I do almost everything on my phone since it’s very powerfull and always on me, but I recently started learning about Web development, and trying to do that without a keyboard isn’t something I even wanted to try, but I remembered playing with Dex on my phone and liking it quit a bit, so I checked the Play Store for programing app, and was surpised that I had a few options. I gave a couple a try and the first impressions wern’t too bad, so here we are. I’m planning on making laptop dock for my phone.
TL;DR: I use my phone for everything, and after this I’ll be able to use it for web dev on the go (hopefully).
I’m just getting started, but I’ve gathered a few things for this build already (screen, keyboard, USB C dongle with HDMI, USB C, USB 3).
I’ve taken the screen apart and there’s lots of room to slim it down, and now I have an idea of what I’m working with.
Notice that conveniently long ribbon cable. I’ll be able to put the monitor controller in the base if I want.
If I remove those jacks other then HDMI that board will get a fair bit slimmer.
Could have gotten a bigger keyboard. I think I’d like a usb one better anyways, so I might have to get a different one.
I made this post on this setup.
