Once you've used an S-Pen, you can't go back to a phone without one. Sure there are phones with a stylus, but still not yet as well integrated as the S-Pen. Having it and using it, you definitely realize how useful it is.

I also thought I wouldn't use the S Pen all that much when I purchased my first Galaxy Note. Now I won't buy a phone without one. Using the S22 Ultra for an entire month before posting your final review is a more accurate assessment of the S22 Ultra. Thanks for another great video Ella.

I agree 101%. Loved having the S Pen. I only wished that the S Pen is also present in mid-range devices, similar to Note10 lite because Ultra Series is way too expensive for me.

One thing to note that I learned years ago doing drop tests, is that while the case does protect the phone from shattering and protects the screen, it does not protect against internal damage such as speakers, camera, battery etc. Those things can still be damaged from the impact as something has to absorb the weight of the fall. Fully recommend leaving the drop test to reviewers if you're considering trying at home.

@Drummer_Zay94 if your phone uses a sim card it can damage the wiring to the sim reader and you will have a wifi tablet from drops. Im dealing with this right now and waiting on a replacement. Those cases don't protect internal damage. I have an otterbox defender case on the s21Ultra fyi.

That's ehy you get the ugly looking shock absorbing cases and not the flashy looking ones. It can still cause damage but the chances and the severity are significantly reduced.

I absolutely love my S22+ Ultra! I am a long time Galaxy user and moved up from a 1TB S10+ which I still use on a daily basis for movie downloads. The S Pen is a great addition and i find myself using it more than i thought i would for drawing and painting apps which function great on this phone. I was once an iPhone user years ago, and have played around with my kids' newest iPhones, but I still always go back happily to my Samsung!

I have the S22+ model. Got it 3 days ago and have to say that it's a great phone. I think once a new update comes though it'll be much better; hopefully they'll help to improve the battery performance somehow. I can get at least 7 hours out of it so far. But still room for improvement there.

I have seen videos comparing the RAW feature on the Samsung (especially portrait photography) comparing it to $2,000 professional digital cameras. The S22 RAW was obviously not as good as the pro phone, but I (and the pro photographer) was impressed with the fact that the S22 RAW held its own. Bottom line is it all depends who is taking the pictures.

I had the s22 U, Exynos version, that i just recently sold. It was quite good but I prefer the slightly narrower form factor of the s21 U that i decided to keep in the end. S-pen I've never used and but came with the phone so to speak. The camera quality is however better on the s22 U compared to the s21 U so that part I'll miss a little bit, but the difference between both phones isn't big overall.

Great review, just one question: Did the recent firmware updates improved anything in the camera department? I'm waiting for the delivery of an european model (exynos) from samsung. For me the most interesting features are the S-Pen, Camera and battery life. I'm comming from an Galaxy S7 (non-edge), so and I'm a bit bummed about the curved screen and the issues you brought up. Not a big issue, but samsung priritizing gimmicks that reduce the potential of an otherwise stellar screen is a let down. The edge did the same thing for the S7.

By far it is a really awesome device.. the s-pen is just lovely an addition. It makes editing and tweaking pictures so easy.. Personally, the best cases for me are either SPIGEN or CASEOLOGY... Great protection. I have been using their products for quite a long while and candidly, they don't let one down. Oo, my newest discovery, though pricey, is the screenprotector.. I once was in love with invisible iQ shield but there is a new heavyweight... solid and topnotch ...

I own this phone as well and I'm not a mobile gamer so the gos situation hasn't really bothered me. everything else on the phone is great long time Samsung user and I use the s pen a lot for jotting down quick notes as my job requires me sometimes to jot down things. but a lot of people don't know that Samsung makes 80% of iPhones components and up until recently made all the iPhone screens so as far as which phone to choose depends on the ecosystem you want to be in everything is relative nowadays

3:05 It IS the best screen currently available on a consumer smartphone device. There is nothing better at this time. If you don't like the color gamut, change the color mode from VIVID which it comes with in default in display settings. 10:25 Expert Raw from the Galaxy Store flips that comparison as many photography channels have pointed out. This is intentionally not pre-installed so as not to overwhelm users who just want to point and shoot with a phone camera.

