Sidesync is a screen mirroring app especially made for Samsung devices. It mirrors the Android device’s screen on PC. However, some Samsung users complain on its drawbacks such as, failing to connect via Wifi and more. Hence, they are looking for a different tool which they can mirror screen to computer and take full control of it using their mouse and keyboard. Below are some of the alternatives:

1. ApowerMirror

ApowerMirror is a screen mirroring tool which allows streaming of your phone to the computer. You can connect on it via USB cable and Wifi connection. It enables you to take full control on your phone using the mouse and keyboard. As well as playing games, post on your social media sites, send messages, and viewing photos and videos are possible. It allows you to capture and record the screen of your phone. Here are some steps:

  1. Go to ApowerMirror website and download on your computer. On your phone go to Google Play Store and download ApowerMirror. Then, install.
  2. Launch the application on your computer.
  3. Connect your phone to the computer and turn on USB debugging. When a notification appears asking to allow USB debugging choose “always from this computer” then tap “OK”.
  4. Open the application on your phone then tap “START NOW” button to start mirroring your phone to the computer.

2. Mobizen

Mobizen is a famous in screen recording and provides screen mirroring function. Samsung users can connect using USB cable and WiFi connection. It also allows you to control using mouse and keyboard. However, the recorded video has a watermark on it. Below are some steps:

  1. Download the application on your Android phone from Google Play Store.
  2. On your computer, go to Mobizen website and sign in. If you don’t have account yet, register.

Both Sidesync alternatives are helpful in screen mirroring. However, if you will look at these two applications closely, ApowerMirror best fits in replacement for Sidesync. There is no need for you to sign in. Moreover, ApowerMirror is very easy and fast to use.
