The Samsung Galaxy S22 is small, fast, and offers a clean and reliable Android experience. It’s an incremental update that keeps what was good in the S21, and upgrades the camera, processor, and materials to create a solid Android device.
It’s hard to write a Samsung Galaxy S22 review without making reference to its big brother, the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Now there’s a phone with a radical new idea. Okay, it’s an idea borrowed from the Galaxy Note line, but still, the Ultra stands apart from the S22 and S22 Plus. In fact, it makes the Galaxy S22 feel a bit less-than.
But the S22 Ultra is a considerably more expensive phone, so we’d be comparing apples to oranges to an extent. So let’s focus on what makes the Samsung Galaxy S22 such a fun, attractive, and palm-friendly device.
Put simply, the S22 has enough of everything. It pushes no boundaries in terms of photography, screen size, and battery life, yet it still compares favorably to Apple’s $799 / £779 / AU$1,349 iPhone 13.
