19th July 2021

Over recent years smartphones have evolved from being just a regular handheld device for texting and calling, to a versatile tool for productivity on the go.

In this blog post, we are going to discuss the future of smartphones and how they can be a great tool for business owners.

Smartphones – Then and Now!

Smartphones have evolved over the years from basic SMS and the phone call tool to button devices with access to the internet and social media. Not to mention full-screen devices packed with loads of features, storage, and better processors for seamless and fluid performance.

With different features integrated into every new flagship, smartphones are a must-have handy tool that brings about ease and helps creatives and business owners manage their activities right from their device, boosting productivity.

In the next section, we’ll dive deeper and go over some high-end smartphones and their amazing features and benefits for business customers.

Features and benefits of the iPhone 12 for business users

Apple is one of the most popular tech brands in the world, and with the company’s track record we expect to see incredible features in each of their new launches. The iPhone 12 series has a lot of integrated elements that are great for business customers and professionals. Some of the more notable features are:

5G Connectivity

With the 5G enabled iPhone 12 smartphone, professionals and business customers can now easily connect and communicate with their clients – even those in rural areas – thanks to high-speed connectivity. They can send and receive information faster than ever before, access the internet with ease, and upload/send files with speed.

Larger Display and Refresh Rate

One of the biggest problems of working with a smartphone is the small display size, the clarity of the screen, and the legibility of files and icons. With the iPhone 12, you can get a large 6.1-inch smartphone with an 86.0% screen-to-body ratio and a resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels. This provides business users with enough space to work, with document text and icons much more legible. Also, with a 60Hz refresh contents and updates on the screen are displayed promptly.

Better Battery and Processor

One of the important features every business user needs in a smartphone is long battery life. A good processor is also essential for business use. The iPhone 12 includes Apple’s A14 Bionic processor which improves the speed of phone operation and can efficiently handle multitasking, coupled with a strong 2815 mAh battery that can carry you the whole day on a full charge.

High-Quality Camera

iPhones are popular for their great cameras and the iPhone 12 has a high-quality dual 12MP lens that allows users to take high-quality photos and videos. For a business user, the iPhone 12 camera comes in handy for taking better quality product pictures and getting clear video call sessions with clients and employees.

Other great apps features like high-grade security (keep your data safe) document viewers/makers, event organizers, task managers, and more are all included in the iPhone 12.
