We all like to complement our gadgets with new accessories. While cases, covers and screen guards are some of the most commonly purchased accessories today, there are other smartphone accessories which can enhance your phone’s functionality. If you have recently bought a new Android smartphone and are looking for useful accessories to go with it, we have a list of affordable phone accessories you can buy in India. Just in case you do not own a smartphone yet or are looking for an upgrade, check out the range of Indian smartphones by Lava Mobiles here.
1. Portable Chargers / Power Banks
An essential accessory to have for smartphone users – portable chargers or power banks as they are popularly known as, can extend your phone’s battery by a couple of days or more, depending on the one you select. There are many variants available in the market, and you can get a power bank with decent battery backup for INR 1500/- or less. Ideally, look for a power bank which has at least 2 USB ports and a minimum capacity of 10000 mAh. However, modern smartphones from Indian manufacturers like LAVA can also be an option if you are looking for extended battery backup.
2. Car Mounts for Smartphone Navigation
Navigation is one of the most useful features offered by 4G smartphones. Google Maps remain unrivaled in detail and features, continuing to be the best navigation software on every smartphone platform. However, we often struggle with holding our phones the right way while using navigation and driving simultaneously (which is not the right thing to do). The solution to this is a straightforward one – just buy a good quality car mount for your phone. You can buy a good car mount for your phone from online portals like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, and PayTM. Download their apps from Google Play Store on your Lava phone – as apps offer better deals and discounts too.
You can now also download the Android Auto app from the store and use it with a supported car system.
3. Camera Lens Attachments for Smartphones
Phone camera accessories are quite popular these days as smartphones have mostly replaced point-and-click cameras. These smartphone accessories enable optical zoom on phone cameras. Optical zoom enhances the picture quality of distant shots taken with your smartphone, letting you capture those long shots when you are on your next Manali trip. You can also look into the Lava Z series if you are looking for a good camera phone to go with your accessories.
4. USB OTG Storage Devices
One of the biggest advantages of owning latest Android phones is the number of features you get. USB on-the-go (OTG) feature lets you connect a pen drive to your phone through the Micro USB port used for charging the device. These devices can be used to expand the storage of your device or to view external content such as movies, videos, and photos on phone’s screen. Most Lava phones come with large 5″ inch displays, which make viewing content an immersive experience for multiple users. You can also choose a Lava smartphone with 32 GB internal storage to avoid running out of memory space.
5. VR Headsets
Virtual Reality is the latest craze hitting the smartphone world. While the technology is still in its nascent stage at the moment, the experience is quite enthralling. You can get a VR headset for your Android smartphone at very reasonable price from the aforementioned online stores. To experience some of the more immersive VR features, download the YouTube app on your Lava smartphone and look for VR enabled videos. Some of the more exciting videos can have you zip-lining down a valley or jumping off a cliff.
