Samsung Note 10+ Dex Mode Experience: Dislike The Monitor Dislike The Computer Can Also Dislike The Phone


[Bestbuy618 mobile channel]In 2017, Samsung released the Galaxy S8 series, which introduced the concept of DeX mode, which allows you to connect your phone to the display and turn it into a “PC,” with keyboard and mouse support. However, two years ago, achieving this function required the use of a special “DeX external dock,” requiring the user to bear the additional “cost.” However, with product iterations and the popularity of the Type-C interface on monitors, PCs, Macs, and cell phones, you now only need a data cable to experience DeX mode, which is very convenient. After the release of the Samsung Note 10 series, Samsung DeX can be used with a variety of terminals such as monitors, PCs, and Macs, unlocking a new experience mode for the phone.

There has been a lot of discussion about the Samsung Note series, S series, and monitor connection experience DeX in previous generations, so I won’t go into too much detail here. This time, we chose a new target – a PC – to conduct experiments on. (It should be noted that while Samsung’s S and Note series products are supported by DeX, some features are only available on the newly released Note 10 series.) To use DeX on a PC, you must first install the “Samsung DeX” application. If the phone is connected to a computer and the DeX function is enabled, the user will be prompted to install the application; the download address is “www.samsungdex.com.”

Samsung offers installation packages for Windows 7/10 and Mac OS. In comparison, the connection with Mac OS is a little more difficult, but just follow the prompts and you’ll be fine. Once the preparations are finished, connect the Samsung Note 10 to your computer and launch the Samsung DeX app. It’s worth noting that, in addition to connecting with the phone’s bidirectional Type-C cable, I tried Type-C USB Type-A cables from other phones with no problems.

If you connect while the screen is locked, you must unlock it on the mobile side before proceeding. The main interface of Samsung DeX is simple and similar to the familiar computer desktop. The application menu is located in the phone’s bottom left corner; click on it to launch applications, and you can also check the current background running programs (i.e.

the phone’s task management interface), while the bottom of the screen displays the icons of the currently running applications, just like on a computer.

Users can quickly notify the content of the bar, as well as the phone’s network status, battery, drop-down menu bar, and so on, on the right side of the bottom toolbar. Connecting the Samsung Note 10 to a laptop is more convenient than connecting to a monitor because they can use the computer’s keyboard, trackpad, and mouse directly for entry and operation. Simultaneously, file transfer between the phone and computer is much simpler; simply drag and drop into the Samsung DeX window.

It is very useful in the workplace.

When connected to a computer, the Samsung DeX continues to use the phone’s WiFi or LTE network. One advantage of using the DeX is that you can window applications and easily multitask with the keyboard and mouse. You can, for example, chat and play games, work on documents, and so on.

Simultaneously, if the monitor or computer is used as a casting screen, the user can perform other tasks on the phone. In terms of experience, DeX mode is more efficient than on the small screen of the phone (although the Note 10 screen is already very large) when dealing with documents with a keyboard and mouse, while in the meeting speech and other scenarios can be more intuitive with a large screen to show the presentation content, while meetings, proposals no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no longer no

Of course, after connecting to a PC, launching applications or performing operations may still experience some lag, but generally, browsing pictures, writing content, casting screen, and other uses do not have much of an impact. It can be said that DeX is a daring attempt by Samsung to explore the mobile application model, and it deserves to be recognized. There is a general demand for mobile office, particularly among Note series users.

With Samsung DeX making the phone and PC “seamless,” such users’ daily office efficiency can be increased, and they can even change their work mode to alleviate some of the burden.

Aside from DeX, the Note series has another highlight – the S Pen, which can also improve the user experience. Its remote operation capability is enhanced, particularly with the support of Bluetooth and gesture control, to improve the experience of using the phone in shooting, presentation, and other scenarios. For creative people, this pen is also a “treasure” worth digging, and I will bring more details after the experience. See here, there is still a point that has not been introduced, that is, using the Samsung Note 10 to dislike other phones! After connecting the Note 10 to another phone via its own bi-directional Type-C cable, I discovered that the Samsung Note 10 can also charge another phone, and data transfer between the two phones can be done directly! Those concerned about the cell phone industry will notice that several high-end gaming phones that have recently been released have adopted UFS 3.0, so the Samsung Note 10 performs admirably in terms of data transfer.

If you go out with your friends in the future, the Samsung Note 10 in your hand can be used as a backup rechargeable, not only wireless reverse charging, but also “wired reverse charging,” and as one of the best shooting performance smartphones, it is also easier to share photos and videos between friends, after all, sharing photos and videos over the data line is much faster than Bluetooth or WiFi!
