If you’re looking to upgrade your smartphone, you’re in luck. Both Best Buy and Amazon have discounted the entire Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup, with some models getting up to $200 knocked off their original price. This offer applies to all unlocked models of Samsung’s latest smartphone, regardless of the configuration. This either matches or beats the best prices we’ve seen for the S22 line, and we consider this an excellent deal on what we consider the default Android phones to buy. Read our reviews of the S22 and S22 Plus.
Kicking things off with the standard model of the S22, the 128GB model is currently available at Amazon and Best Buy for $699.99, as opposed to its usual retail price of $799.99. The base model of this 6.1-inch phone features a 1080 x 2340 display with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Equipped with an eight-core CPU, the S22 offers excellent performance despite its lackluster battery life. The S22 also features a 50MP wide-angle camera in addition to a 10MP front-facing lens.
Next up is the slightly larger S22 Plus, which, in its 128GB configuration, typically costs $999.99 but is down to $799.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. While the processor and cameras are unchanged, the Plus builds on the standard S22 with a larger, 6.6-inch 1080 x 2340 display and a larger battery. These are both welcome additions to an already excellent phone, even if the battery still had trouble making it through the day on a single charge.
Finally, the largest member of the S22 family, the 128GB S22 Ultra, is discounted to $999.99 from its usual price of $1,199.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. This beast of a phone sports a 6.8-inch 1440 x 3088 display, an even bigger battery, and a built-in stylus, in addition to a handful of other improvements. While the 128GB model features the same 8GB of RAM as the other models of the S22, the 256GB and 512GB versions are equipped with 12GB to help speed up performance. The Ultra also has a more robust camera array, with a 108MP wide-angle camera paired with a 40MP front-facing camera. Not one to break with tradition, however, the S22 Ultra shares the same battery woes as the two smaller models. Read our review.
