Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra features Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, depending on the region. While both the variants have the same performance level on paper, this is not the case at all in reality as camera quality differences have been found in both models.
DxOMark tested the camera of both Snapdragon and Exynos variants and the test reveals that the devices do not capture the same picture quality even after having the same camera hardware. Also, it’s not always the same model that takes the lead, both have their own specialties.
According to the report, Snapdragon performs better in some instances of zoom cropping as the Exynos variant images have more noise and loss of detail. On the other hand, Snapdragon sharpens the image a lot, which leads to artifacts while Exynos’s images look more natural that way and moiré become less of a problem.
In this way, both the phones have their own specialty and it cannot be said which model is better. The test clears that the Snapdragon Galaxy S22 Ultra is slightly superior in capturing stills whereas, the Exynos Galaxy S22 Ultra is better at zoom and video recording.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra equips a 12MP Ultra-Wide Camera with PDAF, a 108 MP Wide Camera with laser autofocus, PDAF, and OIS, a 10MP Periscope Telephoto Camera with PDAF, OIS, and 10x optical zoom capabilities, a 10MP Telephoto Camera with OIS, PDAF, and 3x optical zoom
On the flip side, there’s a 40MP Front Camera that is capable to record 4K videos. While the phone already has such amazing camera capabilities that can beat Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, Samsung’s Expert RAW app expands these abilities to the pro-grade level.
Samsung Camcyclopedia launching soon for Galaxy Camera improvements
Samsung phones are well-known for their impressive Camera that take the consumers’ photography experiences to the next level. In addition to hardware specs, the Samsung Camera app is also famous as it packs a lot of image-capturing features and tools for Galaxy devices.
As the Galaxy Camera capabilities are nowadays increasing quite significantly, consumers are also exploring ways to share their concerns with the developers so the software department can fix the issues and problems of the One UI Camera functionality.
We saw numerous threads on Facebook groups, Reddit communities, and Twitter regarding Camera questions, suggestions, feedback and a lot of complaints by Samsung consumers. Well finally, Samsung has crafted a Camera-specific platform named Camcyclopedia for questions/answers, feedback, tips, and announcements.
A user, that had joined the Galaxy Camera Workshop (held last week in South Korea), revealed that Samsung said that it has created a Camera dedicated platform called Camcyclopedia which will be launched soon to provide support and fix issues for Galaxy users.
When is Samsung Camcyclopedia coming?
It’s not yet confirmed, but we can expect it in the coming days or weeks. However, it might not be a dedicated application, while the company may bring a new Camcyclopedia section in the Samsung Members app, which will be available through an app update.
Statement (by user)
“We are seeing a lot of opinions from many people, so if you let us know about camera-related feature suggestions or error colors through Samsung Members, it will be helpful for the staff to check and review.
In addition, it is said that CamCyclopedia will be launched with the purpose of Galaxy Camera Wikipedia so that many users can ask questions about the camera and understand the camera more easily.”
Not that all!
Aside from launching the Camcyclopedia, Samsung promised improvements to the stock camera app, features as well as camera quality through firmware updates. Moreover, the Expert RAW Camera app will also be enhanced as well as expanded to more Galaxy devices.
