For several years, the smartphone has become the reflex for all online actions for consumers. It allows you to accomplish all the tasks that could be done on a computer. It is modernized, with several new options, and more advanced features. However, not all smartphones are suitable for professional use.

Consumer smartphones are subject to shocks and hacking attempts. They are not suitable for the corporate world. In addition, professionals are increasingly mobile, smartphones must withstand collisions. It is not enough for a company to have a simple internet connection. It is essential to have a large minimum storage space of 32 GB, and a Micro-SD port.

In addition, screen size, brightness and resolution are important conditions. As for the battery, the battery life should not be less than 8 hours, and it must be able to change easily. In addition, the camera is not to be overlooked, for scanning, a QR, a barcode or taking pictures in the professional setting. Finally, the smartphone must be able to insert two SIM cards to link business and personal activities.

Smartphones, allies of everyday life (especially) in confinement

During the lockdown, the smartphone becomes the main ally of professionals. It allows you to remotely manage everything that can be done in the office. Follow your appointments, contact your customers, your employees… The smartphone allows you to keep the links you have with your professional sphere. Like a standard computer, it allows you to access your emails in a few clicks. With him, the professional can reach his clients on the other side of the world.

A powerful camera, with an almost professional shooting quality… A storage capacity close to that of traditional computers… But above all unlimited access to the internet, to carry out actions anywhere.

Most professionals can adapt to remote work thanks to their smartphone. In addition to a computer, depending on the industry, they can perform all tasks. In short, no more limits to creativity, no more obstacles to adaptation. Digitalization is an opportunity that professionals continue to exploit. In this period of confinement, it appears more than ever as the solution. A solution that combines work and respect for barrier gestures.

The criteria to take into account when choosing a professional mobile phone

Choosing a professional smartphone is a choice that needs to be considered. Indeed, depending on the intended use of the activity, the smartphone will have to ensure strategic points so as not to hinder professionals in the proper performance of their work.
The first point to take into account is that of the battery. If for personal use, it is already uncomfortable to have a smartphone with a low autonomy, this is even more disabling for professional use. Indeed, the professional smartphone must allow to be reachable at any time.

Thus, it is necessary to be vigilant about the performance and life of the battery. It is also possible for professionals on the go to acquire an external battery to avoid being out of battery.

Depending on the actions performed on the smartphone, it will also be necessary to ensure its speed. In order to be able to open several applications at the same time and perform quick actions, it is necessary to look at the RAM and the processor.

Finally, if smartphones outperform computers, it is also worth making sure you have sufficient screen size and quality. It will obviously be easier to work and take notes or edit images on a mobile phone with a large screen and good resolution.
