Hold both Redmi Note 12 and Samsung A24 you will realise the Redmi feels more solid and like a more expensive phone.

    Balto, 18 Nov 2023Is it worth moving from the S20 FE to S23 FE? I always seem... moreMight as well add a little budget and get the S23 instead. If you must get the S23 FE, there will be more discounts in Xmas season.

      KaToX, 19 Nov 2023Why are they selling without chargers? How is one supposed ... moreAppreciate the cable they put in the box now bcos they are removing the cable too in the next few years.

        Why are they selling without chargers? How is one supposed to charge their Samsung cell phone? I always prefer Xiaomi, but for those who use Samsung...too bad...

          Galaxy S23 FE is cheap and a very good phone.

            Flop, 17 Nov 2023Why wasn't the E2200 version tested? As far as I'... moreSnapDragon is better and it's the version people will most likely have.

              Is it worth moving from the S20 FE to S23 FE? I always seem to find specs very similar or even better in my old phone.

                          So the battery area in reviews has no "overall score" anymore ?

                            Always choose Xiaomi and you won't regret it!

                              No SD card and the usual different chips for different regions, I will have to keep using my S20 FE 5G for a little longer!

                                  Blowntoaster, 17 Nov 2023Yeah. No. The s23 FE is better. The s21fe was good. The s20... moreS20 FE 5g was the one with Snapdragon 865 that actually got the highest rating/praise even from gsmarena(4.4 stars).
                                  Also from their review back in the day

                                  S20fe
                                  '''This one is for the fans, isn't it? But if you aren't one already, the Galaxy S20 FE may very well convert you - a Samsung flagship at the core at a friendlier price.''''

                                  S21FE
                                  ''But it's not a Fan Edition, not like the S20 FE. For a phone that's supposed to cater to the fans, ditching the charger and the microSD slot does not make sense. And it doesn't bring any substantial camera updates, not even AF for selfies or ultrawide.The Galaxy S21 FE's most notable drawback is the launch price.''

                                    Why wasn't the E2200 version tested? As far as I'm aware GSMArena always tested the Exynos version in the past and the E2200 inside the S23 FE performs noticeably better than it's S22 version and has better efficiency according to a Korean reviewer Bullslab

However, it was still a great phone if you didn't have an affected unit, like I did.
