Android phone as surveillance

 

With Android thoroughly dominating the mobile industry, picking the best Android smartphones is almost synonymous with choosing the best smartphones, period. But while Android phones have few real opponents on other platforms, internal competition is incredibly fierce.

From sleek devices that impress with premium design, to powerhouses brimming with features, to all-around great devices, and affordable phones that punch above their weight, the Android ecosystem is populated by a staggering variety of attractive phones.

But “greatness” is subjective, and sometimes spec sheets and feature lists are not enough to make an idea of how good a phone really is. In this roundup, we’re looking at the absolute best – the Android phones you can’t go wrong with.

When we looked at the Chromecast, we determined it was worth the $35 . However, if you have an Android phone or tablet, you can turn it into a Chromecast for free with an app called CheapCast.

CheapCast is an unofficial app that acts as a video receiver for any devices on a local network. If you have Android device, you can use CheapCast to stream videos to your television without spending the $35 (or waiting months for Chromecast to come back in stock). It's even possible on most modern Android devices to stream them directly to your TV.

All of the above are required if you want to use this setup on a television. CheapCast can also be used to send videos between multiple Android devices, so if all you want to do is toss a video from your phone to your tablet, you can ignore the last three items above.

Using dual monitor set up is now common as it improves productivity and gets better while at work. A second monitor always improves you productivity by organising your workspace across different screens. With tablets becoming more and more popular, it is an ideal choice for a second monitor.

With Android tablets coming out in various screen sizes (and also Android phones coming in 5.0 inch and above screen sizes), you can consider using it as a secondary display. To extend your Windows or Mac desktop to Android tablet or phone, you need to have third party apps installed on both devices.
