Samsung’s Galaxy line of phones remains one of the most popular smartphone lineups on the market. Between the sizable screen, long battery life, and intuitive user interface, it’s easy to see why people love the Galaxy.

Samsung’s newest lineup, the Galaxy S22 family of phones, is already available. So what do reviewers think of the latest flagship phones from the Korean manufacturer?

Design Details

Samsung makes some of the prettiest Android phones money can buy, and the Galaxy S22 is no exception. The new phones boast razor-thin bezels and eye-catching bright screens, making them a stylish addition to anyone’s tech collection. Samsung neatly nestled the front camera at the top of the device, creating a small pinhole in the otherwise full-body screen. 

The rear cameras are distinctive and have a low profile on the handset. Like other recent Galaxy phones, the S22 sports rounded corners and soft edges that make it comfortable in the hand. 

The S22 also bears a delightful glass-and-steel construction that gives it an extremely premium feel. This is a much-needed upgrade over the S21’s tacky plastic back and overall cheaper construction.

Specs and Tech

As you would expect, the S22 is a high-tech powerhouse. It houses a powerful processor that makes short work of productivity tasks, loads images swiftly, and crushes video games like Fortnite or Genshin Impact. The new phone also supports blazingly-fast 45-watt charging (for when those games drain your battery in a few short hours).

The S22 boasts impressive battery life, but it’s still not quite as long as the iPhone 13 line. It also supports ultra-wideband connections and 5G connectivity, making it a state-of-the-art smartphone for those who love cutting-edge technology. 

Camera Array

All new smartphones are only as good as their cameras, and the S22 delivers on that front. It sports an impressive array of lenses, including a 50-megapixel main camera that captures breathtaking photos in 4K definition. Amateur shutterbugs will love the phone’s contrast and detail when they compare photos taken on older devices.

The camera also performs well in low light conditions, though it doesn’t capture sharp images in the dark. The iPhone 13, on the other hand, can take studio-quality photos even in near-lightless conditions.

Bottom Line

The Galaxy S22 is one of the best Android phones on the market. If you’re looking for an upgrade, you can purchase the standard Galaxy S22 for $800, or the S22 Plus for $1,000. The high-end S22 Ultra retails for $1,200.
