    Dex will basically let your phone act as a laptop. T-Mobile throttles hotspotting so my phone will run data faster than if I hotspot. Plus, the mobile version of the apps use less data. So, I can connect my S21 and it will run full screen mobile apps. I had a power outage last spring for 6 hours. Just plugged my phone in, started the Dex app and didn't miss a beat.

    , I guess that works too. The mobile apps are usually less advanced (at least for certain workflows), that is why mentioned it this way, so you can have both.

    I grudgingly have to agree with Ted - as much as I am a silo fan, EMR vs no EMR is a no brainer

    Yes. But I currently have both. I'm sure that the folding displays will eventually draw me away from the Note series, but probably not this one.

    See, what they can do is silo one of those thin S-pens that are actually pretty good, and bundle the larger pen.

    Try that sort of thing with AES!

    I have the new Samsung pen and they keep improving them. I was kind of surprised. I have so many EMR pens going way back, but it’s very noticeable. But EMR pens are all good. There’s not much to them LOL

    The stick S-Pen in the silo along with a bundled normal size S-Pen would be ideal of course. For the price you would Expect that much. But they’re claiming that in that whole big massive device they can’t find room for a tiny toothpick. Apparently. Even though it’s no problem in the Galaxy Note, a much smaller and thinner device that is no less packed with electronics.

    I don’t buy it. They just don’t want to do it.

    I would respect them if they just came out and said, “only X percent of our customers use the S-Pen in a silo, so we don’t feel it’s worth doing anymore.” I wouldn’t like it, but I would be able to respect that honest answer rather than this BS about not being able to find space. You can always design more space if you really want to.
