Flagship among flagships, the Galaxy S22 Ultra stands alone in Samsung’s new series. If it shares most of its characteristics with the Galaxy S22 and S22 +, it is also Note thanks to the integration of a stylus.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra gave us a hard time during its test. Announced success thanks to its stunning screen, its integrated stylus and multiple photo sensors, it grabs our fifth star thanks to its very good durability score, carried by its promise of software updates for four years. This masks some disparities in terms of real performance: its Exynos 2200 is not quite (at the time of its release at least) at the expected level, and its promises related to night photography are only partly kept . If this is a very good versatile and enduring smartphone as a whole, which finally brings the qualities of a Galaxy Note to a Galaxy S, it makes concessions that are difficult to forget in its price segment.

Points forts

  • Beautiful and bright screen.
  • The stylus is no longer an option.
  • Finally fast charging.
  • Overall photos of excellent quality, especially in 108 Mpx.

Weak points

  • Exynos 2200… surprising.
  • Nightography less convincing than expected.

An alternative

Oppo’s Find X5 Pro is a very convincing successor to an already particularly successful Find X3 Pro. This smartphone does not show off when it comes to photography, not playing the card of the number of megapixels, rather that of software processing. It succeeds and its ability to do well, even very well at both wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle, compensates for a slightly lower optical magnification than its direct competition. For the rest, the Find X5 Pro has a beautiful display, a power certainly not excessive, but sufficient, as well as a good autonomy (not to mention a very practical fast charge). With such a device, Oppo confirms that it deserves its place in the big leagues.
