Samsung DeX Review – A PC User’s Perspective

what’s up guys Eber here with Hardware Canucks and today we’ll be exploring Samsung Dex now for those of you who aren’t
aware what Samsung dex is it’s essentially an ecosystem created by
Samsung that lets you connect or transform your existing Galaxy devices
from a mobile experience to something a little bit more stationary so you can
connect things like an external monitor keyboard or mouse and be able to use
your Android operating system that’s on your device – something with a little
bit more screen real estate now I talk to myself can a basic user who’s you
know say so for someone for example someone who checks their email browses
the web watch content and just do normal things just basic things use a Samsung
device like for example the note 9 or even previous s8 or s9 devices with
Samsung Dex as a primary system well I decided a test Samsung dex for myself
to see if it’s actually worth using in the first place
so let’s get into that right after message from our sponsor evolved with
the times consider nvme storage today the new RC
100 brings affordable nvme storage into your hands with various capacities in
this super compact form factor that plugs directly into your motherboard
it’s extremely powerful and utilizes the Sheba’s advance through the flash memory
for awesome speeds so you can be a happy user the RC 100 by Toshiba the nvme
Drive to consider check it out Philip alright so before we get to the set a
process I do want to mention that Samsung Dex was announced alongside the
Galaxy s8 and the s8+ which was last year so it’s not certainly new in the
market but they have obviously tweaked and tuned a few things to sort of
enhance the experience now if you are an existing s8 s9 or no need user you can
actually hop onto Dex and experience it yourself but the only issue is that you
would have to invest into a samsung Dex docking station because none of those
devices come with a built-in controller that the note 9 does so you won’t be
able to simply plug it into the USB C port on those devices and experience Dex
right away or activate Dex so that’s something to consider although
be mindful that Samsung’s Dex station goes for around $150 which is an
expensive accessory but at the time of making this video there was a crazy deal
for this unit for like sixty three dollars on Amazon so I’ll make sure to
link this and all the other items that I’ve discussed in this video in the
description down below if you’re interested in checking them out now the
advantage of the station is that it offers a variety of connectivity options
like two USB 2.0 type-a ports and Ethernet jack an HDMI output and a USB
type-c port to charge the device while being docked it also has a built-in
cooling fan solution which i think is very thoughtful of Samsung to include
but if you happen to pick up the note 9 the deck station isn’t really necessary
because all you need is a USB C to HDMI adapter or even a USB C to HDMI cable to
connect it to an external monitor 4 dex to automatically activate and
that’s exactly what I did now I should also mention that you can use the note
line as a touchpad and a keyboard but given how slippery the glass back is the
phone doesn’t stay stationary and it just isn’t a pleasing experience using
it so keep that in mind now for the keyboard and mouse setup given that I
don’t have the deck station the only option I had left was to use bluetooth
accessories and for that I pulled out my Logitech a380 Bluetooth keyboard you
guys may remember this from the iPad video that I did before and for the
mouse well I ended up hearing the note 9 with the Logitech MX master 2s now I
know this is completely overkill for this setup this is a $100 Mouse by
itself but it is C it was the only bluetooth mouse that I had lying around
Studios so you can definitely get away with a cheap bluetooth mouse without a
problem now setting up dex is actually very simple all you need isn’t putting
an expensive US PC to HDMI adapter I just had this LG one lying around the
studio so I had them connected to the HDMI cable I paired it up with my 4k
monitor and Samsung dex was automatically activated so why don’t we
actually hop into a demo to see what the whole experience is like well as you
guys can see we are greeted with the home screen and you may notice that I do
have a lot of my frequently used applications pinned to the taskbar this
is an option that you can certainly do all you have to do is head over to the
app drawer you can right-click on an application and you can add it to your
home and then pin it directly from there to your taskbar so it’s fairly
convenient now towards the top left hand side you will notice the navigation
buttons for example the app drawer that literally pulls up
your applications which is fairly nice and straightforward then you have your
recent tablet that lets you cycle between all of your recently used
applications which is pretty straightforward again it’s a more scaled
version of the mobile experience so it’s nothing to be worried about in fact
you’ll get used to it right away now if you’re interested in playing around the
settings for Samsung dex it can actually head over to the bottom right
hand corner of the screen and click on this little expand tab that gives you a
list of icons that essentially showcases all the settings that you that are
associated with the note 9 so for example if you want to check on
battery life you can obviously do that and if you want to check on your Wi-Fi
status or your blue 2 status in this case I have but the note 9 pair to the
master 2’s Mouse and the K 380 keyboard and of course there’s a notification
tour so it’s very similar to what your experience with the smart phone but
again it’s much more convenient intuitive way of being able to see them
and of course you do have the option to clear them as well just as you would on
a smart phone so very simple very intuitive super easy to get used to so
there’s nothing again to learn here another cool feature that’s baked into
dex is the ability to switch your audio sources so in this case I do have
the option to switch between the stereo speakers that are on the note 9 or the
