The Best Miracast Smartphones As Of January 2020

The Latest Miracast Smartphones 2020/2019


Want to avoid the hassles of HDMI cables or setting up home wireless networks? A Miracast-enabled smartphone might just be the device you are looking for. Miracast is a technology that actively streams your smartphone's contents onto a compatible TV -- basically HDMI, but without the cables, but took a certain hit with the introduction of Android 7.0 Nougat, which, according to most reports, appears to have disabled it (And, indeed, we were unable to find it on our Nougat smartphone).

The technology came mid-2012, and was picked up by Google shortly after the Jelly Bean 4.2 update. Because some phone makers adopted Miracast earlier, this list includes several Xperia models from Sony, all of which offer DLNA as well. Unlike DLNA, however, Miracast does not require any home network. It is based on WiFi Direct, allowing compatible devices to directly create a paired connection, just like Bluetooth (but with much more possibilities). Many Miracast smartphones sport big batteries of 3000mAh or more because Miracast is a pretty power-hungry feature.

To avoid confusion over compatibility issues, this list includes smartphones (the Android Miracast smartphones run version 4.2 or later) that specifically mention a built-in Miracast technology.

    Did you know that there are several alternatives that allow you to stream (and even record) your phone's screen content?

    DLNA, a wireless system that works over your home network, is one such possibility. But HDMI is clearly one of them too, and the most popular. HDMI pins used to be too large for mobile devices, but mini- and micro-ports made the HDMI smartphone generation a possibility. Make sure you check out our discovery gallery of the latest smartphone models to get a quick overview of all the possibilities you could be missing if you buy a smartphone with your eyes closed!
