    I'm needing to find something as well... My wife obliterated her S7 screen and I need to pull stuff off of it without using the phone screen... I bought an adapter that worked for the s4 hoping it might work but no dice...

    I also cracked my Samsung Galaxy S7 screen after only purchasing the phone less than a week. The AT&T salesperson transferred everything from my edge to s7 but I had not logged in to my google acct to back everything up. The edge was reset as well. So all my files, pics contacts are gone.. I have contacted many, many Samsung techs. I've purchased and tried so many various MHL and not compatible or supported. There is no current support for S6,S7 through MHL OR OTG cables at this time. What I did find out is that if u have ever connected your phone to your laptop or pc you may have access to your files by because you have set that up. Meaning peremissions have been established. Also. I connected a USB mouse to the S7 and I was able to unlock my phone, but cant allow permissions, bcuz i cant see where to click and had never debugged previ. Maybe this will work for. It did not work for me because I had never connected it to the computer before. And I can't see what's on the s7 screen to allow permission. But I heard this could work for someone who has set up with pc. I am not a tech just really determinedon't to find a loop hole. Good luck. !!
    If anybody finds a way please post.!!!

    Not sure if this has been answered somewhere else already but I currently have my s7 edge connected to my monitor at work using a USB to HDMI adapter I picked up from radio shack Link. There is an app that needs installed on the phone before you can use it however located here Link. With a cracked screen you should be able to install it over the linked website. The frame rate is not great and it's kind of a battery hog, but it does work in a pinch.

    If you have a duplicate phone you can also figure out the keystrokes and carefully placed single click required to cast your screen to a chrome cast too. That's what I did for my wife's S7. You can use a USB hub and plug it in using the USB adapter that comes with the phone so you can plug a mouse and keyboard in.

    I can confirm that Samsung's MHL 3.0 to HDMI adapter does NOT work with the Galaxy S7 - the micro USB plug is non-standard and does not fit into the S7 socket. I normally use the adapter to connect my Galaxy Tab S2 to a non-MHL monitor.
    I was able to cut the adapter plug down a little so it would register and connect to the S7, but it would only charge when a charger was plugged into the adapter, but wouldn't display on the tv

    How well does it really work. Would streaming netflix work or is it to laggy, don't want to spend $60 for something that doesn't work right. And your link for the app display link doesn't work. It's called display link presenter now

    What you are looking for is the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter v2. It works great with the Galaxy Edge S7 (it should also work for the Regular S7 and any other WiDi Miracast device). I just enable Smart View through the notifications shortcut and it automatically connects to the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter v2. It does not need a separate router or internet to mirror your screen. It establishes an ad-hoc wifi network that your phone connects to.

    There's no hdmi out. Not sure about the netgear
    Net gear definitely works. That's what my wife and I use until we get our smart TV.

    Thanks for this information! My husband broke my brand new Samsung S7 Edge's screen in a fit of rage, and I could not figure out how to get my photos and data off the phone until I read your post. SideSync worked great, and it was an easy and quick install and process for saving my phone's files onto my laptop.

    Hopefully, I will never need to use it again for that particular reason...

    How did you get SideSync installed on your S7 with the broken screen or was it an app that you had already installed? I'm in that boat right now where I can install it on the PC, but not on the phone itself.

    Can confirm that Lenovo's DisplayLink (AN9017A1) works with My Samsung Galaxy S7. It requires the "DisplayLink" app. Sound did NOT work, tried with DVI-D and DVI-D Dual Link cable. I think that any DisplayLink device will work with S7/S7 Edge. Other devices might work with sound... If you want to buy an adapter, try to find one with a slim cable so it does not jiggle the plug too much... If anyone knows of a DisplayLink device that also works with sound, please let us know. Thanks!

    I also have the Microsoft Display Adapter. It works with my S7, but I sometimes have a hard time connecting (I have to attempt several times or unplug/replug). Once it works though, it works. It will eat your WiFi bandwidth (does NOT need to be connected to WiFi, but like OP said, it creates an ad-hoc server) so don't expect to download quickly simultaneously. I use this to watch downloaded .mp4 files on a 32" Samsung TV (not a smart TV). If you buy this and initially can't connect, you may have to connect a windows PC to it so you can upgrade the firmware on the Display Adapter. I had to.

    Not the best $50 I've spent, but I can't find a good USB to HDMI option, so this is what I've got. I hope this helps someone.
