Phone as a laptop

Mobility and performance in one device


Did you know that you can use your phone as a full-fledged computer?

What are the benefits of using your phone as a laptop?

In what ways might using a phone as a laptop be less efficient than using a traditional laptop?

The main need of people who want to use their phone as a laptop is mobility and convenience. The phone is much easier to carry and allows you to work anywhere. Using your phone as a laptop also saves space and money because you don’t have to buy an additional device. Additionally, some features and applications on your phone may be easier and more intuitive to use.


The purpose of using the phone as a laptop is primarily to enable mobile work and increase the convenience of use. Using your phone as a laptop allows you to conveniently perform basic tasks, such as browsing the Internet, writing e-mails, creating documents and presentations, or conducting video conferencing, without the need for a traditional laptop or computer. Thanks to this, the user can work anywhere and at any time, which increases his productivity and mobility.


The main advantage of using your phone as a laptop is mobility. The phone is much more portable than a laptop, so you can easily take it with you when traveling or to work. Using your phone as a laptop allows you to perform basic tasks such as browsing the web, editing documents, and responding to emails.

Using your phone as a laptop is also more economical than using a separate laptop or tablet. If you have a suitable phone with the DeX system, the user does not have to incur the additional costs of purchasing a separate laptop, which may be beneficial for people who do not need advanced functionality.

A big advantage is compatibility with various accessories, such as mice, keyboards and monitors. This way, the user can use additional accessories that he already has without having to purchase additional hardware.

The phone uses DeX mode, allowing you to easily switch between the phone interface and the desktop interface. Users can quickly switch between modes depending on their needs, so they can achieve greater productivity and convenience at work.


Using your phone as a laptop may not always be as convenient as using a real computer, especially in the case of long and intensive work. Some applications or functions, such as editing complex documents, may be more difficult to perform on a smaller screen and may be more limited in functionality than their desktop versions. 

Additionally, hardware limitations are an important issue. Not all phone models support DeX or another similar mode that allows you to use your phone as a laptop. In some cases, your phone may not have a powerful enough processor or RAM to run efficiently. Here are some examples of phones that allow you to work in computer mode:

  1. Samsung Galaxy S21, S20, S10, Note 20, Note 10
  2. Huawei Mate 40 Pro, P40 Pro, Mate 30 Pro, Mate Xs
  3. Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 9, Mi Mix 3
  4. Motorola Moto G100
  5. LG V60 ThinQ 5G
