Question: Can I mirror Android phone to TV when my phone doesn't support MHL?
Answer: The answer is yes.
Till now for Android phone to TV screen mirroring there are 2 technologies: Miracast and MHL. Miracast is to mirror Android screen to TV with WiFi. The Android phone should support Miracast as a Miracast sender, while at the TV/projector end, there should be an either external Miracast dongle or built-in Miracast module as the Miracast receiver. That means, both the phone and the TV should be Miracast enabled.
MHL is to mirror Android phones to TV/projector through a MHL to HDMI cable. In this way both the Android phone/tablet PC and the TV should be MHL supported. So comes the question above-what if no MHL support? Still yes since we developed the Android to TV HDMI cable adapters, you can still mirror with cable without MHL support. You can have the MicroUSB port to connect to smartphone/tablet PC, and HDMI connector to TV/projector, USB connector to power charger, then simple setting. It just works!
