While the most powerful smartphones on the market cost about 1000 euros, among the basic models of the major brands we find smartphones a little cheaper and equally effective, however, how do you choose between two products? Here we give you a comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 14.
In absolute terms, we do not need Ultra or Pro models, they certainly offer additional features but are not necessary for the daily use of the smartphone, moreover, these additions increase the prices in a drastic way. So we will focus on 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 will win the game among iPhone 14 or Samsung Galaxy S22? Let’s see this together.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22 – Design and Build Quality
The Samsung Galaxy S22 and iPhone 14 are great devices. Both use aluminum frames, carry an IP68 rating against dust and water damage, and use front and rear glass. In the case of Samsung, that back glass is Gorilla Glass Victus +. Apple only used Ceramic Shield technology on the screen, so the back glass is easy to scratch.
The iPhone 14 ditched the SIM card slot this year, as Samsung didn’t, keeping the feature on the Galaxy S22. In terms of connectivity and charging, Apple chose to keep the Lightning port on the iPhone 14, and incompatibility with other chargers of the Apple brand, Samsung and Galaxy S22 chose to follow the movement to the delight of users.
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 works at a frequency of 120 Hz with a resolution of 1080 x 2340. The screen has a brightness of 1300 nits, HDR10 +, and it is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus + technology. It also has an always-on display.
On the other hand, Apple has used a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display that works at 60Hz with a resolution of 1170 x 2532. This screen offers a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, HDR 10, and Ceramic Shield protection. The always-on display only comes with Pro models.
Smartphone power and performance
Samsung has put its flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor in the US version of the Galaxy S22. The iPhone 14 chose the A15 Bionic processor from last year, which was also used in the iPhone 13. So there is no technological leap for Apple. The A15 Bionic chip remains super efficient after all. So much so that the 3,279mAh battery in the iPhone 14 can last longer than the 3,700mAh battery in the Galaxy S22. It’s also more powerful, according to standards-based tests.
RAM and Storage Options
Storage options on the Galaxy S22 include 128GB or 256GB, and the iPhone 14 offers the same but also has a 512GB microSD card option.
The Galaxy S22 has 8GB of RAM, which the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor clearly needs. The iPhone 14 has only 6 GB, but the A15 Bionic is more efficient and less greedy.
iPhone 14 has a new 12MP main sensor with larger pixels for better low-light performance. It also has a 12MP wide sensor and a 12MP front sensor that now has autofocus. Video peaks at 4K at 60Hz, at typical iPhone quality.
The Galaxy S22 has three cameras on the back, a 50MP main camera, a 12MP wide camera, and a 10MP telephoto camera. You can get 8K video at 24fps from the main camera, but who is going to shoot at that resolution? You can also get optical zoom with the S22, but many prefer Apple’s faithful color reproduction. More megapixels don’t translate into better photos either, Samsung often over-processes their photos.
Smartphone resale value
If you are interested in saving money and want to own a smartphone that does not lose much value on resale, you will have to turn to Apple. En effet, d’après SellCell, qui a fait des recherches à ce sujet, les iPhone et notamment l’iPhone 1″ n’aurait perdu « que » 16.4% de sa valeur, là où Samsung perd plus de 50% de its value. So we can expect the same results with the iPhone 14 and Galaxy S22.
Android or iOS: the choice is yours
If you want to try Android, you’ll buy the Samsung Galaxy S22. If you’re already on iOS, you’ll buy an iPhone 14.
Nothing we can say will convince you to switch to a smartphone operating system. Although the iPhone 14 outperforms the Samsung S22 in most areas.
For 128 GB models, Apple offers iPhone 14 from 930 euros when the Samsung Galaxy S22 starts around 630 euros. A notorious team can make a difference depending on your capabilities.
iPhone 14 vs Galaxy S22 – Final Verdict
If we rely on the performance of the iPhone 14 already, then we can say that we will choose only its predecessor, the iPhone 13, now, for a certain variety and price, we choose the Samsung Galaxy S22. Powerful, efficient, elegant in design and much cheaper than the Apple brand and its equivalent in almost every respect, there is almost no comparison. Our heart is pounding with the Galaxy S22.
Now, if you are an Apple fan, then you would prefer the iPhone 14, or even the iPhone 13 which remains the equivalent with only a few features less than its sibling.
