Galaxy S22 series phones have a lot to say in terms of hardware (at least this is true for the Snapdragon model) and also need to improve the S22 main camera and Let us also mention S22 Plus. In addition, we should not miss the use of the Ultra model with the dedicated position of the S Pen.
But in the meantime, according to studies conducted by iFixit experts, these phones do not receive high marks in terms of repairability. Specifically, the repairability of the Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra has been thoroughly evaluated and they have finally received a score of 3 out of 10 for repairability.
