Congratulations on your new Samsung Galaxy S22! Your wondrous new flagship is powerful, pretty and…delicate. Sure, IP68 water resistance is excellent, but it’s still a slab of glass and aluminum wrapped around the fancy new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and those gorgeous cameras. You need to protect it with a beautiful Galaxy S22 case, but while you’re at it, there are a few key ways to enhance your Galaxy experience.

The new signature look:
Galaxy S22 Series Silicone Case with Strap

This strappy case looks like the one to beat for the Galaxy S22, as Samsung will be working with big brands like Disney to create fun interchangeable straps. The wrist strap is also functional and serves as a telephone socket.

Poetic Neon Galaxy S22 Plus Case Green

Solid, yet elegant:

This rugged case uses a flexible, shock-absorbing inner sleeve, while a hard outer shell provides a firm grip and stability. The S22 and S22+ have eight colors while the S22 Ultra has five, and the case is still thin enough for wireless charging.

2 Pack Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector for Galaxy S22

Better sealing:

While traditional adhesive-backed screen protectors work well with Samsung’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensors these days, Whitestone Dome Glass still offers a better seal and a cleaner look than the competition. This kit comes with two screen protectors and the necessary UV light to cure the liquid adhesive.

Baseus 65w 3 Port Foldable USB C Wall Charger Reco Png

Travel-ready top speed:
Baseus 65W 3-Port Foldable USB-C Wall Charger

While Samsung’s new 65W Trio adapter offers the same three ports (2 USB-C, 1 USB-A), this Baseus version offers better power distribution when multiple ports are in use. In addition, its teeth fold up and the price is much more manageable. A 100W cable is included in the box.

go long:
Uni Long USB Type-C 5A charging cord

You need a 5-amp USB-C cable with an e-mark chip to help you negotiate charge rates between charger and phone, but most are between 3 and 6.6 feet. Uni offers its 100W cable in 6.6ft, 10ft and 15ft lengths.

Volutz Usba C Reco

Best for Android Auto:
Volutz Equilibrium USB Type C Series (5-Pack)

I wish we only needed C-to-C cables, but most cars only have USB-A ports. If your car supports wireless Android Auto, I’m so jealous. For the rest of us, Volutz makes wonderfully durable USB-C cables in four lengths, so you can get a cable as long or short as you want, plus spares.

Galaxy Buds Pro Case Purple

Listen in style:
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

While you might be directed to the Galaxy Buds 2 when buying the Galaxy S22, the Buds Pro are more complete for almost the same price. Not to mention, they sound richer while offering fuller ANC and higher water resistance.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

Stay connected and healthy:

No one wants to miss calls or notifications while they put their phone down to cook, work or play with the kids. A connected watch can therefore be useful. The Galaxy Watch 4 also only unlocks its more advanced health tracking features (ECG and blood pressure monitoring) when paired with a Galaxy phone like the S22.

Samsung 15w wireless charger duo

For you and your smartwatch:
Samsung 15W Wireless Charger Duo

After years of the only 15W wireless charger for Galaxy phones being the 15W wireless charging pad, we now have two pad options to choose from. The Duo will allow you to charge both your Galaxy S22 and your Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Buds 2/Pro.

  • $70 at Samsung (with cable only)

  • $90 at Samsung (with wall adapter)

Cables and chargers and cases and more: Which Galaxy S22 accessories do you need?

Although I’d like to say that all of these accessories are essentials for your quickly expensive new Samsung Galaxy S22, and that’s okay if you prefer a more focused shopping list. Every time you buy a phone, it needs three things – well, two depending on your taste. You need a screen protector, a case and a phone grip. I know what you’re thinking, but no, really, you should use a phone jack, if only to save yourself from an RSI. (My left little finger will hate me forever, but yours doesn’t have to.)

You don’t even have to buy a separate phone grip to go with your Galaxy S22 Ultra case since the Samsung Silicone Case with Strap is a two-in-one. The strap is both a great way to show off style with spare straps you can buy and it’s an easy way to keep your S22 in your hand without having to constantly pinch your fingers around a PopSocket or through a metal ring. If you prefer boring, gripless cases, the Poetic Neon is durable, affordable, and the colors are great, especially if you choose one of the custom colors for your S22 Ultra or Plus. Whitestone Glass Dome UV cured screen protectors will not be easily pushed over the edges by cases like some normal adhesives can.

You might already have a great charger, but if you need one that can charge the S22+/Ultra at 45W, Baseus’ three-port port provides the 45W port. always gets 45W no matter what is plugged into the other two ports. This comes in handy if you’re trying to top up a mess of gadgets in a short time, say in a hotel room or airport lounge. The new 15W wireless chargers are also great to see, but if you’re only buying one new charger, get it wired; you’ll use it more now that everything from our laptops to headphones and everything in between is powered by USB-C Power Delivery.
