Reviewing the best camera phones you can buy in 2022, including the top smartphone snappers from Samsung, Apple, Sony, Google and more. The Pixel 6 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra are still some of my favourite camera phone options right now, but the S22 Ultra, Xiaomi 12 and Xperia 1 Mark 4 are just around the corner. I’ve personally tested and reviewed all of these mobiles, check out my coverage here on Tech Spurt!

I’ve also published my round up of the best upcoming smartphones in 2022, so check that out for a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy S22 family, Oppo Find X4 Pro, Realme GT 2 and more.

The Pixel 6 Pro and regular Google Pixel 6 are still two of my favourite devices when it comes to shooting great looking family photos. If you’re more into video, check out the iPhone 13 or Samsung’s Galaxy S21 (including the new FE model, although you have no 8k option). And if you want full manual control, definitely check out the Sony Xperia 1 III or 5 III.

On a tighter budget? I’ll be covering the best mid-range and affordable camera smartphones in a new video soon!

Along the boring intro bit, i greatly enjoyed jumping right on to the cheapest phone´s section. In the name of my two fantastic nipples i just don´t care the bloody boring expensive ones.

You may have heard about the new Leica Smartphone with a 1" sensor and the Sony Pro 1 with the same size sensor. The question is: Do they both use the full sensor? Maybe not. I heard Sony only uses 12MP of a larger sensor of about 18MP or 20MP. I don´t know about Leica which is only available in Japan, as of now.
My choice is to spend the $1,000€+ for a phone on a real camera that shoots RAW, (A larger file of everything coming in.), and a $200€ or less phone, so I can talk and shoot at the same time. Any MFT Panasonic can shoot much better videos than any smartphone with a better steady shot and much better lenses.
The sensor size is double the size of the 1" Sony and Leica models. The pixels are more than 3x the size.
you can buy a Nikon D750 for about $1,300€ or a D780 for a few hundred more with 4K, a full-frame, and the largest pixel size around, (Except for the Sony IIIs.). Also, there are also a few very good Sony/Panasonic/Canon 4K video cameras (Some with Night-Shot), for about $550€ to $900€. Always test and compare on your own. Now you know.

Word Warrior says:

As far as I know… There is no such thing as Zeiss or Leica, "Glass" on
anything but Zeiss or Leica cameras.
It has been known for over 30 years. The name and the specs. are sold to
Sony and Panasonic. Today, Sigma makes the new "L" lenses for Leica and
Panasonic. The So. Korean, Samyang, and a few Chinese lenses are out
for a few years, albeit, many, without autofocus, yet. My very sharp
18-35 3.5 Nikon, (Bought used for 550€.) was made in China about 5 years
ago, SOOOO. My rule is always test and compare on your own, then find
the best price.

Programming with Professor Sluiter says:

How do I get shots of old cathedrals and English pubs with my fancy camera? Around here (USA) everything is Starbucks and suburban shopping mall vibe with churches being housed in architecture that could also be a store shop in a shopping center. Why do you tempt us with shots like these???
