Best Phones For Business in 2019
Finding the right balance between the best smartphone for personal use, and the best smartphone for business use can be difficult in a market that is already saturated to the brim. It feels as though there is a brand new range of phone, from all of the top brands, ready to be released right after the latest model has been snapped up by customers. In this article you'll find our top business smartphone picks for 2019 - and while you've probably heard about a few of them, there may be a few surprises in store for you too!
1. iPhone 11

It will come as no surprise that Apple appears so early on this list, and the latest iPhone 11 has been making a statement all year. If your business uses other Apple products to run, then it's a no-brainer that you should have an iPhone that can integrate seamlessly with all of your other devices.
You'll get all of the user-friendly features you have come to know and love from an Apple, and if you've never had an iPhone, then you're in for a treat. Video calling from your smartphone is smooth as well, and with a camera as high quality as the iPhone 11, you won't miss a thing. Another significant feature is that the iPhone 11 offers wireless charging and boasts the most extended battery life ever for an iPhone, beating out other smartphones as well, which means you'll always be connected throughout the day.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 10

The Note has become synonymous with the business for some time now, and for a good reason. Samsung has been hard at work to bring the public a phone that is as productive as they are. With the Note 10, they've boosted the battery life and specs such as the display and integration with Android 9 Pie with Samsung One UI interface.
The S Pen has also been optimised for more efficient performance, and it is believed that this is the closest experience to pen on paper around. The Note is also capable of turning handwriting into text and exporting into a wide variety of formats such as Word and PDF. The most attractive feature, however, is the Samsung DeX that, along with a monitor, turns your smartphone into an actual desktop computer! The Note 10 is quite expensive, but options such as phone rental mean that acquiring one (and being the envy of the office!) is simpler than ever.
3. OnePlus 7T

You may have heard the rave reviews about this modestly priced Android phone with superior capabilities you have to experience to believe, and this is what has led to it topping many year-end charts for smartphones. It is phones like the OnePlus that make you wonder what you're spending all that money on when you're shopping for a high-end phone when this does everything - and then some.
The most impressive feature is its 90Hz screen for optimal performance all day round. It launches with Android 10 out of the box, and it is smaller than its competitors, which is an attractive feature for many people who hate carrying around a bulky phone. For the most part, you'll get everything you need from this well-priced phone. However, it does lag a bit behind in terms of battery life and lacks wireless charging, which might be a sticking point for those of you who always need to be connected.
4. Google Pixel 4

Google is finally showing signs of being able to tough it out with the best in the industry with the release of their Pixel range of phones, that are increasingly matching the performance and features you would expect from brands such as Apple and Samsung.
The Pixel 4 utilises Android 10 directly from Google, which makes a big difference. You should find performance and ease of use similar to that of an iPhone - but what stands out, even more, is the fact that it's probably the best camera phone around, perfect for business calls. You'll also have access to all the apps and the latest security updates you'll need.
However, the battery life still lags a bit behind Google's main competitors. Still, it doesn't take anything away from another impressive business phone that will be making waves across many industries.
5. Honourable mention: Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Huawei's emergence in the smartphone market has been nothing short of astounding, and they continue to deliver the goods with every passing year. This smartphone is top-of-the-line, packed with features such an in-display fingerprint scanning and reverse wireless charging that is not seen in the market today.
It also has a massive display and battery life that lasts more than one full day. The only reason why it's receiving an honourable mention is the uncertainty surrounding Huawei's future with Google's apps, which may render the Mate 20 Pro obsolete soon if it stops receiving updates.
