If you did check my review of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G, I have crowned it as the best Android smartphone for 2022. It has checked all the boxes to become the best flagship smartphone for the year.
Here are 5 reasons to back the statement.
Most Durable Galaxy Yet
Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphones are the first smartphone to have Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ which is currently only exclusive for Samsung Galaxy S22s.
With the combo of the strongest aluminum, Armor Aluminium frame, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G is the most durable Galaxy yet.
Additionally to that, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is fully sealed against dust and water with IP68 resistance. So you can use the device without worrying about scratching or causing damage to it.
The S Pen is finally back and first on the Galaxy S Pen with a slot for it. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra allows you to be creative, you can now doodle or take notes right on the device. It also offers a lot of features like screen selection, live messages, AR doodles, translation, and turn it into a magic wand. Letting you use your S Pen as a wand in the app and control what they do with a few air gestures.
The S Pen can be a solid productivity tool if you make good use of it.
Samsung is known for making the best smartphone displays on smartphones, and while the company has been ahead for years. Samsung would showcase their best hardware on their flagship device including on the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G.
Equipped the most advanced and brightest LTPO 2.0 AMOLED panel with a peak brightness of 1,750 nits. The Vision Booster uses AI to improve colors reproduction even at maximum brightness.
You will also get a smooth shift from 1Hz refresh rate, all the way up to 120Hz. This primarily helps to conserve battery while readily pushing up to 120Hz when required.
Multi Focals Camera
Samsung Galaxy S series is reputable for its photography capability and Samsung has set a new bar on its camera performance. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G offers a multifocal lens for different scenario usage; from 120-degree ultrawide to a glass 10x optical zoom. This allows you to capture the most details images without any digital cropping.
The 108-megapixels main camera is built with a 2.4um pixel sensor, Samsung’s largest ever sensor ever which enabled capture more light and data, optimizing the lighting and detail of photos and videos.
With robust AI camera capabilities on its image stabilization system and image processing, you will be able to capture stunning photos and videos in any lighting condition.
I’ll have a separate article to talk about the camera advancement and capability, especially shooting with the ExpertRAW.
Longest-lasting Android Smartphone
With the announcement from Samsung committing to provide 5 years of security updates and 4 major Android OS updates. That’s better than Google’s own Pixel lines devices that only offer 3 major Android OS updates.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G is shipped with Samsung OneUI 4.1 based on Android 12, so we will get to taste Android 16 before the software gets obsolete.
You can own the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G from RM 5,099. I would highly recommend you to spend an extra RM 400 to double up the storage to 256GB. As I’m writing this, Samsung Malaysia is still offering a free Samsung Galaxy Watch4 (40mm) worth RM 899, Galaxy x Lamy Safari Twin Pen worth RM 269, and 6 months of 100GB OneDrive cloud storage when you purchase it from Samsung E Store.
