My bluetooth mouse and keyboard both work well and although operating my Note 8 phone, it just feels like using a normal computer.
Personally I feel the base should be modified to allow it to be used with a case attached. I am using the official Samsung Clearview case and it will Just fit in but only with the case closed and hence the screen off. I don't suppose the screen needs to be accessible as it is all on the attached monitor but it would be nice if it fitted in easily with any case attached.
Minor thing really.
