One of the best things about owning an Android is that they are compatible with many different products due to its open-source platform. What you use your phone for might be different than someone else, and there are accessories that everyone can use, for whatever reason. With all of the tech innovations and changes coming out in 2017, these are the ones we are most excited about:
Mophie Powerstation Pro
One of the most important accessories for any Android owner is a portable battery. While Android battery life tends to be better than some of its competitors, there are still many people who find themselves needing a little boost. This Mophie Powerstation has a 6000mAh battery that will charge your Android a few times. It is quite rugged and resists bumps, scrapes, and dust buildup. The look is quite great, but you do not have to worry about the inside, which is sometimes lost on the “cute” portable chargers.
Omaker M4 Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker
No matter where you go, a Bluetooth speaker will always come in handy. There are many on the market, but the Omaker M4 stands out from the crowd. First is because it is quite rugged -- you can easily throw it in your carry-on or luggage and forget about it until you need it. This model is waterproof and has a range up to 33 feet. The sound quality is great as well: 3W audio driver, a passive subwoofer, and NFC technology. You get 12-hours of playtime out of the rechargeable battery, which can be connected for longer play.
Heartwood Creation’s Cord Keepers
Cords are notoriously always fraying, ripping, and just not staying together. Heartwood Creation’s Cord Keepers hold your access cord, making everything simple and easy without all of the tangling, pulling, and ripping. You can wind any excess cord around the interior groove and the cord enjoys a nice ride in a satin confined space. It can also turn into a phone stand. When given to your friends and family as gifts, you may engrave them with many different carvings and phrases so they may think of you every time they charge their phone.
OCASE Waterproof Phone Case
If you spend a lot of time at the beach, are in the pool a lot, or are outside in the elements often, a waterproof phone case is a great way to keep your phone protected. OCASE fits all devices up to 5.7 inches and is one of the better waterproof cases. A pouch with an ultra-sensitive clear window and a clasp, all you have to do is slide your phone into the pouch and you can go up to 100 feet underwater. The screen allows you to use your phone underwater to take pictures and videos. For those more adventurous and active, get an added layer of protection with a strap to put around your neck.
Glif Adjustable Tripod Mount & Stand
With the Glif, you get two gadgets in one: a tripod mount and a prop to hold your phone in place. This is a simple accessory that is useful if you enjoy taking photos or videos with your device. Simply snap a rubberized plastic vice onto your phone and it immediately works, and it is small enough to fit into your bag or pocket.
