Samsung Galaxy S22

The Samsung Galaxy S22 comes with a flagship 4nm chipset, a three-camera setup on the back that is capable of capturing important memories both day and night, and a long battery life that can last a full day on a single charge. If you want a compact and stylish device, the Galaxy S22 is one of the best devices to get in 2022.

Display

The display on this year’s Samsung Galaxy S22 is a little bit smaller than on last year’s Galaxy S21 series. The display went from 6.2-inches, down to 6.1-inch, which as a result, provides a more comfortable and portable form factor. The display uses a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel that has 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, ranging between 10-120Hz. It also has 240Hz Touch Sampling Rate for an even smoother experience, and the resolution also received a bump at 1080 x 2340. The new panel is brighter and more accurate, and it’s also more enjoyable thanks to further improvements.

The new Samsung Galaxy S22, comes with class-leading specifications, including a flagship chipset, either a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, or Exynos 2200 in select markets. The new chips provide more graphical and computational power than previous devices, and the 8GB of memory, and 128GB storage will ensure that you can store all of your videos and apps on the device.

While the battery has become ever so slightly smaller this year, the Galaxy S22 now supports 25W fast wired charging and 15W wireless. It can still do reverse wireless charging to charge accessories, such as the Galaxy Buds. The camera setup also received several software improvements over the Galaxy S21, and it can capture better photos at both night and daytime.
