9 enterprise-ready consumer smartphones

Sarah K. White | Oct. 26, 2015
If you need a smartphone for both personal and professional use these nine mobile devices serve double-duty.

Finally, with Samsung SideSync, you can also keep your smartphone synced with your PC, allowing you to receive notifications, answer calls, share files, respond to texts and access a number of features on your phone directly from your computer. You can even screen-share with your PC, so that you can fully access your smartphone display right on your computer. That means, you won't have to break your concentration to respond to a notification on your mobile device.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

If you're looking for a high-end device that offers a unique take on smartphones, check out the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which has a curved glass screen and an oversized display.

The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has all the security features found in the Galaxy S6, but what makes it unique is its curved design. With the edge functionality, you can surreptitiously view notifications without having to unlock your device and blatantly look at the device. This can come in handy if you're in a meeting with a client, and you don't want to appear rude if you need to check a notification. You can just swipe along the side of the phone and notifications will subtly pop up, without distracting anyone or lighting up the entire display.

It is big, with a 5.5-inch display and a resolution of 401ppi, but that's just more real estate to keep up on the latest news, check emails and edit documents on the go. And with 4GB of RAM, you won't have to worry about multitasking or lag while multitasking. The large display also makes the multi-feature more convenient since it lets you minimize windows so they aren't left floating on the home screen while you access other apps or windows.

Alternatively, if you like the idea of the curved display, but not the size, you can opt for the Galaxy S6 Edge, which is the same size as the S6, but also has the curved edges.

Lumia 950

Microsoft announced this month a slew of Windows 10 devices that have impressed an often finicky tech world. And while the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book are making waves in the notebook world, the Lumia 950 Windows 10 phone hopes to offer something new in a sea of Android and iOS devices. The 5.2-inch device features an OLED display with a resolution of 565 ppi and packs a Snapdragon 808 64-bit Hexa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, expandable storage up to 2TB with a microSD card and Qi wireless charging.

With Windows Hello, you'll also get unique security features across all of your Windows 10 devices, as long as the device has a fingerprint scanner or a front-facing camera that supports the technology. With Hello, your device will not only recognize your fingerprint, but also your face and iris. You can ditch the password and still retain the enterprise-grade security you need at work.
