Top 90 Mobile Ideas in February

From Selfie-Enhancing Smartphone Cameras to Diverse Device Decals

— February 26, 2017 — Tech
The February 2017 mobile trends show that personalization is essential for consumers. In terms of both software and hardware, companies are finding ways to let people add their own flair to their devices. This can take the form of style or functionality, but in either case consumers are looking to turn their devices into reflections of their personal tastes and habits.

On the hardware front, a company called MightySkins offers decals to let users get creative with their devices. The decals come in hundreds of different designs, and the company offers different shapes to fit almost any device currently available on the market. Not only do the decals let people show off their attitude, but they have the added practical benefit of making one's device distinct from others, avoiding confusion.
