1) Official Samsung Standing Cover
Our first item on this list is a no-brainer. With its large size, the Tab S8 Ultra is perfect for productivity and entertainment, although holding that large display all the time will certainly get tiring at some point. This is where Samsung’s Official standing cover comes in. The cover comes with a stand to let you prop up your tablet, and the stand itself has a similar design to the one found on the Microsoft Surface devices and the Nintendo Switch OLED, meaning that it’s a wide panel that can fold in and out of the case to let you watch videos, video-call with people, and any other tasks of the same nature.
There’s also a slot for the S-Pen, so you can securely place your stylus without losing it whenever it’s not needed. The stand is a bit pricey though, but the quality of protection and functionality that it adds is pretty impressive.
2) Spigen EZ Fit Screen Protector
The wide AMOLED display on the Tab S8 Ultra certainly beckons to be tapped, poked, swiped, and even drawn on. As such, it only makes sense to get some extra protection for that wide display, in which case Spigen’s EZ Fit Glass screen protector comes in handy.
The screen protector is made out of tempered glass instead of the flimsy and scratch-prone film material on a majority of screen protectors that are out on the market right now. It’s cut to fit perfectly on the tablet’s enormous screen, and will serve as a great way to protect the display from the hundreds to thousands of touch actions that are bound to take place on your tablet.
3) Anker USB-C Fast Charger
Anker is well-known for making quality accessories and gear for tech and smartphones, and their 25W wall-charger is a perfect match for the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s massive 11,000 mAh battery. Since Samsung has seen fit to deprive us of boxed-in wall chargers, it makes perfect sense to get one if you don’t already have a USB-C compatible charging brick.
The charger comes with Anker’s MultiProtect system which features over-voltage protection, temperature regulation and all the good stuff needed to keep your tablet safe and sound when charging. It’s also compatible with several other Samsung devices, making it a versatile tool to have in your Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra starter pack.
4) SanDisk MicroSD Card
One of the best features of the Tab S8 Ultra is that it comes with a microSD card slot, something that’s been sorely missed on a lot of modern smartphones. As such, while the tablet comes in 128 up to 512 GB storage variants, you might still want to add some extra storage for your device – “the more, the merrier,” after all.
Of course, Sandisk’s MicroSD card comes in several storage variants as well, and they come with 160MB/s and 90MB/s read and write speeds, respectively. If you tend to store a lot of onboard media like photos, music and videos, then this will definitely come in handy, especially if you swap your memory card between devices.
5) SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive Go
If having an extra 128GB of storage isn’t still enough for you, then Sandisk luckily offers another storage solution in the form of the Sandisk Ultra Dual Drive Go. Simply put, it’s a removable USB flash drive for your Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, and it’s USB-C compatible meaning that it’s a simple plug-and-play affair once you use it for your tablet.
In addition to the USB-C connector, it’s also reversible so there’s extra room for a traditional USB-A connector, in case you want to use the drive for a laptop or other device that features older USB connection ports. It’s a very simple solution for file transfer problems, and likewise adds to the charm of using your Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as a full-fledged portable computer.
