My mom's phone was stolen last week. She had a S20FE which she loved, and now I want to gift her a new phone.
 She is not very techy but she loves a good phone experience and my budget is for S23FE but if i stretch it a little bit I can buy her S22 Ultra, for the better experience. 
In the UK both phones come with Exynos Chipset.

I have reviewed both phones on YouTube and I would love to give her the S22U but there are many complaints about overheating, which I am mostly worried about, and that the battery drains fast. Otherwise I am impressed with the phone and the bigger screen and the over all top performance of an Ultra phone.

The S23FE is newer and has alot of features, but the screen is smaller and I know she would like a bigger screen, but also there are complaints about the battery life.

From what I reviewed the S22U performs better, but I was wondering if I can get a few user experience opinions to help me chose which phone to buy. Why I can't decide is because over all the S22U is better, but older, while the S23FE is newer. If we had both phones with Snapdragon in the UK still the S22U would be a no brainer for me, but possibly the Exynos on the S23FE is better moded. Feature wise, i believe that the S22U is better.


Thank you very much.

Me too. I'm one of those who HAS to have the latest and best phone, and then end up just texting, calling and posting in here lol. Is it overkill...maybe, but that's just me.

I know, same here, but for a while now you can get a great experience even with cheaper phones. I had midrange ones and I couldn't believe they were just midrange because they were such good phones.

If you think she'd make good use of a stylus and a decent camera, then go for the S22U. If your talking long-term, then go for the s23fe as it will receive updates longer than the s22u.

I have the S22U. Haven't had any issues as all regarding heat. If anything I'd say it was quite good at keeping a consistent cool temp, even under load

That sounds great, specs and price wise is what suits me the best, my mom is a heavy user but mostly for social media, I want a good device for her to enjoy the experience fully, the S22U is the best phone specs and price wise and it still has years of updates ahead. I can find at a decent price brand new now. If you don't mind which Chipset version do you have? I am mostly curious for the battery life.

I thought about that, but in all the reviews i watched, the FE is a great phone and I am sure she would enjoy it, but between the two, the S22U is the beast, and has a bigger screen. They are both using Exynos in Europe so for it's specs, the S22U it's still the better choice.
