From waterproof cases, to clamp on lenses for your phone’s camera, to portable chargers to keep you juiced up, check out the best Android accessories.

  6. Best Waterproof Case: Whether you are spending the day at the beach, by the pool or just out in the elements, it’s important to keep your smartphone protected.
