Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent addition for your S8/S8plus/Note8 A really useful and powerful addition to the S8/S8plus/Note8. The desktop experience is really good, multitasking is easy. For Excel/Word or Google Sheets & Docs life just got so mush easier. Many other apps work seamlessly but some still are stuck in their native size so their windows will not resize. I believe more and more apps will resize and work better over time and many once Android 8/Oreo upgrade nits the Samsung range. So for work and getting stuff done - top marks Samsung. For play and watching Netflix etc get a Chromecast then you have all the angles covered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly Re-innovation So happy for this product, it's compact, powerful and really useful for my work since I can take notes and then immediately have the appear on the screen the moment I dock the phone. Yes, there are a few problems, I would have liked wireless charging to be built in (even though the dock can charge the phone using a Samsung approved charger) I want some apps to be supported for full screen but I mainly use the Microsoft apps but it will be nice if all apps supported full screen mode, just like on Chromebook. Also, Samsung need address the amount of crashing it does because Apps that tent to run smoothly crash a lot but it is to be expected on this type of device. The speakers need drastic improvement but it is a great first go at the product. I definitely think in the future Dex will become mainstream and with many refinements to software and hardware (Especially with the CPU chip, that needs a huge improvement to run much faster to be honest possibly using Graphene and silicon for the CPU in the phone) then it will reduce the need to buy big desktop PCs and everyone like me will be using it since it is fantastic innovation by Samsung. I certainly will be using it a lot more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be great but currently disappointing I was really excited when my Dex first arrived, I plugged it into my monitor and it worked great. I could open up apps using a mouse and it was like a desktop experience. Pretty soon though the shine was lost - I realised it's impossible to change the window size on some apps. This includes Netflix which it is only possible to watch in a tiny window and cannot be made full screen. I emailed Samsung about this but they were completely unhelpful and just emailed me a copy and paste response about how to change the screen resolution even though this was clearly not the issue. I finally found a workaround by using screen mirroring which did allow me to watch full screen Netflix on a computer monitor however there are two negatives to this approach. 1. Your phone screen has to be showing the same thing and unless you have a really long HDMI cable is going to be right next to your monitor so its quite annoying having the same thing on both at once (You can't make the phone screen blank) 2. Literally every time I try and use screen mirroring my phone will crash so badly I have to force restart it by holding down power and volume down keys 7 seconds. Every time - nothing else has made my phone crash like this. It may not happen straight away, sometimes it does but sometimes I can watch for an hour or two. I thought the way the dex station opens was cool when I first got it, then realised this is actually kind of pointless as it can't do anything when closed. It would be nice if it could be a wireless charging pad or something when closed. The final issue is that the phone is a bit wobbly in the stand, I guess because the dex isn't model specific, so you have to put it in quite carefully and can't move the thing while the phone is in it or it may come slightly loose. This will also cause a major phone crash! I can see this thing being great with some updates and I'm sure that these are the way of the future but currently I'm finding it more of a hassle than anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great example of get more use out of your phone I really like it. Seemless transition between phone and desktop activity. If you have MS 365 and store everything in the cloud like I do it works brilliantly. You still need a laptop for more refined presentations but editing the final product is a breeze. The only annoying thing is that not all apps work in full screen and on my UK keyboard I can't use the £ sign (I use the pop up keyboard instead). I'm not sure why you would have to purchase the DeX Apps - everything should just happen on here right? Not perfect but defintely good and worth having instead of a second laptop/pc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really amazing product Simply life changing for me; I will not buy another home laptop ever again. Really excellent implementation from Samsung....very impressive product. Only slightly annoying things are: needs speakerphone in Dex and should be wireless connectivity/charging for phone. Just love it. Only slightly annoying thing is that one can't vary the magnification of Google Sheets/Docs but I guess this is a Google issue....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing If you thought the S8, S8+ or Note 8 was good before you need to add the Dex to your accessories and see how much it changes how you use your phone. The Dex environment is slick and I am using it and my phone more than anything else. I am writing this review with my phone docked. Seriously, get Dex, you won't look back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea very poorly executed. Good idea very poorly executed. Way to much design over function, with only a little thought it would have been possible to use it with any case or cover, as it its with anything designed to provide protection to the phone, it wont fit the dex, so the dex is worthless. There is no wireless charging built in? for a device designed to be used with a phone that is wireless chargeable!! For me the monitor side of things is again worthless as I have a fantastic DVI monitor with no HDMI input so unless I use some adapter, no go there, and no sound, which is irrelevant as monitor does not have speakers, and the dex has no audio out, all in all a fantastic idea very poorly executed. Unless you have a HDMI monitor, only ever use a samsung case and are not interested in using the wireless charging built into your device, dont bother, which is a shame it could have been a great accessory.
