is a perfect mix between the Note and the S range

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung’s flagship, aims to conquer the most demanding and professional users. Its main demands are a remarkable camera, the return – or inclusion – of the S-Pen and an excellent screen.

In this sense, he is looking to fight side by side at the top of the podium and, although in previous generations he was one step away from leading it, it is more than possible that we have in front of us the best mobile phone of 2022.

This is especially important this year due to declining sales.

That’s why the Galaxy S22 Ultra has a big mission ahead: to be the best phone of the year. Will succeed? In terms of specifications, it is a 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9 mm smartphone, which means it is thicker and larger than usual. In terms of weight, its 229 grams do not go unnoticed.

It is not a very ergonomic phone and it will feel great from all points of view. However, this dimension also has positive points: viewing any content on its screen is a delight.

Turning to the design, the device is made of glass on the front and back. Both sides are protected by Gorilla Glass Victus +, the toughest material so far in terms of protection (which will be a bonus for slippery hands). In fact, it looks very nice to the touch.

It also has IP68, the highest degree of protection that a mobile phone can have against access by particles, such as dust, and liquids (water, for example).

The S-Pen is back and it’s a great idea.

With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung is bringing back the S-Pen, the stylus that it abruptly removed with the release of the Galaxy Note and that it brought back – only compatibility, not included in the box – with Galaxy Fold 3. Now we have it as standard on this flagship and is an excellent move.

Not only does the S-Pen help you to be more precise in your execution of tasks, but they are also a plus in terms of fun (especially if you like calligraphy and drawing).

In this sense, it has a latency of 2.8 milliseconds, which makes any shot you make instantaneous at the execution level. What will it do for you in your daily life? In practical terms, it has 4 uses: cutting images and text (Smart Select), translating words (you can place S Pen on words and they are translated automatically), taking notes and photos or playing music (by gestures).

In addition to all this, it incorporates some of the old Samsung favorites that we have seen in previous generations: animated messages, AR cartoons and the extended PENUP community.

No need to hide it: Samsung always has one of the best screens on the market. And yes, it’s too early to tell, but we’ll see at the end of the year if there’s a smartphone to beat the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s screen.

Technically, this device has a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a WQHD + resolution of 3,088 x 1,440 pixels. This technology allows you to see bright, slightly saturated colors as well as pure black tones. In other words: a very Samsung screen.

In addition, it has a refresh rate of 1 to 120 Hz, which makes the panel much easier to operate. The device itself allows you to choose whether you want to set it to Standard or Adaptive resolution. The first option allows all applications to run at 60Hz to increase the battery life of the device, while the second allows you to go up to 120Hz to adjust the refresh rate if the application allows it – if not, it runs at 60Hz .

All this will allow you to enjoy content, videos and games at a spectacular quality. This, along with being a huge device, makes it clear that few other phones will be able to handle it.

Top power: Exynos 2200 shines and will amaze demanding users

Basically, the Samsung Galaxy 22 Ultra incorporates the Exynos 2200, the Korean company’s best processor to date. It comes with 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal memory, which is not bad at all.

On a practical level, this allows you to run games with high demands without problems and to have several applications open at the same time, so it is an easy and very pleasant experience.

Sound and connectivity in line with the flagships of 2022: good for Samsung

The sound from the speakers on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is clear and pure, which is to be appreciated at this time, as it is an aspect that manufacturers tend to neglect in favor of other details. Music lovers will appreciate it.

On the other hand, in terms of connectivity, you have everything you would expect from a flagship phone in 2022: 5G, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC.

A battery with pros and cons: the 5,000 mAh offers a very accurate day-to-day battery life. If you are a standard user, you will end up at the end of the day a little more carefree.

In terms of support, you get up to 45W of power, but there is no charger included in the box, a position of Samsung that is not surprising (it is not the first or last manufacturer to make this decision), but it is not a good thing for no one. Eventually, you spend a lot of money on a high-end smartphone and either have a charger at home or have to buy one.

On the other hand, the device will fully charge in just over an hour, and in 20 minutes it will be at half capacity.

It also supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, which can get you out of a difficult situation (such as charging wireless headphones if they run out of battery in the middle of a trip and you don’t have a charger on hand) .

He has a spectacular room, which is fighting for first place on the podium

The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera will bring versatility and quality to your photos. Here’s how it’s set up:

– 108 megapixel f / 1.8 main camera to capture as much light as possible

– 12 megapixel f / 2.2 wide angle for landscape or group photos

– 10 megapixel telephoto lens, 3x optical f / 2.4, for details

– 10 megapixel telephoto lens 10x optical f / 4.9, for details

– 40 megapixel f / 2.2 front camera for selfies

And video? You will be able to record 8K at 30fps.

Samsung Galaxy S22 shines through its main sensor. The company offers good results, although with a peculiarity of Samsung: it still slightly saturates the colors.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 probably has a price that is not for everyone. It is a smartphone for professionals and demanding users who have a good budget to spend on a phone.
