Choosing which mobile accessories to purchase has always been a problem for most of us. Sure, phones get better specifications every year (thanks to constant investments in research), but we can’t change the fact that we still need a bunch of accessories to enhance our mobile experience. And maybe that’s why tech brands started releasing innovations in the accessory market as well.
Case in point: wireless earphones, speakers and chargers. Although wireless earphones have been around since the 1960s, for some reason, they only ever gained huge popularity recently—starting with the “controversial” AirPods in 2016.
Wireless accessories are very convenient. For one, you wouldn’t have to spend minutes trying to untangle those cords. So we totally get it if you’re tempted to ditch the wires now. But there’s one problem: Seeing all these options from mainstream tech brands are making you feel overwhelmed. Understandable. We got you though. To make the purchase decision easier for you, here’s a list of our top picks for best wireless phone accessories.
Huawei FreeBuds Pro
If you’re the type of person who constantly communicates through voice or video calls, you might want to avail of the Huawei FreeBuds Pro that use the Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation Technology. Basically, the built-in microphones detect the out-of-ear and in-ear residual noise to generate accurate anti-noise signals, making audio calls clear and audible on your end.
These earbuds also have the unique Voice Mode², which reduces ambient sounds to make human voices stand out. This way, you won’t have to pause whatever you’re listening to just to hear the barista calling your name, or catch an important announcement at the train station.
Motivo Wireless Earpods
Motivo W10 wireless Bluetooth earpods are perfect for people who live an active life. These wireless earpods are waterproof and have an anti-slip component, so using them while sweating is not a problem. Each earpod has intelligent fingerprint touch, which means you can shuffle through songs with just one tap. But the best thing about these earpods? They are compatible with both Android and iOS.
There will be times when you’d feel too lazy to check your phone for notifs, and realme Band is a good solution for that. All you need to do is connect the band to your phone through the realme Link app on Google Play or Apple Store, click “Link a device” and it’ll synchronize all necessary phone data to the band.
Plus, realme Band can be your fitness partner. It supports nine modes: fitness, walking, running, spinning, yoga, crickets, hiking, climbing and biking. It is water-resistant, dustproof and has a real-time heart rate monitor.
The local tech brand also released its latest fitness band called the realme Watch S, in case you’re interested to check it out.
Huawei Mini Speaker
Not everyone is fond of listening to music alone—some people want to share their playlist. So if you’re part of that community, the Huawei Mini Speaker might be the best one for you. This speaker is literally the embodiment of “small but terrible.” It only weighs 101g, but has a hidden passive radiator at the bottom to deliver 360° stereo audio sound and deep bass. It’s also water-resistant so you can bop to your fave songs even while showering!
As of writing, some phones are already compatible with wireless charging such as the iPhone 8 and up, Huawei Mate30 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series and Xiaomi Mi 9. But what’s so good about wireless chargers anyway? “Charging cables can burn out your mobile phone’s charging port and damage it. By connecting your phone through a charging cable, you are directly exposing your phone to the electrical connectors,” said an American tech company.
It’s probably safe to say that tech brands will integrate the wireless charging feature on their flagship phones next year. So make sure to check this space regularly for the latest tech trends!
