I’ve been watching Crunchyroll on my phone which comes in handy when I’m not home. The screen is a bit small which leads to eye strain after prolonged use. I was curious about using the phone’s HDMI. The Samsung Droid Charge (SCH-i510) comes with a HDMI port. You’ll need a HDMI to HDMI Type D (micro) cable. The micro HDMI resembles your phone’s micro USB cable. You’ll also need a 1080 capable HDTV.
Initially, I purchased a Sigmac 15″ HDTV (480-1080i) for my phone however no video appeared. The TV flashed 1080i once hooked up but no picture. Then I purchased a Samsung T22B350ND 21.5″ LED. It worked fine. I was watching Squid Girl on a TV screen 5 times bigger than my phone’s with easy to read subtitles.
Don’t expect 1080 HDMI quality. It’s not even DVD quality. It sort of looks like a low resolution YouTube video with jagged lines and pixelation. The only purpose the HDMI serves is to screen capture your phone and enlarge it to your TV screen.
