    I got it and love how well it actually works but it lack some things like more apps and it doesn't seem to let you change the keyboard setup so even thought I have swedish on the onscreen keyboard in DeX I can't write åäö on the physical keyboard. Hopefully more apps will come and language for keys will be customizable.

    And seriously. Does he really, really try to make it sound great by mentioning that you can "even" change the background? XD

    With Galaxy S8 I believe samsung made a new start and stopped following Apple's steps, instead Samsung keep innovating every single day.

    What I see in this video, I truly believe it is going to be the next big thing on mobile phones. The ability to unlock the amazing power today smartphones have it's just amazing.

    Great demonstration video! Phones have become so powerful now. Taking the S8 / S8+, what era of desktop PC would it be equivalent to? I.e. would it match a PC that was brand new in 2010 that had an Intel Q9400 processor (2.66GHz quad-core) and 4GB of RAM?

    This is the future for sure. I would use this at work for office tasks hands down. Only thing I haven't heard mentioned is printing but it's not a deal breaker. We use Office 365 Enterprise and this would do well. Virtual Desktop is a must for professionals. We also have a Server 2012 R2 virtual environment so it would be easy to setup a virtual PC and connect to it while at the office. This is definitely a good direction for office tasks. Things like gaming, heavy video/audio/photo editing I don't think they should even try at this point but business, social media and other light tasks they should focus on until we get super computers on an ARM chip. This is NOT a desktop or laptop but it could easily replace a low end laptop in many situations.

    Notice there is no case on the phone. Dex is not even up to par with the Smartdock. Useless.

    If only the S8 had a Intel/AMD CPU inside… then we could have Wine on the S8 and play Steam games. 🙁
