  • All seem to be very useful accessories. Awesome! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Really digging for the advertisement dollars here on this post huh? New page for each item, huge banner ad, etc etc
  • Go back to WebOS...oh wait... I guess you do not come here too often, they have been playing with the design of the pages lately and this format is on several articles.
  • Oh and it is not a new page for each item. It is one page.
  • WebOS? Also sure it's technically one page but you can see all the advertisements refresh, hence more $ in their pocket based on page views.
  • You have three comment posts, two are here. You have been a member forever and the only other thing on your profile is WebOS. Go back to it. As far as page views go, the same can be handled with a bit of AJAX/Java and a timer to rotate the ads on one page for the whole article. Get over the layout. Hit "view all" and your problems will be solved. Besides, would you rather them put up a paywall or have a premium section that costs? No I would think not.
  • Filler article, meh products.. I expect more..
  • Why are people upset? There aren't different ads for each page. Plus, you can view them all as one.
  • People just like to complain and troll. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yep! Posted via the Android Central App
  • With the exception of number 6 and 7, i find none of the rest "essential".
  • Number 7 will result in a broken phone with that thin case, even their tough armor is a joke.
  • That Verus Thor case looks to be a great choice. Not planning to pay extra for charging accessories, though, just because Samsung made it. Cheaper options elsewhere. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Wow those cases look so ugly on such a beautiful phone. Only people using cases should be the ones having that ugly Verizon logo.
  • $32 is just way, way too much for a charger! Posted via the Android Central App
  • #11: External micro-SD slot. Yes im going there.
  • $90 for a Qi car dock.. FYI There's this big chinese online shopping company called aliexpress, you can buy them for like $30.
  • I too loathe the click bait turn this site has taken with its articles. That opinion aside, it's not shocking that a site with a store will push products from their attached store. However you are able to find cases and accessories much cheaper if you spend some time and are patient. Spigen s6 cases on amazon have been as low as a dollar. Qc quick chargers, aukip brand, are as low as $15 with many below $20. In fact I just got one yesterday from power partners for 19.99 that even provides up to 30w for when tablets are compatible with this technology. All of these are ul listed and on the Qualcomm website to prove compatibility. I wouldn't recommend any that aren't listed there for safety. As far as external batteries, I'm waiting for when they make qc 2.0 compatible models. As far as wireless charging, those prices seem awfully high.
  • Hey Guys, Just now I found an amazing accessories for new Samsung Galaxy S6 at just $15. Check it out at
  • I have an S5 and I was at AT&T today looking at the S6 active. You cannot make changes to the battery saving mode like the S5.
