I am really annoyed with this issue on this stupid phone. Even bog standard  smart phone that are cheapest on the market have reliable GPS access and working google map, but this stupid phone from this great company doesnt. And they havent anything about it so far. At least have the decency to recall the product and refund the money so I can buy a phone that had these features from elsewhere which is pretty much any other phone on the market. And there is no charger sent with the phone, what is that about? How do you think that is going to work you bright sparks, which you clearly arent.

The usb cable transfer to PC does not work either. Overall everything that is taken for granted with smart phones in this day and age do not work on this phone, at least for a sizeable chunk of customers that have bought this brick from Samsung. While you are supposedly working on a solution, how about arranging for recall and refund?

You have made the right decision.  I bought it for the camera which I am happy with, but not having a working google map trumps every other selling points.

Google maps is a Google issue nothing to do with Samsung. I have Google maps on my S22ultra and I never have any problems with it.

Good for you, but i am one of the customers that had been sold the defective product. Also you should understand that for Google map navigation to work, the device needs to be able to process the gps signal, which this phone doesn't and that is causing untold problems to many s22 customers like me.

Is it a GPS problem or location access issue?

Have you given location access to Google maps?

There is a possibility you might have denied some permissions reqd for Google services to run.

If it is definitely a defective phone you should exchange it within your warranty period dependent on your country and where you bought it from.

My experience with my S22U has been great, had minor issue with expert raw, this was fixed

No GPS issues at all, Google maps works a charm
