The Best Business Smartphones
The ‘best in the business’
Few years back if you had to buy a business phone it was relatively easy as the only choice you had was BlackBerry. Nevertheless, with the rising acceptance of touchscreen devices, the Canadian phone-maker had to compete with the likes of Android and iOS. Right now the mobile industry has multiple platforms ready to cater to the business users. Technically, all smartphones can be business phones. But, only a few of them offer the candid UI and reliability — both are vital factors when choosing a business phone. Based on these criteria, we are providing a list of handsets ideal for business.
HTC One M8
It’s been declared as the “best mobile phone in the world”, and rightly so, as the HTC One M8 amalgamates excellent design with brilliant functionality. If you are keen to make a statement, next time you enter a meeting have the HTC One M8 in your hand. It will surely compete with the iPhone in terms of premium style and boardroom presence. Its full HD, 5-inch display is stunning to look at and the effective quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM guarantees you will never be short of power.
Nokia Lumia 830
With its smooth metallic frame, the Lumia 830 is the iPhone of the Windows Phone world. It features a sophisticated design that makes ingenious use of glass, polycarbonate, and metals. To make sure, it appeals to executives, Nokia offers the Lumia 925 in white, grey and black. Throw powerful battery life in the combination, and you get an ideal business phone.
Sony Xperia Z2
If you are looking for something a little more modest, yet still superior and authoritative the Sony Xperia Z2 is just the one for you. A smooth, built-up design coupled with powerful specs including a quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM(equivalent to the best in the market), 5.2-inch full HD display and an extraordinary 20.7MP camera means the Xperia Z2 is a high performer all round. Built in noise cancelling technology means calls will be clearer, and crisper when you find yourself in blaring environments.
Google Nexus 5
If you want the best features to price ratio from your smartphones then you will need to take a look at the Android KitKat running Google Nexus 5. Manufactured by LG the Nexus 5 sports a remarkable 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 4.95-inch full HD display and the latest version of the powerful Android OS. It is stunningly designed and even excels in the simple matter of making telephone calls.
The Q10 is still quite pricey, so if you are keen to have a fleet of business focused handsets which will be easy on your pocket take a look at the mid-range BlackBerry Q5. It does not look as chic, nor feels as superior as the Q10 (the remote buttons on the keyboard is very much a marmite feature), but the Q5 is still a highly capable smartphone. As far as reasonably priced smartphones go with a focus on messaging, internet and business the BlackBerry Q5 is one of the best in its class.
Business users can be difficult to please, especially when it comes to smartphones. Today’s users normally desire a modest design, multifaceted features, consistent web access, a solid camera and easy-to-use keyboard. We’ve suggested our picks but always buy one that meets your professional requirements.
