Under the heading Techradar Review from , ” brings the galaxy into note range with a big expensive and generally great android phone. techradar has this to say about phone in conclusion section: s22 ultra is powerful attractive incredibly versatile ready for important tasks handwritten notes gaming casual web browsing screen cameras space zoom capabilities… are clear yes you pay high amount all these features.>

Galaxy S22 Ultra pros and cons from a monoradar perspective include the following:

Great cameras with zoom capability
Great little S Pen
Attractive and smooth display
High price
No microSD slot
Possibility of better battery life

About the cameras of this phone, Tekradar talks about the same appearance and features of these cameras compared to the past, but at the same time emphasizes that the technology used to take pictures in this model has been upgraded: “While the image sensors Compared to S21 Ultra unchanged Still, Samsung has done some work on optical image stabilization, digital image stabilization (better for the Super Steady system), and image processing. The results [of these works] have been better performance than all lenses, especially in the zoom range.” Stating satisfaction with the performance of the S22 Ultra’s zoom cameras, Tekradar describes it as better than any other mobile camera.

This source mentions the high quality of the image in the zoom range of 3 to 10 times and in zooms higher than 30 to 100 times, although we are facing much better conditions than the previous generation, but still cannot be done without pixelation of the image. Cut or crop parts of it. Tekradar explains the issue this way: “Part of this [problem] is related to [the] stabilization system, which at 100x [zoom] essentially takes over the control of the lens and keeping the subject (like the moon) still in the frame. “It [the subject] can feel a bit like you’re not controlling the lens anymore, but it does a good job of dealing with hand shake.” The phone’s wide and ultra-wide cameras also benefit from “new pixel magic,” where all nine pixels on the sensor are combined to form one larger pixel for “better contrast and color,” according to TekRadar.


At Engadget’s review of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which has the title of “the best of two galaxies”, this model is called “a phone It is described as “excellent, as advanced as it is familiar.” In the conclusion section S22 Ultra says: The S22 Ultra is, for all intents and purposes, a new Galaxy Note with the same rectangular look, the same built-in S Pen, and the same high-end spec list. With the S22 Ultra, Samsung introduced a more mainstream audience to the S Pen, which has long been a hallmark of the Note series. By combining the two [product] lines, Samsung consolidated the most popular features across its portfolio while strengthening its high-end products. That’s [of course] not to say that there’s nothing new about the S22 Ultra, Samsung has also delivered an upgraded camera, display and software features this year.”

Pros and cons of S22 Ultra from a glance Gadgets include:

bright and colorful display
useful S Pen With a built-in stand inside the device
Reliable cameras
Exclusive screen sharing feature on Google Duo (until today of course)
Poor appearance of some new features
Relatively short battery life

The author of the review of the Engjet website describes some new features of the S22 Ultra cameras. The software of this collection, such as auto-framing, improving image stabilization in video, better detection of depth of field in portrait images, and other features that Samsung calls it Adaptive Pixel, the latter of which, according to Enggett, combines images taken with the 108-megapixel camera sensor with photos taken in 9 pixels in one pixel (nona-binning) mode. put together to create a brighter image with more details. This feature in the real world, however, according to this news source, is not very straightforward and its results may not be worth trying. Engget states that the reason for this issue is the unavailability of an option to activate it from the users, and it is the system itself that decides on its use. The Galaxy S22 Ultra reportedly produces more saturated photos in daylight than the Pixel 6 Pro.


At PCMag’s review of the Galaxy S22 Ultra emphasized the Note aspect of the device more than anything else, which made a significant difference compared to the previous generation. . The author of the article, who spent almost the entire last year with the S21 Ultra, concluded at the end of the article that in the presence of S21 Ultra or Note20 Ultra Need to spend a whopping $1,200 to get S22 Ultra and despite minor improvements in some parts, there are still no great revolutionary features in this model. Of course, the author considers this phone suitable for the owners of older Note phones and those who want to experience S Pen or 10x camera zoom.

The pros and cons of the S22 Ultra from PCMag’s point of view include:

Integration of S Pen in the phone itself
High battery life
Screen Full of light
Excellent antenna performance in weak signal environments
Very large dimensions
Easy scratching of the back part
Slight improvements of the camera compared to the previous generation

PCMag in the S22 Ultra camera review focuses primarily on imaging capabilities At night, this phone is gone; Where Samsung claims that the low light imaging capabilities of this phone have improved so much that it can be called nightography. But the author of the article goes on to say: “I think this [claim] is an overstatement.” “The S22 [Ultra] is better in low light than the S21 [Ultra], but not by much.” In the following, the performance of the phone’s main camera at night is mentioned, which shows more saturated colors, better depth of field and less light reflection from the lens, but taking these shots still requires two to three seconds and taking photos with a 10x zoom camera. Also, due to the closed aperture of the f/4.9 lens, it leads to a completely dark result compared to the f/1.8 lens of the main camera or f/2.4 of the 3x zoom camera

In daylight, according to PCMag, more saturated colors in the photos The S22 Ultra looks better than the S21 Ultra, and shadows are handled better than the previous generation. This article continues as follows: “To my non-photographer eyes, all these changes are relatively subtle and do not push the imaging capabilities as far as the new generations of phones have pushed them forward in the past.” The author as examples in this field of night mode or photography at night S20 Ultra compared to S10 mentions before that they make a visible change. The same thing happens when switching from S20 Ultra to S21 Ultra also occurred; Where there has been a fundamental improvement in focus quality and an efficient 10x zoom was also in front of the users. According to the writer of PC Mag, there is not much news about these big changes comparing the S22 Ultra with its previous generation.


CNET review of S22 Ultra once again emphasizes the presence of the pen in this model and under its title, it says is: “The appeal of the Galaxy S22 Ultra rests on new Note-inspired features and improved low-light camera [capabilities], otherwise it’s not that different from the S21 Ultra.”

In the review’s conclusion This phone is a duplicate S22 Ultra compared to S21 Ultra is emphasized that now It only has a look inspired by the Note series. The usual changes expected from a next-generation phone, such as a new processor, are also present in this model, but leaving them aside, we face a situation completely similar to before. Thus, according to CNET, this phone should be considered more of an update aimed at Galaxy Note series enthusiasts, who now intend to update Galaxy Note20 Ultra with a lifespan of more than two years.

Weaknesses and strengths of the S22 Ultra from the point of view of CNET include these items are:

Presentation of S Pen and consideration of a place for it in the phone itself
Great low-light photography
Closer zoom compared to most competitor phones
Distinctive design
High price
Approximately the same camera compared to S21 Ultra
Lower battery life compared to S21 Ultra

Author of the article CNET’s review speaks of the S22 Ultra’s favorable low-light photos most of the time, though In details and contrast, they are somewhat better than S21 Ultra, but to see these details and understand the difference between the two, you have to carefully examine these photos. The reason for this difference, despite the same camera hardware in S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra, belongs to a new feature called Adaptive Pixel, during which the combination of integrated pixels and photos taken with full resolution are used. The combination of 9 pixels in one pixel to absorb higher light is not a new thing in Samsung phones, but using the image with full resolution to improve the image is a new and fresh point in this section.

CNET from close competition S22 Ultra with Pixel 6 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro speaks volumes in low-light environments, making the iPhone 13 Pro the closest competitor to the S22 Ultra, where both phones detail High and produce wonderful colors even in very low light. According to CNET, the iPhone 13 Pro has brighter colors and better performance in the field of focus. Of course, the S22 Ultra also shows a brighter and more prominent image compared to the Pixel 6 Pro.
