There is a lot to like about the latest release in Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S22 series. If you are looking for a balanced blend of speed, size, and performance, the Samsung Galaxy S22 is an excellent choice. Designed with an aluminum frame and glass body, this phone is both lightweight and durable. The sleek and attractive design provides optimal user comfort and functionality.
Is the Samsung Galaxy S22 the right device for me?
If you are looking for a fairly compact device that is versatile and feature-rich, the Galaxy S22 may be right for you. The standard unit provides a good blend of speed and power, with an impressive display and camera system. The S22 comes standard with 128GB of storage, so if you plan to store a lot of images, video, and apps on your phone, you may want to consider going with the 256GB model since it is not compatible with expanded memory.
The battery life on the S22 is decent, typically delivering up 12+ hours of use for activities like messaging, web browsing, streaming video, taking photos, playing games, and using a wide variety of apps.
If your regular activities tend to include a lot of gaming and video streaming, you may want to consider upgrading to the Galaxy S22+ or the S22 Ultra. Both of these devices feature larger displays and longer battery life.
Galaxy S22 Look & Feel
The design of the Galaxy S22 is both attractive and ergonomic for user comfort and enjoyment. It is constructed similarly to the S21 with a couple of differences. One noticeable difference is the glass backing on the S22, as opposed to the plastic back of the S21. Durability is not sacrificed, however, as the Corning Gorilla Glass Vicus+ material is extremely sturdy.
The 6.1″ adaptive AMOLED display is both vibrant and responsive. It features a 120Hz refresh rate for an enhanced user experience, seamless scrolling, and reduced eye strain.
The powerful chipset provides excellent multitasking capabilities to smoothly navigate between various apps, streaming, gaming, and communication functions.
Colours available to choose from with Samsung Galaxy S22 include:
- Phantom Black
- Pink Gold
- Sky Blue
Galaxy S22 Cameras
Upgraded from the Galaxy S21 camera system, the S22 features one front-facing camera and three rear-facing cameras for extensive photography and video recording. General improvements have been made for capturing portraits, low-light images, and video recording stability.
For enhanced selfies and portrait images of others, portrait mode offers several options and live focus for clearer photos.
Portrait mode options include:
- Blur – to blur out the background
- Backdrop – greys out the background
- Studio – has a brightening effect on the subject
- Colour sharpness – enhances colour contrast between subject and background
- High-key mono – monochromatic effect with high brightness
- Low-key mono – monochromatic effect with low brightness
Samsung has now made Night Mode smarter and more effective and has recognized these enhancements by coining the term Nightography. This feature automatically selects the ideal frame rate to capture the optimal amount of light the environment is providing. The Galaxy S22 is equipped with a 23% larger sensor and Adaptive Pixel technology to capture high-quality images and video even in the dark.
Recording steady video can be extremely challenging without the right tools. Image stabilization has been improved on the Samsung Galaxy S22 to reduce blurriness and the effect of sudden movements when recording video. This feature works automatically across multiple video modes depending on the application.
