These days we need phones for everything. Especially using smartphone for work is a clever idea. Smartphones have revolutionized businesses. In fact, business has never been so fast paced and internet and smartphones are to be “blamed” for that.
But all of this can come to nothing if you have a phone that does not support your business’ features very well. Accessing your emails, workplace software and apps, websites, portals and what not – everything can be done on mobile now, provided you have the right one.
So if you want to buy a smartphone that helps with business but you don’t know which one to buy – you have come at the right place. We will be your eyes and ears.
Here are top 5 business phones you can buy in 2018.
1. Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is arguably the best business phone in the world. With a monster screen size of 6.2 inches, S8 Plus is ideal for reading emails and performing complex tasks in your business software. The main concern for any business phone is security. Fortunately, S8 Plus comes with Samsung’s Knox security, which they claim is as good as Blackberry.
The software is good and phone is fast. However, if we look at downsides; the phone is quite expensive and the fingerprint censor could’ve been better. 3,500mAh is also good and suitable for businessmen who travel a lot.
2. OnePlus 5
OnePlus 5 is a brilliant phone – probably the most well-balanced option in our list. The pricing is very good and the performance isn’t too bad either. The camera is quite exceptional but we won’t count it as it is not a particular business feature. It features a 1080p 5.5-inch AMOLED display on the front, and inside is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. However, a gigantic 6-8GB RAM is the real catch. The phone is super-fast.
In such pricing and performance, it is highly unlikely that you will find a better phone than this one. It has got everything a business phone should.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a very good business phone solution for you provided that you are ready to overlook the pricing. It is quite expensive and it has a weak sound as well. But other than that, everything is perfect. 6GB RAM and internal storage options of 64GB/128GB/256GB.
The S Pen stylus is not something other phones can offer and it is a very usable option for businessmen. When paired with the Dex dock, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is unstoppable.
4. BlackBerry Priv
No business phones’ list will be complete without mention of Blackberry. BlackBerry Priv is the first Android phone that has Android iOS. The display is amazing. Security is top-notch as you’d expect with a Blackberry phone.
John McCann, an expert reviewer at TechRadar says, “It’s still business in the front, but now there’s a party in the back too. It will divide opinion, but this is the best BlackBerry in years,”
5. Microsoft Lumia 950
Microsoft Lumia series is perhaps the most underrated one today. Since it is Microsoft’s phone, there are many useful business features you can use. For example, the Office 365 with support is included in the phone for one year. 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage means you can store many business apps and completely be “in office” even when it is not.
