About Samsung’s Galaxy S22

If you think it’s hard to keep up with Samsung Galaxy’s releases, you aren’t alone. Although Samsung just released the S21 in 2021, sales were lackluster, so they decided to drop the Galaxy S22 at the top of this year. This newest drop comes in three different versions – the standard S22, S22 Plus, and the headliner, the S22 Ultra which is reminiscent of the wildly popular Galaxy Note. So, what’s new in the world of the Galaxy? With the S22 and S22 Plus due to hit the market on February 25th, let’s take a quick look under the hood.

What’s different about the S22?

The design of the S22 is more refined with symmetrical bezels, a flat screen, and Gorilla Glass Victus Plus covering the front and back. In terms of performance, the S22 and S22 Plus are a lot better than their predecessors, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU is still lacking in comparison to competitors’ chips. While there is some improvement as compared to the phones from last year, there is still work to be done in this area. Quality and consistency of Samsung Galaxy phones has not changed, and there’s another reason to celebrate – four years of Android software upgrades to enhance the overall experience.

Colors are available in Pink Gold, Phantom White, Green, and Phantom Black, with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1 TB of storage. There are also exclusive colors for the S22 and S22+ which include Cream, Violet, Sky Blue, and Graphite. The S22 Ultra comes in Black Matte, White Matte, Pine Green, and Burgundy. Exclusive colors on Samsung.com for this model include Graphite, Red, and Sky Blue.

Galaxy S22 Ultra

It’s no secret Samsung has a stellar reputation for their displays, and the Galaxy S22 does not disappoint. Standing at 6.8 inches, the Ultra steps in, replacing the note. The included S Pen has the usual features like notes on the screen, special menus, and more, along with the smoothest, crisp writing experience offered on any S Pen. For Note users that have missed the features and convenience of the S Pen, Samsung delivers.

The dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with Quad HD+ resolution provides a viewing experience that totally immerses you. The 120Hz refresh rate keeps things moving while the effortless reaction from touch demonstrates why they chose 240 Hz to deliver. Peak brightness is 1,750 nits which blows away the competition.

Multitasking tools to make things better

Samsung really shines in this category, with preinstalled software tools to help with productivity and functionality. Split screen support, Edge menus, App Pairs, and app windows make things easy.

The camera is still superb

Samsung’s Space Zoom has blown away the competition for a few years. There is 12MP ultrawide camera, 108MP main lens, 10MP telephoto with 3X optical zoom, and a 10MP telephoto with 10X optical zoom. Samsung’s devices can zoom in much farther than other phones. On the S22 Ultra, the phone can achieve up to 100x zoom. For those who use their camera for really close projects and pictures, this is a winner.

If you’re comparing the three, the S22 Ultra is a workhorse. The S22 and S22+ don’t have any standout features that differ too much from the S21 series, which makes them a little lackluster in comparison. The S22 Ultra may have some heating issues to look out for as well, but overall, it stands on its own.
