[Update: Now $116] Deal Alert: Samsung's Galaxy S8 DeX dock is $134.55 ($15 off) at Amazon

With the launch of the Galaxy S8, Samsung became the latest tech company to try turning a smartphone into a computer with a special dock. It's not a crazy idea given how powerful our mobile devices have become, but the implementation has never been quite right.
