Five or six years ago, the battle for supremacy when it came to business mobile phones was often a one-sided contest. Blackberry was far and away the favoured option for most businesses and the company was experiencing their heyday in the market.

Of course, much has changed since those days and Blackberry no longer has the same level of popularity as yesteryear. As such, this has allowed other companies to sweep in and compete for top spot, with brands including Apple, Samsung, Nokia and HTC all taking a chunk of the market.

For businesses, this is great stuff. It means there are plenty of potential handsets to consider for your company and you can make a choice based on your needs and wants. So, what are the best smartphones to pick from for your own business? We take a look at the options.

Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung has become one of the most popular mobile phone brands worldwide and it’s easy to see why when considering the quality and fantastic specs available on their handsets.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is even better than the previous S5 and potentially the speediest handset out there. There are a loads of great reasons to choose this smartphone too, such as a fantastic design and stunning display.

But what makes it the perfect business mobile phone? Well, with any business accessory you’ll likely want to increase productivity. This is what the Samsung Galaxy S6 delivers.

Additions such as the split-screen multitasking ability and S Finder (helps you find folders and files quickly), ensure this handset is a superb business phone. Then of course there’s the fingerprint scanner to give you an extra layer of protection, whilst a whole host of apps can be downloaded for both business and pleasure purposes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

It’s no surprise to find another of Samsung’s incarnations making the top 5 list and this time we turn to the ever-impressive Galaxy Note 5.

This is another smartphone great for business use and comes with a large screen of 5.7-inches to navigate around your files and folders.

There’s the addition of a stylus too, which makes it a little easier to work from your phone.

For instance, you may want to annotate documents and make amendments to your files. As with the Galaxy S6, fingerprint scanning is also supported, whilst a lengthy battery life is welcome in the fast paced world of business.

Google Nexus 6P

The Android world is gaining popularity and if there’s one sector that’ll likely take a bite into Apple’s worldwide dominance, it’s going to be from the Android. And the best of the bunch when it comes to Android, is the Google Nexus 6P.

With a 5.7-inch screen and plenty of amazing features perfect for business use, you’ll be excused for wondering why the Nexus isn’t even more popular.

So, what are some of the major features included? Among the additions to the Google Nexus is a fingerprint scanner, voice commands and access to the latest Android tech as it hits the market.

Plus, as a cheaper option to your other traditional phablets, this is another brilliant reason to consider the Android.

iPhone 6S Plus

Apple is continually working on new handsets to better previous editions and the iPhone 6S Plus is the finest smartphone from the company to date.

Of course, fans of the iPhone will know what to expect from this handset and usability is one of the key benefits. The larger screen gives you ample space to work from, whilst the 6S Plus delivers incredible performance.

Some of the other attributes to this iPhone is a long battery life and the latest 3D Touch feature. With fingerprint scanning technology too, you’ll have peace of mind in the security of your phone as well.

Apple is undoubtedly the world’s biggest tech company and with the iPhone you’ll have access to thousands of handy apps, all at your fingertips.

Huawei Ascend Mate 2

Have you ever heard of the Huawei Ascend Mate 2? Probably not. It doesn’t have the catchiest of names and has somewhat been swallowed by the world’s major companies. However, if you’re looking for a different handset to the norm, but terrific for business use, this is one to consider.

The Huawei Ascend delivers a fantastic battery life and the 6.1-inch screen betters the more popular smartphones to grace the market.

This of course gives you loads of space to utilise and as one of the cheapest options on the market, is certainly one to bear in mind.
