The Smallest Smartphones With The Best Camera (2022)

The Smallest Smartphones With The Best Camera


This is the international top 10 list. Click here to check out the US version.

If there's a thing that's getting hard to find, it's a small smartphone with a great camera set.

Nowadays, manufacturers are ignoring the fact that there are still people who don't like to carry 7-inch devices all day long. With that in mind, every incredible camera-phone that came out in the last couple of years has at least 6.4 inches of screen size.

What that means is if you really value tinier devices, you'll have to settle for a smaller, inferior camera phone, like Huawei's P40 or Samsung's S10e.

But it gets even more complicated if you add a limited budget to the equation.

Well, this might just be your lucky day, because not only you're about to see the top 10 smallest best camera-phones on the market, but you'll also have access to a top10 list that fits your wallet.

Tips: Prices marked with ! are from renewed/refurbished/carrier-locked phones. You can also find links to Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, and Walmart (and updated prices) in any comparison article.
