  • Samsung Galaxy S8: How Do I Connect It to a Projector?

    The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have finally been released after months of hype, and happy tech fans are enjoying its revolutionary new features, such as a Quad HD display, facial recognition and iris scanner. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is packed with features, however there is one key feature missing from the new phone: MHL compatibility.

    If you didn't know, MHL allows you to use an MHL-HDMI cable to connect your phone to a projector, or other HD display such as your HDTV. Samsung removed MHL compatibility in their S7 range and it hasn't returned for the Galaxy S8 as the company moves towards wireless connectivity. Quite ironic that the company used projectors in their launch event (see above) for the phone that can't connect to any projector via a standard cable!

    Luckily, there are ways to get around this. If your projector doesn't have WiFi built in, you can simply pick up a wireless mirroring dongle with a Miracast function that you can stick into the HDMI port of your projector (products like the Acer C200 have powered HDMI ports too, so you won't need to have your dongle hooked up to power)!. After that, you can wirelessly cast to your projector from your shiny new Galaxy S8 whether you're connected to WiFi or not!

    An even easier method is to get a projector with WiFi and Miracast built in, such as the awesome Pico Genie M550 Plus. This means you enable the Miracast setting on your projector and your phone should detect the projector in your Quick Connect settings. Just one tap and you're connected, without any need for expensive cables, or to be connected to WiFi.


    If you're looking for a portable projector to use with your new Samsung Galaxy S8, for ease of use and quality, the top of the range right now is the Pico Genie M550 Plus.

There is no need to worry about battery life either as it will last for up to 2 hours which puts it leagues ahead of the competition.

The Pico Genie P100 also has a uniquely designed mini tripod which is half the size of normal mini tripods, it is ultra-lightweight and perfectly weighted and very easy to carry!

    Another unique feature is the ability to power your Smartphone and portable devices through the inbuilt USB port so you don’t have to worry about running out of power. Overall, this compact and powerful handheld LED projector is great for sharing photos and video on the big screen from portable devices with friends and family, or even for impromptu, novel presentations at home or in the office.

    Why not power this projector for even longer with an Energizer XP8000 battery which can provide several extra hours of entertainment, works with your projector, music players, phones, cameras and more!
