The Note 9 and the S10 line up, You wont be needing these two DeX stations anymore. Samsung has enabled USB-C to HDMI cables to activate DeX desktop. The hockey puck and the mouse pad DeX stations. The benefits of these stations are one stands up and one lays down and they can be used with USB accessories. Which one is better for you? PUCK, PAD OR CABLE?
on the s10 the battery life is alot better now and yes you can bluetooth devices without the docking station. but really, how long would you use the DeX station per day. my opinion is I just like having both. lol
I have the original Dex and I still use it to this day. I had a chance to use the pad at Galaxy Unpacked but I did not upgrad because the only different was you can use the touch screen as a mouse trackpad. I prefer using my wireless mouse instead so not too many huge differences if I were to upgrade.
