Best Accessories for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Believe it or not, even a $1,000 superphone (or less nowadays, since it's been out for a while now) can be improved with a few choice accessories. It never hurts to give it some protection with a case and screen protector, and there are all kinds of useful peripherals like wireless chargers and headphones that improve the already stellar experience of using the Galaxy Note 9 (opens in new tab).

Choosing the right case

There are seemingly endless great cases to choose from, especially with a popular phone like the Galaxy Note 9. Spigen makes some of our favorites; the Rugged Armor (opens in new tab) perfectly blends style, slim design, and protection for a case that meets most people's needs, while the Liquid Crystal (opens in new tab) lets you show off the beautiful glass backing of your Note 9 without leaving it completely exposed.

If you really need the most protective case around, though, the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro (opens in new tab) is a great choice. It's bulky, but that extra thickness makes it impervious to just about any drops and keeps dust out of the phone, too.

Further accessorizing your Note 9

Cases are great, but they're not all you can add to your Note 9. A screen protector goes a long way to further protecting your screen from scratching or even shattering in the event of a drop, which is exactly why we recommend Whitestone's Dome Glass (opens in new tab). It uses UV light to adhere perfectly to the Note 9's display, curves and all.

It also never hurts to have more ways of keeping your phone charged, like Samsung's convertible wireless charger (opens in new tab) or the Aukey's 10,000mAh battery bank (opens in new tab). If you end up grabbing the Galaxy Watch (opens in new tab) or some other smartwatch, though, you might be better suited with the Wireless Charger Duo (opens in new tab) instead.

For audio, Sony's 1000XM3s (opens in new tab) and Samsung's Galaxy Buds (opens in new tab) are among the best wireless headphones in their respective classes, but they're also both pricey. If you're on a tighter budget, the OnePlus Bullets (opens in new tab) or the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT (opens in new tab) are also great options.
