Samsung DeX Station – Hands On Review

Samsung’s DeX Station envisions a future where your smartphone can replace your desktop. It’s capable enough to work with for short periods of time, but if you don’t have a Galaxy S8, you’re better off with a Chromebook or a low-cost Windows laptop.

    Does this works only with a Samsung phone or can you use other brands like Huawei P9?

    This is great innovation! It's not really there yet but this can become awesome in 3 years. A potential desktop killer. It would be awesome if Apple would do this too but they will never cannibalize their Macs.

    The concept is great but poorly executed. Why? Cause Samsung could have easily licensed chrome os and stored it on the phone on a separate storage allocation. By having chrome os means you can have functional applications to use and not only scaled android apps.

    I would have watched the whole video but I noticed he doesn't hold doors open for women. That tells me this video won't be worth the time.

    It kind of makes me laugh, you can only imagine how much of a nightmare this product must be for the team working on it… trying to adjust everything to work basically on a desktop… I laugh because Microsoft had to do the same thing but backward with Windows 8… imagine having to weave in touch, tiny screen navigation, and have everything not screw up all the previous stuff that already works fine. Fail for both. Thought I think MS is finally getting 'touch' and how apps work better nailed down in Win 10. Hard stuff. I think Windows is better poised to storm into the 'Desktop in your pocket' game, with a full version of Window running on a device like the S8, than you replacing everything from Windows on a Chrome based S8 device.

    Just got the DEX hooked up with my note 8. Love it. Got my PC, Mac pro and the DEX hooked up to one monitor.

    Who is this guy? He knows nothing about DEX, please do some research before reviewing anything

    A lot has changed since you made this video…could you do an update?
    You can include the new interface with Oreo. A majority of the apps are optimized for full screen. No additional apps (DeX Max) required. Plus there are a ton more of apps being created for the DeX. I have been using it exclusively for the last 2 months and I am quite happy.
