Galaxy S22 Ultra Tips and Tricks You Should Know

As we use the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra more, we appreciate the handy tools it provides that make the user experience that much better. It’s like wishing every smartphone had these features! From using the S-Pen as a remote camera shutter button to editing RAW images in post-production.

 Below are Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra tips and tricks. Take a look!

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra -Using the S-Pen

Handwriting to Text

The S-Pen is the greatest addition to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra this year, as it should go without saying. The Galaxy S22 Ultra might have put an end to the Note (for now), but the fact that it’s been so cleanly integrated into the device gives even more reason to pull out your pen whenever you have the chance.

The S-Pen does not just provide obvious usage cases like signing digital documents, it can also convert handwriting to text. The S-Pen settings allow you to switch on ‘S-Pen-to-text’, which allows you to write straight into browsers like Chrome without writing anything out first. If the space in the search bar gets too crowded, the sidebar menu can be expanded to include a dedicated handwriting function.

If you can’t get the perfect shape with the S-Pen, you can hold down the pen once you’ve finished drawing and the phone will automatically draw the perfect shape. Writing with the S-Pen couldn’t be easier, but the features go well beyond handwriting and jotting down notes. And we haven’t even mentioned gesture controls!

Nightography Camera

Nightography is a new feature of the Samsung Galaxy S22 range that makes use of top-tier camera hardware. The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 108MP (1-inch) main sensor makes it possible to capture more light than most smartphones on the market. This results in exceptional low-light photography, and Samsung makes things easy for users by allowing them to access its ‘nightography’ feature from within its camera app.

Just snap away and let the large sensor and software take care of the rest. If you hold the phone still, the camera will display a countdown timer as it opens the shutter and lets light in before taking the picture. The results above demonstrate that the image is brighter, while remaining sharp with little haze. This is a handy feature that becomes even more useful when traveling through low-light conditions at night.

Gesture Control in Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

The S-Pen’s gesture controls are easily its best feature. As Samsung has integrated the pen into the device, it’s expanded its capabilities, encouraging users to use it every chance they get. What else can it do besides write? Here are some of the best S-Pen gestures.

  • Using the S-Pen, you can navigate through images in your gallery and change the music on Spotify.
  • Changing the volume is as easy as swiping up or down
  • The S-Pen can be used as a remote shutter by clicking and holding down the button.
  • When you wave the pen clockwise and anti-clockwise, the camera will zoom in and out
  • Double click the button to open the selfie camera.

There are so many ways to utilize the S-Pen when it comes to using the cameras – it’s not just for handwriting. In addition, there are plenty of tips and tricks built into the software, so let’s check them out.

Detail Enhancer Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

A photo mode icon can be found in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. You can tap that to enable a detail enhancer that sharpens the image while remaining subtle. When you put your hands on an object with a strong texture, such as a plant, a sculpture, or a painting, you’ll really notice the difference.

As soon as you’ve taken that detailed shot, you can take it to the next level by popping out the S-Pen and launching the Samsung Photo Editor. Here, you can add filters and adjust settings such as light balance, brightness, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, saturation, tint, and temperature. In addition, it’s easy to use because you shouldn’t have to be an expert photographer fluent in post-production to figure out what looks good. But if you are, Samsung also has an option for you.

Autoframing

When video conferencing with friends and colleagues, it’s nice to know the camera will frame video automatically. Additionally, it will facetrack individuals whenever they enter the frame, opening it up when it recognizes that more space is needed. This feature is smart enough to track up to ten people simultaneously. Last but not least, when you click on someone’s face, the focus and zoom in will be on them, perfect for presentations.

User Interface

We showed you all the features you didn’t know about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra’s Camera and S-Pen, but what about the User Interface? A number of small (yet useful) features create an ultra experience that goes above and beyond what you thought a smartphone was capable of doing. Let’s take a look.

Object Eraser

The Object Eraser is our most used software or post-production feature. Navigate to the object eraser by clicking the three dots in the bottom right-hand corner of any image in the camera gallery and then clicking the ‘edit’ button. To erase an object, simply draw around it with the S-Pen, e.g. a person, an animal, a traffic cone, a light pole, or any other object you want to remove. By selecting the appropriate button and highlighting with the S-Pen, this also works for shadows and reflections.

You can use it if you’re traveling and tourists keep photo bombing your picture, or maybe there’s just trash on the ground? Either way, you can use the erase tool to remove it cleanly.

Customization of Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of the most customizable smartphones on the market. Here you can adjust almost everything, from colour themes to personal contact videos (yes, videos), and even emojis. Check out these customisation tips.

  • With a pinch of a finger, you can change the home screen’s theme, including the colour scheme that matches your wallpaper.
  • Videos can be set as a call background, and even the audio can be used as a ringtone.
  • Yes, emojis can be merged together and animated as gifs.
  • In the display settings, you can turn on extra brightness to reach the 1750-nit maximum.

RAW Images

Using the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, you can capture pictures in RAW quality, allowing you to capture more detail and more dynamic range from the sensor. It results in more overhead for editing purposes, perfect for professionals and those who want to experiment with professional cameras and post-production.

For the Galaxy S22 Ultra to shoot in RAW, open the camera app, select pro mode, then open the settings and scroll down to picture format where you will find the RAW image settings. It will unlock maximum quality from the camera, allowing you to edit the photos in post-production in greater detail. In the image gallery, RAW images are marked with the ‘RAW’ indicator in the top right corner, so you know which ones are ready for transfer. We recommend Adobe Light room for this. It is a free app which can be downloaded from the Google Play store and offers the best photo editing available on mobile devices.
