Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Trying it with a Samsung Galaxy Tab using that company’s Allshare DLNA system was doable, but even clunkier than the HTC version, with slower browsing through the menus to find and play content, and no option to flick through photos.

HTC DG H100 Media Link

Needs refinement to play nice with other devices

Verdict

It’s handy that HTC’s Media Link works with any HDMI-equipped TV, and if you’re using it with a DLNA-enabled HTC phone then it’s a hassle-free way of getting your media onto the big screen. Even so, the operation could be made a little smoother and more flexible. Let’s hope HTC addresses this, and perhaps the next incarnation will make it easier to use with non-HTC handsets. ®
