Evolution Unveiled - Samsung Galaxy S23 vs. S24: A Comprehensive Comparison

Samsung has just officially released their yearly upgrade and the new Samsung Galaxy S24 looks like the spitting image of Samsung Galaxy S23.

So, is it really worth it to buy the new phone?

The only way to know the answer is to compare the two, which is what we’re here to do. Before you shop around for new smartphone cases, let’s analyze the key features and improvements between the two phones.

Design and Display

For years now, Samsung has been following the same smartphone design formula. It’s why the Galaxy S24 and S23 look quite similar. However, you will notice a slight difference if you look a bit closer to the 2024 models.

The difference? Samsung Galaxy S24 has flat frames.

This change isn’t a make-or-break thing but if the appearance of the phone matters to you, count on the fact that the S24 models look gorgeous. Samsung has further refined its design, with a flat display and rounded sides that make it look more cohesive and durable.

As for the display, Galaxy S24 has a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen. This comes with a vision booster and a 120Hz refresh rate. Both aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution are the same with the S23 but the S24 does have improved low-light visibility thanks to better pixel size.

Changes or not, smartphones have delicate displays so they need the best screen protector. Besides that, it’s best to invest in durable Samsung cases that can protect the phone from impacts and drops.

You need rugged phone cases that offer extreme durability and suitability for use in high-risk, harsh environments. You need a slim-fit Samsung phone case compatible with S23 and S24 models, one designed to protect both phones’ vulnerable parts.

Galaxy S23 and S24 are not big on photography, which their cameras suitably reflect. The S24 model is equipped with several cameras—a 50MP main camera, a 12MP Ultra Wide camera, a 12MP front-facing camera, and a 10MP telephoto that has 3X optical zoom.

Last year’s model has almost the same camera selection. Galaxy S23 also has a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The difference is its 10MP telephoto lens not only has 3X optical zoom but a 30X space zoom.

While S24 doesn’t have the space zoom, it does have AI and that helps to bridge the missing camera feature. The AI technology helps improve picture and video quality with a perceived ability to increase a shot’s zoom potential.

The Samsung AI is a huge advantage because it doesn’t only increase the zoom but also improves the photos’ general quality. It’s so powerful it can help Galaxy S24 create 5X or 10X zoom even when it doesn’t have the hardware for that.

Chips, RAM, and Batteries

In terms of other hardware, one of S24’s most notable changes is the new chips. The newer model, including S24+, uses Exynos and Qualcomm chips. In the US, both Galaxy S24 and S24+ use Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Globally, they use Exynos 2400.

Don’t worry because this is an upgrade. Both processors are more powerful compared to the Qualcomm chipsets used in Galaxy S23 phones and other past-generation chips. They are vastly different with their enhanced ray tracing, not to mention the AI capabilities.

On the other hand, nothing has changed with both models’ RAM. They both have 8GB RAMS, which is good enough for multiple tasks and playing games. You will not face lags or slowing down problems with this much memory.

Another improved feature of the S24 model lies in its cooling ability. It’s one the biggest upgrades—Galaxy S24 has 1.5X and 1.6X larger vapor chambers than S23, which help cool the smartphones remarkably well.

Paired with the military-grade rugged case protection of SUPCASE UB Pro or another Samsung case, your S23 or S24 phone can have a much longer lifespan.

What about the batteries? You probably already heard this, but the Galaxy S24 has slightly bigger batteries than the S23 model. Galaxy S23 has a 3,900mAh battery while S24 features a 4,000 battery. The S24+ model even has a bigger battery at 4,900mAh.

Operating System, Firmware Support, and AI

Galaxy S24’s Android operating system shows Samsung did not spare any effort in improving its performance through software. This was evident not only in the new chipset but also in the One UI 6.1 Android 14 update.

Courtesy of the phone’s AI capabilities, the S24 enjoys some major improvements. One of which is its ability to recognize voices, organize notes and compile them, and translate in-call. Galaxy S24 can even make AI wallpapers.

The AI features of the S24 also include Chat Assist, instant slo-mo playback, single take for the cameras, dual recording mode, and more. There are many things about S24’s software that aren’t available on Galaxy S23, most of which are courtesy of the models’ AI tools.

SUPCASE UB Pro for Galaxy S23 and S24

Galaxy S23 and S24 look almost identical but have a few important upgrades. From the flat display to the bigger batteries, the S24 showcases some incredible new features that make the protection of rugged phone cases crucial.

After all, you want to make the most of your phone and the way to do that is simply to protect it. Whether you’re an ordinary office worker or someone who works in the industrial industry, you need rugged cases to ensure your phone survives bumps, drops, and impacts.

Good thing we know where you can find the best rugged case for Samsung Galaxy S24 with enhanced drop protection. SUPCASE has the military-grade phone cases you’re looking for in the form of the Unicorn Beetle PRO (UB Pro).
