Galaxy S22 Ultra Exynos and Snapdragon variants take different pictures


Last updated: April 26th, 2022 at 20:10 UTC+02:00

The Exynos and Snapdragon Galaxy S22 Ultra variants are almost identical, but not quite. The two chipsets have similar performance levels on paper, but they don’t always exhibit the same behavior. Even in the area of mobile photography, the Exynos and Snapdragon Galaxy S22 Ultra variants differ and don’t produce the exact same results.

Picture processing on the Galaxy S22 Ultra is handled differently by the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets. Even though both smartphone variants have the same camera hardware, they don’t always produce the same shots. Sometimes the Exynos 2200 variant comes out on top. Other times, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 takes the lead.

In some instances of zoom cropping, the Exynos Galaxy S22 Ultra performs poorer than the Snapdragon variant, with more noise and loss of detail. Then again, the Snapdragon can also be outshined by the Exynos model, as cropped photos show more ringing, moiré, and loss of fine detail in some Galaxy S22 Ultra Snapdragon samples. (via DxOMark).

Regardless of chipset, the Galaxy S22 Ultra features a 108MP wide camera with laser autofocus, PDAF, and OIS, a 12MP ultra-wide camera with PDAF, a 10MP telephoto sensor with OIS, PDAF, and 3x optical zoom, and a 10MP periscope telephoto camera with PDAF, OIS, and 10x optical zoom capabilities. The rear-facing camera can capture 8K videos.

The selfie camera has PDAF and a 40MP resolution and can record 4K videos. Mobile photography enthusiasts can take the camera to the next level with Samsung’s Expert RAW app. The latter opens the Galaxy S22 Ultra camera setup to new pro-grade capabilities for fine-tuning.

As for which Galaxy S22 Ultra variant is better, both are fantastic. But according to these tests, the Exynos flagship is better at zoom and video recording, while the Snapdragon model is slightly superior in capturing stills.
