Galaxy M23 came to light in the company of several other mid-range Samsung devices. When so many models are presented together, it is easy to go unnoticed and at the same time underestimated. However, the Galaxy M23 has its place under the sun. You will be convinced of this when you study in detail the characteristics of the model.

Before reading the full review, you can familiarize yourself with the detailed Samsung Galaxy M23 specs or watch the video below the article.

You should already know that it is a simplified version of the Galaxy M33. In it we see the same display, an 8-core processor with a frequency of up to 2.2 GHz and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The smartphone is available in three colors - dark green, orange and light blue and has a relatively light weight.

The exterior of the Galaxy M23 has been updated, but does not offer any remarkable concepts. On the back panel we see a block of cameras, and the selfie camera is positioned in a familiar slot at the top center of the screen.

The colors of the case are stylish and interesting, but also a bit boring. The material from which the case is made does not raise doubts about quality and fully complies with the price range. It is based on plastic, which may seem too easy to the sophisticated user.

You can always make the look of the Galaxy M23 more attractive. For example, using a spectacular case.

You will find the fingerprint scanner side mounted. This solution may not appeal to those of you who are used to finding it built into the screen. However, it is worth noting that the scanner works accurately and flawlessly.


The smartphone has a large screen with a diagonal of 6.6 inches. It is made of TFT LCD technology and has a resolution of 1080 x 2408 pixels. The ratio of the parties is standard. The increased refresh rate will delight anyone who wants a smoother and faster picture. The maximum brightness will also leave positive emotions. You can easily read information from the screen of the Galaxy M23, even if it's sunny outside.


The flawless operation of the Galaxy M23 is based on a set of good technical parameters. The chipset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G and is combined with an Adreno 619 video accelerator. They ensure smooth operation of the Android 12 operating system with a screen refresh rate of 90 Hz.

You will find two modifications of the smartphone on the market. One comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The other has more RAM - 6 GB.

As a result, the Galaxy M23 will give you smoothness, speed and responsiveness. This is not a smartphone designed for gamers. Its performance is sufficient for launching and maintaining games with low to medium graphics settings.

The processor is characterized by its energy efficiency and in normal use shows no signs of critical heating. Thus, even prolonged games will not lead to discomfort or risk.

For those of you who need more storage for photos, videos and music, there is a separate memory card slot.


To the balanced features of the Galaxy M23 we must add the photographic capabilities. On the back of the device there is a block of three cameras - a standard solution lately. The main module is wide-angle, 50-megapixel. It is complemented by an ultra-wide angle macro module. The latter two have an ancillary function and are of rather mediocre quality.

The main module is the one that will help you take better pictures. It has an LED flash and standard shooting modes. Supports the creation of 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The photos with the rear camera in daylight enjoy realistic colors. There is a special mode for night photos.

The capabilities of the selfie camera are more modest. It records videos with a resolution of up to 1080 pixels. Being wide-angle will allow you to include more objects and people in one frame. It is ideal for video calls.

Autonomous work

Galaxy M23 has a non-removable battery with a capacity of 6000 mAh. You can count on two days of battery life before reaching for the charger. What you may not like is the loading speed. Due to the capacity of the battery and the capabilities of the device, we recommend recharging the Galaxy M23 at night.

The good news is that the manufacturer has provided support for 25W fast charging technology. Compared to many Chinese competitors, this is not who knows what, but it is still nothing. There can be no question of wireless or inverse charging.


Galaxy M23 is an affordable product of the South Korean company Samsung. It carries a lot of distinctive features of its family of smartphones. Although it does not offer the latest achievements of the brand, it is a good choice for fans of Android phones. Among its strongest assets is the support of 5G networks and NFC for contactless payments.
