+ or S23: Which is best for your business?

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is epic for business. The S series has a long legacy of pushing the boundaries of what your business can achieve with a smartphone, and with any of Samsung’s three new S23 phones, your business can do even more.

Introduced at Samsung’s February 2023 Galaxy Unpacked event, the Galaxy S23 series offers an impressive range of premium mobile device options that are built from the chip up for extraordinary productivity on the go. Featuring native Microsoft Office integration, Samsung’s best camera ever, and superfast charging, the entire range is packed with the power and features that business users need.

Which Galaxy S23 device is right for you and your team?

Any of the S23 devices you choose will elevate your business with Samsung’s best mobile technology yet. All three have the exclusive Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, making them the fastest Samsung Galaxy devices available. They also support innovative features like Link to Windows and Samsung DeX, which let you transform your smartphone into a PC-like experience. Finally, they incorporate Samsung’s defense-grade Knox security platform.

While any S23 device will do wonders for your business, there are some differences you’ll want to consider before making your final pick between the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. Here’s a quick comparison of key features across the lineup.

S Pen

The most “Note”-worthy difference across the Galaxy S23 lineup is S23 Ultra’s embedded, Bluetooth-enabled S Pen. When S Pen compatibility was first introduced in the preceding S22 Ultra, it effectively merged Samsung’s Galaxy S series with the business-ready Note line, which has always featured the embedded stylus. If you’re an S Pen fan or want to tap into its many functions for the first time, the S23 Ultra is your choice. You can use the S Pen to mark up documents, sketch new ideas, click through presentations, and navigate through work with absolute precision.

Built-in Bluetooth makes the S Pen double as a remote control for advancing presentation slides, taking photos, viewing media, and more. It’s really a magic wand for mobile productivity.

Display

The S23’s 6.1-inch, FHD+, 120Hz display has nice brightness and a smooth scroll, especially for a base model. It’s perfect for those who prefer a more compact phone that’s easy to use one-handed.

As you move up the S23 series, the S23+ display is also FHD+ with 25% more brightness compared to the S23. The S23+ display measures 6.6 inches — notably larger than the S23 but still very compact. The S23 Ultra’s 6.8-inch display takes the resolution up a notch, delivering stunning WQHD+ definition to view content.

With any of the S23 devices, you’re going to get a gorgeous display that adapts to the surrounding environment to be easy on the eyes. Videoconferences, documents, and media will pop off the screen. The S23 Ultra, however, takes the title for the highest resolution.

Battery and charging

Phones with larger screens require larger batteries, and that’s the case in the S23 series. The differences in battery sizes reflect the differences in display size, brightness, and resolution, but across the board, the S23 series is made to help you power through your workday, so you can work on your terms and not worry so much about the battery life of your phone.

The S23 gives you a 3,900mAh battery and 25W charging, meaning you’ll likely stay powered up from morning to evening on a single, full charge even if you’re using your phone continuously throughout your workday — for everything from checking and responding to emails to browsing the internet and working on documents.

When you step up to the S23+, you get a 4,700mAh battery with 45W charging. The S23 Ultra adds even more power with a 5,000mAh battery and 45W charging. The extra battery can be helpful if you spend much of your day collaborating while on the go, or if you frequently work with large multimedia files.

Camera

In the age of social media and digital marketing, the Galaxy S23 series enables you and your team to create professional-quality content with no tripod or gear bag required. The S23 and S23+ capture your business in vivid detail with 50MP high-resolution photos and 30x Space Zoom. The S23 Ultra takes 200MP high-resolution photos and offers 100x Space Zoom. Thanks to Auto Focus Video Stabilization, all three devices can shoot incredibly smooth video.

Consider giving your marketing team S23 Ultras, so they can present your brand in its best light while also traveling light. When it comes to a smartphone camera, staff in non-creative departments will even be wowed by the S23’s photo and video capabilities.

Storage

“Freeing up” space on your phone has been a consistent drawback of smartphones since their inception. But any option included in the new S23 series will help put that issue firmly in the past, where it belongs. If you’re going with the S23 or S23+, you’ll choose between 128GB and 256GB of storage, with 8GB RAM for snappy multitasking.

The S23 Ultra is available with 256GB or 512GB of storage, with 8GB or 128GB RAM. The faster RAM is helpful if you’re a superuser of high-powered features like Samsung DeX.

When purchasing any smartphone — and especially one for business — it’s generally advisable to get the most storage available if the price difference isn’t a significant factor.

Galaxy S23: See how epic every workday can be

Between the embedded S Pen, unreal screen resolution, all-day-and-more battery, and unparalleled camera quality, it’s easy to see why the buzz is the loudest surrounding the S23 Ultra. That said, the S23 or S23+ can certainly be a noticeable upgrade from the phone you’re using now. All three devices come with built-in Microsoft and Google integration, Samsung Knox security, and a superfast processor. With Samsung DeX natively integrated into all three, your team can even connect wirelessly to a monitor for a desktop PC experience that is powered by your phone.
