Default Chromecast

Im planning on getting a chrome cast dongle for my N3 and I am wondering if there are any expected issues like intermittent connections and what not.

I run Chromecast daily on this phone. The only issues are due to your wifi connection itself and if you flash a custom AOSP ROM like CM, AOKP, etc depending on which one you flash or timing of the flash may have some issues relating to wifi connections, etc.

Works perfectly on stock 4.4.2 for me. Streamed YouTube no problem as well add movie files using Playto Chromecast app.

I do have an issue with Chromecast and the Note 3. It keeps disconnection after a few minutes of playing music. I think it has something to do with the Note 3 because Chromecast worked fine with my Nexus 7.

Any smart bluray or Tv with mirror cast or all share is a better deal. However, if you need to carry the tech with you. The samsung allshare cast will work better. If cost is the issue then last but not least you have the Chromecast.
