    How does casting work? Is it possible to find a video on the net and put it on tv? I haven't seen anything about that but am willing to give it a shot.

    the term casting can mean two things. it can be referring to the technology called miracast or the term can refer to google's chromecast.....

    miracast will depend if your device supports it or not....while chromecast just needs the chromecast device hooked up to the tv and an available wifi connection

    I checked both the A20S and that new phone and neither seems to have it. If it's in there it must be hidden really well. Maybe the cheaper stuff doesn't bother, but a $200 phone...

    even if a device supports it, i have seen issues with miracast. google chromecast is so much easier to use, but it does require wifi. its all i use in my house all my tv's have a chromecast device......been thinking about upgrading to the chromecast with google tv cuz it comes with a handy remote.
