It goes without saying, but the S-Pen is the best gadget added to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra this year.

In the S Pen settings, you can switch to “S Pen to Text”, which allows you to type directly into browsers like Chrome without having to type anything. On top of that, if you’re short on space in the search bar, the sidebar menu can be expanded to include a dedicated handwriting feature for taking notes on the go.

If you’re drawing shapes with the S Pen but can’t achieve the perfect shape, hold down the pen when you’re done and the phone will automatically draw the perfect shape. Handwriting with the S Pen couldn’t be easier, but its capabilities go way beyond handwriting and note-taking. We haven’t even talked about gesture control!

Night photography is a new feature of the Samsung Galaxy S22 line that takes advantage of the top-notch camera hardware. If you want the best images from your smartphone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra (1″) features a 108MP (1″) main sensor that allows the phone to absorb more light than most smartphones on the market. This provides exceptional low-light photography, and Samsung makes the user experience easier with Night Shots, which can be accessed through the camera app.

Here you can take photos and the big sensor and software will do the rest. Raise your phone and the camera will display a countdown timer as it opens the shutter and lets in light before taking a photo. As you can see from the results above, the image is much brighter but remains sharp with very little noise. This is a very useful feature that comes by itself when driving at night in low light conditions.

Auto crop

With so many video conferences, it’s good to know that your camera automatically crops your video when you’re in conference with friends and colleagues. In addition, he will meet people when someone enters the frame and open it when he sees the need for more space. This feature is smart enough to track up to 10 people at once. Finally, when you click on a person’s face, it gets focused and enlarged, which is perfect for rendering.

detail improvement

In photo mode, you will see an icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Clicking it activates the Detail Enhancer, which sharpens the image while maintaining resolution. You will really notice the difference on things with strong textures like plants, small sculptures and paintings.

Once you’ve got that detailed shot, you can take it one step further by highlighting the S Pen and going to Samsung’s photo editor, where you can apply filters to photos and adjust settings including light balance, brightness, exposure, contrast. , Highlights, Shadows, Saturation, Paint, Temperature. Most importantly, it’s still easy to use as you don’t need to be an experienced post-production photographer to figure out what looks good! But if you… Samsung has that too.
