The Samsung Galaxy S22+ (Exynos) is the middle model in the Korean company’s 2022 top-end S-series, and it uses the same Exynos 2200 chipset as the flagship S22 Ultra. Like the S22, the S22+ uses a smaller and lower-resolution display than the S22 Ultra, and it doesn’t offer the larger device’s S-Pen stylus.

With a DXOMARK Camera score of 126 the Samsung Galaxy S22+ (Exynos) camera does an excellent job, but it lands in the middle of the Ultra-Premium segment that it is in. Compared to last year’s S21+, the new device offers significant improvements in most areas.

The results of the S22+ (Exynos) were identical to those of the S22 (Exynos), and we direct you to the Galaxy S22 (Exynos) Camera test for a more in-depth look into the device’s camera performance.
