    Over the past few years I went from a luggable, to a laptop, to a smartphone... and just as I figure out I might be able to do OTG + MHL to use my phone as a desktop (email, word, browsing the net) USB C comes out and I'm left confused...

    So I was hoping that someone here might be able to answer me this:

    Is it possible to hook up and of the new generation usb C Android smartphones to a pass through dock that would let me connect some USB devices and connect a screen via HDMI while still charging the phone?

    I've found a few docks that seem to promise this, but all of them are for mac's or tablets (example: the Anker Premium USB-C Hub with HDMI and Power Delivery). My worry is that I buy a phone and end up either frying it or buying a 80+ USD dock that doesn't work.... I don't have the budget for try and fail here.

    Anyone got any exprience with this? Smartphone to "desktop lite" replacement using USB-C?

    I'm thinking about the Huawei P9 Lite, Sony Xperia ZX or possibly myPhone X Pro...
