Choose Smartphone Accessories for Your Favorite Activities

Many people find themselves using their smartphones as a way to enjoy their favorite activities, but they may find that their smartphones are a bit cumbersome to use effectively. Many people can find a way around the inconvenience by using smartphone accessories for their favorite activity, and they’re not hard to find. Discover several accessories that people can use to tailor their smartphone experience to their own needs.

Bluetooth Keyboard

Typing a long email, messaging a friend with details, or performing a complex search can get annoying when using a small smartphone keyboard. The most effective way to get around this problem is a Bluetooth keyboard, but who wants to carry a full-size keyboard around in a pocket?

Enter the foldable Bluetooth keyboard. The market is full of Bluetooth keyboards; some are good, and some are poor products. Consumers should do research to decide if the model they’re interested in can do the job. Look into battery life, how well the keyboard holds up to constant folding, and responsiveness over time.

Waterproof Cases

People who spend a lot of time near, in, or on the water can breathe easily. Waterproof cases, which are more like a pouch, help to keep water out even if the smartphone gets dropped into the water. They don’t have headphone jacks, but the plastic material is touch-sensitive, permitting use of the phone with a Bluetooth speaker or headphones.

The one-size-fits-all nature of the cases means that almost every smartphone fits, and you can find cases made for specific models for ones that don’t. While you can’t always eliminate the risk of water damage to a phone, you can greatly reduce that risk and enjoy the phone in a wet environment.

Bluetooth Speakers and Headphones

Smartphones don’t always have the best speakers. Some manufacturers may not specifically focus on putting in the best sound technology, or they may place speakers in the rear of the device. The result is tinny or muffled sound which doesn’t do justice to music or speech. Many resort to using Bluetooth speakers and headphones to get around this problem.

Portable Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes while delivering outsized sound. In other words, the sound these speakers deliver seem as though the sound should come from a larger speaker. Additionally, the sound quality is crisp and clear, and the speakers also come equipped with microphones, which allow them to be used for hands-free phone calls. This feature is especially useful when you’re driving a vehicle as you don’t have to worry about wires getting tangled up from a wired headset.

Headphones are much like the speakers in that you can find an impressive selection of models on the market. Those who want the best in headphones can’t do better than going straight to Beats by Dre. These headphones do everything you need and do it better than almost any other maker. Combine Beats by Dre on a smartphone connected to T-Mobile’s network for an uninterrupted, better listening experience when streaming music on the fastest, most advanced national 4G LTE network.

Camera Lens Enhancements

Many people use their smartphones in place of the point-and-shoot cameras that once dominated the market. But not every smartphone you’ll find will have lenses that are the same in terms of quality.

One of the ways to get around this issue is to use external lenses that add range to the on-board lens. Simpler models involve using a clip-on with screw-on lenses. Each lens has a specific purpose such as zoom, wide-angle, and fish eye. More expensive models, made by major name manufacturers, slip onto the phone and connect to the camera through Bluetooth. This feature gives phone users more control over the lens and shaping the image.

Above are just some of the accessories that enhance a smartphone to the point that the phone does what the user wants. It takes a little effort and experimentation to find the right accessory that meets your expectations, but you can almost always find some device in the marketplace that works.
