    I had high hopes that I could get on plain old screen mirroring on my S8+. Alas, there is no “Screen Mirroring” option, only “Smart View”, which connects to my 3 year-old Samsung in theory, but then I have to run Allcast, which then makes me choose what type of information I wish to share with the TV. My old LG G3 was better at this!