built-in speakers that are on my monitor because HDMI carries the audio signal so
you do have the option to use either of those which is pretty cool no I do want
to mention that the majority of applications that are geared to use on
your smart phone I’m really optimized for the desktop experience so a good
example of that would be if I were to open up Instagram it literally opens up
a small window that is associated with your smart phone screen setup so
essentially consider it as a smart phone screen like size on your desktop so you
really can rescale this or there is a full screen tab that lets you
essentially take advantage of that real estate and that’s and that makes sense
because most of these mobile applications are geared or optimized to
take advantage of the the you know the smart phone aspect ratio so it just
wouldn’t make any sense to take advantage of all of this real estate
here’s another example of speed test this is another app that I used to check
Wi-Fi speeds again I can’t really scale them because it’s essentially the exact
same size as the Instagram app so that’s thing to consider but there are
applications some applications that that are a little bit an exception here so
Twitter for example is an application that can be rescaled and can be used in
full-screen mode if you so desire but this is again a very it’s just a waste
of space if you already ask me because this is just a blown-up version of
Twitter there isn’t a desktop or an advanced
version of this built into Twitter so that’s something to consider so let’s
hop it to Chrome and see what the whole experience is like I’m gonna kick things
off with tweet deck and this is an application that I use on a regular
basis to interact with the audience and the first thing that I notice is it
doesn’t automatically take me to the desktop TweetDeck version because if I
click on login it takes me to the Twitter it launches the Twitter
application that’s built inside the website does it’s like that phone so
that is kind of unfortunate it is something to keep in mind the same story
goes for Google Drive I mean especially if there are some applications that are
more app based for the Android ecosystem the chances are you might not be able to
experience the desktop version of that on on Samsung dex so there are some
expect exceptions to that I mean the first one is of course Gmail so for
instance this is very much desktop like but it’s nowhere near as close to what
the modern version of Gmail looks like as this looks like a UI from I don’t
know 2005 but if you were to ask me because you’ve got the blue texts and
the whole thing but again it is it’s very much usable you can compose mail
too if you want to it’s very much old-school like I mean it really does
bring back a lot of memories if you were to ask me but it’s usable you can
certainly you know send emails and do all kinds of stuff with a Gmail on
Chrome with YouTube there is a little bit of a tweak that you have to do in
order to experience desktop so you have to go into settings which with this 3
pin tab and then there is a desktop mode right there so if you click on it it’ll
take you to the desktop version of YouTube which if you were to ask me
looks exactly the same as what you’d find with the desktop version that’s on
you know Windows or PC or Windows or Mac so it’s very much similar it looks like
I’m basically browsing the desktop version of YouTube so there’s nothing
there what’s even interesting is the note not
actually keeps up really well when it comes to loading up content so if I were
to click on you know a video it’s it’s pretty much fast I mean I don’t
experience the low downs whatsoever I can view the comments I can click on I
can check out the recommended videos on the side so it’s very much desktop like
and I really like that about the whole index experience now you know websites
like Hardware index or the verge load just fine
like the desktop version so that’s pretty awesome now let’s fire up the
standalone YouTube app and see what the experience is like and I think the first
thing that comes to my mind is it’s basically a blown-up version of the
YouTube app by itself I mean this almost feels similar to me browsing on an
Android tablet because it takes advantage of all the screen real estate
I mean you’ve got your homepage your trending page your subscription page or
inbox and all that kind of stuff if I were to go browse the comments I would
actually have to go through the recommended feed to actually access them
or even to reply to a certain comment and I think that’s kind of weird I’m not
sure if it was an intentional design with this app in particular because you
could literally have the the comments repositioned to the bottom left-hand
side of the app so I think at this point you’re actually much better off using
YouTube on Chrome because it’s again way better than the standalone app by itself
now I really had a lot of fun playing around with Adobe Lightroom for Android
and as you can see this isn’t the full dedicated desktop version it’s again the
mobile version for Android but it actually does a pretty good job taking
advantage of the real estate that it has so for example if I want to go in and
change things like the exposure or the contrast or fill around with highlights
maybe decrease the vibrancy or increase that I can go in and do that and what’s
even interesting is that the changes actually occur really fast and that’s
thanks to the high end specs that’s on the note 9 so the phone actually does
keep up really well overall it’s not a you know terrible experience I wouldn’t
say it’s super smooth at you know 60 Hertz or something like that but again
this is this is all being powered by a single smartphone and that to me is
pretty fascinating just being able to do things like be able to edit photos which
is again really awesome now a lot of you guys may be wondering what the gaming
experience like with Samsung Dex and quite
frankly it’s it’s respectable because you know like I said I’m kind of
surprised for the fact that this is being powered by the note 9 and I’m
literally just having this hooked up to my 4k display so the graphics are not
