The Android faithful are a passionate bunch, flying the green Google flag in the long war against iOS with dedication.
It's exhausting work calling Apple names at every iLaunch, so to reward them for their efforts in battle, we've rounded up a few presents that'll warm their cockles come Christmas day. If they have a Samsung Galaxy S4, Google Nexus 5, LG G2, HTC One, Google Nexus 7 or similar, they'll be made up with these.
Klipsch S4A II (S$169)
These made-for-Android earbuds feature an in-line remote and mic which can be customised with a free Klipsch Control app from the Play Store. Its oval tips ensure a deep, snug fit which’ll block out pesky commuter noise and the sound quality is just what you’d expect from Klipsch, with dynamic detail and punchy ear-shaking bass.

SteelSeries gaming controller (S$135)
Don’t let the size of this tiny controller put you off. With dual shoulder buttons and two analogue sticks, it offers much more precision than on-screen controls meaning more first place finishes and less fender benders. Ten hours of non-stop play means it’ll keep on going long after you’ve fallen asleep during a marathon mobile gaming session too.
