Alright, so you have a smartphone. Brilliant! I am sure that you want to kit it out with some pretty cool smartphone accessories as soon as possible, right? Of course you do!

However, where do you begin? Well, this list is a pretty good starting place. Here, I am going to go through a few of the best Android smartphone accessories and Apple smartphone accessories around. I can pretty much guarantee you that you are going to love almost every single item on this list.

So, without further ado, let’s take a little look at these cool smartphone accessories, shall we?

SanDisk Ultra 32GB UHS-I/Class 10 Micro SDHC

Let’s begin with one of my favorite Android smartphone accessories around; a memory card. Now, as you may well know, Android phones, in particular Samsung phones, tend to have expandable memory features.  This means that instead of buying a model with more storage space, you can just slot in a MicroSD card and you should be good to go. You can’t, sadly, do this with iPhone devices.

Now, there are a number of MicroSD cards available on the market at the moment. However, this is one of my favorites. SanDisk makes fantastic MicroSD cards. In fact, they make some of the best around. The prices are nigh on unbeatable at the moment too. This is a worthwhile addition to your phone.

Smartphones, as brilliant as they are, are absolutely awful at retaining battery life. The last thing you want to have happen is being ‘caught short’ whilst you are out and about. That is why you want this portable charger, just slide it right into your pocket. It can give your phone about 14 hours extra talk time on a single charge. It can also give you a decent amount of music playback too. This is a ‘must have’ cool smartphone accessory.

There is not much to say about this accessory. All you need to know is that if you have a car, this is something that you are going to want to own.

iXCC 3Ft Gold Plated Design Auxiliary Cable

If you are connecting your smartphone up to an audio device, for example a speaker system, then you are going to need one of these cables. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are cheaper options out there on the market. I do not recommend them though. You want something which is able to perform the job well. The gold connectors on this particular cable ensure the clearest signal being transferred from your smartphone to your speaker system, car, or whatever you are transmitting your audio too. This means fantastic sound time and time again, and it is pretty affordable too.

I am not going to lie to you here, although you probably already know this, but Apple is notorious for overcharging for their Apple smartphone accessories. Thankfully, Apple has stepped in here to save you a bit of cash. This particular Lightning cable is unlike any other cheap one you have seen on the market. This one has actually been certified by Apple for its quality. This means that you know that it is going to work well with your Apple device. Would Amazon let you down? If you are going to buy this, then snap up the wall charger too, just so you have a complete system.

Yep. I am including the good-old selfie stick on the list of cool smartphone accessories, even if you are going to look anything but cool whilst using it.
