You just bought the Motorola phone of your dreams, so now it is time to consider accessories that make the most of your new Motorola. In shopping for Motorola accessories, consider audio peripherals, powering options and accessories that provide protection from damage. These broad categories further sub-divide depending on needs.
Damage protection is arguably most important. A Motorola phone represents an investment in a quality electronic device, so the first priority is protecting the purchase. First, consider a plastic film screen protector. It is difficult to read a scratched screen, and screen protectors are an inexpensive way to prevent damage. Balance the cost and number of protectors in a pack with the quality of a protector’s plastic. “Cut to fit” film is often less expensive, but a protector pre-cut to your phone model often has a better fit and lasts longer.
Also, evaluate how hard you are on your Motorola. A basic sleeve, clip or hard shell case prevents everyday wear and tear that results in dings and scratches. If you are rougher on it, purchase a “sport” style case that also absorbs the shock of hard drops. Other cases offer other extras, such as a kickstand or a runner’s armband. Moreover, cases and other protective accessories often have special designs to express your passions and personality.
As a device oriented primarily toward sound and calling, consider what audio purposes you have for your Motorola phone. If you primarily use it to listen to music and podcasts, consider a high-quality set of earbuds or headphones. If you are constantly making phone calls, buy a wireless headset or earbuds with an incorporated microphone and volume control. If you have to call hands-free, a quality speakerphone accessory or car dock is essential for convenience and safety.
Finally, your Motorola phone is instantly worthless to you if the battery power dies. Make plans to have backup methods to charge your phone. Depending on your needs, consider a car charger, a backup “quick charger,” a solar charger or simply one or more backup replacement batteries.
Other accessories for a Motorola phone are as varied as your individual needs. For example, if you have poor tower coverage, consider an antenna, and if you need detail on a touchscreen, get a quality stylus. Accessories for a Motorola phone are nothing without the phone itself, but they are essential for realizing the full potential of your new Motorola.
