I tried the new Samsung Galaxy S22 and it really brightened my weekend: Samsung Newsroom Canada

I have never been so impressed.

My name is Isabella and I woke up on a dark and cold Saturday morning with a surprise at my door. Samsung sent me six phones from the new Galaxy S22 range.

Here I am showing my new toys.

I decided to upgrade my current 4 year old phone and pick a new one to make it through the weekend. I was spoiled for choice with the Galaxy S22, S22 + and S22 Ultra.

Like any good phone enthusiast, I first looked at the datasheet. But, like any good social media follower, the camera is one of the most important factors to me. And the Night Snapshot feature would finally bring relief to my night photos and videos.

In the end I chose the Galaxy S22 + in rose gold because the weather was terrible outside and I needed something bright at hand to make people forget it was snowing still in May. You can also choose from colors like ghost black, ghost white or green, depending on your mood.

At 6.6 inches, it was the perfect screen for me. But all the phones in the Galaxy S22 range are created and packaged with recycled materials[1]so in the end, any choice was a wise choice!

Inspired by the new spark of color in my life (thank you, rose gold 🙏), I went in search of a little more color to brighten up the day.

And I knew Exactly where to go to test the Galaxy 22+ camera I had heard so much about (rear cameras have multiple resolutions of 50MP + 10MP + 12MP, for your information!)

I’m not a photographer … but the flowers in the corner shop worked.

I just had to activate portrait mode (which adds bokeh to the background by making the object stand out in focus) to take high-resolution photos worthy of a wedding photographer. Oh yeah! OK …I think I will quit my regular job*.

* It’s a joke!

I was so mesmerized by these tulips, but I was even more impressed with how well they were captured by the Galaxy S22 and S22 +’s 50MP main camera and the S22 Ultra’s 108MP camera.

Thanks to the stunning 120Hz high resolution display, the images are truly vibrant and so vivid that they practically pop off the screen!

I liked these photos so much that I had to buy these tulips, take them home to admire them all Saturday.

They also match the image my mom just painted for me!

After a quiet Saturday, Sunday I woke up with things to DO. Without a notebook, I took the Galaxy S22 Ultra to make a to-do list to help me get through my day.

When you take out the built-in S Pen from the bottom of the phone while it’s idle, the Samsung Notes app opens automatically.

That’s all first of the S range that incorporates an S Pen stylus, making it easy to jot down ideas, notes, doodles, posters, love letters and more. I can even send them to my Galaxy Tab S8 without ever putting my S Pen down. Let your thoughts run wild!

I was about to cross things off my to-do list when my girlfriend snatched my phone.

The weekend theme was clearly flowers. Look at those adorable little flowers he scribbled. We love that the S Pen stylus can write, help with navigation, photo / video editing and doodling!

We both found the S Pen very satisfying, with that pen-to-paper feel and incredibly easy to use.

A perfectly fun activity to start the day. Now let’s move on to the to-do list.

But first of all… dinner!

I took these shots using the “Power” photo’s setting Galaxy S22 Ultra. * Mouth watering *.

No, but seriously, let’s move on now on my to-do list.

I watered my plants and noticed some new leaves while talking to my mom on the phone. She can talk and talk, but when our two-hour conversation was over, the battery was still 97% thanks to the long-lasting smart battery of the Galaxy S22 Ultra (but we’ll come back to this later!) *.

* I won’t tell him, as that will only encourage longer phone calls.

I waited until the evening to set up my terrace, because I wanted to switch from the Galaxy S22 Ultra to the Galaxy S22 + to test night photography on it.

I dusted off the chairs, brushed off some leaves (or so I thought) and hung up the lights.

But, dear reader, it should be noted that I took the photo on the left in complete darkness. I don’t even have a light for my back balcony! The Night Snapshot setting, which also works when capturing video, instantly brightened the image (see the photo on the right without this setting!), and it made me realize that I had really done a terrible job thinking I was getting rid of those leaves.

It’s the week of my birthday, and like a true Aries, I’ve started decorating my inner space so that I can celebrate my birthday for seven full days.

I added some balloons, hung silver stars, turned on my disco light, turned off all the lights, and took a few night shots to kick off the final year of my twenties.

The Galaxy S22 line really gave my otherwise boring weekend a boost. I was able to take pictures, share them with my friends on social media, and have fun checking things off my to-do list, all with my new favorite S Pen. Click here to discover the entire Galaxy S22 range.

The Galaxy S22 line also incorporates post-consumer recycled materials into its speaker module, as well as the internal parts of the power button and volume buttons. In addition to using recycled plastic found in the ocean, Samsung uses 100% recycled paper for the packaging of the Galaxy S22 series devices and includes a protective film made from recycled plastic.
