Mobile phones have become so much a part and parcel of our daily lives that imagining even one day without these technological blessings would be nothing less than a nightmare. Right from keeping us connected to our near and dear ones, sending text messages, capturing our favourite memories, listening to songs, playing games, browsing the internet and many more, mobile phones now play a crucial role in helping us stay connected, work or even have fun in a better way. That said, considering how much we love our mobile phones, here are 5 mobile accessories that you simply cannot do without.
1) Cases and Pouches:
Mobile phones are costly affairs and even more so if you have a hi-end smart phone like Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 etc. So, mobile accessories like Cases and Pouches are essential for keeping them safe as they prevent scratches and lessen daily wear and tear. Also, if god forbid, you accidentally drop your mobile, cases and pouches break the shock and thereby greatly reduce the damage. These days, cases and covers come in many attractive colours and designs – like glow in the dark covers, crystal studded cases, cartoon and movie character pouches and more. These covers are a huge fashion statement especially amongst youngsters. Also, covers and cases can lend a completely new look and feel to even old mobile phones. So these are definitely must-have mobile accessories essential for protecting as well as for jazzing up your phone.
2) Screen Guard
Who would like their phone’s screen to be full of nasty scratches? Scratches can especially spoil the look, feel and user experience of touch screen phones, making it slightly less responsive. Screen guards are the most excellent mobile accessories to protect mobile screens from scratches due to daily use and handling. The screen guard can be removed after a few months when it starts looking old and can be replaced by a new one. Underneath the screen guard your phone’s screen will remain new and shiny. Also when you plan to exchange your phone for a new one, lots of scratches will only lower its resale value, so screen guards are a must if you want your phone to look new and shiny for long.
3) Travel Charger
Even the smartest of mobile phones are no good if their battery runs out, especially when you’re travelling. Moreover, many people even tend to forget to charge their mobile phones when in a hurry to leave for work. Travel chargers or car chargers are useful mobile accessories to keep with you at all times. A travel charger lets you charge from the accessory outlet or the cigarette lighter outlet of the car. Travel chargers are very helpful for people who are always on the road and a convenient mobile accessory for busy professionals. There are three types of car chargers: fast chargers, rapid chargers, and trickle chargers. These differ mainly in their speed of charging the phone.
4) Bluetooth Headsets
In many states, talking on mobile phones without using a wireless headset is a punishable offense. Bluetooth headsets are mobile accessories meant for busy professionals who drive a lot and cannot afford to miss their work calls. Bluetooth headsets will not only make it a lot safer for you to take calls while driving but will also help you avoid fines and tickets.
5) Extra Battery
Extra battery comes in handy when you are travelling long distances and cannot charge your phone in-between. Simple take out the discharged battery and replace it with the new charged one. You can charge the other one later when you reach your destination. Most mobile phone batteries are small, light-weight and portable and don’t even cost that much. They can easily be purchased in retail stores or mobile outlets and can even be bought online.
