Samsung Galaxy S22 Price & Accessibility Review:
Since the beginning of its sales in February, the Galaxy S22 can be found on all major wireless carriers, as well as on many virtual networks such as Google Fi, Xfinity Mobile, and even Visible.
Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy have also been said to sell the Galaxy S22 cell phones, which can be purchased in stores.
Most of the phones can also be purchased on the Samsung.com website. The Galaxy S22 has 4 colors unique to Samsung.
The base model of the Galaxy S22 is priced at 799 and comes with 128 GB of memory. You can increase it to 50 GB to get an additional 256 GB.
(For this review, we chose the Galaxy S22, which has a capacity of 256 GB. The best Galaxy S22 deals can help reduce this price, but you can often replace your current phone or subscribe to an unlimited data plan (or both) for significant savings.
Once you have succeeded in getting your Samsung Galaxy S22 you can check out the list of hidden Samsung Galaxy features.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Design Review
Unlike the polycarbonate back for the Galaxy S21, the Galaxy S22 has a material update with an aluminum band in the middle and a glass back made of Gorilla Glass Victus Plus.
This should strengthen the durability, although falling glass of any kind on hard surfaces can have disastrous consequences – you may want to purchase one of the best Galaxy S22 cases to protect your new phone.
At least thanks to the new material, the Galaxy S22 looks more like an updated phone than a plastic Galaxy S21FE, available for $100 or below.
The colours of the Galaxy S22 have the same options as the Galaxy S22plus: Phantom Black, Phantom white, Pink, Gold and Green. If you order directly from Samsung, you can also choose from Graphite, Cream, Sky blue and Purple(violet) options.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Camera Review
In Galaxy S22 same basic camera setup as Samsung Galaxy S21, but with some notable improvements especially in hardware features.
The main camera is now rated at 50 MP for 12 MP wide-angle shooter used in Galaxy S21.
The sensor is also 23% larger to allow more light, such as Samsung aims to improve the camera’s performance in low light conditions.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Performance Review
Samsung’s phones are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the U.S, this same chipset is found in other S22 models.
Whereas in other parts of the world, Samsung uses its own Exynos 2200 chipset, though the Galaxy S22 Plus in the U.S benchmark indicates similar performance regardless of the silicon.
This, however, is better as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powers some of the best performance we’ve seen from an Android phone.
In Geekbench 5, which measures overall performance, the US version of the Galaxy S22 presented single-core and multi-core scores of 1204 and 3348, respectively.
It is better than Pixel 6 which is powered by Tensor and its results are 1029 and 2696 in the same tests.
The One plus 10 Pro, released after the launch of the Galaxy S22, outperforms the Samsung phone in the Geekbench 5 multi-core test with a score of 3482, but OnePlus tends to pack its phones with RAM.
This of course cannot be compared with Apple’s mobile silicon which remains the better performer with the iPhone 13 having a 1,684 single-core score and a 4,129 multicore result, blowing the Galaxy S22 away on Geekbench.
In graphics testing the Galaxy S22 produced a 60 FPS result in 3DMark’s Wild Life Unlimited test.
This beats iPhone 13’s FPS result.
Galaxy S22 supports 5G and is capable of connecting to the mmWave and sub-6GHz networks.
The Galaxy S22 uses the Snapdragon X65 modem, which is Qualcomm’s high-end modem until the X70 is dispatched at the end of the year 2022.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Battery life & Charging Review
In this year’s model, there is a drop in battery life from 4000mAh in Galaxy S21 to 3700mAh.
This of course can get you through the day. Although Apple’s iPhone 13 is said to last longer
The Galaxy S22plus is said to be faster in charging as it supports a 45w wired charging while the Galaxy S22 supports a 25w charging.
After testing the Galaxy S22 it was discovered that when drained it takes about half an hour to get to 60% while the S22 Plus gets to 70% at the same time even though with a bigger battery of about 5000mAh.
This, however, is faster than iPhone 13 which gets to 60% in half an hour.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Software & Special Features Review
The Samsung Galaxy houses some Software and special features, which include:
- Samsung’s One UI 4.1 interface for Android 12
- Customization and privacy features
- Live sharing feature in Google Duo: Lets you view photos and take notes with the people on a video call
- Increased software support
- High-Performance fingerprint sensor
The best thing I think you should look out for in the Galaxy S22 is the price and value it has to offer to get a premium smartphone.
