Samsung recently launched its latest flagship- Galaxy Note 8.As you would expect, it is a great smartphone with all the latest specs. It packs in the Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895 chip (depending on where you live), 6 GB RAM, and a 6.3-inch QHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It’s also the very first Samsung smartphone to come with a dual camera setup, so if you are planning to buy it, you’ve made the right choice. Plus, there are a ton of accessories for the Note 8 that make sure you use the smartphone to its full potential. So, without any further ado, here is a list of the 10 best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 accessories that you should buy:
1. Gear 360 Camera
Gear 360 is a must-have accessory for all the photographers. If you are one of them, then I highly recommend you to buy this. It is a splash and dust-resistant 360° camera that can record videos up to 4K resolution. The camera has dual 180° lenses and can capture up to 15 MP photos. With its IP53 water-resistant rating, you can take it on any adventure and it will still survive. Moreover, you can use your Note 8 to control Gear 360 remotely. You can also share your photos and videos to Facebook, YouTube, and Samsung VR directly from your phone. An important thing to note here is that it requires a microSD card to work that you may have to buy separately.
2. Gear VR with Controller
With the Super AMOLED screen and the 1440 x 2960 display of your Note 8, you can surely enjoy a high-quality virtual reality experience. To make this even better, why not go with Samsung’s own Gear VR. It is powered by Oculus – the leader in virtual reality technology. Oculus regularly introduces new experiences like Hulu shows, guided meditations, and language tutorials that you can get access to with your Gear VR headset. The headset also comes with a handheld controller that you can use to explore the world, play games, and navigate with organic movements. To experience the virtual reality, all you have to do is place your Galaxy Note 8 into the Gear VR headset.
3. Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch
If you are into smartwatches, then what is a better way than pairing your Note 8 with Gear S3 Frontier. It is a water-resistant Tizen-based smartwatch that comes with Samsung Pay built-in. You can use this to make payments anywhere you can swipe or tap a credit card. Using Gear S3 Frontier, you can also receive texts, emails, and alerts without ever having to reach for your phone. With its built-in speaker and microphone, making and answering calls hands-free becomes very convenient. There are some other useful features that you get with the smartwatch like a GPS tracker, always-on display and the S Health app.
4. Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC
If you are a power user and are likely to use your Note 8 a lot throughout the day, then its 3300 mAh battery may seem a little less for you. However, that should not stop you from using your phone any less. With Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC, you get a power bank with a capacity of 10,000 mAh. Theoretically, on a full charge, this should be able to charge your Note 8 three times. This will undoubtedly allow you to use your phone as much as you want to throughout the day. Moreover, the power bank comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 to deliver the fastest possible charge for your Note 8 so that you can refill its juice quickly.
5. CHOETECH Fast Charge Wireless Charger Stand
So your Note 8 has wireless charging? But what good is it if you can’t use it conveniently while it is charging wirelessly? So to overcome this, you can use the CHOETECH Fast Charge wireless charger stand. It has two coils which offer a wide charging area and allow you to place your device in either the portrait or the landscape position. You can also use your phone to read, watch, or type while your it is gaining some juice. Though the stand comes with two different charging modes, you get the better “Fast Charge Mode” for your Note 8. Lastly, it has over-charging and over-temperature protection that ensures that the wireless stand never overcharges your battery or wastes any energy.
6. Samsung DeX Station
The Samsung DeX Station takes your Note 8 experience to a whole new level. Simply connect an external monitor to the DeX Station and then dock your smartphone to launch a special DeX mode. In this mode, you will be able to access your phone on the monitor. Not only that, the DeX Station comes with a LAN Ethernet, a HDMI output, and two USB-A 2.0 ports that you can use to connect a mouse and a keyboard to enhance your experience further. Also, you can open your app tray and launch them on the bigger screen. If all this isn’t enough, you can use the DeX Station the other way round too. This means that you can also launch a virtual desktop application to mirror and control your desktop computer on your Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
7. Clear View Standing Cover
The Clear View Standing Cover is an official cover by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 8. It isn’t available for sale yet, but its images suggest that you can get it in four different colors. Among the official covers, I would recommend this one as it is a lightweight case and doubles as a stand. Well, not literally a stand as you fold the cover to hold your phone at an optimal angle for viewing media. A very useful feature of the cover is the swipe gestures that you can use to perform actions like music controls and answering calls without having to open it. Also, the time, date and notifications are displayed even on the cover.
8. Galaxy Note 8 Screen Protector by MoKo
While the screen on Note 8 sure seems to be strong, you can apply a screen protector over the display for some extra protection. The Galaxy Note 8 screen protector by MoKo is designed to cover your phone from all sides. It boasts a 9H hardness and comes in as thin as 0.33 mm. This ensures that it will be resistant to scratches by keys, knives, or any other sharp objects – to quite an extent. MoKo boasts a 99.99% transparent clarity of your display on this screen protector. You also get an oleophobic coating which is meant to protect your phone from any smudges, fingerprints, or water or oil stains.
9. AUKEY Car Charger with Dual USB Ports
Having talked about portable battery packs, why waste its power when you can use a car charger to charge your Galaxy Note 8. The AUKEY Car Charger with Dual USB Ports allow you to charge two devices simultaneously. Both the ports offer Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology with AiPower Adaptive Charging to charge your phone in the shortest time possible. The car charger has built-in safeguards that protect your devices against excessive current, overheating, and overcharging.
10. SmartOmi Q5 True Wireless Earbuds Bluetooth Headphones with Mic
If you are into sports, then you know how helpful wireless earbuds can be. The SmartOmi Q5 True Wireless earbuds come with Bluetooth 4.1 for fast connectivity with your Note 8. You can use these up to a range of 10 m (33 ft.) from your smartphone. The earbuds come with a single button that can be used to perform actions like hands-free calling, redialing, and answering calls.
