Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale: Samsung Galaxy S22 Priced at ₹52,999

Launched in the month of February 2022, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series was a huge announcement that surprised everyone. This launch introduced us to three of the best Android smartphones yet, the Samsung Galaxy S22, Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Although the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S22 Plus are the better versions of the S22, our biggest deal of the year phone is nowhere less than any competitor in its price range.

As Amazon will give the biggest discount on the Samsung Galaxy S22 mobile phone in the Great Indian Festival Sale, people are curious to know if this phone is either worth buying or not. No worries, we will help you with our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S22 in this article.

Once you think that it is good enough for you, make sure to Get the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G on Amazon.

Processor and Performance of the Samsung Galaxy S22

The Galaxy S22 is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is second only to the 8+ Gen 1 chipset when it comes to overall performance. Otherwise, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor in the Galaxy S22 will give you no trouble at all. Instead, you will be pleased with the smooth and fast performance that it will offer. Also, the SD 8 Gen 1 chipset is based on 4nm fabrication technology, which improves the battery life too; though we will talk about S22’s battery backup separately.

Galaxy S22 Camera Performance: Best Camera Phone in Amazon Great Indian Sale 2022?

About the camera, just try and find a phone that gives you a better, more consistent camera setup in this price range than the S22 and the iPhone 13. Yup, both these smartphones are usually seen priced around the same range and we can even call them each others’ rivals. So the Samsung Galaxy S22 has a triple camera setup that will not disappoint you in any manner. 

It has a 50 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, and a 10 MP telephoto camera. All these camera sensors on the Galaxy S22 perform exactly how you would expect them to…probably better than that sometimes. When compared to the iPhone 13, the S22 offers slightly better images, which is a subjective opinion and may vary for other users. 

Though when it comes to videography performance, the iPhone 13 takes the lead. But hey, that does not mean that the Samsung Galaxy S22 lacks anything; it is even one of the best smartphones out there if we talk about video shooting. Also, the Galaxy S22 has a 10 MP selfie camera that performs fabulously well in almost any condition.

This makes the S22 one of the better camera phones on huge discounts in the Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale.

The Battery Issue in the Samsung Galaxy S22

Yeah, one of the biggest…or probably the biggest problem in this otherwise gorgeous phone is its battery. It has a 3700 mAh battery that sounds more than the iPhone 13 but trust me, the battery backup that you get in both these smartphones is miles apart. The Samsung Galaxy S22, as the user reviews and my own usage suggest, has trouble lasting even a single day. 

There is a reason why Android phones come with bigger batteries like 6000/7000 mAh while iPhones can do even with a 3500 mAh battery. This is the difference in their optimization. No matter whether the Android OS is better than the iOS or vice versa, one thing that we cannot deny is that every iPhone is optimized much better than any Android phone.

This is why the 3700 mAh battery in the Samsung Galaxy S22 is a huge problem. Though, it can be dealt with if you can manage to charge it at least 2 times a day.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Display: Best Display Phone in Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale?

One thing that I liked the most about the S22 lineup is the fact that all of these mobile phones have almost identical displays. The Galaxy S22 comes with a 120 Hz adaptive refresh rate Dynamic AMOLED 2X display; the display’s name is longer than the battery backup I guess. 

This display is the best one that has been used till now on any smartphone. Even when you compare it to the iPhone 13, it does not have that big notch. Rather, you get a very tiny punch-hole at the top of the display which is not even noticeable sometimes. The S22’s display gives you crisp and punchy colors, along with a bezel-less experience. So, this is that one aspect where no smartphone comes even close to the Samsung Galaxy S22 in this price range.

Now that you have a brief idea of what the Galaxy S22 is like, you might be able to make a decision about whether to buy it in the Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale or not. Here are all of its specs for your reference:

Rs 52,999


Okay, so this is everything that you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S22. Now the question is whether you should buy the Samsung Galaxy S22 in the Amazon Great Indian Festival 2022 or not. Well, the smartphone is not so bad as we discussed earlier. Its only problem is its battery. For a price of Rs 52,999, it may not provide the best specifications but, Samsung is known to give a better overall experience. So if you can manage with a smaller battery, then the Samsung Galaxy S22 can be the best deal for you in the Amazon Great Indian Sale.

True, S20FE is one of my favorite phones too, except for its update part. Also, S21FE is complete in itself, but the Exynos processor is something that stops me from recommending it to someone.

I have been using S20+, powered by the Exynos processor for nearly 2 years now. I am not at all into mobile gaming, but for day to day use, including heavy usage on photos/videos (esp during family vacations) is my typical use case. I have found the phone to be perfect for anyone who wants to consume media/entertainment content (brilliant screen and loud, clear stereo speakers) as well as do any usual tasks (call quality is A+, social media, multiple apps usage, etc.).

I have never really cared/realized whether it wad SD or Exynos. I do wish however the battery drain was lesser. I have a workaround which works great for me, but should have been spot-on out of the box.

I would still say that if you are a casual user (who is more into better camera vs. heavy gaming), don't let the negativity around Exynos hold you back.

Cheers!

S22 has poor battery. SD gen 1. 

S21FE seems like a no brainer for Samsung fans who have 35-40k as budget

True that.
But I'd think twice before buying a phone with an Exynos chipset.

I would not be so sure about that. S22 offers a better camera, performance, display, speakers, and more updates. Yeah S20's battery is a bit bigger in capacity, but the SD 865 may not be as efficient as the 8 Gen 1.  Also, what about the Android updates? All in all, the S22 makes more sense than its predecessors, but its only problem (in my opinion) is its battery backup.

That's the only issue with the S20FE. The fact that it has only 1 more year of OS updates available - the next one in 2023 will be its last update, though security updates will continue till 2024. 

I'd vote for the S21 FE for the amazing value it offers at the 32K price point (if you are heavy gamer, then probably stay clear of any Samsung device IMO).

If it is under 40k, then only it qualifies for all this build-up before sale.

True, though my guess is around 50K since that is what the iPhone 13 costs in the Flipkart BBD. So both these platforms may compete against each other. Though I'm not sure about it.

I have been using S20+, powered by the Exynos processor for nearly 2 years now. I am not at all into mobile gaming, but for day to day use, including heavy usage on photos/videos (esp during family vacations) is my typical use case. I have found the phone to be perfect for anyone who wants to consume media/entertainment content (brilliant screen and loud, clear stereo speakers) as well as do any usual tasks (call quality is A+, social media, multiple apps usage, etc.).

I have never really cared/realized whether it wad SD or Exynos. I do wish however the battery drain was lesser. I have a workaround which works great for me, but should have been spot-on out of the box.

I would still say that if you are a casual user (who is more into better camera vs. heavy gaming), don't let the negativity around Exynos hold you back.

An Exynos chipset is good too if you are a casual user.

Read somewhere S20 FE 5G model was released in India in 2022, so can expect updates already till Android 14. Is this true or some made up thing for views and clicks. Your opinion?

Nope, it was launched in 2021. So not sure if we'll see  Android 14 in it.

benchmarks for Exynos 2100 r better than d SD 865. Probably the gaming issue is more due to better optimization for SD by developers. Agree, using an exynos based A50 for last almost 3 years myself n no issues at all.

Absolutely right The only difference between S21FE and S22 is the processor and a 50MP camera vs the 12MP. And a larger battery.
