A55 has ... moreit's no surprise that the A55 has "better cooling" because they cover the entire motherboard with sheet of copper. but still, not ideal for tropical environment. instead getting the full power of the cpu, it underclocks to hide the weakness as well.

    brktnl, 15 Apr 2024Well, S23FE is one step forward to me. only if you use it as a feature phone.

          Bad value for the money.

              If you use your phone for regular tasks (no hardcore gaming) & you don’t care about:
              - Wireless Charging / Dex mode / Telephoto Zoom / 4K60 Video / IP68 (over 67) / Hardware proximity sensor (over virtual)

              The A55 is a clear winner, battery differences are huge! + extra year of updates + slightly thinner bezels + microSD slot for my fellow game emulation lovers out there! (Samsung knew it will cannibalize sales of S23 FE & therefore chose not to release it in the US)

              But I’ll wait until Mid-August (when the A5x prices typically drop according to price trackers) & get the White/Pink. 👌🏻 (It’s important to note how the Pink variant will run out of stock fast just like the Purple A54, so keep that in mind if you’re planning to gift this color to your mom 😁)

                      A55 has better cooling than the aggressive 8G1. You are trading down that extra CPU and GPU power, Dynamic AMOLED, higher brightness, the telephoto, 8K video (useless) and Samsung DeX. A55 has 12GB of RAM available, however. But still, A55 is more efficient but bulky at a price

                                    Well, S23FE is one step forward to me.
