Mirror screening of android mobile to TV

To connect an Android phone or tablet to a TV you can use an MHL/SlimPort (via Micro-USB) or Micro-HDMI cable if supported, or wirelessly cast your screen using Miracast or Chromecast. In this article we'll look at your options for viewing your phone or tablet's screen on the TV.


Connecting over wired method :


1.Make sure that your phone and your TV support HDMI connectivity. Consult your phone manual or contact Samsung to verify if your phone supports this feature.

High-end Galaxy units such as the S series can be connected to HDMI.


2.Purchase an HDTV adapter. This type of adapter lets you connect your phone to your TV and is readily available in any Samsung stores.


3.Connect the HDMI cable from your TV to the HDTV adapter.  Plug the smaller end of the HDTV adapter into your phone's charging port.


4.Obtain your phone’s charger and connect it to the HDTV adapter.  The adapter needs external power in order to link your TV and Galaxy phone together. Plug the charger into the dedicated port on the HDTV adapter.


5.Go to your TV’s HDMI channel.  Switch the channel of your TV so that the display output comes from the HDMI port the adapter is connected to.

Once all the connections are done, your phone’s home screen will be immediately displayed. You can now start viewing your phone's display on your TV screen.


Connecting Over a Wireless Network :



1.Obtain a Samsung Wireless All Share Cast Hub. This device will allow you to mirror your Galaxy Phone's screen onto your TV screen - through a wireless connection. You can purchase this device online or in a technical store. You can also use a a Samsung Blue Ray player with the All Share Cast feature.

Alternatively if you have a Samsung Smart TV, you don't need a third party device. Just set up the Wi-Fi on your TV - the same Wi-Fi network the phone is accessing - and mirror your Galaxy phone's screen onto the TV screen.


2.Set up your All Share Cast Hub device. Whether you are using the Hub or the Blue Ray player, you will need to connect it to the television. The Hub connects to the TV with an HDMI cable. The Blue Ray should have a compatible cable included. Once your device is connected, follow the instructions in its manual to connect it to your Wi-Fi network.


3.Navigate to your Galaxy's settings. The icon resembles a gear, tap on it to open.


4.Mirror the screen to the television. Tap on Connections, then Screen Mirroring. A list of devices should appear on the list. Choose the device you want to use (the Blue Ray player or the Hub). Your screen should automatically appear on the TV screen.
