The 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 ($799.99) is the least-expensive of Samsung's Galaxy S22 phones. We rated it one of the best phones you can buy right now, especially since it packs the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset that powers Samsung's costlier S22 phones.
The S22 features a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED FHD+ display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. You also get a 40MP (f/2.2) front camera and three rear lenses that include a 50MP (f/1.8) main, 12MP (f/2.2) ultrawide, and a 10MP (f/2.4) 3x telephoto lens.
In our Galaxy S22 hands on, we found it to be sharp and responsive, equal to that of any other Android flagship phone. It's a solid and worthy upgrade from an S20, but an otherwise dull upgrade if you have a Galaxy S21.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Galaxy S22 has a smaller battery than the S21, with a 3,700 mAh cell compared to the S21’s 4,000 mAh battery. That said, the improved adaptive refresh rate combined with the new chipset could prove to be more power efficient.
