THIS POLL HAS BEEN CLOSED. We will announce the winner of the Reader’s Choice Award for the best smartphone of 2022 on Friday, December 9.

We are currently in the midst of our annual Reader’s Choice event for the best smartphone of 2022, as chosen by you! Yesterday, we had the inaugural elimination round, in which 32 phones vied to make it into the top four. Now, those four winning phones will compete in the semi-finals!

The two phones in the lead should be unsurprising to anyone who’s followed mobile tech this year. With 25% of the vote, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is the big winner from yesterday’s elimination round, but the Google Pixel 7 Pro is right behind it with 23% of the vote.

The percentages drop down significantly from there. The vanilla Google Pixel 7 is in third place with 10% of the vote. Finally, the fourth-place contender is the Apple iPhone 14 Pro with 9% of the vote. You can see how the remaining 33% of the vote was distributed by heading to yesterday’s voting page.

Don’t head anywhere yet, though, because you’ll need to vote for today’s round below!
