Anybody with flagship S devices or Note devices tried Samsung DeX?
Before that Samsung DeX is only limited to using that DeX adapter and then with Note 9 introduced a USB-C to HDMI to prompt DeX mode.

Now, if you have a Windows PC/laptop (must be supported version), you can install a program on your Windows and you can run DeX Mode using just a normal Data transfer cable for some reason (?).

If you have a phone that supports DeX mode but never got a chance/never wanted to buy additional adapter or monitor to use this flagship feature, you can try it out.



I think the DeX interface could be improved if there are features like:
-Calendar or planner page 
-Seamless typing and sending message (message not sent if you press enter on whatsapp, you have to click the send button).
-Reminder/Notes widget on the side of DeX homescreen.

One downside is you'll need Office 365 subscription if you want to use Words/any Microsoft Office apps on DeX mode. But to be fair you can always use other application (WPS Office is a good alternative).


What's your take on Samsung DeX?

Yes indeed, i forgot to mention that too. But is it the same if you use HDMI? I think different right? If you use HDMI you can project a higher resolution screen I think (?).
Can anybody using Samsung DeX with a HDMI connector attest to this?

Galaxy Note 8 since update to One UI, no longer it need DeX adapter to activate DeX mode. Only HDMI needed. But I never try normal Data transfer Cable. Maybe next time will have an experience with it. Thanks for the info.

Do note that you have to install another application on your Windows laptop, and to be honest the resolution isn't that good.

Hi. New Here. 

 

Just bought Tab S7. Just wondering if the Multiport Adaptor accepts RF Keyboard hardware as input in Dex? Or must we use Bluetooth Keyboard?
