This gizmo was how. Or, I suppose if I had a Samsung branded 'Smart TV', or one with similar Android pairing built in, that would've worked.
Anyway, where this succeeded and my 'Chromecast' failed is that this device pretends to be its own specialized fake 'hot spot' (compatible with 'Screen Mirroring' on my Android phone), and doesn't assume it's connected to a 'hot spot' with its own separate internet connection. If you stream something like Netflix 'to' a Chromecast, it fails because my phone acts like a remote control for the Chromecast to stream data off the internet connection that it assumes my WiFi router has. Which isn't true for me because the phone is the internet connection, and only has one WiFi radio, which is either busy trying to be bridged to a router, or streaming what is displayed on the phone, but can't do both.
Practical upshot is without any other hardware or fiddling around with anything, I got my cartoons and netflix junk to play on my older, 'not smart' TV.
Lag: I found that streaming web video has about a three second delay. Streaming netflix is almost instant. It varies by app and source. It would be borderline usable for being a wireless monitor, but always being a little behind what you're typing, or doing on the phone screen is annoying. For streaming video, none of this matters. Streaming non-HD video, it seems smooth and the audio is OK.
By 'Non-HD', I mean you're probably not getting 1080p over your phone's data, no matter how many 'G' it has, nor smoothly over WiFi. I found that Netflix and video sites work fine, and fills the screen in the right aspect. But you're probably going to be watching '360p' (640x360 - like 720p (1920x720), only 1/4 as many pixels) or 480p (720x480 - like NTSC) video. If you don't have ridiculous expectations, it works great. It fills the screen. It looks crisp. Televised text and scores are legible. Stephen Colbert's big fuzzy hat looks fine. It's just not 'HD'.
It was pretty easy to set up. It comes with a USB power adapter, but the USB cable can be plugged into a TV with a USB port (same way as a Chromecast). Plug in HDMI. Try to connect, when it 'fails', press the button on the little box and connect again. Successfully paired, and you don't have to dink with it anymore. I guess this extra step is so you don't walk into an electronics store and take over a monitor without permission (where this mirroring is built in).
Anyways, this conflicts with 'WiFi Hot Spot' (as I mentioned, there's ONE WiFi radio in a phone). If you want to play video and browse the web on another PC, you'll need to use wired tethering.
I have just received mine, watched some of the many YouTube vids on how easy it is and got all answered as it works as advertised:
OVERVIEW - [ I am running SPRINT, Note II, wife has new S6 Edge, all Samsung ]
- You don't need WiFi on phone, local, or other hot spots to make this work: the All-share has its own, built in 'private wifi' network of sorts that sync with the Samsung feature called SCREEN MIRRORING.
- Engaging the Screen Mirroring is this way : SETTINGS --> SCREEN MIRRORING --> On
- You generally do these steps to make this work
1. plug in the All-Share
2. light goes red indicating on
3. plug in HDMI cable from All-Share to TV
4. All-Share RESET BUTTON --> PRESS --> Go to next step within 10-20 seconds or you'll need to repeat 4-5 again till right.
5. PHONE: SETTINGS --> SCREEN MIRRORING --> ON
6. Follow the setup codes as they appear on screen, it'll step you through it.
7. All-Share light goes to BLUE
- works in phone rotation mode : I like landscape for a more regular presentation
- vol on phone is not enough so you'll need to boost TV's vol. REMEMBER [oh, you'll always forget] to adjust vols on both devices when not connected this way: RIGHT, NOT. you'll always blast yourself.
- quick, easy, and REFLECTS ALL on your phone to the connected TV : ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.
share pics, apps, games, TV, movies, YouTube, PANDORA ... whatever whatever to a larger screen
- can take ANYWHERE as it needs no other network interface other than your phone.
- BETTER than ChromeCast which I also purchased [Best Buy steered me wrong] ChromeCast requires a separate, working, WiFi network.
I was waiting for Xfinity to be installed [needed a trench] and had no options other than Web. So, wife's phone needed to broadcast her movie to ChromeCast on her phone while I engaged MY WiFi HotSpot on my phone to create the necessary network for her phone and ChromeCast to communicate: See, Sprint's version of Hot Spot cannot have WiFi running at the same time, you can only be a broadcaster, so when Hot Spot is on, your WiFi turns off. As soon as I turned on the Hot Spot and then tried to beam movies using my connect to ChromeCast, the Hot Spot would shut off when it tried to beam using my WiFi... and vice versa: It was a no win. Convoluted but we did get it to work.
- All-Share has a 'private WiFi' of sorts and no need for other devices.
ChromeCast ONLY works with specific apps, not all, like XFINITY on Demand, but the All-Share does!!! it does with anything on your phone, you are just MIRRORING the device to a larger display and speaker format.
- CONTROLS remain on your phone for the app/software being used. It now becomes a 'remote control' of sorts.
Not a fan of extended warranties, as this was basically a low price point anyway.
Must have: Sharing pics for family on a larger format or whatever on larger format is easy with this.
ChromeCast DOES seem to work better for the apps it supports [Netflix etc.] but, hey, this is a must have.
PS: Screen delay is minimal. IF your reception on your phone is lagging or has refreshes, that's not a problem of the All-Share, but your connectivity.
UPDATE: Dec 3, 2015: One thing to note, IF you have problems with your device, no matter how new, it is most likely the operating system update from android. I've noticed the ease in which un-altered [read factory settings and software] made this a ease to connect, BUT a newer NOTE II had issues. It kept saying "new software downloaded, you will need to reboot to use" when I rebooted it was still a no go. Frustrating for that device. Still not resolved and is a bug. I've read on the Internet that the fix is to RESET TO FACTORY DEFAULTS but THAT will wipe out all on your phone causing you to re-install all your apps, pictures etc etc etc :( PAIN. Since we are using tablets mostly for sharing pics etc on the TV this isn't an issue, because these tablets were 'free' from SPRINT. Key to keeping them 'free' is to put into AIRPLANE mode and NOT connect using the provided CELL service and their data use plan. We use WIFI only in the house for Web etc. and the connections are free doing it that way [think Starbucks using their WIFI and not your cell].
