I blog regularly!
Last time when I was buying a phone, I looked for
- RAM and CPU speed
- Screen size, display and touch quality
- Good battery life
so that I can edit, interlink, optimize and post drafted content on the go on smaller screens with ease.
Based on these factors, I think these are the best phones for blogging in 2022

|Microsoft Surface Duo 2||5.8 inch when folded8.3 inch when expanded||1892 x 2688 pixels||8GB||Snapdragon 888||4449mAh|
In the following section, I explained why RAM, CPU, Screen size, Display, Battery life are important for a good blogging phone.
RAM and Processor
Let it be phone or PC, you will be dealing with content management systems or website builders. Most of them come with advanced features like drag and drop.
These features involve AJAX and similar JS scripts. To process these scripts, your phone should have good processing and RAM.
Ideally, a phone for blogging requires at least 6GB of RAM and a decent octa-core processor.
The phone display is also important. You’ll want to make sure your phone has a great screen resolution and brightness.
Retina, OLED, AMOLED screens are better for finding minute details and pin-pointing touch.
When it comes to choosing a phone for blogging, the most important thing to consider is the size of the screen.
It goes without saying, smaller screen phones are difficult to edit, let alone writing.
A good 6.5 inch + phones makes it easy to access all the features on blogging apps like Blogger, WordPress, and Wix.
Battery life is another important factor for a phone for blogging.You’ll want a phone that can last through a full day of use, especially if you’re planning to blog on the go.
Phones with 4,400mAh or more can stand a day longer even with blogging activities on the phone.
