Samsung is set to launch its flagship smartphone, Galaxy S23 Ultra at its ‘Unpacked’ event tomorrow. Samsung’s S series is believed by many to be the best that Android has to offer, and if the rumours are anything to go by, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will easily fly past its competition. The smartphone is expected to come with a quad-camera setup with a 200-megapixel primary shooter. It will also be powered by the newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. If you’re planning on buying it on launch, here are the top 10 apps you should download first on your new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

With a massive 6.8-inch display, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is one of the biggest phones around. While big phones are certainly the norm when it comes to flagship products, some users may find it hard to use them with one hand. Reaching the top edges of the phone with your thumb without registering an accidental touch can be a tough ask at times. Quick Cursor solves this problem by offering one-handed accessibility with the help of a computer-like cursor. All you need to do is swipe from one edge of the screen and use the tracker to access contents on the farther end of the screen.
You’ve probably already heard about the S23 Ultra’s impressive 200MP primary rear lens. Some users may be getting the smartphone for the cameras alone. While we’re still awaiting what the 200MP camera is capable of doing, we’re pretty certain you’d want a great photo editing app to along with it. Google’s Snapseed app offers a wide array of photo editing tools that give you greater control over the final product. The app’s interface makes it easy to navigate and the tools are very accessible to the average photography enthusiast.
Material Notes: Colourful Notes
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a stylus that works pretty well for taking notes, among other things. While the native Samsung Notes app works fine to jot down a quick note, Material Notes takes the entire experience one level higher. You can choose a colour theme for your note and even stick it to the home screen and protect it with a pin. Material Notes offers a very pleasant interface and extensive options to customise your notes. This includes multiple font options and different colour themes. Easily one of the top 10 apps for your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
The stylus on your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can be used for more than just taking notes. The pen offers a very low latency which makes it ideal for amateur and professional digital artists. If you dont want to carry your tablet around everywhere, you can always use your S23 Ultra to bring a sketch idea to life. The Sketchbook app is very popular among artists and offers a wide range of tools for you to play with. These include a wide range of highly customisable brushes, guides, rulers, and stroke tools.
If you’re not using your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to run some high-end games then you’re really letting its potential go to waste. The S23 Ultra is powered by the newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, and it has now been confirmed that the European version of the phone will be equipped with this processor as well. Previously, Samsung used its own Exynos process for the European variants of the S22 series. The S8G2 SoC has already been garnering high praise for its excellent performance and high benchmark scores. What better way to test its limits than playing the graphically demanding Apex Legends? This FPS game offers legendary character-based gameplay, best-in-class squad battles, and fast-paced combat.
Pocket: Read. Save. Grow.
If you like to read while on the go, there is no app we would suggest more than Pocket. Pocket makes it incredibly easy to save articles, blogs, news items, videos, and other web content so you can view them later. The app offers a very clean and clutter-free reading experience. Don’t have the time to read an engrossing article you came across online? Save it on Pocket and read it while you’re commuting to work. You’d be surprised at the versatility of this app and the different formats it can save. You can even save Twitter threads on Pocket and read them whenever you want.
Universal Copy is another nifty app that is very easy to incorporate into your daily usage. Ever wanted to copy a caption on Instagram but couldn’t? That’s because certain apps don’t allow users to copy the text on their platform. You can easily bypass this problem by using the Universal Copy app. You don’t even need to launch this app every time you need to copy something. Just give it the necessary permissions and simply turn on the Universal Copy mode from your S23 Ultra’s notification bar.
Zedge lets you download full HD and 4K wallpapers for your smartphone. The app contains a large library of eye-catching wallpapers and themes that bring the best out of your phone. This is a must-have app for people who love to customise their smartphones. On top of wallpapers, the Zedge app also offers free ringtones, alarm tones, and stickers.
If you’re interested in astronomy or just stargazing in general, Stellarium is one app you should have on your smartphone. If the name Stellarium sounds familiar, it’s because it is already a massively popular open-source astronomy software for desktops. The smartphone app is just as good. Stellarium uses GPS to map out the sky above your current location and gives you detailed information about all the celestial objects in the night sky. You can use the free version of the app to overlay information on the night sky using AR. The Stellarium Plus app is also capable of controlling the scope of a telescope.
Manual Camera: DSLR Camera Pro
If you want to unlock the true potential of the 200MP lens on your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, we highly recommend the Manual Camera app. While the Pro version costs Rs 330, there is also a ‘Lite’ version you can download for free on the Google Play Store. Manual Camera gives you total control over the raw power of your phone’s camera. You can control the ISO, shutter speed, exposure, and manual focus of the camera, among other things. If you’re a professional photographer or even an enthusiast, we believe the features offered by this app justify its price tag.
