Our smartphone screen are getting bigger and there seems to be no stopping the process in the nearest future (no matter how we may feel about it). With screens being the biggest, most vulnerable and expensive-to-fix elements of our smartphones – all the ingredients for a disaster are in place, especially if you take your phone on outdoor trips and active adventures.
There is a great selection of screen protectors, that can keep your phone’s screen not only protected against impact, but also keep it clean and scratch-proof, with Gorilla glass screen protectors and tempered glass screen protectors being the most popular choices.
The accessory that seems to be meant specifically for summer months is a waterproof case. When headed for the beach, tanning by the swimming pool or simply splashing around in the fountain at the park, excitement can take over and you may forget about the expensive smartphone knocking about in your back pocket.

Qi charging mats come in different sizes and shapes and you may find it easier to take one along or just keep it in your bag for emergency cases.