the best but again very respectable I mean this is kind of the future that
we’re all hoping for you know being able to power all of our gear with just a
single device and we’re almost close to that so typical controls like your
keyboard controls like your wast set of keys work just fine when it comes to
moving up and down and you know doing all kinds of stuff but for example if I
want to navigate around and change my angle I would have to hold the primary
button and shift the or just change the angle as you’re seeing right now so it
is kind of unfortunate I mean you kind of have to again it’s not similar to
what you would get with a desktop experience of pop G it’s again a mobile
version I actually would prefer playing pomp G on the mobile side because you
you basically interact with the whole screen if you if you are a pub G mobile
player but yeah overall um you know it’s respectable that’s that’s what I have to
say about this now one of the things that I found to be a little frustrating
is if I were to open up the gallery app which is a file explorer app that opens
up again a desktop like experience or a desktop like window and if I want to
quickly go in and adjust or if I want to drag and drop pictures I actually won’t
be able to do that like I would be able to do with Windows or Mac so that’s kind
of unfortunate I really wish Samsung was able to implement that with this setup
but that is impossible with what we have right now so the whole drag and drop
thingy doesn’t really work that well with dex in fact it’s non-existent no
I did experience some scaling issues with samsung dex and a good example of
that is Google Docs when I was working on a script the app by itself was
pixelated and it wasn’t really pleasing to the eye and I think part of that has
to do with me using a 4k monitor and the signal by itself being 1080p because
it’s being upscale too you know it’s being upscale to 32 inches so that’s
something to consider but what’s really odd is that I am using a USB see two
HDMI 2.0 adapter that supports 4k output so I’m not exactly sure if it’s
a port restriction or if it’s an adapter assertion because the official Samson
adapter does support 4k and Samsung does claim that so I might have to test that
out or I might have to test the output resolution with the Samsung adapter
later on to see if it actually works but as of right now I was only able to get
it up and running at 1080p so that’s again something to consider the new mark
2 courser strafe and k70 keyboards are fully loaded with custom illumination
convenient media buttons USB pass-through extra set of key camps and
ergonomic rest rest for each keyboard so you can type or game comfortably with a
variety of MX switches available so you can check out which keyboard suits you
best in the description below guys that’s pretty much Samsung dex in a
nutshell now if you do intend to pair up a keyboard or a mouse with a Samsung
device especially the recent ones that are out there in the market there are
some keyboard shortcuts that have been imported from the desktop experience for
example things like ctrl-c ctrl-v which is a standard copy and paste or for
example the alt tab a shortcut that lets you switch between different tabs
quickly it all works just fine with samsung dex so that’s pretty amazing
especially if you want to quickly jump between apps so things like that are
definitely still present with the Samsung dex and I really appreciate
that but if you end up picking up the K through 80 this is actually a really
awesome value or pretty amazing Bluetooth keyboard so it comes with a
lot of the media controls that you really need for example play pause
especially if you’re listening to Spotify or for example if you want to
adjust the volume you have those options right away in fact it does have the home
and the recent buttons dedicated buttons by itself so this keyboard would be an
excellent addition for your dex set up but not just that it’s also a great
Bluetooth keyboard for example the battery life on this thing is actually
amazing I picked this up last year and I haven’t had to change the battery on
this thing yet and it’s very durable I mean I’ve tossed us around here and
there I’ve traveled with this guy so it’s held up really well so it’s really
an amazing keyboard for its price and I’ll make sure to link this in the
description down below if you’re interested now coming back to Samsung
dex and I have to admit that I’m actually pretty excited to see what
Samsung has planned for the future not just Samsung but other smartphone
companies that are intending to transform their mobile experience to
something a little bit more desktop like now this isn’t part of
by any means it still has its drawbacks I would say it’s still in its infancy
stages because there are it doesn’t completely replace your desktop and I’m
not certainly recommending you guys to switch or ditch your existing desktop
setups and switch over to Dex that’s just not practical because it can’t you
know edit videos or it can do things that you don’t be able to do with a
typical desktop setup but either way I think Dex is pretty cool it still has a
lot of work that needs to be done and I’m actually curious to see what they
have planned out for the future and I want to hear your thoughts on Dex and
whole ecosystem have you experienced it for yourself and
what’s it like do you like it do you dislike it and if you have feedback that
could potentially help enhance or elevate that user experience you know
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments but I also want to know you
know where do you guys see smart phones in 10 years perhaps the whole concept of
being able to transform your portable smartphone to something a little bit
more desktop like would you actually be able to gain at you know ultra settings
in 4k or would you be able to do things that you normally do on a desktop on
something like a smartphone being able to connect or having that connected to
an external monitor and the other accessories yeah love to hear your
thoughts in the comments I mean bear with Hardware Canucks thank you so much

