    Is there a difference between these 2 cables besides price? Any reason to spend $25 more.

    Here's a link for the off brand. Says 3.1. Anyone have a cheap solution like the cheaper one that works, I'm open. Looking at wanting to watch movies from phone to projectors or televisions.

    With Samsung, the HDMI cable has to match the phone - Samsung has been known to move MHL to different pins on different phones. So if you have a Note 10, look for a cable that specifies Note 10.

    Other than that, I've found that braided cables usually use better quality connectors than Samsung does - and for a lower price. (I have a box full of Samsung cable - I use my braided cables.)

    my experience is that, when it comes to DeX accessories, you should always use Samsung branded items made for DeX. Otherwise, it is a crap shoot.

    In my experience, cable quality does matter, but you don't necessarily need Samsung-branded cables. I have two off-brand USB-C to HDMI cables which I use as DeX cables. One works all the time and on every monitor, the other is a little flaky and fails to work on some monitors and TVs (fortunately it works on my monitor at home, which is why I'm using it for DeX as I type this post). So I could certainly believe that many people have bought cables that didn't work with DeX.

    The reliable cable I mentioned above is made by Cable Matters. It's on Amazon for $16.9, same as the QGeeM one you're considering:
