Ridiculously enough, the early 2022-released 6.6-inch giant with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor under the hood is still priced at $999.99 and up on its manufacturer’s official US website. While you should absolutely not pay that much for any member of the S22 family in 2024, Woot is running a limited-time sale that may well be worth your attention… and 490 bucks of your hard-earned money.
The Fan Edition device is obviously a lot younger, having only seen daylight around four months ago, but with the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, a smaller 6.4-inch screen, arguably inferior camera system, and slower charging capabilities, we’re definitely not convinced it’s the better choice for Android power users on a budget.
Technically scheduled to run until February 16, Woot’s latest and greatest promotion for this device could well go away earlier than that if demand is strong enough, in which case it’s probably a good idea to keep an Amazon deal in the back pocket. For instance, the S22+ can be purchased at more than $100 less right now in “renewed” condition with no warranty. That’s… not exactly ideal, but if you want to keep your spending to an absolute minimum, it might be worth all the risks and possible compromises.
