5 Things to Consider When Buying Smartphone Accessories

Nowadays, it’s not easy to buy a smartphone. On the other hand, buying smartphone accessories is not as hard as buying a phone, but you still need to consider a few things before buying accessories. Given below is a description of 5 things that you may want to consider while making this decision. Read on to know more.

1. Active and passive features

First of all, smartphone accessories can be divided into two categories for ease of understanding: active and passive. As the name suggests, passive accessories don’t perform a function. Some examples include a skin or cover for the phone. On the other hand, active ones perform a set of important functions, such as the camera lens, and Bluetooth earphones.

Don’t just count the features of the product that you have made your mind to buy. What you need to do is find out if the listed features really matter to you. So, you may want to read the features and compare each one to that of the competitors. This will help you make an informed decision. As a general rule, if you have no idea how to make the comparison, we suggest that you go for a reputable brand.

2. Quality and features

Some accessories won’t cost much but the features are appealing so you may end up buying that thing even if the brand is not a trusted one. But what you need to do is ensure that the accessory comes from a trust worthy brand or at least it’s semi-branded.

3. Warranty And Product Return

If a product comes with warranty, rest assured that it’s a reliable one. One way to know if a product is suitable is to look at its quality and cost. However, you may also want to take into account the return policy. Each product comes with a return policy, which is set by the company.

4. Price Drop

There are a lot of online stores that can help you save a lot of money. Aside from this, there are tons of add-ons and tools that notify you as soon as the price of a product comes down. So, it’s a good idea to use these tools to take advantage of the price drop.

5. User Friendly

Apart from price and quality, you may also want to check if the features of the product are important for you. The features should be user-friendly. For instance, a smart watch can’t be smart if its features and design is not user friendly. As a matter of fact, a product that is user friendly can save you a lot of time and money.

The takeaway

Hopefully, this guide can help you make an informed decision. You can buy a tempered glass protection or a selfie stick, but make sure that you choose the best product based on the advice given in this guide. It’s also important to buy at the right time and at the right price. Just make sure that you buy from a reputable brand as an unknown brand may not be true to its words and the product may not meet your expectations.


Keeping Aquarian Fish Healthy

My first aquarium was set up in my teens and comprised the normal cold water gold-fish. They didn’t survive long for some reason and the exercise of keeping fish as pets was soon abandoned. Years later, however, when my shop opened it was the tropical fish that took my fancy. They made a great addition to the flowers and other things that were retailed as part of my landscaping designing and florist business.

As an importer of these gorgeous creatures it wasn’t long before my keen mind had learned enough about them to be able to advise purchasers of their needs. With all the accessories they require on hand the display units made a wonderful display at the rear of the plants and other outdoor products.

With the lights on most of the time and the tanks decorated with weeds and rocks it was a lovely experience. The fish were lively and colourful. Along with the bubbles floating to the surface it could not help but draw people’s eyes.

As the large boxes arrived fresh off the aircraft the trick was to help them adjust to the new environment. That meant leaving their bags on the surface of the water for some time until the temperature inside the bag was the same as that of the tank. Even then other things had to be checked out.

The pH of the water is important and as most tap water contains chemicals, such as chlorine and, in Australia, fluorine the tanks have to be left for some time before the fish can be placed in them. As they had come from Asia and the water they were used to does not contain chemicals of this nature they could get sick if introduced too quickly.

It is these factors that make the keeping of tropical species a risky business. It takes time, effort, and a lot of money to set up a home aquarium and, unless one knows the correct procedure, the chances of survival is decreased. It took a lot of research before my knowledge was sufficient to deal with the many problems and anyone contemplating taking on keeping an aquarium needs to know how to keep the fish healthy.
