Hardware devices that make Android experience better

Well I know this is a very unusual topic but this will surely help you to make your Android experience better. I searched a lot about this topic but didn't find any compromising article that explains this thing. So I decided to write this topic for our readers. Let's start with the first device in our list.

1. An External Battery Bank (Portable Charger):

We all know that the battery life of Android is very less. We can hardly use our android device for more than 8 or 9 hours. That's why external charger is on top of our list. An external charger helps you to charge your device when you are out or at the times of power cuts.
How much does it cost?
The cost of an external charger depends on its power. You can buy an external charger anywhere between 300Rs. to 2000 Rs.

Things to check before buying External Charger:
  • First thing you have to make sure that you really need an external charger. If you only stay at home or office a lot of time than you probably don't need it but if you have a job that have a lot of outdoor work that you should definitely buy it.
  • Know the capacity of your android's battery before buying an external charger. And buy a charger that have double or triple the power of your battery so that you can easily charge your phone multiple times.
  • If you are buying online then first read the reviews of the product. Make sure that the product of from a good brand and doesn't have any problems.

2. An OTG Cable:

An OTG or On-The-Go cable helps you connect your pendrives to your android device. You can use this cable to connect any pendrive and view, cut or copy its contents. If your phone supports OTG then you should buy this product.
If you have a rooted android device that don't have an external memory card support than you can use OTG cable to connect a pendrive and make a backup of your ROM using recovery. This is really helpful sometimes.
How much does an OTG Cable costs?
The price of an OTG cable lies between Rs.50 to Rs.500.

Things to check before buying OTG Cable:
  • The only thing to check before you buy an OTG cable is for what purpose you are going to use it. If you want to buy an OTG cable for copying or viewing small sized data(less than 1GB) then you can buy any cheap OTG cable but if you want to copy/view large sized data (usually more that 1 or 2 GB) than buy a little costly cable.