It is the best at launch but OPPO and others are using exactly the same display now but have tweaked it differently, maybe not so saturated, not so bright (to favour battery) and have better dynamic refresh (going to 1Hz where Samsung cannot achieve less than 24Hz). If Samsung Displays did not sell the best displays to the other OEMs then they would move on. Apple threatened this and recently Samsung went to the US to make sure Apple would stay with them by promising them the best displays. This fallacy that Samsung makes the best display is pure fandom, the reason it is more pleasing is that YT creators use it on the vivid mode which appeals to the teen demographic. Other OEMs make the display more normal.

Great video and review. I must say, I thought the hype around castify was just marketing until I really couldn't find a case I liked for my new S22 and ordered my first case from them. The quality is great, the design I picked is perfect and I feel very confident in the level of protection. I will definitely buy from them again!

About the color gamut of the screen... if you find the colors too saturated just use natural instead of vivid in the display options. It make things pop a bit less but it look more realistic and true to life.

Each one is a corresponding color profile. Both are the most accurate you can get in any phone basically but it depends on what type of content you are looking at whether it be SDR or HDR10+ content. There are 5 types but 3 are hidden by default on S22 series for some weird reason. They're still there and can be set to them but older Samsung devices didn't hide them by default

Great Video! I'm a professional Video Game Artist, and while most people use the pen for casual writing and just as a productivity gadget, the pen to me is the most valuable piece of equipment. The Wacom Cintiq display tablets used by digital artists costs between $800-$1600 + TAX, and you're getting the phone + a device like the Cintiq. Samsung uses algorithms from Wacom itself to optimize the pen, and while you might not have the ability to use industry standard PC software like Photoshop, Clipstudio Paint... It'll help any artist like myself to concept and illustrate on the go. I then transfer my files to the PC and complete my work. For this reason I'm actually incapable of buying any other phone. And there's been so many situations where I wanted a pen and paper for notes, and I just had it in my pocket. So glad the Note isn't discontinued, but just rebranded!

Same I tried the normal S22 plus and the more boxy design made it slightly less comfortable to hold. Even though it is technically thinner than my previous S9+ it looked and felt significantly thicker. Went back to the S22 Ultra. For some reason the screen is a lot more vibrant with deeper blacks on both my curved S9+ and S22 Ultra while the flat S22+ looks washed out with green shaded colors to my eye. The S22 Ultra screen looks so much better imo than S22+ even though most people probably won't notice it. I expected a trade off with the Ultra would be that it's hard to hold but I got a high quality case for only $23 and even without it, it feels way better to one hand than the S22+ for me.

I absolutely love your review of the product, I agree with everything you said and learned as well so I really appreciate the video. Unfortunately for me 4 days into using my phone in a game it froze up and on more than one occasion and day. The first time from my previous Samsung phones. And because I couldn't use it right away when I received it I couldn't return it for an exchange. It was directly purchased from Samsung and not a cellular store. I did get directed to a repair store for Samsung and hoping that this is a fixable issue.

Great video! I was wondering what the fuss was about for the GOS. I mean it is very controversial for those who wants absolute maximum power, but for the sake of the integrity of the phone, I'll just let the phone stay optimized. Heat damages battery and I don't want to have to replace the phone, however with as much advance tech is, Samsung should come up with a better way to keep the phones cool. Other than that, I'm rocking my s21 ultra still. Thank you for your videoA

@Brandan L Gees, I find the low light capabilities of my S9+ to be great! I would imagine splitting hairs on which is best is trivial to all but the very few users. But hey, it's good that we have choice, but I do wish the US market was more diverse in phone offerings. I don't like being funneled into just a brand or two. Can you imagine what that would be like in other consumer products, such as cars? It's good for us all to have competitive brands and models. It helps keep the companies honest and provides choice.

You want a camera phone, go with Iphone 13 pro (Max or not), your photos will be the same to every other device. You want a phone with a camera, go with s22 ultra, you can add features you find in premium DSLRs but images can be grainy depended on camera lenses.

