Why is DEX not being made wireless?

Having to plug in a cable is better than the old docking station, but still not as good as wireless. I can't see any reason why this is not possible with a chromecast/mirrorcast adaptor. If the only purpose of the station/Adaptor is to transmit the video/audio, then the station/adaptor is unnecessary.

It's about time. I've got the note 10+ 5g 512GB. Ideally it might work with VPN on since I can engage the day where we just use 5g for everything and you set up a VPN for yourself between all your own devices.

Wireless certainly the way forward for the best experience!    However now on the latest devices  devices you just need to connect a USB cable when using Dex on PC.  Just started to use Dex  ocassionally really  and pretty  impressed, though with some apps you do not get the best experience.

I don't understand the benefit if connecting your phone to your oc using Dex. If I have a oc, I'm not using a phone for anything. And I can transfer files without Dex.

Suppose Dex more of a benefit for Business/productivity applications, see a bit more here https://insights.samsung.com/2019/08/07/dex-on-pc-merges-galaxy-note10-and-laptop 

 

I do not see the file Transfer as  a great benefit, but some users may not have great wifi.

But you don't need a Dex situation for file transfer.vyou can just connect and use the file explorer.

@chetly  Yes,  think  though the Dex Transfer supposed to be to be quicker .   https://insights.samsung.com/2019/08/14/how-to-get-the-most-out-of-samsung-dex-for-pc/ 

 

 Dex may still be  a bit niche though https://www.windowscentral.com/poll-samsung-dex-windows-10-something-you-would-use
