The Best Mobiles for Business

As 2020 comes to an end, tech giants Apple, Samsung and Nokia have released a number of new devices best for business, each with some really surprising and interesting features to benefit your workforce.

So if you’re due an upgrade or nearing the end of your contract, our mobile expert Darren Tiday has assembled his all-star lineup of the best mobile devices for business users available this Christmas.

Apple iPhone 12 Mini

With new device announcements and events usually held towards the end of the year, Christmas is always a huge time for Apple, and this year is no different. The latest iteration of their renowned iPhone handset comes in 4 separate varieties, each offering a distinct experience. 

My pick of this new range of iPhones is the impressive iPhone 12 Mini. Measuring just 131.5 x 64.2mm, this small but mighty handset is powered by the same A14 Bionic chipset found in comparable iPhone 12, 12 Pro and Max devices. With a 5.4″ super retina screen, iOS 14 and 5G compatibility out of the box, size is no obstacle for this Apple powerhouse.

The iPhone 12 Mini’s impressive specifications include: 

  • 5.4″ Super Retina XDR OLED screen
  • Dual Rear and Front Cameras
  • 2227mAh battery 
  • Scratch-resistant ceramic glass display
  • Apple A14 bionic chipset 
  • Hexa-core processor 
  • 64GB, 128GB or 256GB storage options
  • iOS 14 out of the box
  • 5G Compatibility

Priced around £650, the iPhone 12 mini is an excellent choice for business users who prefer a more compact smartphone, but still need the processing power to easily run demanding applications, multitask on the go and connect to lightning fast 5G networks.

S20 FE 5G

Samsung have always had multiple tiers of devices, offering a range of features and hardware at a variety of price points. The S20 FE 5G brings a welcome change to this formula in 2020, offering the full S20 experience with comparible internal hardware and a bigger screen – at the value of a lite device!

Packed with S20 pro-grade features and hardware, the S20 FE5G also comes with Samsung Knox, a defence-grade security platform built from the chip up, using fingerprint scanning and secure folder applications to protect users and their vital business data, making it an ideal choice for businesses who need to remain GDPR compliant.

This handset’s impressive specifications include: 

  • 6.5’ FHD+ display
  • Rear Tri-Camera setup
  • 4500mAh battery
  • Exynos 990 chipset
  • Octa-Core processor
  • 128GB expandable internal storage 
  • Android 10 out of the box
  • 5G Compatibility

Available from around £620, the S20 FE 5G is the perfect fit for businesses looking to upgrade their Android mobile device fleet. In fact, in addition to its business security features, Samsung Knox also allows remote configuration and setup of phones in bulk*, making it incredibly simple to setup and roll out a whole fleet of new phones to your staff.

*App configuration enabled via an MDM solution such as MaaS360

Nokia 8.3 5G

Last on the list, (but certainly not least), comes Nokia’s latest flagship device – The Nokia 8.3 5G. Released in September, this handset was due to appear on the big screen as part of the latest James Bond feature film.

Whilst we’ll have to wait a while to see it in cinematic action, the 8.3 5G certainly lives up to its technological credentials, and is a top-tier device worthy of Bond himself!

The Nokia 8.3 is powered by Android 10 out of the box, and runs Android One, providing a clean and responsive android experience. Coupled with a huge 6.81” IPS display, 64MP camera and Snapdragon 765 chipset and 5G compatibility, the 8.3 comfortably matches other top-performing handsets currently on the market.

This handset’s impressive specifications include: 

  • 6.81″ IPS LCD display
  • Rear Quad-Camera setup
  • 4500mAh battery
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset
  • Octa-Core processor
  • 64GB or 128GB expandable internal storage 
  • Android 10 out of the box
  • 6GB of RAM 

Priced from £455, the Nokia 8.3 5G is an impressively specced Android device, offering features and performance well above its budget price tag.

Ranked #1 for software updates and security1, Nokia devices automatically gain 2 years of software upgrades and 3 years of monthly security updates, making the 8.3 an ideal choice for businesses committing to a 24 or 36-month contract term.
