The Galaxy S22 is Samsung’s entry-level flagship smartphone, at a lower price than the S22+ and S22 Ultra. Now you can get one for $598.49, a 25% discount from the original MSRP.

The Galaxy S22 is equipped with a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a 2,700mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port for data and charging. The entry-level model on sale right now has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, but the more expensive versions double the storage to 256 GB. Unfortunately, there’s no headphone jack, but that’s a rare sight on flagship phones at this point.

Samsung's entry-level flagship phone for 2022 is an excellent purchase, especially at this price.

There are three rear cameras, including a 12 MP ultra-wide lens, a 50 MP primary camera, and a 10 MP telephoto lens capable of 3x optical zoom. That’s not as groundbreaking as the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 10x optical zoom, but you can still get some incredible photos out of this phone.

Our sister site ReviewGeek gave the phone an 8/10 in its Samsung Galaxy S22 review, thanks to the device’s best-in-class performance, premium hardware, and camera quality. The smaller frame means battery life isn’t as great as most larger phones, though, and the fast wired charging can’t quite hit the same speeds as phones like the OnePlus 10T. If you buy one, be sure to check out our roundup of the best Galaxy S22 cases.
