Samsung DeX : Turn your Samsung S8 into a Desktop computer

Samsung DeX : Turn your Samsung S8 into a Desktop computer

The Samsung S8 & its larger sibling the S8+ are setting the sales charts on fire. Samsung seems to have a clear winner on their hands with the launch of the S8. With class leading design, specs and performance, Samsung has left no stone unturned to make this a resounding success.

One cool feature that Samsung has baked into the S8 siblings is the DeX console. Similar to the Microsoft Continuum dock,
the DeX dock allows you to use your Samsung Galaxy S8 as a full fledged computer by allowing you to connect to a traditional monitor, keyboard and mouse setup. Once you connect, this gives you the freedom to use Android Apps in a desktop environment.

Our smartphones are almost as powerful as our primary computers, with a lot of the new phones sporting as much as 6GB RAM, its only logical that we be able to ditch our laptops and desktops and only use our smartphones. Many companies have tried to go down this route – Remix OS and the Superbook are two decent attempts towards this. Microsoft’s Continuum also showed a lot of promise, but with the 950XL’s lack lustre sale, that too died down.

So, will Samsung flourish where others have floundered? Check out the video below to judge for yourselves. The Samsung DeX will soon be available on YallaShop.

Another Super Smartphone in the offing – Andy Rubin’s Essential

We seem to be on the verge of the bezel-less phone revolution. First off, the Xiaomi Mi Mix wowed us with the gorgeous Mi Mix, now Samsung has upped the game with the Infinity Display on the new S8. There has been a lot of speculation that the upcoming iPhone will also be a bezel-less beauty.

And now, the guy who basically invented Android is bringing out a premium phone

Andy Rubin is the daddy of Android. Infact, Android was his nickname, and his personal homepage.
He basically founded Android and later on with the help of Google, has brought it to our smartphones with near universal acceptance. Now,in his post Google avatar, he is working on a super phone that is showing promise of shaking things up in the Android atmosphere. He tweeted this image, in which he teases a completely bezel-less phone.

This was later confirmed by ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt as an Android phone.

Fingers crossed for this one. The future looks interesting. And without bezels.

Samsung is back with a blockbuster with Galaxy S8. After the much publicized debacle of the Note 7, Samsung really needed a winner and they’ve definitely delivered a product that can pull it past last years unfortunate events.

The Galaxy S8 is really a design superstar with no bezels on the side, which the marketing mavens at Samsung decided to dub the Infinity Display.

The phone is very impressive to hold and use. It manages to pack in very big screen into a not so big phone. The S8 features a 5.8″ screen and the S8+ has a 6.2″ screen. However, neither of the S8 siblings feel very big in hand. The industrial design is top of the game, way ahead of any of the competitors.

Powered by the Snapdragon 835, the performance is likely to be butter smooth. Check out the First Look video from The Verge. Stay tuned to Yallashop to be notified of the launch date in the UAE and KSA.

Time to Switch? Nintendo Switch : Video Review

Time to Switch? Nintendo Switch : Video Review

Nintendo is the master of thinking outside the box. From the time they came up with Mario, the iconic Gameboy, the game changing Wii and now the Nintendo Switch.

Back when the PS3 and Xbox One were trying to cram in as much horsepower into their consoles, Nintendo came out of the left field with a completely new way of gaming with the Wii. Bringing in the Wii motion controllers was a game changer at the time.  The Wii brought in a whole lot of people who would have never got into console gaming otherwise. The innovative hardware design and game play is what made the difference then.

This time around Nintendo is bringing the same out of box thinking to build a hybrid portable gaming console – The Switch. This consists of a 6.2″ tablet with separate joy-cons and a console dock. The hardware is amazingly innovative.This is probably the first time anyone has thought of gamers who would like to continue their gaming outside their living rooms. The Nintendo Switch has a hybrid system which allows you to play the games you like on a console connected to your TV or in a handheld format when you are outside.

Does Nintendo hit a home run with this hybrid gaming console? Check out what GameSpot has to say.
