Tuve el iPhone 11, 12 y 13 pro max, pero me llamo mucho la atención el S22 Ultra y vendí mi iPhone 12 para poder comprarlo, se nota la mejora en la pantalla, el audio, las cámaras (los iPhone siempre le meten un filtro amarillento a las fotos), y además el SPen es muy útil, pensé que no lo usaría mucho y ahora lo uso prácticamente para todo, tomar notas, editar videos, editar fotos, dibujar, tomarme fotos desde lejos, y grabarme a metros cuando salgo solo. Increible su rendimiento, pantalla, batería, sonido y su capa de personalización.
