There are brands that raise passions. Because beyond specific specifications or budgets, when buying a mobile phone, brand loyalty is a factor that counts. Samsung is one of them: if you are a fan of the Korean firm and you have to renew your phone, in this article we look for the best Samsung mobile of 2022 based on different criteria.


How to choose a Samsung phone

Although the february and august appointments of the Korean firm arouse interest for the renewal of its high range, Samsung’s catalog is quite large and especially strong in the mid-range.

Thus, folding models apart, we distinguish the Galaxy S and GalaxyNote in the noble zone, the A range one step below and we end with the M family. Whichever you choose, there are certain particularities to take into account when choosing a Samsung mobile:

  • display technology: One of the differential features of Samsung is its ambitious proposal in terms of screens with AMOLED as the protagonist of its catalog. Thus, even the simple M21 integrates a panel with this technology.

  • Samsung is one of the few firms that has its own processors, the Exynos, which continue to evolve in power and efficiency. However, in its product portfolio, the Exynos coexist with the established Snapdragon from Qualcomm and the MediaTek in the more modest models. Although in the high range the own processors perform well, in the average betting on a Qualcomm chip is to be on the safe side in terms of power and energy consumption

  • Autonomy. Currently, Samsung is strongly committed to large autonomies using large amperages, a feature that shines especially in the more modest models. It reinforces its proposal to spend less time in the plug for its fast charges, notable even if we bet on the mid-range.

  • Tastes aside, the customization layer is One UI, fast, fluid and stable. If you are from Samsung, we assume that you will like its large stock of standard apps. Whichever model you choose, that comes out of the box with at least Android 10 with One UI.

For me the best phone in value for money is...

When we tried it, we highlighted the extra that the refreshment supposes, how comfortable and robust it is and that its large battery invites us to “forget” about the plug.

The good thing, if you are a fan of Samsung and looking for the best camera, is that the Korean firm has several models on our list of phones with the best camera that we have tested in recent months. The bad thing is that you will have to go to the high range. The response from our editors has been unanimous: Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (1109 euros with coupon)

Without a doubt, this terminal is among the best mobile devices of the moment in all its sections, and obviously, also in mobile photography. The company has decided to keep the camera configuration that we saw in the S21 Ultra, although there is a change in the size of your sensors and the result is a camera is absolutely sensational.
