The Gear VR is one of the most popular virtual reality headsets in the world and will set you back $129.99.

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.

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.

Samsung Fast Charge wireless charging stand

Samsung’s own wireless charging stand supports all of the phones that use the Qi standard. Like the Choetech stand, Samsung’s product also supports the Fast Charge feature for its own Qi phones, but it can also charge up any of the other Qi-based smartphones at standard speeds. It also includes a wall charger, unlike the Choetech stand.
However, the Samsung wireless charging stand is a bit more expensive than the Choetech product. Amazon is selling the black version at $31.49, and other versions like silver, gold, and white are even pricier. It’s up to you to see if you want to get the brand name at a higher price, but it may be worth it if you own a Samsung Qi-based phone.

Samsung Fast Charge wireless charging convertible stand

The big difference between this product and the standard Samsung wireless charging stand that we mentioned earlier is that this product can actually switch from a stand to a flat pad position. This allow owners to just place their Samsung Qi-based phone, or any Qi product, flat to begin charging, just in case they don’t want or need to stand the phone up. Like the other Samsung wireless charging products, this one also comes with Fast Charge support and a wall adapter. The convertible stand is also covered in a leather-like material, which is supposed to make it blend in better in a home environment.
However, the Samsung wireless charging convertible stand is also even more expensive than the standard stand. Amazon currently offers it for $49.99. If you want those extra features, you’ll feel them on the price tag.

Lohasic wireless charging pad

The Galaxy Note 8 supports wireless charging. That’s a popular feature, but you’ll need to get a wireless charging pad to take advantage of it. There are a number of options available, but we recommend that you check out this one from Lohasic.

It allows you to position your Note 8 vertically or horizontally, which comes in handy when you want to watch videos while the device is charging. It has a built-in cooling fan that will prevent the device from getting too hot during the charging process, and has a bunch of safety features on board to keep you and your expensive phablet safe.

Lohasic’s wireless charging pad comes with a 12-month warranty and currently retails for $25.99 on Amazon.
