How to Use Screen Mirroring on the Samsung Galaxy J5

Watching movies on a smartphone is fun, but it’s not the same as the big-screen experience. Fortunately, it isn’t difficult to both – it’s easy to screen mirror your Galaxy J5 smartphone to your TV so that what plays on the Galaxy J5 screen and audio also plays on the TV. There are two basic approaches to doing this: a hard-wired connection or a wireless connection. In this article I’ll explain how to do both.

Connect Galaxy J5 to TV via a hard-wired connection

Using the hard-wired connection method, you can just plug your phone into the TV via an adapter, and whatever is shown on the Galaxy J5 screen will also display on the TV.

NOTE: If you have an older analogue TV, the addition of a HDMI to composite adapter [3] would allow you to mirror the Galaxy J5 to your TV.

Connect Galaxy J7 to TV via a wireless connection

NOTE: If you use a Samsung SmartTV, you do not need to purchase the Allshare Hub and can just directly mirror the phone to the TV since they already know how to work together.
