Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Full Review

Published

on


The big bang of the tech industry—the Galaxy S24 Ultra—is in the market now. Beyond question, it is a power package of all the premium features, specifications, and design. Samsung debuted the Galaxy S24 Ultra on January 17th in California, along with its two companion smartphones, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+.

Here’s Galaxy S24 Ultra Full Review

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is a tough competitor to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, for sure. In all ways, it seems perfectly fine, whether it is about processor, software, hardware, design, camera, and whatnot. Let us explain to you the detailed tweaks of this premium smartphone with a closer look at it.

Galaxy S24 Ultra Specifications

Design –

The Galaxy S24 Ultra might pretty much look similar to its processor smartphones, the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra, but the brand has designed it in a way that never goes out of trend. There is a minor new twerk that makes it different and vibrant as compared to the previous two, which is its “flat display”.

Galaxy S24 Ultra Full Review

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is completely flat, which makes sense and also enhances the S-Pen experience because, on the curved display, when using the S Pen, you get a little too close to the edges and the pen just flies off. So now the flat display like paper makes enough sense while using the S Pen seamlessly. Its dimensions are 126.3 x 79.0 x 8.6 mm, and it weighs 232 grams. The frame is now made of titanium for the iPhone Pro series.

Colors –

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is available in four color variants: Titanium Gray, Titanium Black, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Yellow. All these colors will deliver a classy as well as vibrant look.

Display

The Galaxy S24 Ultra features a 6.8-inch dynamic LTPO AMOLED 2X reflective and full rectangle display. This time, the brand has attached a massively bright display with 2600 nits and a 120 Hz refresh rate, 1440 x 3120 pixels. This time, a Corning Gorilla Glass Armor protects it. Its screen is super bright, but if it’s super reflective, then the ongoing fingerprint will also reflect. But the company has attached an anti-glare, and it’s not just a screen protector because it does not arrive with a screen protector; it’s the actual display.

Camera –

It is absolutely a smartphone with quite smart camera specifications as well as fantastic features. Even though the brand took away the 10-megapixel optical camera and replaced it with the 5-megapixel optical camera, the images still appear super classy, and the 5-megapixel optical camera is 50 MP, so even while taking 10-megapixel zoom images, the quality seems optical in place of digital.

Galaxy S24 Ultra Camera Review

The Galaxy S24 Ultra features 200 MP (f/1.7). 24mm wide camera, 50MP (f/3.4) 111mm periscope telephoto with 5x, 10MP (f/2.4) 67mm telephoto with 3x, and 12MP (f/2.2) 13mm ultrawide. On the flip side, the selfie camera is 12 MP (f/2.2) and 26mm wide.

Jumping on its video quality, then recording videos on the Galaxy S24 Ultra is beyond imagination as compared to any other rest of the Galaxy smartphones. Now you can switch between all lenses while recording at 4K at 60 fps.

Apart from this, if you want to go into the pro video mode, then you can actually do 4K at 120 frames per second, which is Bonkers feature, especially if you use it to edit your videos for professional purposes. You can slow that 120 video down into a 30 frame, 30 FPS timeline, which will result in a super slow motion at 4K quality, which is remarkable. Then the AI helps you find a video in your gallery application; tap and hold it. Boom, it’s slow motion. Just like that, the AI kind of looks at the video in real time.

Performance –

The Galaxy S24 Ultra delivers an unbeatable performance, honestly. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, based on 4nm, powers the Galaxy S24 Ultra, making it the most upgraded edition yet. It has an octa-core that includes 1×3.39GHz Cortex-X4 and 3×3.1GHz Cortex-A720 and 2×2.9GHz Cortex-A720 and 2×2.2GHz Cortex-A520, and the GPU is Adreno 750 (1 GHz).

This chipset leads to smooth and fluent high-end performance without even lagging, gaming, or overheating issues.

