    You probably don't need either one now that there's DeX/Link to Windows. Unless you're syncing with a tablet.

    Is it that bad? I haven't tried it yet since I still use the standalone DeX.

    Yes with a tablet. SideSync is a must.

    But Link To Windows really sucks. All I want is a little rectangular window on my PC that has the screen of the phone - and nothing else. Why can't these assh_les leave well enough alone?

    It's really limited. I mainly use sidesync to transfer files back and forward from my PC to phone or phone to PC. The link stuff doesn't do that yet.

    if we plug it into our computers with a usb cable it still recognizes though, right? I didn't use sidesync normally, I just plugged in and transferred what I needed straight over. that's all I care about for access. windows can take a flying leap...

    It's not bad, it's not designed to transfer files. It's designed to let you send and receive texts using your laptop/desktop. You can see photos and mirror your phone's screen. It also sends notifications.

    I use it daily for the texting capability.

    Yes. USB is the best and quickest easy to transfer files.

    That's too much for me now. It's faster for sure but it's easier to transfer files to my network drive and back than attaching cables.

    Also, samsung flow allows you to reply to text messages, but you can't initiate them.

    Some of these apps for moving files also do not keep the EXIF data in the photos so that is lost and screws up the order when viewing the photos later in the gallery app!

    SideSync allowed me to drag and drop files, and also have a fully functional window the same size as the phone, showing its home screen, off to one side while working on my PC. Does link do that?

    Maybe you can go through your Library of uninstalled apps and re install it from there?

    It does look like however, that DEX replaces SideSync, or at least I think that's the direction Samsung is going.

    That's exactly why I was looking to use it with my tablet. And no, window link do not do that. Actually no other app does what SideSync is able to. Flow does a bit but when you are mirroring the phone on your tablet, it keeps the phone screen on. Stinks. Not sure why Samsung is making Note 10 not compatible with SideSync. Dex doesn't do what SideSync does. And besides, you need a wire for Dex, SideSync is wifi or Bluetooth. Uurrggghhh
