With tactical smartphones, soldiers have secure, fast, reliable communications, plus situational awareness and close air support.
Getting business done can be challenging, but getting the most out of your work phone shouldn’t be. Whether it’s your battery that’s been powering down too quickly, a lack of screen real estate to multitask effectively, or frustrations with PINs and passwords, if your work experience isn’t seamless on your smartphone, it’s time to consider an upgrade.
Not only do the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ offer the reliability and security that enterprises demand, they also incorporate innovative productivity features that make multi-tasking and working on the go easier, redefining what you can do with your phone. Still undecided? Here are nine reasons to make the Galaxy S9 your next work smartphone:
1. Infinity Display
Not only will you be able to see more, you’ll be able to do more. Equipped with curved Super AMOLED displays, the Galaxy S9’s screen comes in at 5.8 inches diagonally, while the S9+ is 6.2 inches. With these immersive, edge-to-edge screens, you get the maximum viewable display but the phones are still comfortable to hold and use with one hand.
2. App Pair
Work is busy and often you need to do two things at once, like look at your calendar invite for a number so you can dial into the conference call. Instead of having to toggle back-and-forth between the apps, App Pair lets you set two apps to launch at once in a multi-window view, all with a single touch.
3. Knox Security
When it comes to security, not all mobile devices are created equal. With the Samsung Knox platform, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ offer defense-grade protection for an open world. Security is built in at the time of manufacture through a trusted execution environment where encrypted keys are securely stored. This “root of trust” is the secure foundation upon which the operating system and application layers run. Knox also integrates closely with all the major enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions.
4. Advanced Biometrics
Keeping work data on mobile devices secure is critical — but it should also be hassle-free for the user. Biometric authentication is a smart way to keep your phone safe without relying on complex passwords. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ feature iris scanning, which provides high levels of protection to meet the requirements of even the most security-conscious organizations. For added convenience in varied lighting conditions, Samsung is also introducing a new feature called Intelligent Scan. With this feature activated, the device will select either facial recognition or iris scanning depending on environmental conditions. This means you can “unlock with a look,” whether in bright sunlight or low light.
5. Secure Folder
Using a single phone for work and personal applications is ideal, but you also want to keep your personal and work data separated and safe. With Secure Folder, you can choose to keep all your personal apps and information in one place. Secure Folder adds an extra layer of protection (you can use biometric authentication to access the folder) to ensure your personal life stays private and independent from your work life. For enterprise IT, Knox Workspace provides a defense-grade data separation solution to protect company data and apps.
6. A Mobile-Powered Desktop Experience
Whether you work at home and at the office or have to jet around the globe frequently for work, dragging a laptop back and forth is a hassle. Samsung DeX (accessory purchased separately) lets you lighten your load by using your Galaxy S9 or S9+ to create a desktop computing experience. All you need is a monitor, keyboard and mouse — or use the DeX Pad as a mouse — and you can get to work with contextual menus, drag-and-drop functionality and multiple, resizable windows. Plus, the DeX Pad fast charges your device.
7. Fast Wireless Charging
Never before have mobile phones been as essential for business, and a flat battery can flatten your productivity too. Not only do the Galaxy S9 and S9+ come equipped with powerful batteries that outlast your day, they also feature fast wireless charging. Simply place your phone on a fast wireless charging pad (accessory purchased separately) and quickly power up.
8. Brilliant Low Light Camera
Both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ feature Dual Aperture f1.5-f2.4 lens to let in more light when needed so you can capture brilliant photos, day or night. Want to capture a moment in slow motion so you can better analyze it? No problem — the phones also feature super slow-mo, up to 960 frames per second.
9. Smart Switch
You may love all the great features mentioned here, but still feel nervous about upgrading your phone. After all, migrating your data can be a time-consuming and stressful process. No need to worry: Samsung Smart Switch enables a seamless transfer of contacts, photos, messages and other data from your old work phone. Whether you’re on an older Samsung device, another Android device, an iOS device or a BlackBerry, you can choose from one of three easy ways to transfer your data: wirelessly, with a USB cable, or from a PC or Mac to your new device.
Are you working as productively as you could be with your current phone? If not, maybe it’s time to switch to the new Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+, where you can do more, see more and achieve more. Make the switch today.
