The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on its own is no slouch, but as we prepare for its local launch, here are some accessories that will make your experience with it even better.
Samsung DeX station
The South Korean giant introduced this with its Galaxy S8 series of smartphones earlier this year. And with the Galaxy Note 8, it is set to make a return.
Samsung’s vision is to make your smartphone the core piece for any computing work. And with this station, it achieved exactly that.
By connecting your Note 8, you can transform it into a full-fledged desktop PC with the help of just a monitor, keyboard and a mouse. The large screen makes multitasking easier and the station also adds an ethernet and two USB-A ports.
While you cannot rely on this for heavier applications, the puck-sized device helps with document editing and emails at a price far lower than your typical Chromebook.
Note8 Edition Gear VR with controller
Thanks to its Gear VR, Samsung has been at the forefront when it comes to affordable VR technology in the past few years. In 2017, the company brings more of the same.
The new Gear VR not only offers a lightweight and comfortable design but with a clean user interface. The controller and voice commands the headset supports also makes the user experience smoother than its competitors.
And with the 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD screen on the Note 8, VR footage will look sharper and immersive.
Samsung wireless charger convertible
An underrated feature so far in this region, wireless charging is a convenient way to power up your phone. Samsung’s own take on the technology allows you to fast charge Galaxy devices including the Note 8.
But rather than the conventional flat charger, this one is different. For added convenience, the charger doubles as a stand. This means that while you might be busy watching a movie on your Note 8, the phone always remains juiced up in the background ― without the hassle of tangled wires.
Samsung Gear 360
The dual 12MP camera on the Galaxy Note 8 always gets us excited. But to capture 360-degree content, you cannot go wrong with Samsung’s Gear 360.
It is easy to use and offers an immersive experience that could impress many of your colleagues. For the most part, it is comfortable to hold and even works without a smartphone attached.
Be it for vlogging your experience or taking pictures, the value for money you will get with this one is unmatched.
Samsung Clear View Standing cover
For those who like added protection, this case is a must-have. Its priority is to protect the Galaxy Note 8 without taking away from the infinity display on its front.
Offering military grade protection in MIL-STD-810G-516.7, it evens doubles its function with a kickstand for viewing content. If there’s too much pressure applied to the phone when placed, the kickstand pops out to avoid breakage.
