Best Phone For Business

The BlackBerry DTEK60 is the best phone you can buy to use with your business.

Best overall

The BlackBerry DTEK60

See at BlackBerry

The BlackBerry DTEK60 is the best phone you can use to manage your business.

Android software built by BlackBerry carries years of knowledge and experience about the things you're looking for when it comes to the tools you need every day. Business users have specific needs above and beyond what most users have, and the DTEK60 brings things like BlackBerry Hub and the full suite of tools that are an integral part of many road warriors and executives.

The DTEK60 is also secure. Building atop Google's security measures, BlackBerry deems the DTEK line the most secure Android phones available. Extra hardening and monitoring app installs keep you or your employees from getting any random malware, and of course, Google for Business and BlackBerry's own management tools extend administration even further.

And it does all this while being responsive and user-friendly. You won't have to settle for sub-par performance to have the things that help you make money.

Bottom line: Everything a business person needs with no compromises.

One more thing: The BlackBerry Hub integration will help keep you in touch and organized.

Why the DTEK60 is the best

A phone you want to use can also keep your data safe — both personal and business data.

The phone you carry to serve your customers and keep things running smoothly at work needs to be able to do them quickly and keep all that data safe. the DTEK60 is our top pick when it comes to these specifics.

BlackBerry has built a reputation on serving business owners with highly capable and very secure phones. That legacy lives on with their Android offerings. BlackBerry's additions like the Hub and contact manager are proven to be effective ways to manage busy business accounts, and extras from Google for Business and BlackBerry can make management a breeze.

And the DTEK60 is a phone that does all this with no compromises when it comes to performance. The high-power Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4GB of memory are the same components the other Android powerhouse phones use, and it shows. Whether you're managing email, sorting through a spreadsheet at the airport or watching a video in your downtime, the DTEK60 can handle it all.

Best for updates

Google Pixel

The Google Pixel is the most secure Android phone you can buy, and one of the most secure phones of any available today.

Without disabling any security protections, the Pixel and Pixel XL are protected against known public security exploits and remote installations are monitored by Google's scanning software which blocks potential malicious content. While security and privacy are two very different things, when you decide you want private things to stay private you need to make sure your phone is secure to keep them that way. Security is paramount when it comes to using a phone with all your important business contacts and details.

One of the things that make the Pixel and Pixel XL the best is that they use the latest — and most secure — version of Android. It's also updated monthly with fixes for security exploits (both known and unknown) directly from Google. For those who can't wait for the update to reach them, the update files are hosted by Google for download and installation. More importantly, the changes and code behind these fixes are available for peer review so they can be made more robust.

Bottom line: The Google Pixel will always have the latest and most secure version of Android for the duration of its lifetime.

One more thing: Verizon carries the Pixel and your account rep can take care of any order.

BlackBerry DTEK50

BlackBerry says the DTEK50 is the world's most secure Android phone.

Using the same methods as the more expensive DTEK60 to keep Android up to date and hardened to BlackBerry's specifications, the out-of-the-box experience on the DTEK50 lets BlackBerry claim the most secure title with both models.

The experience of using the DTEK50 just isn't as pleasant as the other phones on our list. Clearly designed as an entry-level phone for people who need connectivity and security, the phone is well worth the asking price. But it's just not a smooth as any of the other phones here.

That shouldn't tarnish the DTEK50's reputation, though. If you're looking for something safe and affordable with access to well over a million apps — and a tool to monitor them all — the DTEK50 may be just what you're looking for.

Bottom line: BlackBerry knows that security doesn't only apply to the flagship phones and the DTEK50 is a welcome addition for business persons and IT managers.

One more thing: Scott Wenger, VP of design and devices for BlackBerry says DTEK stands for "Detection."

Conclusion

Media outlets like to give Android a bad reputation when it comes to security, and it's difficult to blame them. Old, outdated software from manufacturers with no real concern for your security or privacy are the norm when it comes to phones running Android. The phone you use to run your business can't be this way.

The DTEK60 has the BlackBerry legacy of security and professional tools behind it, and the move to Android also makes even more services available. When it comes to the day-to-day needs of running a business or having your staff using the best tools possible in a safe and secure way, you can't beat the BlackBerry DTEK60

Latest Nougat beta for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge renames TouchWiz to Samsung Experience

47

Third Nougat beta release brings new features, slew of bug fixes.

If you're enrolled in the Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, it's time to check your phone for an update. Samsung is rolling out the third Nougat beta version, adding Samsung Pass, the Samsung Note app, an auto brightness button in the Quick Panel, and moving the "Close All" button to the bottom of the recents panel.

