    I am getting ready to upgrade my smartphone and I am looking for input on the best smartphone for business.

    I currently have an iPhone 4. I haven't really had any problems with it but I think I would like to get away from the iPhone.

    I've pretty well narrowed it down to the Blackberry Z30 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. I'm having trouble picking between the two but I am also open to other suggestions.

    What does everyone use? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the phone you use as it relates to running your business?

    Thanks!

    I like the ease of use and interface of Samsung but the durability lacked a lot. I'm currently using the nexus 5 and love it.

    Its an unlocked LG phone, you get all google/android updates first including newer OS as they are released.

    Personally, I was kind of leaning towards the Blackberry Z30 because it is built to be a business phone. I also like the operating system compared to Android. I am not a fan of the Android operating system but I do like the 16 MP camera on the Galaxy S5 as well as the high resolution screen. I don't think I could argue that the Galaxy S5 is a superior phone but I don't know that it would be the right phone for me.

    I have heard a lot of good things about the Z30's battery life. I think I read somewhere that it is supposed to last 25 hours with moderate use which I find to be pretty amazing.

    blackberries are a thing of the past.

    I have an s3 and note 2 that I swap back and forth between. Used to have iphones. Honestly its all personal preference. There are things the iphone did that the droid didnt do as well and vice versa.
