  • You can also use a One plus phone and enable the desktop mode in it to have an experience like Samsung Dex... It works just like samsung Dex but it is not the same as Samsung Dex... It heavily lags behind Samsung Dex but is still usable...

    • This works only on the newer models of One plus phones... I have tried it on many other phones running android 10 but the results were negative... I have seen vids with One plus phones working on desktop mode... But I'm still not sure... Just putting my thoughts in here

  • °How much does materials cost in total? °Why not put SIM card into Smart TV, borrow a laptop to phone access bt Full Screen View? °Why didn't you add another 2 USB ports for memory storage? °Why not use a memory bank alongside the power bank? °Why didn't you use construction composite materials for protective housings and backpanels?

  • A lot of android 10 phones(if not all) have a "force desktop mode" "enable freeform windows" and "force activities to be resizable" options available in the developer options. to enable developer mode you will have to go to about phone and tap repeatedly on the version of software your phone runs on, such as MIUI 12.0.4 which is what I have, until you are a developer and it should tell you you are a developer. Then look for the developer options in the settings, you will probably have to scroll down a long way to find these options but the three of them will most likely be together. once you enable this and connect a secondary display you should have a samsung dex-like experience, nowhere near as polished but better than the option that was shown in this video.

  • Would the display control board also keep the phone from leaving Dex after power is removed from the charging port (the port going into the laptop?) I am asking as I wish to use my S8+, a power bank with a USB C and USB A both providing the same power and a USB C dongle. but I am not sure if Dex will run on just the power bank alone. Anyone got advice. Or better yet is there a setting/software that will force Dex to allow phone battery usage?

  • Nice project, instead of mechanical switch with USB C, remove the power bank top cover and add a sliding switch between battery and power board of the power bank. You can turn off the whole system by bypassing the phone's power switch.

  • love it, only thing i would change is to remove all but the battery bank and feed the others with boost/buck regulator to reduce the chances of battery failure and heat build up. lots of ideas now though for low power computers, thanks.
