With the application of the latest technology not only in smartphones but in audio devices, you can now enjoy a wireless experience listening to your favorite music, watching your favorite movie, or talking to someone conveniently without the hassle of enfolding or unwrapping the cable every time you use them.
On-The-Go or OTG USB Flash Drive
Not all mobile phones and smartphones have expandable storage feature. Sometimes when your budget is tight, you opt to buy the model with smaller internal storage and you realize later after taking few videos and several pictures that your device is running out of internal memory storage. When that time comes you are put in a dilemma where you need to decide which pictures or videos are less important to you for deletion.
Sometimes you try to capture a remarkable scene and when you press the video start button a caution “not enough memory” is displayed. Well that is frustrating, right. Sometimes in order to free up some memory of your handset you transfer files in a common USB type but can only be viewed in your computer.
At present, smartphone makers including Google offers free cloud services. However, it costs time and money to upload your files especially if you are in a data cap plan. Once saved in your cloud storage, you need internet connection to access them.
If you have an OTG USB flash drive, you can create an extra external storage that you can access with your smartphone anywhere even without internet connection. Just plug in to your smartphone and it automatically displays the files. You can easily transfer files from your smartphone to the OTG USB and vice versa. You can also view your pictures, watch your videos, or listen to your audio files directly from the flash drive. Although this function is mostly supported by the latest smartphone models,
just be sure that your phone supports OTG function.
Micro-SD Memory Card
If your smartphone or mobile phone supports expandable storage feature, then instead of buying the OTG USB flash drive, you can just purchase an additional external memory card to boost your memory storage to save your files. There are lots of Micro SD card available now in the market ranging up to 400GB. Well that’s a lot of storage capacity!
Not all mobile phone or smartphone features are created equal. Usually when you get the best camera phone or lightning speed performance phone, you get less of its audio feature. It is very difficult to find smartphone with good camera, better performance and good audio output in just one smartphone. When one feature is upgraded by the manufacturer, the other one is sometimes sacrificed.
However, this is not a problem anymore nowadays. If you want to jack up the audio output of your smartphone, you should try Bluetooth wireless speakers. This will allow you to amplify the audio feature of your not so good mobile phone or smartphone audio output.
Selfie Camera Light
If your smartphone has no dual front-facing camera, it is frustrating to get good and beautiful selfie pictures. You sometimes need to try different views or angles just to get the perfect selfie picture. If you love to take selfies and you do not want to buy the latest smartphone models, you can still improve and enjoy taking selfie pictures by using a selfie camera light or camera lens with selfie camera light.
