How to Convert Your Smartphone to a Desktop Computer

There are various reasons why you might want to convert your smartphone into a PC, such as connecting it to a monitor/TV, a keyboard, and a mouse. You'd want to play Android games on a larger screen; maybe you've got a lot of important documents on your phone that require greater attention; and so on. Furthermore, today's smartphones are incredibly powerful, and they're rarely used to their full potential. That's why we're here to assist you!

Why would you spend money on a new desktop computer when you already have one in your possession? With only a few tweaks and a lot less money, you can conduct a variety of essential and interesting tasks on your phone's hardware, just like you would on a laptop or desktop PC!

Here are the devices you'll need to turn your smartphone into a desktop computer:

·         Keyboard and mouse with Bluetooth connectivity

·         Alternatively, A USB keyboard and mouse, as well as a USB-OTG cable.

·         A display with wireless HDMI or screen mirroring capabilities.

Let's look at some of the options for finishing the job:

Using Chromecast

It's also quite simple to use Chromecast. A USB or Bluetooth-connected keyboard and mouse, as well as a Chromecast or other screen-mirroring solution, are necessary. From there, it's all really simple: simply connect the keyboard and use the screen mirroring feature to share your display over Chromecast.


DeX (Samsung users)

Samsung users can activate the DeX feature directly from their phone's notification tray, which is a highly convenient option. However, not all Samsung phones will work; you'll need a Galaxy S8, S8+, Note 8, or a newer model. Once you have a Samsung phone like this, all you have to do is connect it to a nearby wireless HDMI-ready display, plug in your input devices, and you're ready to go!
