Will a S22 be an improvement over my S20

Hi,
I have currently got an S20 & has been a wonderful phone over the last almost 2 years now. However, the other day it appeared with a green bar at the bottom, middle & top. Ever since then, it has been a bit faulty but still usable. However, the battery seems to have suffered from it. I have a feeling it may of gotten too hot as it was charging while this happened.
Last night, I left the S20 at around 70-80% with all apps closed & when I woke up, it was dead. Here are my current battery patterns on it.
The 14th was the day before the issue, the 15th was the day of the issue & 16th is today so far.

My plan was to hold out for the S23 due to the constant negative feedback about the S22 battery life. Do you think the S22 will perform much better in battery compared to what my S20 is like right now?
Also to add, with trade in & some other discounts the S22 would cost me £489 + live buds + tags.
Thanks all.

I'd stay away from the S22 and hold off for the S23. Choice is yours of course!

My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.

Current Devices:
  • Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

That is what my original plan was. But considering my phone now takes 2 charges a day, hot to touch and display is kinda faulty I'm not too sure if I'm able to wait that long 😂

Hi bud. I have upgraded to the s21 and it is not that awesome as I thought. I always stayed away from the new realeases untill people will review it properly and over time. I would suggest you to be patient, see how things goes.

Hi @Ctkgp 

 

I've used the Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256Gb Exynos SoC since Launch and haven't experienced any issues with mine although I do appreciate some have.

If you buy from Samsung UK then you have a 14 day cooling off period to try out the phone and if it isn't for you then you can send it back for a refund.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.

You can say that all the time stay away from s23 and wait for s24. Stay away from s24 and wait for s25. On and on it goes.

Why would anyone even go for a 128gb version? With no sd card minimum is 256gb now.

Even mobile networks give a 14day cooling off period

My opinion is based on community posts, YouTube videos etc...

The S22 series (and Z Flip 3) has way more negative experience related posts than positive ones and that's after a considerable amount of time on the market. The S23 hasn't been released, so it may be a good phone, it may be a bad phone. Time will tell! But, the fact that Samsung won't be shipping it with Exynos will probably be a good thing all round.
