Samsung Galaxy S22 5G: Oh, just a little thing
The Samsung Galaxy S22 5G is familiar and still comes with some design changes. It is flat only slightly rounded to the corners for safety. There is no curved glass on the front and the look is minimalistic and straight line. The back, made of glass and not the objectionable plastic that is acceptable at this price, has a matte finish in a variety of colors. Our review unit features Phantom White and the Mother of Pearl Sheen about it.
The camera housing does not flow to the edge this time but is aligned with it. One corner of that housing is a bit sharp and the thing to keep in mind when you carry the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G is that it is likely to get stuck, but the chances are not high. The satin-smooth glass back contains only the Samsung logo and cameras and does not attract fingerprints at all.
Dazzling pleasant performance
The front of the phone, protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, has a 6.1-inch screen with fine symmetrical bezels. The armor is made of aluminum. Watching the movie on this small screen is also a great experience as the display dazzles as expected from Samsung and supports 2K dynamic AMOLED and HDR10 + with 120Hz refresh. The maximum brightness of the screen reaches 1300 nits. There are some differences between the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G screen and the other two in the series (how minimal the refresh self-adaptations are) but no one but those who track these nuances are likely to notice. It has a good set of speakers in terms of frequency, but it’s like a small phone and not as loud and full as big phones.
Like the other two S22 phones, it runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. No wonder the phone is so fast and annoying, especially for someone new.
But it can be a little warm if asked to do very intensive tasks. Gaming, shooting video and huge updates are a little hot under the collar. This may be a problem with the 8 Gen 1 chip and there are no phones running on it.
Our device has 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. No memory card slot or headphone jack but it is dual SIM; Supports many 5G bands. The battery is 3,700mAh with 25W charging – not a number we’m used to seeing on very large phones. The battery is lightweight to moderate use to make the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G more compatible, but heavy consumption requires you to recharge during the day. It supports wireless and reverse charging, but no charger in the box.
It’s a bit difficult to say charging fast by today’s standards, because it takes an hour and a half to top up. So far, we are seeing phones that can be completed in fifteen minutes. The battery is actually smaller than it was last year, so this is what most reviewers complain about.
Phone IP68 Water Resistant.
Samsung’s OneUI’s great software in version 4.1 above Android 12. It now stands as one of the best interface. Together with the hardware, it actually allows you to do everything you can with the rest of the series except for a few camera functions on the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G. It also works with DeX connection to another screen, Bixby performs routines, etc. Although it is on the small screen there is no compromising experience here.
The main camera on the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G has been increased from 12MP to 50MP with a 23% larger sensor and has optical image stabilization and improved low light performance. Ultra-wide lens 12 MP, f / 2.2 Software stabilization for 120˚ viewing and video. It also has a good telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. You can increase it to 30x software zoom, but there are some situations when you need it.
Front camera 10MP. Video from the main camera can be shot at 8K at 24fps and 4K at 30 / 60fps and 4K at 30 / 60fps from the front camera. It has a familiar camera setup and works really well. In fact it is comparable to the iPhone 13 camera.
At 128 72,999 for the 128GB variant and ₹ 76,999 for the 256GB variant, the S22 is the most affordable in the flagship series. Both come with 8GB RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 5G is clearly suitable for those who do not use the ‘power’ level, but it can do most of the things that big phones can do while satisfying the desire for a more efficient compatible device.
