    DeX holds S8+ in portrait position. Does this prevent full screen Netflix on monitor from S8+ through DeX HDMI?

    the Dex changes the layout of the phone, and it's not the regular portrait or landscape modes, it's different now !

    It works but only in a small window. It can not be used full screen. This makes it useless for the main reason I bought it. Do not buy until it has been patched to fix this.

    There are much cheaper and better ways to stream Netflix from your phone onto a larger screen. Chrome cast would be one of them, think they are $35.

    I don't think Samsung designed Dex with video streaming in mind.

    For all you DEX users their is a custom app called Dex Hub on Play Store that expands functionality of Samsung DEX
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ies.dexprofile

    • Enhanced input providing us with support for more of our keyboards hotkeys and key combinations to increase our overall productivity everywhere!

    • True windowed mode enables all apps to work including apps that normally say they require a touch screen or are locked to a phone sized window and providing, true windowed and fullscreen support with no hacks required.

    • Alternative start menu bringing more of a Desktop-PC like experience to Samsungs DeX! Adding features such as quick search launch (i.e. enter calc and the calculator will quickly launch if it is the only app installed starting with the text 'calc'). Quick access to the devices power button, settings app, Play store app, pictures app, documents folder and file explorer app from the start menus side bar. Supports launch via the 'Meta/Windows' key, or 'Meta+Alt' if you don't want to replace the default start menu!

    • Disable 'Shift+Space' language switch.
    • Replace 'Meta+E' (Windows key/cmd key + E) to launch file explorer instead of email!

    • Customisable auto DeX startup/exit device config changes:
    Bluetooth, Wi-Fi & HDMI Audio out.

    • Independant volume profiles for both phone & DeX modes, automatically adjusted whenever you change the volume in each mode.

    • Custom DeX Startup & Exit sounds are supported!

    • Brighness reduction and red tint support with quick keyboard shortcuts support to reduce eye-strain quickly and easily without the need to launch any apps!

    • Device monitor is available to allow you to monitor your devices resource usage, to put our minds at ease that our device's can cope under the pressure that we put on them, and showing any running services that may be using up those system resources.

    You're kind of an idiiot with that comment. Yes, some of us want a fully working tablet with the entertainment apps we enjoy in full screen.
