The best Samsung DeX accessories help you turn your phone into a full-fledged computer, but the feature is tragically overlooked by most users today. It’s a shame, because now DeX has never been easier to use, especially because you do not have to postpone three figures for one of Samsung’s branded DeX stations. If you use Samsung DeX with your smartphone instead, there are plenty of accessories you can grab for a Samsung Galaxy S21 or another newer or older model device. Third-party USB-C hubs that work perfectly with DeX, along with tons of other affordable, high-quality peripherals to add a keyboard, mouse and more!
Find success with the best DeX accessories
Samsung DeX Station – USB-C wall charger
If you want a more polished look for your DeX setup, Samsung’s official docking station gives you a good port selection and looks great on your desktop with two USB-A, Ethernet, HDMI and USB-C pass-through charges.
Anchor USB C to HDMI cable for home office
Want to use DeX to play a video on your hotel room’s big screen? Users have been able to enable DeX mode with this Anker USB-C to HDMI cable. Keep in mind that this does not allow you to charge your phone while watching.
Logitech Pebble M350
Better than a touchpad
Although you could technically use your Samsung phone as a touchpad while in DeX mode, it is better to use a mouse. This sleek model has a magnetic top to hide the wireless adapter and it has Bluetooth.
Logitech K380 Wireless Multi-Device Keyboard
A keyboard is essential for desktop productivity, and the Logitech K380 is one of our favorite Bluetooth keyboards for DeX typing on the couch. The battery can last for years and quickly switches between three devices via the buttons on the top row.
iClever Wireless Folding Keyboards Bluetooth Tablet Keyboard
iClever’s folding keyboard does not leave clumsy holes or awkwardly adjusted, crimped keys. The colored backlight is a nice touch, but being a full-size keyboard that can be folded compactly, packed well and works hard, more than justifies the price.
Samsung 55 “TU8000
Devices like the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra do not need a dock or hub to use Samsung Dex; they can use DeX wirelessly on the latest Miracast-backed TVs, like this lively Samsung 55-inch TV, perfect for the living room.
EUASOO USB C Hub
Connect it all
With a total of 11 ports, you can connect a wide range of devices to get started working and multitasking. It includes a pair of HDMI 4K ports, Gigabit Ethernet, PD 3.0 and four USB ports, including two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0, along with an SD card reader, TF card reader and even a 3.5mm audio / microphone 2 – i-1 connector.
Baseus docking station
Dock it nicely
Keep your phone neatly docked in this handy USB-C to HDMI docking station that also acts as a phone charger and more. With fast data transfer and high-speed charging, it has built-in card readers and an HDMI port that supports 4K. Just keep in mind that you will need to remove your phone from its case before docking.
Telephone cube that can be connected
Sophisticated office setup
If you are looking for something that will look stylish and elegant at your desk in the office, this phone cube is about as cool as you can get. As the name suggests, the cube-shaped accessory helps you connect your phone via USB-C to create a hassle-free desktop experience. It has HDMI, USB and Ethernet.
Mix ‘n’ match the best DeX accessories to build your best setup
While you can always ensure a hassle-free experience with a Samsung Galaxy smartphone when using official Samsung accessories for DeX, DeX mode these days will just as well kick in with quality third-party accessories. This is good news for most of us because you can save some money. Plus, it opens up the market of choice when it comes to the best Samsung DeX accessories.
When it comes to a USB-C hub, the EUASOO model and its 11 ports are a pretty good option that lets you plug in pretty much anything.
A wireless keyboard is also a good idea, and the Logitech K380 is a favorite, especially when using with DeX and pressing away while relaxing at home.
Keep in mind that you may not even need a dock or hub with the latest Samsung Galaxy devices – just connect wirelessly to a Miracast – supported TV, like the Samsung TU8000. So look for the feature on your TV and if it is included, you might just be off to the races.
