Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review


The Fan Edition is no more, yet the FE series live on. Indeed, the new Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is bringing back the beloved affordable flagship vibe, but...

Beautiful classic design, dual-glass, IP68-rated.

It's closer related to S22 than S23 and yet it arrives 18 months after the S22 family.

Overall, the Galaxy S23 FE is a good all-round smartphone, almost like a flagship-killer, even if it's a year late. It's pretty much a hard pass at $600, but at $500 or less - we'd say it's a good deal that makes sense.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review: parts bin revisited


In a year when most things got more expensive, the $599 Galaxy S23 FE is refreshing. That's much less than its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 FE , cost when it debuted at $699 almost two years ago — especially when you consider inflation.

Nice, big display ; Fun color options! ; Four years of OS upgrades and five years of security support

Lackluster telephoto lens ; Sluggish portrait mode ; Costs extra if you buy unlocked from Samsung

Samsung found a way to wedge the S23 FE in between the midrange and premium classes, and I don’t think it’s a bad thing that we have one more good phone on offer between $500 and the $800 flagships. But as for the “fans” this phone is supposedly...

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review: trusty camera system, outstanding display, great value


After one skipped generation and some small feat of the series being discontinued, Samsung has come out with the new Fan Edition Galaxy phone for 2023, the Galaxy S23 FE.

Galaxy S23 FE vs iPhone 15: mostly obvious, with some ironic differences


We are pitting the Galaxy S23 FE against the iPhone 15, and while the winner is more or less what you would expect, there are a few embarrassing differences for Apple's base flagship.

Samsung Galaxy A35 Review – One Step Back, Two Steps Forward


Looking for a more affordable midrange Samsung smartphone as a daily driver? Check out our Samsung Galaxy A35 review and see if this is the one for you.

+ Solid CPU performance with practically no thermal throttling ; + Good build quality despite using plastic chassis ; + Great display with Super AMOLED, 120Hz adaptive refresh rate and HDR10+ support ; + Satisfying battery life ; + Reliable camera...

- Charging speed is painfully slow ; - Bezels are thick ; - Virtual proximity sensor ; - Macro camera is kind of pointless to use ; - GPU performance is lacking

The Samsung Galaxy A35 5G is designed for those who want a modern smartphone experience without breaking the bank.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Review – A Budget-Friendly Contender in the World of Flagships


We'll take a closer look at its design, display, performance, cameras, battery life, software, and pricing in the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Review.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE offers practical features at a budget-friendly price. It excels in software support and provides essential flagship features. However, it is hampered by its older hardware, including a less bright display, larger bezels, and a...

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review


The Galaxy S23 FE wants to be the phone you get if you really want a dedicated telephoto lens on a device that goes for less than most flagships. But Samsung fails to make this model stand out from th

If you like the Samsung brand but balk at high-priced hones, the Galaxy S23 FE is a good alternative, although I'd also argue that the Galaxy A54 has its own strengths, plus a lower starting price. And that gets to the heart of the problem with the...

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Review


The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is a competitive mid-range phone, but with the regular S23 dipping beneath its RRP, what's the point?

Very similar design to the Galaxy S23 ; Great performance from the Exynos 2200 ; All-day battery life

The regular Galaxy S23 can be found cheaper ; Slow charging ; Fairly heavy for its size

By itself, the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE looks like a tempting option with flagship S23 DNA and the right compromises to fit its £599/$599 price tag – but with the regular Galaxy S23 already dipping beneath the FE’s RRP, it seems like it’s too little too...

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review: flagship fanfare for a cut of the price


The Fan Edition returns, but does Samsung's affordable S23 FE arrival make sense so near to the S24's launch?

Accomplished design fits neatly into Galaxy family ; 6.4-inch display larger than base S23 model ; Strong main camera performance

Older-gen hardware and so-so battery life ; The smaller Galaxy S23 now costs less ; 3x tele zoom camera has limitations

The whole 'Fan Edition' label may seem like a misnomer, as the true target audience for this phone will be lured in by its many features and sensibly pitched price point. While older-gen hardware means so-so battery life, the 6.4-inch display will...

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE review: buy this phone instead of that other one


Whatever they say, this one is still for the fans

Solid, durable build quality ; Nice color options stand out ; Design reminiscent of the Galaxy S23 Ultra

Bigger and heavier than the Galaxy S23 ; Uneven bezels and thick frame ; Camera isn’t as good as S23

The Galaxy S23 FE is the best phone to buy in this price range, and its price is its distinguishing feature. You can get an older phone for the same price, or you can find a few oddball options, but the S23 FE is a solid, reliable handset that looks...
