Look, if you have a Galaxy S or Galaxy Note smartphone from the past few years, there’s one accessory you absolutely need to get. Not “should get” or “might consider getting,” you NEED to get it. It’s called the Samsung DeX Pad Desktop Experience Dock, and it’s basically magic. Dock your Samsung phone on top and the screen becomes a trackpad. It’s not a trackpad for a Windows or Mac computer, though… the phone itself becomes a computer! Connect it to a TV or monitor and you’ve got a full fledged desktop computer. It’s awesome!
