Samsung Phone Sizes Compared (All Major Models)
Samsung’s two most popular phone lines are its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note range. For this reason, let’s take a look at how the last few generations of Galaxy Note and Galaxy S phones compare, with respect to display size and dimensions.
However, Samsung’s most popular phones – with respect to sales – are its cheaper models like its Galaxy A and M series phones.
These phones deliver great design, very impressive specs, solid cameras, and gorgeous screens for A LOT less than Samsung’s flagship models.
As you will see below, Samsung’s phones have grown in stature over the years, adding in larger displays which, in turn, has made the phones themselves larger.
However, it is worth noting that growth in the actual size of Samsung phones over the years is only very slight.
And the reason for this is that Samsung is now cramming way more screen into much smaller spaces, as you can see below.

Samsung Galaxy S23
The Samsung Galaxy S23 was announced in February 2023 and released later that same month. This smartphone features a sleek design, with a glass front and back protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 and an aluminum frame with armor that provides extra drop and scratch resistance.
It also comes with an IP68 rating, which means it is dust and water-resistant up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.
The phone’s display is a Dynamic AMOLED 2X with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels.
The screen size is 6.1 inches, with a screen-to-body ratio of approximately 86.8%, making it the smallest model in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 range.
The phone runs on Android 13, with One UI 5.1, and is powered by a Qualcomm SM8550-AC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (4 nm) chipset, an octa-core CPU with a mix of Cortex-X3, Cortex-A715, Cortex-A710, and Cortex-A510 cores, and an Adreno 740 GPU.

What About Samsung’s Foldable Phones?
Samsung also makes a range of foldable Android phones too. But how are they different in terms of screen size and overall dimensions? Here’s a handy table that outlines the different sizes for Samsung’s foldable phones.
|Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4||7.6 inches (unfolded)||Unfolded: 155.1 x 130.1 x 6.3 mm|
Folded: 155.1 x 67.1 x 14.2-15.8 mm
|Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3||7.6 inches (unfolded)||Unfolded: 158.2 x 128.1 x 6.4 mm|

As you can see, the “flagship” model Galaxy Z Fold 4 is currently the biggest foldable phone that Samsung makes; it has a 7.6in Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X with a 120Hz refresh rate and native HDR10+ support.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is also, currently, the most expensive phone that Samsung makes – it costs a bomb, although it is slightly cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
But it is a very cool-looking phone and one that isn’t used or owned by too many people, so if you want to stand out from the crowd (and your wallet can handle it), the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is just about as unique as it gets right now.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 runs on a Snapdragon CPU, packs in 12GB of RAM and is available with either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. You do not get SD support, sadly, but the phone is 5G-ready and has an impressive array of cameras on its rear:

It delivers heaps of performance, has excellent battery life, and it runs like a dream. If you can handle the price, this is the phone to get in 2023…
- The Camera is utterly amazing – zoom capabilties are off the charts.
- Masses of power and performance
- Base model comes with 256GB of storage
- Faster charging (45W)
- One UI software is superb
- Runs rings around the competition
