How to connect Android phone to projector via USB

In case your home does not have a wi-fi connection, then you can go for the wired connection. Yes, there are options and those are HDMI and MHL.

HDMI: If your Android device has a mini-HDMI port then you can use a mini-HDMI cable to connect between the mini HDMI port of the device and the HDMI port of the projector. But if you own a USB-C device such as Samsung Galaxy S9, then use a USB-C to HDMI adapter to create the connection between Android and projector.

MHL: If your Android phone supports MHL, then buy MHL to HDMI adapter and connect it to the projector’s HDMI port. That’s it. This way you can enjoy all your Android device’s stuff in the projector.
