Looking at this striking smartphone for the first time, you could be mistaken for thinking that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G, the biggest and most glamorous of the S22 family, was really part of the Galaxy Note series.
With its huge 6.8-inch screen, flat front & back and curved aluminium side edges, it looks remarkably like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Similarities to the Galaxy Note continue with the integrated S Pen, its productivity capabilities and the breath-taking camera array.
There is no doubt however that this is the Samsung flagship smartphone, with the stunning Dynamic AMOLED 2X ultra high-resolution display aptly described by GSMArena in its Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G review as:
“Eye-searing brightness, adaptive refresh rate, QHD resolution, S Pen compatibility, all that coupled with OLED's true black blacks, make for a package that's practically unrivalled...”
What to expect from a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra refurbished - 5G?
This powerful, premium styled phone is not only gorgeous on the outside with its attractive Note-like design and dazzling AMOLED display but comes loaded with features that make the combined package very hard to resist.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is available with 2 different chipsets depending on location – in Europe we have the Exynos 2200 while elsewhere it will be running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The Exynos connectivity options include built in 5G modem, Wi-Fi 6e and dual band GPS.
Performance wise, the S22 Ultra 5G can manage multiple apps on screen with no slowdown and overall performance is excellent. Battery life, due to the massive 5000mAh battery, is very efficient, even across the settings and functions that would usually be battery draining.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is also enabled for reverse charging using Wireless PowerShare – where the S22 Ultra can be used to charge other Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) enabled devices by placing them on the back of the phone.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is actually the first Galaxy S smartphone with built-in stylus support, unlike the S21 Ultra that did use a stylus but was kept separate from the phone. Now embedded in its home in the bottom of the S22 Ultra, the design of the S Pen has been changed to matte for a softer feel and a more stable grip even after using it for long periods. Once the S Pen has been charged from being in its slot, you can use it for a multitude of tasks, including taking pictures, to draw and write down notes or ideas, perform Air actions or switch between other S Pen-compatible devices on the go.
What is the camera like on the S22 Ultra 5G?
The S22 Ultra 5G rear quad camera is almost identical to the Galaxy S21 Ultra camera, barring the raised contour box. Although the 108MP main wide-angle camera, two 10MP telephoto lenses and the 12MP ultrawide sensor are carried over from the S21 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with enhanced zoom capabilities that ensures this is one of the top, possibly even the best, Android phone camera setups available.
As you’d expect, the 3x & 10x optical zoom results in clear, detailed images, even when viewing cropped sections. However, it’s the 30x and 100x Space zoom where the S22 Ultra comes into its own with truly excellent results, partly due to the 100x stabilisation – no more shaky-hand shots.
The S22 Ultra also comes with PDAF (Phase detection autofocus), so that capturing even the fastest moving subjects results in consistently crisp & sharp images.
The wide dynamic range and colour accuracy of the default 10MP sensor on the front camera are brilliant, producing amazing selfies every time. And if needed, the 40MP mode can be activated for that extra, dazzling detail. Portrait mode keeps your face in sharp focus while gently blurring the background – essential for taking the ultimate selfie shots.
Is the S22 Ultra 5G waterproof?
The S22 Ultra is graded with an official IP68 rating, for dust and water resistance, which means this smartphone offers the best level of protection against dirt, dust & water that a mobile device can.
It is important to note that this doesn’t mean the phone is fully waterproof, but it does have the highest level of water resistance.
