If you buy a new iPhone, there are accessories galore available from the first day of release. Many of those accessories are made based on the rumors of what the iPhone will be. Even now, case makers are making iPhone 8 cases based on rumors.
The Android ecosystem is not quite so lively, or insane. Vendors tend to wait until the product is out before committing resources to accessories. For one thing, they never know how any particular smartphone is going to do in the market.
The closest thing to iPhone fever in the Android ecosystem is the Galaxy S line of phones from Samsung. There are plenty of manufacturers willing to take an early flyer on whatever Samsung releases because there is an excellent chance it will do extremely well in the marketplace.
Now that Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are available in the majority of the markets, it’s time to accessorize the latest flagships. Here are some of the accessories that we feel will enhance your overall experience with either of the Galaxy S8 devices.
BodyGuardz Screen Protector
One of the must-haves for any smartphone. Regardless of how many gorillas were involved in the production of chic looking Galaxy S8 duo, glass breaks. This is why companies like BodyGuardz.com have devoted themselves to protect our most precious devices.

And due to its slipperiness, there is a good chance you are going to drop that thing on something hard and unforgiving.

Wireless Charger Convertible
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the few ones that support wireless charging and Samsung’s official wireless charger comes to the rescue. The new charger charges at the same speed as the previous fast wireless charger but allows keeping the phone on the pad horizontally or vertically with the stand.
DeX Station looks like a good attempt by Samsung to transform your smartphone into a full-fledged PC. Connect a monitor, keyboard and a mouse, and you’ve got a PC that can take calls or messages from your phone and even act as a productivity workhorse with support for Microsoft apps and lots more.
For all physical keyboard lovers, this is a must-have. Just snap the accessory on the front and start mashing on the keys without any fuss.
You know what you can’t do with an iPhone? VR, that’s what. Not only can you do it on a Galaxy S8, you can get a Gear VR, along with a controller, for free with the purchase of an S8 depending on where you get it. That’s how serious Samsung is about VR.
The fact that the S8 and S8+ are now available is only the beginning. With a good list of accessories that not only protects your phone but also scales the features of it makes them a good purchase.
