Are you planning to upgrade your phone soon, or are you a fan of S Pen model phones? If yes, then we’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ve boiled down into detail the specs and some downsides of switching to the Samsung Galaxy S22 and why you should get this new model.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra differs in design, featuring sharp edges similar to the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. Though most prefer rounded corner phones, the pointed edges make the S22 Ultra stand out in a crowd looking bigger than most large smartphones. It also features metal and glass from Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ with an added Armor Aluminum Frame in between and has an improved design peaking camera lenses and the S Pen storage at the bottom.
Although the Galaxy S22 Ultra has up its game with the built-in S Pen storage, some may not like its curved display. Nonetheless, its Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor is a great feature, allowing convenience in unlocking your phone. It has a 6.8-inch screen with the latest AMOLED panel, 1-120Hz refresh rate, and boasts a brightness level, reaching up to 1,750 nits, so you can easily use your phone no matter how bright it is outdoors.
Since the processor differs in Samsung flagships, Galaxy S22 Ultra with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen or Exynos 2200 will have varying camera quality and battery life. However, it has a powerful Android chip, the One UI 4, offering fast performance. It also comes with 8GB or 12GB RAM, the ideal phone if you’re up for a premium experience. Furthermore, it has an improved S Pen with 70% reduced latency, almost close to writing with a pen and paper.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra uses a 5,000mAh battery like the S20 Ultra and S21 Ultra, which means it can last long with a charging speed of 45w wired, 15w wireless, and 4.5w reverse wireless. However, the S22 Ultra can only last around 13 hours, and the S21 Ultra battery life is up to 15hours, so in terms of battery life, the S21 Ultra is better than the S22 Ultra.
Despite having less battery life than S21 Ultra, the S22 Ultra offers better images, especially in low light. The S22 Ultra offers brighter photos with its improved camera, and it has a 10x zoom, making the images more detailed and vibrant. It also has a night mode, so you don’t have to worry about capturing moments.
