Samsung’s flagship S22 smartphones have been hitting UK stores recently, and they’re really giving the iPhone 13 a run for its money.

Beautiful, ultra-high-definition display with low latency, impeccable 8K recording capabilities, and the latest hardware for some serious gaming on the go, the S22 lineup is the pinnacle of smart-tech right now.

If you’ve been struggling to find the best deals on one of these brand-new smartphones, fear not, we’ve got you covered.

Note: All items were in stock and correctly priced at the time of writing. Due to issues with supply chains and high demand, some units may be temporarily unavailable.

S21 vs S22: What’s the Difference?

First and foremost, there are some great QOL changes on the new S22. Namely, the loss of Samsung’s “Glastic” which felt, admittedly, a little cheap.

Instead, the S22 has a fantastic Gorilla Glass back, with a sharp, aluminium body, offering the best hand-feel of any Samsung phone to date. Despite the S22 having a slightly smaller screen, it still has a pristine AMOLED HD screen that really pops.

Of course, the peak of the S22 line, the S22 Ultra, is significantly larger than the standard S22, which much sharper resolution, better battery, and an absurdly good 108MP quad camera.

Next, there’s the all-new Snapdragon Gen 8 chipset, with excellent high-intensity gaming performance and amazingly ultra-low latency and 120Hz refresh rates.

Samsung's new Telephoto lens is possibly the most impressive feature of the S22 line, with possibly the most powerful zoom on a smartphone ever.

What's the best S22 model for gaming?

Undoubtedly, the S22 Ultra is the be-all-end-all solution for gaming on the go. It's bigger, has better battery life, more RAM, and a sharper screen.
