Samsung has assembled its top smartphones under the Galaxy S series. The most affordable entry into the series is currently the Galaxy S22. Compared to its strong predecessor, the Galaxy S21, it scores with several improvements, including a particularly bright AMOLED display.

If you compare the Samsung Galaxy S22 with last year's Galaxy S21, it only has to make concessions in one area: At 6.1 inches, it is 0.1 inches smaller and thus has the same dimensions as the Apple iPhone 13.

But there are even more similarities to the Apple competitor. Just like the iPhone 13, the Galaxy S22 is a very high-quality piece of technology that packs a variety of excellent features and a lot of power into a compact chassis.

In many respects, the Galaxy S22 only differs from the Galaxy S21 in minor details, such as revised camera software that now allows for better night photos, or a 10% improvement in battery life.

One area where the current Galaxy S model makes a big jump forward is the AMOLED display, which again operates at a dynamic frame rate of up to 120 Hz, but is even brighter than its predecessor: our review shows that the Galaxy S22 achieves the manufacturer's specification of 1300 cd/m² in real-time testing. 

Even Android 16 will run on the Galaxy 16

Many Android smartphones do not receive further updates after only 2 years. Samsung is taking the opposite approach with the Galaxy S22, which will be supplied with at least four future Android OS updates. The Galaxy S22, which is delivered from the factory with Android 12, will likely be able to run Android 16.

Apple also offers particularly long update guarantees. For example, the iPhone 7, an oldie from 2016, was included for Apple's iOS 15 update in September 2021.
