I'm here to find out alternatives to view the android phone's (Galaxy s3, I9300) display to an external display. I have decided not to repair the display and have move on to use an another phone.

I have come across Micro USB to VGA adaptor. Are there any cheaper ways or even a DIY way to view the port the display? The cell is in otherwise good condition.


  • What kind of a DIY do you expect? I really can't think of anything other than building your own cable as a DIY solution in this case.

  • Probably isn't the correct term.

You're probably looking for an MHL cable.

Here's the cable to connect your Samsung Galaxy S3 to HDMI:


NOTE: 2 Different web sources that I saw right away seem to say it's not a standard MHL cable. Make sure you check to ensure what you buy is compatible (Or us an official source like above):


I had the official cable for my Samsung S3 a few years ago and it worked great.

  • Thanks for your suggestion. It seems to be like Micro USB to VGA.
