Should you buy the Samsung Galaxy S22 in 2023?

Samsung Galaxy S22 is definitely a good phone thanks to the immersive AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC which can handle day-to-day tasks without any problem, and the phone has recently received the Android 13 OS, which brings tons of new features. The cameras are still very capable of clicking good pictures in well-lit conditions and the software optimisations have largely improved night photography as well. There’s a 10MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.

However, on the flip side, the battery life is pretty ordinary and it can’t even last one entire day. You will have to charge the phone for the second time on any given day. So barring this shortcoming, if you are looking for a compact-sized phone and one that is quite powerful, the Galaxy S22 is a pretty good option to consider.
