Method 3: Buy Phone Screen Projector

If you don’t want to install programs on your computer or Android handset, you can opt to buy a phone screen projector. This indeed is leaned towards real hardcore users or professionals looking for a more advanced way of sharing mobile screen. These phone projectors are highly technological gadgets made especially for forensic experts as well as government agencies.

Phone screen projectors are easy to use and they can display phone screen on PC in stunning clarity with high resolution. The major drawback of this is that phone projectors don’t come cheap. Prices can range from few hundreds up to thousands of dollars depending on the device quality.

Method 4: Use Android SDK and Droid@screen

Droid@screen is yet another tool that can display phone screen on computer. It is simple to use and best of all free. With this tool you don’t need to have a rooted phone or pay highly priced mobile apps just to mirror your Android screen on PC. However, it requires a bit of patience and some technical know-how’s.

Droid@screen

  • First download and install Android SDK Tool on your PC.
  • Then download and install Droid@screen on your computer.
  • Make sure that you have the latest version of Java running on your PC but if not, install it first before proceeding with the next step.
  • Enable USB debugging mode on your Android phone.
  • Open Droid@screen on your PC.
  • Enter the location of adb.exe by typing in “C:\Users\Your Account Name\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe”.
  • Attach your Android device on your computer with USB cable to be able to display mobile screen on PC.

The main problem with Droid@screen is that you need to install two different programs on your computer before you can start using its service. Additionally, locating the Android Debug Bridge or adb.exe is somewhat complicated. It is definitely not for non-techie individuals or those with very little knowledge when it comes to file exploration. Also, it doesn’t have extra features but only screen mirroring.

Conclusion:

There are many ways on how to display phone screen on laptop. You can choose from Droid@screen, ApowerMirror, ApowerManager and others. However, ApowerManager is a professional app that transfers data between different devices mostly though it can mirror phone screen on PC. As a result, ApowerMirror is specialized in displaying phone screen on PC and enables users to control Android from PC, which offers the excellent experience.
