Owning a smartphone is truly a wonderful experience. However, you need to have the right accessories to make the most out of your smartphone. Here are 5 top accessories are definitely worth investing in.
Screen Guard and Protective Case
Smartphones are simply amazing. There seems to be nothing that modern smartphones can’t do. However, no matter how awesome they are, smartphones are fragile. They aren’t made of porcelain, but one drop can be enough to shatter the screen. The first thing you should always get for a smartphone is a screen-guard and a protective case. The screen guard will protect the screen against scratches, as well as unsightly oil or water streaks. The protective case does not have to be a rugged piece of box that will make it impossible to fit the phone in your pocket. Leather cases offer good protection and do so in style.
The Bluetooth headset has almost become a mandatory purchase for anyone looking to buy a smartphone. Most countries in the world have traffic laws that forbid you to talk on the phone while driving. However, using the phone with a hands-free device is allowed. In the more expensive cars, the entire vehicle turns into a hands-free device when the phone is docked. For the rest of us who are not so privileged, a Bluetooth handset is the ideal solution. A good Bluetooth handset not only lets you talk hands-free, but also improves the audio quality of the call.
Portable Battery Charger
Smartphones are designed to give excellent battery life. However, smartphones are also designed to host a number of apps. The more apps that you use, the quicker the battery will drain. With so many free apps available, an average smartphone barely makes it through the day on a single charge. The most obvious solution is to take the charger with you wherever you go. But, what is there is nowhere for you to plug the charger in? Invest in a portable battery charger that can be plugged into your phone and help restore your smartphone’s battery life.
Car-dash Mount and Holder
One of the best things about smartphones is the in-built GPS capability. With Google Maps and nice data plan, most smartphones are good enough to replace your vehicle’s GPS system. Indeed, most GPS manufacturers now have apps on various mobile operating systems so that their customers can use their phones as a navigation system. If you wish to replace your old, bulky and obsolete GPS unit with your new sleek smartphone, it will be worth investing in a car-dash mount and holder for your phone. The holders generally have charging capabilities thanks to the cigarette lighter adapter.
Phone manufacturers do an excellent job to produce some really amazing smartphones. But, for some reason, they insist on supplying headphones that are usually quite inferior in quality. The processing power of smartphones means that the audio quality is generally quite good; not that you would ever know it thanks to the terrible headphones that are in the box. Do yourself and your ears a favour and invest in a good pair of headphones.
