Pairing with other Bluetooth devices

On the Applications screen, tap Settings CONNECTIONS Bluetooth SCAN, and detected devices are listed. Select the device you want to pair with, and then accept the auto-generated passkey on both devices to confirm.

Sending and receiving data

Many applications support data transfer via Bluetooth. An example is Gallery. Open Gallery, select an image, tap Bluetooth, and then select one of the Bluetooth devices. After that, accept the Bluetooth authorisation request on the other device to receive the image. The transferred file is saved in the Download folder. If a contact is received, it is added to the contacts list automatically.

Screen Mirroring

Use this feature to connect your device to a large screen with an AllShare Cast dongle or HomeSync and then share your contents. You can also use this feature with other devices that support the Wi-Fi Miracast feature.

This feature may not be available depending on the region or service provider.

Miracast-enabled devices that do not support High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP 2.X) may not be compatible with this feature.

Some files may be buffered during playback, depending on the network connection.

To save energy, deactivate this feature when not in use.

If you specify a Wi-Fi frequency, AllShare Cast dongles or HomeSync may not be discovered or connected.

If you play videos or games on a TV, select an appropriate TV mode to get the best experience.

On the Applications screen, tap Settings CONNECTIONS Screen Mirroring. Select a device, open or play a file, and then control the display with the keys on your device. To connect to a device using a PIN, tap and hold the device name to enter the PIN.
