    The 2022 holiday season is upon us and you know what that means, shopping, and lots of it! Whether you're looking to pick up gifts for friends and family or simply an end of the year treat for yourself, there's plenty to choose from.

    We've put together this handy SamMobile Holiday Gift Guide to help you with your purchase decisions. There are plenty of options here, from the best Samsung phones to great IoT devices and accessories to help make your life easier.

    It's best to go ahead and place your orders now so that they arrive before the holidays. Leave it too late and your packages may not deliver before Christmas or even the new year, which is not something you'd appreciate!

    Smartphones

    We might be a bit biased here, but it's hard to deny that Samsung makes some of the best smartphones on the planet. The company's 2022 lineup offers great options across the entire price spectrum. It even includes foldable smartphones that really make the perfect gift this holiday season.

    Galaxy Z Flip 4
