Samsung introduced the Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones earlier this year. Alongside various impressive functionalities, the device was marked to have the best smartphone camera. Meanwhile, the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has effortlessly beaten the Galaxy S22 Ultra camera.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphone was announced at the Galaxy Unpacked event last week. You might not see many major upgrades in the design and specs but Samsung has greatly improved it as compared to its predecessor Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Recently, a Chinese tipster named Ice Universe, who has his hands on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 earlier than official sales, shared two pictures – one is captured with Galaxy S22 Ultra and another is clicked from Galaxy Z Fold 4 from the same angles.
These pictures clearly show that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphone camera has outperformed the Galaxy S22 Ultra camera. The two main aspects where the S22 Ultra has been defeated are color and high dynamic range (HDR).
As you can see, the picture captured by Galaxy S22 Ultra has some color faded around the sky and the tree, red marked in the photo. Whereas, the Fold 4’s click looks clear and sharpened. It seems like a big difference knowing that this is the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which has even beaten iPhone 13 in many aspects.
That’s not it. Previously and YouTuber tested the batteries of Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, and S22 Ultra. And surprisingly, the Galaxy S22 Ultra lost there too. This device only lasted 8 hours and 56 minutes and its temperature had risen to 50.4°C. Whereas, the two foldable survived around 9 hours and with less temperature.
It’s great to know that Samsung is working on foldable smartphone improvements but it is disappointed to see a high-range smartphone like the Galaxy S22 Ultra lose out.
