You mentioned in your question that you don't want to buy any additional connectors. Any reason in particular? How unwilling are you to spend money? Resolution isn't going to be the problem, it's latency. If you're absolutely adverse to paying, try running a VNC server on your phone then connect to it using a VNC viewer program on your computer.

There are lot of apps to do that. One is droid@screen; you need to have access to Android development toolkit for that though. Extremely sorry for not providing the links, here are the links droid@screen http://droid-at-screen.ribomation.com/ please install the USB drivers of you phone, instructions about how to use it is given there on the site. If it ...

This is at best a partial answer, but I believe I have collected some pertinent information. I'm the author of that other question you link to, and my goal is exactly the same as yours: use the Nexus 5 with a projector with VGA input only. You distinguish between VGA adapter and converter, which is part of what I was asking for in my question, and from the ...

Just to update this answer-- the Chromecast and Nexus player or any Android TV device can now do this for you.

The Specs at GSMArena mention TV-out (via MHL A/V link), which suggests it should work. On the other hand, ExpertsReview states: The micro USB port also doubles up as a display output, though surprisingly it doesn't use the MHL standard that we've seen on numerous recent devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3. Instead it supports the new SlimPort ...

Try these instructions, using a computer with adb installed and your phone connected: Android Jelly Bean (4.2) locks HDMI rotation by default. You can unlock by the instruction of this commit. Add special mirroring modes for demonstration purposes. Assume rotation of HDMI display is portrait. adb shell setprop persist.demo.hdmirotation portrait ...

It won't work with slimport! The Nexus 5x has a USB type c port. Also google has stated that the 5X will not work with USB type c to HDMI adapters. The only way currently to get the video signal from the 5X or 6P is to use screen mirroring with a supported device (chromecast or Nexus player).

I'm typing this response using a bluetooth keyboard, bluetooth mouse, and external monitor hooked up to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It works great and was very simple to set up. No special drivers or apps needed. I'm using a Dell S2409Wb monitor, an old RocketFish Keyboard and an old RocketFish Mouse.

The touch-screen part of a touch-screen monitor doesn't work over HDMI, but with a separate USB interface. It requires drivers specific to that monitor. To make it work with the Gooseberry Board under Android you'd have to find or write drivers for that monitor.

Yes, you can connect an android phone to a TV or a computer monitor. At least if you have a new enough TV or monitor, and not a ten year old TV like I do. :-) My android phone came with a HDMI cable to use when connecting phone to TV. I have connected it many times to my computer however, using a mini USB cable. But I would be able to use the HDMI as well, ...

You can accomplish this with Samsung Dex. What you'll need: A Compatible Samsung smartphone. As of the time of this post, this includes the S8, S9, S10, Note8, and Note9. Either the Dex Pad or Dex Station to dock your phone and connect it to an external display, mouse, and keyboard.

You need to use the MHL Adapter Cable. From the MHL Adapter, you can connect to any TV that support HDMI.

Having a different external display was one of the new features with Jelly Bean 4.2 You will need a siutable update for your S3 to stand a chance. What level of support you will get then is still in doubt depending upon the real hardware capabilities and what support Samsung put in.

Use your slimport to charge and HDMI and get a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, that is the optimal configuration. The only dumb thing LG didn't predicted is to turn off the phone display when you are using an external.

I have both the Iconia A500 and the Transformer TF101. Both output just fine to TVs with HDMI. There is a little bit cropped off the image in both cases and the home - back - recent buttons don't show on the TVs, nor does the notification panel, all suggesting that it isn't really an external monitor type feature, only to play back movies etc on the big ...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 does not support any form of video out. The necessary hardware was not included in the design for cost-cutting reasons. Only the 10.1 has MHL capability. source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=37032295&postcount=110

Asus PC Link was one of the fastest solutions to diplay your android screen on the PC monitor. The lag I measured was of 140 ms. The Miracast lag was something close to 300-500 ms (its acceptable range is not specified by the standard, so it varies).

I use Screen Stream. It sends my screen to VLC. I am happy with it.

I use cable from galaxy's audio jack to projectors video input...

Mugen Power Batteries released a USB Desktop Cradle with HDMI Support for the S4. Unfortunately, it seems to be out of stock right now. You can try and tweet @MugenBatteries when they will restock. I bought extended batteries from them, and will usually give you a discount code if you ASK. :)

A solution is a dock or MHL (micro-USB form factor) to HDMI adapter. A quick Google or Amazon search should find what you need under $20 USD if you go with a 3rd party and not Samsung. Note: some ROMs on some models of phones don't support HDMI out (e.g. CM10 on the i9100 I have) probably not be an issue on your S4 but if you've flashed a non-Samsung ROM ...

If both devices are Samsung they have a brand specific app called SideSync which will allow you to link the two devices via a WiFi network. It's available via the play store or direct from Samsung. I currently have an S6 edge, a galaxy tab S and a Samsung Smart tv and can control the phone or tablet via the tv and the also the phone via the tv or tablet. ...

That idea of adding another converter and going digital-to-analog seems to be one of the ways of getting this kind of setup to work. I added a simple passive DVI-to-HDMI adapter after the above MHL converter (e.g. http://naplestech.com/images/dvi-to-hdmi-adapter.jpg) and then continued with an active HDMI-to-VGA converter, namely this: http://www.sandberg.it/...

Not having MHL is not problematic. Most recent Android phone will be able to act as host and therefore talk with a docking station with DisplayLink technology inside. You simply need the app and an OTG cable. You are correct that the USB standard, until Type-C, only allows a device to be charged, not the host. However, some phones do charge whilst being ...

No need to pay for an expensive hardware connector. You can simply use Screen Stream Mirroring app for Android :) -> I think and I hope it answers well to your question.

Yes it will work. however i can see that this will have lag and will not be sutiable if your going to be playing games and some heavy HD Movies. you'll just get the bare minimum quality. I Would recommend http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-DA-HDVG-Converter-Adapter-INCLUDED/dp/B006FYPT60 Ofcourse if you only need the bare minimum of surfing the web, email, ...

Another U2412M user here Since DisplayPort has been ruled out, DVI is supposed to be good alternative since it's "electrically compatible" with HDMI. Unfortunately, that's not the case for Android device + U2412M :( I have personally tested MicroHDMI - DVI (Xperia Pro MK16) and MHL - DVI cable (HTC One M7) with this monitor, none of those combinations ...
