2. LK Galaxy S8/S8+ Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Buy from Amazon ($12): Galaxy S8 | Galaxy S8+

The Galaxy S8’s exquisite display tech requires a purposefully designed screen protector like this one. LK’s solution isn’t just a glass film, but a whole front shield for the phone. This way, the protector will stay firmly in place, and the S8’s front and bottom lip get to be covered, too! LK is selling a 2-pack for $12, which is very inexpensive.

Wait, do you really need a screen protector? You betcha! This little thing will keep the display scratch-free and very likely save you from undergoing a screen replacement – which can be costly and time consuming – if you ever crack the glass. It’s a very sensible investment that’s still overlooked by many for whatever reason.

3. Car charger with fast charging

Buy a car charger from Samsung ($30)

Alternatively, browse high-rated Quick Charge 3.0 car chargers on Amazon

Your best shot at a car charger for the Galaxy S8 right now is one of the 3 Samsung products available. They support its Adaptive Fast Charging technology, which means they’ll shake hands with the new phone immediately.

However, the Galaxy S8 could be using a newer iteration of the standard than what’s supported, and American models might be relying on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 tech present in the Snapdragon 835 processor. But no accessories that officially support them are available yet, so you must choose among Samsung’s products, or the large variety of nice and cheap Quick Charge 3.0-compatible chargers sold at Amazon.

Both types will still charge the Galaxy S8 reasonably quickly, so don’t worry too much about those standards.

4. Samsung 256GB EVO+ UHS-I microSDXC card

Buy from Amazon ($146.48)

Not feeling that 64GB storage the phone ships with? Pop one of these inside the microSD slot and you’re all set! If you don’t want your microSD card with Samsung written on it, get one that has SanDisk written on it instead ($150). You can buy less storage if you want to spend less money and don’t need the space, but the more storage you get, the better price you pay, so think about that.

5. USB C to Micro USB Adapter

Buy from Amazon ($6.99)

Got a bunch of old microUSB cables laying around? Great! Get this 4 pack of microUSB to USB C adapters and put them to use with your new Galaxy S8/S8+. We like these ones because they are metal and have keychains to prevent them from being lost easily.

You can also get this 2-pack from Anker if you aren’t a metal fan. Same price.

6. Samsung Gear IconX wireless earphones

Buy from Amazon ($150)

If you want a pair of advanced Bluetooth earphones to go with your Galaxy S8, the Gear IconX is a great choice. They have a built-in music player with 4GB of storage for phone-free listening, built-in activity and heart rate trackers, splash and sweat resistance. So tough, sporty, and with good sound quality – can’t go wrong here!

Alternatively (and cheaply), consider the Samsung Level U Pro headset ($60). It’s stylish, splash and sweat-resistant, and offers 9 hours of battery life. Users say sound quality is surprisingly good, too!

7. Anker PowerCore 10,000mAh powerbank

Buy from Amazon ($24)

We’ve been recommending this one a lot, because it’s a no-brainer! Anker is a reputable brand, the power bank is portable and compact, and it can charge your Galaxy S8 up to three times in a row. All that and more at an unbeatable price.

8. UE ROLL 2

Buy from Amazon ($78)

If you need a Bluetooth speaker to go with the GS8, consider this cutie. The UE Roll 2 had a price drop recently, making it an even more attractive deal! It’s loud, portable, waterproof, and lasts 9 hours of playback.

Don’t like it? Summer’s coming in a few months! Best check our line-up of the best waterproof Bluetooth speakers so you don’t buy something that fizzles out at the beach party!

9. Bestand-HO3 Wireless Charging Dock

Buy from Amazon ($37)

A wireless charging dock has to deliver the juice and look great on your desk. We think this one by Bestand and the new Galaxy S8 will go together like peanut butter and jelly! It’s entirely aluminum and fully Qi-compatible, so other phones can get to dock with it, too.

Alternatively, you can grab the one by Samsung ($70). Not the most stylish choice and overpriced for what it is, but the tech is good. It will charge your Galaxy S8 faster than other wireless chargers, because it complies to Samsung’s proprietary standard.

10. Samsung DeX – turn the Galaxy S8 into a PC and feel good about it

Buy from Samsung ($150)

Shipping early May, the DeX is a bespoke dock that lets your Galaxy S8 become a personal computer that seems surprisingly pleasant to use. Just place the phone into the dock, then connect it to your display and periphery. You’ll be able to open apps in separate windows and enjoy a proper desktop version of Android where mouse and keyboard control feels natural.
