I have had my s23 Ultra since 11 days before the device officially launched. Absolutely love it! I only know a couple of people with iPhone 15 Pro Max's so far, but they were motivated to upgrade because of the amazing pictures I share with my friends. If you want the choice between 200MP or 50MP shots that can also be saved in RAW format. The s23 Ultra is your best choice in my opinion. If you can wait until the end of January 2024 though. The s24 series will be available for order and if the cost of those are too high. The s23 series will be on sale.
