If you want a completely untouched Android smartphone then the Pixel 7 series and that affordable 6a are the way forwards. Especially as you get Google exclusive features and some of the best camera phone action in 2022.

The Nothing Phone 1 is a strong rival on a budget however. While the Pixel 6a is slightly better for the camera action, this smartphone offers wireless charging and some other cool features for the price. Likewise the Moto G82 and Nokia X30 are good value for money.

I’m also a massive fan of the Asus Zenfone 9, one of my favourite and ultimately best mobiles of 2022. Watch out for my round up of the greatest phones of the year, coming soon!
