Samsung MHL 2.0 adapter is meant to be used in latest Galaxy Note and S series and it allows users to run full HD 1080p videos at up to 60 FPS. The best part is that you do not require your phone to connect to power source to use it. Also this HDTV adapter is fully backwards compatible with Galaxy S3 and Note 2 that have only MHL 1.0 support.
I tested it with Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3 and it worked without plugging in its charging cable. It works the same way for the Note 4 and S5, that is without charger.
We also have the Note 2 in office and it worked fine too. You just have to use a charger along with the MHL cable.
You can plugin the MHL HDTV cable into any HDMI port of your television. Just ensure you select the correct HDMI port in settings of TV. Another thing to keep in mind is any incoming call or messages freezes the media output. However the media will restart after interrupted after call is complete.
The Samsung MHL 2.0 HDTV Adapter supports full 1080P 60 FPS playback on Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3 and Note 4. You can also play games on big TV screen. In fact we connected a wireless controller with our Note 3 and all worked wonderfully. It transformed my Galaxy device into a portable play station.
Of course you can use it for serious work as well. It was a joy to use big screen for showing off power point slides, excel files and so on.
With Samsung MHL 2.0 HDTV Adapter, you can convert your Galaxy device into a computer by connecting Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. You can then surf the Internet from your bed or couch.
Verdict – The Samsung MHL 2.0 HDTV Adapter is a must have accessory for any Galaxy owner. It immediately makes your TV smart by mirroring your phone display to a much bigger screen.
