From the first smartphone I owned, I’ve always been an Android user. Much to the chagrin of nearly all my friends and peers, I really do like the operating system and my Samsung phone. However, I do have to admit the world of tech accessories is made for iPhone users and the number and variety of options are tipped in their favor.
If you have an Android phone user in your life who you generally regard with suspicion and is already causing you a lot of stress in the gift-hunting search, fear not — and just be glad they don’t have a Windows phone. We’re here to help you find some cool Android accessories they’ll appreciate. Some are specially optimized for Android devices, while others are just great accessory gifts for all types of phones.
These 20 phone accessories and compatible gadgets prove gifting an Android user isn’t actually as difficult as you think.
A camera lens kit for enthusiastic phone photographers
Take breathtaking landscape photos and detailed close-ups with the 140-degree, wide-angle lens and the 10x macro lens in this kit. Simply clip it to your phone and align it with its camera to start snapping high-quality pictures.
A smart home assistant
Owners of Android devices like the Google Pixel will be happiest staying within the Google ecosystem and using the Google Home Mini smart home assistant, which helps you start your day, enjoy entertainment, and control other smart home devices.
A pretty floral phone case
Available for Samsung, Google, Sony, HTC, and LG devices
Phone cases often only satisfy two out of the following three criteria: durable, non-bulky, and beautiful. Casetify’s are all three and I never feel like I’m settling while shopping its site.
A tough phone storage box
This rugged case is basically like a tiny storage box, protecting not only your phone but also your keys, wallet, and other small essentials. It’s even waterproof up to 90 feet for 30 minutes, making it perfect for outdoor adventures.
A crossbody to hold just the essentials
Travel light with a stylish, full-grain pebbled leather bag that holds your phone with a little room to spare. Choose from more than 10 different leather colors and add a monogram for just $10.
A PopSockets phone grip and stand
iPhone and Android users can at least agree on one thing: PopSockets are great. Other than their smart and useful design, they’re worthy gifts because there’s a different style for every personality.
A car charger
Anyone who’s spending a lot of time in their car, whether stuck in a daily commute or taking a cross-country road trip, might as well be productive during that time by keeping a car charger on hand. By the time you get to your destination, your phone will be up and ready again.
