Staying connected with a smartphone is considerably important today. Innovative smartphones such as the Galaxy S7 allow you to connect with your contacts through SMS apps such as Messenger and WhatsApp, and they can connect directly with your PC or tablet to optimize productivity.
Additionally, apps such as Evernote and Orchestra let you organize your files and to-do lists across devices and with others. Don’t forget the network: The reliable T-Mobile network, offering 4G LTE coverage from coast to coast, enables you to talk or text without ever losing a connection.
You can find times when using a tablet over a smartphone is more beneficial. Designers and artists may rely on apps such as Adobe’s Photoshop Express, which work better on tablets since the software package can better use the larger screen. E-readers such as Kindle and Flipboard are also better suited for tablets than for smartphones, and the big screens are easier for watching movies.
Connect your tablet with your other devices with cloud-sharing apps such as Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive to easily move files from your tablet to your phone or PC.
Some days are more intense on our devices than others, whether we lean on them more for their apps or whether we forget to charge them. You’ll likely have times when your phones start running dangerously low on power.
Devices such as the Backpack for the Galaxy S7 attach directly to your phone like a protective case to charge it. You don’t need to worry about bulkiness either; the Backpack’s 3100mAh power source is compact, and the device charges wirelessly, without needing extra items to plug in. For those looking for something more versatile, try the Letv Super Power Bank, a small charger that can connect to two devices at once and bring them each to full power.
A smartwatch such as the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier may be what you need if you’re looking to accessorize. With the built-in ability to connect directly to your smartphone, you’ll never miss an important call or message. In fact, you can use the watch directly to message back, using your voice to type or send a prewritten response.
Modern smartwatches also come equipped with features such as a step counter, for those looking after their fitness, and a calculator for any immediate math needs. You’ll never have to fiddle with your phone when you can easily access everything on your wrist.

Today, many of our household items, from our lights to our doors, can be linked directly to our smartphones. Take the next step and make them all voice-activated units by using a personal assistant, such as the Google Home or the Amazon Echo.
These voice-activated personal assistants function primarily as speakers for apps such as Spotify, but you can also tell them to do anything, from ordering an Uber to adjusting the temperature. Most of them are always listening, and you can activate them with a single word. Once you set them up, you don’t need to interact with your assistants using anything other than your voice.
Android Flash Drive
Modern smartphones can hold much data, but even large hard drives can get filled quickly with pictures, videos, and apps. An easy solution to this problem is to buy a flash drive specifically for your phone to store all the files you want to hold on to. Many of them, such as the Sony MicroVault, can attach to your keys so that you won’t lose them. As an added bonus, some Android smartphones come pre-equipped with software to immediately identify flash drives, making no hassle on your end.
With the six devices above, you can take control of organization and make 2017 a little easier on your life.
