which enable vs that enable

I was writing a small paragraph about cellphones and then I realized that I couldn't tell the difference between when to use "which" and "use". Which one do you think it's the best option:

"Mobile phones are devices that enable the user to communicate..."
or is it
"Mobile phones are devices which enable the user to communicate..."

For some particular reason, i think that the first option is the correct one and that "which" goes better with allow rather than with "that", but that's up to you to tell me the difference.

    A mí, dan igual. Puedes usar cualquiera en este ejemplo. "That" puede ser mejor gramaticalmente, pero los escucho como iguales.
