5) Official Samsung Extra Battery Kit

This is perfect for when you’re at a festival, and therefore unable to charge your phone. You’ll be able to go from 0 to 100% just by changing over the extra battery you’re carrying around with you – something that iPhone users are unable to do!

For the runners among us, this armband is so handy. Holding your phone and running in order to listen to music just isn’t cute. Plus, there’s every chance your phone will shoot out your hand and smash.
