OnePlus's first true wireless earbuds, the succinctly named Buds, were a great value at $80.

There are plenty of great choices for web browsers on Android, but if you have a cheaper (or older) device, you may find the top picks unsatisfactory. For example, Chrome can slow down quite a bit on low-end phones and tablets, and Firefox isn't much different.
