3 Android phone accessories to increase functionality and convenience

Your Android phone is great, but it could be better. Small additions can make certain tasks or functions much easier or more enjoyable, or at the very least save you time. Whether you’re a mobile gamer or a regular commuter, these seemingly simple accessories are some of our favorites.

Razer Kishi Mobile Gaming Controller

Mobile gaming isn’t the most intuitive experience. If you’re playing FPS games on the go, the touchscreen controls can be very overbearing. Most gamers come from a console background, so why not turn your phone into a controller?

Razer’s controller has a low-latency mode to ensure responsive inputs, a comfortable grip so you won’t drop your phone, and a series of rigid buttons to prevent misfires. This controller works exceptionally well with the mobile version of Xbox Game Pass, letting you play more complex games without cluttering your screen with prompts.

Mini Portable USB-C Power Bank

Having a little extra juice while you’re on the go is great, but let’s be honest – those full-size power banks are bulky and hard to carry around. YHO makes this ultra-compact bottom-loading USB-C power bank about one-third the size of those bulkier older models.

At 5200 mAh, it’s not the highest capacity, but external batteries are rarely used at 100% charge. Most mid-range Android phones fall between 6000 and 8000 mAh for battery life. This power bank will give you a significant boost, show remaining battery life on a small screen, and help you extend the use of your phone before you leave work.

Loncaster silicone car phone holder

Phone mounts with suction cups and adhesives can damage or deform your car’s console. They are a bit intrusive. Loncaster designed this simple silicone car phone holder so you can apply it anywhere on the dashboard, making it much more accessible than a fixed mount.

It’s simple silicone that sits on the car dashboard, supports your phone and makes it more accessible. The grooves inside keep your phone stable while the silicone absorbs shock from bumpy roads and turbulence while you drive.
