Full HD or 4K TV is the current trend. You see almost every new household has a Smart TV in their living room. Some of them even are trying to convert old tvs into Smart TVs. With Smart TVs, you can watch all your favorite content by connecting your smartphone or tablet to the appropriate port. In this article, we will discuss how to connect your Samsung galaxy note 5 to tv with an HDMI cable.
Steps to Connect Note 5 To Tv With Hdmi Cable
Connecting your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to an HDTV with an HDMI cable is simple. If you’re using a Samsung Smart TV, then you can use the built-in functionality. Otherwise, you’ll need a third-party app like AllCast.
If your TV has an HDMI input, connect the phone to your TV with a micro-HDMI to HDMI cable, also known as an MHL cable. You can buy this from your cell provider or from Amazon for around $10.
On your Note 5, go to Settings > Display > Screen mirroring and enable the device for screen mirroring.
You will see the following message: “Allow screen mirroring? This may harm the device.” Tap OK.
Go to Settings > Display and look under “Screen Mirroring” to make sure that it’s currently enabled. If not, tap on it and choose Enable Screen Mirroring. Your phone is now mirrored onto your HDTV!
Does Note 5 have HDMI?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 can connect to a television using the MHL 3.0 or SlimPort standard. You need a TV that supports the HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1 Type C, and Display Port 1.2 standards, but if you find one this will allow you to connect your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 directly to your TV.
This way you can mirror what is on your screen to the big screen (including your desktop), listen to music from your phone on your home theater system and even play games on the big screen.
Does the Note 5 support MHL?
It would be great if I knew the answer to this question, but I don’t.
It’s possible that MHL is not supported on the Note 5 because it has a USB 2.0 port instead of a USB 3.0 port. The Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge + all support MHL 3.0, which allows for 4K video output at 60 fps and 5.1 surround sound audio output over an HDMI cable.
This would be a major oversight on Samsung’s part, so I highly doubt that’s why the Note 5 doesn’t support MHL 3.0. However, if you find any definitive proof as to whether or not it does or does not support MHL, please leave a comment and enlighten me.
