Is there a way that is relatively lag free to show your Android Phone's screen on your PC.

I have tried a lot of different programs but they are all far too laggy and unusable.

SideSync works well, I'm not sure if it works for non-Samsung Touchwiz phones though. If you just need the phone's display on a large screen, you could consider mHDMI or MHL output to a suitable monitor or TV?

What Samsung device are you running it on? My S3 is apparently incompatible

Edit - Found the answer. Needs 4.4

Awesome

There is a way you can do it with ADB and a java app. Don't have the details on me but Google is your friend. Doesn't need root, which many other screen share apps do

Chromecast works well but has slight lag but hardly noticeable.

I was going to say another option might be BlueStacks.

I demo'd this a while ago, and was impressed.
