We live in a world where it’s difficult to exist or succeed if you don’t have a smartphone - that’s the reality. This is most definitely the case for businesses; where communication needs to be fast and simple, smartphones are ideal for reliability, organisation and to access everything a business needs on the go.

However, as a business owner or an employee, it can be difficult to know which smart handset is the best choice for a business phone. Luckily, there are a few pointers we can give you here at Wave Case to help you navigate your options.

Things to consider before choosing a business phone

Before you make any type of decision you need to weigh up what’s important to you and your specific role when it comes to choosing a phone. This can vary from industry to industry and there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to choosing a business handset. 

The main things businesses need to consider before choosing a phone model include:

Cost of phone

Budget is a huge deciding factor for anyone when it comes to what phone to choose, especially businesses. Depending on the size of a business or how many employees need a handset, this can greatly impact budgets and costs. 

For a smartphone, it’s not always the most cost-effective to choose the cheapest. It’s better to choose the phone that will last the longest in your industry, this means less money will be spent on replacing or upgrading handsets.

What your business uses phones for

Phones are no longer used simply for phone calls - well mostly not, anyway! Smaller businesses may rely on their phone for social media usage, photography or apps while bigger businesses may depend on them for international video calls or travel uses. 

It’s important to consider what the main specs you need are and find the right phone to tick all the boxes to avoid having to buy other devices or wasting money along the line.

Privacy and security

Smartphones differ in privacy and security options from passcodes to passwords, encryption to biometric authentication. It's important to keep sensitive data well protected, especially in business, and the choice of smartphone made will impact how this data is treated while out on differing networks and different wifi connections.


Finally, like all products businesses invest in it’s important to look at how they impact the sustainability strategy. Opting for phones which have longevity, perhaps opting for refurbished options or with more sustainable batteries, will all impact the business's carbon footprint in the long term.

Best Apple Phone for Business

Apple smartphones are great options for business, which is why they’re already so popular. They have privacy and security features built in and are easily compatible with other Apple devices to make for seamless business use.

The latest iPhone 15 range (Pro, Pro Max) is the best for business use when it comes to Apple phones. Made with aerospace-grade aluminium and ceramic shield as well as water resistant, the handset is designed for ultra durability ideal for businesses across a range of industries. The phone also has a 48mp main camera, ideal for doing all aspects of business on one phone from social media photography or video calls. 

The Apple iPhone 15 is also proud to be made out of 75% recycled materials, meaning it ticks the sustainability box, too.

Best Google Phone for Business

The Google Pixel 7 range (7a and Pro) is a great option when it comes to a business phone. For easy integration with Google apps like Gmail, G-suite or Google Maps, these phones make moving from phone handset to Chromebook super easy. And, with an enterprise-grade Titan security chip and biometric security, private data can be kept secure even on the go.

Renowned for its long-lasting battery along with a 50+MP camera the Google Pixel 7 has great features for business people. What’s more, Google Pixel phones have access to Live Translate which allows live phone calls to be translated across 48 different languages - ideal for international businesses.

Best Samsung Phones for Business

While most Samsung phones are great for business users, the Samsung Galaxy S23 is one of the best options. The handset offers defence-grade security built in and Microsoft and Google integration that allows users to move between calls, video calls and Microsoft applications or G-suite with ease - key for businesses who already use these applications on desktops.

Another phone with a high-resolution camera for crisp content creation with built-in Auto Focus Video Stabilisation being a key feature for businesses relying on their phones for video recording. Along with a long battery life, this is a key contender for your business phone choice.
