If camera quality is a high priority, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has a more versatile setup with a significantly higher resolution main camera and a telephoto lens with 10x optical zoom, offering much better zoom capabilities. Conversely, the Motorola Edge+ (2022), while less expensive, has a simpler camera setup with a lower resolution main camera. For screen enthusiasts, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has a slightly larger and higher resolution display, which may also translate into a better viewing experience but can impact battery life more. The Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with an integrated stylus, a unique feature that adds functionality, especially for creative tasks or productivity. If budget is a main concern and you do not need the extra camera features, the integrated stylus, or the highest screen resolution, the Motorola Edge+ (2022) is a more cost-effective choice while still offering a high-quality display and a capable camera. Both phones have the same chipset, so performance should be comparable, and they run on Android, keeping the software experience somewhat similar. Give Feedback

PhoneArena

Iskren Gaidarov | November 2022
"Simply put, the Motorola Edge 30 Pro offers great battery life. When it comes to real-life charging, this phone is blazing fast. This phone is a beast of a performer, with a great display and battery life, and should not get overshadowed by more popular brands. [Note: The "Edge 30 Pro" and "Edge+ (2022) are the same phone but have different names in different markets.]"

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | February 2023
"The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a bit of a “greatest hits” compilation of Samsung’s best ideas from former devices. Moreover, it packs much of the same productivity-enabling software as previous Note devices coupled with the power of the S Pen while keeping the total package reasonable in terms of cost. The phone has more features, more cameras, and more software to put to use than many competing phones. It’s a hardcore device that nearly has it all."
