While the most powerful smartphones on the market are around €1,000, we find, among the basic models of the big brands, smartphones that are a little cheaper and just as efficient, but how do you choose between 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 don’t need the Ultra or Pro models, they certainly offer additional features but aren’t necessary for everyday smartphone use, plus these additions drive up prices drastically. Therefore, we will focus on two basic models and compare what smartphone users really care about, namely the quality of the camera, the battery and the overall performance of the smartphone.
who of theiPhone 14 either galaxy s22 will win the game? Let’s see this together.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22: design and build quality
The Samsung Galaxy S22 and the Apple iPhone 14 are magnificent devices. Both use aluminum frames, are IP68 rated against dust and water damage, and use glass on the front and back. In the case of Samsung, this rear glass is a Gorilla Glass Victus+. Apple used Ceramic Shield technology on the screen only, so the back glass is easier to scratch.
The iPhone 14 ditched the SIM card slot this year, where Samsung didn’t, keeping the feature in the Galaxy S22. On the connection and charging side, Apple has chosen to keep the Lightning port on the iPhone 14, so there is no compatibility with other Apple-branded chargers, where Samsung and its Galaxy S22 have chosen to follow the movement to user delight.
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 – Screen
Samsung offers a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen that runs at 120Hz with a resolution of 1080 x 2340. The screen features a maximum brightness of 1300 nits, HDR10+, and is covered by Gorilla Glass Victus+ technology. It also has an always-on display.
Apple, on the other hand, used a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED that runs at 60 Hz with a resolution of 1170 x 2532. This screen offers a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, HDR 10 and Ceramic Shield protection. Always-on display only comes with Pro models.
Smartphone power and performance
Samsung put the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor in the US version of the Galaxy S22. The iPhone 14 opted for last year’s A15 Bionic processor, also used in the iPhone 13. So there’s no technological leap for Apple. The A15 Bionic remains ultra-efficient despite everything. So much so that the 3,279 mAh battery in the iPhone 14 can last longer than the 3,700 mAh battery in the Galaxy S22. It’s also more powerful, according to benchmark-based tests.
RAM and storage options
Storage options on the Galaxy S22 include 128GB or 256GB, the iPhone 14 offers the same but also has a 512GB microSD card capacity option.
The Galaxy S22 has 8GB of RAM, which clearly needs the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. The iPhone 14 only has 6GB, but the A15 Bionic is more efficient and much less greedy.
The iPhone 14 has a new 12-megapixel main sensor with larger pixels for better low-light performance. It also has a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 12-megapixel front-facing sensor that now has autofocus. Video tops out at 4K at 60Hz, with typical iPhone quality.
The Galaxy S22 has three cameras on the rear, a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle, and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera. You can get 8K video at 24fps from the main camera, but who will shoot at that resolution? You also get optical zoom with the S22, but many prefer Apple’s faithful color reproduction. More megapixels don’t translate to better images either, as Samsung often over-processes its images.
Smartphone resale value
If you’re worried about saving money and want a smartphone that won’t lose too much value on resale, then you’ll need to turn to Apple. In fact, according to SellCell, which has done research on this topic, the iPhone and in particular the iPhone 1 “have lost “only” 16.4% of their value, while Samsung loses more than 50% of its value. Therefore, 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’ll buy the Samsung Galaxy S22. If you already have iOS, you will buy the iPhone 14.
Nothing we can say will convince you to switch to any of the smartphone operating systems. Although the iPhone 14 beats the Samsung S22 in most areas.
For 128 GB models, Apple offers its iPhone 14 from €930 when the Samsung Galaxy S22 starts around €630. A noticeable difference that could make a difference depending on your means.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22 – final verdict
If we base ourselves on the performance of the iPhone 14, we can already say that we would not choose it but its predecessor, the iPhone 13, however, due to a certain versatility and price, we opted for the Samsung Galaxy S22. Powerful, efficient, neat in terms of design, much cheaper than the Apple brand and equivalent in almost every way, there is almost no comparison. Our hearts go out to the Galaxy S22.
Now if you are an Apple aficionado then you prefer the iPhone 14 look at even theiPhone 13 which is still equivalent with just a few fewer features than its sibling.
