Mirroring a Samsung Galaxy Phone to a Non Samsung Brand TV requires another hardware that you need to purchase since Sony TVs does not have all share or all cast for you to mirror and share media files.
You can purchase 2 types of devices for you to mirror your phone to your television. One is for wired and one is for wireless mirroring from your mobile phone to a larger screen.
The first option is by using an "MHL Converter". This converter is by using your USB cord that came in the package that will connect to the MHL and to connect your MHL converter to your Sony TV via HDMI cord but the phone must be connected to the via USB to mirror what you are doing on phone. Either watching movies, videos, photos, playing game apps and any other.
The second option is by using a push to TV adapter that is made by Netgear. You can mirror your Android Tablet, Android Phones and even a Laptop running with Windows 7 and 8. for Android devices, it must be supported by the hardware and it should have a Built in Miracast for you to push the images wirelessly.
This adapter works very well but it must pass the minimum requirement of the said device. This may or may not work for you if your phone does not have a pre-installed Miracast.
Either of the said two methods will work for your but you need to consider which one will you will be using to mirror your phone to your Big Screen TV made by Sony. Those hardware are available in the market that you can purchase for your own purpose.
Do the following to do a screen mirroring on your Sony Bravia TV:
- open TV
- go to inputs
- choose screen mirroring
- open phone
- turn on screen mirroring (on quick menu dropdown)
- it will show that it is connecting
- phone will now mirror with TV
NOTE: Make sure both devices are connected to the same network
