The holiday season is approaching, so it’s time to move on to December. It’s time to sort out our November tests a bit and pick out three champions. After several months monopolized by the heavyweights Apple, Samsung and Google, we are on a more heterogeneous month with Motorola and Nokia.
There is not a month without a smartphone test at Frandroid, and November is no exception. After two months marked by heavyweights, all candidates to join our guide to the best smartphones, this month is calmer, but not uninteresting.
This is an opportunity for brands that we hear less about, such as Nokia or Motorola, to put themselves forward and integrate our Top 3 recent smartphones of December 2022. These are the three phones tested last month which our editorial staff liked the most. Let’s go for our monthly selection.
- original size
- External screen that really serves
The first is undoubtedly one of the rarest formats there is, since it is the Motorola Razr 2022, a folding smartphone in clamshell format. Compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4, it knows how to distinguish itself by providing a much more useful and large external screen, as well as a less flattened and therefore more comfortable format for watching videos or playing games.
Be careful however, the price to pay to be a follower of beginnings is quite important, and we do not mean that on the pecuniary level. Indeed, the phone will only be supported up to Android 14 and like the Galaxy Z Flip 4, it does not include a telephoto lens.
- Very thin and light
- Power to spare
- Quick charge

If you’re looking for more traditional phones, still at Motorola, this month we tested and rather liked the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion. Halfway between the excess of an Edge 30 Ultra and the economy of an Edge 30 Neo, it opts for solid fundamentals, namely great power with its Snapdragon 888+ and a beautiful screen.
It also happens to stand out with a thin and pleasant design and a sleek interface. His only weaknesses are one; lack of photo versatility and updates that will stop at Android 14.
- Three years of warranty and updates
- Android Go
- Looks good in photos

And why not Nokia? If you didn’t know, the brand continues to release smartphones and the Nokia G60 is holding up pretty well. Under the bar of 350 euros, it does not stand out so much for its technical sheet (very correct by the way) as for a real interesting proposition in terms of durability: the phone is guaranteed for three years and it is updated for three years. In this price range, it’s almost unheard of.
Of course, it operates a few concessions, the first of which is its LCD screen for which you should not be too demanding. The presence of a charging block would also have been welcome.
