"Samsung updates very bad already and useless many times.." More like users are very bad. Only two companies in the world fixing 0-day issues fast are apple and samsung. Samsung has so many devices and still gives monthly security upda...

There's different quality on zooming after 10x to 100x for S3 ultra.. 24u good from 1x to 9.9x only but still not bad.. But i prefer 23u.. Don't care about updates..! Samsung updates very bad already and useless many times..

All s23 lineup has snapdragon no matter what region. Your facts only apply to s24 and s24+ series. Only s24u uses snapdragon globally like s23 whole lineup.
