Android devices are great, but their small size can sometimes be restrictive. When you connect your device to a projector, you can share your screen with others for business or pleasure. Here are a few ways to do this.
If you do not have a projector, you can also connect Android to a TV. Projectors, however, are the better option because they normally project a much larger screen size than a TV, making them ideal for playing media or data presentations.
