'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

While Samsung may have dropped the latest Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphones, the tech giant's non-folding line, the Samsung Galaxy S22, can still be picked up. Best of all, if you've been eyeing it but holding off because of the price, there's great news. You can get the S22 for only $598, saving you $200 on the 128GB model

The best part is you can simply add either phone to your cart on Amazon and then checkout. You don't have to trade in a device or add a new line through a carrier. No fuss, no muss. The deal also applies to the 256BB model, which is only $749 right now, too.

The deal features an unlocked smartphone and comes in four colors: green, pink gold, phantom black, and phantom white. Underneath the case you'll get a long-lasting 3,700mAh battery that uses 25W fast-charging so when your battery gets low you can get back to being on the go faster. 

You'll get a 50MP camera that also shoots imagery in stunning 8K video. In addition to these amazing specs, you'll get Auto Focus and Video Stabilization so you can create smooth content for all of your creative needs. It also comes with Nightography for shooting after the sun goes down and a 10MP front-facing camera for selfies.

The 6.1-inch screen can handle up to 120Hz refresh rates but it is adaptive to maximize not only your usage during the day, but also the battery life and the 8GB of RAM built into the phone.
