Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Good but with some annoyance.
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I bought the S22 because of the compact size. I will start with the negatives because they need to be noted. Battery life and speaker are sub par. I occasionally get crackling when listening to music or speaking to people on the phone which is a known issue for this phone. I expected the battery life to be sub par because I read reviews but it really is pretty bad. I am getting about 5 hours or 5.5 hours of on screen time and my old S9 got me about 9 hours which wasn't great but acceptable. The phone is fast and receptive but honestly about the same as my old S9 during my speed check which was a shocker. The S22 is harder to hold compared to my S9 which has a more modern curved screen and not quite as wide. I would prefer the phone to be longer but less wide and clunky because it is easier to hold. I have small hands and early on set arthtitis. I also prefered the shape of the S9 which has made me consider upgrading to the S22+ which is a little longer but less wide so it would probably be easier to hold and the battery is slightly better too but I'm not sure if it warrants the $200 price increase. Honestly the issues leaves a lot to be desired for the cost. I also feel like the screen just feels more fragile. Camera advancements are the biggest benefit. The speaker is louder then my old phone but quality of the speakers aren't great. I was expecting more advancements in technology. This being said, the camera is pretty amazing. Portrait mode can be a hit or miss but for the most part the camera is soooo great. I love it so much, I may just keep the phone and deal with the negatives but I haven't decided. Photography is important to me and I think most could agree that Samsung did a great job here. The 3x optical zoom is great and I've been able to zoom in at 10-20x and get decent pictures and that is impressive. Video stabilization is great but video's at 3x zoom can be a hit or miss depending on the lightning. The camera can be improved in some areas but for the most part I'm impressed. I'm also getting more stable images with moving objects compared to my old phone. I actuality feel like the S9 took really great photos and in some ways is still better then the S22 but with so many advancements with the optical zoom feature and the front facing camera is also a lot better then my old phone. I feel like you really can get very close to dslr images with the S22 but It's just a small step up from 3-5 year old phones. The phone charges super fast which is definitely needed so this is another benefit. In all fairness if you have an S8-S9 I would wait to switch. The price doesn't warrant the upgrade but this is just my personal opinion. The biggest benefit is the camera and I'm just not sure that It's worthy of upgrading. As a matter of fact when I'm at home using wifi I still pick up my old S9 to stream social media because it just feels better in hand to hold. Definitely more comfortable to hold and part of this may be the clunker of a case so I may try and switch this out. I remember when the S1 came out and it was such a huge advancement in technology but honestly we haven't had that many advancements in the past 10 years. This is a great phone all in all but for the price, I was just expecting a little more. 3.5-4 stars but I will rate 4 stars. So far, I haven't seen any major issues but the ones I've experienced are a little annoying. In some ways I regret buying and in some ways I enjoy the phone, mostly for the camera. I haven't quite decided if I am going to exchange it for another phone. I will add some photos I've taken with the phone and let you decide.
Thank you for purchasing Samsung Galaxy S22 and leaving your review. We genuinely appreciate your taking the time to let us know of your concern about your device. We are so sorry that your phone's battery drains so fast. Let me help. Here's the troubleshooting link that will optimize your device battery:
I love my S22. It is increadibly fast/snappy, the cameras are great, the screen is gorgeous, it's the perfect size, the design is ergonomic and stylish, and the version of Android is really nice. The only thing that isn't fantastic is the battery life. It's not horrible, but not as great as my last iPhone that I am upgrading from. If you are a heavy power user who needs this to last all day without any charging, this may not be the phone for you. But for me and my use case, this is a great phone that I would definitely recommend!
Right sized phone for my fat fingers. Display is great but the battery life is not great. Hardly lasts 24 hours and also gets warm randomly( disabled adaptive brightness and it helped with both battery and heating issues). Do buy a case because the glass back and metal sides offer no grip. It looks very neat though.
Im bought this because i wanted a phone that will work with any cell phone company I pick .the price was no cheaper then if i bought at cell phone company. But its mine.and the cell phone company gets my business if I choose to keep them.Its a new buy unsure if all is well with phone.
Like the phone, but we are having serious problems trying to connect and stay connected to my husband's Dexcom G6 glucose monitor. Other than that the phone is great. Battery life is good, at least for now
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Cell Phone is excellent and a great improvement over my former Galaxy S phone (an older version). It charges very fast, holds a charge all day long, has an excellent screen, takes beautiful photos, and largely replaces my need to use my computer.
