Best smartphone 2022: We test, rate and rank

year : 2022

If you already know which phone operating system you're going with, you might find it easier to zoom in on our best Android phones or best iPhone guides.  And if the prices listed below are a bit high, you might want to consider checking out a mid-range smartphone or entry-level mobile device.

However, putting these rankings together we don't just consider the performance of a single phone;  We also place a lot of emphasis on the price tag and the overall value of the device.

We've seen a lot of Pixel phones enter the market over the years, but none have lived up to the typical expectations of a flagship device.  That's completely changed with the Pixel 6 Pro

If the 'standard' iPhone 13 is the right device for most people who want an iOS device, then the iPhone 13 Pro is the model for those who care a little more about their phone's performance.  If you want a true flagship experience from Apple, this is it.

Although we tested all the Galaxy S22 models of our time, but ultra is comfortable in the most complete, flagship offering from Samsung. It is also a different model from your brother sisters, which is now taking a large dose of inspiration from the retired note series.

Some of the other devices on this list may not have the pull of a big name, but Oppo's Find X5 Pro is a serious player;  One that should be high on the wish list of those in the market for a top-notch flagship.

The iPhone 13 lineup is once again made up of four phones — and, thankfully, each model is still very defined for different types of users.

OnePlus - for the past few years - has offered an ultra-premium flagship that doesn't cost as much as the others.  The same is true of the OnePlus 10 Pro.

It represents a risky pick in our view, but with the latest flagships from Xiaomi the height is so high that it's hard to even leave it out of the very top flagship phones.
