    Product Overview

    It’s got the looks, it’s got the speed – this phantom black Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone is the full package. Whether you’re gaming, watching or scrolling, the 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED display gives you bright, vibrant view that’s bursting with detail. You might not be able to put it down – especially since 5G streams, downloads, and uploads faster than ever. Speaking of which, it’s amazing if you can’t wait to get the snaps you’ve taken with the 50MP rear camera on social media. Love your selfies? You’re covered there too thanks to the 12MP front-facing camera. And when you’re (finally) done for the day, fast charging means it’ll be ready to do it all over again in no time.

    Samsung s23

    5/5
    Great product - easy to use features / very happy with this item
    Denise Earley

    Good phone but AO disappoints

    4/5
    Great phone overall, powerfull and battery life is very good. However you need to realise that it is slightly smaller then predecessors and screen quality is worse then S10 or s20 . Unfortunately I realised it only when I opened a box and removed all protective films. So AO would not fully refound it, but take off 10% or 20% of a phone value!!!! Probably my last purchase with AO.

    Unhappy

    Received product with label attached - European Model. This product was originally put on the market by Samsung in a European country which was not the UK. This product was brought into the UK by Brand Smart Ltd which has opened the packaging and made the following changes. Replaced the existing firmware on the product with an Enhlush firmware variant and Samsung has been notified of these changes. Very surprised to see such a label on a Samsung product purchased from AO. I am with O2 & after inserting my SIM the phone is not working correctly. I have contacted O2 & also tried to contact AO to discuss the problem. Very annoyed as I cannot use the phone as it is meant to be used. This issue needs to be rsolved. Not happy that the label was not pointed out at the time of order.