    Just to confirm, did you just connected both mouse and keyboard with your note9?
    Well, in other words can I connect both mouse and keyboard at a time on note 9?

  • Goldman SAX

    Good video. But how about when your phone rings while you're working ? Does it shut down the dex to answering the phone ?

  • Pulsar Tech

    Do yall not remember the phone a few years back that had a laptop that basically did the same thing??? Forgot what the phone was but I had one and it was the best thing ever

  • Shawn B.

    To start you should have out the browser in desktop mode to begin with. As far as apps opening with links, that's what happens when you set the links to open the app by default. There is no dex|mobile flag. As far as apps go, the devs have to build with the dex SDK which most do not, that is not on Samsung. You should look into the devil options which unlock a lot of features to fix some of your issues. The display settings you have to change. Dex has its own display settings.

  • K2o

    Near pointless 17 mins sorry. Who would use dex for YouTube, twitter and Instagram? As other comments said you can simply chrome cast it if you just wanted those features.
    Show actually what pc users do on a pc… Office, database? Web development? Coding? Actual photoshop? Multitasking/heavier load items? Etc etc.

  • Brian Hunt

    I used to be able to list plug my phone into my TV and watch everything on my TV now with DeX I can't do anything?

  • Luca Malato

    I don't know if it has showed up already, but in my Samsung s8, it is possible to use dex with a usb-c adaptor just like you did with the note 9

  • Rick Paquin

    Suggest you update this perspective since it's now old. With Developer mode on, most applications scale very well. Also, with the recent update on Samsung phones, Version 8 on up, you no longer need the DEX station. Just a USB-C to HDMI adaptor. As a former PC user who was tired of all of the PC issues, including speed issues, DEX is a wonderful alternative. True, it may not substitute a computer for serious gaming, and Android is a learning curve for those not familiar with the OS, but at the end of the day, as an experieced android user, I find that DEX outperforms my PC and I haven't had to touch my PC since I've had it. That said, the quality of your experience depends on the quality of the apps you choose to get your task done. I'm also not a fan of cloud based anything. If you have alternate local storage on your network you prefer to use for your documents, there are specific file managers and word processors that, when used in combination, will save your edited changes back to your network location automatically, provided you use the file manager initially to open the file. Android is not MS Windows but there are many tricks to accomplish the same thing. One you learn them, DEX is a joy to use. And with my S8 plus, just carry the USB-C to HTMI adaptor, and an HDMI cable, plug it into ANY monitor or TV and you've got your portable windows system without lugging around a laptop. And you don't need a mouse because your phone can be a touch pad. Great for traveling. I also have a Tab S4 and that tablet will run in DEX providing you with a full PC experience.

  • The Wonderland Show

    In Pubg Mobile, did you go to settings and set the FPS to max? I think not. It should be a much smoother experience on the Note 9.

