How to connect a Projector to Mobile Phones

Hey, people of the internet! You might be looking to connect your projector to a mobile phone. The projector you own may be old and it doesn’t have the ability to connect via wifi as new projectors have. In your smartphone, there are lots of memories you have shot and maybe it has a Netflix subscription active and you want to see it on a bigger display. In this tutorial, I am using a YG-300 mini projector and an OnePlus 8 Pro Smartphone.

There are two methods you can connect your android phone or iPhone to a projector, If your mobile has a USB Type-c port connect using a USB Type-C to HDMI cable. The only bad thing about the cable connection, you need to hook the mobile anywhere closer to the projector and you can’t be able to move the phone. There is a risk of the phone falling if you are put the phone above the projector.

The 2nd method is to get a Wireless Display Dongle, it’s almost the same or less price than a cable and it allows to connect a projector to mobile phones wirelessly. Not only projectors, but you can also be able to connect your phone to a TV or and computer display. In the market the best wireless display dongle is Chromecast, but it’s too expensive. Better you can check the alternative called AnyCast dongle.

Here you can get the AnyCast Wireless Display Dongle.
