Android as an ecosystem is lacking any one de facto wearable accessory. Whereas iOS users enjoy exclusive access to the best smartwatch you can buy, we Android loyalists have to do a little research to choose from a staggering number of smartwatches and fitness trackers (and yes, iPhone owners can use these devices, too — but there's not much reason for them to).
But we here at Android Police have done the legwork for you! Here, for your convenience, is a selection of the very best wearables you can get for your Android phone.
Even though our phones' internal storage capacity is increasing, so are file sizes. This is why we may sometimes need a little extra space, and MicroSD cards are a convenient way of achieving this. In case you're looking for one, SanDisk's 200GB A1-rated Ultra card is down to $22.49 on Amazon, which is the lowest price it's ever been.
If you've ever rooted your Android phone to modify system components, chances are, you've come across Magisk, which allows for systemless root access. Developer John Wu has constantly updated it to ensure it works just as well and goes undetected by Google's SafetyNet. The tool is now being updated to version 22.0, which introduces support for the Samsung Galaxy S21 series and kills the Magisk Manager as we know it.
Realme is one of the fastest-growing smartphone companies in the world, and there's more to its success than just attractively-priced hardware. The other side of the coin is software, and Realme phones have a lot to offer in this department too, with plenty of useful features and impressive customization options.
If you're on the market for a smart display, Amazon's latest Echo Show is currently marked down, selling for $210, which is $40 less than its traditional price. It's a great option to place calls, listen to music, watch content, and even have a handy helper in the kitchen while cooking.
Android's open-source nature makes it difficult for phones from different OEMs to play well with each other unless Google steps in and makes changes to Android or GMS (Google Mobile Services). This is exactly what happened in the case of Nearby Share, which allows easier sharing of files between different Android devices. While we wouldn't go as far as to say it works just as well Apple's AirDrop, Nearby Share v2.0 is getting a bunch of improvements that could help close the gap.
4K televisions are everywhere these days, and if you're aiming to get the best looking screen that's also super high-res, OLED is where it's at. An OLED TV offer improved viewing angles and unbeatable black levels over standard LCD sets thanks to its lack of backlight. Although OLED TVs are still priced higher than their standard counterparts, prices have continued to grow more affordable throughout the last year. Sony's 65-inch A8H is one of the best OLED televisions you can buy today, and it's finally broken under the $2,000 price point for the first time since Black Friday.
Sony's WH-1000XM4 are, in the opinion of a sizable portion of techy people, the very best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. They took everything good about the prior generation — namely, great ANC and sound quality — and built on it with enhanced performance and additional features. Right now, you can snag a pair over at Adorama for $70 below their MSRP, and get a free power bank to boot.
Robot vacuums are one of the better things to come out of this era of technological innovation, but robot mops are some next-level business. This Eufy unit will both vacuum your carpets and mop your hardwood, and it's all the way down to just $320 today.
Big-brand video doorbells can be super pricey; Google's Nest Hello, for example, retails for $229. But there are more affordable options, like this here Eufy number. It's $120 today at Best Buy, a full $50 less than usual.
