Just pick up the Nokia 7.1? Awesome! It’s one heck of an Android phone that delivers a ton of value for $ 350, but just like any smartphone, you can make your experience with it even better by picking up a few accessories. Here are the best ones you can get.

Slim and protective

Dretal Nokia 7.1 Case

The Nokia 7.1’s glass back makes it a stunning piece of hardware, but one good drop could result in a shattered mess. Avoid this by picking up a case. There are plenty to choose from, but one of our favorites is this one from Dretal. It’s super affordable, has a durable TPU design, and doesn’t look half bad.

Stay away, scratches!

Orzero Tempered Glass Screen Protector

If you’re going to protect the back of your new Nokia 7.1, you might as well cover the front, too. Orzero’s tempered glass screen protectors are a good idea for any smartphone, and that holds true here. You get a pack of three for a little under $ 8 and Orzero’s lifetime replacement warranty to back the purchase up.

Never run out of storage

Samsung 128GB EVO Plus Micro SD Card

You get access to 64GB of storage out of the box with the Nokia 7.1, but with a Micro SD card, you can easily expand that quite a bit. Samsung’s 128GB EVO Plus card has more storage than you’ll likely ever need, fast data speeds, and is pretty affordable.

Spoil your ears

Just the basics

Panasonic ErgoFit Earbuds

If wireless headphones aren’t your jam and/or you want to spend a lot less money, Panasonic’s ErgoFit earbuds are one of your better options. They won’t knock your socks off, but they sound perfectly fine and work beautifully with the Nokia 7.1’s 3.5mm headphone jack. They also come in over a dozen colors!

Extra battery

Anker PowerCore 10000

You shouldn’t ever have any issues getting through a full day with the Nokia 7.1, but if you ever find yourself on a road trip or somewhere else without an outlet to top up, it’s a good idea to have a battery pack with you. This one from Anker has a 10,000 mAh unit and delivers fast charging speeds in a compact body.

Every phone is made better with the right accessories, and that fact holds true with the Nokia 7.1. At the very minimum, I recommend getting the Dretal case and Orzero screen protectors so you can ensure your phone will stay out of harm’s way. From there, the choice is up to you. I’d suggest trying out TaoTronic’s headphones, but you honestly can’t go wrong with anything on this list.
