Even in summer, the routine continues: on Frandroid, we test phones over and over again, always with the goal of finding out which are the best smartphones of the year. In this noble quest, we allow ourselves a few monthly points to step back, look in the rear view mirror, and determine the cream of the crop among the tools that have recently passed through our hands.

So, in the last month of July, we have again crossed many smart cell phones that are worth promoting. This allows us to list you the three most recent smartphones in Frandroid at the beginning of August 2022.

No phone (1)

  • A unique design
  • Good in-game power
  • Full phone

Available at €469 on Amazon

The Nothing phone (1) is the first smartphone from the brand founded by Carl Pei – ex-boss of OnePlus – and in order not to miss its first steps in this difficult market, the company wants to keep everything in one iconic design. In addition to the flat edges reminiscent of the iPhone, it also and above all has a relatively transparent back and a part covered with LED strips that illuminate it with each notification clearly that you can customize if like At the aesthetic level, it is clearly separate and this originality will obviously please some users.

In addition to that, the Nothing phone (1) is nice in the hand, benefits from a 120 Hz Oled screen, good game performance and a good main camera. Everything is covered in a Nothing OS interface that is simple to learn, refined, but not without good ideas. However, there are some bugs here and there that may occur, but hopefully they will be resolved soon. Especially since the updates seem to be in the spotlight: the brand promises three deployments of new versions of Android and four years of security patches. Do not hesitate to explore the best Nothing phone tricks (1) to take full advantage of it.

Google Pixel 6a

  • Very good in photography for this price
  • Small format pleases the hand
  • The Pixel software experience

Available at €459 on Amazon

The Google Pixel 6a does not make the same strategic choices as the previously mentioned competitor. Its excellent design does not change anything and above all the content is compatible with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. But this is a strong point because the content format is very pleasing to the hand. Also note the beautiful Pixels interface and its simplicity. It also packs in clever little features here and there, often based on the intelligence of Google Assistant. However, the great strength of the smartphone is in the photography segment, the quality of which is also praised by DxOMark. We especially recommend the portrait mode and the night mode which clearly have an incomparable and much appreciated Google touch.

So the photo is the flagship asset of the smartphone for less than 500 euros. On the other hand, to take advantage of it, you have to make big compromises and we think especially of the screen limited to 60 Hz or the charging which is capped at 18 W and therefore very slow. In short, there is a clear Google Pixel 6a vs Nothing phone (1) match, a photography champion against a balanced phone. What will you choose?

Asus Zenfone 9

  • Compact smartphone
  • Ultra autonomy
  • Very powerful

Available at € 799 at Fnac

The Asus Zenfone 9 is the top-of-the-range smartphone in this Top 3. And unlike most phones of its caliber, it has a very small format with a screen below the 6-inch mark (5.9 inches ). This is a very rare thing in 2022. Even more rare, despite its compact format, it is very good in autonomy. He is a marathon runner of small stature. Another important quality: its performance is very good and makes it possible to run the necessary games very fluidly (at the cost of a little heating that is not prohibited). So Asus is true to its history and thus swims against the tide. But maybe that’s the only way his phone will light up.

The quality of the screen is also good and if you want to fully immerse yourself in the content you are consuming, you can plug in a wired headset. Yes, there is a 3.5 mm jack on the Asus Zenfone 9! Again, this is a rare thing in 2022 at the high end.
