9 enterprise-ready consumer smartphones

If you need a smartphone for both personal and professional use these nine mobile devices serve double-duty.

Nexus 6

The darling of Android purists everywhere, Google's Nexus 6 device, designed by Motorola, is a 6-inch smartphone that boasts some impressive features. The phone's size places it in the phablet category. Motorola made great use of the screen real estate, however, with a thin bezel and a resolution of 493ppi.

The Nexus 6 comes equipped with encryption by default and multiple-user support with Samsung Knox. Since it includes Knox, you can get enterprise-level security but in a non-Samsung Android device. So if you want to avoid TouchWiz, but love the security Knox offers, the Nexus 6 is a great compromise.

What makes the Nexus devices unique is that they offer a pure Android experience. That means, unlike devices from companies like Samsung, neither Google nor Motorola creates a skin on top of Android to alter it. You can get an Android experience the way Google designed it. It also means that you'll receive the latest Android updates first, so you'll never have to sit around waiting to get the latest software. It's popular with developers, and anyone who needs to work closely with Android. So if you find yourself dealing with Android apps frequently, or testing products on an Android ecosystem, it's a great consumer phone that can work for you in the enterprise.
