So far, Samsung’s Galaxy S phones have been easy to recommend to anyone looking for a top-of-the-line Android phone.
But recently, we’ve seen a lot of Chinese smartphone brands trying to compete in India’s premium smartphone market, especially after Huawei left the market.
Now, besides Apple, Samsung has to deal with a lot more serious competition in the high-end market.
Along with Xiaomi and Vivo, OnePlus has moved into this market with its last two flagship phones.
All of these brands make products that are very similar to or even better than Samsung’s Galaxy S counterparts in terms of features and specs, and we expect this trend to continue in 2022.
This year, even the up-and-coming company iQoo tried its hand at this market segment.
The price in India of the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+
Both the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ from Samsung come in two different styles, but they all have the same 8GB of RAM.
In India, the 128GB version of the Galaxy S22 costs Rs. 72,999 and the 256GB version costs Rs. 76,999.
The Galaxy S22+ costs Rs. 84,999 for the 128GB version and Rs. 88,999 for the 256GB version.
There are Phantom White, Phantom Black, and Green phones to choose from.
Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ design
I got a Phantom White Samsung Galaxy S22 and a Phantom Black Samsung Galaxy S22+.
The only difference between these two phones is that one is bigger than the other.
With the Galaxy S22+, you get a bigger screen and battery, and it charges just as quickly as the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The back of the Galaxy S22 is now made of glass (Gorilla Glass Victus+).
What Are More Features!
The back of the Galaxy S21 was made of plastic (Review). Both of these new models have a coating that keeps the screens from getting scratched.
The new Galaxy S22 siblings no longer have the rounded look of the S21 series.
Instead, they have sharper edges and flattened glass screens on the front and back.
Both phones have polished aluminium frames. I found that the matte finish on the Galaxy S22glass +’s back panel made it hard to use with one hand, but both phones did a good job of not getting fingerprints.
The screen on the Samsung Galaxy S22 is 6.1 inches and is full HD+ Super AMOLED.
The bigger 6.6-inch Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S22+ has the same full-HD+ resolution as the smaller model.
Both displays have a refresh rate of 120Hz.
The bezels on hole-punch displays are very thin, and the screens are good at not getting dirty. Both phones’ back cameras stick out a few millimetres, which makes them wobble when you try to use them on a flat surface.
Both devices have an IP68 rating, which means they can handle dust and water.
The specs and software for the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+
The Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra are the first S series phones in India to use Qualcomm SoCs instead of Samsung’s Exynos hardware.
What About Ports!
Each phone has Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and a USB Type-C port, which are all ways to connect wirelessly.
Both have a slot for two SIM cards and can use two 5G networks at the same time.
When compared to the phones that came before them, both have smaller batteries.
The battery on the Galaxy S22 is only 3,700mAh, while the Galaxy S22+ has a 4,500mAh battery.
How well do the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ work and how does ng the battery last
Both phones have great screens that are easy to see even in bright sinigrin
At the “Vivid” setting, the colours were a bit too bright, but I was able to change things to my liking.
The displays can also play back HDR10 and HDR10+.
This worked as expected across apps and services, showing colours that were bright and very dark black marks.
Samsung’s Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ were about as good as other smartphones with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chips.
AnTuTu gave the Galaxy S22 and S22+ 8,12,284 points and 8,37,822 points, respectively. Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests gave the Galaxy S22 1,177 and 3,197 points, while the Galaxy S22+ got 1,212 and 3,248 points in the same tests.
On either phone, it was easy to play games. But I noticed that the Samsung Galaxy S22 often got hotter than the Galaxy S22+ when I played games like Call of Duty: Mobile with the graphics and frame rate set to “Very High” and “Max.”
Both displays’ touch sampling rates were perfect, so I had no trouble playing competitive first-person shooters. I also noticed that both phones got warm when I used their cameras.
When used outside, day or night, the frame and back panel around the back cameras got very hot.
Thank goodness, the camera apps never shut down, and neither did I get any warnings about the heat.
On both phones, the battery life was pretty good. The Samsung Galaxy S22’s 3,700mAh battery let me use it all day, even though I usually played games for an hour, streamed videos, and used the camera a few times.
