When you travel, have you ever been in a hurry to forget the AC adapter on your PC?
I’ve had a few times in the past while I’m ashamed.I think the measures in each case, but if the lecture to borrow the PC of the venue, I get the thing without downloading the lecture slides from the cloud, but I have to finish the manuscript during the day to go out to coverage it is business at times.
It is good if I can finish it with the remaining battery, but it does not go easily.Looking for the electronics mass store on the go in a hurry, there was also a forced to buy an AC adapter, but if the AC adapter is still good if you sell, in some cases there is no selection, There was no electronics retailer at all in the provinces.
Short-field in desktop mode of the smartphone
Prior, I came across such a situation, but I was able to make time to run into the electronics mass store somehow, and sure enough to look around the store, AC adapter (actually I love the MacBook Air, Because it is a special adapter, it is not unexpectedly sold.
At that time, the interview and writing were the main business trips, and it was a process of the setup of checking in to the hotel after coverage, and going to the manuscript, and what should be done now?
The hotel is good if there is a rental PC, but no such thing.
So I looked around the electronics retailer and tried to find a way to work.
As a last resort that would procure a new laptop here, it came up to get the job done without unnecessary spending as much as possible, the way that you work using the desktop mode of the smartphone.
I’ve been carrying iPhone X and HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro as my main terminal.If you look at the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro, you can use the desktop mode output with HDMI If you have a monitor.
The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro terminal I/O terminal is USB Type-C, so if you have a cable to connect to the HDMI terminal of the TV or monitor from this terminal, you will be able to work in the hotel room.However, it is more efficient to have a keyboard to write manuscript.
That’s why we’ve been looking for and buying connectors and cables to convert from USB Type-C ports to HDMI, and a Bluetooth keyboard with an Andorid support in the store.Connectors are also compatible, here is praying that you can somehow output in the Divine request!
Purchased at the electronics retail store, Ercom’s “USB Type-C to HDMI” conversion adapter, and versatile HDMI cable, three points of the keyboard is elecom Bluetooth keyboard (Win, Mac, Android, iOS).
When I tried to connect to the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro, I found that the desktop mode stood up safely and that I could work just like a PC.This is a welcome feature in the emergency.
You can also leave a power port and a word
Desktop mode of the smartphone, there is such a function in the smartphone of Samsung and Motorola so far, had tried.But in my memory, they needed a dedicated output cable, so it should not have been possible to use it in a steep stopgap at the time of emergency.
However, HUAWEI is available if you can even output from the USB port of the terminal to HDMI.This time I looked for an adapter to convert from USB Type-C to HDMI, but luckily there was a general-purpose product stock in the home electronics retailer.
Being able to use what you sell anywhere is really helpful in a pinch.
HUAWEI smartphone is equipped with an OS that has its own customized EMUI based on Android, but one of its features is this desktop mode [EMUI Desktop] it seems to be.Just connect the USB terminal and the monitor (TV, etc.) to the HDMI terminal, and the desktop screen like Windows and Mac rises.
Moreover, the display of the smartphone becomes the touch pad instead.
HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro and keyboard are connected by Bluetooth.In this state, the cursor operation on the smartphone display instead of the touch pad, the keyboard is active in the desktop PC beam in the situation of character input.
First of all, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro CPU specs are 6GB to 8-core 2.6 GHz CPU memory (RAM) and are much more powerful than cheap PCS.This, by any chance in the future without carrying a notebook PC, smartphone and adapter cable, if you put a Bluetooth keyboard in the bag, is it enough time concealed?!
While I was on a business trip, it was good enough to write even sentences using a text editor, but what other than that will be able to reach the PC.
If you install the Office for Android for Andoroid, the lecture slides created with the PC version of PowerPoint will not be collapsed, and the editing work could be done without any problems.
Excel also started, but I do not think that I want to go to the business trip and see a fine grid of worksheets (laughs).
By the way, the Office for Android Word, Excel, and PowerPoint interface are pretty close to the PC version.I appreciate it, but it’s pretty painful to operate it with a touchpad on a tentative smart phone display.This will make you want to connect the mouse.
On the other hand, Google-made apps such as Gmail is pre-installed, here is the only Android version.It is a little lacking in the interface similar to the tablet.
I’ve been carrying my PC every day for many years.But this time I tried to use a smartphone instead of a desktop PC in a hurry, but by examining again the equipment that connects to the smartphone (keyboard and mouse, etc.), I felt that it is possible to travel even PC-less.
At the same time, it would be nice to have an application that assumes desktop use.In my case, I can do most of my work with a text editor, an app that minimizes image processing, and PowerPoint.I will try to look for a little more Android app with a desktop usability.
Again, smartphone is amazing ~
