Galaxy S22 Software Reviews

If you own a Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, or Galaxy S22 Ultra, or if you’re thinking about buying one, keep an eye on feedback from other users.

There are several places to find feedback about the Galaxy S22 series’ performance. We recommend taking a look at XDA-Developers, the Galaxy S22 Reddit, and the Android Reddit.

If you live in the United States you’ll also want to keep your eyes on the official AT&TVerizon, and T-Mobile forums if you’re on one of those networks.

We also recommend poking around on social media sites like Twitter and YouTube for feedback about the Galaxy S22 series’ current performance.

We’ll also provide you with the latest information about Android updates for the Galaxy S22 so keep an eye out for new information.

Prepare for Android Software Updates

Samsung and its partners will fix a lot of problems, but Android software updates often bring problems of their own.

When you use your Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, or Galaxy S22 Ultra there’s a chance you’re prompted to download a new version of Android. New updates can cause problems so you’ll want to prepare your device for the move to a new firmware.

There’s no way to predict exactly how new software will impact your phone’s performance. Some of you will see a performance boost, others will run into issues. This is precisely why you should spend some time prepping your phone for the move.

Here’s what we recommend doing before installing new software on your Galaxy S22, Galaxy 22+, or Galaxy S22 Ultra:

  • Backup your data.
  • Get familiar with the latest Android firmware’s changes.
  • Have your login information handy.
  • Dig into feedback about performance.
  • Cleanup your phone’s storage.
  • Find fixes for potential problems.
  • Check in with IT.
  • Check app reviews and install updates.

Follow these steps and you should be able to avoid major issues with the latest software.

How to Fix Galaxy S22 Problems

If you run into an issue, take a look at our list of fixes for common Galaxy problems. We’ve also released a guide that could help you fix battery life issues.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for in our guides, you should check out the XDA’s Galaxy S22 forums, your carrier support forum (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon), and the Galaxy S22 Reddit for potential fixes.

What’s Next

Samsung will continue to push monthly security patches to the Galaxy S22 series and, again, these updates often include bug fixes for lingering issues.

Software support for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra will last for years. Samsung currently provides five years of support to flagship devices.

If your carrier has a similar schedule available, you might want to bookmark it and keep an eye out for details regarding incoming software updates for your Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, or Galaxy S22 Ultra model.

5 Reasons to Wait for the iPhone 15 & 6 Reasons Not To

Wait for Design Changes

Wait for Design Changes

Last year, Apple introduced a brand new pill-shaped notch the company calls Dynamic Island. Unfortunately, this change is only available on the company's high-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. That will likely change this year.

Analyst Ross Young believes Apple could bring Dynamic Island to the lower-end iPhone 15 models. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman does as well.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iPhone 15's proximity sensor will be integrated into Dynamic Island. The proximity sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro models is under the display outside of Dynamic Island. This could lead to Face ID improvements.

This might give some of you considering Apple's iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus a reason to hold out and wait for the new models.

On the flip side, Young doesn't think the standard iPhone 15 models will get 120Hz/LTPO like the iPhone 15 Pro models. This haas been backed up by another source who says the iPhone 15/iPhone 15 Plus won't get ProMotion and Always-On display capabilities. 

We've heard the the iPhone 15 Max's design will be made out of titanium as opposed to stainless steel.

Leaker ShrimpApplePro claims early information suggests Apple is indeed working on a titanium design. The leaker says the design may also incorporate curved rear edges and a glass back.

In a newer tweet, the leaker says the iPhone 15 Pro models will "have thinner bezels" with curved edges. The display is reportedly still flat, however.

ShrimpApplePro says additional sources now agree with the information and that the bezels on the iPhone 15 Pro models will indeed be thinner.

In a tweet, well-known leaker Ice Universe says the iPhone 15 Pro Max will break the record for thinnest bezels on a smartphone. The record is currently held by the Xiaomi 13.

Front glass panels for the iPhone 15 series have apparently leaked and they depict thinner bezels on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Analyst Jeff Pu from Haitong International Securities also believes the company is working to deliver a new titanium design. So does Gurman.

We've seen an iPhone 15 Pro dummy unit leak on the Chinese version of TikTok and it gives us a glimpse at what the device might look like. CAD images of the iPhone 15 Pro from 9to5Mac also show us what the final product could look like. 

We've also heard the iPhone 15 Pro might have a multi-use action button instead of a mute button. This button would probably work like it does on the Apple Watch Ultra in that it will allow users to map it to different functions.

You can see it in AppleInsider's video above.

    I have 2 S22 phones that need to be rebooted several times a day to be able to use them. Constantly not getting message phone calls and never know if it is working or not. Same issue on sending text or making calls. Phone worked fine for one month and once the first update was pushed, broke both of them. Can’t return them cause past 30 day limit so stuck with 2 paperweights. Tried everything under the sun too. Must have factor reset them both 5 times. Still flaky and going on 8 months with no end in sight. Going full apple when up for new phone. Samsung you lost several customers forever. They don’t seem to care, neither does the carriers, attitude is it’s you problem…