  • Péter Molnár

    I have some problems with dex, but maybe I am the one doing something worng. I have a Note 9. It was pretty easy to connect it with my PC's monitor with the USB-C/HDMI adapter. I have a Xiaomi Mi mouse, wich also connected easy with the phone. I knew I would never use it at my primary device, because I work on a laptop at my workplace with an additional monitor, and for other tasks I use my desktop PC at home. BTW I thought the dex and the Note 9 combination would be a perfect holiday computer. And what do you do on your holiday? Watching some movies/cartoons with the kids from the SD card (it worked fine with VLC app), posting some photos on Facebook or Instagram (also worked fine, but it's still easier to do it from the phone itself, without dex). The most important thing on a vacation is communicating with my relatives via skype or duo. And it was the weakest point. I use a clearview cover so i put down my mobile horizontally on the desk. On the phone's screen I can use Duo normally, they see me vertically and I can see them correct, too. But on the monitor or TV I used with dex everything went wrong. They saw my picture 90 degrees rotated and I couldn't see them. What could be the problem? I've expereienced nearly the same problems with skype, too. Could anyone help me about that?

  • Thomas Aasen

    I have the DeX Satation that came with the Note9, EE-MG950. I've heard that it doesn't work/show 4K, so no need for a PC-Screen at that. I have the older Logitech T810 keyboard, and I love it. I also have "Daskeyboard 4 Professional". I just think its AMAZING, sadly it doesn't have light on the keys, that such. Anyway, I never used my DeX Station, since I dont have a PC screen. So, my big question is, what would you recommend as a great screen for me? I have the older bluetooth speaker, Sony SRS-X5, nothing special, but you get sound at least. Also have my Bose QuietComfort 25, not bluetooth. So I might need a PC screen with a headphone port and maybe speakers to would be fine? I guess it doesn't matter if I go for a 4K screen, never know what the future brings. Also, a good PC mouse or pad or those "Ball-pad-mouse-joystick controls", you know😄. What would you recommend me to buy? So, a decent to great PC screen and one kind of those controls mentioned. Sure would appreciate your recommendation. I've always used my smartphones since they came on marked. Before I had my beloved Lenovo T510 as my surfing, mail, bank, games and video tool…RIP, it served me well. So much that I'm thinking of getting the newer Lenovo, but I'm not sure what to choose. I love a good keyboard/set, and the T510 was the best I've ever tried. I'm thinking of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, 6th Gen or ThinkPad T480. But in fact, I really dont need it. I'm now sticking to the Samsung Note series, had'em all, except three. So when traveling, I have all I need on my phone. But I miss a sitting and typing on a keyboard and looking at a big screen, so first of all, Screen and mouse or another option. 😊. Thanks for the review. 🙏✌☀️

  • Melvin Abraham

    You were using "Basic HTML" version for Gmail in web instead of "Standard" version. That's why it looked so old. BTW, there was clearly a way to switch to Standard Mode right at the middle of the screen… 😜

  • Yerlin Morel

    Does this use my phone data? Please tell it does.. I have unlimited data so it will be perfect since I dont have any wifi for my computer outside of my house

  • Remon Vredebregt

    Great video, gives a good introduction to DEX. DEX does it all for me for 2 years now on my Note8.
    For use off apps that dont work correctly try to use "DEX MAX" from the playstore by recreating the app with DEX MAX. Its a game changer! 👍

  • Cyrus McMillan

    So I just started to play around with DeX on my S9 and I have to say that I'm amazed! I also have a Chromebook and I think that I kinda regret buying it. I just plugged in my cheap usb c to hdmi + usb port dongle that I used for my Chromebook, and DeX started up right away! I did experience some crashes with apps and lag that wouldn't happen on my Chromebook, but the good thing about DeX is that I can use all the apps from the Play Store. Some apps wouldn't support my chromebook, such as Google Assistant. DeX's interface is similar to Chrome OS as well. Using an external mouse and keyboard works really well. I can see that as Samsung keeps improving DeX, more people well start to use their smartphones as their primary computers…

  • legitmontrellthigpen

    I loved this when HP partnered with Microsoft to do this with the HP Elite phone and thier lapdock. I believe the reason its working so well with Samsung is due to the Google play store.

