i will go for spigen neoflex since the screen is not flat. for case, i would wait to see if the free clear case is of good quality then need not buy.

I am a little confused about the DeX station. Other than able to convert the viewing to pc, does it act as a wireless charger?

There is a usb-c connector in Dex to connect to the phone. It will charge as dex has external power but it is not wireless.

Yes you can charge using the DeX

So think of it as getting a $198 dock that must be plugged into a power source that charges your phone via the USB-C, if you are not using the DeX for it's intended use...

Just went to samsung to find out more abt the Dex station today. I was told that the charger that comes with the note 8 is a 9V. In order to charge the phone using the dex, I need a 14V which can be purchase separately. The 9V charger can only retain the power but not charge it up as dex consumes quite a lot of power cos of the fan in the dex station which helps to cool down the temp of the phone. I was like huh, so a dex is really a useless device for me becos I will not be using it as a com... I was still hoping that the dex might actually charge my phone like a dock station but apparently I need to purchase another charger in order to do that....

Incorrect. I have 2 DeX using them with my S8+ at office & home. No issue using the same charger came with the phone. In fact one of them using S7E charger. No issue, can charge at the same time. Not 14V.

Always discount what the sales tell you except pricing - they all talking out of their arses.

Sigh...... i ordered the slickwrap skin for Note8 on 13 August.....till now still processing....

Dunno if can arrive in SG in time before i get my Note8 or not....

At least a clear case is included in the Note8....so not naked at the very least.

Wonder if the case is ok, will this reduce sales of cases if people are happy with the provided case and not buying other cases...
