Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone & Lenovo A10 Tablet HDMI Lead Cable

Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone & Lenovo A10 Tablet HDMI Lead Cable

Your looking for a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Lenovo A10 tablet HDMI cable, so that you can connect it to the TV or a monitor.  Unfortunately, no matter how many cables you have tried you either the cable connection does not fit your device or after you connect the cable the picture does not show on the TV.

The reason for not being able to connect the cable or get a picture onto the TV is that neither the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the Lenovo A10 can output video via a cable.

Devices like the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium which or connects to the TV via a MHL adapter cable and the Tesco Hudl 2 tablet which has a HDMI out can connect to the TV using a HDMI micro cable.

The reason that some devices do not have the video out capability could be to with making the devices more battery efficient and smaller in size.

Is there a way to connect the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Lenovo A10 to the TV?

Fortunately it is possible to mirror your Samsung Galaxy S6 and Lenovo A10 onto the television.  There are actually a number of methods of doing so, and they all use wifi to do so.  Let go through your options.
