Albeit in French -- you will have to turn on the close captioning on the video -- and although the captioning leaves a bit to be desired, French YouTubber TearsProd explains the ending on Inception, finally answering whether Cobbs is in a dream or reality.

At the end of the film, Cobb still carries the alliance in limbo, facing Saito, although he had accepted the death of his wife just prior. So it is indeed in reality thereafter. Regarding the router, a totem does not lose its power if it is touched. They do not give their totems to others because if that person will be able to play in the dream and to ensure, in the case of the router, it no longer runs. And then the totem no longer useless. With the world around them, it is better not to trust anyone. So if he takes his wife's totem, the totem works, especially since it is not in the possibility of bringing in a dream, because it is dead.
