Best of both worlds: Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra combines the productivity of Note Series with the pro-grade camera of S Series

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is all set to hit the stores starting 11th March with a plethora of features that will blow everyone’s minds and deliver an experience like never before. And while everyone is stoked about the smartphone, there are a set of ardent fans that are especially loud in their praise for the all-new Galaxy S22 Ultra – the Galaxy Note lovers. After all, the new Ultra smartphone is the first flagship in a year and a half to come with the in-built S Pen! Combining the unmatched productivity and creativity the Galaxy Note lineup was adored for with the peak performance that the Galaxy S series is known for, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is a smartphone that offers buyers the best of both worlds! Our own 91mobiles expert, Prateek, sat down with Galaxy Note lovers Hritik Rawat, a Gamer who needs a power-packed experience from his phone and Shaurya Bora, a designer for whom the S Pen acts as a magic wand to fuel his creativity. Both have used several generations of Galaxy Note smartphones, and Prateek asked them what they are excited about the most with the new Galaxy S22 Ultra. Check out what they had to say.

S Pen magic spellbinds Note lovers

There’s no doubt that the thing that has Galaxy Note lovers most excited about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is the built-in S Pen. S Pen was what defined the Note experience, and is finally bundled with the Galaxy S Ultra. Both the ardent Note lovers, Hrithik and Shaurya, were most excited about the inclusion of S Pen. The S Pen is a versatile tool that raises the Galaxy S22 Ultra to new heights. Whether it is taking notes or signing crucial documents, there is no better alternative in the market than the S Pen. S Pen fits right into S for the first time. Allowing the users to eject it in a jiffy to write, sketch or control your phone. Improved latency in Samsung Notes makes every pen stroke feel as natural as ink on paper — and you can convert those hastily written ideas into legible text.

Our guests were enamoured with the new improvements that Samsung has made with S Pen. The S Pen now comes with a dramatically reduced latency at just 2.8ms. This is 70 percent lower than the latency offered by the S Pen tagged along with the Galaxy Note 20 series. With such a drastic improvement, writing and doodling with the S Pen will feel like using pen on paper, with users experiencing no perceptible lag between the input and output.

Immerse yourself in the 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display

To unleash the power of the S Pen, Samsung needed to include a display that could take advantage of it. Galaxy Note fans will be happy to know that the Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with an immersive 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that refreshes at 120Hz. What had our guests most excited about this display is the fact that this is an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, which automatically changes depending on the screen’s content. This allows the Galaxy S22 Ultra to deliver a fluid experience while saving battery life.

Being an artist, our guest Shaurya was excited about the canvas size that this large display provides. He also seemed pretty pumped up about the peak brightness, and he is right, as the Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with Vision Booster hits a mind-boggling 1750 nits at its peak. The Galaxy S22 Ultra packs the brightest smartphone screen ever, which means you can use the smartphone even in the harshest sunlight. It’s no secret that Galaxy S Series has always had the best displays on the market, but with the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung seems to have outdone itself. If you too are a fan of big and beautiful displays, you won’t find a smartphone better than this one.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset brings beastly performance

Another aspect of the phone that had our guests excited was the chipset. Shaurya was especially excited about the powerful performance of this phone, as being a gamer, he needs every ounce of performance a phone can deliver, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra doesn’t disappoint. Powering the smartphone is the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset which is based on the latest 4nm fabrication process. The chipset delivers unhinged performance and can easily tackle anything you can throw at it. Whether you are a productivity nerd running multiple apps at a time or a game addict playing graphics-intensive games at full-tilt, this phone will never break a sweat.
