some of these may already have been suggested before, just figured i'd share my thoughts

NOTE: these are for Samsung DeX, not One UI
- Setting that prevents the phone from charging past a set percentage while docked, to prolong the battery's life
- "Key mapping" to enable touchscreen-only games to be played with a keyboard/gamepad, similar to what android emulators on PC use
- Custom wallpaper support
- Cursor speed scaling (so cursor speed is consistent from phone screen to external display)
- Continued DeX updates for older phones (i.e. S8, Note 9)
- Customizable info area (row of icons on the bottom right)
- More taskbar positions (Left, Top, Right)
- Forced fullscreen option for apps (top bar and taskbar hide until hovered over) forgot about F11
- Black cursor option

thanks for reading (if you did)

Hi, for your first requirement, I use Bixby routines to open timer automatically if I plug in the charger. I always set timers while charging and prevents it going beyond 80%.
Some keyboard settings are seen in accessibility settings. Please have a look. Also please install One hand operation+ app by Samsung (if you haven't done yet) for better taskbar and navigation options. Thank you.

thank you for the tips! i didnt know that bixby routines could limit charging, but what i meant by key mapping is similar to BlueStacks where if you press a key you can set it to simulate a tap, slide or double tap on a set area

thank you for the comment though, it's nice to see active people in the DeX community 😄

If you haven't launched your Bixby routines app,
Goto, Settings> Advanced features> Bixby routines(switch ON and open) > Settings(from three dots) > Show Bixby routines icon. So you can get access directly from the app screen(menu).
BixBy routines are full of IF>THEN automations. (eg. IF charging> Then open 'clock').

Thank you for the status update. The cursor issue isn't really much of an issue, but the charging limiter while docked is probably the most useful one. Can't wait to see DeX gradually improve!
