5 Smartphones Built for Serious Business

business smartphoneThe smartphone is becoming one of the most reliable tools of any business person. They have essentially become every business execs personal assistant as they keep them organized, meetings in place, and allow them to check email and set appointments regardless of their location. However, just as prepaid phones are not suited for some, not all smartphones are created equal, and there are a few that will serve a business better than others.

It may come as a surprise, but there aren’t going to be any Apple iPhone’s listed below. When it comes to the type of phone that any business person needs, the iPhone’s inability to obtain 4G service and lack of customization features doesn’t give it the workhorse like power most businesses need.

A few of the best business smartphones on the market include:

Samsung Galaxy S2

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is an Android based phone that has dominated the smartphone industry this year. Upon its release, it was immediately dubbed the fastest smartphone around, and was stated to be better than the iPhone by numerous critics. This phone has a great screen, a large display, and is definitely backed by a high end processor and 4G capabilities making it an exceptionally fast phone.

HTC Thunderbolt

The HTC Thunderbolt is by all means the undisputed workhorse of smartphones. This phone operates on Android, is easily customizable, has 4G capabilities, and a pretty good battery life for phone with the lightning fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The Thunderbolt also has a larger display making checking emails, screening callers, and doing basics, like reading the daily news, easy.

Motorola Atrix

Lightweight, durable, and customizable, the Motorola Atrix is the best smartphone for a business person on the go and in a rougher environment. Project managers and engineers love this phone, and it has a clear and large display adequate for email and quick typing.

HTC Evo 4G

The HTC Evo 4G, like the Thunderbolt, was designed to be a workhorse, but has a few processing features that make it a bit different. It comes with the same 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and has the ability for 32GB of additional storage. The Evo also comes loaded with Google mobile services that make it incredibly useful.

BlackBerry Curve 8530

BlackBerry has long been the brand choice of business persons as its Qwerty keyboard makes typing and sending a breeze. The phone also comes with a variety of unique features, and has the best battery life of other BlackBerry smartphones. The phone also comes packed with GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth which makes it a very useful tool for business professionals on the go.


A simple cell phone won’t cut it in the business world anymore. With everything gravitating solely in to the online world, business professionals need to have access to the internet at all times, and a smartphone allows that. However, business persons need to keep in mind the type of phone that would work best for them as the right tool is always the most effective when trying to get a job done.
