My To 5 Accessories [With links]
I don't really post as much on here as i used to when i had my touch pro 2 but i just thought i'd help some people out who where looking for some accessories for their new toys. After paying $500 for this, as i used to upgrade for a hd7, i knew i had to get the best products to make my phone better. And before anybody asks i'm not affiliated in any way with any of the companies whose products i will be discussing.
1. GadgetShieldz Full Body Screen Protector
I have tried random cheap screen protectors, zagg screen protectors and this. The zagg screen protector was too rubbery for me to even swipe my finger across it. I've been using gadgetshieldz on my past 4 htc devices starting with the touch pro and these are by far the best i've used. Not many air bubbles if you apply it correctly and the few that do come up with be gone within a day. And the best part about these screen protectors are that it only cost $6.99 for a full body case.
2. Anker 1900mAh Extended Battery
I've been using this battery for about a week now. Compared to the oem battery it does have a better battery life. I have not really tried to see how old it lasted but in the settings it said that the last cycle held 11 hours and 40 minutes before it died. I have had it die on me a few times because i don't charge it a lot but that's been intentionally to let it die from reading around about lithium batteries. It also does not get as got as the original oem battery which i like the most. I plan on getting a few more of these next month.
3. Transcend 32 GB Class 4 microSDHC Flash Memory Card
This doesn't even need much explination. Everyone likes to have more memory. I put a 32gb card in my hd7 as i thought i was going to keep it and i knew i needed one for the sensation too. I am one of those people that downloads a lot of apps plus i wanted space for music and videos. The speeds on this card are pretty face. I get an average speed using teracopy of 18 to 20mb/s. That's a lot faster than my class 2 card that came with my hd7.
4. Aluminum Metal Case for HTC Sensation 4G Z710e
I think this company used to be called monaco as they make the same exact cases as monaco did. I bought my first monaco metal case for my tp2 when i found out about it on here and haven't looked back since. I always purchase these metal cases because they protect my phone in case of falls and i can use the phone which it is in the case. It has cut outs for all the ports. I think this is for the sensation unlocked because all the other metal cases i got from them have cut outs for the logos but the phone still fits none the less. What i like the most about this case is with the clip attached i can lay it on it's side and it would be like a kickstand because it can be used in landscape mode when watching a movie. Also you can use the case with the car mount that i will talk about next
5. Car Mount for PDair Aluminum Metal Case
This is a car mount that can be used with the case that i just mentioned previously. So you can attach it without taking the phone out of the case. This works great when using it for navigation. The car mount comes with the windshield cup, the holder that attaches to it and a clip holder for the case. The aluminum case comes with a round clip that screws into the back for the belt holder. This one comes with another clip that has an octagon shape that allows you to place it into the car mount so that it will stay at the angle you place it. I always super glue this clip mount to the case so it does not get unscrewed. I have no reason for the one that comes with the case as this works with the belt holder as well. The car holder cost $12
6. Logitech s120 computer speakers
I got these for 2 reasons. My main reason was the obvious which was for music purposes. Since i've gotten this phone i've been listening to pandora and i also have a nice amount of music on my phone. The second reason was to use it as a speaker. I've never really had to use it as i'm content, not happy, but content with the volume of the speaker on the sensation although i liked the hd2's speaker better. These speakers have served good my all general purposes. Plus for $12 it'll work nice when listening to music with friends.
7. Motorola S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones
I bought these a few months ago when i had my hd2 or hd7, can't remember but anyways i got them to replace my logitech freepulse headphones as the cushioning on them started to come off. I also wanted bluetooth headphones that i could also use as a headset to talk through. These work perfect for both intentions. The music sounds crisp and i have never gotten a complaint when talking to someone with them. I chose these over the s10s because of the reviews between the two. I paid $60 when i got mine but you can get them for $45 now.
8. Motorola T505 Bluetooth Portable In-Car Speakerphone
I have had this for a few years now. I used to have the t305 but i upgraded to this. The sound quality is pretty nice and audible even when your driving with the window down. I like this speaker because it actually annouces the number of the person that is calling you.
If i have time i will take pictures of these items and post them on here. I hope that i helped someone out who is trying to find the perfect accessories.
