Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is excellent – but I choose this phone instead

In the run up to the final official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, I was hyped after getting a phone that was supposed to be the spiritual successor of the Galaxy Note phones, which was pretty much killed after the Galaxy Note 20.

And luckily Samsung delivered it with the Galaxy S22 Ultra, nicely mixing the best parts of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, as well as adding some tweaks. With its latest flagship, Samsung has created one of the best Android phones and in fact one of the best phones you can buy right now. Still, I’m overwhelmed.

When I got my fingers in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, I fully expected it would pull me away from an increasingly beloved iPhone 13 Pro, as I am a naturally big Android phone fan. But that did not happen thanks to the amazing consistency of the iPhone 13 Pro experience.

So instead, I expected the Galaxy S22 Ultra to become my favorite Android phone, replacing the excellent but at times tough Google Pixel 6 Pro. After all, I love the design of the S22 Ultra with its expansive flatter, rectangular display that makes it a great display where you can see pretty much everything.
