Today we’re going to be looking at five of the coolest Samsung Galaxy S4 accessories available. These go far beyond the normal ‘provide a bit of protection’ or ‘charge your phone’, instead drastically changing or adding to the functionality of your phone. Let’s get right into the selections for the Samsung Galaxy S4!
5. Genuine Samsung S View Cover and Screen Protector
It’s no accident that our first selection is the most normal – I promise it gets crazier from here on out! But the S View Cover is still a crazy case. The Galaxy S4 is built for it, with magnets in the case prompting the phone to show notifications and the time in the specially built window in the front of the case. The plastic allows you to touch the screen in this area too, so you can see who’s calling and answer the call without opening the cover. With this and the included screen protector, you’ll have impressive protection from chips and other damage without the spectre of a bulky case.
4. Genuine Samsung Extra Battery Kit
Here’s another dead useful addition: A replacement battery and battery charger for the Galaxy S4. The idea is that the Galaxy S4 is one of the few top-end phones on the market that has a removable rear cover, allowing access to the battery (as well as the SIM card and micro SD card slot). You can take advantage of this with the extra battery kit, allowing you to keep a spare battery charged so you can swap it in whenever the primary is running low, effectively doubling your battery life without the bulk of a permanently affixed battery case. Take that, HTC One, iPhone 5 and Lumia 928!
3. Roadwarrior Car Holder, Charger and FM Transmitter
This is another function-packed piece of kit, giving you everything you need to use your Galaxy S4 effectively in a car. There’s a car holder that keeps the Galaxy S4 easily visible, a car charger that makes sure it stays charged and even an FM transmitter that’ll bring your music and calls from the quiet internal speaker to your car’s stereo.
2. Genuine Samsung Smart Dock
This is definitely one of the most capable accessories on the list – and that’s saying something. With the Smart Dock, you’ll be able to connect pretty much anything that is even possible to be connected, all simultaneously. So it starts out like a normal dock – a combination charger and desk stand. But it also has a bevy of ports around the base of its cuboid chassis, offering the ability to plug in up to three USB devices (like mice, keyboards, gamepads and USB flash drives), one HDMI device (like an HDTV, monitor or projector) and a 3.5 mm stereo jack for speakers. And all of this while charging and syncing as normal, in a box that’s the same size as other docks.
1. Galaxy S4 Game Pad
Sadly, this Game Pad is the only one on the list that isn’t yet available – it’s only out in July. The idea is that you slip your Galaxy S4 between the Xbox 360-like controller and the clip at the top, allowing you to play games that support Android controllers, like racing games, shooters and emulators. This allows for a console-like experience on the go, using the heady power of the Galaxy S4 to great effect.
So that’s it – five truly awesome accessories for the Galaxy S4. I hope you found these selections helpful! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below!
