We’ve been keeping an eye on Samsung to see when their Black Friday deals would hit, and it looks like today is the day. As of now, all of the latest Galaxy phones are on sale, with the biggest discount going to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. With $300 off the list price, Samsung’s most premium (non-foldable) Galaxy phone is down to $900. We saw the S22 Ultra drop to this price for a few days earlier this month as a sort of Black Friday preview, but then he jumped back to his usual price. For anyone who missed that window, you can once again grab our current favorite Android phone while it’s this low.

We gave the S22 Ultra an 89 in our review, calling it “the best premium Android flagship money can buy”. It shares a lot in common with Samsung’s for now discontinued Note series, especially with the addition of the built-in S Pen and the return to a more rectangular shape, but the S22 Ultra isn’t just a Galaxy Note rehash. It has a “lush” screen that keeps everything looking smooth with a 120Hz refresh rate and a bright 6.8-inch Super AMOLED panel. The cameras have also been updated, with a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a pair of 10MP telephoto lenses on the back. There’s a 40MP camera on the front, along with new custom video calling software for using Google’s Duo (now called Google Meet).

The S22 Ultra uses Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processors, which in our tests handled fairly intensive multitasking without bogging down or even heating up significantly. While the battery didn’t last as long as we’d hoped, it gave 17 hours and 16 minutes in our video rundown test.

If you don’t need the S Pen or so many cameras, you can try the Galaxy S22+. It’s also on sale for Black Friday, with $250 off the MSRP, bringing it down to $800. We gave it an 87 in our review, particularly impressed by the extra-bright display and ability to capture rich photos in low light. to make light.

The base model Galaxy S22 also earned an 87 from us. Even at the $800 list price, we said the S22 gives you more “phone for the money” than anything you can buy from Apple or Google. Now that it’s down to $700, that statement is more true than ever.
