List of the Best Five New Mobile Devices Coming Out in 2022: It’s the last day of the year, and that means it’s time to take stock of everything that happened over the past 365 days. There were almost 500 brand-new smartphone models introduced, and many of them were excellent.
Some of my coworkers are crazy with foldable, while others opted for cameraphones, and by hearing their top five picks for 2022, patterns become readily apparent. Simply put, high-end tech is my jam.
For over a decade, I have covered the mobile industry as a writer, with the last six years spent at GSMArena. I’ve witnessed a lot of progress and development, but I still think 2022 is prime time for a flagship release. That’s why the five products I’ve chosen as the best overall represent the best of their respective brands. No particular ranking is intended; I enjoy them all equally.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
This mobile device first appeared in the marketplace in February. I had my doubts about whether or not customers were ready for a new phone to replace the Galaxy Note line, which has been discontinued. Having an S Pen on my Samsung Galaxy S phone was disconcerting, and I didn’t like the angular look of the Note.
Once I was able to use the phone, all of my concerns melted away. Compared to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which was already a formidable camera, this one is a minor improvement, and the phone’s user interface is a delight to navigate. Thanks to the S Pen, you now have access to all the cool features that were previously only available on the Galaxy Note line.
Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra is a hefty fella. As a result of its height and width, it is extremely awkward to manipulate. Humans, fortunately, are adaptable beings, so the size wasn’t a problem after the initial few days. The large screen, long-lasting battery, and ample internal space are the trade-offs for the bulk of such a powerful device.
The Latest Google Pixel 7 Pro
Since I enjoy photography so much, it stands to reason that I would choose a smartphone equipped with a powerful telephoto lens. I enjoy capturing photos of wildlife from a safe distance to avoid disturbing them.
Despite having a smaller sensor, the Pixel 7 Pro still has a 5x optical zoom. In addition to optical image stabilization, it features Google’s industry-leading technology for producing sharp images.
When compared to Samsung’s approach, I like Google’s since it adds vivid hues without drowning out the picture or increasing the contrast to absurd levels. Likewise, I’m a big fan of Google’s night-photo algorithm because it consistently delivers stunningly realistic results. They don’t seem unduly processed, and the camera doesn’t appear to be fumbling around with computational science to figure out what it’s seeing.
The Huawei Mate 50 Pro
Maybe I’m in the minority here, but I think Huawei can turn things around. I have spoken with many senior Huawei executives in different parts of the world, and the one thing they all have in common is their will to see Huawei through the current geopolitical tensions.
As the latest example, we have the Huawei Mate 50 Pro. Of course, the phone is missing some of the most basic features that we need every day, but it manages to get by very admirably thanks to the company’s suite of apps. Petal Search performs admirably, Petal Maps provides all the basics we need in a navigation tool, and AppGallery’s approach to searching for apps outside of its store is an intriguing way to get over the limitations that currently exist.
As this is a phone list, I’ll explain why I think the Huawei Mate 50 Pro is deserving of its high position: I find it to be attractive and powerful, and I find the display and battery life to be nothing short of remarkable. The price is a little higher than I would like, and it doesn’t have 5G for the same reasons it doesn’t have GMS, but that’s not a deal killer for me. The Mate 50 Pro has everything I could want in a phone: a beautiful design, solid performance, and excellent long-range photography.
The Xiaomi Ultra 12S
While we’re on the subject of smartphones with serious faults, I must say that I was quite dissatisfied with how Xiaomi handled the release of the 12S Ultra. Although we did bring the phone, our team conducted the review with the proverbial elephant in the room staring us down the entire time. The fact that the phone is only available in China undermines Xiaomi’s reputation as a world-class producer.
However, I recently had the opportunity to test out the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, and I was immediately impressed by everything about it. The camera’s layout is fantastic; rather than a cluster of sensors and a screen, as with the Mi 11 Ultra, we have a single large circle and a leather back.
I hope the phone lives up to the expectations set forth in this essay. This flagship model from Xiaomi achieves that goal. It had the most recent processor, a large QHD+ display, and a large battery that could be charged quickly via wireless charging. The major attraction is, of course, the 1″ type camera with PDAF and OIS.
Together, Xiaomi and Leica fine-tuned the camera’s processing, resulting in the “Leica Authentic” shooting mode. Colors look accurate, unlike on many other devices that artificially boost hue and saturation to make photographs pop. Because of the 12S Ultra from Leica, I can capture life as it really is, complete with all its shadows, blemishes, and deep tones.
The Newest 14 Pro Max from Apple
I have never tried to hide my adoration for Apple products. When it comes to Tim Cook and the company, there’s one thing that really bugs me: the Apple tax that they add to everything. In spite of this, I think the iPhone 14 Pro Max is easily the greatest smartphone to be released in 2022.
Some of you may have noticed that I prefer large phones; I prefer to see my media on screens that are both bright and spacious. In addition, I find great pleasure in photography, and the enhancements Apple has made to the iPhone 14 Pro Max are really noteworthy. The new 12 MP ultra-wide sensor with dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus and the new 48 MP camera with quad-Bayer pixel binning is fantastic.
Even now, Apple is alone in the image processing market. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of how far the HDR goes in some of the shots, but even so, they’re gorgeous. When it comes to images of humans, Apple is unrivaled; the business captures every nuance and flaw that makes each of our faces special. Less computational science is used than in other contexts.
Please keep in mind that, as I mentioned at the outset of this piece, the purpose of this Top 5 is not to rank one gadget as superior to another. Though some are more expensive than I would have liked, all five of these smartphones are worthy of their spot among the best of 2022.
