The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 (review) is the best Android tablet of the year right now. And while the hardware is super-fast and great, it is quite expensive, and you might want to protect it with a case or sleeve. To get everything you want out of your tablet, you also might want to get some other accessories.
Well, these are the accessories I can recommend for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.
By the way, I bought all of these accessories myself and have been using most for over a year. So, I didn’t get any of them for free and I don’t like to spend money, so most are quite affordable. You can find links to each of them in the description below.
ELTD Case For Galaxy Tab S6
Now, there is an official Book Cover from Samsung for the Galaxy Tab S6 and that one looks great. However, it’s quite expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much, so I got the super cheap ELTD Case for the Galaxy Tab S6. But even though it costs under 15 Dollars, it does its job. The tablet is protected from all sides and it has cutouts for the speakers and buttons. And yes, there’s even a cutout on the back for the S Pen.
So, it’s a simple case that gets the job done. You can use it as a stand too and there are magnets so that the screen turns on and off when closing or opening the lid. There are lots of similar cases on Amazon and most of them should be fine too.
KIZUNA Tablet Sleeve
I’m using the KIZUNA Tablet Sleeve with most 10-inch tablets I’m reviewing. Originally, I got it just because I liked the design but it turned out to be well made and it works great. You can fit the tablet including the ELTD case into it and there’s still some room left. If you want a tight fit, this is not the one for you. But I like to have more room for headphones and other accessories. The KIZUNA tablet sleeve costs around 12 Dollars.
Lamicall Tablet Stand
The Lamicall Tablet Stand is great if you’re looking for a stand to use at home. It’s made of aluminum and has rubber pads, so the tablet doesn’t get scratched. You can adjust the angle and there’s a cutout for the charging cable which can be used when you use it in portrait view. It’s a great stand if you want to watch movies with your Tab S6 but also when you want to use it to work and connect an external keyboard and mouse. I paid around 16 US Dollars.
UGreen Tablet Stand
If you’re looking for a travel stand, I prefer the UGreen Tablet Stand. While it’s made of plastic, it is super light, works great and is well made. I’ve been using mine for over two years already and it’s been a great investment – even though it costs just 11 Dollars.
Samsung Keyboard Book Cover
Now, my thoughts about the official Samsung Book Cover Keyboard are mixed because it’s very pricey at 179 US Dollars. It consists of two parts. The back cover is a bit weird because you attach it with a kind of suction cup thing to the back of the tablet and that’s very sticky. I don’t like this part of the design at all because magnets would have been better. On the positive side, you do get protection for the S Pen while it’s charging and an integrated kickstand that works without the keyboard too.
The keyboard itself connects magnetically. And while it does not feel high-end because it’s all plastic, it does work well. I also like that there’s a touchpad built-in because Android itself and especially Samsung DeX support a mouse. If you want to work fast, a mouse can be very useful.
So, I can’t recommend the Samsung Keyboard Book Cover for people who would use it occasionally only. It’s too pricy for that and the suction cup thing is a design flaw. However, it’s probably the best choice if you really want to get some work done when you’re traveling a lot. You get a protective cover, kickstand, and keyboard in one.
Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard
If you’re looking for a cheaper keyboard for when you’re on the go, I can recommend the Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard. It has been my favorite travel keyboard for over two years now and it works great with almost every tablet. The battery lasts very long and it has a kickstand build into its cover. However, it is a little bit smaller than your standard desktop keyboard. So, you’ll have to get used to it a bit too.
Now, you’ve got to charge it separately. But I think it’s a great alternative to the official one. And a much cheaper alternative. I paid around 40 US Dollars.
The Logitech K380 is a great desktop-class keyboard that is not as great for traveling but perfect for a keyboard that sits on your desk. Again, it works with pretty much every tablet and is a very popular Bluetooth keyboard. It’s a full size one. With that being said, if you’ve got a normal keyboard already, that one might work with your Galaxy Tab S6 too. So, you might not have to get a new one to use at your desk at all.
Logitech Marathon M705 Mouse
You can connect pretty much every mouse to this tablet. So, if you’ve got one already, try it. I’m using the Logitech Marathon M705 mouse that I also use with my notebook and other tablets. It works great. But again, you should be able to use the one you have already too. The Logitech M705 costs around 36 Dollars.
TUTUO USB C Dongle
Now, you can connect the Galaxy Tab S6 to complex USB C hubs and even connect a monitor. Personally, I’m only doing that for the review but never for myself. Instead, I often use a very simple USB C dongle to connect USB Type-A accessories or to read out SD cards. For this, I’m using the TUTUO USB C dongle. It’s small, very simple, and cheap. I paid around 10 Dollars and I’ve used it for many years already. It works great.
SanDisk Extreme 128GB MicroSD Card
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 has a microSD card slot which means you can use pretty much every microSD card to expand the storage. Most cards should work fine. I’ve been using the SanDisk Extreme 128GB microSD card that I always use for my reviews. It costs 24 US Dollars.
Samsung Charging Dock
When buying the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 in Germany, there was a special pre-order deal which gave you the official Samsung Charging Dock for free. So, I’ve been able to try it. It basically is just a charging dock that you attach to a USB C charger. Once you connect it, the tablet displays the time and you can swipe through some other features. For example, you can use it as a kind of whiteboard to leave messages for family members or so. Well, it costs over 60 Dollars. For me, it wouldn’t be worth it to pay for it, so I can’t recommend it. But maybe it fits what you’re doing and then it does its job.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6Topping all other tablets from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S6 offers the best of everything the maker has to offer currently. That AMOLED display stays unrivaled while Samsung has refined the DeX software and the accompanying accessories to improve the productivity experience. The S Pen now has a more convenient magnetic spot and the back now houses two cameras. Four speakers complement that display when watching movies.
