People nowadays prefer using their smartphones over desktop PC’s. Smartphones today can be just as powerful and sometimes even better than some PC’s today. It is even more convenient to use when going online, checking social networks and most of the common reasons why people go online. But there are also times when people prefer using PC’s, specifically because of the bigger display of monitors. It certainly will make it convenient if smartphone users can view apps and other content from a larger monitor of a desktop computer. This is now made possible through the new Samsung Dex.
The Samsung Dex is a special dock that works to transform your Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone into a functional desktop computer. The dock can connect to a keyboard, monitor and mouse. Once your smartphone is docked, you will be able to view the contents of your phone on the PC monitor connected to the Samsung Dex. You can even access your files as well as app through the dock, giving you the option to use your smartphone as a functional PC. The Samsung Dex also has an HDMI port for video, a USB-C for power, two USB 2.0 ports for peripherals or flash drives and an ethernet for a stable internet connection.
The Samsung Dex is ideal for Samsung Galaxy S8smartphone users, for which the dock has been designed for. It is expected to cost around $150. While it is quite an ambitious plan, the Samsung Dex is good enough in transforming the Samsung S8 into a functional desktop. But certain improvements need
to be made since it is still far from perfect. It works well with native Samsung app but may need to check on certain issues with non-native, or 3rd party apps.
