When you pick up your next new phone, don’t overlook the cell phone accessories that help you make the most of it. These small purchases can go a long way in helping you protect your new phone and enjoy it more fully. So, whether you are looking to outfit your new device or just complement the phone you already have, let’s take a look at a few of the essentials.
1. A phone case
If you buy a high-quality smartphone without buying a case, you’re likely to regret it. No matter how careful you are with your device, sometimes life happens, and it’s easy for you to end up damaging your new phone. Luckily, a good phone case can be relatively affordable. This makes picking one up a no-brainer.
2. Screen protectors
Just like with phone cases, screen protectors are a sensible investment. It’s a small purchase that can protect your valuable device from getting destroyed or damaged. You might not like the idea of buying something extra with your phone, but you’ll be very glad you did the first time something bumps into your screen.
3. A wall charger
While many phones come with a wall charger, not having an extra charger is like not having an extra key to your home. If you lose your only charger, you might suddenly find yourself unable to keep in touch with friends, coworkers, and family. For some people, it might even impact work.
4. Portable battery
It’s always pretty frustrating when you’re in the middle of something and your phone dies. If you’re away from a wall charger or your car, it can be helpful to have a portage battery that you can use to plug in your phone. This is especially nice for things like vacations, concerts, and festivals.
5. Headphones and/or a headset
For many of us, headphones and headsets have become a staple of daily life. We use them to join calls for school or work, stream our favorite shows, talk to our friends during online gaming, and listen to music. If you live with roommates or family, it’s nice to be able to enjoy your own entertainment without bothering those around you.
Wireless earbuds in particular can be really nice to have, especially when you are on-the-go.
6. Car charger
Car chargers can be almost as important as wall chargers for many people, especially if you rely on your smart phone for navigation. It’s always good to know you can charge your phone in your car, so you don’t have to lose your source of direction. You can shop for all kinds of chargers online with AT&T.
7. Car mount
You should absolutely never let your phone distract you while you are driving, but a car mount can help you use one hands-free to get directions without putting yourself in danger. Phone car mounts work by connecting to your windshield or dashboard and holding your phone in place with the screen facing toward the driver or passenger. These are perfect for both road trips and exploring your own hometown.
