The best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are two of the most exciting smartphone releases from Google in years! We can understand your excitement if you’ve got your hands on one, but now it’s time to improve the experience with some of the best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories.
There are plenty of accessories you can get for the new Pixels. Some essentials, like a charger (since the phone doesn’t come with one in the box, except in France), and others, like smartwatches, are great phone companions to have.
The best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories
Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to update this list of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro accessories as new options continue to launch.
Google 30W USB-C charger
To take advantage of the Pixel 6 series’ fast charging capabilities, the official 30W USB-C charger from Google is the best way to go. The charger matches the required standard (USB PD 3.0 PPS) for its latest flagships, and you should be able to get a 50% charge in around 30 minutes.
It’s not that expensive either, priced at about the same as, if not cheaper than, what you’d spend on a third-party charger.
Google Pixel Buds A-series
Google’s Pixel Buds A-series true wireless earphones are among the best Pixel 6 accessories you can get. The A-series keeps the best features of the more expensive Pixel Buds, particularly regarding sound quality, and its relatively affordable price tag is a huge positive.
There are a few compromises, though. You don’t get noise cancellation and can’t wirelessly charge them. However, the big selling point here is the seamless integration with Android and access to all its features with a Pixel phone.
If you’ve got more cash to spare and want an upgrade, you should take a look at the Google Pixel Buds Pro. It comes with a more powerful chipset and active noise-cancelling.
Official Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro cases
Google doesn’t have as robust a case collection as OEMs like Samsung, but you can get a dual-layer case for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The translucent case is available in various colors and lets you show off the phone’s design. A raised lip keeps the display and rear camera bar safe. You also get covered buttons and precise cutouts for everything else.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
The rumored Google Pixel Watch will likely be the best smartwatch for Pixel devices. Until then, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are the smartwatches to get. The Watch 4 offers a sportier look and is the cheaper of the two. For a more elegant design and physical rotating bezel, you’ll want the Classic.
These watches aren’t perfect, and a few health features are available only if you have a Samsung smartphone. That said, the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 are still the best Wear OS watches you can get right now.
Google Pixel Stand (2nd Gen)
Google also released an updated Pixel Stand alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The new wireless charger offers fast wireless charging — 21W with the Pixel 6 and 23W with the Pixel 6 Pro. The charging speed significantly jumps from the first-gen Pixel Stand that maxed out at 10W.
It has a new unibody design and a cooling fan to keep the phone from overheating. There are also a host of exclusive features you can take advantage of, with Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners able to monitor Nest cameras, interact with Google Assistant visual spotlight, Photo Frame, Sunrise Alarm, and more.
More often than not, the display makes or breaks your smartphone experience. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro come with beautiful screens, and it would be horrible for them to get damaged or scratched in any way. A good screen protector can go a long way in ensuring that the display stays in pristine condition.
A tempered glass option is the way to go if you want to protect the screen from drops, while a TPU film is more than enough to keep scratches away. You can also get privacy screen guards to hide your display from prying eyes.
Samsung Super Fast 25W Portable Wireless Charger
There are plenty of great portable battery packs, but Samsung makes some of the best ones. These can be expensive, but the Samsung Super Fast 25W Portable Wireless Charger provides a great experience while keeping your devices juiced up.
The build quality and design are excellent, as it’s mostly made of metal and offers a streamlined design. It provides impressive 25W speeds, which is outstanding for a portable battery with a 10,000mAh capacity. We weren’t fans of the battery’s rates when charging multiple devices, but it can be pretty speedy when charging a single device at a time. And if you want, you can also use the Qi wireless charger, making it a very enticing Pixel 6 and 6 Pro accessory.
Belkin Universal Car Vent Mount
A good car phone mount is an excellent accessory for your new Pixel handset if you don’t have one yet. We like the Belkin Universal Car Vent Mount for its discrete look, simplicity, good quality, and accessible pricing. It’s a no-hassle car phone mount that attaches to your vents and keeps your phone in place while driving.
Razer Kishi V2 controller
You can’t go wrong with a suitable controller if you’re a gamer. Razer makes some of the best, and the Razer Kishi V2 offers a very convenient form factor. You can dock your phone into it and use it handheld, much like you would a Nintendo Switch.
The accessory connects over USB-C and is powered by your Android device. Aside from comfortable buttons and controls, you’ll get programmable buttons, dedicated screenshot/video controls, and a dedicated Razer Nexus app shortcut.
Joby GripTight One GorillaPod Stand
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are stunning camera phones, so it makes sense for you to want to use them for all your photo and video adventures. One of the best accessories for smartphone photography we can recommend is a small, portable, and flexible tripod.
The Joby GripTight One GorillaPod Stand checks all the boxes, and it’s a reasonably affordable option that offers good quality and functionality. You can even use it as a selfie stick. Alternatively, it can be a great video tool, or a stand to use with your phone when taking selfies or group shots.
