Amazon is currently discounting the Samsung DeX Pad to just $67.80, which is a pretty good price for this pad, seeing as this is typically priced at $99 and was only announced earlier this year. This is compatible with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy Note 9.
The Samsung DeX Pad is a "pad" that you can dock your Samsung smartphone into and get a desktop-like experience on your monitor. It's a great way to really get the full experience out of your smartphone. Since these smartphones are running such powerful specs, it's no surprise that it can also double as a desktop computer. Now, the DeX Pad is better than the Dock that Samsung unveiled last year, because you are able to actually use the phone while it is docked. Whether that is to authenticate yourself with your fingerprint, or even use the screen of your smartphone as a touchpad when it is docked. Making it much more convenient. DeX isn't something that's for everyone, but it is a pretty cool feature to have included in Samsung's latest smartphones. And yes, you will need a monitor, keyboard and mouse to really take full advantage of DeX with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy Note 9 line of smartphones.
