We can understand why you wouldn’t miss the S23 Ultra’s curved panel. Curved screens have come a long way in terms of palm rejection, but accidental touches are still a concern. Then there’s the fact that the wraparound nature of these screens means you’re at an increased risk of a cracked display if you drop the device.

Content can look a little warped on the edges of a curved display, while typing can be an issue too if the letters of a virtual keyboard spill over onto the curves. It’s also worth noting that curved screens aren’t ideal for applying screen protectors.

Then again, there are reasons to miss a curved screen. Some people might just find them more aesthetically pleasing, for one. I’m also of the opinion that gesture controls are a more pleasant, satisfying experience on a curved display. Colleague Rob Triggs also reckoned that large phones feel better with a subtly curved screen.
