5 of the Best Smartphones for Remote Work


These days, working from home or on-the-go requires reliable technology at all times. This includes laptops, monitors, televisions, and arguably the most important device, your smartphone. 

Smartphones are an easy pathway to convenient communication, picture taking, and data entry, so a good smartphone is necessary to do efficient work and stay engaged. 

From IOS to Android devices, here are some well-grounded smartphones that will benefit you and your remote workload:

1. iPhone Xs (Apple)

According to Statista.com, the percentage of iPhone users has gone up by over 15% from 2012 to 2019. Not to mention, those numbers are close to the amount of google brand phone owners, which makes it a pretty common and useful choice among those in the workforce. 

Particularly, the iPhone Xs is no exception as it’s a prime option for a remote work smartphone with its screen layout going from top to bottom, an improved camera with 4K and 1080p quality (perfect for Zoom meetings), and a lower price than some of the newer phones Apple is offering. Combine all of this with an improved touch screen and you’ve got yourself a really reliable smartphone to use when at home that will have no trouble keeping you connected. 

Other Benefits:

  • 5.8-inch OLED screen (iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch screen)
  • A12 Bionic chip for fast multi-tasking
  • Water-resistant in a meter deep up to 30 minutes
  • 256 GB of storage for plenty of documents and files

2. Galaxy Z Flip (Samsung)

Switching gears over to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip, this smartphone has a very unique design with modern-day technology. 

As said in the name, it’s a flip phone! This allows the Galaxy Z Flip to be compact while still having a reliable camera, specs, and size to aid in remote work. On top of being reliable, it’s also durable since (when flipped) the outer shell will protect the screen from cracks in the event of an accidental drop. Also, if you’re on a video call, the flip ability creates a stand to get a perfect angle of yourself—the top screen shows your face and the bottom gives you full control over other features. 

Altogether, it’s a very interesting take on a smartphone that is not only compact but also packs a punch in communication and flexibility/convenience.

Other Benefits:

  • Multi-tasking abilities
  • 6.7-inch screen top to bottom
  • Even when folded, you can respond to notifications
  • All-day battery life

3. Google Pixel 3 (Google)

Google phones relatively bring the same items to the table. However, the Google Pixel 3 is a happy medium between the newest smartphones offered by Google. 

For remote work, the Pixel 3 will serve you just fine. Along with its 128 Gigabytes storage capacity, you’ll also have unlimited space for pictures and videos alike with the help of Google Photos. Also, Google phones are pre-loaded with vital software that tons of companies and clients use to work remotely. 

For example, you can easily access Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Spreadsheets, and other important apps to help drive your success. 

Other Benefits:

  • 5.5-inch display (Google Pixel 3 XL – 6-inch display)
  • All-day battery life
  • Water-resistant
  • Active Edge with Google Voice Command

4. BlackBerry Key2

Every one of these smartphones has a keyboard, but Blackberry has always been known for having a physical one attached to it. 

With the BlackBerry Key2, it’s no different. This is great if you actually do your work on a phone since, with a physical keyboard, you can ensure less annoying mistakes you would tend to have with a touchscreen keyboard. Also, the keyboard has improved with this model so much that you can eliminate swiping and exiting to the home screen all together with new keyboard shortcuts you can use to navigate through apps and files. 

Working with this phone is super easy, too, since its thinner and lighter design makes it comfortable to hold for long periods of time. Its sleek, classic design, coupled with great durability for accidental drops—you’ve got yourself a perfect phone to work from on-the-go. 

Other Benefits:

  • 2-day battery life on a single charge 
  • Great privacy from Blackberry’s OS
  • 4.5-inch display
  • Amazing accessories to enhance your workflow
