Samsung Galaxy A23 5G Review: Galaxy A series smartphones are known for their 4G/5G segmentation. We thought 2022 would put an end to this, and indeed it was for the A33, A53 and A73. However, the entry-level Galaxy A13 and Galaxy A23 are still subjected to this treatment, and today we will be reviewing the 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy A23. The Galaxy A23 5G is the same smartphone as its LTE counterpart, something that is not often the case with these versions. Samsung has used the Snapdragon 695 5G chipset instead of the Snapdragon 680, which in addition to the 5G modem, allows the GPU to throttle the interface down to 120fps for some extra smooth action on the 6.6-inch PLS LCD 1080p screen.
We appreciate the 120Hz upgrade as it should make things smoother, especially with the new One UI 5 (along with Android 13) update that is already available on this phone. The panel still has the same old-school waterdrop-shaped notch, which may sound outdated but isn’t a huge flaw in our books.
The phone shares a similar no-nonsense design with the rest of the Galaxy A phones with a flat Gorilla Glass front, a plastic frame, and a matte plastic back that is reminiscent of the high-end Galaxy S22 series. There is no water protection on the Galaxy A23 5G model, something that is reserved for the AMOLED-packing Galaxy A33 and above.
Even though the Galaxy A23 5G is aimed at the entry-level market, we do appreciate its camera gear – it has four cameras on the back, starting with a 50MP OIS primary, then a 5MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro camera, and finally. There is a 2MP depth sensor. However, the 8MP selfie camera is a basic piece of kit.
Other notable specs are the tri-card slot with a microSD tray, 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, and a large 5,000mAh with 25W wired charging support.

The most notable omissions, if you’ve followed the Galaxy A phones recently, are the OLED panel and ingress protection. There are a few other odd bits too – virtual proximity sensing remains as controversial as ever, and the lack of an actual ambient light sensor is baffling. On top of that, there’s no charger in the box.
Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G comes in a small paper box, which houses the phone and a white USB-C cable. That’s it.
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G design, build quality, handling are very similar to all the recent Galaxy A and Galaxy S phones, which is great. To protect the display of the Galaxy A23 5G, flat Gorilla Glass 5 sheet has been given in it. The plastic frame is thick, made of plastic and is slightly curved. And then, there’s the plastic back with a matte finish. Fingerprints and smudges stick to the back of our black model, and if that bothers you, we suggest exploring the rest of the color options – white, peach and blue.
