The Galaxy S22 series may've been eclipsed by the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 series, but the S22 is still a pretty powerful phone (as are most flagships that are just a generation or two behind). And it's also a lot cheaper -- if you can manage to find a deal. We're not seeing any direct discounts on the S22 right now, but there are a few trade-in and carrier deals you can take advantage of.

If you're coming in from the previous S21 generation, upgrading will score you a lot of cool features, most of which revolve around the camera. There's a larger pixel sensor, better nighttime photography, and an improved portrait mode, with auto-framing that can handle up to 10 people.

If you want the best Samsung phone in the series, the S22 Ultra is the gadget to go for. We were particularly happy to see the inclusion of the S Pen, which used to be on the now-canceled Galaxy Note. The S23 also has similar upgrades to the camera system, and a couple of special ones, such as raw photo tools and Super Clear Glass lenses for better videos at night, so it's a great phone to pick up if you love photography.

What colors does the Galaxy S22 come in?

Both the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are available in phantom black, phantom white, green and pink gold. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has a slightly different color lineup: phantom black, phantom white, green and burgundy.

How much does the Galaxy S22 cost?

The three models of the Galaxy S22 are available in various storage configurations, and with the release of the Galaxy S23, Samsung dropped the base price for the Galaxy S22 by $100. US pricing for each model now starts at:

  • Samsung Galaxy S22: $700 (originally $800)
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus: $1,000
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: $1,200

Both the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are available in 128GB and 256GB storage options with 8GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will also add in options for 512GB and 1TB with up to 12GB of RAM.

Best Galaxy S22 deals

Most carriers and retailers are offering some form of S22 deal right now, especially if you've got an older device you're looking to trade in. We've rounded up the best Galaxy S22 deals that you can shop and we will continue to update this page as new offers become available, so keep checking back if your carrier or preferred retailer is not listed below.

If you don't want the headache of navigating carriers, plans and installment payments, you'll want an unlocked phone you can purchase outright. Sadly, there aren't many great deals right now, with only the S22 Ultra 512GB model in burgundy going for $950, which is $250 off the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

Unfortunately, Verizon doesn't currently have any new S22 models in stock, but you can get certified pre-owned models with a new line. Both the S22 and the S22 Plus are available with trade-in for free with a new line.

Best Buy has no direct discounts on any of the S22 models, but the retailer does have its own trade-in program, which can save you up to $800 in exchange for your phone or device. You can also get some great deals as part of a carrier plan. On Verizon, for instance, you can save $700 on the Galaxy S22 Plus or $750 on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
