We have just completed our busiest month of the year when it comes to technology releases, especially smartphones. With many new products on the horizon from the likes of Apple, Google, and Samsung, protecting your new investment is paramount. Here is our compilation of the best new smartphone accessories for 2020.
The first place your phone needs to be protected is that fragile glass screen. Diamond Dog, don’t make your run of the mill glass screen protectors, they claim theirs is the last one you will ever need thanks to their patented diamond-like carbon coating.
With a simple promise to protect, extend and get the most life and performance out of your mobile devices, they have been protecting hard media devices for nearly 25 years and know their way around extending the longevity of your devices. What makes their screen protectors so special is that their tempered glass combined with their DiamondClad Diamond-Like Carbon Coating Technology and vacuum processed oleophobic anti-fingerprint technology, applied to real tempered glass, provide significantly extended protection from screen smudges and fingerprints.
Not only does your mobile device interface perform as naturally as the phone’s screen does it has been lab-tested to protect 3-6 times better against scratches, 5 times better against abrasion, and 3 times better against impact than leading competitor screen protectors. Best of all, if anything happens to your screen protector during your time owning the device, they will replace it after you register your purchase.
We recently were given the opportunity to review two of our favorite protective cases from industry leaders UAG and Speck and if you are looking for a stylish and grippy case for your butterfingers, you have found them.
The UAG Civilian is not like the industrial style UAG cases of old and takes a more reserved or stylish approach to protection that we love. With its classic impact resistance bumpers, hexagon shock absorbing core with oversized buttons and a two-tone design motif, it is a head-turner.
Best of all, it is fully compatible with wireless charging and meets military drop-test standards [MIL STD 810G 516.6] providing increased shock protection. Engineered to dampen and disperse the energy created when a mobile device collides with another surface, this one will protect and look good doing it!
Alternatively, the Speck Presidio 2 Grip is their second generation of what we would call the ultimate grip case. Offering an enormous 13 feet of drop protection and Microban® antimicrobial protection, this is not only a joy to hold but Covid friendly too!
Their Armour cloud technology is comprised of unique air capsules to compress and suspend your phone on a protective cushion of air, just like an airbag in the event of a drop. We are also big fans of the raised bezels around the screen and camera and love that they back it up with a lifetime warranty to boot!
Their newly innovated no-slip grips are an improvement from the first generation of this case all the while keeping a slim form factor that is also wireless charge compatible. This could be the ultimate case for those likely to drop their new devices!
Imagine one charger to rule them all? This is it! Hyper Juice is the size of a credit card and can simultaneously quick charge 4 devices: laptops, tablets, smartphones & mobile devices.
With 2 x USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 (Max 100W) and 2 x USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 (Max 18W) ports, there are no more bulky messy cables thanks to its unique plug and charge wall design. It is also powered by world-first Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology that is smaller, faster, and more efficient than traditional silicon used in current chargers.
Best of all, you get overcharge protection and friendly pin converters in the box for traveling. They simply don’t get better than this one for just 1 bill.
