Samsung Galaxy S24

It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve used the Samsung Galaxy S24. When I opened the box for the 1st time, my initial impression was how compact the size is as it can easily fit into my pocket without protruding and this is something very important to me as I am somewhat paranoid about losing stuff in my pockets, especially a phone.

I have the phone in Cobalt Violet which is my favourite of the 3 available, the other 2 being Onyx Black and Marble Gray with 3 other shades available online, i.e. Sandstone Orange, Jade Green and Sapphire Blue. If I were to buy one, I would definitely go for a shade which is unique like Cobalt Violet or Jade Green.

The screen of the S24 is 6.2″ compared to 6.1″ on the S23 and the weight of the S24 is 167g which makes this very light indeed. It’s lighter than the S23 which is 168g. The size of the S24 is ideal for smaller hands like mine. It’s such a comfortable fit in the hand.

It charges very fast as it has a 4000mAh battery which is 100mAh bigger than the previous model. The S24 gives up to 29 hours of video playback and up to 78 hours of audio playback.

The cameras produce super sharp and crisp images

The 3 rear cameras have 50.0 MP + 10.0 MP + 12.0 MP Resolution respectively with Optical Zoom3x, Optical quality Zoom 2x & Digital Zoom up to 30x while the Selfie Camera in front has a Resolution of 12.0 MP. This camera has some serious zoom features.

Of course, with the S24 you no longer need to google for translations into a foreign language as Galaxy AI introduces meaningful intelligence aimed at enhancing every part of life, especially the phone’s most fundamental role: communication. When you need to defy language barriers, Galaxy S24 makes it easier than ever. Chat with another student or colleague from abroad. Book a reservation while on vacation in another country. It’s all possible with Live Translate, two-way, real-time voice and text translations of phone calls within the native app. No third-party apps are required, and on-device AI keeps conversations completely private.

With Interpreter, live conversations can be instantly translated on a split-screen view so people standing opposite each other can read a text transcription of what the other person has said. It even works without cellular data or Wi-Fi.

Galaxy S24 marks a milestone in the history of search as the first phone to debut intuitive, gesture-driven Circle to Search with Google. To give Galaxy users an incredible new tool, Galaxy turned to the worldwide leader of search, Google, and opened up new forms of discovery with a simple gesture. With a long press on the home button, users can circle, highlight, scribble on, or tap anything on Galaxy S24’s screen to see helpful, high-quality search results. Seeing a beautiful landmark in the background of a friend’s social media post or a surprising fun fact on YouTube Shorts can quickly become an accurate search to learn more – without having to leave that app. And depending on a user‘s location, for certain searches, generative AI-powered overviews can provide helpful information and context pulled together from across the web, and users can ask more complex and nuanced questions.

Communication isn’t the only way Galaxy S24 series takes the fundamental benefits of the phone into the future. Online search has transformed nearly every aspect of life. Galaxy S24 marks a milestone in the history of search as the first phone to debut intuitive, gesture-driven Circle to Search with Google.

After great shots are captured, innovative Galaxy AI editing tools enable simple edits like erase, re-compose, and remaster. For easier and more efficient optimizations, Edit Suggestion uses Galaxy AI to suggest perfectly suitable tweaks for each photo. To give users even more creative control and freedom, Generative Edit can fill in parts of an image background with generative AI. When a picture is crooked, AI will fill in the borders. When an object needs to be slightly moved to be in the perfect position, AI lets users adjust the position of the subject and generates a perfectly blended background in its original spot. Anytime Galaxy S24 deploys generative AI to amplify an image, a watermark will appear on the image and in metadata. And if an action-packed video needs to be slowed down, new Instant Slow-mo can generate additional frames based on movements to smoothly slow down action-packed moments for a more detailed look.

Having used the S24 for over a couple of weeks now, I do like the phone a lot mostly thanks to its size (so easy and nice to hold) as well as high quality images be it in very sunny outdoors or darker condition indoors.
