New Galaxy S23 Ultra leak compares camera quality with the Pixel 7 Pro

There's a fresh Samsung Galaxy S23 leak to report on: and this time an image purportedly taken with the S23 Ultra has been compared to similar snaps shot on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 7 Pro.

This comes from well-known tipster Ice Universe (via Notebookcheck), who initially posted a series of three zoomed-in pumpkin photos without naming the phones involved, asking for votes as to which of the pictures was the best.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra won the vote, beating out this year's Ultra edition and Google's latest flagship – but you can decide for yourself which you prefer. The shot apparently taken by a Galaxy S23 Ultra phone certainly looks the most detailed and vibrant.

Camera specs

We've previously seen another photo from the same leaker that is supposedly from the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, so it looks as though Ice Universe may have got hold of a unit in advance – the handset isn't expected to launch until February 2023.

That means Samsung still has plenty of time to tweak the photo optimization algorithms on the S23 phones, and make sure that pictures and videos are looking the best that they can possibly be (indeed, this usually carries on after a phone's release too).

We're expecting the Ultra edition of the Galaxy S23 to come with a triple-lens rear camera that's not massively different from the one on the Galaxy S22 Ultra – though there is talk that the low light photo capabilities will be significantly upgraded.


Analysis: cameras keep on improving

The best handsets of 2022 – including the iPhone 14 Pro and the Google Pixel 7 Pro – can take fantastic photos, images of a quality that you would scarcely have believed back when cameras were attached to the back of smartphones for the first time.

However, these cameras just keep on getting better, and that's down to improvements in two areas: the hardware (the actual sensors fitted inside the phones) and the software (how the phone interprets and processes the information it gets from the cameras).

It's Google that's perhaps best known for the way its algorithms can create brilliant-looking snaps even with camera sensors that aren't top end, but other phone makers are busy improving their core code too, including Samsung.

That's why we'll have to reserve judgment on the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera until we can actually test it – the camera specs alone won't tell us the full story, even if the main sensor gets a major bump up to the 100MP mark.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Apple Adds Support for Live Activities to Shazam

Apple today added support for Live Activities in Shazam, its free music discovery and identification app. Shazam's Live Activities keep the user updated when searching for music in the background, which is particularly useful when multitasking or identifying songs in other apps . The last significant update to Shazam arrived in January, allowing users to identify songs from other apps while listening with headphones. Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, and has been gradually bringing the app into closer alignment with ‌ Apple Music ‌ ever since, offering trials to the streaming service through the app and the ability to sync Shazams directly to ‌‌Apple Music‌‌. Shazam can be downloaded from the App Store for free . It can be accessed through the Control Center on ‌‌ iPhone ‌‌ and ‌‌ iPad ‌‌, through ‌ Siri ‌ commands, or on the Mac, as well as via widgets. Version 17.11 of Shazam is now available. Apple opened up its Live Activities API to third-party ‌iPhone‌ apps with the r

Review: Anker's Latest 3-in-1 Power Bank is a Versatile On-the-Go Powerhouse

Popular accessory brand Anker has just launched a new 10K version of its 3-in-1 power bank that offers up to 30 watts of charging power, a convenient display to quickly view exact charge status, an integrated USB-C cable for both input and output, and built-in folding prongs to recharge directly from a power outlet. I've recently been testing one of these Anker power banks out, and it has become a must-have accessory for my gear bag. Competitively priced at $44.99, the 10,000 mAh capacity means I can charge up my iPhone 15 Pro Max more than one and a half times while on the go, which is plenty for a long day out or even a weekend trip where easy access to power might be iffy. And the 30-watt charging speed means it'll charge my devices up quickly, meaning spending less time with my phone awkwardly tethered to a power bank while I'm out and about. A quick charge during a lunch or dinner is more than enough to keep my iPhone topped off for the remainder of the day. Th
