Samsung’s DeX is a seemingly hidden feature in the newest Samsung phones and it claims to be able to replace your desktop/laptop. In this video, I dive into this interface and help you to decide if this claim is true or not.

Three ways to turn your laptop into a desktop:
METHOD 1. For Samsung phones (and possibly some others, but I haven’t tested enough yet), you can just plug in a dongle which has HDMI (and optionally USB as well if you want to plug in any other non-bluetooth deivces). Simply plug your monitor into the dongle’s HDMI, connect a mouse and keyboard, and you will be able to use Samsung DeX. This is a desktop-like interface for your phone. This will allow you to open apps in full screen and operate your phone as if it were a desktop or laptop.
METHOD 2. For phones which do not allow wired mice or keyboards, you can connect a wireless keyboard (and possibly a mouse if the phone lets you, but at the very least, almost all phones allow keyboards). Then connect your phone to a chromecast and use it remotely on a bigger screen. This will look just like your normal phone in landscape mode, but can be turned into a laptop with method 3. I also really like to bring a chromecast to hotels and airbnb when I travel because hotel TV usually sucks. I connect my chromecast and just continue watching whatever YouTube videos, netflix shows, or anything else without having to figure out a new controller.
METHOD 3. Once again, you can use a wireless mouse and keyboard if you would like, but it is not necessary for this method. For this method, download Google Remote Desktop and connect your phone to your laptop or desktop. As long as your PC is on, you will be able to access it remotely and use all of your laptop’s normal features. On slower internet, this can be a bit laggy. I recommend combining this with method 2 (aka just screen cast to a chromecast) for an optimal experience
