In order to receive work emails on my iPhone, or to view calendar appointments or contacts or whatnot, my company no longer allows the usage of the standard apps. It requires downloading a third-party app that containerizes company mail and calendar data into separately encrypted storage. Additionally, the phone requires more strict security meaning it will lock very quickly and require passcode to unlock it. (Thumbprint on newer models.) And my company gets access to wipe the entire device.
I can understand those needs given the capabilities of the device. It doesn't have multiple user accounts. It doesn't provide fine-grained security (for example, simply swipe to get to the home screen and run most apps, but require passcode once you try to access some apps such as Mail). My employer deems its built-in security unacceptable.
Aside from those aspects, the iPhone doesn't have Continuum. MS Office on a phone is OK at best (which is the case for any data-entry-heavy application), but it can't beat the ability to use it on a full screen with keyboard and mouse.
And those are just my personal experience and thoughts, I'm certain I don't speak for many others who have other business needs. And please note, I'm not claiming any specific phone is better in all of the ways I mentioned... which is my point, the market isn't fully mature and MS would be in the best position to capitalize.
