One of the editors of the GSMArena portal named the five best smartphones released in 2022. The list includes iPhone 14 Pro, basic Google Pixel 7, Asus Zenfone 9, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Oppo Find N.
It is noted that the iPhone 14 Pro received one of the best cameras on the market and the most productive Apple A16 Bionic chip. GSMArena also singles out the iPhone due to Apple’s long-term software support. The disadvantages of the smartphone include the lack of a periscopic camera, which can be found in Android flagships, and the weight of the smartphone – 204 and 214 grams in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, respectively.
The base Pixel 7 was praised for its compact size, quality screen, flagship main camera and low price tag compared to the competition. One of the main disadvantages of the Pixel 7 is the operation of the ultra-wide-angle camera in low light.
The expert noted the high performance of the Asus Zenfone 9 smartphone, which is achieved due to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and the main 50-megapixel camera. The only drawback of the device was called asymmetric frames around the screen.
The foldable Galaxy Z Fold4 and Oppo Find N were also named the best smartphones of 2022 by GSMArena due to improved ergonomics compared to the competition, high performance, quality screens and no crease at the fold.
