While it’s not uncommon to see Samsung release a mild upgrade to the previous year’s phone, the S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra are surprisingly close in many key areas. If you’re curious which phone comes out ahead, you may be surprised by the answer.
– The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the first phone since the Note 20 to use the S Pen with a storage slot.– On the S22 Ultra, Samsung moved the microphone hole next to the SIM tray.– In 1988, Samsung released its first mobile phone with the SGH-100.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra have IP68 certification. They are resistant to dust and water, but aren’t completely waterproof. The phones can withstand submersion in fresh water up to 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes.
Despite that, the S22 Ultra comes with less RAM on the base model, which is a negative if you plan to hold onto the smartphone for 3 to 4 years. The Galaxy S22 Ultra sports a newer version of Android and Samsung’s One UI out of the box as well.
