No business can achieve its ultimate goal—to raise business productivity, to facilitate full efficiency of the workplace, and to expand its market reach and therefore its revenues—without the help of technology. The recent innovations especially in consumer technology have streamlined not only the personal lives of individuals but more importantly the business operations.
Technology affects the various aspects of the business, but it exerts the most influence in business communication, which is an integral part in maintaining cohesion within the business organization and good relationship with clients and associates outside. There are various technologies that you can use in order to improve on your business communication system and these are the business telephone, VoIP technology, cloud computing service, third party phone features provided by RingCentral or any other phone service providers, tablets, and Smartphones, just to name a few.
A number of Smartphone models are available for the consideration of businesses. The choice of Smartphone should be in line with the specific needs of the company, the current availability of financial resources, and the future plans for expansion. For small and mid-sized businesses that have limitations with finances, purchasing an affordable Smartphone is a top priority.
If you are looking for Smartphones that will not break your bank, you may want to consider buying old but serviceable models. The big slashes in the prices of these Smartphones are attributable to the fast release of new models, which in turn depreciates the value of older handsets. In this regard, the iPhone 4S is a good option for your business if you’re already eyeing for an old Smartphone model.
In order to measure how the iPhone 4S fares with more recent handsets, it would be better to compare it with one of the best Android Smartphones out in the market today, the Google Nexus 4.
- Arguably one of the most well-built and well-designed Android Smartphones, the Google Nexus 4 feels like something that is well beyond its actual price. It is comfortable to hold, has a glossy finish with tiny silver dot matrix. At 9.1mm and 139mm, the Nexus 4 is thin and light. The iPhone 4S, on the other hand, features an armored glass for its front and back. It is thicker and heavier than the Google Nexus 4 at 9.3mm and 140g, respectively.
- When it comes to display, the Nexus 4 has a larger screen (4.7”) than the iPhone 4 (3.5”). With a pixel density of 316ppi and a screen resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, the Google Nexus 4 has a better screen resolution (640 x 960 pixels) though it has a lower pixel density (326ppi). This makes the iPhone 4S display crisp and vibrant.
- In terms of performance, the Nexus 4 wins flat out with its 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor fitted with 2GB of RAM. The best match of Nexus 4 is not the iPhone 4S but the more recent iPhone5, though the iPhone 4S was one of the fastest Smartphone during its time of release.
- The iPhone 4S trumps the Google Nexus 4 when it comes to storage. The Nexus 4 comes in 8GB and 16GB models without microSD slot, and this memory is not fully available since the OS and pre-loaded apps will use some of it. The iPhone 4S, while also not offering expandable memory capabilities, comes with a standard 16GB onboard storage.
