Despite our increased ability to work with smaller, lighter, and more compact screens, we all appreciate the opportunity of switching to a larger screen, whenever we have the chance. And if we also get to keep all the benefits of our Samsung Galaxy J5 while we’re doing so, it is even better.
With the simple lines from above, we have already underlined the essence of screen mirroring. And yes, your smartphone can do it too, as long as you know how to turn on this feature. Coming up next, you’ll see what you need to have and what you need to do, depending on whether you have a simple TV or even a Samsung Smart TV. Here are your simple but accurate instructions…
The wireless connection of a Galaxy J5 to a TV relies on:
- Having a Samsung AllShare Hub that you can easily purchase from many online places;
- With this hub and a standard HDMI cable, set up a connection to your TV;
- Once the Hub and the TV are connected via HDMI, use your wireless network to connect the Samsung Galaxy J5 smartphone to the TV – it is essential that your phone stays connected to the same wireless network as the AllShare Hub;
- Finally, navigate to the Settings of the phone and select the Screen Mirroring option.
With these simple instructions, you can basically screen mirror from any Samsung Galaxy J5 to any TV. That’s the beauty of working with an AllShare Hub. It goes without saying that, if you already have a Samsung SmartTV, this hub will not be necessary!