Thanks for the review, definitly hit on a few points that most reviewers have missed! I completely agree that Sammy should have ditched the curved screen on this one. Just one, possibly pedantic point from a photographers perspective: A composition of several frames is by definition NOT a raw file. A raw file is an unmolested, or nearly so, file containing all the data a sensor records. By using AI to "create" a new file, that's an in camera composite which is being edited by apple. A raw file isn't supposed to look all that good, you need to edit it first ;) The beauty being that you can pull the image a lot farther in any direction while editing than you can a jpg.

@blower2006 prefer the iphone? What a hypocrite, i literally held my sisters 12 pro max and those things dig into your hands from just holding on the sides... the 22 ultra, my device, is so comfortable to hold from the sides because of the curved edges. I can hold it as hard as i want from the sides and i'd have no marks left on my hands, did the same with the 12 pro max and my hand had marks of the sides for a few minutes legit, sharpest edges ever.. your hand is curved, curved screens are definitely the way to go. The corners are a problem, but honestly compared to the sides rarely touch the corner..

Ella, this is one of the most comprehensive, technically informative and interesting phone reviews that I've ever seen! Great job! I am a retired avionics engineer and I'm thinking about buying the S22 Ultra to replace my Samsung Note 8. I also owned the Note 3 previously and both have been excellent phones. I believe that a phone with a stylus has to be viewed as a tool that greatly extends the utility of an ordinary phone for those who want or need the stylus feature. I often draw diagrams, add dimensions, etc. and that sort of use really requires the larger canvas of a phablet. If I really didn't want the enhancement of a stylus-capable phone, I'd opt for something about the size of a regular Galaxy.

@Anieck I also upgraded from S10+ to S22 Ultra. I was using the s10+ for 3 years and recently upgraded to S22 Ultra. I could tell the differences between both phones. I could see huge upgrade with the camera, speaker and the smoothness of the phone. S22 ultra is just amazing, tbh. I am a gamer and I love to play games on my S22 ultra with its 120Hz. The smoothness of the graphics is just truly amazing although s10+ is also smooth playing games, S22 ultra is just 10x smoother. However, the only issue that I have with S22 Ultra is that it is big and felt like I have a brick in my pocket unlike my S10+ which I can use with one hand and fits in my pocket perfectly. But overall, I could say that the upgrade is worth it. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

The curved screen is what makes this phone great! It feels so much easier to grip than the iphone and that alone is a big selling point. It's an underrated feature that goes unnoticed until you switch to a flat screen thicker phone like the iphone which is a nuisance to hold

I also hate the curved screen. Getting a screen protector on it is fine, but after a while, dust starts to hit the edges and it peels off over time. I've gone through so many with different brands on my note 9 and figured its just the damn curved screen. Other than that, don't like the sharp corners but can live with it.

A flat screen makes the phone feel thicker imo. It also hides the bezels and looks so much cooler.

Thanks for the follow-up review! It was very thoughtfully, and professionally done. Did you use "Expert RAW" when shooting raw? I think this was a fair and honest review, However, If I didn't already have the S22 Ultra, and had not taken it with me as my only camera during my latest trip to Disney World I might think the cameras less capable and less awesome than they are based on your review. During my past three family vacations to Disney World I've taken my Canon DSLR with multiple lenses (very good glass) along to ensure I got good quality images in both daylight, low light, and night photos and videos. Even though I knew I'd be using it only for snapshots, and not compositions. But this trip I thought I'd take a chance and only use my phone for photos and video because I was impressed with the few photos and videos that I had taken with it, and I was blown away with photo and video quality I had gotten thus far. Understand, I'm not a brand evangelist so I'm not preaching for any brand. But as a tech nerd who spends way to much time researching, reading, watching reviews, and comparing tech, I don't think there is a phone on the market that is a more complete package, and does so many things so well as the S22 Ultra. Because if there was I'd own it. LOL If you know of one please review it.

Thank You so much for this comment, I just ordered one yesterday and now I'm very confident with my purchase. I was thinking I should've went with the pro max but your comment just explained everything I was nervous about with the few reviews I've seen. I love my notes I've had the note 3, note 9 and I'm sure I'm going to love my S22 Ultra 😀 thanks for the Raw tip, I will definitely use that!