  • Kiyoshi Matsutsuyu

    Dex doesn't support 4K. It supports 1920×1080, 1600×900, 2560×1440, and a few ultrawide resolutions: 2560×1080 and 3440×1440.

    Dex has never and will never support 4K desktop mode. HUAWEI is the only other Desktop mode, and it only supports 1080p output. It's a shame.

    Nothing else will ever work.

  • Lothar Scholz

    I hate DeX, my old $100 Fusion 5 Tablet from 2012 has a microHDMI port. This is enough and costs a few dollar. Samsung want to rip everyone off with proprietary standards and fails with it again. Mid 2019 now and nobody uses DeX.


    if only google and microsoft team up to make the ultimate portable desktop experience. an android with a capability of wndows 10 dex

  • El Bowes

    DeX will work with a Samsung Galaxy S8 simply plugged into a powered USB-C / HDMI hub, so you don’t have to buy the DeX Station. It’s better this way anyway, since the phone screen turns into a touchpad. It would be awkward using that with the DeX Station, even though you can get it much cheaper nowadays.

  • Wilbor Arthur

    Regular users do not edit vídeos, and do not use 4K, I think u could text in MSOffice or gdocs, and browsing (I did that last one) that I think would get more the daily regular users..

  • Raj Kanjan

    Hello, I looked up for Samsung dex and watched this video to have an understanding if I can edit word documents and specially if I can write on the Powerpoint presentations (when you are in presentation mode and when you can use pen to write on the slide i was thinking if that can be done with S-Pen instead) I don't think you can make changes to the video but I will greatly appreciate if you can just try it out and tell me your experience. This is the first video I have watched from your channel and I am subscribing because I liked how calm and cool the whole experience is. Have a great day!

  • Un Bezo

    You would still need the dock for the note 9 because it'll eventually run out of battery. I have a note 9 and I could only use it for 1 1/2 hourish before I run out of battery which is annoying.

  • Francisco Butte

    Excellent review. A question about 60hz output.
    If I buy a USB-C to HDMI dongle they support 60hz will it work with the Note 9 or the signal will still being 30 hz?

  • Alfarant Sava Hashfi

    Samsung Dex is a small glimpse of the future. Maybe one day in the future, all smartphone device can be use as a pc for a general uses

  • Ben Pierpoint

    Please let us know if you can run 3 external monitors off dex or docking station…
    If it can't, yet, please put Samsung or aftermarket under pressure to make it happen.
    We need this before laptops can be thrown away…

  • Jeff Davis

    I could see this working for me if I had a laptop or device that I can plug my phone into,But then again that would just be a Chromebook

  • Esmond Msimango

    This is simple. Just like an iPad Pro, a Samsung Dex is not meant to replace a is meant to make things easier for consumers by adding productivity on the go in a case you cannot carry a full pc around with you. There is so much Dex is capable of doing but will never replace a full pc

  • absol_89

    I'm running the S9 with the dex pad (got it used for 40$). Running some emulation, YT and Netflix to a "dumb" monitor i used for the Nin.Switch 🙂 Having the pad flat is a nice way to control it.
    Somehow my 5G wifi disconnects or is not powered enough when using the dex, so I had to connect to the other older signal version of the network. (As the pad does not have ethernet input).

  • Al about Food

    fast forward 1yr later (although some other videos covering Note 9 and DEX were older too) YES you can do video editing, video calling, full word processing, etc. Samsung also has more Dex-compatible apps on the Play Store. Dad Joke aside…. these two are note-worthy😏

  • jpusar

    I used Dex while saving money for grad school by not paying for home internet. It was a game changer. Besides homework that required Excel, I never actually needed to use my desktop PC. The browsing experience was phenomenal, apps like Word worked just like on Desktop for the most part, text IDE’s for Android worked fine for whenever I needed to do some work at home, and most Android apps played nice with Dex.

    Makes me wonder why desktop phones aren’t a mainstream concept, or why Samsung doesn’t really advertise it all that well. I remember owning an Atrix and thinking the concept was fantastic, but the software implementation mixed with the severely underpowered hardware made the idea impossible day to day. Like a desktop PC running 512MB of RAM? Yeah it was too early for phones to have this sort of role.

    Now that these phones are more powerful than my laptop I can’t imagine why smartphone makers won’t try ideas like Dex to give reasons for upgrading.
