The Samsung DeX is the closest we have come with a computer in the pocket. This great feature found on the Samsung flagship lets you connect your phone to a desktop for a desktop-like interface.
This differs from Your Phone Integration, which was featured in the Note 10 presentation in a few ways. Firstly, the phone is not exclusive to just Samsung phones. Second, the phone is completely wireless, while DeX requires a wired connection. That's something we hope Samsung will be able to incorporate into future versions of Dex.
When DeX was first launched, it required using a dedicated dock to connect, but later Samsung improved it by just requiring a simple USB to HDMI cable. Now, Samsung has found a new way for users to use DeX side by side with their desktop operating system.
Galaxy Note 1
Unfortunately, this is an exclusive feature for the Note 10 models at this time. Considering that the Galaxy S10 and S10 + both run on very similar hardware, we hope Samsung will find a way to port the feature in time.
Recently, we have seen Samsung bring some newer features to older hardware, such as the dedicated night mode and QR scanner. Both of these features have come from the Galaxy S10 models to the Galaxy S9, S9 + and Note 9 via software updates in recent months.
Let's hope Samsung continues the trend and extends the functionality of DeX to some of the newer flagships. If you don't have a Note 10, you can still try Microsoft's phone for you.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
The newest powerful note
The new Note 10 comes in three flavors this year, some without microSD card slots, but all without headphone jack. What it lacks in old features, it makes up for top-of-the-line specs with a gorgeous display, fast processor, three top cameras and a fantastic display. Of course, you can't forget the S Pen, which really makes a note a note, and it has more features this year than ever before.
