In the past few years, Samsung’s flagship phones have always provided one of the best photography experiences, and for photography lovers, they are an attractive option with a high purchase value.
In the following article, I have recorded images of the same subjects as Galaxy S23 And Galaxy S23 Ultra I put them side by side so that you can get a clearer picture of how the cameras of these two phones work by comparing them. Keep in mind that the technical specifications of S23 and S23+ cameras are exactly the same. Before reviewing the results, I invite you to take a look at the technical specifications of the compared phones.
Galaxy S23 Ultra main camera It uses a 200-megapixel Samsung S5KHP2 sensor with 0.6 micrometer pixels and 1.3-inch dimensions. Every 16 adjacent pixels record the same color and form an image with 2.4 micrometer pixels and 12.5 megapixel dimensions. In addition to laser autofocus, HP2 uses all 200 million pixels in the phase detection process and is behind a 23 mm equivalent lens with f/1.7 aperture.
Galaxy S23 main camera It uses a 50-megapixel Samsung S5KGN3 sensor with 1-micrometer pixels and 1.56-inch dimensions, and uses phase detection focus (PDAF) and hardware image stabilization (OIS) for more accuracy in photography. Behind this sensor is a 24mm lens with f/1.7 aperture. By default, the photos of the main camera are recorded with a resolution of 12 megapixels; But you can use the native resolution of 50 megapixels to record larger photos.
Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 3x and 10x telephoto cameras They use a 10-megapixel Sony IMX754 sensor with dimensions of 1/3.52 inches and 1.12 micrometer pixels. In front of the 3x and 10x telephoto cameras of the S23 Ultra, there are 69 and 230 mm lenses with f/2.4 and f/4.9 apertures, respectively. Both cameras use optical stabilization and Dual Pixel phase detection focus.
3x telephoto camera Galaxy S23 It uses a 10-megapixel Samsung S5K3K1 sensor with 1/3.94-inch dimensions and one-micrometer pixels. Behind this camera, there is a 70mm lens with f/2.4 aperture and it uses optical stabilization and phase detection focus.
Galaxy S23 ultra ultrawide camera It uses Sony’s IMX564 module with dimensions of 1/2.55 inches and 1.4 micrometer pixels. This sensor is placed against a lens with an aperture of f/2.2 and a wide field of view of 120 degrees. The ultrawide camera setup also supports autofocus for capturing macro shots.
Ultrawide camera Galaxy S23 Just like the Ultra, it is equipped with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX564 sensor with 1/2.55-inch dimensions and 1.4 micrometer pixels, and behind a 13-mm lens with an f/2.2 aperture and a 120-degree field of view; However, due to the lack of autofocus, you cannot take macro photos with this camera.
Galaxy S23 Ultra selfie camera It uses Samsung’s own 12-megapixel S5K3LU sensor with 1.12 micrometer pixels, an f/2.2 aperture lens, and autofocus.
selfie camera Galaxy S23 Exactly the same as the Ultra model, it uses a 12 megapixel S5K3LU sensor with a 26 mm lens with an f/2.2 aperture, 1.12 micrometer pixels and auto focus support.
As you can see in the images below, both the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23 Ultra show nearly identical performance in recording high contrast, wide dynamic range, and pleasingly vivid colors, and in both photos, as usual for Samsung, the colors are more saturated than The reality comes to mind; But if you look closely at the details of the plant foliage and the holes of the Xbox, you will realize that the much more powerful S23 Ultra camera has captured more details.
