Best Accessories For 2015

One thing is clear. Our smartphones are getting more expensive. Phablets and the new iPhone 6 Plus are proving that these devices are costing us more to buy. As a result, cases, covers and protective screens are becoming ultra important. Most smartphones come with Gorilla Glass which is very strong, but it’s flaw is exposed if your unprotected phone slips and falls at an odd angle on pavement. A glass can crack!

So moving forward into 2015 and beyond, protection is obviously a big market for accessories. However, what about taking  your smartphone into your car? A lot of countries are dealing with distracted driving and using your phone while it’s loose in the car will cost you a hefty fine. That means car related accessories are more important than ever. Check out Bluetooth headsets, smartphone holders and other wireless communication products that will be for your car. To use your smartphone in your car legally, most countries require it to be fixed to your car via a holder. The good thing is there is a tremendous amount of selection out there.

Customizing your phone is also a big market in the accessories market. There are more expensive designer cases coming onto the market now. There are way to make your iPhone even more glamorous! There are also purses for your smartphones!

Most times, the covers and case products are going to be at the top of the best sellers lists. There are a lot of options and a lot of price points. A trend in 2015 is the growing popularity of clear bumper style cases. That means for example, the case is basically invisible, but still offers excellent protection from drops. People might think a phone is like a tablet, but it’s not. A phone is going to be with you far more than a tablet and because it’s going in and out of pockets or purses, there is far more risk from a drop on concrete surfaces. Most times a tablet will be at home or is a more “drop safe” environment. I urge you to consider a bumper style protection at the very least. Screen protectors may have less importance with the ongoing improvements with Gorilla Glass. However, keep in mind that things like sand, grit and diamond rings will put a scratch on your phones screen.

Buying the right smartphone case. Keeping it thin.

samsung-smarphone-caseI want to tell a bit of a short story. Not so much a story but it’s more a thought on the hard work your smartphone manufacturer put into the design and durability of your Samsung S3 or other current mobile phone. They always promo the thinness and you often see that thickness comparison in various reviews. People are quick to show off that slim profile compared to a pencil. This will continue to happen as the race to thin continues. How does this relate to smartphone cases?

Call it a pet peeve of mine but there is a line you have to draw between keeping your smartphone safe vs keeping it beautiful. These phones are becoming works of art and a thick, bulky case can really do injustice to the feel and design. If you’re prone to dropping your smartphone then sure, get that rubberized shell case that is a best seller. These smartphones cost more and more money and saving it from a fall is smart. I’m simply suggesting to choose carefully and decide your own preference. Keep it safe or keep it thin? That really is the question you’ll need to decide on your own.

Just keep in mind that when they design these cutting edge smartphone they aren’t putting them in a case to decide whether it feels right or not. Depending on what you choose you could be getting less from your device.