Interestingly, the software info section lists the UI as Samsung Experience version 8, so it looks like Samsung is transitioning away from the TouchWiz name for its user interface. We haven't necessarily seen the TouchWiz branding highlighted in recent times, and with Nougat, the company is moving away from blue-green accents to a more refined layout that features a lot of white elements interspersed with light-blue accent colors.

Best Dual-SIM Android Phone

OnePlus 3 S7 edge

Having a dual-SIM phone is convenient if you travel a lot, as it gives you the flexibility of using a local SIM while still receiving texts and calls from your primary number. Right now, the best option is the Galaxy S7 edge.

Best overall

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

The Galaxy S7 edge is one of the most feature-rich phones available today. You get a gorgeous 5.5-inch dual curved Super AMOLED display, Samsung's own Exynos 8890 SoC, microSD slot, a 12MP camera that can hold its own, 5MP front camera, and a 3600mAh battery with wireless charging. There's also IP68 water resistance, which makes the phone immune to the occasional splash of water or a trip to the pool.

The carrier variants of the Galaxy S7 edge offer a single SIM card slot, but you can pick up an unlocked international model with dual-SIM connectivity (SM-G935FD). The unlocked models are costlier than carrier editions, but on the bright side, you don't have to deal with any bloatware.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a high-end phone with two SIM card slots, look no further than the Galaxy S7 edge.

One more thing: Your best bet for an unlocked Galaxy S7 edge with dual-SIM connectivity is the SM-G935FD. The phone is compatible with LTE bands in the U.S., UK, India, and Canada.

Galaxy S8 reportedly sticking to QHD display, may not feature home button or 3.5mm jack

138

Samsung is making radical changes to the Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S8 was rumored to offer a 4K display, but it looks like that won't be the case. According to SamMobile, Samsung will continue to offer a QHD Super AMOLED panel, albeit with a new substrate. That isn't all, as the publication notes that Samsung is all set to get rid of the 3.5mm port. The phone will offer USB-C, so if you're interested in wired audio, you'll have to pick up USB-C headphones.

Android is not iOS, December 2016 edition

73

Marshmallow rises while KitKat slowly melts.

December's Android distribution numbers are out, and they're boring. Android is still not iOS, and things don't change in large increments, so haters will still hate and defenders will still hate.

Impressively, Android 6.0 Marshmallow now holds the single version crown with 26.3% share. That takes over Android 4.4 KitKat, the previous leader, which dropped 1.2% to 24% even. Lollipop cumulatively holds the lead with 34%, divided between versions 5.0 and 5.1.

  • Voicemail icon notification was not displaying when a new voicemail message was received.
  • Device stopped playing voicemail messages over Bluetooth® after the screen timed out.

Report claims Galaxy Note 7 batteries exploded because they were too big

112
Galaxy Note 7

Instrumental report says there wasn't sufficient clearance between the battery and its enclosure, and that 'aggressive design' led to the battery being squeezed.

Ever since the late Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was withdrawn from sale, there has been no shortage of theories — both legitimate and dubious — about exactly what caused the phone's battery to go boom. Samsung originally blamed a battery cell issue in cells from one supplier, however the second recall and subsequent cancellation of the phone would seem to discount that.

Now a report from engineering firm Instrumental claims to have solved the mystery.

Moto Z on Nougat: Life by a thousand improvements

51

Subtly better in so many different ways.

Depending on who you ask, modular phones are either the future or a hilariously failed experiment that encapsulates how many people feel about 2016 in general. Few people disagree, however, that of the modular phones we saw this year the Moto Z and Z Force were the best. Snapping on a bigger battery or a projector may not have been worth losing the headphone jack for some, and the Moto camera still lags a little behind the top phones of this year, but there's still a lot to like here.

Despite some early concerns about security and software updates, the Droid Editions of Moto Z and Z Force have received the updated to Android 7.0 with the November 1 security update before most of the competition. As we've learned before, especially with Moto phones, being the first to an update does not always mean a great experience. Here's what we've found after nearly two weeks with this big update.

Striking similarity

As is almost always the case with Moto phones, there's no big visual changes in Android 7.0 on the Z. Moto software remains very Google-esque, and so what you get with Android 7.0 is quite similar to what you get with Google's Pixel. Since Google is keeping some of Pixel's features to itself right now, there's no Assistant in the home button. Instead you get Screen Search, the new name for Google Now and Now on Tap. Which is cool, Assistant isn't fully baked yet, anyway.

