Which Samsung Galaxy smartphone to buy? Our reviews! September 2022

Which Samsung Galaxy smartphone to buy

Samsung cuts and goes upmarket on the Galaxy A series, Galaxy S, and the extensive Note. Releases and renewals are frequent, without the previous smartphones leaving the shelves. It’s pretty specific to this brand; old star references commonly remain on the shelves for two or three years, steadily dropping in price, until they compete and surpass newer but more expensive models. Taking into account on one side of our dozens of tests in the laboratory of the latest Samsung Galaxy, on the other, the prices currently displayed in stores and your budget, here is our selection of favorite Samsung Galaxy devices of the moment:

The Digital Laboratory independently tests more than 100 phones annually and establishes 1,000 measurements on each: speed, photo, screen, autonomy, and ergonomics. The Smartphone Comparison brings together all the references tested recently, a comparison from which our selection of the best Samsung smartphones is drawn.

Samsung Galaxy S22+

Samsung Galaxy S22+: a good high-end smartphone, not without flaws

The Samsung Galaxy S22+ is a good smartphone. It excels in screen and ergonomics – even if it may be too big for some hands – and hits the mark in terms of autonomy, revised upwards compared to the Galaxy S21 +. It is not, however, without flaws. The first concerns night photography (the famous “Nightography”), which remains far from the manufacturer’s promises. Then comes the performance of the Exynos 2200, still far from what we could have hoped for. After an Exynos 2100, which was able to reconcile us with the SoCs made by Samsung, it is clear that 2022 will not see the birth of a Snapdragon version on the European market. As it stands, this S22+ does not demerit, but these two elements on which Samsung is betting strongly have not been able to convince us.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: when the South Korean plays a new score

The Galaxy S22 Ultra gave us a hard time during its test. Announced success thanks to its stunning screen, its integrated stylus, and multiple photo sensors, it grabs our fifth-star thanks to its perfect durability score, carried by its promise of software updates for four years. This masks some disparities in actual performance: its Exynos 2200 is not entirely (at the time of its release at least) at the expected level, and its promises related to night photography are only partly kept. Suppose this is a perfectly versatile, enduring smartphone, which finally brings the qualities of a Galaxy Note to a Galaxy S. In that case, it makes concessions that are difficult to forget in its price segment.

Samsung Galaxy S22: the compact and design option

The Samsung Galaxy S22 is a beautiful smartphone. Its exemplary design, lightness, the quality of its finishes, and, above all, compactness make it a charming model in hand. It also benefits from IP68 certification and an enjoyable matte back, not to mention a bright screen on the front with great colors. This natural evolution of the Galaxy S21 benefits from a slightly increased autonomy compared to its elder. We excuse it’s not very fast charging, which its battery capacity compensates for. However, it isn’t easy to forgive him for his nocturnal photo performance, without much brilliance, as well as his performance at half mast in the mobile gaming department, points he was widely expected of. But like its entire range, this Galaxy S22 benefits from

Samsung Galaxy S21+: the same smartphone, bigger

Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S21 + does not solve the main flaw of the S21: autonomy. Despite a larger capacity accumulator, the terminal does not manage to turn a corner in this area. It is still an excellent smartphone whose qualities are undeniable. We particularly appreciate its exceptional screen, which flirts with perfection, its first-rate performance, and its perfect daytime photos. But since it has to be compared to the competition, it is clear that some do better in terms of night photographs and autonomy, such as the Google Pixel 5 or the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. If the idea of ​​recharging your mobile daily strikes you, move on. Otherwise, go for it.
