Smartphones: which one do you like best?

smartphones: which is the best?

Last year, Naked Security ran a short and sweet survey to find out what you thought of smartphones in the work place.

We had over 500 responses, with interesting results.

First, where your workplace provided you with a smartphone, we asked what they provided you with. More than a third were using a Blackberry, and almost a quarter were iPhone users.

results: what phone do you use

When we asked you what smartphone you wished your company supplied you with, a whopping 41% said you wanted a smartphone running Google Android. Less than a third coveted Apple iPhone.

Which smartphone do you wish work provided you with?

I found this a little surprising. True, you do have more flexibility with Android when compared to the iPhone. But the Google Play Android marketplace is currently more prone to malware; Google currently don’t police it as stringently as Apple manages its app store.

And finally, we asked whether you would install additional security software on your mobile phone if it meant that you could access your work emails, calendar and other information.

More than two thirds of readers who took part said that they would have work install additional security on their personal device, though 28% would also want work to foot the monthly bills.

Would you allow work to install security software on your personal mobile?
