Yes, sure.
The phone gets hot even though the video player plays the video only on the TV and the phone screen turns off.
Also, it only charges slowly when connecting the charger to the dongle.
Compared to Miracast there is no delay but I have to leave the phone next to the TV as the cable isn't long enough.

thanks, now I know what to expect. no Lag is the main reason I choose this over miracast and chromecast. I might get chromecast in the future though.
