    I have been researching ways to hook my phone up to my TV and be able to stream netflix. I have read a few different ways, but others disagree. I do not have WiFi at my house, but I do have an unlimited data plan with 5gb hotspot. Is there a way to hook my phone up to my TV or even my ps4 so I can stream Netflix using my phones data and not my hotspot?

    Welcome to Android Central! If you have a compatible TV, try Quick Connect as described here: Use the Quick Connect™ Feature to Connect the Note 5 with Nearby Devices

    You could also look into using Samsung's HDTV Smart Adapter: Galaxy Note 5 - How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to my TV using an HDMI cable?. Unfortunately, Samsung did not include compatibility with MHL, which is a very common HDMI adapter standard--you have to use their proprietary adapter.

    Thank you, this has been the most clear answer I have came by. Do you think that the samsung all share will do the same thing, or is that the same device?

    I don't think the Allshare Cast Hub is compatible. The product site only specifies compatibility with the Galaxy S3, Note 2, Note 8.0, and Note 10.1: WiFi Allshare Cast Wireless Hub (HDMI or HDTV) - Samsung UK.

    Does chrome cast not require a Internet connection? I read that it's kind of laggy. Do you have that issue?

    I do have a wifi connection with Internet. So it may go through the wifi. But the phone streams to the chrome cast. It may not be a direct wifi connection though.

    Oh ok. I do not have WiFi at my house. So i need to make sure i buy something that doesn't require wifi..besides maybe for the initial set up where I can use my hot spot.

    I played around with this when I first purchased my Note 5.
    I started of with Microsoft WiFi adapter for a true wireless setup. Unfortunately, it worked with every device that I tried, except the Note 5 (currently it is being used on my wife's TV and her phone/ tablet) . Supposedly it will work with a firmware update but I don't currently have a machine to complete the upgrade.
    They have since come out with a new version but I don't know if it supports the Note 5.
    My next thought was to pick up an earlier Note 2-3 or 4 with an accompanying Samsung Smart Dock. This would give an USB out, for adding an external Hard drive, an HDMI out and an audio out.
    I finally went with the Fire TV with a Prime account but I have an in house WiFi network, so I took the easy route.

    Thank you for all of that info. I have looked into the fire stick as well. I've been reading about the screenbeam 2. I have read that it works well with a note 5. Walmart has them for 55 and Amazon has it for 29. I may try that route. I just don't want to waste time or money lol
