Active smartphones in the world were more than 3 billion as of 2020. A majority of those are made by Samsung.
Now, Samsung is one of the dominating forces in the smartphone arena. Their latest devices are built with a cool new processor, the Qualcomm.
So you know your brand new Samsung S22 was built with top quality in mind. But you still need to do your part to make sure drops and accidents don’t break it, right?
Delve into what makes the S22 a superior phone and why you need a durable case to keep yours safe.
Samsung Galaxy S22
This stylish device is more ergonomic than its predecessors. Even in the smallest hands, the S22 feels friendlier.
There are three models of the Galaxy S22. The first is the standard Galaxy S22. The screen on the S22 is roughly 6.1 inches and comes with either 128GB or 256GB of storage.
The S22+ is a little larger at 6.6inches. The battery on the S22+ also has a little more juice than the regular S22.
Finally, there is the S22 Ultra. At 6.8 inches and with an in-built stylus, this is the Samsung aficionado's smartphone. The S22 Ultra comes in four storage sizes, the largest being 1TB.
Elite Performance Within Your Reach
Though the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is arguably the most expensive smartphone in the new lineup, you're investing in real value. The Ultra offers more functionality than the Galaxy Note20.
Experts have already argued that the S22 Ultra is a viable replacement for the Note20. The crisp edges make this phone so much more than just your everyday smartphone.
You can take the S22 anywhere and remain fully connected. No more traveling with a phone, tablet, multiple chargers, and more. With the S22 Ultra, you have everything you need in one.
Of course, the S22 and S22+ are just as nifty. Let's dig into some of the best features of the latest model.
Nightography and 8K Video Recording
Thanks to smartphones, everyone can now be a mobile phone photographer. The S22's latest innovation is the Nightography feature. Sensors within the S22 pull in more light while the Super Clear Glass brings down any potential lens flare. Coupled with fast-acting AI, your night photography will process almost instantly.
8K video records at roughly 30 frames per second. This is about 30% faster than previous graphics rendering in older models. Previous models in the S20 line used 8K, but not with the Qualcomm upgrades available.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Chipset
All the new processing power in the S22 collection comes from the new chip. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset offers 30% more power efficiency as well as 20% greater performance.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 makes your phone work faster and have longer battery life giving you both speed and longevity.
The camera data on the Qualcomm includes an 18-bit system. According to reviewers, this means 4,096 times more camera data.
Whether you're in the darkness or brightest of light, you'll get a great shot on the S22. The Snapdragon aspect of the Qualcomm includes higher security. You can literally use your phone as a digital car key, along with the standard e-wallet, IDs, and driver’s licenses.
Smoothest and Fastest Samsung Yet
Thanks to increased power through the new chip, the S22 is the smoothest phone in generations of Samsung smartphones. The ergonomic design is smooth stylistically and practically. It's a minimalist's dream.
The usability of the phone processor is smooth, too. Photographs on the S22 are so sharp that they auto-tune pet hair out of the background.
All apps on the S22 are easier to use thanks to the streamlining process. Navigating from streaming to gaming to browsing has never been smoother.
While the S20 used the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, the 8 Gen 1 is just something else entirely. It's no wonder Samsung continues to be the world's #1phone.
The incredible speed of the processor applies to the battery, too. The battery life is typically more than a day from a single charge. When you do have to refuel, the 45W super-fast charging port means you won’t be waiting very long.
The S22 range might be some of the only phones on the market to support the latest developments in 5G. According to Qualcomm, 5G is only possible because of their breakthroughs in technology.
5G will be faster, more reliable, and will revolutionize connections with each other. While experts say it might take until 2027 for everything to be running on 5G, you can be more than ahead of the game with your S22.
How to Protect Your Samsung S22
In this day and age, is there really a need to debate whether or not you need a phone case? You do. There is no better way to protect your investment than to use a phone case.
