On January 17, 2024, Samsung captivated the world of technology by announcing the launch of its latest flagships including the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus. Packed with impressive specs and innovative features, both devices promise to set new standards in the smartphone space. With an official release date set for January 24, 2024, these revolutionary phones, which obviously have similarities, are already attracting the interest of Samsung Galaxy fans who are wondering what could possibly make them different. Only a careful examination of the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus will allow us to know.

Design and resistance

High quality construction

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S24 are built with high-quality materials, such as Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the front and back, as well as an aluminum frame, giving them both elegant design and great durability. Additionally, they are IP68 certified, meaning they are dust and water resistant up to 1.5m for 30 minutes.

The choice between size and ease of handling

If the two phones have a similar construction, it is in the dimensions that we note the difference. The Galaxy S24 Plus is larger and heavier, with dimensions of 158.5 x 75.9 x 7.7 mm and a weight of 196g to 197g, while the Galaxy S24 is more compact and lighter, with dimensions of 147 x 70.6 x 7.6 mm and a weight of 167 g to 168 g, thus offering a lighter grip.

The two phones are then as resistant and durable as each other but the lightness of the Galaxy S24 allows it to be easier to handle with one hand.

Display and visual experience

Excellent technology for multimedia

Even if the Galaxy S24 Plus and the Galaxy S24 have screens with the same Dynamic LTPO AMOLED 2X HDR10+ technology, the same refresh rate of 120 Hz and the same brightness of 2600 nits, this is one of the points on which we also note differences in dimensions.


With this high-quality technology and great brightness, both smartphones make an excellent choice for media consumption, gaming and productivity thanks to a high-quality display

Larger image projection for the Galaxy S24 Plus

The Galaxy S24 Plus features a 6.7-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, offering a pixel density of approximately 513 ppi. In contrast, the Galaxy S24 features a smaller 6.2-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, with a lower pixel density of 416 ppi.

But due to its larger size and resolution, the Galaxy S24 Plus can project images on a larger scale for a more immersive viewing experience

Performance and memory

Artificial Intelligence-oriented processors

Both phones are powered by powerful processors:

The Qualcomm SM8650-AC Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for the United States, Canada and China. This has a reputation for being a Titan of AI and therefore making phones smarter.

The Exynos 2400 for international markets. Samsung’s new chipset whose manufacturer promises a 1.7x improvement in CPU performance and a 14.7x increase in AI processing capability compared to the Exynos 2200.

These processors deliver peak performance and power efficiency, ensuring a smooth and responsive user experience.

RAM and Internal Storage


The Galaxy S24 is available in configurations of 128 to 512 GB of storage with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. While the Galaxy S24 Plus offers less memory options from 256 to 512 GB with 12 GB of RAM. Both phones support UFS 4.0 technology, delivering fast read and write speeds to meet the needs of even the most demanding users.

The Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus share features like powerful processors and generous memory options with fast read and write speeds. However, the Galaxy S24 features more varied storage options.

Camera and multimedia

Advanced features for photography and video

The Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus are equipped with a camera system including a 50 MP main sensor, a 10 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a 12 MP ultra-wide lens, offering advanced capabilities such as 8K video recording, optical image stabilization (OIS) and Super Steady mode for smooth videos.

Coming to their front cameras, both phones offer 12 MP with advanced features for selfies and video calling, such as dual video calling, Auto-HDR, and support for 4K video recording.


Photography and videoconferencing enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the Samsung Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus.

Audio quality

Battery and power

Autonomy

The Galaxy S24 is equipped with a 4000 mAh Li-Ion battery. While the Galaxy S24 Plus carries a more powerful 4900mAh battery. This difference in power allows the S24 Plus to have better autonomy, even if the two devices have the same energy consumption due to the fact that they are powered by the same processor.

Fast charging: continuous power even on the go

The Galaxy S24 comes with 25W wired charging, with the ability to reach 50% charge in just 30 minutes. The Galaxy S24 Plus’s fast charging technology is more efficient. It consists of 45W wired charging, with the ability to reach 65% charging in the same time.

However, both devices feature 15W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging, providing convenient options for staying powered on the go.

Price of Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus

Both the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus are top-tier smartphones. Their prices reflect this because the Galaxy S24 is offered at a starting price of €899.00, while the Galaxy S24 Plus is available from €1,149.00.

Ultimately

For people looking for a more compact and easy-to-handle phone, the Galaxy S24 could be an ideal choice. Its slightly lower price also makes it an attractive option. On the other hand, for users who favor a large screen and extended battery life, the Galaxy S24 Plus could better meet their needs, despite its higher price.
