If you need a case that can take a beating, it doesn’t get much better than the Otterbox Symmetry.

Incipio NGP Pure
The NGP Pure is made from a polymer material that provides excellent shock absorption. It won’t stretch or fade over time like some TPU cases. This case looks like a typical TPU case, but when you feel it you can tell it’s different. For one, it’s thicker than normal TPU cases. It’s also slightly more rigid and resistant to scratches.

LG G6 Screen Protectors
Gorilla Glass 5 is the newest version of Corning’s tough glass, but the LG G6 is still using Gorilla Glass 3. It’s still resistant to scratches and cracks, but it’s certainly not as tough as it could be. Some people still like the peace of mind that comes with a 3rd-party screen protector. It’s much easier to replace a screen protector than to live with a scratched display.

- Spigen Tempered Glass
- ArmorSuit Military Shield
- Spigen TPU Film
- Supershieldz Clear Shield

Magnetic car mounts are the way to go if you want something super easy. Spigen’s mount comes with a thin metal case that sticks on the back of your phone and can be hidden under a case. The mount connects to the air vents in your car. Simply put your phone up against the mount and the magnet will hold it in place. [Buy from Amazon]
Headphones & Speakers
Anker SoundBuds Slim
One of the most important accessories for any phone is a good pair of headphones.

We’re big fans of UE’s wireless Bluetooth speakers. One of their latest models is the UE Roll 2, the successor to the ultra-popular UE Roll.
