Galaxy Price Cut by $270 After 2 Mths

Evolution of Samsung Smartphones

In the early stages of smartphones, many manufacturers were quite open-minded and introduced attractive features like removable batteries and styluses. Some even created modular phones, leading to a diverse range of smartphone designs. However, things have changed now, and the appearance of smartphones has remained relatively unchanged.


Throughout this evolution, certain designs, such as removable batteries and modular phones, have been abandoned. One design that has persisted is the stylus pen, and Samsung is now the only manufacturer that continues to include a stylus pen as a standard feature in their phones. Samsung is deeply committed to the stylus pen, which was a standard feature in previous Note models. Although the Note series is no longer available, the Ultra models in the Samsung S series have inherited this characteristic, exemplified by the latest Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.


Does the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra have groundbreaking features? While it offers a few, these features alone do not justify its high price tag. The premium pricing is supported by the brand itself—Samsung. In other words, it’s the brand premium. Those willing to invest in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra at a high price point are mostly buying into the Samsung brand rather than solely for its features. Speaking of features, let’s start with the display.


The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra features a 6.8-inch second-generation Dynamic AMOLED display, marking Samsung’s return to flat screens in high-end phones for the first time in recent years. It seems that curved screens have been completely abandoned by Samsung. Phone design is indeed cyclical, as flat screens have now become the target pursued by major phone manufacturers, including domestic brands. The quality of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s display is superb, considered top-notch in the industry, offering features like 2K resolution, 1-120Hz LTPO adaptive high refresh rate, super high peak brightness, and a high screen-to-body ratio.


In terms of photography, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is equipped with a 200-megapixel wide-angle main camera, a 50-megapixel telephoto lens, a 10-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. Each rear camera lens is at the flagship level. The previous 10x optical zoom has been changed to 5x, which may seem like a step back, but in reality, the 5x zoom is more practical and can be seen as an improvement. With a battery capacity of 5000mAh, battery life is not a concern, especially considering that the power consumption of the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 chip has significantly reduced compared to its predecessor, although charging speed is not Samsung’s strong suit.


Perhaps inspired by Apple’s titanium metal trend, Samsung has also decided to use titanium metal on the new Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, upgrading the metal frame and making the edges even more straight compared to the previous generation. Core features also include IP68 dust and water resistance, as well as the SPen stylus. The overall design is not exaggerated, with minor changes compared to the previous generation, yet it remains visually appealing and exudes a premium feel.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has already started to see price cuts, currently reduced by $270, which is quite rare considering this model has only been on the market for 2 months.
