    How to Connect Your Android Phone to Your TV (click for full article)

    by Jason Fitzpatrick - November 12, 2014

    -- A decade ago the idea that you’d want to mirror the screen of your mobile phone to your television would seem silly but now that there is so much content on our mobile devices from games to HD video, it’s downright useful to blow up your phone’s tiny display to television size. Read on as we show you how.

    Why Do I Want To Do This?

    As with nearly any tech-oriented problem there are multiple approaches to the problem of getting content off your Android phone and onto your HDTV. You can use a Chromecast to cast movies, photos, and a whole lot more. You can even use a Miracast dongle with your Android 4.2+ phone to wirelessly mirror your Android phone.

    Despite how great the Chromecast is for streaming media content and that the Miracast offers (somewhat unstable) screen mirroring, there’s one thing they don’t (and can’t) offer: the stability and bandwidth of a wired connection. If you want perfect mirroring with incredibly low latency, no risk of wireless interference or dropouts, quality sound reproduction, and the convenience of using screen mirroring wherever there is an HDMI port, then you’ll need a wired connection between your phone and your display.

    What Do I Need?

    The heart of this tutorial is the Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) standard.
