Can a Samsung TV be used as a 'monitor' for a Samsung Phone.

by Jay999UK / February 13, 2013 6:35 PM PST

I would like the display on my phone to be visible on my TV. I occasionally have a visitor with bad eyesight who can see the TV but not the Smartphone screen.

I am fully aware of "All Share" and this works fine but I am looking for a little more - effectively making the TV Screen a monitor for the Smartphone

Does that phone (you don't tell which one) have VGA or DVI or HDMI out?
And does that TV (you dont't write which one) have VGA or DVI or HDMI in?
Then you have a match!

But I've never seen a phone with a video out.

My phone is a New SAMSUNG NOTE2. TV is SAMSUNG ES7000.
I have little technical knowledge (none actaully !) so any help is welcomed

I have a phone with HDMI out.

That works for that here. You can google for apps that project the android screen over wifi but as you suspect that's a lot of work. There is no standard there so you end up making your own system

The HDMI cable was cheap, painless.
