The good: The processing speed of this phone is second to none. Don't let anyone fool you, the size matters. This is a nicely designed phone with large screen and substantial weight to it that can be used a self defense item when you find yourself alone in the dark trying to find your car on a large parking lot. The settings and customization is vast as you can adjust whatever you can think of on this phone. The display and camera is simply second to none. The not-so- good: We purchased two of these phones, one for me and one for my wife (her is a Note 20 Ultra which i am assuming is the same exact unit as S22 this year). First thing that shocked me is how easily they break. After one week of ownership we dropped the phone on the concrete from our toddlers stroller pocket and the screen cracked across the entire phone. The phone was in the case and the drop was not that bad. So much for the super tough gorilla glass or whatever Samsung is advertising on these flagship phones that cost an arm and a leg. Fixing the cracked glass on this phone costs approximate like an average brand new smartphone. We fixed it once and decided to buy this super tough case that is commercialized all over the internet (i will leave the brand name out) and what do you know, even with this wonder case the phone was not able to survive a two feet drop on the garage floor from the seat of a sedan car. The display glass broke severely and the back cracked across. What in the world is going on with the super tough glass advertised on these phones?? Well, back to repair shop and this time the price was even higher because they had to replace the rear cover that supposedly has the battery block on it. Enough about the toughness of this phone, its clear enough that this phone is not tough at all, as real life shows, not well controlled laboratory tests. My second concern is the battery life. Why in the world the battery only lasts one day under normal use? By "one day" i mean morning to evening. I never play games, just check my emails, messages and not even have a social media account of any kind to be always on it. Battery needs a lot of improvement. But this last one takes the cake and i think is actually comical. I opened the box and there was no charger. Seriously?? In this price range you cant include a cheap charger?? I get it, you spent all these money to develop an unbreakable glass and long lasting battery but, how is one supposed to charge this flagship phone when a charger is not included? I strongly recommend buying warranty with these flagship phones as real life experience shows they are extremely expansive to repair and they are simply not durable enough to survive real life tests.

This phone is the worst I have ever bought. I am a loyal Samsung phone owner. I have been buying their phones for the past 20 years, every kind from Flip Phones to the Galaxy Fold 3. This phone was a replacement for my Fold 3 the inner screen went out in & Asurion couldn't replace it. I decided to just go back to a regular smartphone & chose this one. I wished I would have never bought it, it's been problems since day one. Everything from dropped signal, no signal, static while dialing, & the latest the phone refuses to notify while on vibrate. I now wished I would have replaced my Fold with another Fold. The only thing decent on this phone is the camera, it has an awesome camera. The thing is I did not buy a phone to just take a pictures, I bought it to have a line of communication. I am a very disappointed loyal Samsung Customer.

Battery life is not a advertised

5 out of 5 rating

Cmama · 1 day ago

The phone would be so much better if the battery life was what was advertised. This battery is absolutely the worse ihave seen in years. If I use my phone and all it's features I get half aday of battery. Poor battery life is the biggest shortcoming. if it really did last into the next day as advertised this phone would be amazing. If I had known my phone was going to die halfway thought the day from normal use I would have just stuck with my s21

Excellent Flagship Phone!

Andrew · 2 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Upgraded from the S20 FE midrange phone to finally the flagship S22 Ultra. Definitely worth it!! You can tell the difference. Amazing speed, very smooth and very customizable. Yes I did notice the battery wasting just a tad bit faster than my old phone. But, for those complaining may not know how to optimize the phone's battery to get better use out of it. There's tons of videos on YouTube to help you out. Definitely recommend the Galaxy S22 Ultra!

NOT AS GOOD AS ANY MOTOROLA PHONE

2 out of 5 rating

Wendy · 2 days ago

Have had this phone for a couple weeks. It always requires an extra step to do what you want unlike other Android phones. Even turning on the flashlight is a pain. You can't just shake the phone to turn it on and you can't put a widget for it on your homescreen. The camera is good but using the phone is even a pain because you have to keep choosing whether you want to text phone etc. I do NOT recommend this Samsung Ultra S22 phone.

First time I've ever been unsatisfied with a new phone.

EpicAngel · 3 days ago

Please please...if your on the fence about this phone because of all the bad press and bad reviews, take my advise and pass on this phone. I agonized o wr the purchase for months. So much bad press...the phone is slow they say (TRUE) The games play super slow (True again) The 5 G doesn't work (true sadly) Overall slow clunky phonethat feels like a step 10 years + backwards in technology (True) I was leaving on vacation when I bought this phone and now I'm outside of my 30 day return. I've never returned a phone or not been happy with the new version but this phone is a total dud.do yourself a favor and go with the iPhone if your on the fence cause this phone SUX! ONLY GOOD THING IS THE PHONE....

Good phone

3 out of 5 rating

RassBariaw · 3 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

1. Phone comes with 12 gig of RAM. Priced at $1,400 this phone should have come with 16 gigs of RAM; especially as the S21 did. 2. The vibrate notification is significantly weaker from the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S20 FE. Bring back (increase) power of the vibrate. 3. The speakers could also use an upgrade. #1 & 2 are very important. 4. The Galaxy Note 10 came with a thick screen cover out of the box. The same cover should have been placed on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. 5. At $1,400 provide a charger, charger cord, and wired headphones at no extra cost. 6. Samsung online support is terrible.