Operating System:

The Galaxy S24 Ultra runs Android 14-powered OneUI 6.1. It is the first device to get powered by Android 14 and the latest One UI 6.1 out of the box, due to which it has several exclusive and brand new features for enhancing the user experience as per their convenience.

Moving on to the software support, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will get seven years of major Android OS updates and security patches. Since it launched on Android 14, it will get major OS updates up to Android 21 and security patches until 2031. Could you think of anything better than this? However, Google has already allotted seven years of major OS updates for its Pixel 8 series.

Battery –

The Galaxy S24 Ultra has a battery life of 5000 mAh with the support of 45W weird, which will charge the phone within 30 minutes from 0% to 60%, and 15W wireless charging support. It also has 4.5W reverse wireless support. However, at first, it usually seems like the worst period of battery life for an Android smartphone because the operating system has not optimized how you use the phone yet, but even after setting it up, it will automatically perform in an ordinary way.

Build Quality:

In terms of build quality, this time the frame is made up of titanium. That’s right, and it just delivers a cool bible. It feels premium, and you have that nice peace of mind that you are getting a really high-quality product, and the screen is apparently four times more scratch-resistant as compared to the previous devices. Also, it is quite grippy on the sides, which will protect it from slipping out of hands, whereas the buttons are nice and clicky.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is powered by an IP68 rating, which makes it fully waterproof, so you can use your smartphone in rainy scenarios.

Storage –

The Galaxy S24 Ultra has three variants based on its memory:

  • 12GB of RAM + 256GB of internal storage
  • 12GB of RAM + 512GB of internal storage
  • 12GB of RAM + 1TB of internal storage

Galaxy AI

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the very first smartphone to get Galaxy AI. Samsung has powered the device with brand new AI features that are convenient and will enhance the user’s experience. There are bundles of brand new AI features that have arrived with the Galaxy S24 Ultra, such as:

  • Circle to Search
  • Live Translate
  • Note Assistant
  • Photo Assistant
  • AI-generated summary of the recording.

Price and Availability

Samsung has priced the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s each variant at the specific ranges:

  • 12GB RAM + 256GB storage: $1299.99
  • 12GB RAM + 512GB storage: $1419.99
  • 12GB RAM + 1TB storage: $1659.99

Also, pre-orders have already started for this manual device. You can grab it from Amazon (certain bank offers and discounts are available on several bank credit cards), Samsung.com, and Samsung Stores nearby.

Samsung Galaxy AI’s Circle to Search Could Soon Get a new Upgrade

Published

on

By


Samsung introduced its Galaxy AI, which consists of several generative AI features. Circle to Search with Google is one of the most admired features. Now, it may soon get a major upgrade based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode. 

The Circle to Search with Google feature is available on both Galaxy S24 and Pixel 8 devices, and reports are saying that soon it could get a big usability upgrade and become a bit harder to trigger by accident. The forthcoming changes will be based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode, in which host Rachid Finge spoke with Erin Lynch and Alistair Pott, who worked with the Circle to Search development team. 

During the podcast, Lynch admits that the circle to search with was quite easy to activate by accidental touches as it’s located on the same gesture bar or home button that users use for other purposes most of the time. Regarding this, she and Pott assured that Google was working to fix it to avoid accidentally activating this feature; however, they didn’t elaborate on the assurance. 

However, the Circle to Search feature already received an update that gives it the power to translate circled text. It is expected that the future update could be a combined search and lens results page while using the Circle to Search feature instead of having them separate as they are now. 

Apart from this, the podcast unveiled a few interesting twists regarding how Circle to Search came to be. It came to light that it is based on Google Lens and has been in development since January 2023, after Google staffers were actively working on how Lens became more readily available outside its app.

Samsung Ecosystem Matching Apple’s Tight Integration

Published

on


Samsung offers a unique ecosystem that delivers a distinct experience as compared to its competitor, Apple. 

Samsung has its own OG (original) ecosystem and is even better than its rival Apple in functionality. It’s not just a phrase, but here we are mentioning some of the key reasons why, in many ways, it’s better. However, Samsung lagged behind Apple in delivering a coordinated ecosystem with well-designed gadgets, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has a lack of willpower. 

