The Galaxy S22 series flagship phones are among the most reliable devices you can get in 2022. Unfortunately, this contrasts with Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones. However, while both Samsung and Google have a lot of value to offer, neither company has been able to make a “flawless” phone, which isn’t entirely surprising – The perfect phone does not exist…Anyway, if you want to ask, I will tell you that perhaps the biggest problem with the Galaxy S22 series, or at least the most obvious one compared to the Galaxy S21, is that Samsung flagships tend to overexpose some photos taken at high altitude. Contrast scenarios. On the other hand, Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones have been annoyed with a whole host of software and hardware issues that need to be addressed, well whether or not it’s due to stress from the launch of the new iPhone 14 series, both Samsung and Google is finally tackling the biggest issues with its current flagship phones that have been out for a long time now.
Of course, the timing may be a coincidence, but it’s still a great occasion to talk about Android’s efforts towards improving and competing with the new iPhones. Although the main criticism I will face here is How long It took Samsung and Google to address these rather obvious flaws!
lets take alook…
Ultra lag is better than no: Arriving in time for iPhone 14 launch, Android 13 fixes most Pixel 6 bugs that have been annoying users for 11 months
Too late …
Let’s start with Google because the story with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro is fairly straightforward – I mean at least as far as what was wrong with phones…
As someone who uses a file Pixel 6 Pro on Android 13 for two weeks now, so I’m so, and I mean very I’m happy to report that the Pixel 6 Pro is an overall stable phone and more responsive than it was at launch!
- The Pixel 6 Pro’s auto-brightness feature may not be class-leading, but it’s more stable than before
- The fingerprint reader (by far the most annoying issue with the Pixel 6) is now more reliable, and it doesn’t look as slow as it once was – thanks mostly to the revised animations
- My Pixel 6 Pro isn’t randomly freezing now (although this wasn’t happening often anyway)
- Tool transition animations are now more consistent and streamlined, helping the Pixel 6 feel more fluid (it doesn’t refresh randomly anymore)
- Image capture and processing is now more consistent, even slightly faster than it was at launch (it used to be a total mess – it could crash, slow down the phone, etc.)
- Scrolling through apps like Twitter and Instagram on the Pixel 6 Pro is now as smooth as it’s always been assumed, rather than jittery at times
Anyway, the reason I say the Pixel 6 Pro with the advent of Android 13 is relatively short-lived is because I’m no longer using the Pixel 6 Pro as my main phone. This is because about 2-3 months ago I had to switch to a more reliable use iPhone 13 mini, which I loved (mostly thanks to the reliability and size).
we will, trulyThe reason for the switch was the fact that Google was very slow to address the now seemingly fixed software issues that I had to contend with for nearly 10 months on my Pixel 6 Pro, which is why Google doesn’t get many points in my book for fixing bugs Which was never supposed to exist, or that the company should have addressed at least half a year ago. However, it’s nice to be able to say that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are now reliable phones!
Better late than never?!
Samsung’s One UI 5 beta fixes two biggest Galaxy S22 issues just in time for Apple’s iPhone 14 launch, but it’s too late for Galaxy users

Fortunately for Galaxy fans, Samsung’s ending issues have been milder, but certainly not the ones to ignore. It’s just that Google set the error bar too high (or low?).
Anyway, the two main issues with the Galaxy S22 series phones are slow animations and inconsistent camera performance when it comes to HDR. According to tech enthusiasts and leakers Ice worldwhich is running the latest beta version of One UI 5.3, has animations on it The Galaxy S22 Ultra is now smoother than ever, which is good news. It also indicates that the Galaxy is still not on par with the iPhone when it comes to fluidity.
But the other most important fix is the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra camera. Once it arrives on your devices via OTA update, One UI 5 will basically help bring the HDR algorithm for improved photos to the new. Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 goes to the more traditional Samsung flagships!
For those who aren’t in the know, yet, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 take noticeably better photos than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is of course great news for Fold and Flip users, but disappointing for those who’ve bought a Galaxy back. S22 Ultra camera-focused in February …

In fact, it is very difficult to answer the question “Which Samsung company has the best camera?” Immediately. But that’s the challenge Samsung is creating for itself by launching several flagship phones in the same year, and canceling the Galaxy Note.
Galaxy S22, Pixel 6, iPhone 14 errors: Samsung and Google need to follow Apple’s example for timely bug fixes and software updates
Sorry, Samsung, Google… Apple wins this round.
In the end, it’s great that two of the major Android phone makers are concerned about outdated bugs and issues. The problem I’m having here is precisely the fact that the bugs and issues that the Pixel 6 and Galaxy S22 series had now… Very Old.The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were released in October 2021, which means it took over Google Almost a year and a whole new version of Android To fix its two flagship phones that the company now supposedly has complete control over (Google makes software and hardware for the Pixel 6).
On the other hand, the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra were launched in February this year, making them eight months old. In the meantime, Samsung is about to send out a software update to fix the camera issues we discovered on the Galaxy S22 Ultra on day one. You can take a look at our complete work Galaxy S22 Ultra review.
Anyway, to take the story full circle, I should mention that a file The iPhone 14 Pro has been on sale for just over a week now. Meanwhile, some Somewhat serious bugs and issues were detected, but Apple was very quick to respond and a few days ago I was actually able to install the second update on my iPhone 14 Pro which fixes the bugs that appeared right after launch.
So, I don’t know if Google and Samsung intentionally waited to make their current phones better in time to launch the iPhone 14 series, but they can certainly take some cues from Cupertino when it comes to software updates and bug fixes, and in particular how fast they handle these things.
