Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is definitely one of the best smartphones for productivity. It further gets additional points in this area as it can be turned into a PC thanks to a feature called DeX. Unlike its predecessor, this flagship is the first and only device that can turn into a PC without the aid of a physical dock. It can be done thanks to a simple USB-C to HDMI adapter which is now finally available to purchase on Amazon U.S. Thanks to this adapter, you can connect your phablet to a TV and make the Samsung Experience user interface transform into a desktop-like environment, in order to use your phone as a personal computer.
After connecting Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to a TV or an external monitor, you can then connect a wireless mouse or a keyboard to complete your workstation. The new adapter supports monitors with a resolution up to UHD with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The standards supported are HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2.
