      Those of you that understand my reference in my title know that Microsoft was working on this with Windows phone years ago. That doesn’t take away from what Samsung has accomplished in the least. This is the most under-rated feature I’ve seen from Samsung in years. I am using my Samsung Dex to type this review in Microsoft Word right now. I have a Dell Wireless Keyboard and Mouse that uses a tiny USB dongle. I’m looking at a 24” Dell 1080P Touch Panel that actually works like a large phone touchscreen. I’m generally a Windows 10 user and this Samsung Dex experience is more logical and intuitive to me than Apples OSX or iOS. Most apps are not optimized for Dex but they still run. That means some will be in Portrait mode as if they were a phone screen. They will be windowed however so really all the functionality is there. All of the apps I actually need optimized, are already. That would be my Office 365 apps, the Samsung Email, Photos, Etc. and Chrome. Anyone that reviews this as anything less than revolutionary has an agenda guiding them. The reason I would make such a bold statement is this. Some College / High School students could use a Note 8 + Dex in place of a cell + laptop. If a family with limited income were not able to afford a PC with monthly internet for every child in the house. They could theoretically get an S8 up to a Note 8 ( I know its $1000 but the subsidy helps) and use their TV or any HDMI display with a USB keyboard and mouse and provide a full computing experience with Cellular internet with this DEX unit. No other phones currently do that in the Android or Apple iOS sphere period. Not even the competitors upcoming flagships. Lastly it works. It actually fricking works well. Enjoy.

      Based on your usage - this could be perfect!

      Depending on your use of Dex it could be perfect for you. I had a mac mini hooked up to a monitor and a keyboard. When it died we bought a chrombook and docked it to the keyboard and monitor. But now that I have an S8 and Dex, I use my laptop elsewhere and dock my S8 and bam, it's a computer. I have Adobe Lightroom for photo editing, Mobi Systems Office Suite, Onenote, Wunderlist, Docs, Chrome, Gmail, Drive, Google Photos, Youtube, Calendar, and more. Each app opens full screen and runs super super quick. I also have my messeges app on here and all my phone notifications arew now on my desktop. I absolutely love this setup. I also bluetoothed my phone to a Bose speaker and it sounds great. It's everything I wanted it to be and runs smooth as butter. Even my 1080p 60fps videos play back in 60fps and it full screen. I'm not sure why some are targeting the Dex to laptop users. It will not replace that. But it's given me an awesome desktop experience and when I undock my phone, everything is with me. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

      This small device is amazing, I do not own any form of computer so I would use my phone and google docs/powerpoints for my school work which by the way is a free service compared to Microsoft's programs. This device just makes it easier to connect a keyboard and type away. I use my TV as the screen and it's far more comfortable to do my work since it's used as a mirror in a way, bigger font bigger screen. On top of that, I can watch videos without using up my mobile hotspot data! Instead it uses the unlimited data plan used on the phone rather than tethering gigs. How amazing is that! Good bye cable and good bye home internet. Samsung Galaxy devices are powerful things.

      I don't use my desktop PC much anymore, it's getting older, just sitting there and all. That being said, I decided to purchase the Dex dock in order to supplement my new Galaxy Note 8. I was very surprised at the functionality of this, it does everything I need it to. Amazing, I can carry my "pc" in my pocket nowadays. Will this replace a full fledged PC? No, it won't, nor was it designed to do that. It will however, show how powerful your Galaxy S8/Note 8/S9 really are. It's just a matter of time before smartphones really do replace PCs by use of a docking station.

      I hope more companies start looking into this type of technology is very convenient to be able to forget about a backpack with your laptop, either way I always plug my laptop to external Hardware, now I could get rid of all of that stuff and travel lighter, we tested Hangouts, calls, sms and even Netflix with the help of some Dex app and it works like a charm. Maybe not a full replacement for more expensive tasks in terms of computation power but good tech.

      Expensive Charging Dock

      I really like this. I just thought I would use it more. The biggest problem is that while the Dex desktop is PC like, it's not perfect. There are app scaling problems that seem really easy to solve. I think this idea is going places, and it's a good first effort, but this will not replace your desktop. They also just came out with the new lay flat dock to use you touch screen with the platform, so I'd get that one before the legacy model.

      Easy plug and play. Small portable. Just plug in keyboard and mouse you can work on almost anything. Little downside is some software or apps that work with windows can't use on Android. Keep your phone cool with a fan and act like a charging dock. Work with usb C , so galaxy 8 and above can work with this device
