Two methods to connect your Samsung Galaxy A5 (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.

The first thing to do is go to the settings menu of your phone. From there we enter the section "Display". Inside we should have an option that puts Cast. Click on it and a new screen appears. Then press the physical button or touch options (three vertical dots) on the screen.

Then we will get an option called "Enable wireless display". Select it and wait a few seconds for the connector to detect it. If your television is connected to the same WiFi network we should appear in the list. We select from the list that appears on the TV and set us. Whether it is configured.
If we have done everything right, we mobile screen appears on the TV. No need to do any additional configuration. As we have said before, just make sure that our phone has installed Android version 4.4 KitKat  or high versions and the TV supports Miracast.

DLNA is fine to play videos on TV and listen to music on a mobile stereo or a sound bar equipment. However, if we want to display the entire desktop phone on the big screen, as it is seen in our mobile, then the recommended option passes the Miracast standard.

Miracast is a protocol that allows sending a link via WiFi Direct screen mobile in real time to a compatible TV or monitor time. It came with Android 4.2 and need to operate mobile or tablet offers this possibility and TV have WiFi and compatible.

It allows wirelessly transmits audio and video content to Full HD quality and 5.1 audio to a compatible TV or projector that will display our mobile cloned. Although the generic name is Miracast technology, companies often camouflaging it under other names, such as Samsung and AllShare Cast.