Nougat introduces a lot of small changes that you're unlikely to notice right away unless you've already used a Google Pixel. Multi-window apps, double-tapping the app switch button to jump to the previous app, and in-line notification replies make a huge difference once you integrate them into your day-to-day usage. Nothing about these features stands out, and there's no tutorial to introduce them, but figuring out how to use them based on your needs is a great experience.

Dropping the information density slider from Default to Small is a revelation on this phone, allowing for more content across the entire OS.

Where you will see the most visual changes is in the settings. Here you get Google's new Suggestions system, which is unfortunately entirely focused on Google's services. You're prompted to enable "OK Google" for system-wide actions but no such suggestion exists for Moto Voice. Notification settings will appear in your suggestions, but so far none of those suggestions have been for tweaks to Moto Display. These aren't huge deals, especially with Moto so prominently displayed both in the app drawer and the Settings page itself, but it's clear Motorola either wasn't able to or chose not to highlight Moto-specific features in settings suggestions.

If you aren't a fan of the massive icons Moto uses in its app drawer, you're going to love the 7.0 Display Size feature. Dropping that slider from Default to Small is a revelation on this phone, allowing for better information density and smaller everything across the entire OS. It's a small feature, but so much more convenient than installing a third-party app to only tweak part of your interface to your needs.

Everything Moto on this phone still works the same as it did before, which is to be expected. Moto apps are updated through the Play Store, so when new features are available or settings are tweaked there doesn't need to be a whole system update. We've already seen several small tweaks to Moto Camera and individual Moto Mods over the last couple of months, so the system update focuses on improving the system itself.

Unfortunately, what didn't get fixed was the lower-than-usual notification tone bug that was introduced in a fairly recent security update. Notifications a still a little quieter than they should be as a result, and it's unclear if or when this will be addressed.

None of this sounds particularly interesting, and that's by design. The Moto UI was built to remain familiar to users through updates, and now shock anyone with new interfaces or multiple large changes to features. The really exciting stuff for Moto Z and Z Force users getting their update to Nougat is underneath, more so than just about any other phone.

Performance and Polish

The Moto Z never felt stuttery or sluggish to me, even after months of use, but on Nougat the phone absolutely screams. It's as though every ounce of performance has been squeezed out of the Snapdragon 820 underneath this glass. Some of that is Nougat optimizations and what happens when you fully wipe a phone before installing a major system update, but everything from checking notifications to launching apps is not only faster but noticeably smoother. Nougat's number one feature is polish, and that is plainly evident on the Moto Z. Folders don't open with the same smooth instant snap you see on the Pixel, and the background is black instead of white, but it's still a slick sensation to see your phone perform better and not just differently.

In many ways, Moto Z is the cure for folks who are frequently anxious about installing updates.

The solid integration is to be expected, and the performance boost is nice, but the added battery life is a real treat. A typical day with the Moto Z would leave me at 15% remaining at around the 14-hour mark, which meant it struggled to get me through a whole day. I regularly found myself either charging for a few minutes somewhere or leaving the house with one of those great battery Mods to make sure I wasn't running out of power. Nougat's Doze on the Go adds a little more than an hour to that battery life with my usage, which meant the phone would regularly get me through a day with 5-6% remaining. That's cutting it a little close, but also means with a battery Mod attached I can just about get through a weekend without needing to charge.

Lenovo made the Moto Z and Z Force the first non-Pixel phones that are Daydream-certified, which means you can now use a Daydream View headset and enjoy higher quality VR than you'd normally get with Google Cardboard. Daydream View was built to handle a Z Force with a battery Mod onboard, which means the Moto Z phones can get you through a full binge-watch session in VR. This is great news for people who travel, or for folks who want to Daydream for a while without needing to recharge shortly after. Moto Z handles Daydream exactly the same as the Pixel in most situations, save for needing to slide the phone down a little so the NFC reader in the camera bump can grab the launch tag for VR.

Still Moto at heart

Nougat makes the Moto Z feel like a new phone without radically changing anything. What you get after this update is the best experience this hardware has to offer thanks to optimization, and not a new coat of paint. That doesn't happen too often, especially with Android phones. In many ways, the Moto Z is the cure for folks who are frequently anxious about installing updates that change things for the sake of change. That may seem boring to folks who love the newest, shiniest thing, but for a lot of users stability is a feature and that's what you get with this phone.

At the same time, this is still very much the Moto Z that slid out of the box five months ago. The camera is still not the best, the fingerprint sensor is middle-of-the-road, and these phones are still fairly pricey. The update to Nougat, the ability to use Daydream, and news that new Mods are on the way with new features are all fantastic, but Lenovo still has to convince people that modular phones are the future and continue to deliver on that vision.
