The Samsung Galaxy S22 is the latest addition to the flagship family of devices. It offers an incremental upgrade over its predecessor, without a lot of unnecessary bells and whistles. Without getting too deep into our hands-on experience with this phone, what do you think? Is it worth your time and money?
The “samsung galaxy s22 ultra” is a new smartphone from Samsung that comes with a 5.8-inch display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The device has an 18MP rear camera and 8MP front camera.
Only the Ultra has substantial differences from the rest of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series, with it being more of a Note than a Series – which you can read more about here. But, as you may know, the Samsung Galaxy S22 hasn’t changed all that much, and we’ve had our hands on with it.

In terms of appearances, not much has changed.
When you first glance at it, you’ll note that the S22 follows the same design concept as the S8 and S9, with the phone seeming similar to its predecessor. The phone’s rear features the same matte appearance as the front, with polished metal rails on the sides. But don’t be fooled by the appearances; the phone has altered in terms of feel.
It now has a considerably flatter back, albeit the camera hump prevents it from resting flat on the table. The rails are a lot flatter, but not quite as flat as an iPhone’s. The front display is also flatter than the previous model.
This is my first time purchasing a Qualcomm processor (in Malaysia)
Depending on how you look at the Samsung Galaxy S22, this is the first time the entire S Series is powered by Qualcomm’s offering rather than Samsung’s own in-house solution, the Exynos 2200, which is what I really wanted to see in person – to witness the first collaboration between them and AMD in the GPU department. Unfortunately, owing to unknown reasons, we will not be receiving it.
The S22 loses out on a lot of the wonderful features that the S22+ has.
We’ve seen how the smaller brothers share many of the same traits as their larger brethren throughout time. However, this is changing, since the smaller phone now lacks a number of capabilities. The Samsung Galaxy S22 lacks several of the features seen on the S22+, such as 45W Fast Charging, certain feature omissions, and we’re not sure whether the S22 will receive UWB this year. However, it seems that it does not, which makes it a sad phone.
S22 improves the S21 FE’s appearance.
Getting the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE over the S22 seems like a better decision, considering that it offers a similar experience and was released the same year. We won’t say much since we just had some hands-on time and didn’t get a thorough experience. However, without the S Pen, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is more akin to the Ultra in terms of experience.
