Common marketing tactic for a lot of companies.

 

To be honest 45w is not even impressive. BBK electronic devices and Xiaomi have been touting 65W(Xiaomi has a 120W charger)+ chargers for a very long time. Samsung's been really conservative with fast charging tech.

 

 

Wonder if its anything to do with the exploding sammies not long ago - lol too soon? jokes..

The Note 7 was because they didn't leave a big enough gap for the batteries to expand or heat up when charged or when used. They have since fixed that problem.

 

If they're still holding onto that and not getting over it then that's pretty bad.

Might be your first time ordering with samsung, as i said, every year it says "starts shipping xxx date", and if you have got your order in as part of the first batch, it arrives either on said date or a few days before.

 

i ordered mine the first day, and the date on the order is 24th. 

 

 

Interesting. On estore MyPage Track your order it still says "Processing"

 

What status is your order currently?

 

 

 

 

Processing for me as well,  it will change to preparing for dispatch by Wednesday most likely.

I first ordered an S22U at 0614hrs on Samsung web site, O/N NZ220210-[removed]


Then later I cancelled the order..... discount issue.


Then I placed a new order at 1841hrs,


A total of 23771 orders in about 12 hours... maybe not all S22U....


edit: my order is still processing.


 


[Mod edit (MF) removed order numbers.

Mine still says processing but I have a screenshot of their internal system that says otherwise and indicates they have cancelled it entirely. Not entirely sure I trust the online order tracker with the order statuses anymore.

A few people on avforums in the UK have received dispatch notices on Sunday so should be receiving theirs today, not that it helps us as they are getting the exynos varient.

What are you concerned about? That the S22 battery isn't going to last as long as your 3 year old S10e?

 

The S10E has a 3100mAh battery whereas the S22 has 3700mAh, not to mention the SoC inside the S22 will be more efficient as it is manufactured on 4nm process vs 7nm (Snapdragon 855) or 8nm (Exynos 9820).

 

Unless you are comparing the S22 battery life with a different phone?

 

My point is the S22 will last you throughout the day no problems.

I think soggychups' concerns regarding battery life are valid, early reports and tests seem to indicate that the S22 will not be a great battery life performer.

 

 

 

also 4nm SoC doesn't automatically mean it will be more efficient across the board in every scenario because there are situations where it won't be. According to Dave2D, under light use it is more efficient but under load it is less efficient. Granted most of us probably use our phones under light loads the majority of the time but not everyone so YMMV.

That's not reassuring information about the battery. I definitely fit under heavy load.  I have a note 20 that won't make it through the day without a charge now.

 

3 Hours less battery life would be terrible.

The early battery concerns have been cleared out already and recent battery tests shows base S22 very similar to iphone 13 Pro battery life under exact same usage. (Pro max obviously has longer life).

3 year old S10e will have around 25% less battery capacity(approximately). You can check the battery health via apps like Accubattery etc.

S22 is the only compact flagship around unfortunately otherwise iphone 13 Pro will be your next best bet.

Yes. On toms guide battery test S22 Ultra = 10 hours 18 mins, S21 Ultra = 11 Hours 25 mins

 

Few people commenting because the s pen charges inside the phone it draws a lot of battery
