I have never been so impressed.
My name is Isabella and I woke up on a sullen and cold Saturday morning to a surprise at my door. Samsung sent me six phones from their new Galaxy S22 range.
Here I am showing off my new toys.
I decided to upgrade my current 4 year old phone and pick a new one to get through the weekend. I was spoiled for choice with the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra.
Like any good phone enthusiast, I first looked at the datasheet. But, like any good social media follower, the camera is one of the most important factors for me. And the Night Photography function was finally going to give relief to my night photos and videos.
I finally chose the Galaxy S22+ in rose gold because the weather was terrible outside, and I needed something bright at hand to make people forget that it was snowing Again in May. You can also choose from colors like phantom black, phantom white, or green, depending on your mood.
At 6.6 inches, it was the perfect screen for me. But all phones in the Galaxy S22 lineup are created and packaged with recycled materialsso in the end, any choice was a wise choice!
Inspired by the new spark of color in my life (thank you, rose gold 🙏), I went in search of a little more color to brighten up the day.
And I knew exactly where to go to test the Galaxy 22+ camera I had heard so much about (the rear cameras have multiple resolutions of 50MP + 10MP + 12MP, FYI!)
I’m not a photographer…but the flowers from the corner store did the trick.
I only had to activate portrait mode (which adds bokeh to the background while making the object in focus stand out) to take high-resolution photos worthy of a wedding photographer. Oh yeah! OK…I think I’m going to quit my regular job*.
* It’s a joke!
I was so mesmerized by these tulips, but I was even more impressed with how well they were captured by the Galaxy S22 and S22+’s 50MP main camera and the S22 Ultra’s 108MP camera.
Thanks to the stunning high-resolution 120Hz display, images are truly vibrant and so vivid they practically jump off the screen!
I liked these photos so much that I had to buy these tulips, take them home to admire them all Saturday.
They even match the picture my mother just painted for me!
After a quiet Saturday, I woke up on Sunday with things to DO. Without a notebook, I grabbed the Galaxy S22 Ultra to make a to-do list to help me get through my day.
When you pull out the built-in S Pen from the bottom of the phone while it’s sleeping, it automatically opens the Samsung Notes app.
That’s all first from the S range which incorporates an S Pen stylus, making it easy to jot down ideas, notes, scribbles, manifestos, love letters, and more. I can even send them to my Galaxy Tab S8 without ever putting my S Pen down. Let your thoughts run wild!
I was about to knock things off my to-do list when my girlfriend snatched the phone from me.
The theme of the weekend was clearly that of flowers. Look at those adorable little flowers she doodled. We love that the S Pen stylus can write, help with navigation, photo/video editing and doodling!
We both found the S Pen to be very satisfying, with that pen-to-paper feel, and incredibly easy to use.
A perfectly fun activity to start the day. Now on to the to-do list.
But, first of all…dinner!
I took these shots using the “Power” photo setting of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. * Mouth watering *.
No, but, seriously, let’s move on now on my to-do list.
I watered my plants and spotted a few new leaves, while talking to my mom on the phone. She can talk and talk, but when our two-hour conversation was over, the battery was still at 97% thanks to the smart long-lasting battery of the Galaxy S22 Ultra (but we will come back to this later!)*.
* I’m not going to tell him that, because that will only encourage longer phone calls.
I waited until evening to install my terrace, because I wanted to switch from the Galaxy S22 Ultra to the Galaxy S22+ to test Night Photography on it.
I dusted the chairs, swept up some leaves (or so I thought), and hung up my lights.
But, dear reader, it should be noted that I took the photo on the left in complete darkness. I don’t even have a light for my balcony behind! The Night Photography setting, which also works when capturing video, instantly brightened the image (look at the photo on the right without this setting!), and made me realize that I really had done a terrible job believing I was getting rid of those leaves.
It’s my birthday week, and like a true Aries, I’ve started decorating my inner space so I can celebrate my birthday for seven full days.
I added some balloons, hung silver stars, turned on my disco light, turned off all the lights, and took some nighttime photos to kick off the last year of my twenties.
The Galaxy S22 line really gave my otherwise boring weekend a boost. I was able to take photos, share them with my friends on social media, and have fun checking things off my to-do list, all with my new favorite S Pen. Click here to discover the entire Galaxy S22 range.
