What are the best mobile phones for 2022 in the UK?

After a year of innovation and development from the leaders in the mobile phone industry in 2021, 2022 has some amazing devices that will put you on the cutting edge of mobile phone development. Models such as the iPhone 13 have had time to iron out any bugs and we have a firm guide to the best mobile phones available as we move into 2022.

Best Android phone for 2022 – Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

For fans of Android you can’t go wrong with Samsung’s flagship phone the Galaxy S21 Ultra. With all the bells and whistles Samsung really has gone all out with this device. Featuring a AMOLED 6.8 inch screen, a 5000mAh battery, and a 12 megapixel quad camera and a high end design there’s only really one device we can recommend for the top of the list for Android, although it does come with a fairly hefty price tag of around £1000.

Best budget Android phone for 2022 – Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro

If you’re looking for a phone that delivers on performance but doesn’t come close to the four figure price tag the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is that you need. with it’s LCD 2400 x 1080 display and a 120Hz refresh rate (super smooth!), amazing battery life and still very fast processor (considering it’s age) the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro comes top of our list for a budget mobile phone that will do you proud in 2022. How much is it? You can pick up a brand new one for as little as £200! Not to be overlooked at the upper end of the Xiaomi range is the Poco F3 smartphone, this is comparable to some of the leading phones available on the market as we near the end of 2021, although the design and camera aren’t quite there yet it still packs a punch at around £330.

Best Apple phone for 2022 – Apple iPhone 13 Pro

As you might expect, the flagship phone is the best offering when it comes to the iOS operating system. Packed with features that Apple has polished and perfected over the years. You do however pay a premium for the pro features, which are relatively minimal compared to the iPhone 13. So what are the main differences? The iPhone 13 Pro has the “ProMotion” display, 2GB extra ram, a 5 core GPU, better battery life, one more lens to play with for budding photographers, and x6 optical zoom vs x2. So it’s down to you whether you opt for the iPhone 13 or the Pro version. If you’re into gaming and photography we recommend the Pro at £949, if you just need a cutting edge phone that gets the job done then the Apple iPhone 13 will do you proud… as it should for £779.
