    Has anyone had success with Miracast on the Nexus 5? I currently have an LG G2 but Miracast gets hot while I'm streaming Netflix. Just wondering if the N5 will do the same thing.

    To stream netflix (and other apps), chromecast may be a better option. It puts almost no strain on the phone, because your phone isn't doing the streaming.

    The problem is, I don't have wi-fi so Chromecast won't work for me. I had a Note 2 & streaming to my tv worked just fine until the latest update. It killed that feature. But up until that point I never had a problem.
