While the most powerful smartphones on the market cost around 1000 €, we found, among the basic models of major brands, smartphones are cheaper and equally efficient, however, how to choose between the two products? Here we offer you a comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the latest Apple smartphone, the iPhone 14.
In absolute terms, we do not need the Ultra or Pro models, they certainly offer additional features but are not necessary for the daily use of a smartphone, moreover, these additions increase the prices in a serious way. So we will focus on the two basic models, and compare what really interests smartphone users, which is the quality of the camera, the battery and the overall performance of the smartphone.
Who the iPhone 14 or the Samsung Galaxy S22 will win the game? Let’s see this.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22 – Design and build quality
The Samsung Galaxy S22 and Apple’s iPhone 14 are great devices. Both use aluminum frames, have an IP68 rating against dust and water damage, and use glass front and back. In the case of Samsung, this back glass is Gorilla Glass Victus +. Apple only uses Ceramic Shield technology on the display, so the glass back is easier to scratch.
The iPhone 14 removed the SIM card slot this year, where Samsung did not, the Galaxy S22 retained. In terms of connection and charging, Apple has chosen to keep the Lightning port of the iPhone 14, there is no compatibility with other chargers for the Apple brand therefore, where Samsung and its Galaxy S22 have chosen to follow the movement of users’ happiness.
Color options for the S22 include black, white, rose gold, green, and purple. iPhone 14 is available in purple, blue, midnight, starlight, and Project (RED).
iPhone 14 vs. Galaxy S22 – Display
Samsung offers a 6.1-inch AMOLED display running at 120Hz with a resolution of 1080 x 2340. The display has a peak brightness of 1300 nits, HDR10 +, and is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus + technology. It also has regular displays.
Apple, on the other hand, used a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED running at 60Hz with a resolution of 1170 x 2532. This display offers a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, HDR 10 and Ceramic Shield protection . Always featured with Pro models.
Smartphone power and performance
Samsung has put the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor in the US version of the Galaxy S22. The iPhone 14 made the choice of the A15 Bionic processor from last year, also used in the iPhone 13. So there is no technological leap for the apple. The A15 Bionic remains ultra-efficient despite everything. So the 3,279 mAh battery of the iPhone 14 can exceed the 3,700 mAh battery of the Galaxy S22. It is also more powerful, according to benchmark-based tests.
RAM and storage options
Galaxy S22 storage options include 128GB or 256GB. The iPhone 14 offers the same but also has a 512GB capacity option. microSD card.
The Galaxy S22 has 8GB of RAM, which is obviously required by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. The iPhone 14 only has 6 GB, but the A15 Bionic is more efficient and less greedy.
The iPhone 14 has a new 12-megapixel main sensor with larger pixels for better low-light performance. It also has an ultra-wide 12-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel front sensor that now has autofocus. Video goes up to 4K at 60Hz, with typical iPhone quality.
The Galaxy S22 has three cameras on the back, a 50-megapixel main, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and a 10-megapixel telephoto. You can get 8K video at 24 fps from the main camera, but who shoots at that resolution? You also get optical zoom with the S22, but there’s much to be desired in Apple’s faithful color reproduction. More megapixels doesn’t translate to better images either, with Samsung constantly over-processing its images.
The amount of smartphone sales
If you are worried about saving money and want to have a smartphone that does not lose too much value in the sale, then you should turn to Apple. In fact, according to SellCell, which does research on this topic, the iPhone and especially the iPhone 1 “lost” only 16.4% of its value, where Samsung lost more than 50% of its value. So we can expect the same results with the iPhone 14 and the Galaxy S22.
Android or iOS: the choice is yours
If you want the Android experience, you buy the Samsung Galaxy S22. If you’re on iOS, you buy the iPhone 14.
Nothing we can say will persuade you to switch to any other smartphone operating system. Although the iPhone 14 beats the Samsung S22 in most areas.
For 128GB models, Apple offers its iPhone 14 from €930 when the Samsung Galaxy S22 starts at around €630. A notable difference that can make a difference depending on your income.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22 – final verdict
If we base ourselves on the performance of the iPhone 14, then, we can say that we do not choose it but its predecessor, the iPhone 13, now, for a versatility and for the price, we choose the Samsung Galaxy S22. Powerful, efficient, neat in terms of design, cheaper than the Apple brand and equivalent in almost every way, almost without comparison. Our hearts are changing for the Galaxy S22.
Now, if you are an Apple aficionado, then prefer the iPhone 14, or even the iPhone 13 which remains equivalent with some features less than its brother.
