A Samsung Galaxy S22 Review: The Final Verdict

Published

on

This year’s S22 lineup features three models and it is the Galaxy S22 that arguably offers the best value. It may not have all of the premium features of the Ultra or the larger screen of the Plus, but it packs an incredible punch within its 6.1-inch (155 mm) screen.

If you are wondering if the S22 is a worthy investment, this blog post is for you. In this Samsung Galaxy S22 review, we will give an honest breakdown of the phone’s strengths, weaknesses, and specs. Let’s get started.

What We Love About the S22

The S22 is the most affordable Galaxy model, currently available for less than $800. Its small size (compared to the 6.8-inch Ultra and the 6.6-inch Plus) means the phone is perfect for smaller hands and easily fits in pockets and bags without adding too much bulk.

There are upgrades in terms of the materials used compared to the S21, with a glass back made from Gorilla Glass Victus Plus and an aluminum band around the middle. In terms of durability, the S22 comes up trumps, though we always recommend considering a case. You can find S22 plus cases here.

The bright and colorful display is another plus with the S22. 1,300-nit peak brightness is less than the other models in the lineup, though it still provides for an excellent scrolling/watching experience.

The camera is capable of high-quality low-light photos and features an improved zoom. The S22’s main camera has a 50MP rating, which is an upgrade 12MP wide-angle shooter in the S21.

Overall, performance with the S22 is excellent. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset packs a punch and everyday tasks will feel super fast and smooth.

What We Don’t Love About the S22

While we have spoken up the camera on the S22, the reality is that it still trails what is available on similarly priced models such as the iPhone 13 and the Pixel 6. The iPhone 13, for example, takes photos with more realistic colors and better balance.

Another issue that we didn’t love about the S22 is the battery life, which is below average. The 3,700 mAh battery is smaller than the 4,000 mAh power pack on the S21.

Unfortunately, this change has proved to be at least a slight miscalculation by Samsung. That said, for average Android cellphone users, the S22 will get through a full day of normal use before it needs a charge.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Review: The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that the Samsung S22, while not a huge leap forward, is a solid step in the right direction. For lovers of smaller phones, the S22 is a winner. If you can overlook the weakened battery life, the S22 may just well be the perfect phone for you in 2022 and beyond.
