Looking for a phone that can cut it in a professional environment? Take a look at our picks.


Once dominated by Blackberry, the ‘business’ smartphone category has seen a decline in recent years. Heaps of storage space and amazing processing power across the spectrum have enabled smartphones to handle basic professional tasks with absolute ease. But there are certain ‘business’ attributes that are exclusive to only a handful of smartphones. Be it standalone performance or seamless integration with other devices, a ‘business’ smartphone should be able to do it all. So let’s take a look at the best business smartphones for power users in 2023.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
Price: Rs 1,55,000
Key Specs
Display 7.6-inch Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X, 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X (Cover Display)
Chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
Storage 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
Battery 5,000 mAh
The mighty foldable from Samsung is the first smartphone in a very long time that stands out as a business smartphone geared towards power users. The inner 7.6-inch foldable dynamic AMOLED display has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. The 6.2-inch dynamic AMOLED cover display is perfect for normal usage in a familiar aspect ratio. But the real monster is unleashed upon folding open the smartphone.
The inner display is ideal for multitasking and watching content alike. With the Fold 4, you can leave your laptop at home without worrying about missing any work. You can prop up the smartphone on a desk and take meetings wherever you are. Samsung leads the pack when it comes to getting the most out of a foldable with its highly optimised OS. The powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset delivers a stunning performance on this smartphone. Want more? The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 also comes with a sleek stylus that lets you take notes and edit documents on your device. Check out our review here.
iPhone 14 Pro Max
Price: Rs 1,39,900
Key Specs
Display 6.7-inch LTPO Super Retina XDR OLED
Chipset A16 Bionic
Storage 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
Battery 4,323 mAh
Powered by the new A16 Bionic chipset, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is one of the most powerful phones around. What makes the iPhone appealing as a business smartphone is its state-of-the-art security. Cutting-edge hardware aside, Apple really pulls its weight while determining how third parties interact with its ecosystem. The App Store implements rigorous gatekeeping and constantly takes down apps that don’t meet its security standards. Through a technique called ‘Sandboxing’ Apple ensures that every app runs in its own space without interacting with other applications on your device. If you’re worried about your data being exposed to malicious entities, iPhone is the way to go.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max gets one of the biggest camera upgrades on an iPhone in a long time. The triple camera unit at the back now comprises a 48MP primary shooter, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultrawide lens. The Pro variants (review) of the iPhone also support shooting videos in the ProRes codec. The new iPhone series introduces a couple more changes. The notch on the display has now been replaced by a pill-shaped cutout dubbed the ‘Dynamic Island’. The smartphone also gets satellite connectivity which can be used as an SOS in times of emergency.
Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola
Price: $699
Key Specs
Display 6.6-inch P-OLED
Chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
Storage 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
Battery 5,000 mAh
Made in collaboration with Lenovo, the ThinkPhone offers seamless connectivity between your laptop and your smartphone. The ThinkPhone is designed keeping the ThinkPad in mind. The customisable red side key gives the smartphone its unique identity. The ThinkPhone has an amarid fibre back and an aluminium frame. Being MIL-STD-810H compliant, the phone is incredibly tough. It is also rated IP68 for dust and water resistance. 
Motorola has put a lot of thought into how the smartphone works with a Windows laptop or PC. When connected to a PC the smartphone can share its clipboard, allow files to be transferred via drag and drop, mirror its display, and use its camera as a webcam for the computer. If you spend a lot of time at work on your PC and need a device that seamlessly integrates with it, the ThinkPhone is as good as it gets.
Google Pixel 7 Pro
Price: Rs 81,000
Key Specs
Display 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED
Chipset Tensor G2
Storage 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
Battery 5,000 mAh
Google Pixel 7 Pro (review) gets a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with HDR10+ support and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Powering this smartphone is Google’s in-house Tensor G2 chipset. The unique camera band at the back houses a 50MP primary sensor, a 48MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultrawide shooter. Google’s computational photography makes the Pixel one of the best camera phones around.
But what really stands out about the Pixel is the OS experience. Since the Pixel is a Google smartphone, it is optimised to unlock the full potential of Google’s suite of apps. Pixels are also ahead of the curve when it comes to Android upgrades. Any new feature introduced in Android makes its way into the Pixel before any other smartphone. Android’s ‘Material You’ is also best utilised on the Pixel. If you’re interested in getting the most out of Android, Google Pixel is the way to go.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
Price: Rs 1,25,000
Key Specs
Display 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X
Chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Storage 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
Battery 5,000 mAh
The raw power that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (review) delivers with its performance is hardly matched by any other smartphone. Samsung’s flagship device is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display on this smartphone is considered by many to be the best around. The S23 Ultra comes with an integrated stylus, reminiscent of the Note series of the past. The stylus is a handy tool to take quick notes, edit screenshots, deliver presentations, draw doodles, and much more.
Another great feature of the S23 Ultra that hypes it up as a business phone is Samsung DeX. This feature is only available on the flagship S and Z series. Samsung DeX essentially turns your smartphone into a desktop as soon as it is connected to a TV or a monitor. With a PC-like interface, you can browse through your phone and use it like a computer.
