Mobile Phones for Business
Business Mobile Phones – should i buy the latest?
Significant value can be derived by using mobile phones that are towards end of line. The sacrifice is generally battery capacity, especially on older iPhones. Buying a newer model of mobile phone can offer long term benefits in that they are built to last longer with innovations like gorilla glass and waterproofing. More RAM means the modern business mobile phone should respond quicker and memory storage is much higher. The camera will be capable of higher resolution photography and video.
How much memory storage should i have for a business phone?
This largely depends on what you are using the device for. If your business shoots a lot of video and hi-res photographs like perhaps an estate agent, then 128, 256 and even 512GB might be what you need. If however your business uses the device for communication then 32 – 64GB should be ample.
How big should the screen be?
Big screen size doesn’t have to mean spending more money, in fact the best value mobile phone for business the Samsung Galaxy A21s is a chunky 6.5 inch screen. Compared to the cut price iPhone SE2 which is more standard at 4.7 inch. Big screen sizes are perhaps better for older generation users where eye sight could be an issue. Big screen sizes are also better for avoiding fat finger typo errors in texts and messages.
How much Ram does my business mobile phone need?
This is again dependent on what you are using the phone for. If you are working big files like excel spreadsheets then a bit of extra Ram is beneficial. More Ram should mean faster response times when using your apps. If your business uses mobile phones exclusively for communication then anything above 4GB of Ram is perhaps a wasted resource.
How many megapixels?
All smartphones now are a world away from where they were a few years ago. The latest devices boast 64 MP cameras and perhaps if you use the device for a lot of quality photography and 4k video then camera specifications are important to your business.
How strong is the battery?
There is no doubt that each new generation of mobile device improves on battery capacity. Most smartphones now have 3000 – 5000 mAh battery packs which allows most mobile devices to run 11-13 hours when fully in use. It is worth bearing in mind that a larger screen size requires a greater battery capacity, although it is also worth noting that the biggest drain on mobile phone batteries comes from wireless, GPRS and 4G connections, especially when the signal is less than perfect.
What Are The Financial Benefits of Business Mobile Phones?
If you are a business owner then it makes very good sense for your business to outright purchase or lease mobile phones. In the same way that business plant and machinery depreciates so do mobile phones, business tablets and computers. The depreciation can be offset against corporation tax liability. Any business that is considering bulk purchases of mobile phones for their staff should consider a leasing option as your business can derive tax benefits and spread the cost of purchase over 2 or 3 years. Leasing is a far better solution than purchasing a mobile phone that is bundled with a voice and data package.
