Turn the Galaxy S8 into a Computer

New to the Galaxy S8 is an accessory called DeX. This stands for Desktop Expansion. Essentially it's a dock that you can plug the Galaxy S8 or S8+ into. This dock also has HDMI outputs, USB outputs, USB Type-C, and Ethernet. It turns the operating system into a full desktop computer experience you can connect to an HDTV or computer Monitor. 

Samsung has created an interface that acts just like Windows or Mac. With floating and resizable windows, a dock bar, settings and more. Even Microsoft and Adobe partnered with them to create Dex-specific apps like Photoshop, Word, and others. For those mobile business users on the go, the Galaxy S8 can almost turn into a full computer system when needed. Dex is $149 but often on sale for even less.
