Connecting Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 to HDMI without activating Dex

I own a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and it's quite good except for Samsung's software, which I would qualify as bloatware without hesitation.

I bought a cable that is able to move signal from USB-C ports to HDMI ports, and I connected my tablet to my TV using that cable.

The problem arrives when Samsung, in all its wisdom, refuses to just stream my screen, and insists on starting this Frankenstein thing of Dex. Even if the idea seems good, its execution is very poor, and all the software running on it becomes highly unstable, crashing all the time (when it does not have any problems running in basic mode).

And that's why I'm looking for some way to send my tablet screen to my TV while avoiding to activate Dex.

As an extra, I also considered using something like Chromecast Ultra, and in fact I did, but its streaming quality is just a disaster, and looses a lot of quality (hence my intention to go with simple cables).

Thank you for your attention.

The Galaxy S6 does come with some built-in screen mirroring features. However, this doesn’t mean that you can always rely on the default service to get things done.

Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge - How to Mirror My Screen to My TV or PC

To mirror your phone to a bigger screen, you may need third-party apps, and you should also make sure that the proper conditions are met between your phone and your TV or computer. Here is what you need to know about screen mirroring on a Galaxy S6.

First Prepare Your Devices for Mirroring

Before mirroring your phone to your TV, there are two important things to consider. First of all, make sure that your smart TV is connected to a Wi-Fi network and that the Wi-Fi isn’t turned off.

Then, take your phone and make sure that it is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your TV. If it’s not, you won’t be able to establish a connection between the two.

How to Enable Screen Mirroring

  1. Swipe Control Panel
  2. Tap the Edit icon in the top right corner (next to Settings)
  3. Tap Screen Mirroring
  4. Select your TV from the list

At this point your TV screen should show a message asking you for permissions. Use your remote to accept and then wait for the connection to be established.

Note that this works with a Samsung Smart TV and the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and newer models.

How to Mirror to TV with Google Home

If you’re using Chromecast or another wireless adapter that has Android compatibility, you can also connect your phone to that device in order to mirror your screen to your TV.

You can do this by using the Google Home app. Go to the Google Play store to download and install the app. Once on your phone, log in using your Google credentials.

The app is similar to the Chrome browser in terms of interface. Here is how you can start casting:

How to Mirror to a PC or Mac

  1. Install Team Viewer on your computer

@Linda  Many laptops have USB-C ports that support video output these days.  The same is true of at least some tablets.  The iPad models that have USB-C ports support video output, for example.  But this capability is less common on tablets and especially on smartphones as compared to laptops, I suspect at least partly because smartphone and tablets have historically relied on wireless "casting" to external displays rather than a cabled connection so that the device doesn't have to remain anchored to the display.  Displays with USB-C are indeed the way of the future, especially for people who will be using such displays with laptops, where the additional benefit of providing power to the attached device means the display can essentially act as a docking station for laptops without having to buy a docking station.  Dell even has some USB-C displays now that include Ethernet, which can be used by a laptop attached by USB-C, because Ethernet is still important in business settings, and therefore a display that can provide an Ethernet connection to an attached system may completely eliminate the need for a separate docking station in many common desk setups.

But displays also tend to be connected to laptops and desktops much more often than to tablets and smartphones.  If your use case will primarily involve using a Android-based tablets and smartphones as source devices, you might want to look into something like the Microsoft Wireless Display adapter.  It plugs into the HDMI input of any display/TV, and then you just need to connect it to a USB port or wall charger for power.  At that point it acts as a wireless display receiver that supports Miracast, which is supported on Android devices (and Windows devices).
