Considering the base price, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is without a doubt the most premium smartphone in the South Korean catalog. But today, the bill is softening up a bit at Fnac and Darty thanks to a reduction of 160 euros. How to take advantage of it.
If you’re looking for the best Samsung is currently doing, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is the place to go. It is very expensive and it is certainly not this reduction of 160 euros that will make it available for all budgets, but those who can afford to buy it will definitely want to save money.
What to remember about the S22 Ultra
- 6.8-inch AMOLED display (QHD and 120 Hz)
- Improved fast charging: 45W
- Still good camera
Instead of the usual 1,259 euros, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is now available for sale for 1,099 euros on the Fnac and Darty pages. To achieve this price, simply select “pick up in store” and bring an old smartphone back in working order. In addition, you can add a Galaxy Watch 4 worth 369 euros to your basket (Fnac link / Darty link) to get this connected watch for free.

An even more “stylus” design
Already the design of the S21 Ultra was ultra classy and neat, this sequel simply perfects the recipe of the previous model. In fact, we can only applaud a level of finish, overall comfort and flawless solidity. And the fact that the photo module is now built into the hull really adds an even more sober and elegant look than before. In addition, it should be noted that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra now includes an S Pen to replace the Note series where the predecessor was only compatible. The good news is that it’s done smart, not like on the Z Fold 3, as the smartphone offers a port to store the pen directly. The latter has an amazing responsiveness, with even little haptic feedback as a bonus when it touches the screen.
As usual, the Samsung panel is of excellent quality. Nothing is missing, especially with a brightness at the top, a colorimetric coverage to die for and a calibration close to perfection. Besides that, it should still be noted that the diagonal extends up to 6.8 inches, the maximum definition is 3080 x 1440 pixels, and that the refresh rate is adaptive from 10 to 120 Hz. It’s true that we encountered some screen errors during our testing, but be aware that an update page has fixed the issue.
Improved fast charging efficiency
Before we talk about raw performance, it should be noted that the camera is again very good. Admittedly, the S22 Ultra is not as accurate as an iPhone when it comes to capturing reality faithfully, but it blows away all the competition when it comes to judging a phone’s versatility in images thanks to its flight of sensors. The 108 megapixel sensor is still just as efficient in many situations, the X3 and X10 optical zooms are very clean and the few software additions (improved night mode, stability, etc.) further enhance the all-too-positive overall impression. We would certainly have appreciated a bigger gap between this smartphone and the S21 Ultra, but we are not going to quarrel when it comes to expertise.
Power, the Galaxy S22 Ultra clearly has it under the hood with its Exynos 2100 chip and 8GB of RAM. It therefore easily meets all the needs you may have for a phone in 2022, such as enjoying an updated software interface without braking, whether you are surfing the internet, playing a video in high definition, even though several applications are running in the background. However, it must be admitted that on the video game part, the South Korean premium smartphone is a little behind compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, with poor heat management. What we appreciate, however, is the improvement of the fast charging system which goes from 25 to 45 W, which allows you to go from 0 to 100% in 1 hour. Of course, it is not on a par with the current competition, but the improvement should be noted. The 5000 mAh battery will last you one day, but no longer.
