Run Windows applications on a Samsung Galaxy Android device with virtualization and remote desktop connection.

Samsung DeX is a free desktop extension tool which allows you to use your Samsung Galaxy device as a primary operating system and personal computer, allowing you to extend your phone or tablet's display to a monitor or television screen.

The application comes with full support for a number of productivity applications such as Microsoft Office (Powerpoint, Word, Excel, etc), a few other Microsoft tools like Microsoft Remote Desktop and more.

You can use Samsung DeX to interact with video conference applications like Skype and Zoom, use Parallels, Acrobat, Photoshop and a long list of other supported applications. All on your Samsung Android device.

As Samsung Dex was developed for flagship devices, you may require something newer than the Samsung S9 or S10 to be able to use this software.

All in all, DeX is an interesting way to use your Android phone or tablet as a alternative desktop but it may be a little bit sluggish as it's essentially mirroring a display onto your other screen.
