To determine which smartphone is right for you, you’ll first need to analyse how you plan to use it. If you spend more time on calls than surfing the web, you won’t need to invest in a large display. What's important to you may be a nice surface feel and good protection against dust and moisture. Business users in general appreciate a durable finish as their phones are in constant use.
