Android to TV (HDMI), question about the resolution...
Hi new here to the forums, have a pretty basic question I'm hoping someone can assist me with! I'm not the best at explaining myself so bare with me and sorry in advance!
Let's say my Android phone is 1080p
and my TV is 1080p
and I'm connecting my Android device to my TV via HDMI and it's in 1080p resolution...
My question is, will the resolution of the Android interface (GUI) change as well? Example: On a Non-HD Android phone, you'll have maybe 6x6 (rows/columns) of icons... on a HD Android phone, that pretty much stays the same (Why would you want 12x12 of icons on a 5" phone right? it'd be way too small to see all those icons)
So if your Android is connected TV in the same 1080p resolution, will it now display more icons? Or is it pretty much just mirroring the exact look of your phone? On my PadFone, it changes the entire interface from 'phone mode' to 'tablet mode'... That means when the phone is in the tablet, you now have tons more icons, tons more space for widgets, etc, etc... same resolution, but allows more space to be used.
Does that make sense? I'm trying to find an alternate setup to my PadFone, (using a 24" monitor as the phones screen)... but I would just hate to see enormous icons take up the entire monitor (6x6), I want to see more icons, more space.
Also one other question if you don't mind, 2 birds 1 stone kind of thing...
Let's say my phone is NFC, and my computer is NFC, and they support the 'mirroring' thing... if I tap my phone to my computer, will it show up on the monitor and I can use the COMPUTER keyboard to write texts? The computer I'm looking at is the new Sony Laptop Tablet:
ty ty ty in advance!