Even if you don't like the aesthetics, a phone case increases the resale value of your phone. While the S22 is the best on the market today, in years to come, you'll want to trade it in for whatever amazingness Samsung develops next.
Most people don't realize that their phones aren't covered by their insurance. So, when you invariably drop or break your S22, it's up to you to cover the repair.
When you break a phone, you're not just paying through the nose to get it fixed. You'll also have to wait weeks, maybe even months, for it to come back to you. You can avoid all of these stressors with a nominal investment in a top-tier phone case.
Phone Cases: A Short History
The first-ever mobile phone was created in 1973 by the Motorola company. For the first thirty or so years of mobile phones, cases were redundant.
Each device was so bulky that you were more likely to break whatever you were dropping it on than break the phone. If you're a millennial, you probably remember the early Nokia phones which were so durable no matter how many times you dropped them.
Now, cases for our Apple and Android phones are essential since our phones are almost exclusively made of glass and lightweight materials. These are prone to shattering and cracking.
You need a phone case, but your choice should vary depending on your lifestyle. Let's discuss this next.
What's Your Lifestyle?
There are 6 elements to consider when picking the best Samsung S22 case. These include:
- •Screen protection
Durability is a two-factor consideration which includes the case's physical strength and how well it protects your phone. If you're not sure how durable you need your case to be, ask yourself: how rough are you with your phone?
Do you throw it on the couch or bed? Does it often fall out of your hands or pockets? Where do you use your phone the most?
If you work in construction, are an avid hiker, or are always on the go, then durability is a key factor in picking your phone case. The last thing you want is for your shiny new Galaxy S22 to shatter before you've really had a chance to enjoy its incredible new capabilities.
Bulkier cases typically offer greater protection. Some people might not find them aesthetically pleasing. But, of course, your style preference is your decision.
One major consideration for the S22 is whether or not to get a waterproof case. If you spend a lot of time around the pool, lakes, or the ocean, then waterproof phone cases are essential.
A kickstand for the Galaxy S22 is also a good choice. With the higher processing power, you'll probably use this phone for a lot of casual viewing.
Overall, durability is the key factor for your S22. Let's explore more about how and why durability is so essential.
Phone Cases for Athletes
The durability of phone cases for the Galaxy S22 is exceedingly important for athletes. A durable case means accidentally dropping your phone while working out is no longer a worry.
The best materials for drop protection are hard plastics, silicone, rubber, thermoplastic, and leather. All add a degree of shock absorbance.
However, reducing the number of potential drops is also part of a phone case's durability. A durable case should have textured edges so they're easier to grip.
Scratches on Samsung

High-quality materials keep your phone and camera lenses safe. You can limit the chance of scratches with some lifestyle changes. For example, don't drive with your phone on your lap.
When you put your phone down, put it facedown. Don't keep your phone in the same pocket as your keys or other sharp objects.
A reliable case is the best way to ensure your Samsung Galaxy S22 stays in great condition for as long as possible. Even the smallest scratch can decrease your resale value. A poorly placed scratch could render your phone in need of a big repair.
Materials Used for Durable Phone Cases
Here are the differences between the best Samsung Galaxy S22 durable phone cases available today.
Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)
TPU stands for thermoplastic polyurethane. TPU has been around since 1959 and has been used in countless different applications.
TPU is a go-to material for running shoes, water rafts, medical devices, and other sporting goods. The reason TPU is so popular is because of its strength. It's even used in power tools and vehicles.
You've almost certainly bought items made from TPU. They might even be in your home right now.
TPU is a popular material for phone cases because it can withstand a lot. The elasticity of TPU means it absorbs shocks naturally.
As a liquid-resistant material, a phone case made of TPU will keep your phone safe. It also means it's easy to clean if you do get oil, grease, or other stains on the case.
The heat and abrasion resistance of TPU not only keeps your case clean and classy but protects your phone like no other material. The high-strength composition of TPU means your phone will be protected from even the most extreme situations.
