Note : Following Samples were tested with a dlna Certified App named Skifta
Works smoothly, I didn’t see any lags or frame skipping, playing 1080P video samples in MX Player. Browsing the internet in mirroring mode also worked fast without any glitches.
In DLNA Mode there were a few seconds buffering right to start when I played high birthrate video samples, but it’s more related to the distance from my hotspot and bandwidth usage with DLNA technology. Highly recommended using the EZMirror (Miracast) option that consumes less bandwidth and resources.
Products general quality is very high and performs well as specified by manufacturer.
