For many years, businessmen and women from around the world relied on one brand to provide all the services they needed. That brand was Blackberry, and it was so popular that even Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z mentioned it on his 2003 single “Encore”. Fast forward a few years and the popularity of the brand has waned, as companies such as Samsung, HTC, and Apple have taken over the market.
The wide choice of handsets available means that business users can now choose a handset that fits their needs and the company’s requirements. Listed below are the most popular handsets available on the market right now, and the different features that make them stand out, above all the rest.
1. The Samsung S6 and S6 Edge
Following its release earlier this year, the Galaxy S6 has proven to be one of the most popular phones for business executives around the world. The sleek metal and glass casing has won over consumers, as has the 5.1-inch AMOLED display that boasts a staggering 577 pixels per inch.
The S6 is also one of the fastest phones on the market, and with various features such as split screen multitasking, the S Finder and Samsung’s Knox security suit that separates work and personal apps, this phone is a sure winner.
To top it all, its sister phone, the S6 Edge, has rounded edges on the display that make a big difference to how you use the phone. The sidebars display an information stream that displays texts, alerts and even the clock without lighting up the whole screen. The wireless charger that is available for both phones is also a great addition. It allows you the freedom of movement while you charge your phone without you having to worry about tripping over cables.
2. iPhone 6 Plus
Hailed as the perfect mix of design, hardware specifications, and app selection, the iPhone 6 plus is truly one of the smartphone market leaders. The 5.5-inch display is huge, and allows you to view documents and presentations with ease. The fast performance and wide range of business apps available from the app store also help this to be one of the most desirable phones there is.
The Touch ID fingerprint scanner located on the home button is the best of its kind at the moment and promises to offer unparalleled security for your documents. The extended battery life means that you can use it for longer, without worrying about the phone going off at that critical moment. An 8-megapixel camera means that this phone will be perfect for designers and photographers, as will the ability for the camera to take a 43-megapixel panoramic photo.
