Now Samsung is giving it a shot, with the S8's 'DeX' desktop environment. DeX works just like other solutions - just plug the S8 into the DeX dock, and connect a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI display. The phone then becomes a desktop computer, running Android apps in separate resizable windows. Read MoreThe…

Samsung's Gear 360 from last year was a pretty neat little camera. Like many similar products, it recorded 360-degree video with two fish-eye lenses. But it had a few faults - it only officially worked with Galaxy phones, and it was fairly expensive at $350. Alongside the Galaxy S8, Samsung revealed a new model of the Gear 360. Starting off with the design, the tripod mount of the original Gear 360 has been replaced with a non-moving grip handle (you can still sit it upright if you want).…
