From a plethora of cases to enough ear bud choices to make your head spin, the cell phone accessories business is arguably just as lucrative as the phones themselves.
Much like any marketplace, however, the cell phone accessory business is equal parts big and riddled with skepticism as it relates to durability and necessity.
Certain accessories seem worthwhile, while others can be pinpointed as peculiar and seemingly a waste of effort on the part of the manufacturer and money spent by the consumer.
Easily the most purchased cell phone accessory is the case, and with so many to choose from it's hard to make an informed decision. That said, the case almost always is the one accessory you can't afford not to have, particularly if you've opted out of insurance for the phone itself.
Ironically, you can forgo one accessory with the purchase of the right case. If you're case shopping, the best advice is to not go cheap but rather invest in a case that isn't a simple rubber sleeve or cheap plastic model. You want a case that is more than just sturdy but rather carries a moniker of unbreakable or waterproof. Most of these cases will have a clear front to cover and protect your screen, thus making screen protectors a moot point. That, in turn, will save you from having to buy yet another cell phone accessory.
