Best Smartphones of 2022 (So Far)

Reviewing the top 10 best smartphones that I’ve unboxed and tested in 2022 so far, including my favourite camera phones, gaming handsets and those blowers offering the greatest value. From the Oppo Find X5 series and Realme GT2 (& GT 2 Pro) to the lovable Xiaomi 12 and Vivo X80 Pro, these are my picks for the best phones recently launched.

Of course we still have half the year left and there’s big devices like the Google Pixel 6a and Pixel 7, Xiaomi 12 Ultra and more lingering on the horizon. Also, if you’re on a tight budget, check out my review round-ups of the slickest smartphones under £400, £300 and £200 here on Tech Spurt.

My personal favourite handsets from 2022 include the Oppo Find X5 Pro, which is impressive in every area and costs from £1049 in the UK right now. The Xiaomi 12, which is the best compact blower with no compromise to battery life – like the S22 should have been. Also, the Realme GT2 phones are great value for money if you don’t mind losing some non-essential features like wireless charging.

Unboxing videos and reviews of all of these mobiles are live right now on the channel.
