Hey guys,

Check it out!

Finally, got my very own portable mobile computing setup. Just got my, portable monitor yesterday, which doesn't even have a brand name. I got it because it's cheaper and you can power it up with a power bank. Which is pretty cool. The design is actually kinda the same as the Eyoyo brand.

I had a little problem when I first try to power the monitor up. I tried everything until I discovered, that I had the same USB power cable in my keeps. So, I tried it out and it works. After I managed to make the monitor works with my power bank, I connected my s10+ with the USB type c to HDMI cable that I bought earlier. Voila! Now, my phone becomes a laptop!

I'm actually, typing and posting this using my mobile setup right now. I managed to make everything looks as if, I'm on my pc. I'm using the chromium browser in Linux on dex. A little updated version that got all my extensions. I would have preferred to use Firefox, but it got a problem with HTML 5

There is still a problem with using Samsung on dex or linux on dex. For one thing, my apple mouse acted weird when I'm in linux. But, it works fine when I'm in Samsung dex. No problem with my apple keyboard. I constantly jump between Firefox and Chrome. I try to use Firefox as much as possible but, certain things like watching youtube are a pain. For chrome, it's still not the same as the pc version. Especially, when I need certain extensions.

I'm testing how long can my power bank and phone last without the need to recharge. I started around 1:30 pm and now it's already 5:10pm. I would say, using this setup, I could last around 4-8 hours. That's if I really squeeze it. I didn't play much videos or games. So, it could be shorter. My phone battery is already at 39%. If you have a dex pad, you can recharge the phone and use it at the same time. I can also recharge my power bank separately at the same time.

You can actually charge your power bank with the dex pad, but, you can't use the monitor at the same time. It won't work. That's the thing with this setup. If you know, you won't need a wall power for a while, you can just bring your USB type c to HDMI cable. But, if you're going to travel, you'll need to bring extra chargers. It's mobile alright, but there's a lot of loose things you need to bring along. That's the difference between having a lapdock.

I decided to dock the phone to my dex pad and recharge my phone right now. I just unplugged, and plugged back the cables and went straight to linux. The browser is right where I left it. So, now, I just continue typing this article. That was really painless. I don't think, I need to recharge my power bank as it still has 3 full bars of power. I guess the portable monitor doesn't use much. That's good news. For you road warriors out there.

As I'm used to my iPad touch screen, I found myself trying to tap on the monitor a couple of time. I'm not sure if you really need a touch screen. I prefer not to smudge my screen with fingerprints. That's something, I need to get used to when using this monitor. Well, I think, I'm going to leave it at that. My tummy is growling and I'll finish it here. In short, this is just like getting myself a new linux or android laptop. Way cool!

I really love this monitor and there's not been even a flicker since I first turn this on. I think I do need to figure out how to make the text bigger. As this is a 13" monitor, the words are a little small. The strange thing is that the text is bigger when I visited my blog.

Guess, that's it for today. By the way, I just realized my power bank is already at 2 1/2 bars. Going to recharge it right away. It's better and faster to recharge your devices when it's down half then when it's almost way down to zero. Need to take care of the batteries.
