The S23 series is likely to be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1st, which means right now is actually a great time to find Samsung Galaxy S22 deals. This is mostly because demand is dropping slightly for the soon-to-be older phones, and retailers and wireless carriers alike are trying to free up stock to make room for the next big thing. 

Luckily, all three Android phones — the standard S22, the S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra — are still some of the best devices on the market, and that is likely to remain the cases even when the S23 lineup dominates the headlines. These phones boast gorgeous 120Hz AMOLED screens and ultra-efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets, plus you'll get loads of battery life and some of the best camera software around. Whether you're looking for a trade-in opportunity or a good old-fashioned discount, you'll find the best S22 deals on the web below. Didn't find what you were looking for today? Check back later: we update this list on a regular basis, and I totally anticipate further price drops in the weeks to come.

If you are in the market for a new phone and are willing to wait for the S23 series, it's worth noting that Samsung recently launched a reservation program (opens in new tab) that'll give you $50 off when you preorder an S23 device, and all you need to do is type in your name and email address — no payment required. The offer expires once Galaxy Unpacked kicks off on February 1st, so keep that in mind when you're making your decision.
