Can I connect the Z1 compact to a TV?

I think there is a wireless option, but I think that would induce lag (for gaming) wouldn't it?

I don't see anyway to connect it to the TV with a cable, am I wrong?

Was thinking of using a PS3 controller and playing GTA on my widescreen.

TV is Panasonic VT65.

Thanks.

I think it's as simple as using an MHL cable/unit. I grabbed one of these from Amazon a while back and has worked on a few of my phones. Below is an example. This unit plugs into the MicroUSB port of the phone, and outputs to HDMI. This unit also may require power from a microusb charger though, so check that out.

Exactly

Without lag for gaming = MHL over USB
With minimal lag = Miracast / WiFi / Screen Mirroring

Nice.

GTA is 720p on Android as far as I know, and the Z1c is only 720p anyway...

What about the PS4 controller?

Can we not connect that to the Z1c wirelessly?
