    It really is not bad, you are right. Waiting for those Docks that have room for SSD's or M2 sticks. Getting not only the screen, keyboard, and mousepad but storage also. An upgrade to DEX and you got a faster OS with that external memory. Is that even possible. Now we all wait for Oppo to develop a rollout Dock.

    This NEXDOCK is Awesome!! its about time a device like this became available. Right now for me to equal the processing power of my Samsung Note Ultra 20 for video editing, is expensive. However we have just seen the Apple M1 processor and the New Rizon processors from AMD, from what I have seen some of these devices are as fast as the NOte 20 Ultra and have the advantage of established software for most needs. Now all we need is the android market to step up their game and make DEX compatible apps, with the same or better features than their desktop twin. The cost benefit would be massive! So maybe now, the need for me to look for a laptop and spend upwards of $\£\e 1000.00 is not required immediately. Personally I am buying one of these NEX DOCK devices, but I will be modifying the speakers so it can be used as a multimedia machine with balls. Or maybe Nexdock will offer another version with better speakers, after all they have improved he basics, which are Sight (better display), and Touch (Touch screen display, touch pad and case texture) , regarding the sound, the NEXDOCK 3 has the space inside the body for a bass chamber this would mean that we do not have to carry around another device to get good sound.

    This is cool but it would be more cooler if they manage to integrate the cellphone somewhere in the chassis, like there is a dedicated slot along in the keyboard part where you can easily slide the cellphone in there which overall mimics those asus dual screen creator laptops. attaching those magnetic docks seams kinda lazy if you know what I mean. Plus it just add more stuffs in your bag.

    Serious question: can this be used to hook up to say a mini ITX build to be used as like your super powerful on the go ITX lap-desk...idk? I've just been thinking of building a super powerful small form factor PC, and thought this would be cool to use in situations where you would like to have a powerful PC on the go, but not have to worry about your display, mouse, and keyboard. This could fit that bill. Edit: @ 3:20 question answered.

    BEHEMOTH202 måneder siden

    Pity it still has the same problem as the last one, it it looks like you cant use it as a wireless display and input for your main PC, imagine having a monster gaming rig in the office but if you just want to do some browsing or light office work you could park up on the couch with something like this.

    Maybe you can learn about TNT go, which is better than any other manufacturer as a dockbook. Compared with Samsung, it has built-in WiFi 6 module. No data line connection is required. Wireless delay can be controlled under 50 ms. Its ID design is similar to the MS surface. So you can use tablet mode. In addition, it is equipped with a 4096 pressure sensitive pen, dual speakers, dual microphone and front camera. With a smartisan phone, it can be a real productivity tool.

    So they want $269 for... basically an external monitor and keyboard for your phone. Just take an old laptop monitor, get a controller board for it on the internet. I got mine for about $20. Get a USB-C to HDMI hub, withan extra USB-C and a USB-A 3.0 slot. I got mine for about $9. Power the hub with the extra USB-C slot, and plug an old wireless keyboard and mouse combo into the other USB-A slot. And voila, the same thing, for $29. Just saying.
