Hi guys, is there a way to mirror the phone's screen to other display (let it be a monitor or TV) using USB-C->HDMI cable? Does it matter what cable to buy? Can you recommend one? Are there any caveats to this? Do I need to set the phone somehow or install some app?

Thanks a lot

It will just work from my experience...
I've also bought this thing: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It works as dex station if connected to power supply and as hdmi if not.
The only bug for this is that it slowly discharges your phone even if it's connected to power...

it works, you don't need a Dex pad anymore.

I believe any usb c to HDMI will work, but I would recommend using a wireless charger with it.

Probably better off just getting the dex station cause either way you go it would be the same amount of money cause I wouldn't recommend going cheap

I know it's ridiculous to ask; but would a NIntendo Switch Dock actually work? Considering it's similar, and the board can be taken to a Very small case, essentially, a mini dock

In Android Q beta, you can get DEX by using your regular USB cable with the PC
