Reviewing the best stock Android smartphones in summer 2022, including Google’s Pixel 6a, 6 and Pro (still boasting some of my favourite camera tech of any phone), Asus’ Zenfone 9, the Nothing Phone 1 and lots of top rivals. These stock Android handsets cover a range of budgets from affordable to flagship and they’re all among the best you’ll find at their price points.
I’ve shot a full unboxing and in some cases full reviews of the Pixel 6a, Nothing Phone, Zenfone 9 and the other smartphones mentioned in this round-up. So if any of them have buffed your melons, then check out my coverage!
When it comes to camera smarts, the Pixel 6 series has hot competition these days. That mid-range Google smartphone, the 6a, holds up well despite the older hardware. You can still shoot impressive photos and video for a budget friendly version of those Android flagship phones.
However, the Zenfone 9 and Nothing Phone 1 are close behind with their excellent IMX766 sensor and AI smarts. The Asus blower is another delightful compact device, one of the best mini mobiles of 2022 with its excellent battery life and impressive performance.
If you’re on a tighter budget, UK tech fans can grab the Moto Edge 20 series or new Moto G82, or even the super-cheap Nokia G11.
