Top 100 Mobile Trends of 2014

From Magic Magnetic Device Mounts to Extravagant Platnium Cases

— January 11, 2015 — Tech
Style and convenience are two big factors in the top 2014 mobile trends. This comes as no surprise considering that as people become more reliant on such devices, refining them becomes a bigger priority. After all, people are constantly carrying their smartphones and tablets around on a daily basis, making them part of their overall look.

Yet when it comes to convenience, looks take a backseat. Many of the solutions that are featured in the top 2014 mobile trends might be considered fashionable, but they are advantageous first and foremost. The more people use their mobile devices, the more they are looking for clever shortcuts to make their lives easier. This has manifested in Swiss army knife cases, magnetic holders and charging accessories as well as a slew of apps and tech concepts that extend beyond the products themselves.

Check out Trend Hunter's 2015 Trend Report to see how mobile trends will affect the coming year.
