These are the best accessories for the Galaxy Note 9

The Note 9 is already an amazing phone, but it can be even better with a few extra accessories! If you pre-ordered a Galaxy Note 9, you're probably getting pretty excited by now — it should be arriving in just a couple of days, after all! You're about to get right into one of the most powerful phones on the market, complete with its new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen and massive, beautiful display. Believe it or not, though, even a $1000 superphone can be further improved with a few choice accessories. Whitestone Dome Glass Spigen Rugged Armor Case iOttie iON Wireless Mini Fast Charger Aukey USB-C PD Car Charger Anker PowerCore 13000 C Battery Pack Samsung Galaxy Watch Bose QC35 II Noise-Canceling Headphones Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector Before you even think about taking your phone out of the box, you should have some kind of protection ready. For the screen, it's hard to argue with Whitestone's Dome Glass protector. It's one of the few that wraps around the Note 9's curved glass panel, and won't affect S Pen functionality. See at Amazon If you've ever shopped for glass screen protectors for a Samsung device before, you know how difficult it is to find one that adheres properly to a curved display. Whitestone's Dome Glass protector may be a bit pricey at $44.99 (or $59.99 for a two-pack), but it's worth it for that alone — and let's be honest, your $1000 phone deserves better than a cheap screen protector anyway. Spigen Rugged Armor Case There are a million different cases to choose from, but the Spigen Rugged Armor is a great option for most people in search of simple protection. It's light enough to keep the Note 9 slim while still protecting it from any serious drops — though the grippy backing should keep you from dropping it in the first place. Best of all, it's only $13. See at Amazon Spigen's Rugged Armor case offers a good level of protection without the bulk of, say, an Otterbox Defender. The carbon fiber stylings up top and bottom add a bit of aesthetic flair, and as an added bonus, the camera cutout makes it a bit easier to find that newly relocated fingerprint sensor. iOttie iON Wireless Mini Fast Charger Samsung may have its own line of wireless chargers, but they're not cheap, reaching all the way up to $120 with the new Wireless Charger Duo. Instead, iOttie's great-looking iON wireless charger outputs the same 7.5W current for a much more reasonable $27. See at Amazon Why spend more to charge at the same speed? The iON Wireless Mini Fast Charger has a nice fabric exterior that looks nice on a desk and keeps the back of your phone from getting scratched up. It also comes in a variety of colors, though anything but the charcoal finish will run you a bit more at $40. Aukey USB-C PD Car Charger You're going to want a car charger for those long road trips and times when you're just stuck sitting in traffic. Aukey's USB-C car charger features USB PD for a whopping 27W output, and has an extra USB-A port for charging a secondary device. See at Amazon It's hard to beat a car charger that powers your gadgets as quickly as a wall wart. For only $20, Aukey's USB-C PD car charger is the perfect way to charge your Note 9 on a long drive — along with your Nintendo Switch, tablet, or USB-C laptop. Anker PowerCore 13000 C Battery Pack If you tend to travel by plane or train more than by car, a battery bank might be a better way to keep your Note 9 fueled. For $38, the PowerCore 13000 C has over three times the capacity of the Note 9 itself, and recharges via USB-C. See at Amazon There are larger battery packs out there, including others in Anker's selection, but the PowerCore 13000 perfectly balances portability and high capacity. It doesn't support Qualcomm Quick Charge, but it still outputs 15W through Anker's own PowerIQ technology. Samsung Galaxy Watch The Galaxy Watch is perfect for managing notifications and tracking fitness, and its rotating bezel makes navigating through the Tizen interface a joy. It comes in two sizes, so you don't have to settle for a watch that's too big or too small. See at Samsung It may seem strange to call a $330 smartwatch an accessory, but … well, that's exactly what it is. Depending on where you stand, the lack of WearOS is either the best or worst part of the Galaxy Watch, but either way, it's hard to argue with its modern design and days-long battery life. Bose QC35 II Noise-Canceling Headphones Some airline employees may still be wary of the Galaxy Note name, but rest assured — you can definitely fly with the Note 9. Of course, the best way to fly is with noise-canceling headphones, and the Bose QC35s have consistently been some of the most well-received ANC headphones on the market. See at Amazon The QC35s offer the audio quality you'd expect from a well-known brand like Bose, along with active noise-canceling, long battery life, and a compact design that all amount to a great pair of headphones for any noisy situation. There are definitely cheaper headphones out there, but few rival the QC35s as a near-perfect travel companion.
