There are only two smartphones available to consumers and enterprise customers that the majority of people care about: Apple's iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S4. Although other firms, such as BlackBerry, HTC and LG, are competing in the mobile space with their own devices, it's only Apple and Samsung smartphones that the average corporate employee is currently interested in. Both firms have done what some thought was impossible; they’ve cornered the smartphone market. Realizing that, CIOs have some choices they to make. With the BYOD trend strongly establishing itself, CIOs could allow any and all devices into the office and be done with it. On the other hand, they could acknowledge that one device is superior to all others and recommend that employees use that device in the office. The idea is to limit the impact that other devices would have on the corporate network. But the question is which device is the right option for the enterprise? Wait no more: It's the iPhone 5 that delivers everything the enterprise wants. Samsung's Galaxy S4 is a fine device for consumers, but as the following slides will illustrate, when it comes to the corporate world, the iPhone 5 is the best smartphone.
More Apps, Anyone? The platform that has the best and most applications wins out. Once again, Apple takes the lead as its App Store has 900,000 applications, including a wealth of business programs. It's far superior to the Google Play marketplace and Samsung Apps.
