Working from home can be a boon for productivity if it’s done right. Whether you’re joining the mobile workforce for the long haul or adjusting to a temporary work-from-home situation, here are some ways to get the most out of your workday.

Set the stage

Recreate your in-office set-up at home. Hook up your Galaxy S20 to a tool like Samsung DeX that let's you connect your phone to a monitor or TV with just a USB cable.

Find your rhythm

Good time management is crucial. Try breaking your day into productivity cycles: 15 minutes of work, then 5 minutes of break. Repeat that 4 times, then take a 20-minute rest. You can also write reminders on your Galaxy Note10 using a note-taking app like Samsung Notes and power through your to-do list.

Check in with your team

Send your boss a mid-day update on your progress. Even if you’re not at your desk, you can use your phone as a webcam to video chat with your teammates, so you didn’t miss any conversations that affect your projects

Boost your productivity

Make sure you’ve got the right equipment to excel. Get the power you need to work from anywhere with the Galaxy Book S and maximize precious desk space with the Space Monitor, which folds flat against the wall and even clamps onto the side of a desk.

Keep moving

Don’t feel tied to your desk. Move freely when you’re on a call with wireless Galaxy Buds+. Two mics pick up your voice over background noise, so you’ll be heard clear as a bell. Plus, no need to worry about the Wi-Fi dropping—the seriously fast 5G mobile hotspot on the Galaxy S20 lets you stay connected while on the go.

Make time to reset

Set some serious work-life boundaries to avoid burnout. Once your workday is over, settle in for an immersive gaming experience with a curved monitor. Built for both work and fun, you can switch off work mode without switching screens.

Make working from home
a success

Connect your Galaxy S20 or Note10 to a monitor for a productive desktop experience powered by your phone.
