Best Samsung Galaxy S22 deals

First things first, let's look at deals for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. Including the S22, the S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra, this flagship device lineup launched earlier this year and is expected to take center stage with a ton of great offers come Prime Day. 

By definition, flagship phones stand out as the best you can get, offering the highest-end specs, features, and designs. They're also the phones that cost the most, so when they aren't on sale, they can be difficult for many people to afford. Thanks to Prime Day, however, buying some of these flagships is considerably easier.

The S22 may not be as powerful as its Ultra big brother, but it's nevertheless an excellent option if you're looking for something compact and fast, with features like a 50MP camera and vibrant AMOLED display. Prime Day is currently seeing the S22 drop to just $599.99, far and away the cheapest it's ever been.

The Ultra is breaking Prime Day records of its own, dropping to a mere $909.99 for the next two days.
