Is it worth getting the S24?
If you’re upgrading from the S23 to the S24, it might not be worth it unless you’re searching to have a faster SnapDragon 8 Gen 3 chip for things such as Google AI, faster gaming processes, and better battery life.
However, if you’re upgrading from an older Samsung Galaxy model, consider getting the S24! You’ll experience a major boost in performance, camera quality, display vibrancy, and overall features.
