Samsung will be the first place to go to if you’re looking for discounts on the Samsung Galaxy S22.

This drops its price to just $175 if you get a full trade-in value, and that credit can also go toward the Samsung Galaxy S22+, which is regularly priced at $1,000.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 has since been overshadowed by its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S23, but it’s still a very capable smartphone with either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip or Samsung’s Exynos 2200 processor. It will breeze through everything that you throw at it, including multitasking between apps or playing demanding mobile games.

You’ll certainly love the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S22 — a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that’s bright and colorful. However, if you want it slightly bigger, you can go for the Samsung Galaxy S22+ and its 6.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display screen. Otherwise, the two models are similar, according to our Samsung Galaxy S22 versus Samsung Galaxy S22+ comparison, including their 8GB of RAM, IP68 resistance against water, and a triple-camera setup at the back with 50MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, and 10MP telephoto lenses.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 ships with Android 13 under Samsung’s OneUI 5, and with three more years of operating system updates, you can be sure that the smartphone will be getting access to new Android features in the future.
