Correct cable to mirror my s6?


AC Question

Hello, I'm looking to play content (movies etc) from my phone to a TV (it's not a smart TV)

I have an s8 and recently purchased a USB-C to HDMI cable which worked perfectly...but today I've had to send my phone back to Samsung for a repair 😔

I've reverted back to my S6 edge and looking for a replacement cable which will work the same.

It has to be a cable as the WiFi is not strong enough (it's to be used in a static caravan)

Please help!

Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, the S6 doesn't support MHL or Slimport, which are the two main standards for USB-to-HDMI. So for the S6, you're stuck with wireless mirroring.
