For those who remember Continuum developed by Microsoft for Windows 10 mobile was not quite successful. However, Samsung has done it well and its DeX has a lot of abilities and features to offer, which also seem to work just as it has been designed to do so.

With a smartphone placed in a dock which would be connected to a monitor, you would have the feel of a computer.

You can write up to 100 pages without even turning the screen on. If you hover the S Pen over any foreign text it will translate it to the default language that has been set on the smartphone. You can also convert currencies in the same manner. Cool, isn’t it?
This is perfect for multi-tasking. It lets the user launch two apps together in a multi-window. You would have to create a pair of the desired apps on the homescreen and then whenever you get the notifications or you wish to launch them together you can do so in the split mode. The pairing can be done for any apps say for example WhatsApp and Facebook or Google and YouTube etc. It makes your works fast.