Now, Samsung has covered the gap in some areas and even exceeded Apple in others. Check out the key facts mentioned below:

Samsung’s versatility over Apple 

From then to now, Apple has only offered limited models, tons of monopolies, and high-budget. On the other hand, Samsung offers dozens of phones in any size and budget you could prefer. The same fact is true of tablets: Apple’s lineup has gotten more complex, but Samsung is still offering more options. 

Samsung has an extra lineup: ‘Foldable phones’ – 

Samsung offers dozens of foldable phones; one is a book-style foldable, and the other is a flip, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Also, we are gearing up for the latest Galaxy Z Fold 6 series. Whereas Apple has yet to offer its very first foldable device. Samsung even offers a phone with a built-in stylus, the Galaxy S Ultra’. Apple does not do that sort of thing, ever. 

Samsung offers one Galaxy for every Apple device

Samsung offers one Galaxy for each Apple device; for instance, for the Apple Watch, Samsung offers the Galaxy Watch; for AirPods, there’s the Galaxy Buds; for MacBooks, Samsung laptops run Windows; or you can launch Samsung DeX on a Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Both brands offer monitors, keyboards, and mice. Somehow, Samsung lacks a VR headset compared to Apple’s Vision Pro, but its ecosystem expands to smart home appliances and even TVs. 

Galaxy’ are more compatible than Apple devices.

Comparing the latest devices of both brands, the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung offers a better display, more RAM, and faster charging speeds than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Jumping on tablets! Galaxy S9 Ultra versus iPad Pro: Samsung offers a 14.6-inch display, whereas Apple offers a 12.9-inch. It is crystal clear that Samsung is winning here. 

Samsung’s Galaxy devices are now capable of delivering similar smooth connectivity features as Apple’s. Both Apple and Samsung’s ecosystems let you share files, switch audio between devices, and more; the only difference appears in the way of functionality or features’ names.

Samsung has more features than Apple

Samsung offers more features as compared to Apple; for instance, Samsung’s DeX offers a desktop-like experience on phones and tablets and multitasking with features like resizable windows, app minimization, and a taskbar. Samsung prioritizes a UI to optimize multitasking, whereas Apple boasts a supreme app ecosystem. Samsung has yet to offer a traditional desktop operating system; currently, it integrates heavily with Microsoft’s. 

Unlike Apple’s focus on supreme integration within its ecosystem, Samsung prefers to go with quality devices that are capable of performing well independently. Samsung avoids monopolies; you can seamlessly connect your Galaxy devices with non-Galaxy devices like Windows PCs. 

These are key facts that transparently prove Samsung’s ecosystem is far better than Apple’s.

Samsung UK announced its Team Samsung Galaxy roster in the UK for the Olympics, 100 days before the Paralympic Games in Paris 2024. 

This new announcement from Samsung UK coincides with Samsung’s global theme, “Open Always Wins.” Samsung has already unveiled its global ambassador line-up earlier this year, made up of more than 25 Olympians and Paralympians, which include UK representative Sky Brown, British skateboarding star and long-standing brand ambassador, next to breakdancer Karam Singh.

The next is Lola Tambling (Skateboarder), a rising skateboarding star full of fearless spirit who embodies the sport’s dynamism, inspiring the future generation. Joe Hinson, a skateboarder and national champion, is full of enthusiasm that reflects Samsung’s open-minded culture. Bethany Shriever, a cyclist and BMX racer, made history by winning gold at Tokyo 2020, setting a new record for British BMX racing. 

The Director of Marketing, Omnichannel, and Head of Ireland, MX Division, stated that “These athletes perfectly embody the spirit of ‘Open Always Wins’, which is all about defying limitations, embracing innovation, and inspiring others to achieve their dreams. We’re fully behind these incredible people as they strive for their dreams, and we know the nation will be behind them too. We can’t wait to see them perform in Paris!”
