Note that these are listed online at the time of writing, and we've made sure that these are available for purchase. Check our these five really cool accessories for your smartphone.

Stylus plus

Micro stylus and dust plug

Even though bigger touch screens offer superb experience for fingers, some users still prefer a stylus to get things done – especially productivity-related tasks that need more accuracy or drawing and doodling.

However, unless you have a device like the Samsung Galaxy Note which comes with a slot to keep the stylus, it becomes cumbersome to carry one. With a Micro stylus you can get your work done and keep it safe when not in use. It simply plugs in to the 3.5mm audio jack and also prevents dust from getting in, which is a major cause of damage to the audio port.
