Samsung announced the new S22 lineup in February and presented the three models, The Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra. The Samsung S22 is the regular one in this lineup and competes with the iPhone 13 and the Pixel 6. While it does struggle to keep on par at some places, there are instances where it does overtake the others. There are 2 variants: 8GB RAM with 128 GB of Storage and 8GB RAM with 256 GB of Storage which weighs 167 g.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Processor
The Samsung S22 ship with the Qualcomm 8 Gen 1 chips in India. It comes with One UI 4.1 from the factory and promises 4 Android updates and 5 years of security updates. Combining provides the best Android experience. It outperforms the Pixel 6. But we do feel a lack of RAM during circumstances where the iPhone 13 overtakes the S22. The 5G wave bandwidth is what Samsung concentrates on, and, overtakes all others in this segment.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Battery
The Samsung S22 ships with a 3700 mAh battery, less than the 4000 mAh on the predecessor S21. But it does not perform badly. The 3700 mAh gives output to 14 hours of continuous usage, which is enough to last for a whole day. It supports 25W Fast Charging and charges from 0% to 100% in about an hour and a half and supports 15W Wireless Charging and Reverse Wireless Charging.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 has 6.1-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED 120 Hz Display. The hole punch display has got thin bezels and does a good job of resisting fingerprints. It is very user-friendly as it fits in the palm and does not look out of place. The 120 Hz panel goes all the way down to 48 Hz for conserving battery life. The brightness of this phone is the best in its segment with 1300 nits.
Samsung Galaxy S22 and the S22 Plus have the same cameras: A 50 MP primary camera with OIS, a 10 MP telephoto camera with 3X optical zoom and OIS, and a 12 MP Ultra – Wide – Angle Camera with a 120-degree field of view. The selfie camera houses a 10 MP hole punch sensor. Videos look the best when recorded at 1080p or 4k. 8k videos look a bit laggy. The Selfie Camera is average.
