Let’s be honest, you’re probably never without your cell phone for a long extended period of time. It comes with the territory of today’s technologically reliant and sharing obsessed society. That’s why cell phone accessories are so great. No matter what you use your cell phone for or what your lifestyle is like, there are tons of cool gadgets made specifically for your precious cell phone. Check out these 10 must-have cell phone accessories.
People definitely have mixed feelings about this invention. On one hand, it’ God’s gift to the picture-taking obsessed crowd and on the other, it’s an obnoxious tool that should be taken off the shelves. But, let’s be honest, no one likes that awkward moment of going up to a rando minding their own business saying, “Can you take a picture of us, please?” This makes everyone’s life easier.
The moment your phone dies and you have no access to a charger is probably the most gut-wrenching feeling ever. Maybe that’s a little dramatic, but it definitely doesn’t sit well with most people. You find yourself feeling disconnected from the outside world, even if you’re surrounded by a group of people. Eliminate that feeling with a portable charger.
For you gamers out there who like the feeling of having an actual remote in your hand, this is perfect for you. This hooks right up to the game your playing and let’s you play like you’re on playing a TV. Seriously, so cool.
Nobody likes to work out while holding their cell phone. Even worse, no one likes getting to the gym and realizing they forgot their headphones. The Plantronics BackBeat FIT is the best solution for that. The reversible band fits your phone nice and snug inside and when you’re not using the pocket, it holds the stereo Bluetooth headphones that are included.
Instead of using the filters and options with the regular camera or Snapchat, this lens clips right onto your cell phone lens lets you take pictures using different lenses, including Fisheye, Wide-Angle, 10x Macro, and 15x Macro. It can be used with all camera apps. The Instagram filters got nothing on this bad boy.
Whether it’s for a beach day, or when everyone’s hanging out in the common room, or even while you’re taking a shower, there’s almost always a time when a portable speaker will come in handy, especially if it’s wireless. Instead of trying to hear the music on your tiny cell phone speaker, you can blare your favorite songs without missing a beat.
This probably has to be one of the coolest gadgets ever. If you would rather binge-watch Netflix, watch your favorite YouTuber, or listen to your favorite music on a big screen instead of your cell phone, this is for you. Turn your phone into a remote by syncing your Chromecast device with your TV and use your favorite apps and websites right on your TV screen. Awesome, right?
You want to change your screen protector, but you know there is no way you can do it without getting those little annoying air bubbles. This little tool will help you apply the screen protector nice and smooth.
Many people prefer to use a stylus on their touchscreen devices rather than their fingers. It is perfect for winter days when you have gloves on or your using a drawing app, or if you just want to use the stylus!
If there are moments in life when you pray your absolute hardest, dropping your phone is definitely included in there. It’s like everything slows down and you watch as your phone smashes on the ground. You take a breath and brace yourself for what you’re about to pick up and find. This is perfect for those moments because it takes the worry out. With a glass screen protector, if your phone falls, it’s the glass that cracks, not the actual screen. They can be a little pricey, but for the clumsy ones out there, it’s totally worth it.
