Today we’re going to highlight some of the very best accessories available for the Samsung Galaxy S3. If you’re ready, move your eyes onto the next line and let’s begin!
5. Mugen Extended Battery – 2300mAh
If you’re looking for an easy way to replace your worn out battery or double your battery life, then a Mugen Extended Battery may be just what you need. The battery is exactly the same physical size as the original, but packs in an extra 200mAh of charge and is cheaper as well. For more Galaxy S3 batteries, check out our recent blog post on the subject!
4. a-Jays One+ Earphones
The headphones that come with the Galaxy S3 aren’t brilliant – they block out noise, but the sound reproduction is pretty mediocre. If you listen to music on your phone, then it makes sense to upgrade to some proper headphones. These ones from a-Jays are some of the most popular. They sound great thanks to 8.6mm dynamic drivers, and are well backed with a tangle-free flat cable and a helpful Android app.
3. Samsung 64GB UHS-1 Grade 1 MicroSDXC Pro – Class 10
The Galaxy S3 retains the microSD card slot of its predecessor, and newly supports 64 GB cards. Take full advantage by picking up a 64GB card; this one from Samsung fits well and boasts the fastest possible speed rating too.
2. Qi Internal Wireless Charging Adapter
We’ve already seen how the Galaxy S3′s back cover lets it take microSD cards and replacement batteries – now here’s something even more useful. This wireless charging adapter fits into the back of the phone, below the back cover, and will give the phone full wireless charging capabilities. Just pick up this and a Qi wireless charger and you’re good to go.
1. OtterBox Commuter Series
The OtterBox Commuter is one of the most popular cases for any phone, and for good reason – the case design includes good protection, minimal bulk and a simply stylish look. The Commuter’s two layer construction allows it to resist both scratches and knocks, although thicker cases can provide better protection against bigger impacts. For the money, the Commuter is a brilliant case.

In this article, we’ll recommend five of the best Samsung Galaxy S2 accessories on the market. Let’s take a look!
A microSD card is always recommended for phones with a card slot, and that’s no different for the Galaxy S2. This card comes from Samsung themselves, and is the cheapest and easiest way of adding storage to your phone. The 32 GB capacity doubles the phone’s internal storage, and class 6 access speeds ensure that you can load apps from the card on top of music, pictures and movies.
This car pack includes two essential components: a car charger and a car holder. The car holder is a case-compatible unit, meaning it can be used with all but the very bulkiest Galaxy S2 cases with ease. The car charger provides enough power to keep your phone charged while you’re using it for GPS navigation or other in-car tasks.
This official screen protector double pack ensures that your phone’s screen remains clear from scratches and other damage. The pack comes direct from Samsung, so you’ll find the fit just perfect.
This extended battery for the Galaxy S2 is a big improvement over the default battery, fitting 2,000mAh of charge into the same space as the original’s 1650mAh. This means you get slightly longer battery life, and if you retain the original battery you’ll be able to swap batteries whenever you run low. A great accessory to get the most out of your Galaxy S2. For more battery and charging options, check out our recent blog on the subject!
Our winning accessory this time is this genuine Samsung Mesh Vent Case. The case looks great, particularly in red, and adds a grippy texture to the phone. The vented design is built to ensure that the phone doesn’t overheat, too. Of course, cutouts exist throughout for the buttons, ports and camera. A great looking case for a great looking phone.
Thanks for checking out the article and stay tuned for more accessory recommendations for the whole lineup of Samsung Galaxy S phones!

Today we’re going to have a look at some of the best replacement batteries and other charging solutions for the Galaxy S3 Mini, all designed to extend your battery life. Let’s take a look.
1. Official Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Battery
The official battery for the Galaxy S3 Mini is the ideal choice to replace your worn battery or to pick up a spare, granting you improved battery life and a longer-lasting phone. The official battery has a capacity of 1500mAh, precisely the same as the battery that came in the box originally. The battery is cheap too, at less than £20, ensuring you’re able to pick up even a couple of spare batteries.
2. Power Jacket for Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
Our second option is the Power Jacket, a battery case for the Galaxy S3 Mini. This case adds a mighty 2000 mAh to the phone’s power reserves, taking the combined total to 3500mAh. That means you’ll get more than double the battery life on your phone, whether you’re talking on the phone, watching videos or surfing the web. The Power Jacket does add some bulk to your phone, but it also adds a good amount of protection against scratches and knocks. A built-in kickstand is also included, which is perfect for watching videos and spending that battery life well!
3. Power Bank Portable Charger for MicroUSB
The final battery idea for the Galaxy S3 Mini is a portable charger. The Power Bank is one such portable charger, offering a convenient 2600mAh of battery power whenever you need it most. That’s enough to get between two and three times the battery life of your phone, whilst keeping your phone slim and pocketable while it’s not charging.

In this article, we’ll recommend batteries and charging accessories for the Samsung Galaxy S4 – ideal for replacing older batteries and extending your battery life. Let’s get right into the selections!
1. Official Samsung Galaxy S4 Standard Battery (2600mAh)
If your original Galaxy S4 battery is getting a bit long in the tooth, then a fresh battery can be a great choice to extend your battery life. This particular battery comes directly from Samsung, and is made to the same specifications as the battery that came in the box. That includes a capacity of 2600 mAh.
2. Mugen Samsung Galaxy S4 Extended Battery (2750mAh)
This extended battery packs more charge into the same space as the original battery, granting you an extra 150 mAh of battery power. The Mugen battery is guaranteed for a year and fits with the original Samsung Galaxy S4 cover, making it easy to install.
3. Mugen Samsung Extended Battery Pack (5500mAh)
Our next battery adds a massive amount of power to your phone, more than doubling its original battery size. That means your battery life will more than double, at the cost of a little added thickness and a new battery cover.
4. Genuine Samsung Galaxy S4 Extra Battery Kit
If you’re planning to pick up a spare battery for your S4, then this extra battery kit might be just what you need. The kit includes a genuine Galaxy S4 battery (like item #1) and a special battery charger, which allows you to charge your spare battery without needing it to be inside your phone. That means you can put your phone and your spare battery on to charge overnight, so in the morning you’ll have both fully charged and ready to go.
5. Veho Aryton Senna Pebble Smartstick+ Portable Charger (3000mAh)
Want loads more battery life without adding a bulky case to your phone? This portable charger is ideal, allowing you to recharge up to 3000mAh in a small and easy-to-carry form factor. Keep it in your car or in your bag, and you’ll have that extra power on tap whenever you need it.

Today we’re unveiling a new case for the Samsung Galaxy S5. It’s from Moshi and it’s called the SenseCover. Like Samsung’s own brand of S View cases, the SenseCover has a transparent-windowed flip cover, allowing you to see incoming notifications while keeping your screen fully protected from scratches. Let’s take a closer look.
The cut-out window on the flip cover is a large square, allowing you to easily see the time, date and incoming calls – all at a glance. The plastic is touch-sensitive too, so you’re still able to swipe to accept or reject calls (and dismiss alarms) without opening the cover. The Galaxy S5′s AMOLED display remains turned off beyond the window, so less power is used than when the entire screen is on.
Full screen protection without adding bulk
The SenseCover provides protection for the front, back and sides of the Galaxy S5. The cover clips to the back of the phone, minimising the case’s footprint and ensuring excellent pocketability is retained. A magnetic clasp keeps the cover in position, ensuring that your screen remains protected at all times.
The Moshi SenseCover is made from high quality synthetic materials, allowing to stand up to day-to-day use without issues. The Galaxy S5 cover is available in two colours as well; black and pink. Both options are coming soon to Mobile Fun.
