Beyond Gmail, these are the standard apps that come with G Suite:
Most folks know that Gmail and the various Google apps like Docs and Sheets are available for free. Why then would anyone pay for them in the form of G Suite?
G Suite is designed to provide a variety of business-oriented functions and capabilities. here’s a quick summary of why you might want to buy a G Suite subscription rather than using Google’s consumer versions of its apps:
G Suite is what we geeks call a SaaS app, for Software as a Service. You subscribe to G Suite, rather than buy it. Unlike old-school installable software like the core Office apps, you don’t install G Suite on your computer. Instead, you simply login to your G Suite account (much like you’d log into Gmail).
There are some mobile apps you can install on your phone, and there is an offline mode, so you can work on projects in G Suite without being connected to the internet. That’s helpful if you travel.
One of the benefits of G Suite is it allows you to set up your own, personal domain as your mail server. That means that you can have email addresses with addresses more unique than email@example.com. Instead, you can get and send mail as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, consumer gmail allows you to receive and send mail from a personalized domain as well. The difference is that to do so (especially to send), you need another email server that hosts that domain. G Suite handles the hosting of the domain, which reduces complications tremendously.
