[Review] Analogix SP1003 SlimPort
I recently purchased the new SP1003 slimport adapter manufactured by analogix. It cost me 36 Euro including shipping from Amazon, shipped from the UK to Greece.
First impressions, this is an excellent product and it is working (almost)* as intended. Plug and play 1080p output for me (phone is rooted and running PA 3.98 - franco kernel r176).
*Only shortcoming, this is the new SP1003 version, which according to this statement from the manufacturer:
"NEW MODEL: now with fast-charge capability. SP1003 now charges your Android phone or tablet at "AC" speeds, meaning your device charges faster than before. (Must be connected to an AC adapter).
But for me, phone is charging in "USB mode", not "AC" (can anyone else with the SP1003 adapter confirm this?).
Moreover, phone gets extremely hot when using the adapter (I believe this is an issue in general regardless of adapter).
Overall the adapter does what it says and anyone who wants 1080p output from a slimport supporting phone will be satisfied.
