If you get only one accessory for your Samsung smartphone, it should probably be a protective case. Seriously, those glass phones break like nobody’s business. If you get only two accessories though, the second one should definitely be the Samsung DeX Pad. This hot new device enables the Samsung Desktop Experience on your Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S9+ smartphone. Lie the phone flat on the DeX Pad and it becomes a trackpad. Then connect a monitor and a keyboard and your smartphone is instantly transformed into a full-fledged desktop PC. It’s on sale right now on Amazon for only $70 — its lowest price ever — so you’d seriously have to be crazy not to buy it.
