Overall Even the same product, the features will be different if at the different prices and different platforms, so If you need to have a detailed understanding, please see the direct link we provide - detailed compatibility info. Overall, we think Spyear and Flexispy are comprehensive and powerful features but at a little expensive price, and if you are not required to have call recording, the PhoneSheriff is very cost-effective.

Overall Phone Wipe and Remote Locking features can help you erase all the information in your phone to prevent from theft of others in the case of your phone lost. And Time Restriction can help you prevent children addicting in the phone all the day. Live Control Panel can help you better manage your browsing monitoring information, and Phone Sheriff performs best in this aspect, but it does not support remote camera.
Stealth Capabilities The software which has the feature - stealth mode, can always run in the system background and will not be found by the mobile phone users.
ColorMango Score
Overall Unfortunately, Mobile Spy and PhoneSheriff do not provide Stealth Mode, and if you want to hide the software, please pay attention to the potential legal issues.

Reviews

Mobile Tracker Free
As a mobile phone monitoring freeware, Mobile Tracker Free provides very kind features, but the FREE version has a limitation of remote control, and also annoying pop-up ads, so if you don’t mind that you can use it to monitor control your kids.
Mobile Spy
This mobile phone monitoring software has various highlights in features, and not any major cons. Although it has no Stealth mode, it’s price is very affordable. It’s very suitable for parental control. (Compared to Phonsheriff, The Pro of Mobile Spy is able to support keylogger)
mSpy for phones
This is a common mobile phone monitoring software, and its price is not expensive. The highlight is its mobile activities recording features are very comprehensive, it’s enough for home users.
PhoneSheriff
PhoneShieriff explicitly provided two licenses - for parents and for business, this is convenient for user’s choice. And PhoneSheriff also offers lots of features that make you think it’s worth to buy it. The cons of this program are not providing call intercept, stealth mode and ambient recording such advanced features, neither in its business version. (Note: There is no functional difference between parents license and business license except the number of license.)
Flexispy
Flexispy’s pro is that it can monitor and record almost any phone activities. But its advanced features like Call Intercept/Recording and Ambient Recording, requires you pay for its more expensive Extreme version.
Spyera
The major cons of Spyera mobile monitoring software is its pricing. Compared to the similar mobile monitoring software in the market, Spyera is much more expensive than others. .Probably because Spyera provides the advanced features and does not divided into several different versions of basic or premium like other similar products, so that will cause some users who do not need the advanced features but spend more money on it. Although Spyera provides the advanced features like Spy Call/Call Intercept and Call Recording/Ambient Recording, it is still lack of the filter features like App/call Block, Website Filtering and remote locking. What’s more, Spyera is the only one product not to provide any demo or trial version for users. (Based on its price and functions, we recommend this product to business users.)

Suggestion

Home User
- For the 5-12 years old children, parents just only need to create a good and healthy environment, and the basic monitoring control features of this kind of program are enough for parental control children. Generally the freeware or low price software Mobile Spy and mSpy for phones are the good choice.
- For the 12-21 years old youth, you know at this range of ages youth would definitely go into puberty, if parents not properly take care or manage, the youth will be vulnerable by unhealthy and wrong in society. So it is recommended to use the more advanced features of mobile phone monitoring software, such as PhoneSheriff, Flexispy and Spyera, and each of these three software has its own advantages: PhoneSheriff with a strong information Filter / Block features, Flexispy and Spyera have a strong Keylogger, Spy Call / Call Intercept, Call Recording / Ambient Recording, Live Call Listening, so that let you can get more detailed kids’ activities.

Business User
If a business company want to use this kind of software product, we recommend the company choose the product that provides the advanced features of mobile phone monitoring software - Call Recording / Ambient Recording, Live Call Listening. Because if employees disclose any information from the company, this kind of program will help to get the evidence.

Note:
Using monitoring software please pay attention to the risk of the potential legal issue
