The Galaxy S22/S22+ vs Galaxy S22 Ultra camera shootout you need to see


Last updated: April 13th, 2022 at 19:35 UTC+02:00

The entire Galaxy S22 series boasts some impressive camera chops, but when you look at the specs, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has the clear lead. With an additional zoom camera, a 108MP main camera, an ultra-wide camera that boasts autofocus tech, and a 40MP selfie camera, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has one of the best on-paper camera setups of any phone, Samsung or otherwise.

But how much of a difference is there in the real world? Do the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ lag behind the Galaxy S22 Ultra by a whole lot, or are they closer in imaging performance than you would expect? Those are the questions we set out to answer in our Galaxy S22/S22+ vs Galaxy S22 Ultra camera comparison, which is now live on our YouTube channel.

Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S22 Ultra camera shootout: Zoom’s the main differentiator

Let’s just suffice it to say that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+’s photos can surprisingly be as good as those taken by the Galaxy S22 Ultra in many situations. Numbers aren’t everything, after all, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s main advantage is that it gives you proper optical zoom at 10x and beyond, something the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ just can’t match… except when they can?

Well, as mentioned already, you might be surprised by some results from the smaller models in the test (or not as impressed by the Galaxy S22 Ultra as you would hope to be), so go ahead and check the entire camera shootout in the video below and let us know what you think!
