    I have a link to a web page that explains the Wi-Fi direct connection to a fire stick however I'm not allowed to post links yet being a rookie.

    Hope this helps.
    Is this the link?

    This post someone found another "stick" that worked
    I was hoping there would be other ideas, but not much.

    No, though that is an interesting article, as it states mhl will work with the note 5. My understanding was that it does not... the link is



    Just add the w's

    For those that use Google Now and want to go hands free

    You can wake your phone by waving your hand over the screen, then just say "OK Google"

    To enable gesture wakeup go to
    Settings > Accessibility > Dexterity and interaction > Gesture wakeup

    Now set Google Now to open on any screen and your set

    Thanks. That article is from another country and he got his Fire Stick from Germany. I wonder if it's different in the USA. The above poster got theirs to work.

    Right. But do I need wifi?

    Here's what I'm looking to use a roku or fire stick as.

    I'm out in the middle nowhere in my rig. Just got done for the night and wanna watch a movie. Oh darn. No wifi. Can I plug either of these devices into the hdmi plug on my. HITACHI flat screen here in the truck, turn on mirroring on my note 5, have it sync up with either of these devices, hit play on netflix on my phone, and watch it on my tv?

    I'm looking for an alternative the mhl adapter I used to use to stream netflix from my phone to the tv.

    Thanks. Sorry for the long explanation. I just wanted explain how I'm looking to use it.

    Sent from my:

    Beautiful Note V
    64 GB
    Black Sapphire
    Paired with Samsung Gear 2 Neo
    Sprint PCS
    So I turned my wifi router off. Amazon stick gave me the notification that no connection was available. So I turn on the display mirroring on the stick and enabled the screen mirror on my phone and it worked without my homes wifi. It did automatically turn on the WiFi on my phone but assuming that is wifi direct option. So yes. I was able to mirror my phone to the stick without wifi.

    Something I just learned. If you're taking a photo and you need to focus your camera and do not want to touch your screen to create fingerprint smudges, tap the side of the phone. My camera will focus in about 3 seconds on auto, if that long, but if I need to focus it will work by taping the screen or the side. However, if you want to focus on a certain point you are emphasizing in the picture, you will need to tap the screen.
    What do you mean tap the side? I just tried this and I'm not sure I'm doing it right lol

    Thank you Frank! I did not know I could do this. Working like a charm. And using 'trusted places' at home, now my Samsung 'opens sesame'.

    It's better than the screen knock on my Nexus.

    Found 2 new tips with the Spen that I thought I'd share in case someone else doesn't know.

    Double tap the screen to bring up an Action Memo. When I'm using the Spen, like a word search game, but have moved the options up and deleted then so it's off my screen, I can do this and it's quick and easy. Won't interfere with my game, too much. Yes you can click the pen and choose Action Memo, but this is easier, I think.

    You can play with cropped photos. If you choose the Lasso and choose, say, the head of your cat, you can put it on your dog's body. I was thinking this might work when Photo Grid doesn't do what I want with multiple photos to share.

    S Pen Ink notes integration with Desktop Apps with GN5

    Findings in experimenting with S Note sync to Samsung App (Samsung account) and Evernote:
    • Samsung S Note Desktop App is slow and ink has huge lags when updating notes
    • S Notes synced to Evernote are just screen shot images of the S Note - not dynamic


    Experimenting with GN5 OneNote Mobile integration to DeskTop OneNote
    • Sync is Fast
    • Ink inputted into your note on the phone STAYS as INK in the Desktop OneNote App
    • Very tight integration - More capable than S Note integration


    Two Images below:
    1. Evernote's static bitmap of the S Note from the phone
    2. OneNote's dynamic "live ink" integration of the Mobile OneNote now integrated into Desktop

    Attachment 192675

    Attachment 192676

    Two More Images:
    1. S Note on the phone
    2. OneNote on the phone

    Attachment 192677

    Attachment 192679

    Bottom line for me: There is a hugely effective solution in the tight and dynamic ink integration of notes between the Galaxy Note 5 and Desktop when using OneNote Mobile and OneNote Desktop.

    Well done Microsoft and Samsung - this is a huge winner!
    So are you saying to take notes in OneNote mobile to sync or take note in S Note and sync it to OneNote?

    Take notes in OneNote. The notes will sync automatically across all devices, including "ink" notes.

    2 things:

    1. On "Ok Google" there is no need to waive your hand via that setting ie no need to set that if you go to Google Settings app and make OK Google a trusted voice. Now you can unlock phone with OK Google and ask away.

    2. If you connect via Bluetooth to your car or use headphones, and you like music, go to sound in the settings section and select tube amp under sound effects. This is a hidden gem. Perhaps it's just my ear but the bass sound is spectacular with that setting. Whatever they did the deep bass sounds quite good when I blast Spotify in my car over Bluetooth with that tube amp sound effect selected. It's always on now.

    Now that you mention it, ok Google is not unlocking the phone despite my setting it as a trusted device.

    My "OK Google" works when the phone is locked, but it doesn't unlock the phone. If I ask a question, like the weather or sports score, it'll answer, but if I ask it to do something like open an app, it'll tell me, "I can't do that when the phone is locked." If I unlock quick enough, though, it'll open the app for me.

    I have the s planner app on my home screen. Also have widget on a different screen... But if I have to make a quick note for a day while on the phone I can click the S planner app and hold the date I want for a couple of seconds with the S-pen, and I will be able to jot an appointment or whatever into that date.

    Like, you literally just lightly tap the side of the phone and it'll focus? I've got a case with a TPU bumper on it so that may be why I didn't notice anything. I just tried doing it with the case off and I think it was focusing? Lol
