Monoprice doesn't claim compatibility of this cable with any particular Android device, but I can confirm from personal experience that it does transmit audio and video over HDMI from my LG V30S to my Samsung TV. The HDMI end of the cable may be slightly undersized as it doesn't provide a tight fit but I remedied that with a coupler attaching the HDMI end to a standard HDMI cable. Works like a charm! No need to make any settings on the phone. Just attach the HDMI end to your external device, plug the USB-C end into your phone and you're in business. Excellent build quality.
Just what I was looking for! Works great! Apples new MacBook Pro's are not easy to connect to but this cable was just what I needed. Now I would like to see an external DVD player that can connnect to the type-C USB 3.1
