These phones will be the first to offer Bixby, a digital personal assistant. Bixby can do everything from learning your routines and suggesting apps for you to setting reminders and keeping track of your to-do list. It can even recognize landmarks in your photos and tell you more about it.

The best Samsung phones come in all shapes and sizes, whether you're looking for a budget model under $500, a powerful flagship or a versatile foldable phone. And we're here to help you pick the right device for your needs based on our testing.

With Samsung rolling out new flagships to start the year, the Galaxy S23 Ultra leaps to the top of the best Samsung phones list, though the more affordable Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus fall right behind it. And if you're really looking to save, the Galaxy S22 remains a part of Samsung's lineup at a reduced cost.

Beyond flagships, Samsung's other handsets include everything from unique (and pricey) foldables to more affordable budget models. It's a diverse set of offerings, and you can potentially benefit from the company's wide array of phones. Our list of the best Samsung phones includes devices from al those categories. See what you can save with the best Samsung Galaxy S23 deals along with our Samsung promo codes.

As well as being the new top Galaxy S model, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is also one of the best phones around generally, beating even the usually indomitable iPhone on photography and performance in some areas.

The new 200MP camera proves to be very versatile, offering wonderful detail and color depending on your priority. The special Galaxy-only version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 offers lots of power, while the display is as colorful and bright as ever, even though Samsung's improved the phone's power efficiency.

Samsung's still asking for a lot of money for this phone, and has stuck with a curved display, even if the angle's less extreme than previous years. We're also unimpressed by its charging speed, which even at 45W is a bit slow. But if you've got the cash to splash, you won't get a better Galaxy phone right now than this one.

Everything you get from the Galaxy S23, you'll find in the Galaxy S23 Plus, only with a much bigger screen. It's the best Samsung phone to get if you prefer super-sized displays but can't swing the Galaxy S23 Ultra's $1,119 starting price.

Otherwise, there's little difference between the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, though we'd say that's a good thing. You can expect a bright, beautiful display, good cameras, and four years of Android software updates. That should be more than enough for fans of big-screen phones.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 takes the best foldable phone and makes it better in multiple ways. For one, Samsung and Google made it much easier to multitask by adding a taskbar, and you can now drag and drop content between more apps when you're running them side by side.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is an impressive foldable phone for someone who wants a big screen in a compact design. Not only is the design ever so slightly sleeker, the battery life has vastly improved over the Galaxy Z Flip 3 last year. In our custom battery life test, the Flip 4 went for considerably longer than its predecessor.

Does the Galaxy S22 get better with age? Perhaps not, but the fact that Samsung cut the price on this phone by $100 after the arrival of the Galaxy S23 makes it an attractive option for bargain hunters.

Our Galaxy S23 vs. Galaxy S22 face-off addresses the differences between these two phones, but the upshot is that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in the newer phone gives a big boost to both performance and battery life. There's not much difference in the cameras, though, and while the Galaxy S23 display has a higher maximum brightness, the Galaxy S22 is plenty bright in its own right.

Thanks to Samsung's generous update policy, the Galaxy S22 can expect another three years of software updates. If you don't need the latest and greatest hardware, this older model could be your chance to save on one of the best Samsung phones.

Picking which Samsung phone to buy is primarily driven by budget considerations. You're not going to spring for a Galaxy S23 Ultra, for example, if you're not prepared with at least $1,199 even if you opt to spread those payments out over time. But other factors need to be taken into consideration as well.

Budget-minded shoppers have a plethora of options, from the reduced price tags of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 FE to the midrange Galaxy A series. You can also find discounts on Samsung phones by buying directly from the phone maker and trading in your current device. Check out the best Samsung phone deals for the latest savings.

With the Galaxy S23 release now behind us, Samsung will likely turn to its midrange phones next. We've already seen the low-cost Galaxy A14 at CES 2023, with more Galaxy A releases rumored for the spring. The Galaxy S22 FE has been dropped from Samsung's plans, but there could be a Galaxy S23 FE in the second half of this year. Also around that time, we're expecting to see new versions of Samsung's foldable phones in the form of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5.

In order for a smartphone to make our best phone list, it needs to excel on several tests that we run on every handset. We perform some of these tests in our labs and some in the real world. See our detailed explanation on how Tom's Guide tests and reviews smartphones for more information.

When it comes to performance, we rely on such synthetic benchmarks as Geekbench 5 and 3DMark to measure graphics performance. These tests allow us to compare performance across iPhones and Android devices. We also run a real-world video transcoding test on each phone using the Adobe Premiere Rush app and time the result. (We unfortunately have to skip this test on some phones due to app compatibility issues, but we attempt this benchmark with each device we get in to review.)

To measure the quality of a phone's display, we perform lab tests to determine the brightness of the panel (in nits), as well as how colorful each screen is (DCI-P3 color gamut). In these cases, higher numbers are better. We also measure color accuracy of each panel with a Delta-E rating, where lower numbers are better and score of 0 is perfect.

One of the most important tests we run is the Tom's Guide battery test. We run a web surfing test over 5G (or 4G if the phone doesn't have 5G support) at 150 nits of screen brightness until the battery gives out. In general, a phone that lasts 10 hours or more is good, and anything above 11 hours makes our list of the best phone battery life.

Last but not least, we take the best phones out in the field to take photos outdoors, indoors and at night in low light to see how they perform versus their closest competitors. We take shots of landscapes, food, portraits and more, and also allow you to be the judge with side-by-side comparisons in our reviews.

In the world of consumer electronics, Samsung is arguably the most popular, with its product empire spanning from home appliances to mobile computing to software and services. Even if we tunnel into its smartphone lines, there are almost too many options to count. And with the announcement of the Galaxy S23, there are even more reasons to consider an upgrade if you're a Samsung loyalist.

That said, ZDNET has tested, reviewed, and compared the best and worst Samsung Galaxy smartphones over the years, including the value-driven A-series, the flagship S-series, and the shape-shifting foldables that make up the Z-series.

See below for my top picks of 2023 -- the phones I'd recommend from the Galaxy maker. And if you want more information on the latest Galaxy S23 models, you can also check out our Samsung Unpacked hub.

In the grand calculus of the Samsung multiverse, the Galaxy S23 Ultra reigns supreme. It's arguably the most no-frills smartphone that you can buy on the market, let alone from Samsung, which puts it at the top spot on our list.

Being the latest and greatest also means that the S23 Ultra comes equipped with Samsung's newest advancements in camera technology, including a 200-megapixel main lens that's capable of capturing the highest-resolution images we've seen on any Galaxy phone. There's also 8K video recording at 30 frames per second if you're into that.

All this is to say that the Galaxy S23 Ultra is our pick for the best Samsung phone overall, at least for now. Who knows how game-changing the company's line of foldables will be this year, and what other models are on the docket?

The 2020 Galaxy Z Fold 2 set the bar for foldable devices that also serve as mini tablets. The Z Fold 3 improved on that phone with S Pen support and IPX8 water resistance, two features requested by Fold users. With the Z Fold 4, Samsung again addressed user requests and improved the rear cameras and form factor of the phone.

While the Z Fold 4 remains the best Samsung foldable, it's the Z Flip 4 that will likely sell the most and appeal to the masses. Not only is the clamshell handset less expensive than the Z Fold, but it's more compact and portable, and has a more user-friendly learning curve.

Samsung released the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro back in September and it remains the best rugged option from the Korean giant. In fact, it's one of the only rugged smartphones that supports 5G connectivity, making the XCover 6 Pro a top prospect for industrial and enterprise users who work in hazardous environments. 041b061a72
