The Samsung Galaxy S20 series is bound to be the most popular line of smartphones in 2020, and while they are already pretty powerful, there are a few accessories you’ll want to buy to get the most out of it. Whether that’s a new smartwatch, battery pack, car mount or even a screen protector. We have it all here for you. These will all make your Samsung Galaxy S20 experience even better.
Top 10 Best Samsung Galaxy S20 Accessories – February 2020
The accessories on this list will work for all three Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones (Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra). So no matter which version you decide to pick up, you’re going to be covered. We won’t be listing cases in this top 10, since we already have a separate post on that.
This list includes some generic products like battery packs, smartwatches, PopSockets and such, so they can also be used with other smartphones, if you wish to do so. And that includes the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Best Screen Protector
Starred Screen Protector
This screen protector for the Galaxy S20 is available for all three models, and also comes in a three pack. So once it starts to get a bit disgusting, you can remove it and apply a new one to your smartphone.
It’s a TPU screen protector, so it’s made of plastic. And definitely not a tempered glass screen protector. Which would also cost a whole lot more. It does have a hole in the screen protector for using the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that is built into the display. Which is unfortunate, as it does make it a bit ugly, but at least you can still use it.
The PopGrip from PopSockets is a really good accessory for really any phone. And the reason why this is the best PopSocket you can buy right now is because it does allow you to swap out the top. So if you want to change the color, you can do so.
PopGrip is really great because it allows you to hold onto your phone much easier, especially these larger phones like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. But it also doubles as a sort of kickstand for your smartphone. Allowing you to use it on long flights to watch a movie or two, without having to hold your phone the whole time. It’s a really genius invention, and it’s something that everyone should have.
You can attach the PopGrip to your case, so that it doesn’t ruin your phone too.
Best Battery Pack
Samsung 25W Portable Battery
Normally on these lists, we would list an Anker, AUKEY or even a RAVPower battery pack, as those are really great options and usually much cheaper. But for the Galaxy S20, we opted to list the Samsung 25W Portable Battery because of one big reason, and it’s in the name. It is a 25W portable battery pack. And since Samsung is using USB-C PD and another technology that most battery packs aren’t using yet, this seemed like the best option.
At 25W, it is going to charge your Galaxy S20 just as fast as the wall charger that comes in the box. And with 10,000mAh capacity, you’ll get one, maybe two charges out of it. This depends on how depleted the Galaxy S20 is when you charge it. Remember the Galaxy S20 has a 4000mAh capacity battery (4500mAh on the S20+ and 5000mAh on the S20 Ultra).
It’s also fairly thin, so it can fit in your pocket without any real issues. At this time, we don’t have a price for the Samsung 25W Portable Battery, as it has not yet been made available for purchase. So keep that in mind.
Best Fast Wall Charger
Samsung 45W USB-C Fast Charging Wall Charger
This accessory is more for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as the other two Galaxy S20 models cannot charge at 45W, and instead are limited to 25W. So keep that in mind here.
But this 45W USB-C wall charger is perfect for those that want to charge their Galaxy S20 Ultra in a hurry. You’ll be able to fully charge that 5,000mAh capacity battery in just under an hour (58 minutes to be exact), and thats from zero to 100%. That is pretty impressive, and if you’re one that is always in a hurry, this charger is going to be a really good option.
Now if you’re not, the 25W charger that comes in the box with the Galaxy S20 Ultra is still going to be perfectly fine for charging pretty quickly. It’ll still charge completely in under two hours. Which is plenty fast for most people.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is the best smartwatch to go with your shiny new Galaxy S20. For one, it’s also made by Samsung, so you know you’re going to get the best experience on a Samsung smartphone. And two, it’s the best Android-compatible smartwatch on the market today.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 comes with multi-day battery life. It’s also pretty thin and lightweight, so it doesn’t look chonky on your wrist. On top of that, it runs on Tizen, so you are able to use some of your favorite apps, but most of all, it runs smoothly.
There aren’t a ton of apps available for the Galaxy Watch Active 2, but the ones you need, are available. Like Uber, Samsung Health and many more. This smartwatch is more about tracking your health and fitness, instead of allowing you to use your smartwatch like you would your smartphone. Though there are still notifications on your wrist.
Best Micro SD Card
SanDisk Extreme 512GB
With the Galaxy S20 still offering a micro SD card slot on all three models, you’re definitely going to want to get one. Now there is 128GB of storage available internally, but with the Galaxy S20 being able to shoot 8K video on all three models, a micro SD card is a must.
We chose this particular micro SD card because of the speed. It’s fast enough to be able to write 8K footage to the card in almost real-time. That way you aren’t needing to wait to record some more footage. That can be an issue with slower micro SD cards.
Also, you’re getting 512GB of storage with this micro SD card. Which is going to be plenty of space for storing plenty of 8K videos, and even 4K video as well as pictures. You can also store your music library offline on this micro SD card, if needed.
Best Car Mount
iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Dash & Windshield
Don’t be fooled by the fact that this car mount has an iPhone in the picture. It still made our Best Galaxy S20 Accessories list for a good reason. And one of those reasons is because it works with any smartphone. But it also doesn’t use magnets to hold your phone in place. And for something like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra that is fairly heavy, that’s a really good thing.
The iOttie Easy One Touch 4 car mount uses adjustable arms to keep your phone in place. It also attaches to either the dashboard or the windshield, so you can use it for navigation and for streaming music. You can turn it so that it is in landscape as well.
The arm is also adjustable, so you can adjust how long it is and how close to the dashboard it is. Which is also pretty important.
Best Car Charger
Samsung 45W Dual Port Car Charger
This car charger is the only one you should buy for the Galaxy S20 series, especially if you are buying the Galaxy S20 Ultra. And that’s because it can charge your phone at the full 45W that the Galaxy S20 Ultra can handle. Meaning that on a short trip home from work, your Galaxy S20 Ultra is going to be almost completely charged.
Now, if you have a Galaxy S20 or S20+ that doesn’t do the full 45W, don’t worry. This is backwards compatible and can do 25W too. It can also do slower with the USB-A port which does 15W. If you happen to have another, older device you want to charge in the car.
This is a really great car charger to pick up, since it is also a dual-port car charger.
Best Wireless Headphones
Samsung Galaxy Buds+
The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are a really great pair of wireless headphones and these are now truly wireless. Samsung took the original Galaxy Buds and improved on them in key areas, including battery life. So now you are getting 11 hours of continuous playback on the Galaxy Buds+, and there is another 11 hours in the included carrying case.
On top of that, it improved ambient sound and they now have noise isolation. It’s not quite noise cancellation, but fairly close. And you can still hear people talking to you, or trying to get your attention, when wearing the Galaxy Buds+, which is definitely important.
These come in three colors: white, cosmic black, and cloud blue.
Best Wireless Charger
Samsung Wireless Charger Stand 15W
Rounding out our list of the best Galaxy S20 accessories, is this fast wireless charging stand. This model is able to output 15W, for wireless charging. That’s still much slower than wired charging, especially on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but still plenty fast.
At 15W, you should be able to quickly set down your Galaxy S20 and have it quickly charge or top off your smartphone. It’s a charging stand, so you can also use it next to your bed on a bedside table without any issues. Which makes for a really great experience.
Samsung is selling this Wireless Charger Stand in two colors: black and white. So depending on the color of the table you have and want to put it on, you can get one to match.
