I have long wanted to upgrade my phones since I broke my Huawei P30 Pro last year and my Samsung S10+’s screen started being less responsive. And while the iPhone 13 did appeal to me, I patiently waited for the Samsung S22 when rumors started of this line having an S Pen.
Last February 09, Samsung’s unveiled its S22 lineup and true enough, the Ultra did have an S Pen. Moreover, its night shots are so impressive that they even have a dedicated video on Nightography in their YouTube channel.
I finally got my hands on my new phone last night, but since I arrived home late, I tested its camera only this morning.
The above was taken at around 5:30 AM when the skyline was still dark. I was immediately impressed by how noise-free my shot was.
Here’s another photo taken at around the same time and at the same spot.
And these night shots were taken just earlier. It was a very cloudy day today, so nighttime arrived earlier than usual. It’s darker, too.
Again, I was impressed at how well this phone takes good photos during low light, though I find the lighting too warm.
The above coconut-dotted beach was my favorite from this set because of the purple-hued skyline and the clear details of the coconut’s fringes.
All photos taken in Plantation Bay using a Samsung S22 Ultra.
