HI,great video, first time i ve seen it was a couple years when i bought my s3 and now i have a big problem and i hope that maybe you could give me some answer or even better a sulution(uff that would be awsome).The thing is, when I connect my wired Xbox 360 controller to my Samsung Galaxy S3(rooted ,4.3), the lights on the controller don't stop blinking and it seems that s3 does not recognize the controller i cant do anything with the x360 controller.I have read it somewhere that wired xbox 360 controller is natively supported by samsung s3 and its the easiest way to connect x360con,now it appears that is not so easy as i tought it would be,,tried to download famous USB/BT Joystick Centre app, well that was also one of my luckiest moves  they ve pulled it from the play store :) and now i just don't have any idea whatsoever.I apologize to all for my bad EnglishEng,is not my native language.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance.

+ridovka Hi! Yes, USB/BT Joystick Centre was pulled from the Play Store, however the dev released a newer version that is still available (although that seems like a very shady move from the dev, so it makes you wonder how long they will support the new app for before the pull it and try to force users to buy yet another new version - if you do get it I would make sure to back up the APK). There may well be a custom ROM that will allow the x360 controller to work, so I would look at that too.

do you have to root the phone in order to use the xbox controller?

Didn't know the S3 was so capable.  Glad I'm still running one.  I think I'm glad... I dunno.

Can I charge my Galaxy s3 while using these features? i.e. connecting MHL plus a USB OTG and some USB HUB while my s3 is charging
Report spam or abuse
+Omar Al Arab Sorry, yes as per the video here, charging is possible while using MHL, but not USB OTG (misread your initial post slightly).

There is also a usb otg that have a charging port but don't know how to use them simultaneously

Have you ever tried a Seagate backup slim 2TB drive w/ the S3? I've been having zero luck with it.  Even tried a USB 2.0 microUSB cable to force it into a lower powered mode...
Report spam or abuse
Can I load my S3 with a USB Hub while I do something different with another USB connection?? So loading and something other stuff on one USB is that possible ? Because when I use my <smartphone in this way the battery will be empty very fast
Report spam or abuse
Yes, you can use an externally charged USB hub to connect multiple USB devices simultaneously while mitigating most of the impact on the phones battery life.

This is so weird I am watching this with a Samsung galaxy s3

To use the HDMI the TV needs some protocol or any TV can be used?
Report spam or abuse
Just needs an HDMI port and the MHL adapter, nothing special required on the TV end.

I have an otg adapter with an mini glow controller for xbox 360. I can get the brand name if needed. But I cant get it to work. Even tried it on my new HTC. Possibly the controller or is an adapter something different from the cable? If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! Note: I downloaded some type of joystick app from play store to let you map your own buttons. That will pick up most of the controls but its nearly impossible to map the joysticks every little movement. Again though even with the buttons I have mapped they dont work out of the joystick app.

+Murray Winiata just want to leave an update for my previous comment. Just recently picked up an Microsoft Xbox 360 wired controller. Plugged it into my galaxy S3 and it powered up and I was playing all my favorite games within seconds. So anyone who has a question like I did, you do need a specific controller. For the adapter vs. otg cable? Guess there's not much of a difference for this situation.
Report spam or abuse
+federalrj94 Yeah, not all controllers will work. Glad to hear you're sorted! Now all you need is a Moga controller (or similar) and an MHL cable and you can connect to an external display, emulator gaming heaven.

dude are you going to show any of these features for S5
Report spam or abuse
Is using a USB gamepad while also connected to a TV via HDMI possible? 
Report spam or abuse
Report spam or abuse
+S h e z b o t For the present time, no. The MHL spec will at some point allow for simultaneous USB devices I expect, but that will not be applicable to the S3 however.

Hello Mate, Im calling ya from the USA, Fantastic video, I have the Galaxy S3 also.Can you tell me the exact cables you used to have it hooked to the tv and at the same time hooked to a PS3 controller? Very nice video.Thanks Gio.
Report spam or abuse
The PS3 controller here is being used wirelessly (requires Root), as the TV connection is happening via MHL which occupies the Micro USB port in the phone. If you are not a Root user then the Moga Pro is the next best solution, very nice controller.

Hi , sorry for my bad english but… i have a question: How do I charge my phone?, if the hub is occupying my micro usb gs3 ? does de hub have any dc port? thanks.
Report spam or abuse
Only way to charge the phone while using USB OTG functions (or with a hub) would be to use wireless charging (I can't actually recall if Samsung ever released the wireless charger they announced for the S3).

No, not on stock anyway. Not sure if any custom ROMs or kernels have added it. Padfone Infinity the only phone I'm aware of that does ethernet out of the box.

That's an MHL adapter, an 11-pin one specifically (most older ones are 5-pin and won't work with the S3 without a small adapter to convert to 11-pin). You can buy them lots of places - Ebay/Amazon/electronics stores.

Dead Trigger should, since it has controller support inbuilt (although will depend on which controller is used).

What is the Wii Remote Controller Application you are you using exactly? Hopefully the link Or developer and app name? Exactly please. There are quite a couple. Would it work with the New, Wii U Pro Controller?
Report spam or abuse
Try connecting the phone with USB debugging enabled, and also toggle between MTP and PTP to see whether it is recognised/installs more drivers. If not I would search XDA-developers and see whether any universal Android USB drivers work (or whether there are specific Sony ones available for download).
Report spam or abuse
Several options: 1) Use a wireless controller (several available) 2) Use the Smart Dock 3) Connect to the TV wirelessly like with the Allshare Cast Dongle (not really recommended since it is not really any good for gaming as the content can't be buffered)

This phone is really awesome but even tho it has physical LED it's not that visible. I need to be in front of my phone if I want to see if I had missed call or sms. Anyway I was lucky enough and I found really great and powerful application called "Led Actor" ( if you want search on Google play). It's really cool because now I can see flashing my phone's screen even tho I'm like few meters away. And you can choose screen color also for particular event.

The Dell keyboard is actually an iGo Ultraslim Stowaway bluetooth keyboard, just a Dell-branded one with their badge on it. Sadly they are no longer made, they do pop up from time to time on Ebay but tend to be more expensive than ever when they do. The Gameklip is a good piece of kit.

With the MHL cable, how are you getting power to the S3? I'm trying to figure out how to use MHL, OTG and charge my S3 at the same time, but haven't found any way to do so. Are you using OTG as well as the MHL cable here? Or just the MHL and a charging cable?

Heh, really that stuff is the result of gradual accumulation over about 6 years!

Dear NZtechfreak, Do you find your keyboard laggy? I mean when you type on the keyboard, the words don't appear on the phone immediately, not as fluent as on PC? I don't know whether it is my OTG cable problem or all the phones have the same laggy issue. Thank you!

Not sure I'm afraid, not had a chance to spend any time with the Mini. I expect it is relatively limited compared to the S3.

hi, have you or anyone noticed any improvement by using hdmi 1.4v instead of 1.3v. Isnt the only difference the 3d function. Or is 1.4 actually faster...and for instance less lag with ganing.

No way to do MHL and USB OTG simultaneously without the Smart Dock I'm afraid (including on the S4 with the new MHL 2.0 adapter, both of which I have and have tested).
