Is the quality of your smartphone equal to the quality of your business? Find out which three smartphones are the best for your business in 2021
As the business landscape continues to change, change made even more intense thanks to the global events of last year, people have been made to re-evaluate their technological needs. Maybe in the past, you compromised, and that could have materialized through a slow PC, an underperforming internet connection, or through a smartphone that was at least three years old. The fact of the matter is that now, more than ever, and especially if you’re working from home or pursuing a side hustle, your tech must fully support your business needs, aspirations and goals. While all three of the items mentioned above (PC, internet & smartphone) should ideally be firing on all cylinders, we’re going to focus on the one you’re using the most – your smartphone.
Whether it’s your passion or something you’re good at, your business lets you earn an income, and your income lets you do life. Thus, the smartphone you elect to use needs to tick a certain set of boxes. For instance, it needs to last, like really last between charges. It should have a screen big enough to accommodate all applicable apps and tasks. A solid warranty and support with timeous outcomes should also be part and parcel, as should the specifications – what could be more annoying than having to constantly delete apps or free up memory? Let us now look at three of the best smartphone for your business with all this in mind.
1. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
While the prohibitive price might put most people off, if you can afford the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, then you should “swipe right.”
Released in the latter part of 2020, this aesthetically pleasing phone weighs 208 grams and provides screen dimensions of 164.8 x 77.2 x 8.1mm. That’s more screen space than most would need and, coupled with the S Pen stylus, makes your usage of the device so much more practical. One could even go as far as to say that this smartphone sports everything you need for your business. It can handle online excel sheets, performing advanced CFD trading or general and demanding multitasking, and run several apps simultaneously. A Snapdragon 865 Plus / Exynos 990 CPU will be found under the hood, backed by 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage space – enough for you to keep everything.
2. The iPhone 12
Unlike the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the iPhone 12 costs less, and because it’s Apple, it is sure to deliver more than just a bang-for-buck business phone. However, a lesser price does equate to a lesser phone. In the case of the iPhone 12, this is realized through its smaller dimensions, lower screen resolution, and 4GB of RAM. On the plus, it’s got 5G capabilities, meaning it’s a speedy little thing that won’t give you any lags when you’re sending out that email with your invoice in it just before the COB (close of business).
3. The Google Pixel 5
If you’re worshipping at the altar of Android with no plans to change your denomination, then what better phone to confirm your devotion than the Google Pixel 5? Brought to you by the makers of Android, this smartphone offers a stylish and refreshing metal case, thus making for a more robust and safer unit.
Released in early 2020, this phone’s price makes it more competitive, while the easy-to-use interface means that you’ll be able to go about your business with less fuss. 5G compatibility, a Snapdragon 765G, and 8GB of RAM completes the package.
