Visit select Verizon Wireless stores to try out mobile virtual reality with the Samsung Gear VR

Ok, so you just got one of the latest smartphones by Samsung and you might be wondering, “well what else can or should I get for it?” Answer: accessories.

Accessories have become companion devices that are an extension of our smartphones. They really help get the most out of a smartphone with so many features like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, which are both now available online and in Verizon Wireless stores.

Samsung Gear VR

A mobile virtual reality is here. The Gear VR headset changes the smartphone experience you know today and puts you in virtual worlds, games, 360 degree videos and images. Watching a video or image in 360 degrees means looking up, down, left, right, behind you and seeing content in all directions.

Virtual reality is something one needs to experience firsthand to appreciate it. So why not try one out? Visit select Verizon Wireless stores to get a virtual reality demonstration. Take a selfie with it too. The Samsung Gear VR is now available and customers can take advantage of a limited time promotion to get theirs when purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge.

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand

Plugging in your phone to charge is so 2015. Wireless charging means just laying down your compatible phone on a wireless charging pad and that’s it.

You may have had wireless charging before and maybe even fast charging too, but the combination of the two was always missing, until now. This accessory fast charges your new phone with the convenience of just placing it on the stand.

The Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand is available for $69.99. A fast charging bundle (online only) is also available that includes the stand, a car charger with Fast Charging and a Samsung Fast Charging Portable Power Pack for $99.99

mophie® juice packs

Sometimes we need both protection and the power to recharge. The mophie® juice packs combines the two with a built in 3,300 mAh battery to give you more than 60% extra power. The juice pack is also wireless charging capable so you can conveniently charge it on virtually any wireless charging pad.

The mophie juice packs for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are available for pre-order for $99.99.

Samsung Gear S2

Smartwatches add the convenience of accessing important notifications on your wrist, even when you don’t have your phone nearby. The Gear S2 is designed with a circular interface and rotating bezel to easily navigate through notifications, apps, and widgets without having to cover the screen.

The Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic are both available with 3G connectivity or as Bluetooth-only models. The Gear S2 Classic is currently available for pre-order and will be available for purchase starting April 1.

Designer Cases & Case Loyalty Program

Some of us want our phones to be noticed when we take them out. We may even dress them up to match our sophisticated styles. Designer cases from Kate Spade New York can turn a few heads your way with unique prints and colors.

And if you’re a fan of having multiple cases, the Case Loyalty Program is ideal for you. The more cases you get, the more you save.

These are just a couple accessories available to complete your new smartphone, visit a store or accessories page to see the full lineup.
