    Hi! Well I am new here, it's first time asking something here...
    I have an Samsung J5 2016 (android 6.0.1 rooted) and some days ago I bought a Samsung Smart TV (UE40MU... something like that) and I want to mirror smartphone screen to TV scree, but I can't... My phone does not have either Smart View / Screen Mirroring either Quick Conncet option. I tried some apps from Google Play but no succes... I succeded with an older Allview phone which have Screen Mirroring option...
    Any ideea without buying anything (eg. Chromecast) and without cables ?
    Will a new Android version (Android 7 custom os) change this (will it add this option) ?
    Please help...
    Sorry for my English, I am not a native speaker.

    No, that's up to the manufacturer - but it should be in Settings, it is in almost all Samsung phones.
    Windows 89 likes this.

    It's me again, I sing up with this account. I know that there should exist such options, but there are not... It does not have either Quick Connect either Smart View... I mean it is J5 **2016** In 2016 I would think that is new and it should have the latest tech options... Could it be something like a country problem ( east europe )?? Any ideea for an app or something that would help me??
    A manual software update (custom os) to Android 7 would not solve the problem, right?
    Thanks so much for helping me, I hope that I will find solution...

    Could this be a rooted device problem? (Maybe)
    Could this be a country problem? (I don't think)
    Anyone that had this problem?
    Any app or update or something that would help?

    It could be a country thing. (It's not a rooting problem either.) It's not a "new technology" thing - my Samsung Note 3 has it, and it's 4 years old.

    Since screen mirroring is a hardware thing, you can't solve it with just software.

    So, in the end,

    is there any solution to solve this without buying a chromecast or something like this?

    First can i make a diy cromecast (using other phone, cables, i don't know)??

    Second any app or new os that would solve this (you said that not, but ...)?

    Third why to be a country problem, isn't my phone like an american or french phone??

    Thank you for helping me... Hope you'll help me in the end...

    Smart view
    Welcome to Android Central! First, this is a 4 year old thread, so it's doubtful that the OP is still following it. Second, did you notice that they also mentioned that their J5 does NOT have Smart View? It's also detailed here: https://www.techjunkie.com/guide/sam...o-my-tv-or-pc/
