Whether you’re about Samsung or Apple, these three accessories will greatly increase the usability of your phone. Here’s a list of our top new must-have gadgets to make for a better smartphone experience.
- Popsockets – Popsockets are golf ball sized accordion mounts that stick to the back of your phone. These little guys are incredibly versatile, customizable, and also very functional. They allow you to hold your phone easier and more securely when it is extended, and they collapse down to the thickness of less than a pencil in an instant. They can also make for a great phone stand when extended, holding your phone at an angle, making it ideal for watching videos. Not only can popsockets be functional, but the website makes it so easy to make your own custom design to add a personal flair to your phone. For only $15.00, you can customize your own and have it shipped to you on popsockets.com.
- Lifeproof Frē Power Case – The guys back at Lifeproof have been engineering the ultimate phone case for the iPhone 6 and 6s. This case has the well known Lifeproof protection against water, drops, and dirt. This time, they have stuck an 1,800 mah battery into the back of the case, which packs enough juice to fully charge your phone. The Lifeproof Frē can withstand drops of up to 6.6 feet, and can remain completely submerged at 7 feet for an hour. The Lifeproof gives you the protection and power that you need to take your phone to the extremes and not have to worry. What is truly remarkable about this case is that they have managed to keep it thin and light. At just over 4 ounces and 11mm thick, this case is small enough to use comfortably everyday. Lifeproof has also developed a series of mounts for the case, so you can use your phone to act like a GoPro.
- Gameklip Controller – The Gameklip is a device that allows you to mount your phone to a PlayStation or Xbox controller. It is intended to allow you to play games on your phone without getting hand cramps from trying to use those faulty touch screen controls. Whether it’s for FPS games, racing games, or just for easier control of certain apps, the Gameklip is certain to perform. The Gameklip comes with the mount that simply slides around the controller. No glues or assembly required. It also comes with a short cable that plugs into the back of your controller and into your phone. No unreliable bluetooth or wifi. The Gameklip is tested to maintain a firm grip on both your controller and your phone, so you don’t have to worry about either of them dropping and breaking. It can accommodate any case, and there are no settings to change. The Gameklip makes it truly simple and easy to play games on your phone, and it is changing the face of the mobile gaming industry.
