During quarantine, many of us have increased our screen time to some degree. More than ever before, your smartphone is your direct link to communicating with others, entertaining yourself, educating your children, and working from home. But, any smartphone is a hefty investment and should be protected as such, especially we need these smart devices to maintain some sense of normalcy.
Therefore, it is high time that you invested in a few smartphone accessories. Now, heed our advice when we say that the glossiest phone accessories are not always the most worthwhile or needed. Instead, the right phone accessories and equipment ensure that you’re getting the absolute most out of your device – all while protecting it from unexpected accidents or occurrences. Most of these picks might seem obvious to most – but here are the 3 smartphone accessories that you can no longer afford to go without:
There is certainly no shortage of phone cases on the market. From Otterbox to Juice Pack, everyone has their preference. Just make sure that you don’t skip the case – and depending on the case you choose, the screen protector – because it could be the most worthwhile protection for your smartphone and all of its heavy usage. Thin or thick, make sure your smartphone case has a good bit of shock-absorbing protection! You won’t regret it.
You may not be going a ton of places right now, but portable chargers are always a must to keep your smartphone charged and at-the-ready. When you’re using your smartphone for checking email, catching up on your favorite TV shows, and keeping in contact with your family, friends, and co-workers via video chat, you use a lot more battery power than you realize – so, it’s best to be prepared when you’re caught in a pinch!
Wireless earbuds are all the rage in 2020. If they aren’t included with your smartphone purchase, they are definitely worth the extra cost, in our opinion. Coming in all shapes, styles, and sizes, every type of earbud has its specialty, whether it’d be built with noise cancelling capabilities or sweat-resistant technology for your next workout routine. Come on— aren’t you ready to finally ditch the wires and enjoy sound in the way it is supposed to be experienced?
