Galaxy S22 Review : The iPhone of Android! - Galaxy User Guide

Also, what do the early 2000s, San Antonio spurs and the current day phoenix suns and galaxy 22 series all have in common... they are all drama-free they are, all kind of a bit boring and all quietly really good. So those spurs were really just a one-trick pony of being more athletic or dunking all over people or just shooting tons of three-pointers or any of the things that a casual fan would immediately appreciate. Just good, solid fundamentals: ball movement, high percentage shots and sharing the load same thing with the phoenix suns of today. They don't necessarily have one huge standout, mvp superstar, but is really good and there aren't really any weaknesses and they're quietly the number one team in basketball.

So I appreciate that you know what you're getting with a samsung flagship now just a little bit smaller and a little more squared off along the back - it's that little spot where your finger rests under the camera bump - but I got used to that pretty quickly, but we all expect an ip68 waterproof phone, solid speakers, clicky buttons, the best ultrasonic fingerprint reader in the game, a nice satin finish - you know not all these things can be said about So I talk about in the hand, feel all the time, but samsung made both of these phones.

Obviously it sounds crazy to say that about a phone that still has a six inch screen, but the fact that I'm coming from bigger phones with the flat sides and the tiny, symmetrical bezels and the corner to corner display combined It might just hold that lead in February right now, but speaking of displays, that's one thing that we definitely know. It was a bit of confusion around them this year, so let's clear up that, so both the s22 and s22 plus have flat 1080p 120 hertz adaptive ammo led panels. Although the peak brightness on the larger phones and also ultra is crazy bright, like you can see it in direct sunlight it is awesome, but there was a question whether these were ltpo displays or not.

So that is a new technology that allows you to modulate the display refresh rate to 10 hertz to save battery power. So I'd ask samsung- and I mentioned this in the video - that they told me that these are not ltpo displays but at the same time on the specifications sheet. So they clarified that data transfer rates to the display can go as low as 10 hertz but the display is still faster, so they updated their site to reflect the widely recognized industry standard of the actual refresh rate huh. It's almost like some other companies lie to people by expressing things in other non-standard ways. So, it is not the full variable refresh rate range of ltpo2 as we have on the ultra which is a bit of a disadvantage, to an 800 to a thousand dollar phone.

In this adaptive mode it's a bright, responsive display, but aside from that, that's what really matters to me. The only possible downside with this screen would be battery life and on top of that the only concern for me at going into reviewing these phones was battery life because number one both phones are smaller and so both of them have a 300 milliamp hour smaller battery than last year and number two the new snapdragon 8 gen 1 chip had some concerns about it. It is obviously brand new and is supposed to be very efficient, but it also seems to be geared to be a very high-end chip, with very high performance.

So it performs really well, puts great numbers on benchmarks better than previous chips and crushes gaming, but it runs a little hot, and if there's a reason, almost every flagship you see coming out with this new chip has also a huge section in their presentation about their new massive super innovative new cooling solution. The larger batteries are likely to do more with no ltpo and a potentially higher power chip. I was a little worried about battery life on these phones turned out to be fine, not amazing, not like headline making, but San Antonio spurs, boring levels good. Now, if I did a lot of high brightness navigation and game big power draw stuff, I could take big chunks of this battery quickly.

It is now a more efficient four nanometer process node so it does really well in standby, but you can absolutely burn through it with heavy use. Now it doesn't come with it, so it's 50 bucks more to get that 45 watt charger. It's a subtle one but the vibration motor is real, so the haptics are still really good and really strong and clicky and responsive, and I love that. It doesn't sound like it makes a huge difference, but that is a difference in the direction of the pulsing of the motor, which makes it a lot less strong in my pocket and on a table for feeling vibrations.

However, you can still feel the vibrations really well and turn the vibration intensity up to the high, but the direction is different, not sure why maybe space savings but it's real - the most exciting potential superstar upgrade on these phones - is the cameras. The s22 would have a major camera upgrade like the Golden State Warriors 2016 signing of Kevin durant, making them the clear top favorite right now. It gives you pretty much any normal lighting situation and handles it really well. With processing they have hit their stride, that isn't too overly sharp or too saturated.

The ultra-wide is definitely softer than the main camera, but does indeed use lots of light and the telephoto is rock solid, no hdr halo problems and pictures, no white balance, inconsistency, problems, no auto focus issues and pretty minimal shutter lag. It's boring just tim duncan with the bank shot just solid. Also I gotta say I love that it no longer punches into 3x when I shoot 8k video on the phone. I know ak video is not the most popular feature but the last time was the telephoto. If I wanted to support the last three snapdragon chips, video is 8k with 30fps video- and I know you know that 8k is supposed to be a super high end cinematic feature, but at least buried in the settings.

There are way more software improvements with these cameras, like Night Photography, which samsung call knightography because they need to name everything for some reason, but that's for better detail and night shots and Ai stereo portrait mode improvements for better cutouts and space. In the s22 ultra review I'm going to talk about all this camera stuff way more.

The video that's coming soon, definitely make sure you subscribe to see that one when it comes out but I wanted to talk about its default status which you know, but outside of the tech community we have heard people calling it like iPhones and galaxies just like they've been so dominant here anyway, that it's kind of already understood but now more than ever, it's sort of solidified itself as the default android phone uh, which is crazy. Now, I used to work on Samsung's software as it was incredibly clunky and weighted down with bloatware, being like a cartoon skin on top of android while pure google experience was from a Nexus or a pixel or even a lightweight skin from Motorola or oneplus. But now that the oxygen os has gone downhill and the pixels are a buggy mess.

The one Ui from Samsung has quickly evolved into one of the best, stable and feature-packed android experiences out there. They loop when it is good in google stuff, like having a google page next to your home screen and the new material you wallpaper picker from android 12 which allows you to pick colors from your wallpaper to be accent, colors and menus of your phone. So one thing that I've noticed is that on all these Samsung phones, a new Google messages app is installed which is cool. If you go to the Play store and try to download Google messages it says that you have them installed but when you open it, it's a Samsung skinned version they're the only ones who have been able to do that. A new Google Duo feature is then launched where you can essentially view a Youtube clip.

Although google has this feature and then gives samsung four years of software updates for the Galaxy s22s after they launch, that's three years of software updates which Google is promising with their own phone in the pixel. You see what I get at so the Galaxys. 22S are boring, yes, but the boringness comes from them, having basically no glaring weaknesses and making them incredibly easy to recommend.

I wish they included a charger in the box so you didn't have to pay out of your way to buy a 45-watt charger and make more waste to actually use that feature, and I appreciate that some plastics used in the phone are really made from recycled fishing nets, but that's really only a small place in the big picture of Samsung's footprint, but in that classic frequently asked question- if you're in the market for a flagship phone right now- and I don't.
