How to connect cell phone to TV?

by JBG24 / January 6, 2017 10:40 AM PST

So I have an Android Moto G4 cell phone and id like to know if there is a cable I can purchase that will allow me to watch videos on my phone and such things directly to my HD TV?

I sometimes connect my laptop to my TV directly with an HDMI cable and i can view anything Im doing on my laptop on the TV screen, is there something similar to that with a cell phone?

Correct- Moto G4 lacks 'slim port' for HDMI out AFAIK

Chromecast is what I would use as well.
