With three new phones from Samsung, we’re rounding up the best ways to accessorize your Galaxy S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra. This way you can keep your new phone protected in style and also keep the battery filled up — especially when you recall that a wall charger isn’t being included in the box. And alongside power peripherals we also have cases and screen protectors from brands we’ve tested.
Looking for an accessory to pair with the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra? Since it’s the only one of the bunch that supports the S Pen, it’s a great addition if you plan to take notes or even draw with your new smartphone. Samsung is selling a standard S Pen for $39.99.
