Samsung Galaxy S24+ Review: Verdict

Before I give my final verdict, let’s talk about alternatives. The OnePlus 12 (Review) is an excellent option with a bigger screen, slightly better cameras, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, a bigger battery, and faster charging. It’s also cheaper than the Galaxy S24+. The Google Pixel 8 Pro (Review) will offer better camera performance in stills, added AI features, and a similar or better software experience. Again, the Pixel 8 Pro is also cheaper and has a better telephoto camera. You can also switch to the iPhone 15 Plus, which, while lacking a telephoto camera, will offer battery life and performance. Finally, you can also give the Galaxy S23 Ultra a shot. It will provide better performance, a similar-sized display, S-Pen support, a bigger battery, and better cameras. You can probably get the phone for about the same price as the Galaxy S24+.

As I mentioned at the start, the Galaxy Plus variant is usually neglected by consumers as it only offers a bigger screen and battery compared to the smaller S variant. While that may have been the case in the last couple of years, the Galaxy S24+ changes things. You now get a better, brighter display, improved build quality, 12GB RAM as standard, and seven years of software updates. It’s closer now to the Galaxy S24 Ultra in terms of specifications and, therefore, is a better buy if you want to save some money and aren’t particularly interested in the better cameras offered by the Ultra but want a bigger display and battery.
