1/5 The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is our favourite! Samsung’s colour tuning is amazing and its 108MP camera can do wonders at night. The 10X optical zoom camera is great for photographers, and the video recording performance is impressive. Even portrait photos have great bokeh effects and subject cutout, both from its front and rear camera sensors. Great deal on Amazon right now: Rs. 99,999 for the base 256GB model.