This was a very informative video as i'm potentially upgrading from a A10e to the Ultra, as I like the style and the in-built pen design. Would have to see how it fairs to the games I like (i.e. honkai impact, punishing gray raven, etc), but it will most likely prevail compared to my current phone considering i've been told it's something along the lines of being a beginner/entry level phone, so it's to be expected.

Thanks for bringing up the raw performance. Apple ProRaw on my iPhone 13 Pro Max has been a game-changer for me - I used it for all my vacation photos during my last trip, and have also been able to sneak a few shots from my phone into my pro work that I usually just use my Sony a7iii for. The latitude offered in those files is immense. I'd legitimately miss it if I had to go back to the "classic" raw photos from phones. All that aside, while I'm an iPhone guy, this is easily my "if I had to use Android" phone pick.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a perfect device, we’re getting the best camera system, the best quality display and a massive battery but there’s a small problem, during long usage and genshin impact gameplay, I saw some frame drops even after turning off the GOS.

Thank you for your review of the Samsung S22 Ultra as I have had mine just over a month now and love it. I upgraded from the S20 Ultra 5G and I must say I love the look and build of this Note...I mean S22 Ultra 🤭. As for the sharp edges anyone with a brain will get a case for this expensive unit which will negate the sharp edges and provide protection. I always go with Otter Box Symmetry clear as you can admire it and it feels good in my hand and non slippery 🤗.

I like the flat screen in the old (S Ultra) series & the sharp corners of the (Note) series,, but the combination between them this year came with the curve regretly 😓. I think it's less practical & durability than the flat one, but at the end I need the S-Pen .. so the Ultra is the best Choice for me👍🏼

Yeah I don't get the point of having a 3x camera with such low resolution. On my S22+ the 3x photos are almost just as good as a cropped main sensor ones. And on the ultra the main sensor is even better. I think they should have just scrapped the 3x altogether if they wouldn't put a better sensor on it

Thanks Ella and I support your thoughts and opinion. You are spot on about the camera as for some reason the cameras have not been that good. (My Ultra had shutter lag). I am going to upgrade my Note 8 to this as a no brainer upgrade. I also have a Note 20 Ultra. For me though the "except" in your title would refer to Samsung taking away SD storage options. No slot anymore for external SD.

Hello Ella. Thank you for this great video. When buying this kind of phone, one has to think what are the needs. I had old Huawei before and I wanted to buy a modern smartphone. I do not need pen. I need to shoot macros and zoom photos. I am pleased with those, which I shot until now. I love also its video capacity. I am not playing, but I watch music videos with my phone. In those music videos, the music is number one and photos / videos are in second place. I have a Nikon camera with zoom lens and one with 500 x zoom. My s22, seems to have easily the same zooming capacity. It seems to be equivalent with S22 Ultra’s x 50 zoom. S22, cannot shoot for example goals of ice hockey, but my Nikon can do. Nikon is heavy to carry and this is one reason I bought S22 ultra. With Nikon I can shoot 6 photos in one second, but not with s22 Ultra. I also wonder if S22 ultra can resists cold. When I shot photos from unique free reindeer races in Finland for everyman, we had the temperature of -25°C/ -13°F. Nikon worked fine. Well, the fact is me, that I will us my s22 ultra for photographing and videos. Nikon I will use in special events. Thank you very much. Have a great day. Matti

As a Note user since the Note 3, currently on the Note 10, I can confirm the curved screen is a bad design decision from a functional perspective. If you like to use the pen for drawing, imagine what it's like to draw on a curved surface. I really enjoy the pen but I may stop buying these if they continue to curve the screens.

The S3 was my first Samsung phone. Then I got the S5, S7, S8 (still have it) and the S10 plus (still have this too). I never had a Note phone before because I couldn't justify the extra cost just to get a bigger phone and a pen. Well, after 3 years of owning the S10, it finally started acting its age. It still works but I use it now to control my drone and have a screen to look at. I just bought the S22 ultra (phantom black) and so far I love it. Had it for a week and I have found myself using the s pen a lot.
