Format of the Samsung Galaxy S22
- There were relatively minor changes from the previous model.
- Available in a variety of stylish colour combinations
- Equipped with a sturdy, back-lit glass panel
Samsung did not want to deviate too much from last year’s Galaxy S21 design, but there are two notable changes. The Galaxy S22 features a 6.1-inch screen, making it smaller than the S21 (by 0.1 inches), but this is unlikely to be an issue for most users. The switch from last year’s plastic back to this year’s Gorilla Glass Victus Plus is immediately apparent.
Indicator for the Samsung Galaxy S22
- Smaller than the S21’s screen, at 6.1 inches
- Includes a 120Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 2340 x 1080.
- Visually stunning presentation
Samsung carved out a little circle from the screen for the 10MP selfie camera. It didn’t bother us at all, even during marathon sessions of PUBG Mobile. This display has the highest possible brightness and visual appeal. Due to the variable refresh rate (10Hz to 120Hz), scrolling, films, and games, all appear fluid and responsive. You can lock the refresh rate at 60Hz if you’re concerned about battery life or at 120Hz if you don’t care about that at all.
Photographic Equipment: Samsung Galaxy S22
- 50-megapixel primary, 12-megapixel ultrawide, and 10-megapixel telephoto lens
- 10-Megapixel Self-Capture Camera
- Options galore for Samsung cameras
Samsung has shaken things up a bit with the Samsung Galaxy S22, despite its superficial similarities to the S21 (including the S21’s contour-cut camera array). While three lenses remain, several of the sensors supporting them have been updated. As before, the 12MP ultrawide f/2.2 camera is joined by the new 50MP f/1.8 primary camera and the 10MP f/2.3 telephoto.
Despite having far fewer pixels than the S21’s 64MP sensor, the final camera’s zoom remains the same at 3x (the S21 listed the zoom as a hybrid; this is optical zoom). Even if the S22 Ultra’s 100x Space Zoom is impressive, you can still have a pleasant time with the digital zoom of up to 30x. Even still, it’s great to have a phone with a 3x optical zoom that costs less than $800.
Power reserve of the Samsung Galaxy S22
- The battery capacity is 3,700 mAh, 300 mAh less than before.
- A USB-C connection, but no wall plug, is supplied.
- Quickly charges at 25W and is compatible with wireless charging.
Not much has changed despite Samsung reducing the Galaxy S22’s battery capacity by 300 mAh (from 4,000 mAh on the S21 to 3,700 mAh here). Our testing showed that the battery lasted for about 12 hours under varying but consistent conditions. Your results may vary. The only accessory included with the phone is a USB-C cord, although it can be charged with any 25W converter or wirelessly using a Qi adaptor.
The Bottom Line
Regarding true Android flagships, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 phones are currently your only option in the US, as they are the only ones now available with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU and an X65 modem. Similarly, the OnePlus 10 Pro with comparable specifications may soon be released. Samsung is expected to release the Flip and the Fold with cutting-edge hardware this fall, and Motorola may have something cooking. However, unless their position is challenged, the S22 phones are unrivalled.
