Two methods to connect your Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) Android smartphone to the TV

Using a HDMI Cable

This is the simplest method, since you only need an HDMI cable. It will depend on the type of mobile device, some already bring the micro HDMI port , but in other cases it will be necessary to use an MHL micro USB to HDMI converter , such as the above image, which has cost about 8 euros.

All you have to connect the cable to your Android and the TV, and look for the HDMI source with the TV remote. Once done, you will have the screen of your smartphone or tablet on your TV and you can see games, apps, videos and your favorite content on the big screen.

by WiFi

To connect your smartphone to the TV wirelessly, two things are necessary. First, your TV must have WiFi option, something we find virtually any SmartTV today. On the other hand, your phone must also have multiple function display. If you are sure that accounts with both options, just follow these steps:

  1. Through the source of your TV, find the wireless display option. 
  2. Start multi - screen option on your smartphone. Once inside, your phone will start searching for other devices that are connected to the WiFi network through this function. Here you must select your TV. 
  3. Once the two devices are recognized, the screen of your smartphone appear on the TV.

There are also some applications where you need not follow these steps because they can connect to the TV automatically. This occurs with numerous video and image applications, such as YouTube or your phone gallery.

In these applications you will find an icon with two screens or a screen and connecting a WiFi signal. Clicking on this button, you'll find all the devices connected to your network. You have to choose your TV and the app in question will appear on the screen.

Has anyone tried the HDMI way because other websights say it won't work with the Samsung j7?

  • Retrieve a Samsung Galaxy All Share Cast hub. This device allows you to view the contents of your Galaxy phone on your TV screen via a wireless connection. You can buy it on the Internet or in an electronics store. You can also use a Samsung Blue Ray player with functionality All Share Cast.
  • Configure your wireless hub All Share Cast. Whether you use the hub or Blue Ray player, you must connect it to the TV. The hub connects to the TV via an HDMI cable. The Blue Ray should have a compatible cable. Once your device is connected, follow the instruction manual to connect to your Wi-Fi network.

You can use Chromecast, which costs about 35 euros. We devoted an entire folder , which I invite you to read. Know that other certified devices "Chromecast" you can now be marketed.

Another alternative is to connect the phone to the TV via a cable. You will acquire a Samsung MHL-HDMI TV adapter that allows to stream 1080p HD video while charging the phone.

The HDMI-MHL adapter converts USB micro-MHL port Galaxy Note 3 standard HDMI output. This accessory is not included with the Galaxy Note 3, but you'll find it in specialty shops for a few euros. It is also necessary to acquire an HDMI cable to make the connection between the MHL adapter and HDMI TV. This solution is simple, inexpensive, highly effective but not always practical given the cable that connects the phone to the TV!
