Samsung’s latest flagship series, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, has quite a bit of expectation. There are some great features, but at the same time, Samsung’s newest smartphone generally doesn’t perform well in many areas.
Yesterday, DxOMark released the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (Exynos). This phone scores 131 points, ranking 13th out of 25. It trails behind two-year-old phones like the Huawei P40 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
Many upcoming flagships have better cameras than Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra. On DxOMark, the photo score was 134, and the video score was 114.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 Ultra (Exynos) has a phone full of accolades. Samsung also says that its Exynos 2200 chip is the fastest yet, and the large 6.8-inch screen is the brightest display yet.
The Samsung S22 Ultra is the first S-series model with a built-in S-Pen, a feature exclusive to the S series.
In the array’s camera, the “main module” is a 108-megapixel sensor that combines 9 pixels into one in low light, resulting in a sizeable 2.4μm pixel size. There’s also a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and two dedicated telephoto cameras. A 3x lens performs the task of mid-range telephoto with 10-megapixel resolution.
For more extreme long-range magnification, there’s a periscope-style 10x lens that is included. Additionally, the main camera also features an ultra-low-reflection nano-coating to reduce the cost of lens flare.
