The Galaxy S22 series has become the first choice for every Android user to choose the premium device. All the features have maintained their performance score, except a few. Like every year, we can see some new apps from Samsung for premium phones. This year too, they have launched the Expert RAW app for flagship models, Walkie-Talkie app for Wear OS 3-powered Galaxy Watch 4, and Buds for Windows for earbuds. It has also improved Game Optimizing Service, Samsung Internet, Camera Controller, and PPT Controller features.
In that, Expert RAW & GOS apps have also come to the Galaxy S22 lineup. The first one is a camera app to improve its capability, but the other reduces the speed in some areas like gaming. Samsung has promised to remove GOS from the phone, so we are not going to talk about it here. Instead, we look for other essential apps that you can use with new devices. It is cherry on top when you use Galaxy S22 to its maximum potential. These are the top 10 apps for Galaxy S22, S22+ & S22 Ultra in the Play Store or Galaxy Store.
1. Expert RAW
In the last few years, Samsung was lacking in the camera department due to short support. There were third-party apps like Google Camera, but they never satisfied Galaxy users. It is a reason, Samsung finally launched its own Expert RAW app. Without a doubt, it is my first choice when it comes to the camera app. Last month, Samsung has launched a stable Expert RAW app for Galaxy S22 series. It gives extra wings to your photography in HDR mode to low-light images. You can read more about it from my other article. The app is available in Galaxy Store.

2. Samsung Community
The platform to get support for your Samsung smartphone and share your knowledge. The Samsung Community app posts news, phone updates, leaks, reviews, app launching, questions, and answers. If you have any Galaxy device-related questions, then you can ask in it. On the other hand, if you know the answer, then you help other users. It is a neat & clean app compared to the Samsung Members app. Samsung’s app has become messy these days due to lots of spam and unwanted image sharing. For quick help, use the Samsung Community app. Note that it is not an official app.

8. Nova Launcher
I still remember when I first time used the Nova Launcher theme on Samsung Galaxy S2 in 2011. The 11 years have passed but still, Nova Launcher is the first choice of many users. It is the third-party home screen replacement tool that works on most Android phones. It is a lightweight solution that doesn’t impact performance. It offers plenty of themes to use with a custom app drawer, app icons, screen modes, gestures, and widgets. A decade has passed but Nova Launcher has still maintained 4.6-star ratings in the Play Store.
