9 of the best Google Pixel accessories

Improve your Pixel with these smart add-ons

So, you've got yourself a shiny new Google Pixel. Lucky thing. But what will you pair it with?

See, you can't simply stroll around with your shiny new flagship bare and naked. Nor can you just leave it on the desk, free from docks and wires. It's smartphone law.

No, what you need to do - once you've finished caressing your Pixel - is peruse this list of the 9 best accessories money can buy, before picking which you'll buy to begin what will soon become a burgeoning collection of Google Pixel gear.

Spigen Back Cover (₹1,399)

Want a single layer protection with extreme style? The Rugged Armor is crafted with a sleek black TPU shell with textured carbon fiber accents. The newly designed Rugged Armor for Google Pixel comes especially with a circular opening for quick fingerprint scans. Also the Air Cushion Technology on all corners to assure shock-absorption in every impact.

The case is selling for ₹​499 on Flipkart at the time of writing.

MTT Tempered Glass Guard (₹899)

A 5in affair that offers 441 pixels per inch, the Pixel's screen is - appropriately - one of the flagship's standout features. The last thing you'll want, then, is a massive great crack in it because of an inebriated incident involving a kebab and the pavement.

Nor, though, will you want to smother the display in any bit of sticky plastic. The answer? Pick up this tempered glass protector for smear-resistant shatterproofing. The edges are curved for a more seamless fit, while application should be bubble-free, too.

Soundmagic E10C headphones (₹3,199)

If you've stumped up the readies for a 128GB Pixel, then you'll surely be filling it with a host of films and music. Thankfully, you'll also have a headphone jack through which to enjoy them.

Why not celebrate by treating yourself to the best rupee-for-rupee pair of 'phones out there? The SoundMagic E10C 'buds sound far better than they should for ₹ 3,199, with great depth and texture - and just enough subtlety that you'll need to spend a whole lot more to trump them. Get them in grey, though, or your Pixel might get jealous.

They're selling for ₹1,999 at the time of writing.

Google Daydream View Headset (₹6,499)

What better way to make the most of the Pixel's speedy internals than by dabbling in VR. Sure, you can buy a Cardboard headset - or even make your own - but do you really want to stick a ₹57,000 phone in a box made of glorified paper? Thought not.

Covered in soft fabric, the Daydream View is plush and comfortable on the inside - not to mention handsome. In fact, it's one of the nicest VR headsets out there, and it's a cinch to set up, too: once you’ve downloaded it from the Play Store, NFC tech inside the headset instantly activates the Daydream app on your phone.
