    One thing I love about my current S5 and my old S3 is the ability to use an MHL adaptor to plug the phone into a non-smart TV and mirror whatever I put on the phone screen to the tv. I use it a lot.

    I hear that the S6 dropped support for MHL, and the various hdmi wireless dongles it can cast to require a good fast wifi network or else you get dropped frames and out of sync audio. Not good.

    I really don't want to lose this ability if I upgrade to the S7. Can anyone guess what solutions will be available for the S7?

    I am confused. My S6 mirrors to both All Share Cast and in some cases Apple TV. Is there something I'm missing?

    There are some third party apps that support screen mirroring, so..

    With my S5, I can use the MHL adapter to plug it physically into a TV HDMI port

    But if I get the S7, the MHL adapter will not work and I'll have to get some kind of wireless dongle like an Allshare Cast HUB, or a Chromecast, or something similar. I hear those all stream over the local wifi so if you want to share the the whole phone screen you need good wifi. So not very good for a hotel room TV for instance.

    Are there any particular setups that work well for the S6, that might work on the S7 too?
