The Best Smartphones For 2022

In 2022 the tech industry has gifted us with some great smartphones. Whether you want performance, camera smarts, or value, our ultimate list of the top 7 phones has it all.

The best phone on this list will not be the best for everyone, so look at all ten. The perfect phone for you is based on your priorities, including camera, battery life, design, features, pricing, and other factors.

Of course, Samsung and Apple are included, but searching farther afield to Android competitors such as OnePlus, Google, Oppo, and Xiaomi may lead you to your ideal pocket companion. These phones all deliver in different ways, which is a good thing. 

  1. Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

 While the S21 Ultra experimented with Note-like capabilities, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is undoubtedly a full-fledged successor to 2020’s Note 20 Ultra in every way except the name. It’s pricey, but it’s the greatest overall phone you can purchase now due to its outstanding performance and well-balanced features. The design is unusual from the other Galaxy S22 models and has an integrated S Pen that extends capabilities beyond most competitors, particularly in productivity.

Despite the familiar-looking camera hardware, Samsung’s enhancements make it one of the greatest systems in any phone, with a 108Mp primary shooter supported by an ultrawide and two telephoto lenses at various zoom levels – with zoom performance significantly improved over prior versions.

If you can tolerate its enormous size, it’s a great winner with the best software support in all Android, spanning five years.

  1. iPhone 14 Pro 

The regular iPhone 14 is a slight upgrade over the iPhone 13; therefore, the iPhone 14 Pro is quite a jump above its predecessor. Some of the changes are superficial, but when such a visual revamp as Dynamic Island debuts, it’s difficult not to notice.

Apple’s renowned screen notch has been reduced to a pill-shaped and circular shape below the top bezel, but the space has been filled with black pixels. Animations have been used to have notifications and app updates originate from the space, giving a purpose to the cutouts now present for cameras on most phone screens. It is incredibly ingenious and allows you to view the weather, timers, music playing, and other information at the top of the screen without opening an app.

Although it isn’t a significant improvement over the 13 Pro, the new iPhone will feel years ahead of its time if your phone is three or four years old.

  1. Google Pixel 6 Pro 

With the launch of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in 2021, Google upended everything by introducing its Tensor silicon, a redesigned Android 12 experience out of the box, a completely new design, and some noticeably improved cameras.

With a beautiful QHD+ curved-edge OLED display that switches to a faster, smoother 120Hz refresh rate for the first time in the series, the 6 Pro is an unmistakably large phone.

The camera system also uses a brand-new 50Mp primary sensor, which boasts a brilliant new function called Magic Eraser, a steadfast Face Unblur, and an astonishing dynamic range. Even if quick charging is a bit of a nuisance, the large 5003mAh battery offers some of the finest battery life on a Pixel.

  1. Oppo Find X5 Pro

By every standard, the Oppo Find X5 Pro is a fantastic phone. Oppo backs up its 6.7-inch, 10-bit, 120Hz QHD+ panel, one of the greatest displays on the phone right now, with a 5000mAh battery, 80W wired and 50W wireless charging, and a top-notch camera with 50Mp sensors on both the primary and ultrawide lenses.

With all the features mentioned above, plus a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, 256GB of storage, and 12GB of RAM, the Find X5 Pro is also difficult to top in terms of sheer performance. It doesn’t come cheap, so you must be willing to pay for it.

  1. iPhone 13 

While it lacks the high refresh rate display of the 13 Pro, the iPhone 13 still has cutting-edge technologies such as Apple’s newest 5nm A15 Bionic CPU and the latest camera capabilities such as Cinematic Mode.

While it lacks the high refresh rate display of the 13 Pro, the iPhone 13 still has cutting-edge technologies such as Apple’s newest 5nm A15 Bionic CPU and the latest camera capabilities such as Cinematic Mode.

The rear camera system is now diagonal, primarily to accommodate the impressive sensor-shift OIS that was exclusive to 2020’s iPhone 12 Pro Max, while on the front – despite the same 60Hz refresh rate as the previous model – you still get a stunning 6.1in OLED display with a smaller notch.

  1. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4

This is the greatest foldable phone available today at a price comparable to premium slab smartphones. Samsung claims that the Flip will withstand at least 200,000 open and shut actions, which amounts to around five years of regular use. The better battery is likely due to the greater energy efficiency of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This is essentially an S22 with a faster CPU that folds down to half its size.

  1. One Plus 10 Pro 

The newest OnePlus flagship phone is a solid alternative to the S22 or Pixel 6 series, especially if you live in the United States and have few other high-end Android alternatives.

The 10 Pro boasts basic specs to match everything its rivals offer, including a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and fast 80W wired charging, and someone might admire its clean design – though not everyone is.

The rear triple sensor configuration is remarkable. The OxygenOS user experience is excellent, and the battery life is among the greatest of any flagship available today.


When purchasing a phone, consider the following factors: build quality and design, simplicity of use, features, performance, and value. It’s worth mentioning that, while this list features the greatest smartphones available in 2022, it doesn’t necessarily include flagships. 

Purchasing a phone will generally provide the best value, but we understand economics in the real world does not often allow for such large one-time expenditures. Therefore, you can buy used phones that help you to save money but at the same time update your device.
