There has never been a better time to stream videos on your phone. With so many options available (including a potential Netflix mobile tier) and so many new smartphones with big screens, there's a good chance that you know someone who uses their phone mainly for video. And if you're looking for a gift for her, there are some great options.
As smartphones grow larger and more powerful, they have not surpassed the experience of a larger screen like a TV. But for someone who wants the best experience, there are a number of accessories that you can buy to compensate for this limitation, including audio quality and storage capacity.
We've tried to cover everything that could potentially enhance or complement mobile video consumption. Since we do not know everyone's budget, we've done our best to consider the cost and listing options in different price ranges so you can find something that suits your needs. The gifts are in no particular order, and each of them will make a difference to a person who fits in that category.

Before we jump directly to the accessories, let's talk about the smartphones. Even with the best accessories, the overall experience of watching videos is determined by the combination of components that make up the smartphone. While any large-screen mobile phone with a medium or higher SoC can do a decent job, it's likely to make the best of someone in your life who likes watching movies.
Fortunately, we have done the hard work for you by evaluating the latest mobile phones and creating a list of the best smartphones for those who enjoy watching movies. And for those on a budget, we've created a separate list for you so you do not have to spend more than $ 900 on a phone.
Below we link the first and second phone from both lists, starting with the cheap phones. And if you want to see our full test comparing the best mobile phones to watching movies, just after the phone calls, click on the links "Don & # 39; t Miss".
2. Gift Cards
Many consider gift cards to be the worst gifts, but this does not apply to film and television enthusiasts. After the phone is probably the most important thing a cinephile needs, content, and gift cards are the easiest way to ensure this. While gift cards can not be purchased online with every streaming service, most major players do.
For those who want to watch the latest movies and TV shows, Google Play and iTunes are the best options. Unlike other streaming services, they work more like VOD, allowing you to buy or rent content for a certain period of time. Here are all the latest movies as soon as their physical copy is published. Adding money to these gift cards gives you more options, as both cards can purchase books, music, and apps.
Prime Video is one of the largest streaming services available. It offers both a streaming service for which you pay annually as well as the ability to rent or own films and shows. Unlike Netflix and Hulu, however, it's tied to an Amazon Prime subscription, which means you'll also receive two days of free shipping, video game discounts, and more. Although you can not buy a gift card specifically for Prime Video, you can give away a subscription so you can enjoy not just two-day shipping, but hundreds of hours of video.
Let's not forget the cinemas. For the latest movies, theater is the best choice, and no guide for movie lovers would be complete without at least finding a way to give it. Fandango is one of the most popular websites for online tickets and for your phone. With Fandango, you can buy tickets in advance, select reserved seats and receive rewards for purchases. This is a perfect gift for our list.
