Samsung Galaxy S22+ 5G Mobile Phone 128GB SIM Free Android Smartphone Pink Gold
About this deal
Either way, that’s a supremely expensive smartphone - but then again, Samsung’s S-series devices aren’t designed for people on a budget.
Samsung Galaxy S22+ 5G Mobile Phone 128GB SIM Free Android
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus comes with Android 12, with Samsung’s One UI laid over the top. At the S22 launch, Samsung pledged that its new phones would get at least four years of software updates, which will take you to Android 16 in 2026.
Aside from a bigger battery and a larger screen, is there anything else that separates the Galaxy S22 Plus from the regular model?
That’s not 45W charging, and we’re not the only reviewers who’ve found issues with Samsung’s claims of 45W charging. It seems that the powering speed is closer to 20W, which really isn’t good for a phone that costs this much. If there’s something that does make us narrow our eyes in doubt, it’s the charging speed. Samsung claims that the phone charges at 45W, a figure that’s hard for average users to test given that the phone doesn’t come with an in-box charger. But when we used an 80W charger on the phone, it still took over two hours to power from empty to full.

And in many other areas, this is a powerful phone, with a top-end chipset, decent battery life and great main camera. We also have to commend Samsung for being one of the few phone companies putting out vibrantly colored phones - we tested a pink S22 Plus, and other options include green, blue and violet. How many companies are putting out pink phones these days? The Galaxy S22 Plus went on sale February 25 in the US, March 3 in Australia and March 11 in the UK.One of the strongest aspects of the S22 Plus is certainly its camera: While the main sensor is a 10MP (f/2.2) one, the rear camera module on the S22 Plus has the same colour as the metal body and consist of a 50MP wide (f/1.8), 12MP ultrawide (f/2.2) and a 10MP telephoto (f/2.4) sensor with an impressive 3x optical zoom. The main sensor is larger this year to get more light in. This, on paper, should translate to much better nighttime performance too, but they are still not exactly where we want them to be due to some white balance issues. Generally, the photos are crisp and bright, yet the colour accuracy is still not as good as the Google Pixel 6 Pro. On the other hand, the telephoto performance is simply brilliant and a massive improvement over the S21 Plus. Display and Chipset: Simply Premium Naturally, one of the S22 Plus’ biggest differentiators is the battery size. The S22 Plus comes with a large 4,500mAh battery, while the S22 has to make do with a cut-down 3,700mAh cell. Sadly, while I’m yet to test the regular version, the S22 Plus’ stamina doesn’t paint a positive picture.

The Exynos 2200 performed well in our benchmarks, although the speed gains are negligible compared to last year. In the Geekbench 5 single- and multicore CPU tests, the S22 Plus scored 1,144 and 3,488, which, as you can see from the graph below, is pretty much identical to the previous Exynos 2100 found inside the S21 Plus.It’s a similar story in terms of graphics processing. Topping out at the screen’s maximum refresh rate, the GFXBench Manhattan 3 onscreen score is flawless, although the off-screen result is actually slightly weaker than last year’s model. While the resolution is pretty average, the S22 Plus wins some points in other display areas. Its max brightness is very high at 1,750 nits, and thanks to the AMOLED screen, contrast is impressive. Cameras Wired USB-C charging speeds have increased to 45W from 25W, which in our tests achieved 50% charge from zero in roughly 25 minutes. Wireless charging is the same as last year, however, rated at just 15W, and yet again the phone can reverse wireless charge compatible devices such as the Galaxy Buds 2 and Galaxy Watch 4. You won’t find a wall plug in the box, though – only a single USB-C to USB-C charging cable. Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus review: Display
