Are you making your life harder? Choose the right phone

April 22, 2021

While there are plenty comparison websites you can visit to scrutinise over every detail of all phones on the market, you still may find it hard to choose. Hours can be spent and left leaving your question still un-answered. Which phone is best for me? Well, here is a helping hand.
On the market right now, some of the top options:

- Samsung Galaxy note 20 ultra
- iPhone 12
- Google pixel
- Samsung Galaxy S20
- And the iPhone SE (2020 model)

The key to what phone works best for you is in the right balance between easy personal use as well as making work activities labour-free. If your phone is to be used for business, everyone should look at these categories.

Device life
You want to be able to charge your handset over-night and take it to work in the morning knowing that it will last the full working day. If you travel for work, you want the reliance that your phone will not give out if you are short a charging point.


We have all done it.  Dropped our phone whilst trying to multi task, smashed the screen or dropped it in the sink or worse down the toilet!!  Many of the new models now are more shock resistant and water resistant and in some cases water proof.  A must for those  busy work/holiday trips away.

Size matters

While some people prefer a smaller handset for leisure use of a mobile phones, using these for work can be tricky. The bigger the screen, the better. On top of putting less strain on your eyes, carrying out work on your phone is just easier with a bigger screen. Plain and simple, no frustration with the little accuracy you have with your fingers on a smaller phone.

Now, a comparison between two of the market leading handsets:

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Battery life: 4,500 mAh
OS: Android 10
Dimensions: 164.8 x 77.2 x 8.1mm
Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
Cameras: Front = 10MP / Rear  = 108 + 12 + 12
Water resistant – up to 1.5mtrs for 30 mins

Pros: New S pen features allow for more precise note taking and drawing.
Cons: Is only water resistant up to 1.5mtrs

iPhone 12

Battery life: 2,815 mAh
OS: iOS 14
Dimensions: 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4mm
Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
Cameras: Front = 12MP Rear  = 12 + 12
Splash, Water & Dust resistant – 6mtrs for 30 mins

Cons: Battery life and camera is not as good as Samsung.

We are all guilty for staying with what we know. Apple have been leaders in the market for a long time and it’s understandable why. Everyone knows how to use them! The Samsung note 20 ultra is the winner in most categories that would be seen as essential for business use. Does this mean you should get this over the iPhone 12 though?
