Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were unchallenged in last week’s poll – the duo is the fan favorite of the MWC. With over 40% of the votes, the S9 siblings got more votes than the next two combined. Surprisingly, Asus clinched second place with the Zenfone 5z – the most affordable Snapdragon 845-powered phone at a price of 480. The 21% result isn’t enough to challenge the Samsungs, but the number of positive comments is more than encouraging. Then there’s a tie – Sony’s and HMD’s competitors both got 17%. The Nokia 8 Sirocco rode a wave of nostalgia (not to mention the well-executed…
Samsung’s DeX dock is now available for $ 79.99 in the US straight from the Korean maker’s website – $ 70 off its original MSRP. Meanwhile, Amazon will sell you one for $ 82.99. It’s the old version of the dock, the one introduced with the Galaxy S8 (but will work just as fine with the new S9 and S9+), that keeps your phone upright. The new dock, on the other hand, lets you use the phone as touchpad potentially saving you from carrying a mouse. DeX v.2 (a.k.a. DeX Pad) is available on Samsung’s website for $ 99.99, so it only made sense for the old version to get a…

Stock up on Switch accessories at a discount today.
Amazon has the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller on sale for $ 49.99. It’s usually sold for around $ 70. If you need some extra Joy-Cons, you can grab them in Neon Pink and Green for $ 61.99 at Amazon, or Yellow for $ 61.99 at Walmart.
You can also pick up an extra Nintendo Switch Dock for $ 60 for a limited time at Amazon, down from $ 90.
The Pro Controller is perfect for anyone who feels like the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers are too small for their hands. The Pro Controller is a bit larger than standard gaming controllers today, but it feels great to hold and it’s not big enough where players with small hands wouldn’t enjoy using it too. It takes the guesswork out of “how do I use these Joy-Cons?” and lets you focus on the game at hand. It features amiibo support, motion controls, HD rumble and more. It comes with a USB-C cable to charge it up.
Sure, you lose some of the Switch’s uniqueness by playing with this controller, but you’ll probably find it a bit easier to navigate in games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms once you do. Even games like Super Mario Odyssey, which is on sale at Amazon for $ 49 right now.
The Pro Controller deal is also available at Walmart.
