We're just weeks away from Samsung unveiling the new Galaxy S23 Series, but the Galaxy S22 Ultra is still one of the best overall smartphones today -- and the best that Samsung has to offer for camera performance. With the S Pen now being incorporated into the phone, the Note lives on in the S22 Ultra, turning the Ultra into the ultimate stylus-enabled smartphone.
If your job requires you to zoom into subjects from far away, or you're just not the best at scrambling through crowds to capture things in the frame, no other phone beats the S22 Ultra in terms of telephoto capability and, more importantly, quality. Zooming up to 30x provides high-quality images, but even beyond this zoom level, there are practical reasons to see the details of the subjects you are shooting.
