In the current day scenario, if there's one thing most of us can't live without, it has to be our smartphones (apart from free internet...pun intended). Be it checking mails in the morning, capturing some of those interesting moments in our lives, or be it browsing the internet, the smartphone gets the work done.
While there are people who even have no seconds thoughts on shelling out huge amounts of money from their bank account to get their hands on the latest smartphones, only a few invest on mobile accessories - which certainly do help improve the overall experience of a smartphone.
There are various reasons behind people refusing to spend money on accessories. However, one common reason is the 'cost' factor. People usually assume that mobile accessories come with a hefty price tag. To some extent it's true, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you won't get good accessories at affordable prices.
Here's a list of 5 mobile accessories that you can purchase under Rs. 500 in India.
10-inch Mobile Tripod
Smartphones are the new cameras these days. Although it may still take some time for phones to achieve what a high-end camera does, cameras on the current generation smartphones are highly capable. So, in case you're recording audios, videos or capturing those long exposure shots a 10-inch mobile tripod will come in quite handy.
There are plenty of tripods available on the online market space (Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, and others) for less than Rs. 500. Check them out. For those who are lazy to narrow down it from the vast range of options, the Mobile Gear's 10-inch mobile tipped is a decent option.
Flexible tripod for mobiles
While the above-mentioned tripod does a pretty decent job at what it's supposed to do, it can't be just placed anywhere or attached to anything. Which brings us to a flexible tripod. It, apart from serving the same purpose as the normal tripod, allows you to give it whatever the form you want. As a result, you can place it anywhere or attach it to anything. In simpler words, it offers more flexibility than anything else.
Again, there are a range of flexible tripods available under Rs. 500. Just open one of the e-commerce websites and you'll easily find the one which best suits you.
Multiport wall adapter/charger
If you are one of those people who carry multiple devices with you, then you'd definitely want to buy a multiport wall adapter/charger. Instead of carrying multiple chargers, you'll have to carry a single charger for all the devices. You'd still need as many number of cables as devices to charge them simultaneously, though.
The LDNIO 4 port USB Max 4.2A AC adapter is a decent choice under Rs. 500.
Be it for watching videos, reading e-books, surfing the internet, or just simply for charging, a phone/tablet stand will always come in handy. And the good news is you won't have to spend a fortune on it.
YT Mobile Phone Metal Stand is one good option. It is actually priced at Rs. 399 but is currently available at a discounted price of Rs. 249.
USB OTG Adapter (Standard/Type-C)
One of the most common problems on smartphones is the hybrid SIM slot setup. If you're one of those who likes to consume large amounts of multimedia and doesn't want to lose that secondary SIM slot then the USB OTG adapter is what you should be looking at.
There are plenty of adapters both (standard and Type-C) available on e-commerce websites. Choose whatever suits your needs the best.
