So many accessories out there cater to Apple’s iPhone, and while many are compatible, sometimes the Android folks need a little love, too, which is why GadgetGuy’s Android geek has assembled a small collection of accessories for anyone else like him.

This should be one of those obvious ones, but it isn’t to all. The first stop when you’ve purchased any phone should be a new case, primarily to protect the look, but also to deal with any drops.

Depending on the case, you might find a bit of highly protective material on the inside to help stop the damage when the inevitable drop occurs, absorbing the shock and spreading it through the material in the case and not to the screen on your phone.

You know, to stop cracks and all, because our parents always told us never to touch broken glass, and you shouldn’t either.
