Despite being a few years old, the Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup of smartphones continues to be a solid option for many people, especially if you can pair the purchase with a great deal. 

All three phones — the base Galaxy S22, the S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra — are still powerful devices that deliver some of the best user experiences on the market. And now that they're thought to be a bit outdated, you can save some serious cash on these phones. These offers are particularly noteworthy when you consider that the S23 lineup isn't that different from its predecessor. With the Samsung Galaxy S22, for instance, you still get excellent performance thanks to a Snapdragon chipset, years of software support, and camera software that can hang with the best of them. The same goes for the entire S22 series, so why spend more when you can get a great user experience for less? 

It's worth mentioning that the new Galaxy S24 series is likely to be revealed during Samsung Unpacked on January 17th. If you're interested in the latest flagship phones, check out the early S24 deal that could get you a $50 credit and up to $970 of trade-in credit before the phones are out. No payment required.
