Samsung Gear VR
If you want to immerse yourself in the world of virtual reality, you should definitely consider getting a Gear VR headset as one of your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 accessories.

Samsung DeX station
Samsung DeX is basically a docking accessory that you can use to convert the Galaxy Note 8 into a desktop computer — in a way. Just insert the device into the DeX station and connect it to a monitor, which then allows you to interact with the phablet via the big screen with the help of a mouse and keyboard.
You can open and use the apps installed on your device, view images you have taken, and more or less do everything else you can do with your Note 8. The device made its debut back in March and is also compatible with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
It’s far from perfect, but it does get the job done. To learn more about it, check out our Samsung DeX review. In terms of pricing, the device will currently set you back $122.49 if you get it from Samsung.
Samsung Evo Plus 128 GB microSD card
If you’re a heavy user with loads of apps, images, music, and videos on your device, you might want to consider getting a microSD card to expand the storage of your Galaxy Note 8. You can get a 128 GB Samsung Evo Plus memory card for your phablet on Amazon, which will set you back $61.52.
It has a read speed of up to 80 MB per second and comes with an SD adapter as well as a USB card reader, which you can use to quickly transfer data from the card to a computer. The microSD card has a great review score on Amazon (4.7) and will make sure you won’t have to delete any of the images and videos from your device just to make room for new ones.
