Samsung DeX stands for Desktop eXperience and allows you to use your Samsung tablet or smartphone much like a desktop computer by enabling the device to connect to an external monitor. This can be done via a USB-C adapter, a USB-C hub, or even a USB-C docking station. Some examples of compatible devices are Samsung’s Galaxy S series phones, the Galaxy Z Fold series, the Galaxy A90 (5G), and many S-series tablets.

There are several benefits when using DeX, such as connecting to a portable touchscreen monitor utilizing an on-screen keyboard, complete with resizable windows, drag-and-drop features, and desktop icons. The DeX interface looks and feels the same as popular operating systems, giving you full control of your smartphone or tablet in a desktop environment. For this reason, DeX has become popular among many mobile professions, such as social media management, virtual personal assistants, marketing coordinators, and journalists.

What makes DeX even more appealing is the ability to add a docking station or hub to connect additional devices, such as a wired keyboard, mouse, gigabit ethernet, and external storage.
