Who said keeping up with the best and latest was cheap? No one. Which could possibly explain why Samsung decided to change the MHL pin connection layout on the new flagship phone.
According to Clove, if you already have one of the old cables and use it with your Galaxy S2 or Galaxy Nexus, you’re going to have to surrender to Samsung and fork out £20.82+VAT. In the US of A – Merica! – that translates to around $38 of your hard earned dollars.
On the bright side, because the Galaxy S3 is one of the most popular phones ever made, I’m sure that if you’re patient enough you’ll be able to source one out from your favorite Chinese seller on ebay for a fraction of the price.
