            It is such a disappointment that the best premium midrange phone is still a more than 1 year old A52s. It tells you the sorry state of the phone market thanks to the chip shortage. And even worse that Samsung refused to build on that success for A53.

              Is there any way to get directly to the 2022 guide link without:
              Searching "guide" and then go to 2021 and then look down on 'similar articles" to find it?

                I would like a new category to be included here: that of the so-called 'Rugged phones', capable of withstanding immersion, humidity, heat and impact from falling (from reasonable heights). Even the test modes should be able to distinguish the real rugged models from those that are 'rugged' only on paper (... and from marketing): you can read too many users' comments complaining of failures just after a few times (if not once) of use in difficult and demanding environments.

                  Can we have a ultra budget smartphone category

                  We don't have a affordable budget smartphone category

                  No dirt cheap smartphone are getting in depth reviews or compared too each other
                  With there strengths and weakness compared too each other or buyers advice

                  for people who have very low income can't upgrade often or buy a expensive smartphone

                    One category is missing here: The best smartphones for sound and music.
                    For those who want to hear music at a high volume and high quality.
                    For those who like to watch clips, or put the phone on the table and hear in the room space.
                    Dual Front Facing Speakers Phones - for best sound experience.

                    Gaming phones can not be considered in this category, because they have other needs that ultimately affect product design and final price.

                          Cah Nglayab, 09 Jul 2022Uh I totally disagree with the Compact Phone part, 13 Mini ... moreiPhone 13 mini is not 2022 phones, all of my list is 2022.

                                pjcamp, 27 Jun 2022Can you please filter these things according to geography? ... moreAmerica is not the center of the world. You can find plenty of lists describing "the best phones" where all you see is samsung and iphone because the creator of the list is American. Your request is plain stupid.

                                      HAHA, since I have a S22 Ultra, I really cannot belive everyone who rates the camera as the best... I am not talking about the HW I am talking about the SW... a pice of s@#°§!!!
                                      Example: I chose the best quality option for pictures -> 100MP. Now I cannot switch to other leses anymore! WTF!!
                                      Other example: If I chose 4k60fps, I cannot switch to other leses anymore... again, WTF?!!

                                      This phone is so useless... how can you NOT take this into account when rating against other phones?
