32 Convenient Smartphone Add-Ons

From Modular Phone Peripherals to Mobile Microscope Adapters

— December 21, 2016 — Tech
These smartphone add-ons range from modular camera lenses that boost the quality of phone photographs to mobile microscope adapters that are designed to upgrade devices to feature lab-grade capabilities.

Other notable innovations in this realm include smartphone camera modules that are waterproof along with multi-functional device mounts that power iPhone and Apple Watch duos while doubling as a sleek display unit.

Additionally, examples like Edward Snowden's controversial and privacy-protecting mobile case, the 'Introspection Engine' aim to block surveillance attempts and are ideal for those looking to avoid cases of identity theft or other similar security breaches. Rounding off this list are smartphone-sized guitar amps that offer premium sound quality despite their size and mobile storage keys that are handy for users looking to clear up their storage while on the go.
