Over the past couple of weeks I have been sooooo close to pressing that button. The trade in deals and price are almost too good to be true with discounts. 

However in todays financial mess and the rising domestic bills it is hard to justify for me. Even with good trade value and other discounts then it still equates to around £800 give or take. 

This fairly unscientific comparison by SuperSaf between the S21 ultra and S23 ultra kind of sums up my thoughts... 

As yet I am certainly not a resounding NO, and temptation hits me nearly every day when I take another look at the newer and shiny model. I have been crying myself to sleep with everyone receiving their new phones these past days🤣🤣🤣

 However I still think this S21 ultra is a beast and it still squares up to nearly every new phone today... even at 2 years old. 

Someone please hide my credit card... just until preorders are over😉

Mate S21u is a cracking phone, there is always something shiny round the corner in tech...give it a few months and the S23U will be old news and the S24u rumour mill will start alllllllll over again.

I think I might treat myself to a new phone case for a change of appearance... and a factory reset of the phone upon the 5.1 update. There is nothing like a factory reset to give that new phone setup feeling 😉

Actually also you can download the S23 artwork for your Samsung... if you really want to give it an S23 refresh 🤣🤣🤣

I am looking forward to see your photos @GusB

Some of the pictures you took with your S21 a while back were awesome.

Keep them coming with the S23 !

@smiley The S23 Ultra may be enticing but not everyone looking to upgrade at this stage, some have a Device that meets their requirements or are waiting to see how it performs in real life usage. There will always be new tech around the corner 😊

Interesting video which makes valid comparisons. 

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