    Unboxing The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

    The Samsung flagship Galaxy S22 series is finally here and they are more powerful and stylish than ever. We’ll be talking about what’s in the box for S22 Ultra in this post along with our brief impression of the phone.


    What’s In The Box

    In the box – 1x S22 Ultra, 1x Stylus, 1x SIM Eject Pin (not shown in pic), 1x Charging Cable (not shown in pic)

    The contents in the box are the standard phone, pin, and cable. The plan to exclude power bricks from the packaging does not seem likely to change anytime soon and those wanting to make full use of the phone’s 45w charging capabilities will need to fork out some extra from their pocket for the power brick.


    What’s In The Phone

    The S22 Ultra is armed with an Octa-Core (1×3.00 GHz Cortex-X2 & 3×2.50 GHz Cortex-A710 & 4×1.80 GHz Cortex-A510) processor, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4nm) chipset, an Adreno 730 GPU, and comes in the option of 8GB/128GB, 12GB/256GB, and 12GB/512GB in Malaysia.

    S Series Absorbing The Note Series?

    S21 Ultra’s bulky camera bump.
    S22 Ultra’s flat-surfaced camera compartment

    With a Stylus safely docked in its compartment, the S22 Ultra looked every bit like a Note phone at first glance. In fact, the S22 Ultra’s design itself has strayed from its predecessor the S21 Ultra’s but I’m not complaining. The S21 Ultra looked bulky because of its rough camera bump but that has since been replaced with a smooth-surface camera compartment for the S22 Ultra.

    The S21’s round edges around the phone are now smartly trimmed to a sharper-look edge, which is again, a reminisce of the Note series.


    Experience So Far

    Day-to-day use with the phone has been fun and productive, especially with the return of the Stylus and the Note-liked convenience it provides. The screen displays beautiful and bright colours and the 120Hz experience is something I’m never tired of.

    The phone gives off a sturdy and reliable vibe whenever I hold it and though its thickness is the same as that of the S21 Ultra, the S22 Ultra somehow felt slimmer in comparison thanks to the flat camera housing.

    I really like the S22 Ultra’s cameras and here’s hoping I get to play with it some more soon.

    I am tempted to talk more about the camera functions but because 75% of my household is infected with Covid, I too have to join them in quarantine. With that said, I haven’t actually been able to bring the phone outside and flex its camera capabilities but nevertheless, I did manage to take some pictures with it whenever I went outside to pick up deliveries of food and groceries.

    I’ll be back to talk more about the phone in the full review coming in the next few days. In it, I’ll share with you about the phone’s performance in handling multiple apps, games, its battery life, cameras, and of course the functions and reliability of the S-Pen in today’s trend of usage.
