I would wait and see what the Fold 4 brings to the table Leah, but bear in mind that the S23 Ultra at least will likely have a substantially better camera and should be superior in other areas too, but the Fold design is a split screen delight and a uniquely immersive experience so I would only commit my money to either the Fold 4 or S23 Ultra when both phones can be compared back to back. I have not mentioned the next Flip model or any lesser S23 model as my answer would be the same. A little patience could save you a lot of regret if you buy the wrong phone for you. Good luck!. 👍👍

A matter of preference but  personally I think the S23 Ultra is likely to be more impressive  overall with higher specifications .  However the Fold devices have some appealing  and innovative features  and it is what floats your Boat.    Agree that it can be very valuable  make direct comparisons once both Devices are on the Market.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.


My Device- S21 Ultra 5G ( SM-998B/DS ) CSC= BTU , 12GB/256GB
One Ui 4.0,Android 12 Official Version.

I would wait until the new phones are released and have been bug tested etc.

I had the S20+ 5g and traded in for an S22 via the trade in deal.

The first issue I had was the company handling the trade in charged me £75 as they said my phone had screen burn, the phone was barely a year old and was never kept out of a case etc

The next issues I have is with the S22 which is riddled with glitches and app issues which I never had before so some fixes are needed

For me it was a step backwards and I would get better performance from an older phone

This is the first time I have ordered the latest phone fresh release and I won't be doing it again.

I'm sure the issues should be addressed sooner or later but I didn't expect paying through the nose to be a test pilot 🙃

Should you wait for the s23? If your going to wait for s23 you should wait for s24 or should you wait for s25/s26 etc. There is no point waiting for the next model because the model after that will be better again. Just go with the s22 and upgrade from that when you can. Don't wait for the next model because the model after the next will be better and so it goes on.

Yeah I would agree with @Andy3 in a way.
I've got the s21 ultra and much prefer it over the s22 ultra,but I did get the base s22 model because I absolutely love the compact design 🥰.
I also have the flip3 and oppo X3 pro.......I have an obsession with phones 😅. but in all honesty phones are now becoming stagnant and there isnt massive upgrades from the previous models like they lead you to believe.
Will I get the s23 or flip4 🤔 maybe but that's again just my obsession rather than any meaningful upgrade.
