GONE are the days of watching films and shows solely on your telly, replaced by Netflix binges on your blower or laptop.

But nothing can truly match the big screen experience – which is why mobile mirroring is the one smartphone trick every gadget addict should master.

With it, you can project what you're watching on your smartphone on to your much larger telly, making it perfect for streaming movies, showing off your holiday pics and even playing games.

The easy-to-use feature is already available on a growing number of set-top boxes, smart TVs, consoles, and dongles – here's how to use it:

How to mirror your smartphone on Smart TVs

You can beam your smartphone display on to a bunch of compatible smart TVs through the HDMI port labelled MHL (which stands for mobile high-definition link).

All it takes is a cheap MHL cable that turns your mobile's connection to an HDMI connection: plug the USB-C side into your phone and the other end into the TV's HDMI input.

And voila, you've got yourself a smartphone mirror.

The official MHL website states that the tech will also charge your phone when plugged in and you can use your mobile as a game-pad when playing mobile games.

Just be sure to check the cable you're buying is compatible with your phone.

For iPhone owners, there's a £49 Lightning Digital AV adaptor on the Apple Store, which requires a separate HDMI cable for the process to work.

PSA: always make sure to check the product specifications to ensure the cable your're buying works with your device.

A crop of Samsung  smart TVs also come with wireless mirroring bundled in. But this only work with supported Samsung phones.

How to mirror your smartphone via set-top boxes and dongles

The following set-top boxes and streaming dongles also let you wirelessly stream your smartphone on your telly:

  • Apple TV – This is the best bet for iPhone owners who want wireless mirroring. Apple's Airplay streaming tech makes the magic happen. Make sure that your iOS device is connected to the same WiFi network as your Apple TV. Then swipe up from the bottom of the screen on your iPhone to bring up the control center, tap Screen Mirroring, and then select your Apple TV from the list – if an AirPlay passcode appears on your TV screen, enter the passcode on your iOS device.

  • Amazon Fire TV – This only works with Android devices and Amazon Fire tablets:  On your Android phone, select Settings > Display & Sounds > Enable Display Mirroring from the Fire TV menu. On your Android device, connect to your Fire TV. To stop mirroring your Android device screen, press any button on your Fire TV remote.

  • Chromecast – Google's £30 streaming dongle is cheap as chips and boasts a "cast screen" function that's simple to set up. Just install the Google Home app on your blower, connect both the dongle and your mobile to the same WiFi network, on the Google Home app select cast screen/audio, tap on the blue button, and select the device you want to connect to.

  • Nvidia Shield – Nvidia's 4K Android streaming box has Chromecast built-in, so the process is the same as the above. Just make sure you've turned off any power saving options on your phone too - they can reduce available processing power and mean streaming won't work as it should. You can also just stream certain apps, such as Netflix or YouTube using the same method, but rather than opening Google Home, open those apps and tap the cast button.

How to mirror your smartphone via gaming consoles

The following consoles let you mirror you smartphone screen on your TV using unofficial third-party apps:

  • Xbox One – The Xbox One doesn't have built-in smartphone mirroring functions, but you can get around that by downloading a third-party app on your phone, like AllCast Premium for Android (£3) or AirServer for iOS devices which costs £14.99.
