    Hi All,
    I´m just curios..I read a comment on some site about how some users are trying to unlock their phone´s with a dead screen and they were saying that everything seemed to be working fine but that they can´t see the mouse pointer on the screen of their PC. They said something about using an HDMI adapter. I have also read that in order to mirror your phone to your PC it has to be unlocked or else it won´t work, so these people are basically wasting their time, right? Thanks. ;)

    Depends on the phone and how they are viewing it on a PC. A Samsung phone with SideSync enabled can see even the lockscreen on a PC and unlock it from there.
