Screen Mirroring is a great feature that can be used with any modern-day Smart TV. It’s a feature that lets you mirror your phone’s screen to the TV. You can mirror out documents, presentations, images, audio, and video as well. Since LG Smart TVs have a nice vibrant display, it makes perfect sense to be using the TV as a presentation screen as well.
