You can se in this VisiHow article on the page that you will need an MHL cable plus read the section about selecting the right HDMI cable in the article.

A good option is the [M8S which is at the median price point and user friendly.

Hello. I own a Samsung Tab 3 7.0 and have trouble with the screen mirroring?

I have the screen mirroring feature on my tablet and use to be able to connect to the TV without any problems. After several months of not using the feature, I get a notice saying "failure to connect". Does it have anything to do with the updates? Thanks

The Lollipop OS update has everything to do with it. Most devices lost the ability to Screen Mirror with TV's that were not Samsung Smart TVs. They changed the Allshare/Screen Mirroring to Samsung Link. The way to get around this is to get a direct connect cable or try the patch app for Screen Mirroring that Samsung put in Google Play. You can also try the Samsung Smart View app. If these fail then put your tablet into Recovery Mode and Wipe Cache Partition. Sometimes old cache is let from the previous version that blocks the new OS from working properly so even apps or new connections will not fix the problem.

Can I view what my son is doing on my iPhone to a Samsung tab 3?

I am curious what my son is watching or viewing on his tab 3. I am always working and I want to see what he is watching live from my PC or phone. Is that app that can clone screen by Accounts?

You can do an app like Screenshare the issue is he would know he was sharing and could disable the app. You could put a spy app on his tablet and then check the Control Panel. Apps like FlexiSpy are good for monitoring secretly in the background. You can also get a Parental Control app but once again if he is older than 8, he will figure a work around rapidly.

You may not be using the proper cables for the Samsung to stream on the LG TV. Make sure that you are connected to the same WiFi with both devices. A Chromecast can help you make your LG like a Samsung Smart TV using Samsung Link and you should consider that because the device is not expensive.
