Use in your day-to-day

Think of the things you do on a daily basis – Samsung DeX lets you switch from one to the other seamlessly, so you can get multiple things done at the same time.

Two screens at once

Take multitasking to the next level. In Samsung DeX mode, you can take a closer look at things like videos, artwork, and documents on a larger display while still using your phone as a phone. Watch movies on the monitor while checking texts, or take a call while reviewing documents without breaking your focus. With Samsung DeX, you have two screens – so you can do twice as much.

Turn your device into a touchpad

Just plug in your device to get to work. All it takes is a quick change to the settings to use your smartphone or tablet as a mouse and keyboard – so you can move the cursor, click, and type right away on your display. And when you want a more tactile experience, you can also write and draw just as you would with pen and paper using S Pen.

* Touchpad and touch keyboard functionalities are only available on selected Samsung smartphones running Android 8.0+, when used with DeX Pad.
** S Pen handwriting and drawing function is only available on Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy Tab S4.
