All you have to do is enable the screen mirroring on your smartphone and you will your smart TV is devices Tab. Tap on your smart TV and it will start casting your smartphone screen on your smart TV. All Smart TV’s are using Miracast technology, that means not only you can mirror your smartphone screen. You can also mirror your Windows PC screen to a TV.
That is the reason, why all of the mirroring devices are compatible with Android and Windows devices. Although, you won’t find Apple devices in the compatibility list.

While using Miracast, you won’t be needing any wireless connection to mirror your screen. It works the same way as Chromecast does.
This is also a cheap and working solution, instead of buying a SmartTV, you should buy AnyCast dongle. AnyCast can be bought from Amazon and you can consider it the cheapest ChromeCast Alternate. Moreover, you will see on the box of AnyCast that it supports Airplay/DLNA/Miracast. Meaning, you will be able to cast your iOS devices screen to your TV.

There are two downsides to AnyCast, one it is using Miracast standards that is why you won’t be able to use few apps. The other one is price, it will cost you $20 to buy AnyCast. If you are willing to pay this, I think add some bucks and buy Chromecast rather then AnyCast.
