Released in February, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of the best smartphones of this year. In addition to a 6.8-inch dynamic AMOLED display with a high QHD Plus resolution, it offers a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. It runs by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in all countries, except Europe, where it runs by Exynos 2200. Also, the Galaxy S22 possesses an internal storage of up to 1024 GB with either 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Moreover, it is water and dust-resistant, supports wireless charging, USB 3.2, UWB, NFC, WiFi 6E, and an S Pen (stored in the case). Furthermore, with excellent battery life, the latest Samsung model does not leave much room for complaints. Unfortunately, there are certain flaws in the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
To start with, the Exynos SoC is a marginally weaker GPU than the Qualcomm SoC. As a result, the highly applauded Xclipse GPU does not offer the usual High-Res and HFR options, specifically necessary for games. Furthermore, the adaptive refresh rate control is not up to the mark as it only functions between 24 to 120 Hz instead of the promised refresh rate of between 1 to 120 Hz. In addition, the transfer rate in the 5-GHz band stays in the range of mediocre WLAN modules with WiFi 5 or 6. Moreover, the camera performance needs more upgrades.
Lastly, all the flaws in the Galaxy S22 Ultra mentioned above will likely be resolved by Samsung. However, it is a bit difficult to do so for a recently launched product.
