Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, The True Competition to Apple When It Comes to Updates?

As expected, Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy S22 line-up at their Samsung Unpacked event and they had one more surprise in store.

All eyes might have been on the Galaxy S22 Ultra but the announcement of five years of updates is the most significant Android feature capable of competing with Apple.

Samsung Galaxy S22 – 5 Years of Updates Total

Samsung will now offer four years of major Android Updates on the Galaxy S22 line-up and five years of security updates, an unparalleled level of support.

Not even Google can rival that – thanks to the company’s Tensor chip, Pixel 6 phones now offer three years of Android updates and five years of security updates. This is exactly the type of commitment needed to bring Android phones in line with Apple’s iPhones, whose long update schedule guarantees a longer lifespan and a better resale value.

Even better, more Samsung devices will get the same security update schedule – here’s the full list:

    Galaxy S Series: Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra as well as Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, S21 FE and upcoming S series devices

    Galaxy Z Series: Galaxy Z Fold3, Galaxy Z Flip3 and upcoming Z series devices

    Galaxy A Series: upcoming select A series devices

    Galaxy Tablets: Galaxy Tab S8, S8+, S8 Ultra and upcoming Tab S series devices

Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus Specs and Features

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage is $1,199.99, which is to be expected for a flagship, but the regular S22 and the S22 Plus offer plenty for their price tag – especially when considering the longevity of these devices.

The 6.1-inch S22 ($799.99) and 6.6-inch S22 Plus ($999.99) share almost the same specs if you look beyond the screen size and the battery (3,700 mAh vs 4,500 mAh).

They both have a up to 120Hz screen and a 1080×2340 px resolution and the camera setups are identical.

On the front a 10MP sensor handles the selfies and is capable of taking 4K video at 60 fps. On the back, there’s a triple sensor setup with 50MP (f/1.8) wide, 12MP (f/2.2) ultrawide, 10MP (f/2.4) telephoto lenses.

The same goes for the internals – 8 GB of RAM is paired with either 128 or 256 GB of storage.

 While the price is nothing to sneeze at (the S22 lineup starts at $800), offering five years of updates makes these phones the best Android deals in town.
