We here at Geek Chunk used the cable that came with the Samsung Galaxy S III to connect it with a larger display and found that it did so wonderfully without any glitches or effects. We then attached a Bluetooth keyboard and a mouse to make a makeshift personal computer. But did find that it was very hard to get the perfect screen size to match our screen but this we attributed to the television that we were using and not the device. But the fact was that we could easily see our home screen etched over the television and scrolling through the screens was simple and fast as if we were using the device with the only difference that it was on the larger screen. And the fact that it was on 1080p was marvelous.

We then started to use the device through the peripheral devices that we attached with a Bluetooth connection and started using various apps and features. We started with the browser. We browsed easily around through the use of our mouse and also the keyboard. We tried YouTube  and easily without any hassle could playback videos on it. We also accessed the Play store the app market on the Android and easily scrolled through it by using the keyboard. Once we came out we tried other apps like composing messages  and this was brilliant as we had keyboard in hand and could easily type at a far greater speed.
