Today’s ultimate business tool – Samsung DeXShare open/close
With the world constantly on the move and remote offices becoming the norm, Samsung DeX is today’s ultimate business tool
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 08 August 2018 – With tech getting smaller and capacity getting bigger all the time, there’s no need for bulky desktop set-ups anymore. The switchover is also completely seamless. Imagine the scenario where you’ve working on a document or watching a movie at the airport while travelling for business. Once home, instead of having to keep using your smartphone, you can go big and connect it to a screen or a smart TV and do exactly the same as before. As soon as you connect, your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ becomes a smart mouse and keyboard for whatever you’re doing on screen. Of course, the dual app functionality means you are able to split the screen too – and continue communicating with friends or colleagues while you work or watch.
Craige Fleischer, Vice President of Integrated Mobility for Samsung South Africa, says, “It’s all about continuous connectivity and incredible convenience. With the DeX, users may turn anyplace into a workspace, no matter what type of work they do.”
What about video calls? While tech has come along in leaps and bounds, it hasn’t been all that easy to use one device for conducting a video call and making notes or sending documents at the same time. Slipping the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ into its DeX dock allows users to access everything they need for a productive brainstorm or video chat session.
Samsung DeX enables users to continue working with programmes like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, as well as keep the creative juices flowing by creating and editing images in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, designing in AutoCAD and making music with Samsung SoundCamp. Gamers can also quickly switch from mobile to desktop with Game Launcher, enabling a completely integrated experience without interrupting play.
The DeX Pad has a built-in cooling fan, doubles up as a phone charger and supports ethernet, HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB Type C connections. It has a 2K resolution output and coupled with the S9 and S9+ abundant 256GB storage, it’s incredibly easy to work on the go, wherever you go.
“Using DeX as your go-to computing power means you avoid creating duplicate files through unnecessary upload and emails to access from other devices, because you’re using the files already stored on your device. This is mobile computing at its finest – depending on the type of computing power required, the DeX will easily replace a laptop,” adds Fleischer.
The Samsung DeX is a simple dock, designed for easy set-up and carrying. Replacing the older DeX’s puck-shaped design is a flat surface that exposes the phone’s headphone jack. If a call comes in while the phone is docked, a notification appears on the desktop and users simply choose to answer the call without undocking the device, or undock, have a conversation, re-dock and carry on working exactly as before.
