I've been using the S23 for a while, and the software updates have been impressive. It's keeping pace with Pixel phones. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 keeps everything smooth. Could get slightly warm, but that's minor.

Just got my hands on the Galaxy S23, and I'm loving its compact design. The glass back in green is stunning and has held up well. Still looking for a good leather case though. The display quality is unmatched!

The S23 has been my daily driver, and I'm quite satisfied. The camera system is great, though I've noticed some blurring issues on flat surfaces. The haptics and speaker quality are also excellent.
