Hi guys.
I just bought S5e cover with keyboard and since I'm oldschool,I'd like to use tablet sometimes as a laptop.
I know I can switch to Dexx mode but I wonder can I use mouse with it?
I have some dongles USB type C to Type A (3.0 and 2.0) but those are chinese.
Can I use them normally connecting to type C port on tablet without any issues and then connect wireless mouse dongle over it?

Yep you can :)

I know that some phones/tablets are super sensitive on which dongles you use to connect the peripherals, however I have had my luck with several devices previously. I have never owned the Samsung Tab S5e, but I have the Tab S6, and it eats any dongles i throw at it.

Psst: I have a dongle with 3x USB 3.0 ports, 1x1000mbps LAN, 1xUSB-C and SD card reader on it, and all works.
