When the Galaxy S8—the much-anticipated new model from Samsung—was released earlier this year, expectations were high. A lot was riding on this new smartphone, as Samsung is still coping with consumer confidence after the disastrous fall out of the Galaxy Note 7 and subsequent recall.
But rave reviews for the phone started coming in, and now, apparently, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is selling like hot cakes. With a large, beautiful infinity display screen (5.8 inches for the S8, 6.2 inches for the slightly larger S8+), prolonged battery life, water resistance and an external storage slot that allows for expandable memory, it’s easy to see why. So now that you’ve got a sleek new smartphone, you’ll want to stay current with these must-have Samsung Galaxy S8 accessories.
Top Samsung Galaxy S8 Accessories
While the phone itself packs a decent punch, it is made all the more dynamic with these Samsung Galaxy S8 accessories.
Phone Cases and Covers
To protect your phone from drops, scratches, and collisions, phone cases and covers are an absolute necessity. Below are a few of our favorite Galaxy S8 cases and covers.
Clear View Standing Cover
Allowing for multiple viewing angles, the Clear View Standing Cover from Samsung is a must-have. The transparent, full-screen cover lets you access critical info even when closed. With a kickstand support and six different color options to choose from, you can personalize your Galaxy S8 while getting superior protection.
CM4 Q Card Case
Foster simplicity in your on-the-go lifestyle, with the CM4 Q Card Case, a dual-purpose case that safeguards your phone and doubles as a wallet. The slim back pocket can fit up to three cards plus cash and the innovative covert kickstand slot lets you use one of those cards to prop up your phone at two different viewing angles.
Samsung S8 Power Extras
Even though the powerful Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery promises up to 20 hours of talk time, quick wireless charging options are great to have on hand.
Wireless Charging Convertible
The Galaxy S8 comes equipped with high-speed wireless charging technology. To take full advantage of this fantastic feature, invest in the compatible Samsung wireless charging plate, which restores your phone to full battery without a ports, cables or wires. The Charging Convertible can switch seamlessly between a flat pad or stand for optimum viewing, even when charging.
These extras are truly that: extras for enhanced entertainment.
AKG Tuned Earbuds
When you buy the Samsung Galaxy S8, these ergonomically designed earbuds come included. While they are free, thanks to the superior sound quality, these earbuds warrant a price point of their own.
