Phone Comparison:

So now we have looked at the two smartphones separately and considered their specs. It’s time to put this information together to determine whether the new samsung phone 2024 is really worth the upgrade. By looking at the specs, we can see that there are many upgrades to the S24, however not in aspects like the screen and camera like you’d expect. It seems this year, Samsung have focused a lot more on the integration of Galaxy AI into their tech, rather than improving the phones cameras. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy S24 cameras are the exact same as the S23 model.

Internally, the memory on the S24 is also the same as the S23 whereas there has been a slight increase in storage and a change in the tech chipset. The new S24 Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is said to boost performance and efficiency by about 25%. Externally, the screen size of the S24 is bigger, only by 0.1%, and there is also a bigger variety of colours available in the new model. This is the same for the s24 ultra samsung, which is changing its aluminium design for a titanium back like the iPhone 15 Pro.

Is Galaxy AI only on S24?

Going back to the AI addition. The Samsung S24 has introduced Galaxy AI which will power live translate and transcript assist. It is believed that this will also help improve performance and will now be a regular feature in all of Samsungs future smartphones. It has also been noted that whilst Galaxy AI isn’t currently available in the galaxy s23 series, there is a possibility it will be introduced once the S24 is officially available.




Thank you so much for reading! In conclusion, at Envirofone, we think that the new 2024 model is a great smartphone option for anyone who wants to delve further and explore the world of AI more. We are also interested to take a look at the galaxy s24 ultra. Its new AI features will certainly be interesting to try out, considering AI has became huge over the past couple years and will definitely become more common and popular in future smartphone releases. We are slightly disappointed with the lack of camera updates in this device, especially considering we will now have to wait another 12 months to get a camera update.

What do you think of the phone? Will you be purchasing when its available or will you stick with your older Samsung or Apple phone? Let us know in the comments! We have plenty of other samsung electronics on our website, check them out!
