Where are there similar ones for 20? The cheapest generic I've seen are 30+

These "items" have Ethernet connectivity and proper phone cooling for $20?

I bought a genetic DeX dock from eBay for like $28. Complete trash. Didn't work. I made sure to order from a US trusted seller. It has been the biggest pain. Dude messaging me telling me to donate it and he'll give half the money back? Pfft wtf. So I went & bought the real DeX & I've been very happy with it.

Plus I read that Samsung, for beta testers, had recently made it so 3rd party DeX would not work.

Is that working for you okay? I just got an S8 and was going to get the official Dex but this seems a bit more portable with more ports/features.

I tossed them both in the trash and got a full refund. First one smelled horrible and 2nd one was starting to smell like ozone. Functionality wise they were both fine. I bought the genuine Samsung hdmi adapter and while more expensive it has no smells and just works, except no dex. Oh well they are disabling it with Oreo anyway. I say go genuine.

Thanks for the advice. The official one is pretty cheap now at $80 and I see the second gen will be $100 at release.

After using dex, while it is cool, it's just a glorified android desktop. Sure you can maximize and minimize but I think it's more gimmicky. It's definitely a niche workflow but if that workflow works you won't be disappointed going with the real thing. I don't care about crappy micro usb cables but usb c carries a lot of current and I almost ruined the galaxy book port using that knockoff charger. It would detect anything but luckily power cycling fixed it.

Hmm, I have a 3rd party device that works just fine on my S8+. Are you saying they are taking that away?

Supposedly the Oreo update removes 3rd party access to Dex. https://forum.xda-developers.com/...e-t3753734
