    Currently I have an iPhone and use the hdmi adapter to watch movies on the tv when away from home.

    I'm considering changing to an android phone and some don't support hdmi out.

    From what I have read it appears chromecast now allows screen casting without Wifi/internet.

    Can anyone confirm if they have this setup running and if it runs without any delay.

    Two phones I'm considering are Samsung Galaxy S7 and Motorola Moto X Style.

    There is no way a Chromecast can work without wi-fi.

    It's possible with the Audio CC to connect directly to it with WiFi direct. Not sure how that works with data or if it's just the audio CC that offers this.
